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.

    This is why this site ROCKS, Gerard...

    Hi, how is every one?

    Firstly i would like to thank you Gerard, it takes a really wonderful person to do what you do, and for being so open minded and dedicated, so many people should take a leaf from your dream book!

    I posted my dream," My husband, sex and sucide" on the psyhcic Guild website

    Here's what they said:

    "Stephanie, this was a very long and involved dream. There are many issues and the final suicide is sad. The dream is warning you to seek some counselling and help. A marriage counsellor would be a wonderful help. However, also you need to face trust issues, you seem to be very suspiscious of your husband and bent on sabotaging your marriage. Before going to bed drink rosemary tea with honey and this will give you more pleasant dreams. Rita_006"

    Seek councelling my ass! Actually she's right I do need councelling, now due to her conplete ignorance!Can you believe the nerve, too involved so tell them they need councelling. She didn't even ask what previous events occured before i had the dream. I had organised a massive party for my husband and his work mates took me two weeks and a lot of stress to organies it and after all of that one couple came and i had a miscarage around the same time, though i've only just found out this week that was the case. Suspicious of my hubby? If you met us you'd want to throw up cos we're so lovey dovey; I want to through up! I'm really offended by her statement about my marriage. My marriage comes first, always! I have one question: how can dreaming such things sobatage my marriage? It's a dream not reality Rita. Now i'm going to tell her that!

    Gerard, the idea of a questionare is excelent as this is the perfect example of what happens when you don't have the background info. And i was wondering if you might have some time in the future could you please look at my dream and tell me what you think. Kathy and Andrea were really wonderful and have helped so much, thankyou to them again.

    Ps. hope your better Gerard

    P.p.s probably need anger management after this! LOL

    Re: This is why this site ROCKS, Gerard...

    Steffy,
    I appreciate your kind words about MDS and the Dream Forum. There are many wonderful people who help with dream requests and who like myself have a great interest in dreams and personal growth. Their insights are invaluable and because they are willing to share what they know visitors to the Dream Forum have access to vital info about their dreams, and themselves. I like to think of the Forum as a learning place for all who wish to spend a little time investigating the world of dreams. We are all students, as well as teachers.

    I will be more than happy to look at your dream. The past few weeks have been very demanding and if it were not for people like Kathy and Andrea I would not be able to keep up with all the requests. I will take some time with your dream later today and see what I can come up with.

    Thanks again for your kind thoughts. Perhaps you will become one of the many who find that dreams can offer a great source of inner knowledge and share your experiences so others can learn from them.

    Gerard
