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.

    tornados and broken glass

    i had a dream i was out in the neighborhood with my best guy friend when we heard a tornado was comming, and went into a neighbors house. in this house though i remember seeing my youth group pastor from my church with his wife and children, as well as a few of my female cousins, and some of my friends from my young adults group. i remember looking out the window watching the tornado whirl around the neighborhood and saw it aproaching us, i told everyone to stay down and cover themselves with something, the tornado then blew right by the house causing the windows to shatter but the house was still standing. when it left and i was ready to get up i remember spitting up peices of glass that came into my mouth (but no blood). i then continued to watch as the tornado kept swirl around until it finally went far away from us. everyone else was fine. no injuries or anything.

    Re: tornados and broken glass

    Hi Monica

    What I interpret from this dream is that your unconscious has percieved some event or circumstance approaching [the tornado] that will drastically alter the way that you look at things [shattering windows] and shatter the illusions of the way in which you express yourself [shattered glass in your mouth].

    As you are in a neighbours house, with a number of people from different social / family circles I would say this has to do with your social interactions. Have you had any 'emotional storms' (or arguments / fights) or radical changes in your life that have changed the way you see your friends and family, and / or has resulted in a realisation of some illusion you have in the way you express yourself to them (perhaps you don't realise the way you speak to them)? Since everyone else is unharmed it may not be harmful in your relations to them, ie you have not 'killed off' any friendships.

    Since, in the beginning of your dream, you are outside with your 'best guy friend', and you see the tornado and go inside, it could involve:

    - a realisation through your friendship with this man that has become conscious

    - some part of your masculine side (that is inherent in this friend) that has come into your conscious awareness

    Keep in mind this is in regards to the way you see and express yourself to your friends.

    Does this make any sense at all?
