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.

    Sea horse

    Hi all,

    Last night before going to bed I asked my psyche for an inspiring dream, as I had a presentation this morning for one of my graduate programs and have some things I have to do for the other one and this is what I got:

    I live in a quiet and beautiful grassy town. I go outside and there are children playing in the street. I walk back up past the children and towards my new home where my husband and I live and there is a wide grassy area. I stop and look closely, not only does it evoke strong memories of my childhood backyard and how it bordered on our neighboors backyard's that we all as kids loved to play in, but it is also a much, much larger area, and beyond, it reaches to the sea...rather than more land.

    A large white and black horse emerges from this sea, and it comes towards me. I am so afraid of this horse. I run to the outside of me and my husband's home and lie in the grass. I began to laugh. The horse begins to laugh. Two neighboor girls come out of the house next door, they want to lie down in the grass with us as well but I do not want them to. I don't say no, but the horse raises a large human hand (?) and waves them away. Only I am privileged for this experience. After that my husband comes out of the house and we make love outside. (?)

    There were several other dreams I had right before this, one having to do with telling a friend who created a new product that he should market it in the front of the store. There was a fragment before that or another dream which I forgot.

    This dream was very different from my other ones. It had a sense of expansiveness, of space to breath, as well as of awesome power. I can't describe it, it was amazing.

    Would love your thoughts. And yesterday my husband told me he is working on buying us a that also could have some meaning relative to the dream somehow or vice versa.

    Thank you all,

    Re: Sea horse

    Hi may,
    if the sea represents the unconscious,the black and white horse could represent the yin yang dynamic,a symbol of the unified self,
    this coming out of the unconscious (the sea) into consciousness (the land )this aspect of your self,is in the process of becoming known or is inviting you to become more aquainted with it,
    you end up making love ,it is a mutual act in your dream, which suggests to me that you are or have achieved some sort of psychological balance,
    altogether positive progress.
    i may be off the mark,
    but many hands make light work.
    and i am sure others will input.
    regards steve.

    Re: Sea horse

    This seems to do with your own sexuality and intimate life. You see the house (a symbol for yourself)and look 'back' to your formative years and growing up.
    The environment is pleasant 'wide and grassy etc'.
    The sea represents the emotions. Water can be seen as a journey of the emotions sometimes ( from spring to the sea). This stage would suggest settled, mature emotions - the water has reached the sea.
    A black and white horse comes out of the sea - horses usually represent sexuality - here a mature, natural expression of sexuality and intimacy - you and your husband laugh - the horse laughs - the environment is pleasant and natural.
    Two young girls ( representing younger aspects of yourself - the stages of you growing up) want to join you - but this relationship is about your adult self.
    A large human hand waves them away - this relationship although natural ( horse) is also spiritual (moral and 'right' judgements and censors ae made).

    Overall, the dream is a reassuring reminder of your own maturing relationship with both yourself and you husband and a healthy intimate life - enjoy!

    A few thoughts...
    Your creative Bliss, the source being Nature or natural, from within. Awareness/uncovered in childhood.

    Re: Sea horse

    Hi Steve, Claire and Kathy,

    Thank you for your replies! Your interpretations are fabulous.

    I think for me definitely there is a psychological growth/balance that has/is taking place. Definitely the dream is a positive imagine and heading in a new direction. I like the ideas of returning to childhood with awareness, and positive aspects of myself emerging.

    I would like to take time to reread the responses and respond again, but in the meantime thanks for the great responses.
