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.

    Cancelled Marriage

    Hi,
    I had this dream a week before. My parents were arranging a marriage for me. We were all waiting for waiting for bride groom and his family in that building. We were waiting near a staircase. Below I saw people very happy and busy with marriage works, when I was waiting. We lost hope. They didn’t come at all. My dad got angry. But I didn’t express any feelings. I was still without any expression. My dad argued with his family. But they didn’t respond in a right way. I mean they were happy and didn’t got my dad’s tension and worries. They didn’t even mind what my dad said. They were all talking rubbish. I just recalled his face. I saw his face very clearly in my dream. He looked very handsome. He was fair skinned, had no moustache, he was sitting in a cushion sofa. His face looked very happy. He was smiling at me. That second I felt bad. I thought he is not my man any more. That was the only second I felt bad. Marriage was cancelled.
    Then I came to my native city. His younger brother and few of his relatives came to my house. But I didn’t felt like talking to them. I didn’t even look at their face. I just crossed them and came to my bed room. When I walked to my bed room I recalled one sentence my friend spoke (One who often pops up in my dream). My friend is a divorcee. One day he told me, even though he is divorced his wife’s younger sister used to come to his house. I recalled this exactly in my dream. But he said that in my waking life. Then I felt like telling him about that cancelled marriage. I thought of calling him on phone and telling everything to him. Because he don’t know my marriage plan. I imagined in my dream as I’m telling everything to him on phone. Then I reached my bed room. I sat on my bed. I received a phone call in my mobile. Its from one of my family friend who is a doctor. He said that my dad is still arguing with that guy’s family. He said it seems the problem may get bigger…

    Then I woke up. And i used to do bibliomancy. When I prayed to god and did it, it says “ I’ve sent a message to u, but u didn’t got it exactly”. I’m very confused please help….

    Abi,
    I will look at your dream later today and see what I can come up with. Thanks for your patience.

    Re: Cancelled Marriage

    Abi,
    I want to point out for those who do not know that you are from India. That is most important when looking at a dream because the cultural aspects of a person can lend itself to the interpretation.

    Also a comment before proceeding with my interpretation. I see where you 'used' to study bibliomancy { a form of divination that seeks to know the future by randomly selecting a passage from a book, frequently a sacred text}. That is not something I would promote. Discerning the future can best be done by looking at the past and what you seek out of life. Life is full of unknowns but leaving it to mere chance to guide you is not the best way to live. Your culture offers many blessed avenues that are much more reliable than Western style 'clique' promotions. If we Americans had a better understanding of Buddhism our Western religions would fade to obscurity.

    As for your dream. I am going to look at the dream in terms of the personal aspect since your age is only 17. If I see possible issues I will point to them but I believe the dream is most likely focused on the personal aspect, mainly because of your age. Of course it is still a normal aspect of life in India for arranged marriages.
    In your dream I get the impression there is concern about such arrangements in your life. It may not just be about marriage in terms of man and woman but perhaps also choices in life you are making that your family dissapproves of {what is your parents feelings about your studies into bibliomancy?}. But there probably is that aspect of actual marrage that is a concern for you, hoping for the right man. In arranged marriages you often don't have that choice.

    I believe your dream is addressing those fears of choices that perhaps are being influenced by others when you want to make your own choices. It may be directly tied to a real marriage {is there an actual planned arrangement of marriage by your family?}. I also get the sense you need or you wish there was someone you could confide in, someone who will listen to your views and be sympathetic.

    Does any of the interpretation fit your waking life?

    Re: Cancelled Marriage

    Hello Gerard,
    Thank u. I dont have any fear of getting married. Even my parents have no idea about it now. Since im a medical student, it will take few more years to complete my studies and to get married. And i neither support love marriage nor dissmiss arranged marriage. So, i can tell this clearly, i dont have any fear of getting married (arranged) I havent thought about my marriage. My parents know i used to do bibilomancy. I think theres no problem with that. I saw that guys face very clearly.. what does it mean? usually in many such dreams face will not be clear. but here i saw it very clearly

    Re: Cancelled Marriage

    Abi,
    Sorry not to reply sooner. If there is not a real physical marriage involved in your life then look to other areas where marriage is a metaphor. It could represent a merging or balancing of different aspects in your life. It may involve a balancing, or blending of masculine qualities with other qualities you possess. Since you are very young I tend to believe such dreams are more on the personal level more so than of a collective experience {has to do with current personal experiences and not a collective experiences}. To determine what that personal experience may be would require an in depth knowledge of your life, which I don't have. But you do.

    I suggest you look at your personal life and see where there have been cancelled experiences that may fit into a 'marriage' aspect. There are a lot of masculine images which may involve masculine aspects of your own psyche. But the dream seems to be addressing personal issues so the masculine would a part of the personal life also. Your parents are involved. Where they fit is again a personal matter which only you can discern. I don't believe they, your parents, are representing aspects of your own psyche although they could be {look up parents in the dream dictionaries}. It is left up to you to put together some of these pieces of the puzzle about the personal aspects before anyone can say where they may fit and the meaning of your dream.
