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.

    What is this?

    I had a dream last night that the type of spider used in arachnaphobia was in a partially unpeeled banana. At first look the banana just had legs, then it was spitting things out of the open end, then I realized that the spiders body was actually in the banana and the spider was biting off pieces of the banana and spitting them out immediately. The whole time it was running around fairly fast and in many different directions. They say a spider is a threat and represents fear of being tangled in a web, and a banana is a falic symbol, but this seems as if the threat is endangering the banana rather than the banana being the threat, what do you think?

    Hi Kristin

    Unravelling this dream may take some further thought from you but I will offer what I can
    The image of something spitting out of a banana does seem very phallic and brings to mind a male's ejaculation, being partially unpeeled would also fit (uncircumcised).
    The issue then is the spider in the banana. Did you mean that the type of spider was the same type as used in the treatement of arachnophobia ? or the same type of spider that people are afraid of if they have arachnophobia ?
    Either was this is linked to a 'phobia' or intense dislike of some kind ,,, I can only give some prompters ,,, you will need to mull them over for yourself.
    What is you attitude to men ? to sex ? to men and sex ?

    That the spider was hidden in the spider, the answer may not be so easy to see.
    Also having anything spat at us is not nice ,,, what is the source of this ?

    Hope this provides some start, your feedback would be really appreciated
    All the best
