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.

    Large Animals

    I am outside in a mountainous jungly area walking on a path of finely ground stone with larger stones on the side. I see these large animals lumbering toward me from a far off distance going the same direction I am. I feel apprehension as they are huge, but look like a mother hippopotamus and her baby or maybe a rhinosaurus. I walk more quickly. Then I see 5 large tigers running towards me in the far off distance with one roaring at me and it lifts its front right paw in a swipe. I run to a white trailer on stilts and quickly climb up the stairs and run in. A blonde man is inside who helps me in. Then I see the hippo and her baby again out the screened window. I feel safe and the hippo and baby are not frightening.

    Re: Large Animals

    The mountainous part of the jungle can be a metaphor for the challenge that you are facing ahead. You feel frightened by the hippo, which is a very misunderstood creature that is actually quite peaceful. The rhino may be something that actually wants to help, but you are afraid to face it, and by running away from it, you encounter the real threat. {the tigers} From what I gather the trailer on stilts is high on the ground, and will give you a good vantage point to view the jungle {a clearer insight of the challenge.} You are lead in there by a man, or the controlling part of you takes control to help you through this challenge. After gaining insight, you realize that the hippo is not nearly as bad as you thought it was.

    The hippo had a baby, so I might guess that you are over concerned in a paternal matter, such as worried about kids moving away, or perhaps you have a sibling who is to be a parent soon. By worrying too much, you risk a bigger problem that the subconscious is trying to tell you: keeping a child away from opportunities, not giving your sibling enough alone time. You may have to control yourself in order to see what is best for everyone.

    Angel,
    Let me process this dream and your other two posts {as well as Michael's interpretation} in my mind and get back to you later in the day. If you would respond to the other posts with their interpretations perhaps that will provide some clarity to these dreams.

    Re: Large Animals

    Gerard,

    I have had another dream about large animals before this one. They were large animals of an orangish yellowish color and they looked either like dinosaurs and rhinos or perhaps hippos too. I was peering through an opening in a very thick cement dirt wall, which I thought was sealed off, but then towards the end to my left there was an opening there. I was at first apprehensive, but then not so much. There were either droppings or vegetation the same color of the animals on the ground. Then a good friend of mine appears with a broom and starts sweeping up some of the droppings. She is known to be very organized and a bit of a take charge kind of person. As for the animals I know in the past I have seen them in dreams when in reference to future business dealings or opportunities or environment. I hope that helps to clairify. I will reply to my other post directly.

    Re: Large Animals

    Angel,
    I get the sense these dreams are addressing personality traits as well as obstacles in your life that you need to learn to overcome. It may be the personality aspects are what prevent you from reaching certain goals or tasks you are tyring to achieve. The large animals {both dreams} may represent both traits needed in performing certain tasks {all can be aggressive yet determined animals}. My sense is the dreams is pointing to a lack of these qualities. Perhaps you need to develop stronger masculine qualities {hippo and baby} so to achieve those goals/tasks in life. You may need to be both passive and aggressive in life according to te situation before you {"She is known to be very organized and a bit of a take charge kind of person"}.
    Does this fit with who you are?
