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.

    In the dream, I was at a funeral of someone but I dont know who it was, my ex-boyfriend's mother was at the funeral. After the funeral she came up to me and and asked me how I knew the deceased and I told her that he was a friend of mine, she said that she knew his family. then she asked me to stop by her home after the service, and I agreed. When I arrived at her home, I noticed that there was a crowd of people at the front door, when I got to the door I was trying to figure out how I was going to get through the crowd so that I could enter the house. Then my ex-boyfriend appeared, grabbed my hand and reached through the crowd and led me through the crowd into the house. He then took me to his room and asked what I was doing there, I told him that his mother invited me and how much I missed him and how I wanted us to get back together, he agreed and then I woke up.

    Re: Ex-Boyfriend

    Funerals are places where we lay things to rest. In dreams they often represent aspects, or experinces, of our own lives.
    In your dream you first state you do not know who the person is. But when asked by your ex's mother you state it is a male friend. Perhaps this means there are unknown qualities, or emotions, about a male friend from your past {perhaps he is no longer in your life, thus the symbology in the dream would show him as a dead part of your life}. This whole scene may be related to your ex-boyfriend. Exactly how his mother fits in, if at all, is probably something you personally understand.

    On the other hand the dream may be purely symbolic and the characters represent inner aspects. The above can be true and the inner aspects can be true with it.

    Looking at the dream there seems to be some aspect of the past relationship that still lingers. Did his mother have anything to do with the breakup? The crowd in front of her door may be what you felt you had to get through to get to him, the crowd being her.
    But the crowd could also represent aspects about yourself that prevented you from getting/being to him. Did you break off the relationship? It may be due to inner aspects, values you hold, that did not fit.

    Did he reach out to you before you actually broke up with him? This may be a reference to his reaching out to you in the dream. But it also may suggest you still have emotions over him that you need to reach and acknowledge and put them in their proper place. Examine the relatiosnhip, the past and your present emotions, and see what is there.
