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.

    Broken Eyeglasses and School Schedules

    I had two dreams last night.

    My first dream was very short. My glasses were slightly bent, so my mom and aunt wanted to fix them. They ended up making them worse than before, and I was very angry. It was at night in my house.

    My second dream was a little longer. I was in my theatre class when the bell rang to go to second. I was gathering up all my things, and realized that I forgot what class I had second period. I looked for my schedule and found two that didn’t belong to me. The first one belonged to a kid that was taking agriculture classes. The second one belonged to a kid in choir, and I remember specifically a quartet class. I finally found my own schedule, but it seemed a bit outdated. I finally remembered that my second period class was U.S. History, and just when I was getting there, the bell rang for third period.

    Hello Michael

    I will give my analysis on this subject when I get a little more info via email.

    Re: Broken Eyeglasses and School Schedules

    In order to give other interpreters a chance to know as much as possible I have posted my response to Rook's e-mail.

    First off, is there anything going on in your family environment, any feuding or dramas?
    The major drama involving mom is her refusing to quit drinking after saying that she'd slow down because of my sister's pregnancy. My sister is having her child soon, and the father is a deadbeat. The only thing concerning my aunt that'd I'd consider is that she is sometimes late with rent money, but it's not as big as an issue as it is my uncle, who hasn't payed more than a month's worth while living here for a year. But we're not going to kick him out, after all he's family.

    Are you currently, or have been working out, what step you will make next in your life in college or work?
    I'm planning on quitting my minimum wage job with little chance of progress, for a job at Wal-Mart, which gives me a ton of options along with a steadier paycheck. I've also been checking out colleges that offer a wide range of options in degrees. I know I want to go into journalism, and get some kind of degree in creative writing, but the type of journalism is what I'm not sure about. I've narrowed it down to political or psychological, both of which intrigue me. I kind of disappointed myself after preparing for a job in science to find that I enjoy writing much more.

    After sleeping on it, I feel it's important to mention that I live in a rural community with a lot of farms. Therefore, agriculture classes may be more metaphorical. I also enjoy musical theatre, anouther possible metaphor.

    Re: Broken Eyeglasses and School Schedules

    First dream:

    I can see two possible interpretations of this dream.

    The first has to do with your family situation. You are not seeing something ‘on the level’, or perhaps your perception of it is bent. The fact that your mother and aunt trying to fix it makes it worse suggests to me that perhaps your view is too strongly from their angle, perhaps you need to take a view of this issue (I am not sure exactly what it is referring to) from a more ‘balanced’ perspective, ie consider both sides.

    On a deeper level, this may suggest that what you are seeing / reading in your unconscious (in your dreams) is not being read properly. Your unconscious has tried to fix this, but perhaps the interpretation of this is now worse than before. This will lead to conflict. Perhaps if you have been interpreting one of your own dreams / dream series, you are not getting the message right. Go back and take another look.

    The second dream:

    I feel this relates to your current position in regards to your career progress. That the first period was ‘theatre’ class suggests to me that you have been acting in a role that was not really you, ie your minimum wage job. You are currently ‘gathering up all your things’ which I see as you analysing what you want to do, where you want to go, especially trying to find YOUR schedule, what you really want to do. The agriculture class and choir/quartet class don’t seem to fit you.

    The finally remembering US History does not say to me that you should take this as a career, but that to find where you really want to be you need to look at your past. Look at what you really enjoyed doing in the past and look at making a career of that. As far as I can see this probably relates to what type of journalism you ant to get into.

    The final part, the bell ringing for third period when you finally remembered, says to me a) hurry or you may miss your chance, or b) when you have figured this out (it may take a while) you will be ready for the next stage of your journey.

    This seems to fit with what you said in your email, at least in the search for what to do educationally/career wise.

    Hope that is of some help,
    Rook

    Re: Broken Eyeglasses and School Schedules

    Thanks, I kind of had a feeling that this was going to lead into my career choices after answering the questions, but after considering the metaphorical images, I later thought the schedules may actually be telling me of three different parts of me, and after reading your interpretation this fits very well. Ag could be what hits home, or the stuff I'm good at. Music classes may be what I enjoy. And the outdated schedule may be the past. I have a choice to do what I'm good at(science and math,) or what I enjoy(writing.)

    As far as the first dream goes, I believe it may be right to say that I don't like my mother, mostly because of her alcoholism.

    I think you've done a good job with all of my dreams, and I think Gerard recommended you due to your proximity to my age as well as our past connection in my earlier dreams.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Re: Broken Eyeglasses and School Schedules

    Well, if we could look at the first dream and your response, your mother's drinking habits are clearly effecting you.

    In response to this what you are seeing is your mother drinking, which is a bent view. Your mother and aunt are not helping you see things any clearer (even though they are trying). You are feeling angry about her drinking.

    What I haven't looked at is that it is night time in the house. Perhaps there is something you are 'in the dark' about. Something you don't know? Do you understand / have you tried to understand why she drinks? There are lots of reasons people turn to alcoholism. Do you know your mothers reason?

    Re: Broken Eyeglasses and School Schedules

    I've tried everything to understand why she drinks. I've asked her, and she's never really gave me a good reason. The usually says that it helps her through depression, which is the biggest load of BS since alcohol is a depressant.

    Re: Broken Eyeglasses and School Schedules

    This is a very delicate subject, and I am probably in way over my head.

    All I can see is, you are right. Turning to alcohol is not the best way of dealing with depression, but people do it. Why?

    Because it is easy, it is the easy path to drown your sorrows and escape from whatever is causing the depression. I know a great many people who have been there. Its sort of like taking panadol to relieve the pain of a headache, its not solving what is causing the pain, but it keeps you from dealing with it.

    I am not qualified to say what is causing the depression, or how to deal with it, but it may be something she does not want to face, and facing the cause of the depression may be extremely difficult.

    Rather than fighting against her because of her drinking, perhaps take an approach of supporting her to overcome it?

    This is no easy task, and just how to go about it I can not say, having never been in that situation. I can imagine that it will be long, difficult, frustrating and tedious, and I figure you would probably need someone to support you through it as well. Whether or not such an approach is feasible in itself I do not know.

    Just some food for thought.
