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.

    white house

    you know i had this really weird dream a couple of months ago that really freaked me out and i still cant figure out.

    im in this beautiful white house and im dressed in white. im walking on this white marble staircase when all of a sudden i see my sister but shes a child and everytime i get near her she ages and the older she gets the sadder she gets. i get to the other side of her and theres a room with a rocking chair in it. whats really weird is that this is the only room in the house that is dark.
    i leave that room and in another room my mother is in it and it looks like she outside but its a room. she was using a bucket to throw out the water which i didnt even notice and all the while she was weeping.

    thats all that i remember

    Re: white house

    Andrea,
    Often when I look at dreams of someone younger, especially in their teens, I have to look at it a bit different than I do with an older person. The current personal aspect is often the focus of many dreams of those younger than 20-25 more so than the deeper aspects. In older people it is both the current personal and acculated personal, and often the archetypal dreams, whose purpose is to confront the deeper psychological aspects of the dreamer. Your dream has more of a tone that may be addressing deeper issues as much as current personal issues. And because it seems do so I want to look at the possibilities of the deepr aspects.

    I have a couple of questions that may help explain a lot about the dream {and your
    life
    } and provide some insights that might
    help us come up with a good interpretation.

    How old is your sister? What is that relationship like?

    Are there anything experiences from her childhood or your childhood that may be important to the dream?

    How is your relationship with your mother?

    Does the room with a rocking chair have any meaning?

    I don't often ask questions but with your age I want to know as much about you as you feel comfortable giving so I can better understand the dream. If there is any unconscious psychological message within the dream I certainly want to look at those aspects.

    Thanks,

    Gerard

    Re: white house

    well...

    at first the relationship with my sister was rough we didnt get along. she is 24 and i am 17 but when we were younger i hardly saw which ties in with our relationship with our mother. now though were are very close when she moved out we realized we found a bond we never had before.

    the relationship with my mother is another story. shes what you would call a sexist, she prefers males over girls. ever since i can remember we had to give our stuff to our brothes and do things for them. which is what our mom taught us to do. the funny thing is my mom never letted my dad boss her around. because of this me and my sister rebelled against her.

    the rocking chair... well when i was little my grandma bought me a little rocking chair. i loved it! i dont know why but i would just sit there and daydream all the time. unfortunetly one day when i was at school my mom threw away a couple of my childhood toys away including my chair.

    Re: white house

    Andrea,
    Thanks for the aditional info. It provides a lot to the dream interpretation.

    I believe the dream is addressing concerns about the relationship with your mother. At 17 life should be full of innocence {the white house, the white dress, the white marble staircase}. You probably have a positive outlook on life but because of the bad relationship with your mother in the past you have created a complex {the room your mother is in} towards her. Your sister is an example of how you feel that relationship will evolve as you grow older; the older you get the sadder the relationship with your mother will get. Is this not the case with your sister, her relatinship with your mother has gotten worse? She rebelled against your mother and you ae probably doing the same.

    The rocking chair would exemplify the unconscious attitudes brought forth from earlier childhood toward your mother. You state in your reponse that she threw away your loved rocking chair when you were a child. This is an inbedded memory that has stuck with you and has been re-inforced every since.

    The dream is also probably questioning the wisdom of your mother. This is another reason for rebelling against her. Even though she would give your brothers more attention than she did the two girls, she treated your dad differently {this will have to do with her own complexes toward men which probably can be explained from her own childhood experiences}. You can not respect someone who says one thing and does another. You probably intuitively sense the complexes/problems your mother possesses and would even sympathize with them if the relationship were better.

    Another aspect of the dream that unconscious plays in your mind is your fear that you too may turn out like your mother. Your defense is rebellion. But if the unconscious attitudes are not realized and put into proper perspective your life may evolve to some those attitudes your mother possesses. You grew up with those experiences and even though you outwardly reject them, unconscioulsy they are re-inforced in your mind and can present themselves later in your life. You may not be like your mother but may go to the other extreme and be too different in your reltaionship with people in later life.

    Let me know your thoughts to my interpretation and perhaps we can discover more about the message of your dream. As I stated I beleive you have a positive attitude toward life dispite the negative experiences from earlier life. Moving out with your sister has helped but both of you need to confront the relationship with your mother and put it into proper perspective. If not then the unconscious attitudes provided to you as children could cause negative results later in life, for both you and your sister.

    Re: white house

    you know a creepy thing happened just the other day my sister was yelling at her son for something bad that he did, but just in that one second she reminded me a lot like my mother. the relationship with my sister and my mom is better now seeing that my sister is a mother now they get along but what really creeps me out is that when we were young we would vow never to become like her and scary enough that how she is. i saw her crying the other day and she told me she tried not to be like her but she couldnt help it. the only thing me and my sister got from my mother was her temper.
    you know i miss that rocking chair but not because i would use it all the time but because my grandmother gave it to me and she told me to take very special care of it because she had it made especiallly for me and when my mom threw it away i felt like i failed in something again. my mother was always there to remind me of my faults and not my accomplishments which is very rare in her opinion
