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: two chase dreams

    I would focus on the non-relationship you had with your father {non-relationship in he wasn't a father who provided the needed love and acceptance a child should receive}. That will likely provide answers to your personality trait as described in your statement, Perhaps I have the same tendency to reject all emotional display, seeing it as weakness, and sometimes I feel bad or empty and I don't know why. Early life experiences/impressions, especially with parents, are the key to unconscious motivators for actions and traits in adulthood. Your father didn't know how o give you the attention you desired/required/deserved and you are imitating those actions {I did much the same when I was a young man, not having the father relationship I needed so much to develop a balanced psyche}. It is difficult enough in today's material world to open up to the artistic aspect because our culture's are so focused on the outer things in life. Those things are only temporary. Not until we discover our true selves can we find harmony in life. And that requires the 'inward journey' the psychological investigation to discover the unconscious motivators of personality and actions in adulthood. You will find it hard if not impossible to find your own style because there are unconscious energies that are blocking your 'view'.

    Your statement, I'm a team person and most of all, doing only what I want feels like putting my fantasies out for the people to see... But I want those hidden, I would be ashamed to make the art I really want. As a teenager I tried to do that but it was ridiculed (also by my dad and brother) so maybe that's why I don't trust my own voice , I'm a team person and most of all, doing only what I want feels like putting my fantasies out for the people to see... But I want those hidden, I would be ashamed to make the art I really want. As a teenager I tried to do that but it was ridiculed (also by my dad and brother). Why is it you would be ashamed of making the art you really want? Is it because of the ridicule by family? Fantasies are an expression of what is really inside and if you keep the creative aspects bottle up you are holding in who you really are {of course anything that is harmful to you or others, something due to psychological neurosis, would be different and may require therapy}.

    As for the cow dream. It could be the cows represent nurturing aspects and those aspects are penned up to the point you can move {this would be from a lack of nurturing as a child}. The change into naked women is exposing the unconscious energies that motivate your psyche. These have caused emotional scares. Your true self is chained to this inner aspect. The necklace would symbolize unmet emotional needs {the neck connects the body and mind, unconscious and conscious self}. Your uncle's girlfriend would likely have something in common with you, something you share with her that relates {uncle} to your psychology. She has similar chains in her closet {which could be a statement of cat pertaining to her life}. Her response about the sharp blades is your own attitude {why you want to keep certain aspects hidden?} due to the emotional blades you possess. The woman you do not like is you, the hidden aspects you can not/will not let out. The two sides are the opposites of who you are on the outside {not letting your true self out} and who you really are on the inside. The gossip represents you are doing something that will hinder your progress in being your true self.

    You may be able see the pattern here if you will think of how your early life lacked the sufficient nourishment of love, affection and attention in early life. These negative imprinting become motivators for personality and conscious actions later in life. Again, I had very similar issues in my life and it was only when I discovered what they were {a father abandoned my mother and 4 kids} and once I discovered those unconscious forces and began to neutralize them I no longer was held captive by them. What you don't want to do is repress the energies because they will no only continue to unconsciously control your life the energies could manifest themselves into something even worse {neurosis or even psychosis}.

    If you want to post the about the empty train do so. It may reveal in more detail the unconscious energies in your life. Dreams play out in a series, a process that takes place when working with your psychology. Each dream can offer something new and when it comes together your dreams will begin to be positive because your life is once again on track to wholeness {nature's intent to begin with}.
