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.

    "I am in my grandfather's garden behind his house. The place I'm staying is fenced. I see an ugly, strange, leatherless animal which I can not name, at my left, out of the fence. On my right, not very far away, a croud of beasts (lions, pantheres, hyenas) are starving and waiting for fresh meat. I want to pass over that direction, and reach the end of the street but how can I do that? Then, someone (or I?) calls on the ugly animal, which starts to run. The beasts go after that animal, so the way is free for me to walk to the other side of the place, where other people are. The ugly animal was sacrificed for me."

    I don't know which part of me is being sacrificed or "eaten up" by other parts. But it seems obvious. Would appreciate your thoughts.

    Re: Animals

    You seem to have insights to the possibilities to this dream. Where does your grandfather's garden and house play a role in your life {if not purely a metaphorical description of your own psyche}. The fenced in part may indicate unconscious aspects that needs and wants to reach the end of the street {perhaps this street represents apst experiences that needs closure}. The strange, ugly animal would be a reason for that closure. What do you think it represents in your real waking life?

    We know from previous dreams you are dealing with anxiety problems because you did not receive the proper attention as a child, especially from my father. Does this have any relationship to the above dream?

    Unconsciously, and even perhaps now consciously, you are summonsing this ugly aspect away from its fenced in space within your psyche. There is a sacrifice to be made. There may be other troubling aspects that overcome this particular ugly one but they too can be beasts that must be reconcilled.

    Your thoughts and impressions of what the dream is addressing will help fill in the void {or provide new insights}. Hopefully some of the above will lend itself in helping you better understand the dream.
