Meaning of Dreams


History of Dreaming:

In the past the use of dreams was to heal and also for communicating with the Gods. It was an act of passage for certain tribes, where people were able to perform spiritual exercises in order to get an enlightening dream, and later give it to the other tribe members following the dream’s reception. At the start of the 19th century, the methods we analyzed and interpreted dreams was elevated to a higher level. It was only recently that two prominent psychiatrists Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud determined to take dreaming to the higher level. Although they each had their own theories about the meaning of dreams, they both realized that dreams were actually an exchange with the subconscious and the conscious

The late 19 century as well as the 20 the century, there was a complete revolution in dreaming. Jung as well as Freud believed that unconscious was the primary part of the mind that was involved in dreams. However, they did differing in their understanding of the meanings and understanding of dreams. Freud believed there was an active restriction that fought the unconscious while sleeping. Jung denied that dreams were an effective language, even though they are strange, they are capable of revealing its true significance. Jung believed there was an underlying subjective view of dreaming that each person who was in the dream was a reflection of various characteristics of the person who is dreaming. Fritz Perlstheory was similar, but different in this regard, as he believed that the suppressed and rejected aspects of our self are projections that are our dreams. Fitiz however, went on to add that the objects in the dream that are not living represent the traits and characteristics of the person who is dreaming. In order to comprehend the meaning of the dream according to Perls’ theory, the person who dreams is required to imagine himself as the objects of the dream in order to connect it with their particularity. If you think about the implications of each person’s individual personality and different life circumstances, you will realize that no two people who have the same dream can be able to draw the identical significance. So, even though Sigmund Freud is the earliest pioneer of the study of dream symbols, and the three neurologists who examined dreams had different views on the meaning of dreams but they all agreed that the meaning of a dream was dependent on the person who dreamed.

“A dream is the disguised fulfillment of a suppressed desire. Interpretation of dreaming is as an goal the elimination of the mask to which the thoughts of the dreamer have been to. Furthermore, it is an extremely valuable tool for psychoanalysis, as it is the most efficient method to gain insights into the unconscious life of the psychic.” The dream interpretation technique was developed by Sigmund Freud

“Since dreams reveal details about the inside of the person and expose to the patient the aspects of his personality that are manifested in his everyday behavior are merely neurotic symptoms, it is evident that we can’t treat him by focusing on the aspect of consciousness by itself and must effect an alteration in the unconscious. Based on our current knowledge, this is only possible through the conscious and thorough integration of unconscious content.” Carl Jung Carl Jung
