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.

    Re: Brothers


    The dream seems to be addressing aspects of your psyche that are unconsciously controlled by your father {unconsciously rule your life}. The six men would represent masculine ego/conscious aspects. You like the qualities they possess because they are like those of your dad.

    The government building {the building is you} is what rules your psyche {unconscious influences/motivators}. Again the six men would be your masculine/animus aspects {we all have masculine/feminine qualities/aspects-see link}. The newspaper is knowledge within your psyche and being cut out of your dad\\\'s death {aspects of your dad cut out of what/who he was}. You snatching it off is taking some of these aspects as your own. Looking like your brother and yourself is the influence from your dad. Half sibling is half of who you are, your masculine aspects. Not knowing how to tell you is not knowing of these unconscious influences. You embrace these qualities.

    My sense is the dream is pointing to qualities your dad possessed that unconsciously rule your life. There is a good possibility these unconscious \\\'motivators\\\' will push you toward choosing relationships with men who possess the same qualities/personality as your dad. You would unconsciously married/have a relationship with men just like your dad {unconsciously driven to do so}. Depending on the relationship with your father this could be a good or bad thing. If he was a good father {not perceived as such but in reality} then these motivators would be a positive in your life. But if he had bad habits then you will tend to choose men who are like him even though consciously you do not recognize these qualities in them.
    Note: I\\\'ve personally known women who have done this, chosen partners that were replacements for their father. Unfortunately it was one bad relationship after another and will continue this pattern until they recognize the influences.

    A response to my analysis is requested.
