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.

    another damn spider

    Well in this one the spider dosnt try get into my mouth, but the exact same spider is walking on the wall that is facing my bed and I am lying there, feels like I am actually awake and not dreaming... watching this spider walk, as it walks though with every step the spider gets bigger and bigger... and I went from being scared watching this thing to one second not being scared...feeling changed every second. It felt like the spider was watching me... which made me not so scared.. But I am petrified of spiders. I have a thatch roof in my room and it started walking on the thatch and I couldnt see it anymore...but it felt like i was dissapointed that I couldnt see it. This dream has confused me alot.. expecially all the feelings that I felt. I dont Know what to make of it. For some reason, I dream alot about spiders....And I have been since I was small, But they always seem to have the most meaning as they stay on my mind.

    Re: another damn spider

    Your spider dreams are probably addressing your fear of spiders and also addressing something else. Walls are often barriers and the fact you seem to be awake and asleep and dreaming may allude to your fear of actual of spiders. The walls would be the barrier of getting past your fears.

    But then there is the calming affect the spider has on you as it watches you. Spiders can be symbolic of the feminine power. The thatched roof could represent thought or understanding the power the feminine possesses {being female you may be confronted with how to manage or accept your inner feminine powers}. In your dream you are disappointed when you could not see the spider.

    The dream could very well be about your fears of spiders and even a wish to accept the spider without fear. But I would give serious consideration to the feminine aspects, something about the power of the feminine. It could even represent a actual female who you see as powerful and accepting, and when out of sight you are disappointed.
    What are your ideas about your feminine aspects? Do you utilize them or are you are afraid to do so in a manner that would empower you?
