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: A conscious request in a dream

    Jamel,
    am faded.
    My sense about your dream is it is focused on the inner journey you need to take to find that place of serenity you seek. The outer world is full of chaos that offers few benefits when it comes to the true self {the outer world is controlled by ego, social duty and material worth}. Only by going inward {walking into the house} and submitting to the greater feminine power {Jesus lived from the feminine as did the Buddha} can you find that place you seek. In the social world witches are taboo but in the inner world it represents an acceptance of the greater power within {forging religion and blazing your own path}. It is the emotional self that holds us back {no emotion, just an answer} and we must 'tunnel' inward {tunnels are symbolic of the womb} to reach the true self/heart. The real identification is the inner self {dimple} and the ego must be impressed by that other self and submit to it. But because the ego does not wish to relinquish control the mantra to go inward must be repeated until you naturally live from the inner world and not the ego world.

    My take is you are grappling with these issues of the true self and your place in it {you are that beginning stage of the midlife phase when these things naturally occur}. You have rejected the controlling world of religion {rightfully so} but because of the indoctrination you are left with many questions as what path to take. Joseph Campbell tells us we must be the hero/heroine in our own lives and to discover the true nature of our being we must go inward {psychological}. Objectivity must overrule the emotions. But there also must be an acceptance of the metaphysical aspects {beyond physical but not miraculous}, those inherent aspects within nature that point to understanding of meaning. As Campbell stated, there is no meaning, we are human animals and we must find our own meaning. And that is found within and flows from the center to the outer world {when realized and accepted}.

    Re: A conscious request in a dream

    Jerry,

    Thanks a lot for your time and interpretation. I have begun to dig into Campbell. A lot of what you wrote really resonated with me. I am looking for God whatever it is and I am searching for meaning. There is a desperation in me longing for that connection. I am looking forward to the next leg of my journey.
