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.

    the no12 bus

    hi,
    i would be grateful for any comments on this dream,

    it has 3 distinct scenes,
    i am in a colledge,telling a female i think she is the one,after a heated exchange,she becomes ugly ,i realize she isn't the one at all,and i leave.

    i meet another female,i rest my head on her shoulder as we walk together,i realise she is not interested,
    i let her go,

    i find myself at a crossroads,a choice of left or right,i am looking for the no,12 bus stop,the whole street is full of bus stops,my intuition tells me to turn left,i do this and walk to the top of a hill,and arrive at the no 12 bus stop.
    as i am waiting,a female appears out of nowhere,i can see she is cold,she is only wearing a blue check cotton shirt,i put my arms around her to keep her warm,
    we are both waiting for the no 12 bus.

    i am not sure if this dream came out of my thoughts the other day ,on gerards comments ,
    looking for love in all the wrong places!

    i am struck with the emphasis on the number 12,
    so far i have found it to represent some sort of completion ,
    any insights much appreciated,
    regards steve.

    Re: the no12 bus

    Steve,
    The dream is probably in some way addressing the 'looking for love in all the wrong places' aspect. But the number 12 does seem to be important, perhaps beyond this one aspect. In the dream you have a choice of directions. Of course it is only natural you chose the left hand path {this is the hero path to adventure}. This may be confronting those aspects of the hero journey which always unresolved until it is completely resolved.

    As for the number 12. In a calender year 12 is the last month in completing the year. The fact we are indeed in the 12 month of 2006 may be relevant. But we may need to go beyond just the number and add it up, which would give us 3. In Jung's approach 3 is one less than 4, the number which represents wholeness, completion. Perhaps it signifies that you are almost there. The number 3 is 1/4 of 12. It is a riddle but does it have meaning?

    There are other numbers that can represent completion. I mentioned 4. The number 10 is often seen as the last number before starting over. And my favorite the number 9 {magic potion number 9}. But since we are in the 12 month of 2006 {2x6}, perhaps the end is near {2007 2+7=9}. And if we take the number 3 and multiply it by 9 we get 27, or 2007. My tea leaves have for some time pointed to 27 and I have witnessed the 3x9 symbol many times of recent. I believe 2007 will be a decisive year, in more ways than one. Again a puzzle to be solved using the Jungian brain?

    Steve,
    Oh yes. I almost forgot the bus. We can look to the dream dictionaries for advice to what this may suggest. But I have a habit of Googling and when you Google the number 12 bus what do you get first? Take a look to what pops up. If may fit since you are from England {and Kathy is from Ohio}.

    Re: Re: the no12 bus

    gerard,
    i think you are on the right track using the number 3 and 4 instead of 12,
    the dream was in three distinct parts,the fourth being the no12 bus when it arrives,(completion)
    the meeting with the female who needs warmth would suggest the present and the number 3,not complete yet,
    i can see the reference to the uniting of male and female elements,as the instigator for the next stage of the journey,namely the journey home,
    this is what i was aware of in the dream,
    the bus would take me home,
    now that could mean death actually,physically,
    or the death of the ego led life,
    i say this because i felt everything i had experienced in this dream prior to finding the female at the bus stop,was a mistake,mainly because it was what i thought i wanted,
    finding the bus stop and the female was via intuition,
    i believe i am being tutored here,in what knows best,
    something that i still have to learn to trust,
    took your advise and tried googling for a no 12 bus,
    made a cup of tea instead,now looking at the tea leaves,
    regards steve

    Re: the no12 bus

    Steve,
    If you find anything in your tea leaves that connect to the #12 bus in the UK, I'll be more surprised than you. And ask what you take with your tea? I thought it odd though that the first thing to show up when Googling was the story about UK's bus. Could that be sychronistic?

    gerard,
    yes the story of the bus on google was slightly interesting in its content,
    namely,that the word shit was on the rear of the bus,it was sent in by a colledge student,
    if it mirrors my dream content,prior to the arrival of the female and the bus, ie whats past is shit,
    then by comparison there may be an element of truth in it,
    i must appologize for the use of language,but thats how it is written,
    sychronicity has a habit of catching you of guard with a meaningful coincidence.
