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.

    Re: pregnancy

    It is hard to pin down exactly waht this dreams is speaking to. Perhaps a little more info about the dream {is there more to it?} will help clarify the dream message. Also look at the following suggestions and let me know if any it fits. A follow-up post may help in determining more about the dream.

    Pregnancy often symbolizes new expectations or something new is capable of developing in your life. It may also represent some aspect of your life that is developing and growing. The 7 months may represent a time frame conforming to your waking life, either the past or the future. If you look at your waking life and determine where the 7 may fit it probably will also fit with the dream message {has there been changes in your life in the past 7 months or are you 'expecting' something in the next 7 months? Or the 7 may represent something else related to this 'pregnancy'.

    The pregnant friend probably represents a part of you that is developing or growing, perhaps a new aspect in your life. Since you can feel the baby it may suggest this event is an emotional aspect that you are dealing with. The 7 months may allude to something close to happening {a normal pregnancy lasts 9 months}.

    As for the horse in the bathroom. And the dog. All 3 can represent instincts, or instinctual urges. Since the dream is addressing a pregnany {of course not a real one] then there may be a sexual aspect to the dream. Perhaps since you are not capable of getting pregnant it lets you be more free to indulge in your sex life. Since you do not wish to have more children, this horse may be that 'strong' physical' desire in your sex life. You have eliminated {bathroom} the obstacles in your life that get in the way of sexual freedom {wild horses run free}. The instinctual urges {sex is probably the greatest physical urge} represented by the pet dog suggest it is something you feel good about.

    On the other hand the horse in the bathroom may represent repressed instinctual urges that have been eliminated. Bathrooms often represent a need or desire 'to get something out' or eliminate something in your life. Perhaps your sex life is less than what you wish it to be, it has been all but eliminated in your life.

    I would consider menopause as a possibility but you are still very young for that to happen. Unless the sterilization has altered that. Mood swings may add to that possibility. That would also fit with the bathroom, perhaps a desire to eliminate such mood swings.

    Look at your life and see which if any of the above may fit. Let me know your thoughts and perhaps we can pin down what the dream is trying to communicate about you and your life.
