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.

    The Little Hidden Door

    "The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost

    and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that

    cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any

    ego consciousness, and which will remain psyche no

    matter how far our ego consciousness extends.... All

    consciousness separates; but in dreams we put on the

    likeness of that more universal, truer, more eternal man

    dwelling in the darkness of primordial night. There he

    is still the whole, and the whole is in him,

    indistinguishable from nature and bare of all egohood.

    If the human soul is anything, it must be of

    unimaginable complexity and diversity, so that it cannot

    possibly be approached through a mere psychology of

    instinct. I can only gaze with wonder and awe at the

    depths and heights of our psychic nature. Its

    non-spatial universe conceals an untold abundance of

    images which have accumulated over millions of years of

    living development and become fixed in the organism. My

    consciousness is like an eye that penetrates to the most

    distant spaces, yet it is the psychic non-ego that fills

    them with non-spatial images. And these images are not

    pale shadows, but tremendously powerful psychic factors.

    . . . Beside this picture I would like to place the

    spectacle of the starry heavens at night, for the only

    equivalent of the universe within is the universe

    without; and just as I reach this world through the

    medium of the body, so I reach that world through the

    medium of the psyche.

    Carl Jung, quoted from 'Jung and the Story of Our Time'

    by Laurens van der Post

    Van der Post illuminates Jung's work without getting into the scholarly or pedantic mode, and brings the world of Jung's time to bear on our understanding of the man and his work
