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.

    Hair on the palms of my hands

    I can't really remember much of most of the dream, except that I was trying to cleanout a room(my kids' maybe ?) There were a lot of people around and at some point I look at my hands - my palms and there are several hairs growing out of them, about 2"-3" long, some even on the fingertips. I said to myself "now when did this happen how gross" I tried to cut them and I did a couple but I thought that they felt thick to cut and would probably grow back. There were about 6 or 7 altogether. They were sticking sort of up and over.

    Re: Hair on the palms of my hands

    Asta,
    Interesting dream. And one that points out the importance of knowing the gender of the dreamer. If in fact you had been a male then the dream may have had a different interpretation. Most all men know of the joke about hair growing in the palm of their hands.

    The cleaning out of a room may be cleaning of some aspect of your psyche. If it were indeed your kid's room it may indicate it has something to do with that aspect of your life. But the kid's room may also be eluding to your own childhood.

    Hands often symbolize ability. Hair is often symbolic of mental activities. And the palm can represent control over certrain aspects of your life, or the healing process if there are aspects {from childhood perhaps} that need such healing. If you put this together it may indicate that you need to give more thought to certain aspects in your life that need 'cleaning' out. In the process of doing that you may receive some healing from doing so and the mental activities that could produce stress or discomfort in your life will get better.
    Since there are hairs also on the fingertips of the hand this may indicate the information the dream is trying to communicate to you is at the tips of your fingers. You unconsciously are aware of these aspects that need cleaning but they are dwelling in the subconscious ready fro conscious attention.

    One thing that may be important to know is the fact you are at that beginning stage of mid-life. Often experiences that have accumlated from life and have not been properly sorted out begin to show themselves during this stage of life. THis may be the beginning of that process for you. To help you bgetter understand this stage of life go to my page on Mid-LIfe Issues. I also suggest you keep up with your dreams since future dreams may help clarify what room{s} you are needing to clean. Also looking at your present life and determine if there are actual problems with real children {if you have any}. This may help clarify parts of the dream. But the dream can be addressing actual experiences with real children and at the same time be addressing your own inner 'child'. Dreams often do that.

    Also something yo consider is the 'grossness' that is implied in the dream. THis may have some bearing in understanding the dream message. And the fact that you tried eliminating a 'couple' of hairs may also suggest a tie to the message. All symbols have some bearing. Many are persoanl and only you can know what they symbolize.

    Let me know your thoughts to my suggestions and perhaps we can go further in what the dream is trying to communicate.

    Re: Hair on the palms of my hands

    Gerard,
    Thankyou for the interesting interpretation. I'm not sure if the cleaning and the hairy palms are connected as they may have been dreamt at different stages through the night. Those were just the two i remember most vividly. Plus I have been trying to clean my kids playroom recently and been frustrated with all the junk that has accumulated. I've had a lot of wierd dreams in my life but the hair on my palms is the only dream I felt I needed and compelled to know the meaning of. My hands even felt different the next day. Whatever it is, I know it is something so profound that it will affect me for the rest of my life.

    Re: Hair on the palms of my hands

    Asta,
    The actual cleaning of your children's room is the personal aspect the dream is addressing. Our everyday lives are a part of our dreams. But there is probably something a bit deeper the dream is addressing also. As you stated, "I know it is something so profound that it will affect me for the rest of my life". If you sense something that strong, an intuive feeling, then there is something to it.

    Where to look? At your whole life. From earliest memories, childhood experiences, the whole accumulated experiences that make up who you are. That is where you find the answers, inside, much more so than outside.
