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.

    Seducing A Terrorist

    (Gotta post this before I forget it!!!)

    So last night I had this dream that a terrorist group was planning on destroying the United States. The head terrorist was in my house with me and a few other people.

    As always in my dreams when I'm faced with evil, I tried talking to him. I wanted to get down to why he was so full of hate and why he so badly wanted to kill.

    I guess I ended up in his lap and we started talking about kisses. I asked him if he had ever been kissed. He sighed and told me that only one woman had ever kissed him and he was very upset about that. I knew that if I gave him what he wanted, he might not destroy the US. So I started kissing him. I was completely disgusted and even now the memory makes me sick.

    Finally, when he got all that he wanted, he left. He never said whether or not he was still going to launch the attack. So we all waited, and nothing happened. I was fairly proud of myself.

    Re: Seducing A Terrorist

    Aaron,
    Since we have established that the primary conflicts you are dealing with are 'inner' conflicts, it is only natural to assume the terrorists in your dream is 'self terrorist' that threaten your whole being {United States}. It is your house, the house being you. The other people would represent the other aspects that make up your psyche {good and bad}.

    The conversation is with yourself. That take and add it to "I wanted to get down to why he was so full of hate and why he so badly wanted to kill" and you can see the conversation is about those inner conflicts.

    The next paragraph probably best addresses the major conflict.

    "I guess I ended up in his lap and we started talking about kisses. I asked him if he had ever been kissed. He sighed and told me that only one woman had ever kissed him and he was very upset about that. I knew that if I gave him what he wanted, he might not destroy the US {US, short for United States}. So I started kissing him. I was completely disgusted and even now the memory makes me sick."

    This is surely addressing the need to accept who you are. And it probably is addressing those natural desires of the human psyche that are about love and romance. You were 'naturally' upset about kissing a woman since it goes against your orientation. But being sick about kissing a guy, there lies the problem. That is what you must overcome.

    How do you do that? What do you think?

    Re: Seducing A Terrorist

    But in dreams, I have never before been disgusted while kissing a guy. Or anyone, for that matter.

    When I thought about it, the terrorist was someone I had no feelings for, except repulsion, and I was almost forced to kiss him.

    So my only explanation is that I shouldn't force myself to like anyone. I need to wait for the right one to come along. He will come. I shouldn't force myself to like anyone just because I'm lonely.

    Does that work?

    Re: Seducing A Terrorist

    Aaron,
    That will fit with your desire for romantic interests. But this is as much about 'kissing' your inner self, accepting who you are as it is romantic interests. Dreams address the different aspects that are in conflict, double duty if you will, both the outer and inner conflicts. While the dream may be addressing your desire for the right guy in your life, so to it is addressing the 'right guy' in your inner self. That guy is the one you are having a hard time accepting.
