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: Random! shopping, toad/ bear and bee stings

    This dream seems to be getting to the underlying issues that may be the cause of emotional issues in your life. You mentioned you have had counseling for childhood issues and this may be picking up on that. The underlying issues may be the motivators I saw in your previous posted dreams. Here is my interpretation.

    You are seeking aid/relief from past experiences that may have also involved your sister, experiences that you wish to or have pushed into your unconscious {your sister may symbolize your emotional self and/or your real sister}. The toad would represent emotions that have been suppressed but unconsciously 'follow' you. The toad size bear could represent unrecognized/unconscious aspects to do with your mother or, if not your mother would represent powerful emotions that could grown larger. These are experiences you attempt to get past because of the emotional 'sting'. Unconsciously they are even stronger causing stings in every aspect of your life. These unconscious emotions need to be exposed {naked}. They may involve your actual private parts {sexual experiences}. If not that the private parts would point to experiences you wish to keep private and/or experiences that have been pushed into the unconscious so they are kept private from conscious awareness {it could be both sexual experiences as well as 'private' experiences}. The ***** would be draining the emotional experiences so they can be recognized and reconciled.

    What childhood issues do you recall that would cause emotional conflicts? Were there sexual experiences that could be an issue? You stated that the counseling sessions were not right for you and you are going to health retreat center. What was it about the session that didn't fit? And what type retreat are you planning on attending? Is it a therapeutic event with trained personnel who can help with psychological issues?
