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.

    snakes

    Last night I had a disturbing dream. The only part I remember is seeing a two-headed snake on a platform. The snake moved towards me and the two heads were taking turns hitting me on the back of my neck. They were hitting the back of my neck because I was kneeling down, sheilding myself from them. I was also begging for them to stop and get away from me. What does this mean?

    Re: snakes

    Kristy,
    A two headed snake may symbolize two choices in life that are being presented to you. The neck and the platform symbols may be the inability to voice which is the one you should choose. A snake bite may suggest self-sabotage, or in other words, the choicse you have to make are available but you can not make up your mind.

    A snake also symbolizes rejuvination, new birth. Perhaps these choices have to do with something that will bring new opportunities to your life. Look and detremine what choices you have been confronted with as of late. Have you been indecisive abouth them? Perhaps it is time to make a choice.

    Re: snakes

    Hi Kristy,

    In this dream, I believe that the two-headed snake symbolizes kundalini. Although not too well known in the West, more and more people are learning about kundalini and are having kundalini related experiences. Kundalini is sometimes called Serpent Power and can be envisioned as a source of energy that is coiled like a snake at the base of the spine. When awakened, this energy will (ideally) travel up the central channel of the spine. This central channel is called the Sushumna nadi. Although there are thousands of these channels or nadis throughout the body, the three at the spine are usually considered the major ones. In addition to the Sushumna nadi, there are the Ida and the Pingala nadis on the left and the right side of the Sushumna nadi, respectively.

    As the kundalini energy travels up the spine, it rises up through the seven primary chakras along the spine. A chakra is an energy center. It is sometimes described as a vortex of light or a wheel of light.

    Now that you are thoroughly confused, what does all of this have to do with your dream? When the two-headed snake bites at the back of your neck, it is symbolically trying to clear blockage or activate the 5th chakra, which is at the throat. It is interesting that the snake is biting the back of your neck. Most of the chakras (2nd through the 6th) have both front and rear openings. I’ve read somewhere that more power or energy is available at the rear openings of these chakras.

    As you might have figured, the throat chakra is associated with such activities as talking and singing, and with illnesses such as a sore throat. The throat chakra is also associated with the color blue.

    As the blockages are cleared, you may begin to feel a “fullness” or a “hot spot” in the neck region – especially at the back of the neck.

    Re: snakes

    To add to the subject of the Kundalini. Joseph Campbell gives a wonderful yet understandable interpretation of the Kundalini in his book Transformations of Myth Through Time. This is a book, a collection of 13 lectures, that is not as well known as many of Campbell's other works. It provides us with insights to the origins of myths and how we can reconcile the mysteries of life.
    I recommend it to all who are interested in learning more about the origins of the psyche.

    Re: snakes

    Thanks Gerard,
    My understanding is that Carl Jung had a long time interest in kundalini and such; but, until now, I was not aware that Joseph Campbell had written anything on the subject.

    Re: snakes

    I guess I'm the only one who finds this dream sexual in nature..primal and duplicitous.
    I would be interested in what the feeling tone was upon awakening from this dream. Could you share that, please?
