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.

    fox friend

    Hi I dreamt last night of a fox,
    I was standing in the middle of the road, on a grass strip, the road had two directions, and I was standing the middle on the strip, with a friend, I don't know who it was. The road also seemed to be in a valley.
    Anyway we saw a fox running through the road, he didn't look exactly like a fox, its fur was in two colours, a bit curly and long.
    He seemed to be looking back at me, and almost after passing from one side of the road to the other, he came to me. Its manner was almost humane, I felt that he liked me.
    He was standing close to me, almost 'kissing my face'and then we decided to take him home.
    The dream after this gets a bit blurry, but I remember spending more time with the fox at home, and feeling his affection for me.
    In the house, I remember a room, where the linen kept changing, to make the room fresh all the time.
    And this time when I came in, the linen was taken off for washing. The room looked bare a bit, I remember a window, and not much more in the room, two beds?

    I have dreamt of a fox few months ago, and at that time, I felt warm emotions from that fox too.
    Sexual energy? Yet somehow foxes are seen as cunning, I am slightly confused.

    any ideas?

    Re: fox friend

    In seeking the inner guide we are confronted with two choices. One is to dwell in the ego-centered life of opposites. The other is to seek higher ground, self discovery, creativity and spirituality. This is the road of the hero/heroine in mythology. Your first paragraph seems to be directed at this aspect in your life. Two opposite directions you have to choice from, with the valley representing going within, exploring your inner realms.

    Foxes, while often seen as cunning and perhaps deceit, are also known for their insight and intellect. They are also solitary animals. To travel the hero path one must do it alone {although there are the helping hands of fate along the way}. Spending time with the fox may be your super conscious self seeking to spend more time with the inner journey. Evolving changes become part of life because of the discoveries from the inner journey {linen}. The inner Self becomes the new identity to be reconciled. Your desire will be to spend more time with this aspect of self.

    Although the choices may be clear the actual changes needed may have not been fully implemented. In the last part of your dream there is that need for washing the linen and there are still the opposites {two beds}. Confusion is common place when making such defining decisions in life.

    As for the personal aspects of the dream I suggest you look for instances where actual life experiences fit the above motif. You mentioned sexual energy. Was that for a reason or just an after thought? Do the two beds have meaning in context with the sexual aspect?

    Re: fox friend

    Hi Gerard,
    thank you for your very helpful response.
    I think the dream helps me in a way, well I have been waiting for it for a while, something that represents the positive choices I might have taken so far to become a fulfilled person, with a healthy and positive energy.

    Yes, I have felt the positive energy of the fox in the dream, it had so much love and calm about it, i intuitively felt those positive emotions, but like you said, there is the confusion sometimes.
    And sometimes I don't know what makes me unhappy, or why I do things a certain way, or what should I do about it.
    Why I asked about sexual energy? Well I looked up the dream dictionary, it mentioned sexual energy, also I see myself as a very sensual person, seeking for that sensuality, I also assumed since the fox had love for me, and felt it was kissing my face.
    What I find interesting is that this fox came with me home, where in waking life, home as family really needs working on, as there's not much support there between family memebers, and not real honesty.

    thank you again Gerard,
    I just read your response now, I will think about it more, and perhaps I should write my dreams in a diary, I have been doing it for a while and then abandoned it, i know some members of this forum use a diary.
