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.

    Sorry to flood but I have a lot.

    I keep having this horrid recurring dream of catching an UGLY, filthy, gigantic fish out of a small dirty puddle. The fish tends to be flat and ribbon-like. In every dream I'm exited that I have the catch of my life until it comes out, usually hissing or chomping down with its hiddeous teeth. I need to know what this means.

    My guess is that im not fishing in the right places.

    Re: Sorry to flood but I have a lot.

    John,
    The under-water aspect of the dream is probably addressing unconscious aspects of yourself that needs to be identified and acknowledged. This ships in the first dream are probably aspects or vessels of emotions within you. The octopus may be the many different directions/emotions that are pulling on you. The fat, stupid man would be one of those aspects representing a negative aspect within you. These negative aspects are sucking the life out of you. Identify those negative aspects and you have a corresponding metaphor with the fat man in your dream {fat may symbolize over-inflated or over-indulgence. The man may be you, or a masculine aspect within you}.

    This dream, the ugly gigantic fish out of a small dirty puddle, may be more direct in its approach to the negative aspects in the first dream. The fish may be you, the real you as opposed to the person you project yourself to be. The dirty puddle is probably the negative aspect that needs to be identified. Perhaps this small negative part of you has to much influence on the whole you.
    Look at the narrative in the dream about being excited having caught the 'catch' of your life, umtil it comes out. Where would this fit into your waking life, what experiences would this represent? Once you identify this metaphor you will understand what negative aspect is sucking the life out of you.
