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.

    abandoned house

    I had this nightmare two nights ago where I was
    walking through this high grass in a field.
    As I was walking, I spotted this small farm type
    of house that looked abandoned.
    Being curious, I came up to it and noticed that no
    one was around.
    I had looked in all the windows and saw no one.
    I tried the doorknob and it was unlocked, so I
    went in.
    There were 7 small rooms and it was a really weird
    place...something from the *hippie era* decorated
    in flowers everywhere.
    I stepped into one of the back rooms and noticed there
    was a round circle in the ceiling and as I looked up, someone's eye was staring at was eerie!!!
    I froze right in that spot for a moment and then started to slowly approach the door I came in to get the hell out of there.
    When I went to the door, I could not open it. I looked out the window and there were a whole bunch of towns people leaning against the I ran to the back door and the same thing happened.
    I had my cell phone on me and tried to call for help, but the darn thing was dead!
    I started screaming, "let me out of here...."let me out of here....and then that is when I woke up....dream ended...all I can say is that this dream was a *dilly* and what could all this mean anyway?????

    Re: abandoned house

    Either the dream is addressing some past experience{s} where you felt trapped and could not escape or it is symbolic of some part of you that has 'been locked away' and has you trapped and unable to consciously 'recall' exactly what it is that has you trapped {unable to do so because it was a frightening experience}. Your conscious mind may not want to remember it {crowds of people leaning against the door}. A good chance it is doing both.

    The number 7 may be important. And the 'hippie era' felling of the dream. The need to be let out may be about the need to let out these past emotions so to continue in your personal/spiritual growth {high grass in a field}. Look back to your past {especially 'hippie' related experiences} and see if the dream may be related to those times in your life. The 7 could possible be addressing the '70s' {1970s}.

    Re: abandoned house

    Thanks Gerard for answering my dream post! I am definitely going to look back at that time and see
    if any thing could have caused me to have this dream.
    I did get married in 1972....eventually after having five children, there were 7 of us in the family...but I believe this had more to do before 1972...maybe when I graduated high school in 1966...I am going to see what I come up with. Thanks again!
