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.

    What does this dream mean?

    Recently, I have been having strange dreams. The other day, I dreamt about traveling in train and it getting late to the destination…I don’t know what the destination was and where it was taking me….but the ride was quite un-comfortable. And the other one I had was celebrating with my friends in a resort…..now do the two link together….???

    Bryant,
    When I was working for local government back in the 70s I had these dreams of afraid of being late to work. Such dreams are common and yours seems to fit with that proposition.

    As for the celebration at a resort. That my indicate even more stress in your life and a need/desire to take a vacation from it all. The friends in your dream would be all of those emotional aspects of your own psyche enjoying 'getting away'. The link to the train and being late would be the stress factor.

    Re: What does this dream mean?

    Calvin,
    Fortunately your link to the supposedly 'great dream dictionary' was not complete. I say fortunately because your link is an example of dream dictionaries at their worst.

    Here is an example of what this dictionary provides, its proposed meaning of bathroom:

    Dream of a toilet indicates good luck with money or in love affairs. For example, if you feel refreshed after going to a bathroom in your dream, it is a sign that you will be free from troubles or worries of love. If you were quarreling with your partner, you will become reconciled unexpectedly easily. Also, if a big or broad bathroom appears in your dream, it indicates that you will have a chance to make a profit. Make decisions aggressively.

    What a bunch of 'crap', to put it bluntly.

    The following are from MDS Dream Dictionaries and provide what a bathroom may actually represent in dreams.

    MDS Dream Dictionary {Dan Ackroyd}

    A need to eliminate certain burdens or attitudes. Alternatively, it may symbolize purification and self-renewal. You need to cleanse yourself, both emotionally and psychologically. Dreaming that you are in a public restroom with no stalls means your frustrations about getting enough privacy. It may also indicate that you are having difficulties letting go of old emotions.

    Soul Future Dream Dictionary
    A} Any place that represents purification or refreshment to you
    B} A messy bathroom may suggest an area of your life that requires attention or cleansing
    C} Needing to cleanse or detoxify

    hyperdictionary Dream Dictionary

    Dreaming that you are in the bathroom, relates to your instinctual urges. You may be experiencing some burdens/feelings and need to "relieve yourself". Alternatively, it may symbolize purification and self-renewal. You need to cleanse yourself, both emotionally and psychologically. Dreaming that you are in a public restroom with no stalls means your frustrations about getting enough privacy. It may also indicate that you are having difficulties letting go of old emotions. If you reveal these feelings, you are afraid that others around you will judge and criticize you. Dreaming that you can not find the bathroom means that you are have difficulties in releasing and expressing your emotions.




    There are dream dictionaries and then there are supposed dream dictionaries that have no basis for reality, such as this one. Using the dream dictionaries offered at MDS you will be able to get a good idea what the dream symbol may represent in your dreams. Using the dream dictionary suggested by Bryant, well, if you believe in fortune tellers you will be able to waste your money buying into it.

    Sorry Bryant. A poor recommendation.

    I will not post the link because it is simply a waste of time reading what it has to offer.
