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.

    Dreams with TALL Dogs

    I have a dog up in Brisbane (at the home of my parents) that I miss... we will see him over Christmas and I have been a bit home sick of late...

    I dreamt that Anna and I drove up to Brisbane (which is what is going to happen) and that as we got home, there were 2 tall dogs (that looked like my real dog, but that were as tall as I am) but no cosmo!!!!

    Anna and I went searching for this dog, however we came across two business colleagues down here in Sydney that said that they took him to the vet as he had cancer.... I couldn't understand this as I realised that they lived in a different location to my dog and that they couldn't possibly had known that my dog had cancer...

    All no doubt relating to the same theme....

    Hi Craigy

    Likely the same theme ,, there is another post on the Forum at present anout dogs and although it is from a woman it may help to look at the symbolism from the other side (as it is often easier to see / understand issues in others than in ourselves).

    If the dream represents both your inner and outer journey ,,,
    returning home would suggest that you are getting closer to who you really are, you are with Anna - there is / has been a growing closeness and understanding of the role of the feminine in you, as companion and council.
    So if the dogs represent the masculine ,,, and they are TALL ,, as tal as you - you are as big as them - this is the size of your manhood, your masculine ,,, it is equal to you, you are this tall.

    However - does someone else have your dog (your masculine); have you sold part of yourself over to the business part of your life to the material world ?
    Cancer is something that is anarchistic ,, it is uncontained and does not obey the rules of life, the rules that sustain life ,, it prapagated and spreads in a way that sucks the life out of the body and eventually the body dies

    Food for thought ,,,

    Craigy,
    We are still stuck on dogs are we? Steve points out the possible masculine aspects a dog can represent {cats are more feminine}. But of course we know that it is probably addressing deeper issues.

    Perhaps the two dogs that look like Cosmo {is it merely synchronistic that cosmos is representative of the whole?} represent the two aspects that are confronting who you are {Anna's faithful guy or the ladies man}. The true self has yet to be fully realized {no Cosmo} thus there seems to be a lot of work left in finding this part of you.

    The cancer. Perhaps your 'ladies man' affliction? And again the 'two' colleges. These are aspects of yourself in co-ordinated consultation trying to discover and help heal the inner self {took him to the vet}.

    Yes, the same theme. But there seems to be progress since the animal aspects are getting medical attention {vet in your dream}. Perhaps by realizing your 'ladies man' personality you are indeed aware of its power and are taking extra 'care' not to let it control your life. Of course the proof is in the 'puddin' {sexual connotations aside} and whether you remain true to Anna.

    Hey, hey, hey. We may be making progress. That is the real intent of the Dream Forum. To help others realize the true self and discover whatever it may be that is preventing them from living harmonious and happy lives.

    PS- I want to refer you to Tinkster dream where she seems to have had a less than nourishing childhood like yourself but is reacting to it in a somewhat different way. But before anyone begins to think I am picking on these two, let me state that almost everyone has some type of childhood issue{s} that need attention later in life.

    Cheers, it seems as if you are right!

    I am working very consciously on the aspects of these dreams, and haven't had a dream about it since this post - instead, I am dreaming of a white Xmas and poker!

    Re: Dreams with TALL Dogs

    from Tinkster's dream...

    "It turns out {at as least as I can determine} he is trying to replace that lost love never received in his childhood. He is looking for love in all the wrong places using sex as a substitute for the ungiven love earlier in life."

    Very loved earlier from everyone - parents, friends, parents of friends...

    That's not what I think it is, its just a higher than normal threshold for sexual things...

    Craigy,
    Dreams of poker. Now that opens up new doors. Poke her. And also are you gambling on something, hoping to win the big prize? The prize being winning that love you have been looking for in all the wrong places {unconsciously the love not received earlier in life}.
