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.

    searching for glasses

    I was arranging for someone to come and visit me (
    following a late night conversation, last night prior to the dream, where a friend is coming to see me in the New year) but in the dream it was Gerard from this site, for some reason. I was looking at different B & Bs/hotels/places for them to stay in the area.
    In the dream, I was dressed quite mystically, with a long dress/clock? lots of silver bracelets and then a large special gemstone bracelet on my left arm, possibly rose quartz, I'm not sure, as paid attenion to the 'adding' of this bracelet onto my arm, rather than its manufacture. There were other people around looking at the place/having lunch etc, but I was different from them, in a kind of mystical/mythological kind of way and felt proud of who I was.
    I remember having an argument with an older lady, sitting with a younger lady (her daughter)in the outdoor lunch/restaurant area of th B & B, although the youmger woman was a suggestion and didn't figure highly in the dream. The argument ended up with me taking the woman's glasses and throwing them somewhere on the ground. She did the same with mine ( at least I think so but didn't see this until I realised mine were missing too later). I asked her where they were -ended up looking on the ground everywhere for the glasses. I found hers eventually, but couldn't find my own. I found a pair of earrings of mine on the ground - colourful plastic rectangular shapes with a star attached (which I don't own in waking life) and left them on the ground.

    Re: searching for glasses

    Claire,
    Hopefully the outcome of this dream is purely positive. I would hate to be part of your dream and represent a negative.

    The mystical aspect of the dream could very well come from your experiences with Myths-Dreams-Symbols {the dark background, the woman looking into her crystal ball, the expanding page when you click on the dot}. And the clock. Have you viewed my new page on Posted Dreams & Their Interpretations at Dreams A2Z? That clock may be your clock.

    You are different from most people. You consult your dreams. And you are in the process of becoming different from those other aspects that once governed your actions. You are in the realm of the mystical world of dreams. The myth is your myth. Giving proper time to your myth should make you proud. So few people are capable of doing so. They live in a world of perceived reality whereas those of us who view life with a mystical view learn to live reality. That is the inner world of reality, less the ego bias and its perceptions.

    The older lady, is you, the old you. The younger lady is still developing. The negative aspects of seeking to understand the inner self is it does make it hard to stay grounded in the social world. Seeing is hard since what you are looking for requires more than one set of glasses; the ego self and the true self. Earrings represent the 4 sided wholeness you receive when seeking the true Self. The star is your star and it is seeking the ground that will provide the wholeness and balance you seek in life.

    This is an interpretation addressing the inner search. There may experiences in your current waking life that corresponds with the dream content and has it's won message. I believe by looking at the metaphors you will be able to discern those waking associations. They may lead you back to the MDS dream site and this person called Gerard {a fictitious name that is meant to promote nothing}.

    Your impressions would be helpful, and appreciated.

    Re: searching for glasses

    I think this is relevant. I think the Gerard theme, substituting the friend coming to stay, was to lead me back to this site, which I have not consulted for quite a while, being absorbed in my new house and all the practicalities which that brings instead in waking life. It was to remind me to consult my dreams again and balance this part of my life.
    The glasses theme is like you said looking to my ego and true self and almost has that mirror theme -looking through glasses... and the pair of them being the pairing of ego and true self. Funnily, my pair is missing and I am reminded again to search for this.
    There are points in waking life where I have reminded myself to keep 'grounded' and not get 'carried away' so it could be pointing to this too.

    Re: searching for glasses

    It seems to me maybe you found out a new way of thinking at this website, then you run into someone, or even your own ole thoughts, that are different from your beliefs now, You and the other person see things differntly. You toss each others glasses So the other person will have to see things the way you or she sees them. You are questioning your own belief system. You are not sure how you feel about what you've seen here. You are seeing yourself differently. You are not sure how you or your life feel about the new mystical part of your mind. Just don't do anything to fast, sleep on it. It will come to you. Give yourself time to adjust.

    Claire,
    To be honest I now can't remember the exact point I was trying to convey about the clock. But since you have reminded me of the interpretation I want to revisit your dream and see what interpretation I come up with in a second try. Just to test myself.

    Does the clock have any meaning for you?

    Re: searching for glasses

    yes it was a spelling error - meant to be cloak - or rather was a long mystical type garb/dress in the dream
