“This day’s residue is transformed by dream work into a dream and made innocuous by sleep.” – Sigmund Freud
We dream every single night about a lot of (usually) trivial events. Some of us dream more while and others dream less, but we all dream.
The dreams are connected with our subconscious mind. They can let us know what is happening inside the deep mind and how we confront different situations on a daily basis.
While we dream, our subconscious mind reveals hidden or repressed feelings. The process of dreaming is a reflection of our subconsciousness.
If dreams are reflection of what is subconscious, all of our dreams have some meaning, but because so many things happens to us in one day, we put it in our “storage”, and this “storage” creates our dream.
We are unable to process all of it on a conscious level, because eventually we will become crazy!
We are not conscious about every little detail that happens, so we store it in our subconscious part. Everything that remains in this part makes us dream, and it reveals what we have “forgotten”, but we must pay attention in order to see it.
When we wake up from a dream, we feel different emotions, and those exact feelings can tell us a lot about what we wanted to hide from ourselves.
There are 3 different kind of dreams: lucid dreams, warning dreams and precognitive dreams.
LUCID DREAMS – are the type of dreams where you can control what happens in the dream. They have some benefits, for example: your creativity is at it’s highest peak because the conscious state in this type of dreams does not exist. They are the real representation of who you really are. Your Intuition during the lucid dream is in completely natural state. In the lucid dreams you can experience everything you want.
Famous people who were experiencing lucid dreams were: Nikola Tesla, Richard Feynman and Salvador Dali.
Dreams that contain messages and symbols provide answers to different questions. These dreams are called warning dreams. They are influenced by your own reality and they contain a secret code that can lead you to some clues of what’s going on in your real life.
Precognitive dreams are the dreams in which we dream about our future. For example, dreaming about a friend you have not seen in years and then running into him/her in the local market the next day, or dreaming that you won a soccer match days before it actually happens would be deemed precognitive dream experiences. These dreams can predict good and bad news – even death. They may be quite accurate in revealing even the smallest details of an event that will take place in the future.
Dreams ale like psychotherapy. This means that dreaming puts out own emotions and feelings into images and so-called ‘personal movies’.
In our dreams we have different connections that we would never have on a conscious level. That’s why it is like a psychotherapy.
Of course, there are people who say that dreams have no meanings, but I believe that’s far from the truth.
Our dreams contain many symbols… only if we knew how to interpret them using our intuition.
A thing for you in a dream could be interpreted in one way, while for someone else the same thing could be interpreted in a different way and have different meaning, although there are common dream themes like death, falling, flying, paralysis, $ex, teeth, running and many more. (check each word to see the meaning)
These themes have slightly different meanings for every one of us, depends on what’s really happening in our subconscious mind. Many people can also experience multiple dreams in one night.
The process of dreaming has a purpose to clean up you mind. It is like a channel that depletes everything from our subconsciousness and makes us feel relieved.
Dreaming helps us overcome different experiences. While we dream, we accept the truths that we hide and repress. But if we hide and repress, and force ourselves to avoid the truth, we just put it in our subconscious part. Like deleting pictures from your computer. Once you delete them they will stay in the Recycle Bin until you ’empty your recycle bin’.
This doesn’t mean they’re gone, but it means they need to pass through the channel of cleaning.
“The dream is reflection of the waves of unconscious life in the floor of the imagination” – H. Amiel
