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.

    Garden, cards, woman

    Last night I had a very strange dream that if you could help me understand would be wonderful!
    In this dream, I found myself standing in a courtyard. It was calm and the sky overcast, but not threatening. I felt confused as I looked around and saw dark green grass and dark gray stones all around. To my north, a terrace of steps. To my west, a stone doorway with a title carved in capitals on the top, leading to more gardens, it seemed. To my east, another stone doorway similar to the first, with cold, gray stone stairs, leading down. I never saw the south. I had no idea where to go. A heard an old woman's voice whisper, "To the court of Neptune!" Or something like that.

    I became excited, and turned and ran down into the east entrance. As I ran down the steps, which had a wall on the left, I was joined by a blond man who I do not know on my right. He was taller than me, and dressed in a beige sweater. He was smiling, and the atmosphere around him was like that of a good friend.

    I reached the end of the stairs first, and grabbed his hand and turned to my right into another smaller garden. In the center of then garden in front of us was a long, rectangular stone pool, filled with the most royally blue water I have ever seen. I couldn't see the bottom. I became nervous. The voice whispered again, saying,"Play with the cards!" And in front of us these beige, old, but beautiful cards appeared.

    I let go of the man and reached out and touched a card. Suddenly a gust of wind blew the cards into the middle of the pool and they rose into a twirling column. I ran sraight towards it, not even touching the water, but barely floating, as if I were carried by the wind too. Instictively I knew the card for me. It flew out from the whirlwind and towards me. Excited, I reached out and touched it, gently. I saw the card in the air, and it read ontop in gold letters, "BRIANA". Underneath,was a beautiful and intricate illustration of a woman's bust, slightly turned. She had flowing RED hair that wrapped around her neck, and flowers bordering her, I belive. And in that instant I wanted her, badly, almost like a passionate love. (I am a girl, and I have been romantically involved with another girl prior.)

    Then the card flew away, and I never saw the back of it. I turned my head and saw another card, twirling in the air. It said, "SNOW WHITE" on it and a picture of a golden tree and something white underneath. It swivelled, and read,"WHITE" on the other side, and darted away. I saw the blond man smile at me, and I got the feeling that it might have been his card. At this point the cards were just flying all around, and I asked, "What does it mean?". From then on, I can't remember anything else.
    I'm someone who doesn't usually have alot of detailed dreams, nor do I usually recollect my dreams very well. But this dream is the most vivid I've ever had by far. Please help me!

    Re: Garden, cards, woman

    Your dream starts out depicting your emotional calm but with possible clouds hanging over you. Although the situation doesn't seem to be 'threatening' it does seem to cast a dim light over some aspect of your life. The confusion may be a result of not looking in the right direction to solve this sober mood.

    In many mythologies 'old woman' is often a source of inspiration and a guide. In a woman's dream 'old woman' would often symbolize the wisdom of the dreamer's psyche.

    The blond man may actually represent a real person in your waking life {I am mindful of your age, teens dreams often focusing on waking experiences} or a positive masculine aspect within your self. Either way this is a positive aspect in your life. Since you are 'running down' the steps there is most likely an element of unconscious knowledge about this part of you that you are not 'completely' consciously aware of.

    blond is often associated with the feminine. The blond man may represent the masculine within the feminine psyche. This may go to gender issues.

    The cards may be the cards dealt to you in life. The old woman and the blond man are symbolic of the wisdom of the deep psyche, an aspect we all possess. They may also represent balance. Often this aspect is ignored or repressed by the ego persona because it is in opposite to the material world {old woman as a spirit guide}.
    Your cards are positive even with the darkness of some aspects in your life.

    The dream cards may be associated with your sexual identity. You state you were in a romantic relationship with another girl. But have you had a relationship with a guy? 'Snow White' may represent your virtue in that aspect of your life. And the flying cards may represent indecision on which gender you truly prefer.

    The clouds could very well be associated with this decision about relationships. Overall you seem to have a positive outlook on life but this aspect is not quite clear. The cards may be advising you to be who you really are. That true aspect would be the beautiful cards.
    Underneath,was a beautiful and intricate illustration of a woman's bust, slightly turned.
    Within the unconscious is that true self {with an accent on underneath}.

    But confusion still reigns. "What does it mean" suggests there is still not clarity to this question.

    In mythology the hero/heroine always seeks that true self. Perhaps this dream is directing you to look in that direction.
