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.

    female horse

    hi Gerard
    i know on many occasions you have stressed the importance of allowing the female side of our (male) nature a more dominant role.
    this dream of mine reflects this truth,
    i am invited by some native americans (cheyenne)to ride with them.
    they ride on ahead,while i try to get to grips with my horse,(white mare)
    it's head is bent back,and i realise i have hold of the reins to tightly and i need to sit back,relax,
    someone shouts,quit fighting your horse,
    i realised that the horse knew where to go and that all i had to do was hold on and let it take me there,i remember thanking the horse for teaching me this,with a pat.
    we galloped through some trees and bushes,which was a bit uncomfortable,but on clearing them,we came to the brow of a hill,

    before me lay a panoramic scene of such beauty,rolling grass plains as far as the eye could see,
    i knew then why the native americans had such reverance for life.

    if handing over the reins to the feminine,leads to this discovery,then the journey is well worth the effort and struggle.
    regards steve.

    Re: female horse

    Steve,
    I believe when we accept the feminine as equal, and let her lead instead of the masculine, the natural evolution and result would be what we see in Jesus, or Siddhartha Buddha.

    Jesus said, "Whoever drinks from my mouth will become like me; I myself shall become that person, and the hidden things will be revealed to him." parable 108 the Gospel of Thomas, the Gnostic Gospels.

    Ghandi is a perfect example of a true disciple of the spiritual Self. It is not that we should become historial as they have but to be historial in our own lives by being that Christ-like person. And when we achieve that, nature provides the boons for the hero/heroine. By living authentic lives we have the power to control our life. Your dream is about that power. In your dream that power is the horse.
    Native Americans, very spiritual, conscious of nature, the original American, the original Self. You probably have a positive bias toward 'cheyenne'.

    The horse, the stallion, powerful and knows how to lead. Integrated with the feminine this symbol will lead you through life, wisely, honestly, spiritually.

    And the stallation probably applies some where in your waking life. Soul Future's list of possibilities have a lot of merit. How many apply to you?


    Your 'Individuation' is being played out in your dreams. Your myth is also on show. You know you will have to live your life, why not live it to its potential and enjoy life. Usually the search for meaning ends up with the discovery of that creative self where you can find expression.

    Keep us informed as to how your dreams fit your waking life. When we start comparing the two, with an understanding of dream metaphor, we begin to see how they do apply and influence our lives. The helping hands of fate are there t every turn.

    Re: female horse

    gerard,
    many thanks for the soul future ref,the power,energy,movement,of the horse entry struck a chord,
    you are right about my bias towards the cheyenne,
    a few years ago i met a cheyenne holyman in a dream,he told me i would have trouble reaching the centre,and that i would have to follow him,this i did,at the centre i had to fight a huge red minataur like demon,i defeated it.
    unfortunatly i mentioned this dream to the wrong people,they told me it was a trick by the devil,
    it is this sort of predjudice and narrowmindedness that creates the problems,i am glad to say that i have cast that garbage off as a thou shalt and i am on my own path,albeit well lit by all who have gone before.
    as campbell once said,when you think you are alone,you will be one with all the world,i think i understand what he means.

    i don't remember hearing or reading anywhere that this journey would be easy,
    but what a journey!
    steve.

    Re: female horse

    Steve,
    In a perfect world the journey would merely be an exercise of the psyche in paradise. In the real world it is an experience for the psyche ina world of turmoil. Thus the struggle of the hero/heroine of myth. We merely need to read the myths to see the different paths that are taken. Each path represents a pattern of behavior that fits us as individuals. Of course often for the individual the patterns are found in more than just one myth. But all myths speak to us. One of the greatest myths is Buddhism where in their proverbial wisdom they tell us the first thing about life is it is 'all sorrowful'. Life is full of pain. But the life of the hero/heroine is also full of triumphs. Slaying one dragon at a time. That is the adventure, and the journey.
