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 would like to know why and for what reason would I dream about little fruitcakes dancing around? Could it be that I have lots on my mind or is it because the holidays are coming up. The other night I dreamt that I woke up to go to the bathroom and I saw little fruitcakes dancing around on my kitchen table. Should I call 911? Please someone explain this to me!!!

    Re: fruitcakes?

    The holidays may have something to do with the fruitcake symbolism. If it were a different time of year there may have been some other metaphor used to represent what the dream is trying to communicate.

    The inference of the dream seems to be something needs to be eliminated, let out {going to the bathroom}. The kitchen table may represent preparations, all be it unconscious, to actually let these things out. But since you feel you need to call 911 there may be feelings you need help with these dancing fruitcakes.

    As for the symbolism of the fruitcakes, it may be so personal that only you can discern their relationship. They could represent overindulgence in some aspect. Perhaps it is merely the stress of this tim eof year that is causing you to 'need to let it all out'. Too much to do and too little help in doing it.

    Re: fruitcakes?

    LOL thank you Steve for your interpretation. Could very well be! My parents are gone, my one and only brother is a louse so I don't see him. The only ones I have now are my 5 grown kids and my boyfriend. When my boyfriend comes over the house he talks and talks and talks and talks to my kids. I feel like going outside to take a walk lol. You are not going to believe this but I never, ever tasted a fruitcake. I will this Christmas.
