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.

    scorpion

    In my dream I'm sitting at my kitchen table, and a large black scorpion crawls up my leg and onto the table. I makes a hissing sound, but never actually tries to sting me. I manage to knock it to the floor. I try to kill it by stepping on it, but it won't squish. Then I try to spray it with poison, but it doesn't die. It never tries to sting me, but it follows me everywhere I go. It acted like it was trying to engage in something....like if it could talk it had something to say. This dream has had such a profound affect on me, that this is the first time I've been compelled to research a meaning.

    Re: scorpion

    Krista,
    What is it in your life that you are trying to 'squish' when in fact you need to engage it, face up to it? It is probably something that is a constant thing in your life, something that follows you around no matter how much you try not to think or act on it. It could be something that you have tried to put out of your mind, something that would affect the foundations of who you are {knock it to the floor}. If you will engage it, have a dialog with this part of yourself, most likley you will be able to work through it. Keeping it bottled up will only make it worse. It could be something that could inflict physical or emotional pain on you. But not confronting it will let it grow even larger.

    Re: scorpion

    Thank you Gerard for your input. Now I'll shed some light on my personal life and maybe you can help me pin point a source of my trouble. In July of 2004 my husband of thirteen years commited suicide by hanging himself in the backyard. Our relationship was dreadful, he was abusive and unfaithful. I have since found man that I believe is my real soul mate, and we love each other dearly. My problem is that I feel unworthy and even guilty of recieving his love. I also have a lot of family on both sides all up in my business. There are people constantly talking and hating on me. I truely believe that this dream was a warning. I feel like I need to watch my back. Is this something that you might agree with?

    Re: scorpion

    Krista,
    You indeed have much to squish in your life. But I believe the scorpion in your dream is as much about your inner self as it is an adjective for those who 'hate' you. The feelings of inadequacies are something that you must confront or it may have a negative affect in your new relationship. You need to engage that aspect, it is a part of your foundations, who you are. That may require some professional help.

    As for those people who constantly are talking and hating on you. Perhaps you either need to engage them with force and confidence, or completely disengage them. For an alcoholic it is most important to stay away from alcohol. If you surround yourself with negative people you too will remain negative. You have a new love, perhaps it is best to start an entirely new life.
