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: 3 consecutive night terrors, each worse.

    MT Wolf,
    Please do form a plan and follow through with it. Life is short and you are the age I was when I decided enough of the stress and pressures and began a regimentation of physical fitness that has allowed me to be in a position few of my peers enjoy. When I discovered Jungian psyche 10 years later I was able to work on the mental part, especially the childhood issues that motivated me to take so many wrong directions when I was a younger man. I am now 64, retired and work with dreams every day {as well as maintain a moderate physical fitness routine to keep healthy}. I do not feel, act or even look my age because of the 30 years of physical fitness.

    As for the drug prescriptions. I am of the opinion, and there is research that supports my position, that physical activity can reduce the need for many type drugs. As I stated in my analyzation stress will do more harm to the body that most anything else. You can treat these aliments with drugs {some people need them no matter what} but a moderate physical fitness routine can reduce and in many instances eliminate the need for them. Consider this as you look to change your profession.

    The change of jobs. Find one that has less stress and develop a plan to further that cause. Another part of the process {the psychology} is to find that thing in life you love doing and if in any way possible make that your career. If not a career then give it an allotted time every day. It usually involves creativity, the hidden talent we all possess, that thing that satisfies the soul. I just happened upon Jungian psyche by chance when I was 42 and went from a sports crazed couch potato to building websites and interpreting dreams. I had this gift and one hour of life changed everything {watching the first episode of The Power of Myth. It was a synchronistic event that changed my life. We have two opportunities to do this, one when we are young {teens and early twenties} and again at mid-life. Your present mental condition may be that wake up call to 'follow your bliss'. I did and life opened up and has continued to do so ever since. It is a formula that fits with the laws of nature {the hero journey}. To quote my spiritual mentor:

    “Follow your bliss.

    If you do follow your bliss,

    you put yourself on a kind of track

    that has been there all the while waiting for you,

    and the life you ought to be living

    is the one you are living.

    When you can see that,

    you begin to meet people

    who are in the field of your bliss,

    and they open the doors to you.

    I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid,

    and doors will open

    where you didn't know they were going to be.

    If you follow your bliss,

    doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.”

    A few who have followed their bliss {and were students of Campbell}
    George Lucas, Linda Ronstadt, Jerry Garcia

    As for your dreams. It aptly defines your condition. Dreams reflect the true self. There is no ego bias, it reflects the true self and the condition of the dreamer's. There was no doubt in my mind as I analyzed them the condition of your life. Often it takes some deep analyzing to discover the message of a dream but yours came across very clearly. Your response confirmed what I saw. Now that you have confirmed what you mostly already knew you must make changes or the dreams will continue to be dark and disturbing. You have the benefit of having a father who is in the field of psychology. He knows what the mind can do when it is over loaded. Find a psychologist {Preferably a Jungian psychologist who works with dreams} and start a new life going in the right direction. If you continue the path yo are one you will self destruct. Think of those who love you and depend on you if for no other reasons than to do so. The first Buddhist saying is 'life is full of sorrow'. And it is no matter what. But to what degree one will suffer depends on the individual. With the right tools anyone can make a better life. It is all psychological and when you begin to work to improve your psychology you put yourself on the right path to wholeness, balance and a better life.

    Good luck in your journey. If you have other dreams you need help with the Dream Forum is always open.
