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.

    Dead friend

    I dreamt about my bestfriend who died last year. In the dream it was 2 days before christmas(she actually died on boxing day)In the dream i was trying to get her to the hospital because i knew she was going to die in 2 days. Kind of like i got a second chance. We were both crying and told each other how much we missed each other. Very vivid but i kept encountering obsticles when i tried to help her. ie the phone would not work when i dialed 911 What does this mean?

    Re: Dead friend

    Cathy,
    This dream may be addressing two aspects. One is the lingering emotions surrounding your friend's death. I know from personal experience we often wish we could do some things over, get a second chance when it comes to relationships. Being so close to Christmas the emotions over her passing are renewed. The obstacles you encounter in the dream may be your emotions. The hospital may indicate there is a need for more time in your healing process.

    The second possible reason for your dream may be addressing some current issue in your waking life where certain obstacles prevented you from changing something in your life. You may wish you had a second chance. The two days be important here also. This lost chance may be about something you miss now.

    Look to the first possibility as the most likely explanation to this dream. But also look to see if there are other issues in your present life that may fit. Second chances may be a clue as is the two Days {although the two days may be another reference to second chances}.
