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.

    mansion dream


    I am an astrologer. I posted a few dreams back in the early part of this year and it was very revealing and enjoyable. This is a dream of one of my clients that I would like to present to you for your interpretation. I will give some comments after the fact. She is in her mid-forties and this was a reaccuring dream over many years throughout her twenties and thirties.

    The mansion is located on a grander plantation. This plantation is surrounded by big trees and there was a large lake nearby that had moss hanging from trees that overhang this lake. I remember the bottom floor of the mansion has a white and black checkerboard marble flooring. Upon entering the foyer I could see a starircase that led to the upstairs. At the top of the stairwell are huge columns ( 6 in total; 3 on each side ) which line the grand upper room. On top of these columns are statues of creatures not known to man. I am being led by others up to the 2nd floor where the statues on the pillars come to life. I see there are windows on the other side of these pillars and the windows are covered with sheer white floor lenth curtains. These curtains are moving with the breeze, sort of like they are breathing. I was questioned by a head person that was in charge. It was like a jury. The one in charge was very powerful and he was not happy with me at all. I was accused of being involved in having his brother killed. In this dream my life was taken " as a marytr ". My body was drained of all its blood. End of dream.

    Thanks for your time and expertise...James

    Re: mansion dream

    Here is what I see from this dream.

    The mansion on the greater plantation is probably a desire or need to establish a new sense of Self. But there is slow progress in this endeavor perhaps due to emotional concerns. She may be vacillating from one emotion to another or different aspects of her personality, denying or refusing to confront conflicts in her life. There may be a loss of sense of being or direction. She is being led by her emotions, or perhaps she is blinded by certain emotions. She is judging herself, unable to forgeive or forget something. These emotional concerns are physically draining.

    The whole dream seems to center on her emotional state of being. Something in hre life is preventing her from moving forward with her life, something perhaps where there is guilt or conflict. Her life is being drained by these emotions.

    Hope this helps.
