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: My mom


    Thank you for your response. The only thing I can think of regarding my father related to my mother that I just learned is that he felt that it was his full responsibility to keep her alive and he blames himself for her death.

    I fully agree that the second paragraph depicts my mom being a provider of nourishment (breasts), but in a position of weakness, especially since she was weak for the past few months, and even while in the hospital she provided for me the best that she could.

    The reason why felt I wasn't supposed to be there was because since my mom was standing up and didn't notice that I was in the doorway, she may have been getting ready to change her clothing. As for "her standing up like that", I don't see how this can be related to my father feeling that it was his full responsibility to keep her alive and blaming himself for her death. At this point in time I can't think of anything else that I learned about him recently in regards to my mom.

    Regarding the last paragraph, what is confusing/shocking emotionally is that my mom has always been able to bounce back from things no matter how physically or mentally taxing it was on her, and I had a lot of faith that she would do it again. When I said that I had to force myself to wake up, I didn't mean that I was trying to wake up and was having a difficult time doing it- I meant that I forced myself to wake up because I realized that my mom, who was standing up in front of me, was dead. I didn't understand how that was possible, and as far as I previously knew that wasn't possible. It wasn't as if I thought she had died and it turned out I was mistaken- I knew she had died and yet she was standing right in front me.

    Re: My mom

    I do believe your learning about how your father felt is what the dream is primarily focused. The first part of a dream sets the stage for what the dream message is about. What may not have been addressed is your emotions concerning some part of the relationship, something 'unusual' that is not or was not normal. These are your emotions {your dreams are about you} so the response would be yours. Examine the part of the dream where it states, "Wait a minute- she usually hasn't been standing up like that!". Is there something that would fit with this action that affects you emotionally? The last paragraph should also be considered with the above statement. See if this fits somewhere.

    A statement about dream analysis/interpretation. Anyone who has an ability to 'read' dreams can at best read the periphery of a dream and not be exact to what the message is. The dreamer will need to see where the analysis fits. Normally a good 'read' will prompt the dreamer to see associations and understand where the interpretation does fit. Few dreams provide an exact depiction of what the conscious or emotional experience is. All dreams are about the dreamer's emotions and everything within a dream is related to those emotions {issues that cause an emotional conflict}.
