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.

My friend was trying to get us talking.I was too proud and told my friend I ve got to go the bathroom.I was hoping to see them in a caffeteria but I couldnt see them again.

    Re: swimming pool

    Going out may represent a need to let something out that is within you. The old shirt may represent old parts of yourself, perhaps old emotions or attitudes. The swimming pool could represent emotional issues, albeit still unconscious issues. The fact your ex had teh sam shirt may indicate it has to do with him {another possibility your ex represents your animus}.

    The friend in your dream is most likely is another part of you. This part seems to be a reconciliation aspect that perhaps is asking you to get over your pride. In this instance your ex may symbolize your animus {where in other parts of the dream he could very well represent himself}. I too proud person is a masculine trait.

    If you still have issues over your ex the dream may be addressing those aspects. Perhaps you need to communicate better with yourself your real feelings about the past relationship. If there are still strong feelings for him then perhaps the dream is suggesting you need to communicate thgose feelings to him. A third possibility is that there are similiar issue you and your ex had/have in common that needs to be addressed, emotional issues that need to be eliminated {bathroom}. A caffeteria is a place for nourishment. You grow when nourished. If you can not resolve these unresplved emotional issues you can not grow as a person.

    Give some thought to the possibilities I have suggested and let me know if any strike a cord.

    Re: Re: swimming pool

    Right on it Gerard. We were both proud people and I try not to think about him but the dreams won't, I even pray not to have a dream about him. They stop for a little while then come back sometimes 3 nights in a row. We split because his family didn't approve of me and yes there are unresolved issues that I would like to know but hey what about pride
