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.

    brain-eating visitor

    I had this dream early in the night while I was just falling asleep. I woke up frightened.

    A woman/ghost/spirit/zombie with long dark hair comes through my window to visit me on occasion. Everytime she comes, I feed her some brains (I'm not sure whose) that I have on a plate. This is usually enough to satisfy her so that she can speak with me without becoming violent towards me. But this time, it is not enough and she wants to eat my brain. She is frightening and I run out of the room to ask if I can stay with my mother because I am so scared. She says I can.

    Note: I have long brown hair and now that I think of it, she was my same height and I believe she was wearing a long white gown of some sort. She came straight through my window and it was as if I expected her visit and had the "food" ready for her.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: brain-eating visitor

    ghosts and spirits visiting could be repressed experiences,usually negative in content,that require your attention,then they will go away,
    it is natural to be slightly alarmed when such dreams carry this kind of symbolism,
    but there is nothing to be afraid of,
    the feeding of the brains,
    this could be a ref to , a particular issue that may be draining you of energy(mental),

    i noticed a similarity to a vampire visiting,

    you give just enough to stay unharmed,
    its almost like a bribe,
    are you in a situation , where this would make sense?
    these are just my initial thoughts,
    feedback is always of great importance,
    as it allows us to move forward,
    if we are off the mark.
    hope this helps,
    regards steve

    Re: Re: brain-eating visitor

    Thank you so much for your reply. I´m sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. I´ve been working a lot lately and haven't had much time. I´ve been thinking about what you wrote. I don't know, there are many things going on in my life right now.

    But now that I think about it, this ghost/ is like my shadow, she is dark, scary, violent. I'm not sure why I welcome her in if she is so scary. It is as if I enjoy talking to her or she imparts some knowledge to me. I actually wait for her with the plate in hand at night. It is like my creative spirit, I give just enough to stay safe so that I can still talk to her, I give just enough to that creative side to have it in my life, yet I still stay safe in my room, unharmed, not risking anything, really. But has the time come to welcome it completely? I have remained safe, untouched, for far too long. I guess she is my dark muse.

    This is something I wrote trying to figure her out, speaking from her perspective: "I am a ghost, a specter, a zombie an evil twin. I bring knowledge and I am not evil intrinsically, I cannot help wanting, needing my special sustenance- raw brains, that food, not for the intellectual, for the ghost, but for the strong spirit, muse. I love the feel of them in my mouth and you bring me a plate small, yet just enough to tide me over for our conversation. You feed me every night when I come to speak to you and I enjoy talking to you. I am dark, sinister, yet I have something you need. My white flowing gown and long dark hair, I could almost be your dark twin, your other. I impart my knowledge to you. I feed you in return. It is not a one-way gift. We share our sustenance. You feed me and I feed you what you need. But only late at night when all are asleep in the darkness of your safe room, I come through your window. I don´t climb really, I almost pass right through. Where do I come from? What am I to you? I am your dark twin. I come from outside while you are shut up in there, your small dark room always locked in. You lock yourself safe in your small self and don´t venture out to Become. You are safe and that is all you will ever be if you don´t venture out like I do. Maybe that is why the brains on your carefully prepared plate will not suffice any longer. I want to devour yours. So that you will stop thinking so much and just surrender. Now it is your turn to go out and gather the knowledge for yourself. You can´t hide safe in your mother´s arms. It is your time to venture out, to risk, despite the fear."

    That is always how I´ve been regarding my pursuits, my creative, my intellectual, I always give just enough to stay in it, to keep one foot in the door, yet not enough to completely surrender or make a commitment. That is why I seem to never advance far enough, to achieve. I seem to go around in circles. I don't know, maybe I do think too much about failure or past experiences and now I simply need to surrender and give my all to what I am doing, believe in myself and move forward.

    Thank you so much for your comments, which were the springboard for this deep analysis. I am no longer scared of that dark spirit; next time I will welcome her.

    Re: Re: Re: brain-eating visitor

    hi sana,
    as you have quite rightly stated,
    the integration/acceptance of our shaddow aspects are an important step in the right direction towards wholeness,you are aware of yours,which is good,
    i am reminded of joseph campbells words on the two aspects of the buddha,
    which if you mirror your dream in its imagery ,it sort of makes sense,
    if the buddha wants to open you,
    and you are clinging to your ego and its little world,
    the wrathful aspect comes,it seems terrible,
    but if you are open ,and open enough,
    the same is experienced as bliss,
    i know this is talking of a higher level ,
    but i think it is also true of our meetings
    with inner content,especially shaddow aspects,
    albeit on a more mundane level,
    what is true above,so below.

    regards steve
