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.

    Moving into dead Grandparents home (torn down)

    I've had this dream 4 times now and it's always the same. I am cleaning out cupboards and closets in my Grandparents home so I can move my stuff in. I'm sorting their things by "keep" or "throw-away". The weird thing is that they have both passed and the house was torn down 20 years ago. Everything was sold to help pay for my Grandfather's Alzheimers care before he passed 5 years ago. The property that their house sat on is still part of my Mother's farm. What can this mean??

    Re: Moving into dead Grandparents home (torn down)

    the fact the dream is reccuring suggests unresolved issues,
    the farm could be a metaphor for yourself,
    as you stated,that an area of this property was still occupied ,
    this suggested to me that an area of your own life is still domintated by maybe, the memories of the relationship with your grandparents or even your mother,as it was her place,
    the clearing out of the cupboards would then suggest exactly that,
    maybe its time to have a clear out, of things you are holding onto from this time in your life,that are impeding your progress somehow ,
    you were in the process within the dream of reclaiming your space,does this suggest anything,
    i hope this is of use,
    regards steve.

    Re: Moving into dead Grandparents home (torn down)

    Cleaning out cupboards and closets often represents cleaning out old emotional experiences accumulated over the years. These are places we put things away, out of sight. Often we forget, or even repress certain experiences but they are stored in the unconscious. Your Grandparents home may allude to experiences from that period of time. Or they may merely represent those 'old' experiences. At 39 you are at the beginning of the mid-life thing {sorry, but it is true}. This time of life often brings about reflecting on the past. 'Meaning' becomes important, why is your life the way it is?

    You may want to revisit those years {20 years ago} to see if there are any remarkable experiences that need your attention. Plus you may want to look back to when these dreams started and see if there was a particular stimulus that brought them on. Have those earlier years been discussed or thought of prior to your dreams? What is it in the cupboards and closets that need to let out and examined? They may be happy events. More often they are traumatic experiences that have become a part of the building blocks that make up who you are and how you act as an adult.
