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: Red Powder?

    My sense of the dream it is addressing issues related to current life stresses {running late, things going smoothly, frustrations} but may also be focusing on deeper emotional issues as well {as with all dreams there is at least two meanings/applications}. The later would be related to the image of the older woman which could be your mother in one sense and possibly you s an older person in another {which again as with every dream each image having at least two meanings/applications}. The stresses in your life today may be related to personality traits, your personal growth as a child {basil, tomatoes, cheese representing emotional nourishment and the 'red powder' being stronger emotional energies}. What needs to be 'noticed', and this would be a primary focus of the dream, would be how you handle stresses in life due to issues of personal growth earlier in life {inherent tendencies or/and early life experiences that govern who you are today}. The foreign language is the need to better understand something that is not consciously understood. The guide would be the older woman and once you lean what governs your life as an adult {early life experiences/issues} you will know better who you are. Once you have discovered these deep psyche influences and work to resolve any issues the negative energies will disappear and you can be your true self. A lack of understanding may represent masculine traits {he being sick}. That may be pointing to negative masculine traits you possess which, when exhibited, produces negative actions on your part {which too would be a result of early life foundations /floor}.

    One way to look at your dream is to take all the people as if they were you or aspects of who you are. Wit the 'she watching her' both she and her would be you, with one being an unconscious aspect watching the conscious self with a desire to make unconscious contents conscious {nodded for me to join her}. The 'he'in pain would be masculine aspects {as mentioned}. Overall I believe the dream is addressing personality traits/issues that have to do with how you manage your life in the present day. These issues need to be made known and understood, correcting what is out of balance. It is then you will be able to be calm and relaxed, having resolved the issues that cause you respond to respond with negative actions in everyday life.
