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.

    Cats

    I had a very, very vivid dream last night about cats.
    In the dream there had been a natural disaster, a flood, and in the aftermath there were hundreds of dead cats left for dead on my property. I needed help to deal with all the dead cats left behind and a strange women showed up and gave me some pills and told me to throw them all around the dead cats. As I threw the pills around the cats, they all came back to life. Hundreds of cats came back to life and then alot of people showed up to help me take care of them. Strange as it sounds this dream was uplifting. Anybody have any thoughts on the meaning of the resurrected cats?

    Re: Cats

    Valerie,
    Cats normally symbolize the feminine aspects. Since these cats were left on your 'property' they are most likely represent aspects of your psyche. And since there are many dead cats there may be a real disturbance with these feminine aspects.

    The natural disaster may point to something natural about this affect on you. Death symbolizes an end of something. Bringing them back to life is to rejuvenate your feminine qualities. The pills may represent those things you take in that aid in the healing of these feminine qualities.

    What is it in your life has seemed to have come to an end and then is rejuvenated? It would have to do with feminine aspects, most likely those qualities you possess. Intuition is an important feminine quality. Have you set aside your inner intuitive voice and instead let subjectivity get in your way when making decisions? The flood could be a flood of emotions and the disaster an emotional disaster.

    Also look at taking the pills as a real event. Do you or have you recently taken pills to help with feminine problems? Perhaps these pills have put new life into your feminine self. Since it is 'uplifting' the pills {medications} could either represent something that provides a healing effect {look beyond just the pills to other possible events or things that may have helped heal this feminine side} or they could seem to help. Some part of your feminine self may have undergone a resurrection of sorts, the death and coming back to life of these cats.
