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 difficult situation

    The Dream

    Someone I know (female) is the granddaughter of the president. She is in conflict with him and accuses him of sexual harrassment. He is also her boss.

    Real Life

    This person has hurt me a lot in the past, and is hard for me to deal with and is really, really getting under my skin to the point that I have been thinking of them daily and worried about all the hurtful things they do, to the point of it affecting my concentration, life, and studies. Talking to them is simply not an option, and would be dangerous and hurtful. Life requires that we interact.

    This person hates the government and probably the country that this president represented.

    I am not sure if this is a continuation of the same dream or a dream fragment but:

    I take a bus into a familiar (dreamscape) wilderness. I am supposed to be with my friends but thear not there. The bus driver at the destination tells me to wait and if they don't come I can go to the capital city of where I live.

    I don't know if that was the end of the first dream, I think they were two short dreams right in a row.

    This real life situation is causing me tremendous pain and angst and is really negatively affecting me. Part of my brain just tells me to just let go and stop even thinking about it or caring about the situation, because by worring about what this person is doing or not doing or might be doing to harm me directly or behind my back is actually becoming a self fullfilling prophecy and a form of self sabotage. This is a different person from the last dream I posted.

    I am so upset about this situation, and this is the first dream I've had about this person and I am so sad that it has gotten to me to the point that my own work is failing while they are succeeding. They have hurt me and said hurtful things so it feels like a double injury. So, I am very curious about the dreams. Sorry for the long post but the two dreams are extremely short.

    Thanks everyone,

    Re: A difficult situation

    Is this female in your dream the person causing you all the pain and anguish? It may be alluding to her and at the same time to yourself. That being letting yourself suffer from her actions. Her actions may represent power and control over your higher emotions {higher being those emotions that greatly affect your life}. This may put her in a position of being 'boss' over your emotions. The controlling aspect would represent the masculine,

    The second part of the dream may reflect a loss of identity with all aspects of who you are {ceding control of your emotions to this person who hurts you}. You are waiting to repossess these emotions so you can be at home with your true self {capital city}.

    It is hard to determine the exact reasons for these dreams but they are probably related to your waking life emotions and activities. I hope you can find a way to get past this part of your life before it completely overwhelms you. I do suggest a deeper examination of your life to determine why your emotional self is influenced by others but your situation sounds dire. Perhaps you need to seek out real 'friends' to help you deal with the situation. The dream could be suggesting that {waiting for friends}.

    Re: A difficult situation

    I gather from your post you are indecisive about how to remedy the situation, both externally with those that hurt you, and internally within the Self. And that the internal battle is most difficult of the two. I can only comment have a wonderful sense of who you are. Hold to your principles to heal the internal breech. Embrace your work and goals, persevere and in the end you will attain the achievement you seek.

    You already know I’m not an original thinker. So here are a few words from others that are…

    “Just trust yourself, then you will know how to live."
    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    “If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it. This you have the power to revoke."
    Marcus Aurelius

    and lastly-

    "When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it - always.”
    Mahatma Gandhi
