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.

    Dream Last night

    I have been having struggles in my life recently with relationships, panic and anxiety I had a dream today. I woke up panicky and anxious and went back to bed. I had a dream that along the lines of I was in a gang war and someone had hurt me. I came back to find him and I took out a bazooka and started firing at him! I wanted revenge for what he had done to me. The first two missed, although the second put this mans head on fire, and the third hit him but didn't explode. He threw it back at me in shock and as I looked at it it was on fire. A bomb on fire but it was not exploding and did not explode. Somehow after an ambulance came and was trying to save the man that I attacked and then I ran away in fear of being caught. I am not sure exactly what the dream means. At first I thought it meant the situation I am in is going to explode...but then I realized the bomb was on fire and never exploded...and then the ambulance came and started fixing the man up...Any other interpretations would help. Thanks for any help

    Hi Joel

    Usually a figure of the same sex in your dream represents your shadow. You are literally 'at war' with that side of yourself and self-destruction is implied. The shadow can only be faced and intergrated, if it is 'attacked' it will reflect it back to you, as in the dream and if ignored then may be 'projected' onto others.

    That is an extremely good point Claire! I didn't even think of that but it makes a very good sense to me. The man did seem shocked that I would try to hurt him...almost hurt...like he could not believe I was so angry. As well I should mention I have started Therapy up and have been highly investigative of myself lately. This has happened to me before and when it does my dreams tend to be more significant then under 'normal circumstances. The fact that an ambulance and a nurse were trying to repair the man I injured make me wonder as to what that means as well. Perhaps showing myself I am trying to repair the damage done? As well, you say the shadow needs to be integrates...that leads to how does one begin to do that? Thanks for any Help.

    Re: Dream Last night

    congratulations on commencing your journey in therapy.
    It sounds like you are committed to healing or integration with yourself, something some people merely ignore or 'gloss over' and go through life without self knowledge or growth.
    It sounds like you are taking the steps you want to and this is reflected in your dreams?

    Dear Joel,

    My first feelings about your dream is that you feel caught up in this situation, unable to escape. Perhaps you feel torn up between helping him, someone, or the sitation or just escaping from it. There are obvious feelings of revenge and also guilt. You said "i was in a gang war and someone had hurt me", what do you think the gang could signify, i.e a collective group, or collective emotions that are hurting you, yet in the end it is this man that is important in the dream, the man you want to take revenge on. Any emotions dealing with intimate relationships, sexuality?
    I hope I don't confuse you more, just trying to pull out the main symbols for you to think about,
    take care

    Also Joel,
    you might want to see the dream as a positive first step, 'fire on the man' may signify a need to get rid of him, and then you looking at it, are you holding it? Somehow I thought that you were holding it in your hands??? Anyway this fire could be healing, cleansing of the pent up emotions, a release.
    thanks

    Re: Dream Last night

    I felt the fire had a cleansing aspect as well...the fact that it the bomb did not explode makes me feel that the situation was no longer explosive but being worked on. Also I find it interesting about the gang war how you relate it to collective emotions or unconscious...I like that. However the man in the dream was a friend who betrayed me, which is why I felt a need to hurt him so, Claire's idea that he was the shadow I think made sense, he was of dark color and a male...Thanks for the all the help all anymore is always appreciated.
