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.

    Telephone contact

    My mum passed away last year. In my dream, I was due to meet my sister but overslept. I telephoned her to explain why I was late. Her husband answered the phone but before my sister came on the phone, my mum's voice intercepted the call. She asked me how I was and how was work. I replied everything is ok, how are you? I knew she was dead so in my dream I was very frightened and cut the conversation short. I was, at the time very scared and have been spooked by the experience ever since.

    Re: Telephone contact

    I feel as if this concerns your relationship with your sister more than your mother. First of all, you overslept and missed a meeting with your sister, and that could be the unconscious telling you that you're not tending to your relationship with your sister as you should. You felt that this deserved an immediate apology, so you called her, but instead got her husband instead. I feel as if her husband is interfering with your relationship.

    Your mother then interrupted by asking of all things, "How is work?" My intuition tells me that mother was more about the material than the emotional. You wanted to cut it short, and I think this is probably where your conscious mind got stirred up a bit to tell you: "This isn't right."

    I kind of feel as if mother's death may have put a strain on your relationship with your sister, and you both reacted quite differently.

    Good dream,

    Re: Telephone contact

    To follow-up on Michael's suggestions.
    I too would look at the dream and its associations with your sister. Were there times when your mother 'interceded' in your life when it came to your relationship with her sister {or her family since her husband answered the phone? Your mother may have been, wen she was alive, concerned about the welfare of the 'relationship', especially on your behalf.

    A second possibility. At mid-life dreams tend to be more metaphorical than they would be in the earlier stages of life. Your sister may represent another related part of yourself. Her husband would symbolize masculine aspects that 'answer' the call before your feminine qualities are able to respond. Your mother could represent herself {or even a wiser you, both symbolizing wisdom or maturity}. The focus was on your welfare and your job {work}. Are there conflicts at work where emotional aspects need to be pushed aside and masculine qualities take over {being strong, assertive, demanding, etc.}?

    The possibility is the dream could be addressing both issues.

    For Michael
    You do seem to have a great sense of the dream possibilities. A suggestion. First and foremost, dreams are always about the emotions of the dreamer. Look to that as being the prime source for having a dream.
    Are you studying Jung's approach to dreams? It will help clarify the important aspects of dreams and the metaphorical references they often carry. Especially with an older person's dreams {over 40}.
    Other than that I must say I am impressed with your sense of intuition, something that is most important in 'reading' dreams. You are on the right track.

    Re: Telephone contact

    Thank you Gerard. Although I haven't studied much of Jung's works, I hope the subject will come up when I take Psychology in college. Most All of my interpretation for this dream is based on intuition, and I usually overlook metaphorical views. However, I'll think more about that thanks to your advice.
