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.

    Interpretation of my Dream

    I have many weird dreams but this one has been bugging me for the past couple days and I was wondering if anyone could help me out by understanding its meaning. Just to warn you, it is pretty odd.

    OK
    So i am at a stadium watching a sports game which is a mix of some football/rugby type sport. It is a huge deal because the staduim is filled. Also my brother is playing with the team as a kicker which is odd because he is not very athletic. I am at one of the far sides where I see this particular girl's (who I dislike) father. He does not like me, but bothers to say hi. I respond with a hello but I move to the other side of the stadium to avoid him. When I get to the other side I see my brother by himself on the field making a small ball of mud (or snow I can't really remember). With this ball he throws it up in the air and kicks it, when it turns into a golden snitch (from harry potter). This snitch is supposed to pick someone and make them them "chosen" (for what I do not know). After this, I leave to walk around what would be the alley behind the seats where the food vendors and merchandise people usually are. I am casually talking to a random person in the crowd when the snitch chooses me. It is a huge deal and as a symbol that I am chosen Now I have this odd dark purple plastic butterfly that can fly always following me. I leave the stadium because of the shock of being chosen and go to my old US history teacher to hear his opinion. Then I woke up

    I need help please!

    Re: Interpretation of my Dream

    Vicky,
    First let me ask if there have been recent experiences where you actually attended a sporting event at a stadium? The dream may be addressing something relevant to that if so.

    On the other hand the dream may be using symbolic metaphors to address some emotional conflict in your life. Since there seems to be a primary focus on me
    males in the dream {your brother and the father of girl you dislike}, perhaps we can take that as a clue to the dream message.

    Your brother may represent an aspect of your psyche that needs improving. Although in real life he is not the athletic type, in your dream he is the opposite. This may suggest you need to enhance these masculine traits within yourself. These may be traits you do not normally exhibit or do not seemingly fit with who you are {"the girl's Father does not like you"}. Stadiums are places where there are usually games of combat, or in your case conflicts. Since the Father does say 'hi' perhaps that is an invitation to reconsider these traits as something beneficial for you. You are avoiding him/them for some reason.

    In the dream it seems you identify with your brother which may suggest there is merit to some weak masculine aspect that you possess. The snitch may be your unconscious trying to inform your conscious self about this particular aspect.

    Being chosen. This may be what your weakness is. An identity crisis of a need to be a 'chosen' one. This is a huge deal in your waking life. The butterfly may be what you wish to be a positive impression of you by others.

    You seek advice from another male, a history teacher. Do you in real life think of him as someone you trust? Perhaps he represents something you can trust within yourself.

    I get the sense the dream is addressing certain personality traits along the lines of a need to be the focus of attention. Have there been recent waking experiences where being 'chosen' was a factor? The girl you dislike may involve that actual girl but also something about yourself you do not like. Being chosen may be saying something about this need to be the 'center' of attention, which in itself may say something about the negatives of feeling that way.
    Does any of the above strike a cord with your actual waking experiences? Your age makes it difficult to understand what is going on in your head since dreams of teens often focus on outer waking experiences. Such experiences are not often spelled out in a dream and only you know the associations to them.

    For some background info on dreams which I highly suggest you read to get a better understanding of how dreams function:

    Vicky,
    I am getting an unusual number of dream requests from younger people and would like to determine if possible the source that led you to my Dream Forum. Could you provide the source or reason how/why you happened upon my site?

    Re: Interpretation of my Dream

    Gerard,

    Thanks for the insights!

    I have not been to a stadium lately but I play alot of sports. For the masculinity part, I do not think that is the problem because I am currently a highly recruited field hockey athlete and am more of the tom boy type.
    Well I have to go but thanks again!

    I found this site simply by doing a google search for dream interpretations and your site popped up.

    Re: Interpretation of my Dream

    Vicki,
    You seem to be missing the point. The need to be recognized is a personality trait. There may be too much of an emphasis on this aspect. I'll address it in more detail later.

    Re: Interpretation of my Dream

    Vicki,
    To follow up on my last post. The personality trait that I spoke of, the masculine aspects, may be advising you there is too much of that in your personality.
    The deeper aspects of being 'too masculine' may be seen in your personality. If so then it could very well be a deterrent to a balanced psyche. The girl you dislike in your dream may be yourself, your feminine aspects. The term 'snitch' conjures up derogatory thoughts of someone who defies what is true. And the need to be chosen may say as much about your masculine self as anything. Too much emphasis on that can lead to an out of balanced psyche.

    I am afraid you may not understand where I am coming from. Perhaps a little more study of Jungian psyche will help. Again I direct you to my page A Simple Guide to Dreams. Start there, if there is an interest to learn more about yourself. It may not matter much in the present but later on it may be very important in understanding who you are.

    A last inquiry. Does sexual preferences inter into the equation?
