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 had a dream that my mother-in-law was living next to us. She had a lot of friends over and all of them were bringing to her small, smooth, ivorish stones. There was aslo my mum where who didn't bring anything. My M-I-L didn't seem to be very happy about the crowd and the gifts (although she seems to love it in reality). Until now she looked like in reality. Now she appeared like an older, "bigger" woman dressed in very fancy green outfit,one piece with matching scarf on her head. Looked like an African woman's outfit but her face was white. I went to her and told her she shouldn't be worry that we'll take care of her and I might not be her favorite daughter-in-law but I'll help and take care. She was nice looking lady.

    pls help me to understand that dream better

    Re: mother-in-law

    Seems to be a very complex dream. But it may be reflective of those qualities that your mother-in-law possesses that you see as positive. Or it may be that you do wish to be in favor with her.
    Wisdom may be one of characteristics you see as reflective of your mother-in-law. Anyone who has gifts brought to them often are held in high esteem. And a truly wise person doesn't want/need gifts. The older, bigger woman may symbolize older knowledege that a wise person possesses. And although there are characteristics about your mother-in-law that are not appealing there are more than do appeal to you. Being from Turkey African dress would be more approperiate but the white face may more represent who you are. Wanting to take care of your mother-in-law in the dream would represent a desire to take care and cultivate those wise aspects that you wish to posssess. Does this fit into the reality of the relationship with your mother-in-law?

    Re: mother-in-law


    Thank you very much for "zooming" my dream.
    I think I try to be in favour of my mother-in-law and I want to see her positive side badly...To see that woman in green was a pleasure for me. It kind of proved me being right with my life approach and encouraged to go ahead w/ it.

    psWorking w/ dream is such a great fun and it is a great tool.
