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.

    Re: boxes of paintbrushes??

    Emily,
    Boxes are square and thus often symbolic of your true emotions or self. The different sized paintbrushes may be addressing those true aspects of your life, seeking to show which is or should be most important. If you try to paint yourself as something you are not, finding the right sized paintbrush becomes very difficult. Or painting over your true emotions only leads you away from the real truth. And since there were only 3 boxes {4, or a square box with four sides, is the number for wholeness} you may not quite be there, or being truthful to yourself or others

    Since you are still very young, I would look to your ego self, or waking life to determine what aspects that are in conflict {3 and trying to get to 4 can create much conflict}. Are you trying to paint something that it is not? Or are trying to find that place in life that fits you?

    A question that may be relevant. Have you recently had experiences choosing make-up?

    Re: boxes of paintbrushes??

    In my waking life i have been feeling like I am not good enough or that some of my family don't see me as smart/capable as my brother. I dont know if this could have anything to do with it? I do sometimes feel like i have to make myself "look" better with reading different types of books or being able to do something because i think it will make me look more impressive to my family? i basically feel like the black sheep because my brother is a brain and i am more creative. Do u think the paint brushes may be me trying to portray or paint myself as some thing i am not?

    Emily,
    Your paintbrush dreams are most likely reflecting those inferior qualities you feel about yourself. You have stated your desire to paint yourself as being better as others around you, an equal to your brother and impressive to everyone. This can explain the boxes of paint brushes {the box which represents the number 4 is the wholeness you seek but you are stuck at number 3}.

    My suggestion. Try not to worry about other people and concentrate on those positive aspects. You state you are creative. Focus on that and within time that part of you will naturally shine. Reading is good, knowledge is even better. The big paint brush you are looking for may be that creative person within that seeks to be let out. Brainiacs can only build. Creative people create. Buildings fall down, creation expands without limitations.
