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.

    The Bank

    I pull my truck over to the side of the road where my bank is. I get out and am folding my work jeans. I see a woman go by in her vehicle and give me the finger. I think it is my friend Linda from work and laugh it off, but it is not Linda. The woman pulls over and in front of me, but she has parked on the grass. She and another woman get out and have two handicapped people with them, and are getting out their wheelchairs. I'm not understanding why she gave me the finger, but it must be because I've parked on the side of the road. I'm not sure what I've done wrong. I look over and see that the bank is getting very busy. A truck then pulls in between my vehicle and the other womans, perpendicular and on the grass.

    I asked my subconscious for this dream before sleeping, asking for understanding of myself and someone I love. We are not currently on the same page.

    Thanks Gerard, look forward to your reply.

    Re: The Bank

    I love how you formed your e-mail address. From one treelover to another I second that emotion.

    Your dream seems to be addressing your feminine aspects. And it may have to do with responsibilities of the feminine nature {what is required of you}. Part of you may not be insync with what you consider valuable or desirable. You may feel handicapped by some aspect of your feminine self but you are capable of getting out of this condition if you will get out of 'park' and move on with what you deem as valuable to your life. There may be something in your way to achieving this, an attitude or emotional considerations. What seems at odds with how you feel is actually in line with who you really are.

    Since you asked your dream before hand to give you guidance about a love matter I suggest you compare my thoughts to that and see where it may fit. Dreams often asnwer such questions when asked. Let me know what you come up with and perhaps we can better understand the message.

    And keep on keeping on loving those trees.

    *What seems at odds with how you feel is actually in line with who you really are.*

    Could you expound on that, Gerard?
    I need to dig a little deeper.

    To help my Self, I tend to look at what archetypes I am currently dealing with. I believe this is Bon Vivant(hedonist), in shadow aspect. When the fun stops or it's time to work, I tend to bail out, and give up on myself and what I can achieve...self sabotage. Throw in abandonment/rejection issues of me thinking "I'll get you before you get me" makes for such a soup in the realm of Love.

    I seriously want to heal this in myself. It has been in my awareness for quite some time, for that reason. This man I love requires me to do my "work" if I am to have the partnership I have been yearning for.

    Thank You Gerard for any additional input.
