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.

    Random Sex Dreams

    I was just wondering about sex dreams. I have about 3 a week. Random ones. Some are with my husband. Some are with women. Some are with myself (like I am the man having sex with me). Some are me just trying to sneak around and have an affair but it never happens. Some are me trying to convince my gay guy friends to have sex with me just because I need to get laid. And some are with animals. Some are with my friends, my girl friends. Some are in wierd places like the middle of a store, where everyone can see. Or other public places. And some sex dreams are of me with food.
    They all seem very random. But my husband thinks that I need to go see someone about them or that I am a sex addict.
    I don't know.
    I do have a great sex life with my husband and we have been together 10 years and happy.
    If you need more info about any of the dreams listed above please let me know.
    I just always figured that I was creative. I don't know.
    Also, if anyone has weird sex dreams like me please share.
    thanks

    Re: Random Sex Dreams

    Trish,
    There is most definitely an element of Freudian symbolism in your dreams. That is not wholly uncommon or unnatural {more often we see it in men's dreams}. The dream may be focusing on how liberated of a woman you are when it comes to your sex life. Your follow-up post gives cause to believe that is the case.

    Is sex an important aspect of the relationship, what most may find beyond the norm {how many times do couples actually have sex during the week}? Is it you have dreams of sex 3 times a week or a real desire for sex 3 times a week {or more}? There may even be desires for exploration of your sexual self.
    That altogether is not unnatural either. Those things that preoccupy our waking hours are the focus of our dreams at night. An overactive libido may cause certain conflicts and dreams will reflect that. What you can't fully work through when awake, your dreams will help you do so while you sleep.

    There are other possibilities to consider as to the reasons for your sex dreams but they would most likely be secondary {dreams usually address more than one aspect}. The interactions in your dreams with different people of different sexes and different sexual preferences suggests for me you are dealing with issues involving many aspects within yourself. These people could represent those aspects. In dreams of sex your partner{s} may symbolize some part of your own psyche, for example, your anima if you are a male, or your animus if your are a female {or in your case both}. The reason for this mat be that you are searching for that true self, that thing in life that provides the soul's desire. Things come together, trying different approaches, sex in dreams can represent these aspects as well. Physically you parlayed into a more active sexual being but on the inside you may be searching for something deeper.

    You mentioned creativity. Is that creativity with sex or is that creativity 'muse' wise? Joseph Campbell says that sex and love come from the same chakra level. Creativity can be expressed in the same terms as love. It is the a true express of Self. You may be seeking that deeper creative Self, a joining of all aspects that a creative person would desire to possess {sex with men, women, straights, gays, etc.}.

    Your thoughts on my response may help clarify these sex dreams. Looking back at your 'Baby and Snakes-disturbing' I can begin to understand the messy situation these dreams, and attitudes, may cause. The black snake could very well be a Freudian symbol for the penis. Ways of changing the 'messy situation' may be on your mind, and in your dreams.

    Re: Random Sex Dreams

    Wow, this is my new favorite site. I love being able to share my dreams and not feel judged. I am still confused--am I sexually frustrated? I do have sex serveral times a week with my husband. I never tell him "No" because I know that if I am not in the mood--I will be as soon as we get started. I don't have any problems with not climaxing. I have always found that to be easier than most women. (at least compared to my friends).
    But what I don't understand is that I have weird dreams about people that I KNOW I am not seeking approval from.
    For example: I had a dream that I was fingering Queen Latifa. (And I have NO feelings towards her-believe me) I am a small skinny blonde girl.
    Another example: I had a dream that I was camping with friends and a beaver kidnapped me and was trying to drag me back to his damn because he loved me.
    Any Ideas?
    Oh, and I have way more dreams to evaluate if you need them.
    Thanks
    I am sure that I will add more dreams later but I just don't want to overwhelm you right now.
    Thanks again

    Re: Random Sex Dreams

    Trish,
    The people in your dream that you seek approval of represent aspects of your own psyche. You use these people because you identify with some aspect they possess. You are not seeking approval from them but from yourself. It may be that because you do have a high sexual appetite you feel there is something wrong with that {there may be reasons for your sexual appetite but as long as it doesn't cause unreasonable conflicts in your life there is no reason to believe there is a problem with it} and there is a need of approval from yourself.

    The beaver is most likely a analogy for a woman's genitals. Perhaps you feel that your sexual libido has kidnapped you. Because you do have a high sexual appetite you may feel there is something abnormal about it {most women would luv to be your position-especially when it comes to orgasims}. Abnormal, no. Unusual, perhaps.

    As for judging. The contributors look at everyone without prejudice. One of Jung's more contraversial philosophies is we all possess a spiritual {different from religious} aspect. In that light we at the Dream Forum do not judge people. Our desire is to help and inform. We all are equal and at the Forum respect and acceptance is given to everyone.

    You are welcome to post any dream{s} you wish. Hopefully you will look deeper into the pages at Myths-Dreams-Symbols or Dreams A 2 Z and find tools that will be helpful in your personal growth. Dreams help you better understand yourself and why you are who you are. We hope to help everyone in that endeavor.
