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.

    New Format Coming Soon to the Dream Forum

    For those who are frequent visitors to the Dream Forum, I want to let you know I am not shutting down the Forum, just revamping it in a new format. This may take a couple of weeks {perhaps less if time allows} but when it is reopened it will be in a format geared to those persons 35 years old and older. These are the years of the 'mid-life' thing and the 'inner search' that so many who visit the Dream Forum seemed to be engaged in. Jungian psyche is all about that inner search and dreams are a direct link to the unconscious aspects of that search as well as the 'archetypal' aspects. Although a younger person's dreams can be important it is those who are in the throws of the mid-life issues that need to better understand their dreams and are at a point in life where the inner search can and does make a difference in the quality of life. Having experience the biggest part of the mid-life stage myself { I will be 59 in March} I have personal experience of it. And having studied for 15 years Jung's approach to the psychology associated with those inner issues I believe I can best help those who are engaged in their own search, and have the capacity to understand those deeper issues, by focusing on their issues and not just interpreting dreams.

    Interpreting dreams isn't a hard thing to do for anyone who has studied Jungian concepts and has an intuitive mind. But understanding the relationship of the dream contents to the waking life and communicating the associations so the person can understand can be. I believe my best qualities involve that communication, what Joseph Campbell called 'articulating' the speech so it can be understood. Jungian psyche can get very 'deep'. With the help of Campbell and other 'Jungian' teachers I believe I have developed the skills to help others understand Jungian concepts. And by understanding Jungian concepts a person can learn to live a more harmonious and balanced life. It is psychological first, an individual psychology. Dreams and myth are roads to learning about the individual as well as the collective aspects of the human psyche. I hope to make the Dream Forum a place of understanding of those psychologies, that hopefully will help dreamers from all corners of the globe learn to live a more prosperous and happier life. That is the spiritual concept of Jungian psyche and it is real.

    And I want to get more personal, and have others do so also. The Forum will be open to all but will be best suited for those who are interested in personal growth, spiritual nourishment and those seeking a higher level of self knowledge. People like May who are consciously engaged in that hero/heroine adventure. I see the changes as going to the next level, beyond just interpreting dreams but also interpreting the human psyche. This all fits with my own journey, one in which I feel I am ready to advance to the next level. With the help of those who have studied Jungian psyche in-depth {Justin being one those whose insights I value} I hope the Dream Forum will be that place to come to in learning about that 'heroic' path of introspection and the inner search. It is psychological first, it is all about psychology.

    I equate it to the demise of analog television to the new digital format. More to see and learn with a better quality of 'in'sights. Stay tuned.
