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.

    I had this crazy dream last night where I was upstate somewhere around where the Woodstock hippie thing took place years ago. By the way, I did not go to this either.
    There is a nice grassy field and I see lots of kids
    blankets, towels, shorts and tops strewn around.
    All of a sudden I see my daughter Valerie and her girlfriend Jessica....but she is not my daughter in
    this dream....she is another 18 year old kid going
    to hear the rock n roll band.
    Well...Valerie, Jessica and I start walking down
    the road to get to see the rock n roll band...
    As we are walking, Valerie and Jessica suddenly
    I woke up then from this dream. What could all this
    mean anyway???? Also I am 18 years old too!

    Re: Upstate

    Does it seem Valerie is headed down the same roads you 'walked' when you were 18? She may be you, and you her. Not just in the dream but in real life. Are there fears she may make some of the same mistakes you made? The part about blankets, towels, shorts and tops strewn around, does that conjure up ant past memories? Shorts and tops may be 'revealing' more than just the fears and/or desires in the dream.
    And what about Jessica? Does she influence Valerie in ways that you approve/disapprove of? Perhaps she exhibits some of the traits you possessed at the age of 18.

    Re: Upstate

    Thanks for the reply Gerard. My daughter is in Georgia and will be teaching science class in August.
    She has always *loved* school and got excellent marks...on the honor roll many of times. Her friend Jessica is in New York also teaching.
    I was married at 22. Valerie is 24 and is not
    interested in any guy unless he is totally intellectual like her.
    I, myself, hated school and could not wait to get
    out so I could get a job.
    I had crummy marks cause I did not apply myself.
    I only did good in the subjects I liked for ex.
    biology and english.
    I hated math and geography.
    Valerie is also bi-polar and I believe her dad
    is she said. His moods change from one minute
    to the next. I should know I was married to him
    for 25 years when my kids got older...I decided
    to say...."I want a divorce" and got it too!!!
