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.

    My Sister and Cancer

    Hello everyone, I'm a newcomer here. Last night I had an extremely vivid dream where my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was very strange, considering that she is my identical twin and only 18. That's pretty much all that happened... I kept saying, "get another opinion, I know it's wrong"... and for some reason, she and my mother seemed concerned but calm and accepting of the news whereas I felt fear the whole time. The whole time I thought it was strange because I have always had strange fears about myself being chronically ill. Recently my sister and I parted ways when we went to different colleges, but last weekend she came to visit me for the first time. I was concerned because she has lost a lot of weight, and I had gained some. I was comcerned about her eating habits because I used to have an eating disorder and I fear that she may have developed one at college. Well, that's really all that happened... it's just so vivid and I can remember it so well, and it's really been bothering me all day. Thanks a bunch.

    Re: My Sister and Cancer

    Dreams address many issues in the life of each individual. One is the fears we have in life. Since you did state you have had strange fears about yourself being chronically ill, the dream may be addressing those fears. Since your twin has lost weight you may be projecting those fears onto her in your dream, she being identical to you {that is what a metaphor is, she is you in your dream}. It could be as simple as that.

    But on the other hand since you are identical twins there may be some psychic energy that the two of you share. Studies have shown this to be true. Your sister losing weight may be an indication there is something wrong with her. And it may not be cancer per say, but another illness. Something perhaps on the order of the Olsen twins, Mary Kate and Ashley. It may be wise to ask your sister about the possibility she is suffering from the same disease, an eating disorder. The fact that she has lost weight where you ahve gained alone is good reason to ask. Your dream may be trying to direct your attention to that possibility. Better safe than sorry.

    Re: My Sister and Cancer

    you know i had a dream this summer about my sister dying giving birth to dead baby 2 days before she had the baby. my heart really felt troubled because even though i knew it was a dream i felt it like you in my heart that something was wrong. i prayed to god like i never prayed before.and the day my sister gave birth the docter told her she was luck because her previoes pregnancy was a c-section and the docters did not sew her properly which caused her meat to turn hard as a rock. she and the baby came out fine but the feeling is there.what would have happened if i didnt prayed? would she still be alive?or will i now be putting flowers on her grave. i dont know if your a religous person and i dont know if youll find any use to the story but a sister is a sister and you will always have them in mind so keep the faith because probably like mine is a warning of what might happen.
