Dreams - What They Are and Their Function
Dreams are a succession of images, actions and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind primarily during the REM stage of sleep. Dreams are unbiased, spontaneous products of the unconscious, outside the control of conscious will. The act of dreaming is physical but the contents of dreams is psychological. They are NATURAL expressions of the dreamer's emotional/personal life illustrating experiences that possess strong emotional energies. Although there are literal applications in dreams the primarily language is symbolic, metaphorical of the dreamer's emotional energies.
  • 1. Dreams are about the emotions, emotional energies of the person who is dreaming. They offer advice and a deeper understanding of our waking life as well as the foundations for the emotional energies of the dreamer.

  • 2. The language of dreams is symbolic, but also with literal applications {literal waking experinces}. The symbolic images and actions are metaphors for the patterns or motifs for the dreamer's emotional/psychological/physical life. Every character in a dream is a different aspect of an unacknowledged aspect of the dreamer and/or a prevalent situation in the person's life involving actual persons/experiences {dreams will address both aspects}.

  • 3. The purpose and function of dreams is to guide the conscious self to achieve wholeness and offer a solution to the problems in waking life. Solutions to problems and conflicts from everyday life, as well as the deeper underlying issues, 'emotional injuries' that stem from the foundations of the dreamer {early life experiences and trama experiences in life}.
    ---Dreams attempt to reveal the authentic emotions and feelings that are often concealed from the conscious mind.
    ---Dreams compensate for conscious attitudes and personality traits that are out of balance.

  • 4. Dreams are intentional. Nature provides us with dreams to understand and help heal emotional conflicts/issues. Just as the body has the immune system to heal and protect, the psych{ology} has the dream.

  • 5. Dreams possess 'Archteypal' representations. Archetypes are universal, original patterns and images that derive from the collective unconscious and are the psychic counterpart of instinct. An archetype is an inherited tendency of the human mind to form representations of mythological motifs-representations of the symbolic images/actions without losing their basic emotional pattern. Dreams and mythology share the same archetypal images, myths as illustrations of the universal patterns and dreams as illustrations of personal patterns.

  • 6. All dreams have at least two meanings or applications. One is the symbolic representation, metaphorical of the emotional energies, and the second being a literal application where a person, place or experience is addressing a real life experience.

    Dream where my family members would die, soon after they would.

    I have never been able to fully explain these experiences I have had in the past. I had these dreams over 10 years ago, but they still haunt me. I first dreampt that my stepmother was trying to rob our house, it was dark, and she was banging on the door she could not get in. I ran to the door to open it and her head popped off like a barbie dolls would and rolled around the ground. I instantly knew she was dead. Dont remember anymore of that dream but the weird part of it was I find out a few days later (in the local obituaries) that she had died in her sleep from overdose of sleeping pills. At this time my mother, sister, and I had no idea where my dad and my stepmother was nore did they know where I lived. No contact for a few years prior. If you were wondering my fathers parents put in the obituary add, my father and stepmother turns out was living out of state.

    Coincidence right? Well it happened again. Not sure really how long after that, I have a dream that my cousin was dead, dont know how I just know she was something told me this in my dream. I am not sure if there was a visual, sometimes in my dreams there is no visual...hard to explain. Anyway, the next day I get news from my uncle that she was in a car accident (the night I had the "dream"). She was thrown out of the windshield.

    I know it sounds like this is made up, if someone was telling me this I would find it hard to believe. I have never told these things because they are just too freaky. Please help me understand if you can.

    Re: Dream where my family members would die, soon after they would.

    The fact you used the term 'haunt' may provide a vital clue to your dreams. And since they began 10 years ago we can probably use that time frame to help determine the source of the 'haunting'.

    The 'dream' emotions of your step mother robbing your house most likely reflects unconscious {if not conscious} feelings toward her, she is robbing you of something {the house being your house, or your 'family' house}. Did you have conflicts with her or conflicting emotions toward her? Her head popping off may reflect your impressions of her thinking process {Barbie being a blond may reflect a 'dumb blond' attitude}. Although she may be your step mother she is unconsciously 'dead' in your opinion.

    The 'haunting' feelings may be as much your feelings toward your step mother as it is any abilities to 'see' events.

    As for the 'coincidences'. Dreams don't normally predict the future but some people do have 'insights' to the possibilities. If these two dreams are the only unconscious pictures of such events then I would think they were merely coincidental. But if you have them on a regular basis your psyche may have the unique ability to 'see' events before they happen. But even if that is true it most likely would not mean you could do it at will. Your dreams were not predicting the 'deaths' of people, there were reflecting the deaths after the fact. Some are capable of such 'seeing' {although rare}, just as an animal is able to sense earthquakes, tsunamis or other earth vibrations.

    Back to the 10 year time frame. Was there anything special about that time that may have caused you to realize your dreams may be 'seeing' events?

    Unless you do have regular dream events of 'seeing' I would cast my vote that these dreams being more coincidental.

    But on the other hand!

    Re: Dream where my family members would die, soon after they would.

    I did have conflicts with my stepmother that is true. I was getting married only months after graduating high school, I did not know where my father and stepmother lived but I asked my grandmother to get my father to call me. He did call from a cell phone & I invited him but not my stepmother, I needed him to walk me down. He refused and told me if she is not invited he is not ether. That was the last contact I had with him untill she died. I had always blamed her for that. LOL I did think of her as a dumb blond at times. Its real hard to say if there was any explanation to "see" events at that time it was so long ago. Also I dont remember dreaming about her before this dream but that does not mean that I didnt, this one just stuck out in my mind because the event that acually happened after.

    I guess the reason I remember dreaming of my cousin like that is because the stepmother dream always "haunted" me I may have just related the two. I have had family members pass since and this has not happened again, however none of my other passed family members died so shockingly and unexpected.

    Re: Dream where my family members would die, soon after they would.

    I have other opinions about this...if I might share and be weird for a second.

    I believe in the collective conscious as well as unconscious. Jung had some great views, but I think there might be more to it that that..

    Sleep is bizzare. But, I don't think you're crazy. The same thing has happened to me along with a couple of other really intense supernatural things involving dreams. feel free to email me @ if you want to know about them.
