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.

    Help Wanted-Forum Contributors

    I have noticed a lot of new names at the Dream Forum who are providing their insights to posted dream requests. If you are interested in becoming a regular Forum contributor you are welcome to do so. There need only be a genuine interest in Jungian dream psyche and a desire to share your insights with others, with the deepest desire in helping others. Respect for others and their opinions must be shown at all times.

    For those who can give of their time, and who have begun {if not already well versed in Jung} an education in Jungian psyche, the status of 'Forum Contributor' is available if you will make regular contributions to the Forum. This can be down by providing your thoughts and insights to posted dreams. After a time of continuing contributions you can become a 'qualified' Forum Contributor. You will qualify for a page created in your name, that will be available FREE for all contributors. You will be listed as a 'Forum Contributor just as I, Kathy and Steve, anf have your name listed above, below the main title on this page.

    Here is the page created for Kathy.

    As the number of dream requests increase there will be a great need for new contributors to help with the task of providing interpretations. Myths-Dreams-Symbols has been on-line since 1998 and although the Forum serves as a resourse for those wishing to better understand their dreams, I have had to limited to some degree the effort given to expanding the Forum because I know the demand for dream requests will be overwhelming. This can be solved if there are enough Forum Contributors to give interpretations. If there are a lot of 0's next to dream requests then the purpose of the Forum is deluted and becomes inaffective. I would rather not have the Forum if requests can not be answered, and answered by informed 'Jungians'.

    To Become A Forum Contributor
    If you wish to become a Forum Contributor please make a reply to this post with your request. I will contact you with further information.

    Re: Help Wanted-Forum Contributors

    At the moment, I post personal replies in the mindset of helping give a second opinion or communion with the dreamers request, but that this is only my own personal take on things and my working life offen means I cannot read up on things as much as I'd like.

    Personally, I feel I am too 'selfish' at the moment to be totally objective or to be confident that I am being totally objective? In this, I dont mean a selfish attitude of not caring about others ( although Im sure this is all too apparent in my shadow too too) but of sometimes being too self absorbed, simply because of the work that needs to be done on me, and that if I do not do, leaves me open and vunerable and looking to the past rather than the future.

    Claire,
    Your honesty is refreshing. And you are being objective. Both are essential when dissecting dreams. Being able to detach oneself from personal views is most desirable when attempting to ascertain what anothers life may be. The house in another's dream is not your house. Once you get away from that notion you have taken a big step in 'reading' dreams.

    There is a real difference between interpreting a dream and in reading a dream. Those who possess an intuitive aspect that allows them to look at dream from all angles will develop an ability to read dreams. I believe you are well on your way in being able to do just that.
