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.

    secret passages

    I have re-occuring dreams about secret passage ways. Mostly i am in a huge old house and i am exploring this house. I know that there are secret passage ways in these houses i explore and most of my dream is trying to find the passage way. In some of the dreams though i do find the passage way. One specific re-occuring dream i find the passage in the owner of the house (an women of about 45) bedroom closet. The passage is usually narrow and i have to crawl and it brings me to a secret room with a huge window and a bed. The feeling i get in this room is of complete comfort. Also, i am younger in the dreams that i am able to explore the passage way as opposed to the dreams that i have where i am searching for the passage way. The house where i found the passage in the owners bedroom and was able to explore only happened once but i have since had dreams where i am in the same house and i am telling people exactly where the passage is and how to get to it. I however was never able to return to that room for some reason-like i am trying but can't make it there. Last night i had another dream where i was in my bosses house babysitting their kids while they went on vacation. I was looking for passages in this house but could not find them even though the kids told me they were there. I left the house to go on an errand and when i came back the house was in flames.

    Re: secret passages

    I think a house represents you - your body and mind. This could be about your relationship with your mother (just a hunch - not sure) Is the older woman your mothering (controling?) aspect of yourself? Have you not let yourself follow alternative "secret" pathways in your life since you were a child? Do you expect other people to 'find' these passages for you? You being at your boses house could represent your relationship with authority or your work life in general. Are you feeling restricted in your current position at work? knowing you could follow different paths but are afraid to? Fire is transformation i think - maybe a positive sign of change.

    Re: secret passages

    Katherine,
    As Edwina stated houses most always represent the dreamer, aspects of the dreamer or relationships of the dreamer {mother's house, etc.}. The secret passages could represent something within you, the unconscious {perhaps the deep unconscious] that you are trying to discover {discover secrets about yourself}.

    The fact that you are able to explore this one passage way in the dream {as opposed to other dreams where you are searching for the secret passageways} may suggest you have recently reached a point where you are finally able to discover something that you may not have previously known or realized. often such dreams will let you look into a secret room or passageway but not enter. Being able to enter this place often coincides with real discoveries in your waking life. Having accessed this passageway previously may suggest also you have been in this place, or situation, before. The older woman likely represents your wiser self, perhaps because of the lessons learned from having entered this secret passageway. She also may represent the future, perhaps what something in your life will be like, in conjunction with this secret passageway.
    But on the other hand the fact you can not access this secret place every time may mean you are not putting this wisdom to good use.

    The bed and bedroom, places of comfort. This could allude to an aspect about yourself. The younger you finds comfort in this place. But an older you may have concerns about the future. This may be the wisdom aspect, needing more usage and recognition.

    The second dream. The boss could be you. Or it could be someone who bosses you {probably someone other than a real boss at work}. The younger children would represent other aspects that are affected by this secret about yourself {babysitting other emotions while confronting this secret one}. There is probably a fear on your part if you ignore these other emotions your whole life will go up in 'flames'.

    The question remains, what is this secret passageway? You sometimes have access to it {in the present, as a younger you?}. Other times you don't. There may be an element of ignoring something about yourself, emotion wise, your true feelings about a certain matter in your life. It also may involve past experiences, perhaps experiences where you found complete comfort. These experiences may be in the past, or you may feel they are in the past {as an older, wiser you}.

    Could this dream involve your relationship with your boyfriend? Is there something that has been lost between the two of you? Compare my interpretation to your waking life and see if it fits somewhere. I wish I could be more precise but dreams seldom provide a direct answer to a problem or experience.
