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: Sex and Church

    Bob,
    I apologize for not getting to your dream post sooner. Very busy time, a lot going on and things to be done.

    Have you given thought to or even taken actions that are opposite your normal religious practices. Perhaps questioning your current religious affiliation and thinking about other spiritual possibilities? Thoughts or actions that your current religion would frown upon? Here are my thoughts to the possibilities to the meaning of the images in your dream.

    Sex is often symbolic of uniting aspects of the psyche that are out of balance. Having sex with your wife may represent bringing into balance the feminine aspects and possibly spiritual aspects {spirituality is a feminine aspect}. Sex on the floor could represent basic foundations you were brought up with {religious} as well as the spiritual foundations that are more aligned with natural spiritual aspects {psychologically an inward journey and not an outward religious doctrine}. This could be making a statement about a spiritual search that would be more fulfilling.

    The cameras may point to your church 'watching' you and a fear of discovery of any thoughts or actions contrary to you religious doctrine {if not an actual experience of confrontation with your current religion or church}. Or it could represent inner anxieties associated with spiritual matters contrary to church doctrine. The cameras could also represent inner aspects and the church would be you {an inner view of your true self}.

    The parish priest could involve an actual waking life experience or/and he could represent you as your own spiritual mentor {to fit with thoughts or actions of investigating other spiritual possibilities}. His finding out may represent a discovery beyond what your church teaches {again to do with other spiritual possibilities}. The younger priest could represent fears of these 'newer' spiritual possibilities replacing your current religion, the other possibilities taking its place {the fears would be from the indoctrination that has been imprinted by on your psyche by your church}.

    The lawyer may represent a need for instructions and spiritual direction. Again he would be you in the manner he knows current 'canon' law that conflicts with new spiritual possibilities.

    Jerry, Very accurate and well done thank you. I have a business deal that might involve litigation and really question that maybe I should just roll with it and accept the loss rather then seek remedy. Bob
