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.

    My X-boyfriend with mermaid

    Once again dream that I am driving to my parents home. Ahead of me X-boyfriend...with his arm around a girl...kissing her as he drives. ....My parents are driving behind me..but don't see me. I decide to follow him and the girl..but hide so my parents don't see me doing this. as i am following him and girl..the streets turn into rivers....I am driving still down the rivers...(my car might be gone...but i am still sitting in a seat and driving)..the girl is a beautiful blonde....but he looks bad..sort of like a monkey. he parks at the girls house..they go in...I see that she looks like a beautiful mermaid...I run in the house following....they shrink into a miniature size..and jump into an aquarium to hide from me...I stick my hand in the aquarium to try to grab my X...but all i come up with is sand pouring through my fingers. then i drive to my parents...and tell my sister..i can't believe he found a beautiful blonde who looks exactly like a mermaid.

    Another dream: don't know if it is same dream..or different one:

    At my parents house..rummaging under my mom's bed..there are old boxes under there..and in the closet. I find a bunch of my old paintings.....they all have a brown horse in them....they are very amateur...they are christmas presents i haven't never given..and have different people's names on them...
    one said Misty (i say...Oh that is the sister I was supposed to have that was never born. Then I want to show them to my aunt (she is the one..that encouraged me to post my dreams here). I think she will like the paintings..and I have a series of small horse paintings..I am going to give her.

    the first dream..very disturbing...why am I always dreaming of my X..and why am I always at my parent's house...(background: my first boyfriend...broken up for 3 years.......anyway...Feel like I will always love him..but he was abusive/addict)

    Re: My X-boyfriend with mermaid

    My sense is there is something you do not want to be seen, perhaps even hiding from yourself. The parents house may represent their involvement. The blond turned mermaid probably represents a desire of some form on your part to be transformed into something other than who you are. perhaps this involves issues of being accepted by others, unconscious issues that affect your personality. As for your ex. You may feel more blame for that relationship not working than you should, a problem of being accepted. Your deep feelings for him may cover up his abusive attitude.

    The second dream seems to be dealing more directly with hidden issues, things that are kept in the closet {unconscious}. Te presents that were never given, those close relationships and needed love that you never received as a child? The paintings may represent your true self, your true emotions. Your spirit needs to be freed from the emotional strain of past experiences.

    These dreams and the others you posted all seem to be addressing childhood issues. As long as they remain unresolved you can expect to have more of them. You did not give a response to the 'Guy on the white stallion' but your response to the dream 'Skateboarding boys' seems to confirm my suspicions.

    Re: My X-boyfriend with mermaid


    Yes, I think that fits me...I am always changing to be accepted...trying to fit in...not to be judged, adapting my behavior.
