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.

    Church Goods!

    Hello!

    First of all, thanks for the work here on the site. I like coming here specially because it's trustful and interesting! Now, to the dream!

    So, I dreamed my boyfriend and I spent the night at a church. The overall feeling was a bit dark and uneasy.

    During the night, we had discovered that the priest was keeping the donations hidden, he wasn't giving it away.

    It was a weird church with lots of pillows and there was also a silent screen, but I couldn't guess what was on.

    So we went through the bags and I found some books I liked and took it to myself, as well as some ripe fruits, which I gave to my boyfriend.

    I never dream of churches, so I got pretty curious.

    What can you say about this dream?

    Thanks!

    Natalia,
    I am pleased to hear your sentiments about the MDS Dream Forum. I strive to please and to make your visits enjoyable and informative.

    As for your dream.
    First look to spiritual aspects to see if there are any waking connections involved. I don't think that is the message of the dream but it could be.

    The overall feeling about the dream church probably says as much about the dream as anything {dark and uneasy}. The church most likely represents some aspect of your psyche, possibly that inner sanctum where values and principles are involved.

    Since your boyfriend is with you in the dream there may be an aspect to that relationship the dream is attempting to address. The priest may represent external prohibitions governed by those inner values and principles you hold to. Donations are something you give freely. To keep them hidden and not give them away may involve something that has to do with your bf relationship. Are there pressures in that relationship where you do not wish to 'give' of yourself something you hold of inner value? The ripe fruits may say something about what is wanted by him. Does that fit somewhere in the relationship with your bf?

    Re: Church Goods!

    Hello!
    Thanks for the reply!

    As for the spiritual aspects, I had decided to get back to my previous life style, which was tao-oriented. I even let go of my job in order to get in touch with the values I used to live by. And it's not being so easy.

    Since I started this relationship, my values have undergone a great deal of metamorphosis. Looks like all that I had set for myself is no longer around. I'm feeling very lost, to tell the truth.

    But it's not all bad, since this relationship is very important to my growth and it's making me happy and loved.
    The hardness is that it turned into top priority and I never expected to have a person in my life as top priority, besides my mother.

    The night before, my boyfriend dreamed we were arguing at a gas station, then I took a red taxi. I was going away by myself, but then he saw me flirting with the taxi driver and decided to jump in.
    Suddenly, the taxi was downhill and I was the only one to scape.

    I wasn't full aware of this things so far. I guess what you said is pretty accurate.
    Thank you!
