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.

    sex and insects

    Hi, i was wondering if you had any insight into this dream?
    I dreamt i was initiating sex with my partner (which is strange because i dont normally initiate) He was not really into it (also strange because that rarely happens) when many bugs started flooding out of my mouth. Horrifying because am not a fan of bugs especially many at once.

    Re: sex and insects

    In the dream you and your partner are reversing roles. The "bugs started flooding out of my mouth" may suggest something that is unpalatable or difficult for you to accept. Your position of letting your partner initiate sex may be due to unconscious impressions and/or experiences of sex earlier in life preventing you from be able to initiate sex.

    On the other hand it may indicate a unconscious desire where you wish you could express yourself better when it comes to initiating sex. If this is the case then the unconscious barriers need to be recognized and confronted. Reasons for not being able to better communicate {mouth} these desires would also probably be from earlier life experiences that left negative impressions of sex.

    Have you and your partner discussed your initiating sex in recent days? There is also the possibility the bugs coming from your mouth may be addressing requests from your partner for oral sex.

    If you wish to comment on these possibilities please do so. Any additional information may help to better understand the dream images and the underlying message.

    Re: sex and insects


    In addition to Gerard's insights the following may apply. The dream could symbolize a role reversal in an empathic tone. You are your partner, he is you. Where your partner's attempts to initate sex are met with your disinterest and this bothers him. An unconscious perception or recognition this bothers him, perhaps he does not understand why. Yet neither of you can talk about it or know how to broach the subject. An emotional and physically intimate relationship calls for open dialogue but can be difficult as talking about sex, even in close relationships, is a social taboo.

    If you can respond with your thoughts perhaps we can look further into your dream.
