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.

    Re: Dead body-mine?

    Your female cousin was symbolic of you, and referencing your real cousin.
    The nakedness on the beach may be the sometimes exposed emotions you experience over your male cousin's passing. The people in the dream would be other aspects of you, your psyche, the affected emotions, that as a part of the whole come together when you give thought to him and your grief. Beaches are often symbolic of the border of conscious and unconscious, the ocean being the unconscious. Something like the subconscious level to the unconscious level. Its ready to become conscious, thus the dream. The towel is for the tears.
    From Soul Future's dream dictionary for towel:

    Toweling yourself off may suggest recovering from an emotional upset

    The dead frozen body is in some way symbolic of you, usually to do with the emotions, metaphor of a condition. The natural instinct of the human animal {and other animals} is to carry on. You are carrying on with your life, trying to focus on the positive. The grassy area is that positive aspect, the natural self.

    The dream could also be addressing your own inner masculine self, your animus. Perhaps there has been a disabling of some masculine part of you. That would be the frozen body also. Perhaps it needs more help in reaching that grassy area. The dark doorway is the beach, you are looking deep into yourself, and see yourself. This dead part of you is showing itself the conscious mind.

    The second part of the interpretation, the deeper aspect is common in older persons, as well as the personal. The same dream in a younger person may be dealing more of the personal emotions more so than the deeper aspects.

    But I sense some deep pain, and also a desire to
    recover. Is that a fair assumption?

    In your dreams you are naked to world, explosing everything. Not necessarily to others,but definitely to yourself. In dreams you see the real self, perhaps your shadow.
