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.

    how quickly or not do animus/anima figures change?

    If there is only one animus (for a female dreamer) and one anima ( for a male dreamer) then why does he/she keep appearing in different guises?
    I know the relationship/integration changes and fluxes but surely NOT this quickly?

    Over the last couple of months, for example (if I were to look back at some of my postings on this site)
    my animus has appeared as angel, helper, male friend, unrequited lover,husband to be, etc?

    Re: how quickly or not do animus/anima figures change?

    hi,
    the anima/animus isn't one thing,
    i like the idea that it is a vehicle for an energy,
    albeit masculine for the animus and feminine for the anima,
    these figures lets call them ,turn up in other guises in dreams,the anima for instance,
    can turn up as valleys,cups,caves,gardens,downward pointing triangle, anything that holds a feminine quality to it,aswell as the obvious figure of the female,of which she will be carrying a certain quality,an energy.
    the animus,the masculine can be represented by anything that pierces,swords,spears,spires,mountains,
    upward pointing triangle etc,
    so i think it isn't a matter of having one animus or anima,more that they are an aspect of the masculine feminine principal,in whatever guise is needed to get a point across.
    identifying these aspects in dreams ,especially in the landscape of a dream is of great benefit to interpretation,
    this is how expain it to myself,others may see different,

    Re: how quickly or not do animus/anima figures change?

    Hi Steve

    Yes I understand and agree with your interpretation and am also familiar with male/female, animus/anima symbolism. I realise the anima/animus represent itself in many ways and is not 'one thing'.

    I think I was more concerned with how quickly and in how many different ways my anima had 'shown' itself within the space of the last few months?

    I think this maybe because there is a lot of change within my waking life as well at present and I have devoted more time to psyche/self work?
    Maybe, maybe not - the more I learn the more I am convinced I know very little!

    hi claire,
    i think the important thing is not how many times the animus changes and how quickly,but how it is developing,how does it differ from the last time it appeared and in what respect,
    i agree with you whole heartedly,
    for me its like the first day at school,
    a rollercoaster ride if ever there was one.
