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.

    house on fire

    My house is on fire; I’m running around in a frantic effort to get everyone out of the house. The first floor is burning and I can feel the heat, as it’s getting intense and unbearable with each passing moment. I check all the bedrooms on the second floor and they seem endless in numbers. I open each door looking for people to rescue, and finally in what seems to be my guest room I find a little girl who’s busy playing with a ragged doll while sitting on the floor in her white/pink nightgown. I’m surprised to see her in that room seemingly so calm…not paying any attention to me. I start yelling at her and asking her to come with me. She looks at me with such contempt in her eyes and ignores me and continues on playing with the ragged doll. I stop yelling and start begging her to come with me, but she continues with her play. In my frustration, I decide to leave her there, but right before heading downstairs she trips me over with the strings attached to her rag-doll. I turn back to look at her and to my surprise she seems much older yet wearing the same nightgown. I get scared of her and start running downstairs and manage to make it out side of the house where everybody is busy getting my “new” furniture out and I begging them to rescue the girl upstairs but nobody listens!

    Re: house on fire

    Ellie,
    A classic house-on-fire dream. The house is you and the fire is symbolic of some aspect, attitude, emotions, complex. The task is to determine exactly what symbolic form the burning house means in your dream.
    But before we do that I would suggest you take the dream, with the knowledge that the burning house is you, and compare it to your waking life. Read the House-On-Fire link to help determine what the symbolic representation might be.

    Pay special attention to the child. She is probably symbolic of you also, either the little girl that you were or the 'inner' little girl that you want to rescue. Or she could be both. She turns older, just as you turn older and face the need to rescue this part of you.

    And she has contempt. Where in your life is there comparable contempt? The rag doll could be something from the past or it could be a dsicription of inner emotions about yourself.

    This little girl frightens you. If this little girl is indeed you then what is inside her psyche is the thing that frightens you. And the nightgown. Does that conjur up anything that has meaning?

    Most likely the dream is addressing something from your past. Look at the links and questions I have posed and get back with me. Unless there is something hidden so deep within your unconscious that it is hard to get out, I believe you will see the connections. Let me know your thoughts and we will prceed from there.
