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.

    Maria,
    Your dream doesn't mean you are going to die. Dreams speak in symbols and metaphors {a word or phrase that ordinarily designates one thing is used to designate another}. What the dream symbols are addressing in your dream are those emotional conflicts you are experiencing in your waking life.

    It is difficult to understand some dreams and yours is not an easy one. Perhaps the dream is addressing your personality and how others think and feel about you. Or at least how you think they feel about you. The sickness, the 'its geeting really ugly', and teeth falling out {teeth falling out often sybolizes concerns about ones appearance} lead me to believe this is what the dream may be addressing. Death or dying in a dream often symbolizes a desire to change things in your life. At 18 you are probably caught up in love interests with boys. There may be a fear on your part of being accepted by guys. Perhaps you think your appearance is not as good as you wish it could be.

    Parts of the dream may be getting into deeper emotional conflicts having to do with earlier experiences in life. These usually deal with traumatic {bad} experiences that leave a mark on your unconscious mind. There would need to be more info about your personal life to determine what that might be.

    The one thing you do need to understand is the dream is not addressing your death. It is addressing a desire to change something about you or your life. So rest assured that there is no need to fear about dying.

    Hi Maria,

    The dream may also be addressing a rite of passage from child to adult. This is a form of psychological death, dying to the old, reborn to the new. With this come fears of being on your own and fully responsible for your self no longer protected by parents and under parental control. For some this new freedom is treated with respect and adult decisions. For others it's merely a continuation of child behaviour without the adult supervision. Perhaps you are in that in between stage, not yet on your own but nearing that time.

    The young man could represent adult temptations that await your newfound adult freedom of choice. The potion that rite of passage to adulthood. Becoming a 'zombie' symbolizing the guilt or punishment reflex of your inner higher authority or learned religion. Your mother 'okay maria, just finish dying' could represent a duality of opposites. Both encouraging you to move into adulthood to accept adult responsbility and perhaps unconsciously wishing you to remain a child (pushing you back).

    The vision you saw on waking, the dwarf, is not uncommon. I have experienced these types visions on several occasions. It's scientific name is Hypnopompia. This includes visions of lights, people, shadows, impending sense of doom or death, etc. the list of sensations is long. To read more about this click the link below.

    Please respond with your thoughts about the dream and interpretations. With your input we can likely figure out the dream meaning.
