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.

    Recurring dream +

    Hi, I've had this gay orgy dream many times, and the same way it seems like. It started when I was 10 and ended when I was 15. The room is tinted orange, or maybe the entire dream is tinted orange. At the end of the dream is this needle of heroin.

    I've never done heroin. I'm not gay or bisexual, I have however experimented (it is 2008 though this was after the dreams started).

    This dream has been in the back of my head though since it started, and this dream was brought up the other night with my roommates.



    Another dream I'm curious about (while I'm on the subject)..

    I was riding my bike around town and I ran across these people in yellow and black clothing. They chased me but I got away and ran into my cousin in an alley way. She brought me back to our house (I was living with my aunt at the time). Then I'm at the fence with my uncle defending the block with a rifle. My aunt is in all red clothing (sweats?) and she's escorted into a nearby house to hide. My cousin is across the street in the big park/school with a sniper rifle getting the drop.

    Suddenly a car does a drive-by and my uncle is wounded. His entire leg has bee amputated. I duck down in an attempt to reattach his leg. Instead we end back up on the fence line defending the block again.

    The fight is over and I'm being escorted through an underground tunnel made of concrete (maybe the sewers). It opens up into a cavern where several groups of people are sitting around openings from diffrent tunnels, each group had a diffrent color clothing. I took my seat infront of the orange clothed group. A man walked into the center of the group and started talking. The focus was brought on me.

    Suddenly, I'm running from these people Primarily white with black details and such. They're entire body is white. I run down an alley and it's a dead end. I turn to go over a fence when it's knocked over and more of these white and black people surround me. I give up and then they bring the gun up to kill me. I wake up.


    Thanks for all replys.

    JuntoPaladin,
    It may the morning before I interpret your dream. But I will address the first part of your post. As best I can.

    You beat me to it {reposting your dream from Discussion Forum to Dream Forum}. That's fine. My internet service has been off and on today. I do want to provide an interpretation and seeing it here would remind me to do so. Thanks for reposting it.

    You say the dreams began at age 10 and ended, at age 15. Have you had them since then {you r 21}.?

    Gay can represent several things. Sexual guilt. Actual sex ual desires. For an older person it could represent 'stifled creativity'. In that case it pointing to as much the feminine aspect {creativity} as the masculine.
    And it may symbolize a psyche imbalance.

    The heroin could suggest some type of emotional addiction, or even a physical addition. It doesn't have to be drugs you are addicted to. And there is a good chance it is as much unconscious as it is conscious. The needle may represent the need for conscious realization of the unconscious motivations {puncturing the unconscious}. And because it is an injection, going in, it is going inward, a psychological condition.

    You say it has been on your mind. Your experimentation. Do you think the dreams may have influenced your decision to do that? Have you thought about it often since? Wanted to experiment more? Motivations to sexual activity can cause experimentation, and the motivations have a source, either psychological and/or physical.
    Being gay is a physical condition}

    But back to the time span of the dreams. Was there anything in your life during those years that started and ended within that time frame? There may be an association to some events, experiences during that time frame the dreams were primarily focusing on.

    If you will provide a response to my questions it may help us understand these dreams. If you can provide a full 'version' of one of the dreams that would be best. I don't see any references to gay orgies in this dream but there does seem to be elements of conflict with the feminine as well as te masculine. I'll know more after I provide my interpretation. It could be addressing the same subject as your gay dreams using different symbols in doing so.

    You say the dreams began at age 10 and ended, at age 15. Have you had them since then {you r 21}.?

    No, I haven't had any dreams like that since then.

    You say it has been on your mind. Your experimentation. Do you think the dreams may have
    influenced your decision to do that?

    No, definitally not, drugs and crazy friends influenced me to do that.



    Have you thought about it often since?

    Not really, I let it go after.

    Wanted to experiment more?

    Nope, it wasn't enjoyable for me on any level.

    Motivations to sexual activity can cause experimentation, and the motivations have a source, either psychological and/or physical.

    But back to the time span of the dreams. Was there anything in your life during those years that started and ended within that time frame?

    No, I don't really remember ten. I started drug use and my step-brother started meth use.

    At fifteen is when I was in rehab and talked about it outloud for the first time.

    A full version of it...

    The room is tinted orange, my view is from the center of the room. Slowly my head begins to turn to the left and I see men humping eachother everywhere. Not like, bunched out but spread in a line. I remember watching a side view of two guys humping closely. Then I see this metallic looking plate with a syringe on it. I _know_ it's heroin.

    I usually wake up after that.



    When did you have this posted dream?

    The second one I'm wondering about happend a few weeks after I turned 19. I had just moved to the east coast from the midwest.

    JuntoPaladin,
    Thanks for the follow up post. It provides much info about the possibilities to your dreams. I will take that and the posted dream and provide my thoughts later today. I have a busy morning and an early start so I must put it off until later in the day.

    Re: Recurring dream +

    Junto,
    OK, let's take a look at your dream and see if we can decipher its 'code'. I am going to first look at the dream as purely symbolic and perhaps then give my thoughts on how people in your dream may be part of your waking life.

    First off I see unconscious items that seem to be needing attention. Bicycles often symbolize balance with yellow being consciousness while black is the unconscious. The town is that 'inner' space which makes up your total psyche. There may need to be a balance of what is conscious, and perhaps less aware, and unconscious, which is the true self and completely aware. Certain aspects of self are chasing you, most likely aspects of your life that have been rejected/concealed and need to be acknowledged and reconciled. Alleys are those 'dark' areas that need cleaning and are often hidden from view {in the unconscious}.

    It is the feminine aspect that brings you 'home, or to awareness. Cousins and aunts are related aspects of the psyche that may define familiar aspects in the waking conscious but are not fully known or recognized. The feminine aspect is being hidden. There is opposition to this feminine side and a desire to possible eliminate that aspect.

    Some part of the masculine has been 'cut off'. Or a desire to have it cut off. The amputation may be 'disconnecting oneself from something which should perhaps be integrated'. There is an attempt to reattach this part of yourself but it requires defending it {within yourself}.

    There is much unconscious interactions within yourself, examining all the parts of who you are. The focus may be on the ego/persona.

    You are still running away from the inner conflicts. The barriers that once concealed the inner conflict is down. The truth has caught up with you. There may be changes in store for you.

    Digest what I have offered and see if it clicks. If the dream is about those inner aspects and not waking life experiences {actual waking experiences with real cousins, aunts and uncles} the I sense it is trying to convey unconscious aspects about yourself that you nay not want to acknowledge. What that could be isn't clear and you may be the only person who can recognize the relationship.

    As for the dream addressing actual waking experiences with real people. Does any of the language describe events or experiences in your life of recent? Do you have close aunts, uncles and cousins that you associate with on a personal basis? If not the dream is most likely addressing issues of the inners self. Your follow-up comments may help to understand what they may be.

    Junto,
    The ages between 10 and 15 and the drug use. That fits with the heroine needle and possibly the heroin {you state you never did heroin} may be related to your step brother's use. And it ended at age 15 when you opened up and talked about it. Perhaps that is what is needed in other areas of your life. When you open up to others you are opening up to yourself as well and aspects that you were not aware of often are exposed. Exposing such aspects is a therapeutic function of the dream.

    Alot of this does make me think. I'm going to have to sleep on this(lol).

    Does any of the language describe events or experiences in your life of recent?

    I'm not sure what you mean by this question.
    If you're asking what the guy in the center said, the only thing I remember him saying "Los Serpentinos".


    Do you have close aunts, uncles and cousins that you associate with on a personal basis?

    At this time I was living with them. My cousin wasn't there though.

    Re: Recurring dream +

    Junto,
    I do believe your dreams are addressing some inner conflict about yourself and uses real people to help describe the experiences from the past that are associated with that inner turmoil. It may be guilt from your drug use or even the 'experimenting'. Or it may be the dreams are trying to expose something about yourself that you do not want to admit. There may be some brain structure damage due to your drug use {especially since it started at such an early age in life when te brain was still developing}.

    As for my question "Does any of the language describe events or experiences in your life of recent?" That is to help determine whether the dream is actually addressing real life experiences with aunts, uncles, cousins that may be relevant to your life and the inner conflicts. The dreams may be addressing those issues if true and may have a bearing on why you feel and act as you do. Deep seeded issues that go beyond what we have discussed.

    You state you have been in rehab. Perhaps additional counseling, with the focus on your psyche and not just the drug use, will help determine what it is behind these dreams. There is inner conflict within the dreams which means there is some type of emotional conflict in your life. The worse the dreams are regarding that conflict the more you need to determine what those conflicts are. To discover what issues you are unconsciously debating will take more than just me or someone else interpreting your dreams. But dreams are the best way to delve into the unconscious mind, as long as the person who interprets the dreams is doing a proper job. Unfortunately not many psychologists use dreams for this purpose. At least not yet.

    Many thanks Gerod, though I consciencly I have no regrets from my drug use or things I've done in my sexual life. I will bring this up with a therapist as I do see one already (go figure =P). Again, I thank you for your time.
