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.

    car in woods

    My friend had this dream, but she doesnt have a comp, so I told her I would figure it out for her. . .
    Anyways, she had a dream that she went to a party and when she parked, a man did a U-ey and stopped so close he almost hit her car. Then he gave her a really dirty look. . .Then, while she was at the party, there were fights going on, so she decided to leave. She went to go to her car and it was gone! Thinking someone stole her car, she called the police and they said there was nothing they could do since SHE had her keys to her car in her purse. But then someone asked her what kind of car she drove, and she told them, and they said her car was parked in the woods (or tall grass so she couldnt have seen it w/o really looking). Someone had pushed her car into the woods. So, she goes and gets in it and drives away. I have no clue what this means, and neither does she, but she did have a dream a few weeks ago about her car being in the woods, so it's recurring. . .Please help. Thanks.

    Re: car in woods

    I am assuming your friend is a teen just as you are.

    The first part of the dream probably has to do with some personal experience, the man doing the U-ey and almost hitting her car {she is the car}. But the context of even that probably is addressing some inner conflict she is experiencing. In her life, the party, there are fights going on which she wishes to get away from. Those conflicts probably have to do with her identity with herself, she can't find her stolen car. But she has the keys to who she is but may be insecure about that identity {they are hidden in her purse}. She is unable to see or determine her true identity because it is hidden away, probably due to peer pressure, perhaps to do with deeper issues.

    Teenage life is a time where identity is being formed. Peer pressures often cause teens to act one way when in reality they are not that way, they are acting out what others expect from them. This dream is probably addressing those issues. To what extent her identity is in question, is it merely superfiscial and reacting to peer pressures, or are there deeper issues, I can not determine from the dream. But this of type dream is common among teens.
