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: Bed and pillow dream

    Hi Jerry, and thank you for your prompt reply. There are some points in your analysis that seem quite valid but I think you should have some more background info on the matter.

    It´s a bit more complicated than that. We have already made moves towards each other in the past and have had a couple of encounters. His is a more superficial approach, mine did implicate emotional involvement in the past as I made clear from the start I did wish for something more than just an adventure. But he cannot commit to anything even as light as a few hours visit where I live. We have had endless conversations by chat on the subject of what each one of us wants, there is desire, there is affection and affinity but apparently no intention or real feelings from his side, not even an effort to urge whatever physical encounters there may be. But he won´t leave me alone either. I had to stop talking to him a couple of times in the past year in order to get over my feelings. At this moment, we are back to a "friendly online relation" after a 4-month silence from my side which he broke by speaking to me. After the initial updates, he started insinuating a possible intimate encounter but I have not really encouraged him and made clear I do not expect anything from him therefore I am not really paying attention. He now seems more serious and I did think he was going to start ignoring me but he keeps writing now and then. He claims to have been heartbroken in the past and he seems to be a workaholic so it is always work for him over the rest. For my part, yes, I desire him, but I am emotionally involved and I cannot help wanting more, so I am not sure I want to play with fire by becoming more vulnerable towards him if he is not similarly involved. So, I do not think it is lack of courage from my part, it is rather caution.

    I had worked out a rather different interpretation of the dream in my head so it is pretty interesting to have your analysis of it. Thank you again.

    Re: Bed and pillow dream

    If you will take your response and then compare it to the dream I think you will see correlations between the two. One aspect has to do with your animus qualities to do with the issue of the relationship with this guy friend. They would have to do with the confusing nature of the relationship. What do 'you' really want and how to handle his attitude. It is your masculine self that is in conflict as much as the relationship itself. I see this conflict which is identified with these two statements
    *dreamt of being in the bed {with the guy}
    *sensation of trying to have me off the bed and out of the space
    You 'desire' the relationship but don't want it to take up a lot of space in your life

    These are your conflicting emotions. What the dream is attempting to do is help you clarify these emotions. You need to use your greater strengths {masculine} to work through the emotional aspects of the relationship. These qualities would help you resolve the emotional issues within your psyche which would help clarify how to go about handling the outer relationship.

    In the end it is about the relationship and the complexity you acknowledged. It is an inner issue as well as an outer. Resolving the inner is what the dream is primarily attempting to help you resolve and by doing that you will be better able to resolve the issues to do with the relationship. The outer relationship is secondary to the inner conflict {in the dream}.
