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.

    Tried Dying

    I was in this humungous stone room that had a bunch of little rooms off of it. And there were little channels of water like 3 feet deep in each room. Kinda hard to explain. I was with a bunch of people I didn't know. And there was this like Indian guy, he looked like and Indian/Native American, who was chasing me and these people, and the Indian/Native American had a gun and was shooting us. We were all running and swimming in the water. He killed all the other people and I was the last one. A giant stone pillar fell on my back I was crushed beneath it face down in the water, it felt like my lungs were filling up, but there was no pain. I somehow managed to escape, from beneath the pillar. The Indian/Native American was still chasing me, I managed to escape for a bit and...I tried drowning myself in the water, so he couldn't kill me. I kept trying, but I also seemed to float back up to the surface. He never got me though cuz I woke up.

    Re: Tried Dying

    watzitgona2tak to get your age? Age is so very important when interpreting dreams. At least when using Jungian psychology as the basis for the interpretation.

    Are you under a lot of stress, perhaps emotional conflicts that may be consuming you? I sense deep seeded conflicts that may have taken some control of your life and personality. You may at times be 'drowning n emotions' because of these inner conflicts.

    I'll give a more complete interpretation in the morning. These 'perceived' conflicts may be something that is deep and damaging or they may merely be reflecting your personality, a conflictive ego that is unconsciously motivated by inner turmoil but is not so deeply rooted to cause a neurosis, or worse. Your age may help determine which is true.

    As for location. Is your 'noles' the Seminoles of Florida State? If so perhaps that is a part of the conflictive attitude you possess. Been a few years since coach Bowden has produced a national champion. Winning is everything at FSU. Is it for you?

    Perhaps I am getting ahead of myself in assuming the above. Then again, maybe not. Its the little things that give you away.
