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.

    My Boyfriends Dream

    Hello.

    This was a dream my boyfriend had, which kind of concerned me.

    He was a prisoner, but he doesn't know why, and he was out in the yard playing with a pink ball with some other guys. The ball went over the fence, and landed near this place of business. He didn't want the guards to go get the ball because they would lose it, so he had to sneak over the fence to get it. He said that he first climbed over the fence, and that he had to stay hidden otherwise they would think he was trying to escape, then was climbing along a rocky ridge, like the one's they have in zoo's, the fake one's. He said that there was a river below and he had to walk across it, and then when he got to the parking lot the guard was there. He said he hopped back in the river really quick because he wanted the guard to think that he had just gotten wet, so that he wouldn't know he was wet already. Then he pointed out the pink ball for the guard to see.

    Then they went to a resturaunt, and there was a train crash outside of it. He said that nobody was concerned for the people and he couldn't find any dead bodies, and he was confused by that. Then someone told him the train didn't really derail, it was just stopped to fix the engine. He had noticed a carriage full of people was going to Hogwarts and then he woke up.

    What do you make of this dream? Thanks,
    Tink

    Hi Tinkster,
    I've looked at this dream a couple of times and I almost believe I see a pattern or patterns. But I still lack cohesion that puts it all together. If I can let me ask a coupe of questions.

    How old your boyfriend?
    and
    Is he introverted type or extroverted, serious or outgoing?

    I'll try to come up with something more definite soon.
    Thanks,

    Gerard

    Re: My Boyfriends Dream

    Hi. :)

    He is 28 and he is extroverted with the right people and the right amount of alcohol.

    Generally he keeps his feelings inside, and he is very defensive. He feels like he is being attacked with every statement I make. He is very protective of me as well.

    It's a funny mix.

    Re: My Boyfriends Dream

    Tinkster,
    Thanks. This added information re-inforces my original impressions from the dream but not knowing for sure his age {I suspected he would be in his 20s since you are 22} I wanted to hold off with a final assessment. Anyone whose age is under 30 I give more attention to the outward possibilities {recent waking life experiences} more so than the inward possibilities {unconscious motivations, reflection of past experiences, etc}. With those over 40 I tend to do the opposite since at mid-life dreams are reflective as much as they are directed to current waking experiences {even though often both are addressed in a dream}.

    My first impression of the dream was he is holding something in. Knowing how his character from the described interaction with you supports that pattern. This shows him in real life, and compliments the symbols in his dreams.

    Balls are round which often symbolizes the true emotional self, which translates into needing/wanting to express/acknowledge something emotional about himself or his life.

    The guards in his dream may represent the ego self , counter the dream self which is unbiased, that will try to foil any attempt to reconcile internal conflicts {selfishness/incapacities}. Unconsciously, and perhaps subconsciously, he is aware of why he acts as he does, but conscioulsy he won't/can't control it.

    Often the roots of inner turmoil is childhood related. The train wreck probably reflects his life in many ways and he probably is having self doubts. Depression wouldn't eb unusual but it may not be apparent, if hge tends to hold his feling in. That may be why he lashes out at you. It is about his own inner conflicts, projected on others. If is from earlier experiences in life then the problem may be deep seeded.

    Does he tend to make excuses about various things? Hogwarts is a fantasy world, another sign of possible deeper issues. He probably feels caged in {zoo and prison}about something in his waking life {have the two of you had discussions about the relationship and where it is going-or does he avoid the subject?} as well as unconsciously {deeper issues}.

    If you can expound on my comments perhaps we will be able to get to a good understanding of tghis dream. I believe we are close to that already.

    Re: My Boyfriends Dream

    Hi.

    That sounds very accurate to him.

    I read this to him and he says "but it was a good dream. I was having fun playing with the ball with two other guys and some "jackass" threw it into the water" so he seemed surprised by the interpretation.

    Personally I think it sums him up well, although he did have a wonderful childhood he does have a few cobwebs in the attick.

    Thanks again,
    Tink
