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.

    dog bite

    Dreamt i was in a big house at a party and there was a few friends around, my sister was there as well, this dog walks into the room and my sister says to me its ok its a friendly dog, so i put my hand out and it grips on to it and digs its teeth deep and it locks on to my hand and wont let go, i can hear myself screaming as it hurts, and im whimpering and its almost like its real and as im sleeping im thinking to myself can my husband hear me crying?
    I have had this same dream twice, and both times it has been when i have slept over at my sisters new house, so i had been drinking, gone to bed a little drunk, and i usually dont drink.

    Re: dog bite

    Look at the possibility that the dog has some relationship to your attitudes toward your sister. Also look to the possibility that it ahs to do with some attitude towards with your husband since in the dream you state 'im thinking to myself can my husband hear me crying?'

    The house and the party could very well have to do with the good time you were having at your sister's, partaking of drink and feeling good. But it may very well represent your normal state of character and the dog incident deviates from that wholesome attitude.
    The dog is central to understanding what thing turned on you and bite you. And I believe that may be the message of the dream, something or someone who you thought of as friendly turns on you and bites you. It could even be an attitude you possess that comes back to bite you. Take a look at the dream dictionary possibilities to help determine what the dog may symbolize.

    The last statement about your husband probably has real meaning. Often the last part of a dream offers solutions or possibilities to the negative aspects of the dream content. Is there any attitude on your part towards your husband that would make you feel he has turned on you, especially since you have offered him your 'hand'?

    Let me know if any of this hits home and we can go from there.

    Re: dog bite

    because I have had the same exact dream twice,both times at my sisters was the puzzling part for me.
    When you said it was a bit different to my wholesome image,you were correct,I do not normally drink,so I was not myself..( or was I ? ).
    When i said can my husband hear me crying,I meant because it seemed so real and he was sleeping next to me, I thought that maybe he could hear what I was going throug.
    I have a great relationship with my sister,but then again,maybe i don't ? I am not sure, one thing I am sure of, both times it seemed so real that the dog was biting me,that i thought I was going to have wounds on me..I could even feel the saliva of the dogs mouth on my hand ??
