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.

    handicapped lady

    Dear Gerard,

    I hope you are very well.

    In my dream a friend I knew a few years back was visiting me. (her name is Anne and ‘anne’ means mother in my language). She is an aristocrat so I was proud that she was coming to stay at my house. As I was showing her around my house (which had a cold, gray and old feeling) she was calm, polite and friendly but I could tell she was not herself because she was hiding something. Then I asked her about her husband and she told me that she had a divorce and I understood this was the secret. Then I told her that I thought this was actually good for her because I knew they werent compatible, that they got married because it was appropriate for their families and that I knew she fancied other men while she was engaged and any of these guys would have made her happier.

    Then I ask her about her child as I had heard that she had a baby. When she understands that I know that she has a child she stops hiding this as well and says “actually I came here my child but she has problems”. Then I see the child – a handicapped girl in her twenties who is in a wheelchair. I look at the child and realize she looks a lot like me, only she is younger than me and has short brown hair (I have long blond hair). I look at this woman/child in the eyes and ask her how she is (and think that she looks like a really nice and warm person), and child/woman smiles and says “I am fine thank you” but then gets emotional and starts crying and turns away and then my friend says ‘she is really touched you asked her how she is because nobody ever does’

    And then I woke up feeling sad.. Thank you very much for your interpretation of this dream..

    Re: handicapped lady

    I am going to read the dream in a way that I see it, using you as the focus of the dream. Then I will let you fill in the rest. I can see the perimeters but the indepth issues can only be understood by you.

    An old positive aspect that has to do wisdom. You were/are feeling low, perhaps depressed. There was/is something that you were/are hiding within. You had/have unconsciously separated yourself from a masculine aspect. This masculine aspect wasn't a fit with who you were/are.

    Out of this came a new aspect. But there were/are problems with this aspect also, something that perhaps you did/do not want to admit to. This aspect crippled some part of your feminine self. This was a past experience when you were younger. You are getting to know this aspect again. You pretend everything is fine but inside you are injured. Getting to know this part of you again will be helpful, perhaps healing.

    Let me know your thoughts to the interpretation. I have not gone back to review your other dream because I didn't want to let it influence my intuitive Self when looking at the new dream.

    Re: handicapped lady

    Hello Gerard

    Thank you for the interpretation which I think is spot on again, I know this dream has to do with my feminine self, body image and my fear of forming new intimate relationships etc. because this is what I am finally working on after years of escaping to the mind, (getting too intellectual, too career orientated etc). But I am still confused about the dream and also from bits of your interpretation. Which part/aspect do you suggest I ‘get to know again’, the feminine or the masculine? And can you please explain what you mean by your first sentence about wisdom? And do you think is it OK to assume that the ‘me’ in the dream is really ‘me’- the me who does the day to day living, and the two other women (the crippled lady who looks a lot like me- and the friend, Anne, who probably represents ‘conformity’ to me) are also aspects of me and I should pay attention to how they manifest themselves in the dream? I am still confused about how my ‘Anne aspect’ and the ‘crippled girl aspect’ relate to each other and feel that this is somehow really important..

    (I am happy you didnt go back to the old dream as well, as I feel my reality is changing fast so thank you)

    Re: handicapped lady

    The first thing that needs to be realized are those things that may be hidden, repressed or just ignored about yourself. What emotional issues have been in your life recently? THis would be part of the feminine aspect that is seeking to be acknowledged. Something that has not let you 'be yourself' {as stated in your dream}. Also look at new/recent events/experiences that are causing you problems. These two things, the hidden aspects and the new/recent events, are probably related.

    Dreams are compensating your waking life, providing information about your life that you may some conflict over {as well as positive aspects}. Your dream seems to be addressing some emotional issues {gets emotional and starts crying}. Also the waking feelings you had with the dream {And then I woke up feeling sad} punctuates these emotions. So compare the dream to your waking life and determine where it fits. The significant phase of life that you are in {as you stated in your dream post 'storm and flood'} may have something to do with these emotions.

    Let me know your thoughts and if you will more about 'the significant phase of life' you are in and perhaps we can match these dreams to your life.
