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 daughthers dream

    When I was taking my daughther to school.She told me about her dream.She is 6yrs old and she said there was this little baby inside bottle now she is saying it was in a juice box (lol) she said the baby sounded evil.He had a deep voice (like a demon) she didn't know what he said but I told her to throw it in the trash and she said that if she throws it in the trash then it will come out and jump out..but she threw it away and it never jumped out..

    Is it different for kids or is it the same?

    I told her that her dream is letting her know to always listen to mommy (lol) no matter what..mommy knows best..lol she laugh

    My daughter is a good girl but theres times when she doesn't listen sometimes she tries to push her way to get what she wants. The deep voice could be from her dad..I even get scared when he gets angry..
    Could it be something else??

    Re: my daughthers dream

    julz,
    Your daughter's dreams will be different from yours in many ways. The events you decribe in her dream seems to fit with a child who has either witnessed or heard adults in an argument. A child's psyche is growing and their minds associate with things adults have long lost interest in. But emotional conflict affects all ages. Dreams will use as much of a child's imaginative psyche as he/she would of reality.
    Devils and monsters are real, that fantasy world resides in a child's mind. It is the imagination, that wonderful but sometimes frightening aspect that is from the creative mind, when given full focus in the mature waking life it can become one's bliss {including myself}.

    Has your daughter had such an experience in the days prior to the dream, possibly more than once? That could cause this kind of dream. Her world is threaten, in an unconscious way more than conscious, but emotional conflict is instilled in the psyche.

    Not that her dreams are not symbolic. They are. But the undeveloped ability to recognize things as they are, a child's mind uses imagination to 'help' describe her emotions.
    The baby in the bottle? Probably her {daughter}. A child's mind would more likely see a bottle as a real bottle, since the experience is nearer that type bottle as an infant, so the association in the unconscious psyche would use that to associate how she truly feels emotionally even though she can not express it in terms an adult might understand. Again, that imaginary psyche that still has its positive influence, and is lost as we grow older.
    Until you discovery that creative Self.

    There are the associations to dream symbols that are different in different age groups. For a child the images of myth, or in 21st century computerized games, {which represents the collective psyche} are real, and dragons, demons, devils, all those 'terrible' monsters, are real.

    The imagination is that thing that attracts a young child's psyche to the Star Wars trilogy. The universal symbols of myth are throughout. George Lucas {a student/devotee of Joseph Campbell, as am I} used Campbell's hero motif as the central theme in these popular cinema features. Children intuitively recognize the motifs, the metaphors, even the symbols because they are imprinted on all individual psyche.
    Nature is really diverse.

    As adults we know they are not real. But the challenges, the difficulties in life, the emotional life, these become the new 'monsters', the dragons that have to be slain, difficult mountains we have to climb. Each individual has at least one prime myth that demonstrates that life. And the universal myths of the hero/heroine, that path is the individual if life, a life that is lived from the spiritual/creative aspects. Instead of Mighty Mouse it is Mighty 'Me' that saves the day.

    The hero's adventure is a psychological journey

    Re: my daughthers dream

    I get what your saying..Omg! Gerard thanks! I will definantly fix this problem! This is exactly what I didn't want for my kids, sometimes its just hard to avoid the arguements. I always stick up for my kids,sometimes it scares me that she gets her anger from him. I remember last time, I asked her not to get her bad side of her father. Thats probably why Im in the dream telling her to throw it away.
    I remember crying to my husband about arguing in front of the kids. Most of the time were arguing because Im sticking up for them.Its the tone of his voice and the yelling that gets to us.The easy triggered anger.My husband is a borderline depression they say its like a bipolar. He is trying very hard to control his anger.
