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.

    Civil War heavy Symbolism

    There was a civil war going on between the union and the confederacy . I was in the middle and was on the union side. It was outside. I got scared for a bit and ran into the woods with a comrade, I believe I male I can't remember, as I was walking through the woods a wolf jumped out and bit my arm and I shook it off. It ran away. I decided it was time to go back to the war with my comrade. On the way back we crossed over a bridge into a cemetery. There were a lot of graves and one in particular was surrounded by wolves. They were circling it. My comrade was afraid and I said I could handle it. I took out my cell phone and put on the flash for taking pictures and flashed it at the wolf, leaving one of the wolfs dazed and confused. I walked on back to the war, which was now smaller and in a sears like store. The side were smaller as well. The war was still going on strong though and an announcer let be known that '1000' had just died. I ran away from the war again because bullets were flying everywhere at me. As I walked through the store I saw a man , Indian I believe playing with his child, they were playing with a rubber ball. As I continued walking I saw two girls sweeping and cleaning the store with the civil war going on in the background. They were attractive to me. Finally an old women came and sole me a puzzle in a plastic bag that once complete become a necklace. The dream ended then.

    Any thoughts and help on this would be greatly appreciated. I already have a lot of ideas but there is a lot going on here and well Thanks for any help all!

    Re: Civil War heavy Symbolism

    Joel,
    Wars in dreams are often a result of conflicts within the dreamer's life. Your particular war involving Union and Confederates may be from an interest in Civil War history or was stimulated by some encounter with the subject prior to the dream.

    The symbolism of the wolf may say a lot about your dream. Look to the Dream Dictionaries to determine which if any may fit into your life.

    At the end of the dream there is a focus on the feminine aspects. Perhaps this says something about your masculine attitudes. They may need to be 'cleaned' up, getting away from certain conflicts in life and choosing a less confrontation role in your actions and/or decisions.

    Let me know your ideas about the dream. It seems to be more of a personal type dream and only you can accurately determine what that might be.

    Re: Civil War heavy Symbolism

    I feel the wolf has something to do with irrational fears in my life. I have been going to therapy and really trying to change and have noticed a lot of positive changes already. Walking across the bridge to the cemetery signifies to me the fact of crossing over to new change. To finish this new change I need to lay to rest these old issues in the graveyard. The wolves are circling the one particular grave because thats what needs to be laid to rest. Flashing them with the light from my cell phone is me bringing awareness to these old issues and it leaves them confused, allowing me to put things to rest or start to. The civil war is the conflict in my mind. The number 1000 I think signifies new wholeness. The women selling me the puzzle is telling me that perhaps I am trying to figure myself out and when done a jewel will be mine. Just my thoughts...But any other perspectives could help.
