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.

    Packed my bags, ready to go

    it's warm.
    The living room floor is a different color, a washed gray, like the concrete of a prison hallway.
    David's living room, 'everyone' is there.
    Christianna, Allen, Mindy and David, the kids, and Paul. (odd, never met the man).
    I am furiously stuffing clothes into a plastic bag, but the bag has a rip in the other side, I am onthe verge of tears, and shit keeps falling out the other side.
    Apparently, I am in some sort of trouble for hurling a laser toy at an old woman living behind us. Another elderly woman enters once from the kitchen and says 'she did get hit with it'. emphasis on the 'did', like she'd just gone to check.
    I am seriously pissed off, and for some unrecollectable reason, spit at David. My shit falls back to the floor, and as he lunges at me, the door opens, and in waddles a fat policeman. (o'course)
    When I wake up, I fall out of bed.
    Thing is, I rarely fall out of bed, as far as I know, though I am obviously a violent sleeper.
    Second, I rarely remember dreams. More and more, they become real to me, as if I'm allowing myself to 'dream' again, literally and symbolically, slowly but surely. Every day or two, I have more and more lucid dreams. This being the last and most vivid.

    Re: Packed my bags, ready to go

    Teen dreams with known persons often are focusing on waking experiences, and often those experiences are only discernible by the dreamer. If you could provide a little info on David and Paul perhaps that will clarify some of those questions I have about the dream as it relates to waking experiences. And have there been conflicts with actual people of recent {old ladies] in your waking life or are they simply symbolic images?

    Other than that I sense the dream is reflecting inner conflicts perhaps to do with personality. Clothes often represent personality traits, habits, the persona. Plastic is something that isn't strong and a rip may indicate weak aspects of your psyche that are causing internal if not external conflicts. Do you have a temper or have had an experience recently where you lost your temper? Being a violent sleeper may be an extension of your personality.

    The parts about the old women and spitting at David. Again, are there recent waking experiences involving such people? A teenagers dream will often use metaphor to address certain aspects of the dreamer's life but also address actual waking experiences that are a result or that address those same aspects. Let me know your response to my questions and then we may be able to fully understand the dream.

    As for falling out of bed. That may be simple coincidence. And if you are just now beginning to remember your dreams, that may be an indication the conflicts you are facing are beginning to overpower your unconscious mind and need to be addressed consciously.
