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: crumbling teeth, recurring most of my life

    Lara,
    My sense is you are in the process of conversing with your wise masculine self {perhaps you have a real life teacher or mentor who fits this role also} but you are being distracted by an inability to resolve issues of who you really are {fool's gold}. Are you in a period of transformation, going through important changes in your life? Are you having trouble with this process and not sure why you are having such difficulties {WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME? DO YOU KNOW WHY??}? Yo may possess strong intuitive abilities that are useful when dealing with the public but this inner issue is causing you distress. You unconsciously know the answer {as we all do since the unconscious holds the truth about our true self} but are captive {mesmerized} to the inner agony that is at the root of your distress and will be until your discover the true self. The crumbling teeth may symbolize sense of confidence and competence in the waking world. This would be, in your case, due to unconscious energies that are fully understood and need outward vocalization/expression.

    Are you going through changes at the present time in your life and having a hard time adjusting? If so it may be due to personal traits that are not fully understood {unconscious motivators}. You possess an inner wisdom but lack the ability to let this important aspect express itself outwardly. Do you feel you have problems expressing yourself?

    If my sense is correct this dream will be a prelude to other dreams that will point to the underlying issues. Although you have had these dreams for some time the fact you are now trying to understand their message will generate future dreams to continue in helping you to realize what the inner issues are. The conflicts within are reflected outwardly and the later can not find resolution until the inner conflicts are resolved. An inability to express yourself outwardly has inner roots {psychological}. Those need to be discovered.

    Let me know your thoughts and perhaps we can learn more about these dreams.

    Jerry

    Re: crumbling teeth, recurring most of my life

    Jerry,

    Firstly, I want to thank you for your thorough analysis with what little you had. I am going through a major adjustment period and am cut off from traditional support systems such as being close to home, family and friends. Your explanation will help me further ponder these issues rather than grapple with them inside the darkness in my own head. Interestingly enough, concurrent to having this dream I am reading a book by a Jungian psychoanalyst Dr. Clarrisa Pinkola Estes. Maybe all this reading has incited my unconscious to talk to me again through this dream. I hope your prediction of this dream being a prelude to others is true as I would like to undertand these unconscious motivators more deeply and thus myself.

    I am often told that my "femininity", whatever that means, is quite strong as in perceptiveness and intuition. I realize that my masculine energies maybe trapped. I dont have trouble expressing myself but my vocalizations are often reactionary not proactive expressionism so to speak. I find myself letting things happen to me and just reacting to them... "going along for the ride". On the other hand, I am deeply contemplative person and try to assess who I am always, incessantly with evry step of my life. Its quite exhausting and I want to behold my truth sooner than later, to face it, acknowledge it, so I may be more effective in this world.

    Can I accelerate this discovery journey through the machinations of my dreams somehow? I know we cannot force dreams....

    Thank you very much again.

    Re: crumbling teeth, recurring most of my life

    Lara,
    Your response does support much of what I saw in the dream. It is next to impossible to get everything right with what little knowledge I have {just think what a good dream interpreter can do when they have all the facts}. You are wise to consult a \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'Jungian\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' author to learn more about your inner life. Especially a female Jungian psychologist. Let me recommend another who can be most helpful with women\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s issues. Marion Woodman has been a sage for me for many years. Take a look at the pages I have created that lists the many works she has given us as well as several videos with her {listed at end of my comments}. Here is a quote from Marion that gives insights to her magnificent mind:


    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Psychological work is soul work.... By soul, I mean the eternal part of us that lives in this body for a few years, the timeless part of ourselves that wants to create timeless objects like art, painting and architecture. Whenever the ego surrenders to the archetypal images of the unconscious, time meets the timeless. Insofar as those moments are conscious, they are psychological, they belong to the soul.... For me, soul-making is allowing the eternal essence to enter and experience the outer world through all the orifices of the body ... so that the soul grows during its time on Earth. It grows like an embryo in the womb. Soul-making is constantly confronting the paradox that an eternal being is dwelling in a temporal body. That\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s why it suffers, and learns by heart.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"

    As for your question, \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Can I accelerate this discovery journey through the machinations of my dreams somehow? I know we cannot force dreams?\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"
    You can, by analyzing your dreams along with the self therapy that is needed to resolve the inner emotional conflicts. Dreams will address what the issues are {using symbolic language} and offer some insights to their resolution. But the leg work will left to a conscious attempt to determine what the issues are and what to do to resolve those issues. It is the understanding of the issues and how they came about that most people can not resolve. Most begin in earliest childhood where experiences/influences of most importance to a developing brain are imprinted. Dreams will reveal what these issues are {I see these issues probably more than anything else in my analysis}. We now know that an infant has their greatest capabilities of learning. From Jung\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s work we also know the human psyche is born with \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'archetypal\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' energies that are very relevant to all stages of life {much a like animals have intuitive knowledge that guide them}. Understanding these energies are also important. Not only do they help with resolution to personal emotional issues, by knowing of them you put yourself on a higher plane of \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'knowing\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' {like those in Gnosticism, Self Knowledge}.

    To achieve these I do recommend reading Jungian concepts and those who teach them. Estes does a great job as does Woodman. This is all about personal and spiritual growth. Learning about the psychology of personal life will help resolve those issues. Learning about the greater 'Self Knowledge' will hep you discover meaning in life, how to tap into the creative and spiritual aspects. It is a journey inward for sure. And out of that comes a knowledge that, when realized and integrated, will allow you to pass on what you have learned so others can discover wholeness and harmony in life. That is the ultimate goal of the dream. Nature intended us to be
    'whole' and dreams are nature's tool to achieve that. Just as is the immune system is to the body {a healing mechanism}, so too is the dream to the psyche.

    Jerry,

    Thank you, thank you from the depths of my heart. I have tried to contact Estes but she's a busy lady :) I was so touched by the profound insights in her book that I often had to put the book down and gasp for air. After taking a deep breath, the concepts sunk in deeper and I proceeded. I needed further relegation of these concepts and in a desperate attempt I tried to contact her. My dream led me to you, and your feedback is exactly what I needed to hear. I look into Woodmans work and am so grateful for the links. You are quite talented with this. I thank you on behalf of all who partake in these forums for your time and authenticity. I will try to do my personal work and am sure now that the dreams will continue. I will share my progress with you :)

    Re: crumbling teeth, recurring most of my life

    Lara,
    Please continue to look into Jungian psyche in your quest for personal growth. Few are capable of grasping the need to understand the unconscious forces that control the conscious life. These Jungian teachers offer insights that can release the mind from captivity to the unconscious motivators. I look forward to hearing from you in your progression. I believe you will be amazed at what the dreams have to offer, the imagery and the symbolic metaphors they represent.

    One more suggestion. To get a complete of an understanding the archetypes and the unconscious energies they hold I suggest you do some reading on mythology. For that I direct your attention to Joseph Campbell. It was Campbell's The Power of Myth that changed my life some 22 years ago and introduced me to Jungian psyche. It has been a long journey but the patterns of the hero journey have been in constants evidence the whole time. It is amazing how these concepts have fit in my journey. They fit with anyone who dares travel the spiritual path to psychological wholeness. This is because they are an instrument of nature's divine instructions. It is a great advantage to have nature in your corner. I can attest to this from personal experience.

    I look forward to your progress updates.

    Jerry
