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.

    Baby and Snakes-disturbing

    Don't read if you are easily distrubed or Pregnant.

    I had a dream that I was at a friends house and her baby had a messy diaper. So she went to change it and it was full of black snakes that were coming out of the baby. And my friend just acted like it was normal. There were about 20-30 snakes that were moving and coming through the babys skin. My friend would just pull the snakes out and throw them out the window. After the diaper change-the dream was over.
    Any ideas?

    Trish,
    I get the impression this dream is dealing with certain attitudes you possess that have yet to fully mature. You may unconsciously {black snakes} not realize these aspects about yourself, aspects that may need changing but you keep ignoring. Instead you keep throwing away opportunities to make these changes. These attitudes are causing a 'messy' situation somewhere in your life.

    Another possibility is there is someone, a female, whose attitude causes stress for you and causes certain messy situations for you. You tend to ignore this person and her attitudes but until you change the relationship it will remain as it is.

    Look to see if there is a situation in your life that fits the above. Your response may help clarify the dream message.

    Thanks. That makes sense. And I didn't realize it until you said it. You are right and you seem like you know a lot about "inner" meaning.
    Thanks again
    I am sure that I will post again. (I have a lot of weird dreams)

    Re: Baby and Snakes-disturbing

    Trish,
    Thanks for your follow-up reply to my interpretation. Your response provides insights to those unrealized aspects of ourselves. And it is yet another verification that Jungian dream psychology has correctly mapped the psyche as no other has done.

    The one thing about dreams is they often provide us with aspects of our lives we may not realize. We tend to 'hide' unpleasant, undesirable, or neglected aspects of the self. Using Jung's guide to understanding dreams we are able to interpret those 'hidden' aspects. They are often 'hidden' because we choose to ignore them, they are repressed, we neglect them for one reason or another, or we simply don't understand the importance they represent in our waking condition. Although the ego self may be fooled by these 'hidden' aspect the unconscious Self is not. If it is 'true' the unconscious, through our dreams, will provide us with those truths no matter how the ego feels about it.

    As for my interpretation and how it {evidently} fits into your life. I've learned to read dreams {with Jung's tutelage} by concentrating on the whole motif of a dream. The individual symbols by themselves can often point in many directions. That can make little if any sense at all. But if the flow of the dream, using the symbols in the context of an emotional attitude or aspect of the dreamer, points to a certain possibility, a trained interpreter can usually assess that flow and come up with a viable motif. The verification comes when the dreamer has that ah ha! moment and realizes, 'that's it'!. It was there all the time.

    Of course it is imperative that one possess a strong intuitive sense. Since dreams are often thought of as psychic events it is only reasonable that the extra senses we possess have a better understanding of those aspects we would normally overlook.

    In the end it is incumbent on the dreamer to realize the significance of an interpretation. You evidently have a good grasp of your life and an awareness of the conditions in your life. That is a real positive for the future. It could make a difference in the decisions you make in life. As the saying goes, "most of the problems in life are of our own making'.
