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.

    Hi, What does rock symbolize in a dream?

    I dreamt that I was standing and sitting in a rock at the top.Some known person was also beside me. I was calm and happy seated in the rock and I try to get down and move up in the rock and found some inconvenience and fear when I slips during my movement. But still I continue move often in the same rock and I didn't see any other rocks besides this rock.

    Re: Rocks


    Did you by chance use Babel Fish to translate your post?

    The rock seems to be the focus of your dream. The top {standing and sitting in a rock at the top is unclear, the translation uses english but not language.

    The top may be your thinking self. The known person {do you know such a person?} may be be some known aspect about yourself. If it is someone you really know that can have a bearing on the dream's message.

    The calmness/happiness probably is you, a part of who you are, some aspect that possesses these qualities..

    The translation again loses much in the biggest part of your dream. But again, the rock seems to be the focus. A rock may symbolize many things. The possibilities include:

    From A Dictionary of Dream Symbols - A Jungian, psychology based interpretation

    A rock may symbolize permanence or antiquity; the most ancient - unconscious - part of the human mind; the foundations or essence of the self.

    From MDS Dream Dictionary

    This may be representative of your stability in a certain situation. However, a rock could also be a symbol of difficulties that you need to overcome, depending on the context of the dream.

    From Soul Future

    Stability, dependability, an anchor, something that is rock solid

    Look at these possibilities for rock and determine if one or more applies in your life. The rock is symbolic of something about you. Inconvenience and fear are two things in life you would be aware of. Compare the dream to your waking life.

    There may be an obsession with the rock. But it may just be the translation. Moving in and out, the focus on the rock, what could that be?

    Re: Rocks

    Hi Gerard, thanks very much for your reply. I did not use any translation utilities. But I guess I'm not that much clear with my post. Actually I dreamt that I was moving across the rock. The rock was not flat. What I am trying to mean is as how the hill would be sloping downwards, similarly the rock was. And in that I was climbing up and down in the same rock and stood sometimes at the final up(top).

    Sorry for this bad english but right now I am shortage of words that I remember.

    Thanks very much again.
