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.

    I have been with a woman for 5 years now and we have a 3 year old son together. I have had several dreams on this subject lately but the most recent one is troubling me the most. In the dream I go to the house of a female friend who I have known for a few years now and am atrracted to. When I get to her house we sit down and talk to each other and then go to watch a movie in her living room. During the movie I stretch out to relax on the couch and she lays back into my arms. Then she looks at me and says, "Did you ever have something you wanted to say but don't know how to say it?" and then she proceeds to tell me that she loves me. After which we make love to each other. then the dream ends.

    Re: adultery

    Such dreams often are addressing inner aspects of the psyche having to do with your feminine qualities. Unless there is some other woman in your life, or a desire for another woman, then the dream is probably doing just that {see Anima/Animu in left column of page}. The desire may be totally unconscious which may indicate some deeper need for feminine comfort that may not had been given to you as a child/youth.

    As far as the inner aspects of the psyche the dream is trying to direct your attention to those feminine qualities within that you are attracted to, or should be attracted to. This could involve earlier experiences in life having to do with other females, your mother as an example. This aspect would be a positive quality that you have not used as often as you should {house of a female friend} but you may have wanted to {known for years and am atrracted to}. Your statement of the dream "Did you ever have something you wanted to say but don't know how to say it?" gives me the impression that the dream is addressing the past where you may not have been able to talk to some female in your life, again your mother as an example. Or it could merely be addressing those feminine traits within your psyche that you have not utilized as you should.

    The best way to determine which it may be is to look back to the past and detremine if there was an experience where you feel you should have been able to communicate with a female and did not {such as your mother}. I know it seems very strange if the case is your mother that you have sex with her but having sex itself is a metaphor for uniting opposites and not actually the sexual act itself. You may have that need to properly express yourself, and her to you, those feelings of love. If it is the inner feminien aspects that you need to acknowledge and communicate with look at the Anima/Animus page and determine what feminine qualioties you have neglected and now wish to communicate with. Again it is a positive qualitiy which will benefit you no maatter which aspect of your life the dream is addressing.

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