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: church dream

    Peggy,
    This dream seems to be about transformation. an important one at that.
    What you have worked to achieve in your conscious life is a transformation from the expectation of following a system of patriarchy to one of balance {in your effort to achieve wholeness}. Spreading the chemicals is the process of transformation of your extended self {deck}. In summary the conscious life has been controlled by the masculine/patriarchal system you grew up with and you do not want that to extend to your higher self. What the masculine built in the conscious life {I built that} is opposite what you desire/seek as your true self. The maintenance man is the literal person on one level but also the maintaining of your path on the higher level you are the maintenance man}. Since there has been a actual conversation with the literal person, he would represent of a transformed animus, he is giving warning not to let society dictate its rules. The transformation here seems to be a realization of the old controlling masculine and replacing it with a transformed spiritual masculine. This would be a breakthrough since the dream is pronouncing a warning about the transformation. Previous dreams have not been as direct, using symbols as clues but not with the pronunciation as in this dream {as all dreams do, they reflect the life at the time of the dream}. The masculine energies of the conscious life {which were unconsciously controlling} are undergoing a transformation. Because the controlling influences are recognized and understood they no longer have the power/energies they had. In short there is a transformation of the higher masculine, an important step in the Individuation Process {something you are participating in whether you are aware or not}. This realization brings together the conscious and unconscious aspects. A very large step in your life.

    Working with dreams can be a valuable tool in personal and spiritual growth. You are on a higher level of understanding than most and your dreams are reflecting this truth. They have revealed negatives energies and because you have been able to recognize this you are able to transform the negatives to the opposite, a positive. You feel as positive as you do in your conscious life because your dreams are verifying this tremendous transformation.

    Now to the ever evolving next stage.

    Jerry,
    Wow, I would never have gotten any of that out of that dream. The external events that played a part are my husband has A Fib which began in March and can't do what he was doing before and I have had to take over a lot of it. It has really fed my confidence as to what I can do as an old lady. This has in turn fed my artwork and my Spirit feels larger. This is exciting and I can't tell you how grateful I am that you stuck with me through this process. I would not have recognized most of it.

    Besides maintenance there is the next stage....we're never done!

    Warm regards,
    Peggy

    Re: church dream

    Peggy,
    Always great when the dream points to the positives in the conscious life. Most often it is focused on the negative since that is what unconsciously rules the waking life. When you get to that point where the dream focuses on the positives then you know you are on the right path. Even the negatives tend to have a positive spin, a reflection of how we are consciously doing things right. When I take time to remember a dream there are past experiences that I knew were controlling but because I have worked through those issues they present themselves in a different light, more of an unconscious lesson of having learned from past experiences more so than a handicap that continues to influence the conscious life in negative ways. I do see a break through in these recent dreams. Self knowledge is one of the most powerful tools.

    On the topic of art {the creative aspects}. I consider any creative activity as a spiritual endeavor. It illustrates the true being within and through our creative self we are sharing. One important lesson I learned long ago from Joseph Campbells Monomyth is when you achieve that higher place of inner knowledge, the task before you is to share what you have learned. I think of this lesson when I analyse dreams, using the inherent skills {intuitiveness-developing the skills we naturally possess} to help others realize their inner journey. A great many who visit the Dream Forum have already begun that inner search. My goal is to help point them in a direction of continued learning using Jung and Campbell {and their students and disciples} as tools of understanding. I consider myself a conduit between the difficult Jung {Jungian psyche can get really deep} and the articulate storyteller Campbell. Putting into as simple language as I can to help others understand their message. More often than not {for those like you and I who have progressed in this journey} there is an intuitive recognition of the message that fits with their journey. This shouldnt be surprising since we all are made from the same fabric and our deepest senses are ruled by the archetypes. A quote from Campbell, "Shakespeare said that art is a mirror held up to nature." And its is, a spiritual/metaphysical aspect that is transforming, the old self dies and the new self is resurrected/reborn. Gives new meaning and a shift of focus to Jesus death on the cross.
