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: Flowers in a wheat field

    May,
    When you have a prediction of what a symbol means unfortunately it is a bad interpretation of the symbol. If you have a dream where you find gold and look to a dream dictionary and it states the meaning is you will find success in your business life, throw the dictionary away. Dreams seldom predict, they compensate what you already know {albeit unconscious}. If you know as a matter of 'fact' you are going to get married next year, then yes, the dream is addressing that. But if you have no possible way of knowing, then how can the dream know? Knowing you are getting married in a year would be compensating that knowledge in the dream. Predicting what can not be known is not something dreams do as a SOP. It can happen but seldom does. Especially on an issue as you getting married just because you are single.
    But, let's hope it does happen if that is what you really want {and if it is what you want then it is compensating a desire which dreams will do}.

    As for the dream. Let's look at it this way.
    The flowers in your childhood back yard {unconscious stimuli} were real but not with the beautiful growth you are experiencing in life today. There were weeds that needed to be pulled up. In your conscious life, the weeds have to do with your parents strict rules {especially your mother}. You had the potential as a child {pink roses and tulips} but there were the weeds also.

    If it is wheat instead of weeds then there are 'grains' for future growth. The potential is there but like the flowers they need to blossom/grow.

    Interestingly the possible meaning of a red rose is:
    A red rose signifies passion, femininity, love, and romance.

    Google takes the romance aspect it past the compensation possibilities and makes it real. Dreams, other than a person who is very close relationship/loved one, are symbolic. To take a symbol and give it a literal meaning, that doesn't fit. A desire yes. A reality, how can we know?

    Wait a year and when you do get married you can throw egg in my face. Or not.

    Re: Flowers in a wheat field

    Hi Jerry

    I think it is compensating- as I am single at the moment but would like to meet someone special.

    I promise I won't throw eggs, but if I do get married I'll send you an invitation :)

    Thank you

    Re: Flowers in a wheat field

    May,
    I am a three time loser so eggs in my face would be appropriate. Three wonderful women in my life yet I could not stay the course. After all the self analysis I now understand the motivations for running away. I was imitating my father, those early life imprinting. Plus looking for love and acceptance I never received as child. Some people will say that is an excuse but I know better. Too many dreams analyzed from people who have/had the same issues. There are to be a recognition and acknowledgement of the inner issues and then the slow process of working through them. That requires a lot of patience and discipline. Most people don\'t have the discipline.

    The good news for me is I did work through my inner demons. Although it has been 20 years since my last marriage and 15 years since a relationship I am most comfortable being single. I don\'t think I would want to change that. My dream work and websites are my \'mistresses\' and along with my involvement with feral cats {and the 5 I have personally} my work sheet is full. I have realized my creative self, I do my very best to live out of the spiritual self, and understand those two things are key to realizing my true self {the Self}. It is possible to resolve these inner issues and in working with others people\'s dreams I hope to give back what i have learned. This all falls within the perimeters of Jung\'s Individuation Process {a union of opposites} as well as Campbell\'s Hero Journey. These are patterns of actions that must be taken in order to achieve a resolution of the emotional issues that control the waking life. Again it takes discipline, a lot of discipline.

    But once you begin to see the results it really becomes easy to follow. Campbell stated it takes a good ten years. But when these issues to do with the inner journey capture you, you can\'t let go and with discipline you will reach that place where life takes on meaning as well as a sense of security within yourself. This self security replaces what was not given as a child. Those childhood issues are the primary force that unconsciously controls most people\'s life.
