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.

    Electricity

    Greetings All,

    I ask your thoughts...could the following series of separate events with a common denominator when viewed cumulatively hold a synchronistic aspect? Events in order:

    1. June 05 to August 05 - A series of near by lighting strikes caused power surges that eventually fried the UPS attached to the computer. No other electrical appliances were affected. I began unplugging the UPS and computer when not in use.
    2. August 05 to November 05 - In three separate accidents semi trucks hit an electric pole which disconnected the line from my house. Lived there six years without incident then three in four months span.
    3. December/January 05 - Electricity was off for up to two weeks in this area due to an ice storm. A lesser number of homes in the area, including mine, were not affected.
    4. July 06 - Electric burn by an arc while unplugging a hair dryer from an extension cord, extension cord toast.
    5. August 06 - hair dryer shorted out, sparking! while using it; outlet sparked when plugging in vacuum; electric utility over charge error in new service account; credit received from same utility for overcharge on prior service account. (apparently they prefer a to reading the meter...)

    1 through 4 occurred at past residence. 5 occurred at a friends home and new residence.

    The obvious implication is to be more cautious with/aware of electricity.

    If there may be meaning, what could the ‘hidden’ significance be in these events?

    Your input is greatly appreciated…

    Kind regards,
    Kathy

    Re: Electricity

    Synchronicity:

    ...Or is it, as Carl Jung believed, a glimpse into the underlying order of the universe? He coined the term synchronicity to describe what he called the "acausal connecting principle" that links mind and matter. He said this underlying connectedness manifests itself through meaningful coincidences that cannot be explained by cause and effect. Such synchronicities occur, he theorized, when a strong need arises in the psyche of an individual. He described three types that he had observed: the coinciding of a thought or feeling with an outside event; a dream, vision or premonition of something that then happens in the future; and a dream or vision that coincides with an event occurring at a distance. No one has come up with a definition that has superceded his, although there has been debate on whether events linked to precognition and clairvoyance should be included as synchronicity.

    Is there a need to be 'shocked' into thinking about anything in particular Kathy? lol



    However, will also post from a scientific point of view the naturally occuring phenomenom of lighting 'connecting' and striking again...

    Re: Electricity

    Claire,
    I completely forgot to respond on this. I accessed this prior post just now to get the web site address you recommended. I read the study prior but with another 'electricity' incident this morning want to reread. My sincere apologies I did not respond prior.

    In answer to your question, yes,I believe you are right about there being something the Psyche needs shocked into thinking about, a realization. I'm still working on this, determining...defining...and purpose. I have worked out some of this yet requires further examination.

    This morning, I lay in the dark tape recording a dream. As I recorded, a thought came to mind - what a main character (Frankenstein) symbolizes - a bright flash, loud buzz of electicity, minor explostion...a transformer blew. I later walked the dogs I noticed the transformer serves only two inhabited/used buildings, one of which my apartment is located. Buildings all around the transformer had electricity.

    The Journey continues...

    Thanks ever so much for your insight.
    Kathy
