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: Visitation dream

    Welcome to the world of dreams. If you have not already I suggest you read my page A Simple Guide to Dreams. It will help you understand how dreams function as well as other aspects that have to do with dreams and sleep.

    The visitation is not from the ghost of your bf's late gf but from your own psyche. At least not in the form of a real ghost. But despite that it is as good as a real visitation, one that is helping you resolve emotional conflicts do with your questions about her and more specifically about the relationship with your bf. The conversation is with yourself. She represents the positive aspects you have toward the relationship with your bf. Everything she says is what you are telling yourself. In the info you provided with the dream you stated there were questions about the relationship. Dreams reflect what we really feel and as you stated in the info you are no longer have doubts about the relationship moving forward.
    The beach in a dream is usually symbolic of connecting the unconscious with the conscious {deep water represents the unconscious}. The dream is illustrating your true objective self }grown up}. This beginning of the dream sets the stage of what the dream is trying to communicate.
    Look at it this way. Dreams are nature's device to help us resolve emotional conflicts {dreams primary function}. They are also objective and truthful {as opposed to the conscious ego which has perceptions that may be biased and wrong}. You had a conflict as to whether the relationship could progress and move forward. Although you feel it would the dream is reflecting the truth about where it can or not. Likely there is something recently that has convinced you of this truth {dreams reflect our true emotional condition at the time of the dream}. Either something occurred that was convincing or you finally came to this conclusion. I get the impression the relationship is one of 'working' the make the relationship work which is what needs to be done {sacrificing to the relationship and not just to each other}. It is a very positive dream which is opposite of what most dreams contain.

    As for why his late gf was used as a messenger. One is you probably identify with her in many ways. If not personally then because of aspects you share with your bf. She is not a threat because the 'picture' you have of her is a positive one. And that also pertains to the relationship she had with your bf. You identify with those positives. In many ways she is you {those things you share including your bf}. I dare say there may have been questions as to whether he could move on from the past relationship but there probably it never a threat {your intuitive self would know this}. When you think of her picture you can see things about her that fit you.

    A final comment. I do want to stress the dream is not about ghosts. Dreams are objective, they deal with psychology. Ghosts are not real {although there may be energies left from someone who has died-something we have yet to prove or understand if true}. What is real is the natural world and part of that is the dream as a functionary process like any other natural resource {natural being those things within nature}. Psychology is a science and science is a body of knowledge that can be proven. Jungian psyche {Carl Jung} has provided us with concepts about dreams that are based on evidence. Having worked with dreams for 22 years and having a body of work at the Dream Forum state supports my conclusions, I can say with confidence your dream is about the 'inner ghosts' you may have had about the relationship with your bf and not a literal ghost visiting you. Take the dream as a positive sign the relationship is on the right track. You are doing the right things {as 'she' states in the dream} which in itself is a metaphorical reference {dreams speak in a language of symbol and metaphor} to actual conscious life experiences. Your bf's late gf is you and you know deep within there are no doubts about the relationship {whereas often there is conscious idea it is good but deep inside there may be a different truth it isn't}. Keep on what you are doing and as long as your bf does the same it should be a long lasting, great relationship.
