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.

    I slept great last night but had some weird dream that is addressing to something.Need your help to what you might think it could be..

    FIRST dream I was standing on to something and I can see a calm water. I also saw a rhinoceros coming at me starring me in the eye. I wasn't scared and it didn't look like it was gonna attack me. It just came from the water and walked towards me..Then I saw an elephant who was also atarring at me in eye. I was amaze at the elephant. It looked like as if the trunk had bowed to me. Then it was lots of dolphins one looked as if I was one or riding it.I could only see and felt I was swimming with them. Then there was this huge one who seemed to watch over them..That was it..


    To see a rhinoceros in your dream, suggests that you need to forge ahead toward your goals and do not take "no" for an answer. Do not let any obstacles sidetrack you from your destination. You need to be more aggressive.

    Re: Mammals

    You may have hit upon something that fits with your dream 'rhinoceros'. It may be the need to forge ahead is changing those conflicts in your life and not be sidetracked by events that may want to throw you off track. These emotional conflicts are staring you in the eye {literally as well as metaphorically} and to back down from either one would not help solve those problems.

    The inner rhinoceros would be your own inner conflicts while the outer may be your relationship with your husband, and those related experiences that are causing much of the inner/outer conflicts. The inner is an unconscious adventure {water}.

    But the dream opens up with "I can see calm water". This may suggest that talking with your inner self, as well as talking with your husband, is paying off. There is slow progress, but progress none the less.

    Another positive aspect of the dream is the elephant. The elephant is a symbol of 'intellectual wisdom', unconscious wisdom and strength. Just by examining your dreams you have placed yourself on a track of healing, discovering within yourself the negatives and the positives that will facilitate that healing. You are swimming in the unconscious, the self examination that has true healing powers. The elephant bows down to this aspect of your psyche.

    The dolphins are also a positive aspect. Inner awareness, healing energies, spirit guides. You have this 'huge one' that is watching over you. In mythology there are the helping hands that are available to those who stay the course {self examination}. This is the hero/heroine path and by participating in your own self discovery you are participating in that heroic pattern of behavior that the myths speak of. May sound far fetched but it is the way of nature.
    Stay the course and there will be balance and harmony in your life.

    One last thought. You state your husband is trying very hard to control his anger. His awareness of the causes of his anger is one way to help in that endeavor. It is your persistence and desire for a 'whole' and happy family that is driving his actions. That is a part of the task before you, taming the wild animal within him.
