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.

    snake made love to me

    I have had the strangest and most healing dream ever last night. I hav always had a phobia of snakes and have repeatedly dreamt of being in a room (bedroom sometimes) where snakes are coming in through all kinds of holes. but last night, i had a healing dream with a very intelligent and friendly snake. there was initially a snake charmer around to handle the snake and i had my first contact with teh snake - he coiled around me and although i was scared, i stayed and let it coil around me. then my second contact with the snake came without hte presence of the snake charmer. the snake approached me and started coiling around me - touching me in ticklish places and cradling my head with its body. then it reached down suddenly and unexpectedly into my underwear and rubbed my genitals. i was wholly aroused and relaxed surprisingly..... there was no way i could run anyway cos i am afraid the snake could bite me. perhaps the fear and uncertainty added some sort of arousal to this experience. what do you make of this dream, Gerad?

    Re: snake made love to me

    Since you stated in your post that this was a healing dream then perhaps all you need to do is to look at your waking life and see what aspects have had a 'healing' there. Snakes often have sexual conotations and in your dream there is that sexual content. Perhaps you recently have had a 'healing' in some attitudes you once held as tatoo. The snake charmer may be important to revealing what aspects that have recently undergone a healing transformation.

    But there is always the posibility the snakes represents something else. The snake charmer could represent a defense mechanism that you needed to protect yourself from someone or something. Once you overcame the fear or obstruction of the aspect that needed healing you no longer needed the defense mechanism.
    Hyper-Dictionary offers these insights that may help:

    It was an early and universal opinion that the most venomous reptiles could be made harmless by certain charms or by sweet sounds.

    Perhaps there was something in your life that was seen as venomous but has recently disappeared thus providing a healing from having to confront it.

    Let me know your thoughts to my interpretation and perhaps we can gain further insights to the possibilities.

    Re: snakes

    Dear Gerard
    That was a very insightful interpretation. I'm impressed. you are right about looking at my waking life to see the significance of the healing. It has to do with me forgiving myself in things I did not confront myself with in the past. So the healing came when I consciously went back to the past and pried myself loose from the past. THen I could move on. I think this lack of forgiveness was preventing me from experiencing intimacy on a sexual level.
    I am really amazed by the dream symbols that our subconscious throws out. They are so amazingly and incredibly meaningful. I have always been a scientist at heart and never believed in such things but right now, I am living my waking life and listening to my intuition a lot more. Thanks GErard for the interpretation.

    Re: snake made love to me

    Thank you for the compliment about the interpretation. I would like to think I have some special abilities when it comes to dreams but must confess the primary source to my insights are the Jungian philosophies which were developed over his lifetime of exploring dreams and the psyche. Time and time again I find his approach to dreams, which is primarily scientific, are correct. My past 13 years of studying his works {with much credit to Joseph Campbell for his articulation of the basic concepts of Jungian thought} have induced a natural connection to my intuitive senses that help me see into dream symbols and metaphors. Anyone with a developed intuitive mind who will study Jungian concepts will be able to do the same.

    You will notice I tried to cover all the bases to the possible interpretations. Whereas I can often see into the perimeters of the dream motif the actual experiences/emotions that the dream is addressing can only be known by the dreamer. An intelligent person who has given time to exploring their life will often be able to compare the interpretations to the waking life and see where it may fit. Of course your keen intelligence is readily visible with your response and I am sure with your dedication to the science {facts} any other related issues will be openned up to discovery.
    Perhaps your interest in dreams will lead you to investigate their importance to the waking life. I like to think the Forum is a good place to learn more about dreams, the psyche and self discovery. Like myself you look to the science for verification and Jung did also. But the mystery is also something that Jung addressed and in a way that makes so much since to the intuitive mind. Beyond that it is truly an interesting subject to explore. And the benefits of exploring the inner life is most rewarding.
