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.

    Hiding from father?

    I had the weirdest dream last night - me and my boyfriend were walking around a festival that is held in my hometown and I saw my semi-abusive father walking around angrily looking for someone. He doesn't know anout me and my boyfriend (who I am confused about - he's my first major boyfriend and he admits he wants to spend the rest of his life with me and I'm pretty sure I want to also but half of me is afraid of the commitment) yet. So I yell at him to run away so he doesn't find us, and I end up running through the crowd and climbing over the side of the railing on the pier on the bay and staying there, just hanging onto the railings. There is big crowd and the people near me seem happy and are smiling for some reason. I don't know where my boyfriend is, he isn't with me. Then I wake up - I don't understand it and I have a feeling it means something important? Thanks!

    Re: Hiding from father?

    The added info about your father provides perhaps an understanding of your dream. And the indecisiveness about your boyfriend. There are probably unconscious doubts, and perhaps conscious also, about relationships. Having had an abusive father may make you reluctant to trust men. Even though in the dream you are happy, your boyfriend is not with you. This may be a defense mechanism that questions having a relationship with a male. Being alone is an escape from abuse and may provide happiness, at least temporarily. But the decision whether to have a relationship, the unconscious questions about whether there may be abuse from other men, has left you hanging onto the 'railings'. That represents the indecision.

    The message of the dream confronts your fears about relationships. Having had a abusive father naturally can lead you to question future relationships. But you should not base your decisions on how your father treated you. You should judge individuals on their merits and not from how your father treated you.

    But one note of caution. Often women, and men, will unconsciously choose a partner that is similiar to their parents. All too often a person will get into one bad relationshop after another simply because of unconscious influences from childhood experiences such as yours. Even though you may be determined not to be get into a relationship that is abusive unconsciously you may end up doing just that. Make sure the person you choose is not your father-type. Get to know the person thoroughly before you make any real commitments. Just as your father may seem to be a nice, gentle person on the surface, underneath lives someone who has demons that have not been confronted and he takes it out on those around him. Be sure, completely sure of the person you choose. That way you can be happy in any crowd.
