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.

    Had a nightmare where I was going by a hall closet I got sucked in. The door closed and I bang on the door and screamed for someone to help, and I felt so much dear I can't tell whether I was shaking in my dream or in real life.

    what does this dream psycologically mean?

    Re: Nightmare

    Closets are places where you store things to keep them out of sight. What you need to do is determine what things in your life you wish to keep out of sights, either from others or even yourself. Deep down you are asking for help. This may involve deep emotional issues. Or at your age, it could be something less traumatic and have to do with development of ego or persona.

    Also, there is the possibility you are feeling closed in by something in your life. There may be pressures that are 'sucking' you in, making you feel closed in by what may be something that is not what you want to do.

    What has your life been like up this time? Has there been any emotional experiences that you may have stored out of sight, in your unconscious mind?

    Re: Nightmare

    From what you have said theres two main explanations for the nightmare that my subconscious is trying to tell me. A. I'm hiding something or B. I probably feel a loss of control. Its most likely B, I do feel a lack of control, and a huge uncertainity about my future... but interestingly when I have dreams where Im in a dark zone like in a closet or being under a dark table.... I shake while the dream. After the specific nightmare i had a dream (mightve been sleep walking) where I went to a different familiar closet taunting the "thing" that mightve drawn me in the first place. In a previous dream I went under a dark table in dark living room and I began to shake with fear.... and I had the dream over and over again. Eventually during the dream after I would shake I would laugh outloud and mock whatever was trying to scare me under the table..... what is difficult to explain is nothing was under the table with me.... it was going under the dark table all alone that made me scared...

    this is probably confusing as anything but I hope you can help.
