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.

    Odd sister-related dream.

    I only remember a bit of this one.

    I had just come back from a long trip, and I came upon an old wooden playground structure. My sister (10) was there, but she looked a bit older, and she had slinkies around her wrists.I know something is wrong, so I confront her about the slinkied, and demand to see what was under them. She, irritated, pulled them back. There were these gashes across both. I was really angry, but she blew it off. Since I didn't want to go home, I went into the church next to the playground with my dog. The space around everything there was all weird and misty, all in a white fog. I didn't want to go inside the actual church part, so I went down a flight of stairs to the coffee/doughnut room. It was packed full of people, and Duke, my dog, milled about. I tried to get him back, but was intercepted by people who wanted to talk. I was getting kind of annoyed, as I was in no mood to talk and had expected to find the room a little less full. I finally found Duke and make my way out.

    Now, in addition, I've been to this church before, in another dream, though it was a different mood, different reasons for being there, and it was much less crowded.

    Re: Odd sister-related dream.

    Dreams of teenagers are often focused on everyday waking events that only the dreamer can actually know about. Especially the parts of dreams that deal with real known people such as your sister {is the dream actually focused on that person or does she represent some aspect of your own psyche?}. Most often it is the relationship with that person the dream is focused, an actual experience that has occurred within the past several days prior to the dream. Unless there is something very emotional and traumatic in your life that the dream is trying to communicate such events are hard to interpret.

    What I do see as possibilities in the dream is a desire not to have to 'go back' to some daily routine that exists in your waking life {long trip, playground, "I didn't want to go home"}.
    Your sister's wrists may represent flexibility in some aspect of your life or in the relationship with her. Something is being covered up, perhaps emotions about the relationship that has left a scare {gashes}. Have there recent conflicts with your sister of late that 'scared' you emotionally? {it doesn't have to be deep seeded scares}. Has there been anger displayed on your part of late?

    The part with the dog in the church may represent your animal nature and possible guilt feelings stemming from that human aspect. Perhaps there anger feelings still playing on you and you have resisted on resolving some type of conflict with your sister {there may be the possibility your sister symbolizes a 'related part of yourself, thus the anger is directed at your own actions}. You may be looking for a way out of the conflict without any more emotional distress.

    Has there been any conflicts of late with your sister? If not what about anger in recent days? Look to these possibilities as the stimulus for the dream. Again, only you know what is happening in your waking life.

    Re: Odd sister-related dream.

    I haven't been really arguing much with my sister lately. She keeps trying to shirk her share of the chores, and cleans our room, when it's her turn, like any other kid her age: she shoves it under the bed and inside the closet. She's getting pretty angry with me about my making her REALLY clean the room.

    But the anger in the dream, if it helps any, was also kind of disappointed. I don't really know, though, if I've really been upset with her. We haven't had screaming matches or anything.
