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.

    a dream about a car dying

    I had a dream I was in a car and all of a sudden it started to die. I jumped out and right afterwards the tires blew out one by one and then this fluid (blood or gas or oil--I'm not sure) started gushing out and then it was dead and I could not even get inside of it again. The car was in some kind of mall or inside facility like a showroom.

    I don't understand how a car could die and was really confused in my dream.

    I was really frightened because I figured the car was a representation of myself.

    Re: a dream about a car dying

    Hi Carla

    welcome - it was a big thing for me to post on this sight and so I guess the dream must have really gotten your attention.
    well the first thing is that dreams are not about hurting us, rather they can provide us with insights and guidance that the conscious part of ourselves may overlook. In this wasy we can mindfully prepare / look at our options.

    In a way you are right, the car may represent you ,,, or rather your life, how you are moving throught your life ,,,, and less likely the physical you. When you scan your life is there anything that may 'stop you in it's tracks', or that has all the life out of it ? Could this be to do with some public aspect of you life ?

    What are your thoughts ?
    All the best

    Re: a dream about a car dying

    Hi Justin

    Thank you for your response to my dream. I have been thinking about what you said and on some level I wish it were about my body because if that car represented my life or an aspect of my life then to me it means some aspect of my life (my dreams, I believe) are dead and I can't go back to trying to pursuing them.

    I am battling an addiction and this problem is moving me far away from the life I imagine living. I hate sounding negative but it seems that the dream solidified my feeling that a certain future is dead to me now.

    Thanks again, I appreciate your help.

    Hi Clara

    thank you for replying and putting things in context.
    Firstly, with dreams, it is important to consider that the purpose of our dreams is never to hurt us - for me this is what I have seen over and over. If there is something in our waking life that we are not getting, or refusing to accept then the dreams try and get our attention ,,, and get more vivid, wild and even nightmarish. I think this is a big point ti consider ,,, and I recommend you spend some time on this ,,, can you flip your perspective to (even the possibility) that somewhere deep inside these dreams are there to help you - for you.

    Dreams ay be drawing our attention to how things are in our life now, or how things could turn out IF we continue as we are, or may be giving us another persective on something we already know - but another perspective that can help us understand more fully.
    Dreams tell it like it is - they are like a friend who will just tell you how it is, all the while wanting and waiting for you to do what you need to do.

    So your dream is not necessarily one of despair ,, could it be that the car / life you are walking away from is your life of addiction, that part of you wants to get back into ,,, or it could be recognising how the addiction has separated you from who you really are + the life you could be living. Representing the efforts you are putting in to getting back on board ,,,

    attend to your inner work, watch your dreams, start a dream journal,
    take care
