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: Blood like soup (long)

    Jerry,
    I just thought about that a bit harder, and I know my emotional problems aren't my fault. But I think I'm subconsciously scared my parents would blame me if they knew the extent of them. I'm scared to talk about my dreams or my problems with them because I'm scared they'll be mad at me for having emotional problems or something. It's stupid. But it's real and I don't know how to show them how serious it is.

    Again, thank you for taking your time to do this.

    Re: Blood like soup (long)

    Melony,
    There it is. Your fear about your parents blaming you.This is as much about your parents as it is you. You are not to blame, they are. For not providing the support you need to be able to talk with them about your problems. That is the cutting blade in your dream. Communication of what is on the inside {of you} is most important especially in the formative years of life. If you can not talk with parents who do you talk to? They are the ones who have constructed the environment in which you live.

    What to do is the next question. Counseling by a trained therapist will help if it is a possibility. Is there a counselor at school who would fit that role? If you can sit down and discuss it with him/her and then after a relationship is established with the counselor {where you trust that person} then bring your parents in and have a group discussion. Your fear of going straight to your parents probably won't work since it is a fear on your part and a failure on theirs. A mediator may be what is needed to bring your parents to an understanding of what you need.

    As for the other dream {submitted under the name Marie}. It will likely make more sense now I know more about you and the problems you have with your parents. It is most difficult o analyze and interpret a young person's dreams because there is so much influence of current issues and the dream lacks specifics on the real emotional problems {by specifics I mean images that define what the issues may be}. Without knowing personal information these type dreams could be about most anything in a teen's life. The eventual message always has meaning but getting to that message when everyone in the dream is generic leaves little chance of pin pointing a specific issue. The second dream you posted had recognizable images and actions that pointed specifically in a particular direction. I was able to read those 'symbols' and provide enough about the images so you could recognize where they fit in your life. That is what I do when I analyze dreams. Provide clues to what the images might mean and then the dreamer will put the pieces together. You did just that with my analyze of the second dream.

    If your depression is not related to traumatic experiences in life then the problem may be neurological, an imbalance of the chemical brain that causes disorders of nerves and the nervous system. This is a common problem with a great many people. Then when you add the problems you have with your parents {if that is not a part of the neurological aspects} then you add another layer of an imbalanced condition on top of another. Of course the neurology could be related to early life experiences/influences due to the lack of proper parenting. Resolving the parent issue may help resolve any neurological problems {and eliminate or reduce the need for medications}. Again, if possible seek out a therapist. If one is not available ask someone in authority at school who you trust for advice where to look for a therapist. Your problems can be resolved, it is a matter of finding the right people to assist you. You will need to take your 'masculine' self and take the initiative in finding those persons. There is help available somewhere.

    Re: Blood like soup (long)

    Jerry,
    Thank you so much for analyzing these dreams for me. You don't know me or anything, I'm just some random kid. But it really means a lot.

    What you've said makes a lot of sense to me and I am currently still waiting for my mother to tell me wether I'll be seeing a therapist or not. It's not just communicating with my parents that I'm bad at, my people skills generally suck. I don't know if I'd even be able to speak to a therapist about me without breaking down and crying, but I guess I'll just have to wait to find out.

    I would also like to thank you for interpreting my friend Erica's dream. We saw your feral cat program, and it really spoke to us. We would both love to donate, except we're both broke.

    Thank you again for taking your time to do this.

    Melony,
    Don't worry about contributing. That is for those who have a little extra to share. AS for the therapist I think it is important. Let your mother know you wish to see one. It could be a life changing difference.
