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: Fire dream

    Thank U so much again for your time. U r so right in your interpretations & observations. I do have trust issues. I just recently figured out that it stems from my childhood. I was molested as a child but I pushed this out of my mind. I never think about this until I prayed & asked God to help me & he begin to replay my life back to me starting w/ my childhood. I never thought this had a real effect on me b/c I chose not to tell anyone & I just acted like it never happened so to me it wasn't real. When God brought this back to me as something that I needed to talk about I did w/ my parents. I have really good parents. They r very religious people. I have a wonderful dad also. He has always been there. I never felt comfortable enough to tell my parents. I didn't want my dad to b upset & my mom to b furious. I was also ashamed. This hurt me badly when I was 5 or 6. I remember my mother painting my finger nails pink & red after this happened it it would make me physically sick to my stomach but I felt that I couldn't tell her what was wrong so I pretty much suffered in silence & I chose to forget about it.

    Later in life I always chose the bad boy type. I don't know y. I guess b/c I've lived a sheltered life. My parents only let us go to family members homes. I can count on one hand how many sleep overs or parties I got to go to. So the guy I chose was very different from me. In fact he was horrible a flat out criminal (I learned this after I was I when so deep w/ him.) he was very abusive to me in every way. He cheated all of the time. He hit me all the time. I couldn't get away from him. I also lost a baby in this relationship. i had a really hard time. I prayed i was so tired & so scared so I prayed to God & the next day He got picked up & put in jail & from there he went to prison. God spared my life.

    After that i had another boyfriend that was abusive but the first time he hit me i never saw him again. i stayed away b/c i knew from my first experience he would not change & it helped that we lived in 2 different cities. my next real serious boyfriend which i planned to marry i let him in my world my family loved him my church family loved him my friends loved him & my grandparents but he cheated on me & had a child behind my back. i didn't find out until a week before this child was born & it was the girl herself that told me. she called my job & did this in the most hurtful nasty way possible.i had no idea he was cheating I didn't know anything I felt like a total fool. I trusted him & he just stumped all over me. There are many more stories but my experiences have helped to shape my impressions & views on men. When I choose men I don't know how I end up w/ abusers or cheaters or just people that are not loyal. I have a hard time controlling my thoughts & emotions. I feel confused I don't know what's right in relationships or what's wrong. I am having a hard time understanding y my way of thinking is wrong it helps protect me I feel but then it hurts the person I'm w/ if what I am accusing them of isn't true. I don't want to hurt anyone I just want to love & be loved. I do not trust myself in choosing a man I have always made the wrong choice that is y I pray & ask God for help & guidance.

    I am dating a guy that is so sweet however I also feel other ways about him. I have several thoughts about him b/c of the way he does things. He is a people person he does a lot of things in the public view. He is very outgoing. sometimes I feel like he doesn't understand me & I feel like when I ask him not to do certain things he ignores me. He continues to do these things that drive me. He says that he is not flirting w/ women but i don't believe him b/c of what i see. (Right now we r just dating we r not in a committed relationship). This type of relationship is hard for me to deal w/. I pray all the time but I know it's like u said I need to take action myself as well to help myself also. I do need therapy & I hope that I can afford to do this soon. I appreciate your help so much Jerry.

    Re: Fire dream

    As long as you 'hide' these experiences and emotions and not confront them they will continue to control your life. The abuse is something that has taken control over you although you consciously push the experiences deeper from thinking about it. The pattern I talked about in choices of relationship is a part of the control. The guy you are dating now may or may not be the right guy for you. But as long as your senses are corrupted by unconscious stimuli you will not be able to tell right from wrong. He may the right person and just happens to have a strong introverted personality. By having these trust issues your 'intuitive' senses, those that naturally let you know true and false, is out of balance. That important psyche quality needs to function properly or you will remain at the mercy of the unconscious energies you have lived with. I strongly suggest therapy with a trained clinician or psychologist. No matter how great your belief in God is it is up to you to take control and do the deeds necessary to heal.

    Please seek help. Life can be hell on earth if you continue to let these emotional conflicts ruin any chance of having a loving relationship with the right man.
