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.

    the boat, the wedding dinner, and new york

    I think a lot of this has to do with memories I have about this summer. Also, I'm about to start highschool and I have a lot on my mind.

    It started out I was on a large boat ( maybe a cruise ship ) with lots of people from my town and others I didn't know. I was holding hands with this seventeen year old - on a double date I think? And my mom saw me. She said he was way to old for me. I can't remember so much after that.. only that I was having an incredible time. Next, the scence changed to me falling from the sky, I caught onto a gondala which brought me to the brooklyn bridge. I remember swinging (kind of like spiderman) towards new york. One of my close friends was with me during this entire experience. The scene then changed and I was in a different friend's living room. My mom kept calling me and I kept hanging up. Then I was at a giant dinner party... for a wedding I think. I remember ordering for my little sister and her not being happy with the food I ordered her. Suddenly, the scene changed again to my local swim club, some random guy with a brief case came up to me asking me to write down my "adventure" so he could sumbit it to be in a bugs bunny cartoon. I noticed two of my bestfriends standing next to a girl that tried to turn a lot of people against me this year. They all exchanged hugs so I found my dad in the crowd and said "Let's get outta here." And then, I woke up.

    sorry my dream is so long but it was one of the most vivid dreams I've ever had.

    Re: the boat, the wedding dinner, and new york

    Because most dreams of teens are focused on waking life experiences, and are often more difficult to understand because they do involve personal experiences that only the dreamer can explain, your impressions of this dream being about memories about your summer are important. Can you share those experiences and possible relationships you see in the dream? By doing that I will be able to delve deeper into possible deeper meanings and sort those possibilities from everyday waking experiences. If the dream is primarily focusing on everyday experiences then perhaps we can exclude anything beyond that.
