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 dream last night, seems light hearted at first yet there are symbols I don't know what they mean.
    I remember dreaming of an architectural/landscape project. In real life, I am finishing my architecture/landscape degree.
    Anyway in the dream I am looking at this newly designed garden with my uni friend. This garden or some parts of the garden seem to serve in memory of some dead person, perhaps influential to the services/facilities within the garden. I thought that because I looked at this cobblestone path, it seemed to have concrete mixed in or a layer of concrete, which seemed to also contain ashes of this dead person. The path may have had a thin layer of water flowing on top, and we were walking on the path admiring the surroundings.

    In the later part of the dream I seem to be involved in a singing and dancing classes/school, and we, the students are having some sort of exam, as we perform in front of the teachers.

    I would appreciate your help in getting to me about this dream, I am not sure what it means, there seem to be life/death symbols, and some lessons for me?

    thank you

    Re: ashes

    The added info about working toward your architecture/landscape degree may provide the answer to what your dream is addressing. Your 'dream' statement 'This garden or some parts of the garden seem to serve in memory of some dead person, perhaps influential to the services/facilities within the garden' may be addressing the old self, that part of you which is about to achieve a goal {degree}. That person, before the degree, will soon become a memory although the intrical parts of your person still remains {those aspects that give you strenght and discipline to achieve your intended goal of getting your degree}. This part of you has come to an eend {dead person}. In working toward your degree you have left bits of yourself, ashes, along the way. Unconsciously you are admiring your perserverence {thin layer of water}.

    The singing/dancing classes may represent your blissful self, working in a field {architecture/landscape} that benefits your heart and soul. This is your bliss, the thing in life you wish to be doing. Or it could be the ahievement itself, having the discipline to stay with it when it got tough. You exam may be your persererence.

    Does this fit? At the age of 26 dreams often reflect current waking life experiences and the emotional responses to them. You are in your garden when you are working with architecture/landscape. And the achievement of getting your degree, that may be a blissful event in itself.
