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.

    peak experience

    hi all,
    i would be grateful for any thoughts on this dream.
    especialy the word EVEREST!

    the dream.
    i am climbing up mount everest with a female,i reach a very narrow ridge,only 6 inches wide.
    i am worried that one misplaced step either side, is instant death,the feeling of exposure was terrifying,howling wind and snow.
    this ridge is only 100ft from the summit,i can see it,
    in my way is a huge sealion,
    it try's to trip me and make me fall,i am sat on my backside at this stage,i manage to push it out of the way with my feet,i get up and head for the summit,
    i glance back and see that there are now two sea-lions and the female will have to remain behind.

    the only thoughts i have on this dream myself are,

    it reminded me of a previous dream right down to the details except one,the sealion was a lion,it tried to stop me with affection,i gave in,and never reached the summit.
    the similarity between these dreams is quite amazing but the outcome of the latest is obviously more desirable,definately a recurring pattern of events.

    regards steve

    Re: peak experience

    Hi Steve,
    A thought - a sea lion lives in water and on land. Naturally exist in both with each serving a specific function in their life. Water - fluid, feminine, emotions, nurturing, etc Land - stationary, male, rational, etc.

    Posibly a connection.

    Re: Re: peak experience

    many thanks kathy for your thoughts,

    i was thinking about something joseph campbell said,
    namely,your image of god becomes the final barrier,and its a peak experience to break past all that,
    based on this,i saw just for a moment,the possibility of a trickster figure.
    sealions are quite cute and comical looking and are very good at doing tricks,(not that i approve of the exploitation of animals in this way),they are sentient intelligent creatures,and as you say,they are masters of two worlds.
    gerard has mentioned on occasions,that just when you think a thing is so,in pops the trickster and blows away your misconceptions.
    what a sealion was doing on the top of everest,just shows the bizzare way dreams can get your attention.
    interestingly enough,i have had this same dream before, it was'nt a sealion ,but a lion,
    i feel that something is reccuring,the first dream,i failed to reach the summit,i was held back by the lion,which was actually showing me great affection,like a domestic cat,the latest,i reach the summit,and have actually got past something.
    i even looked at the possibility of a pun,see-lion,a ref to the earlier version of the dream.
    i have my spade,i will dig further.
    thanks, steve
