The royal road, why we dream
Sigmund Freud explicated dreams as the royal road to the unconscious. The path where we are all kings and queens; oblivious to the tribulations of the wearisome world, where yearnings are fulfilled and wishes granted. The unconscious mind is always unchained, unrestricted and unobstructed. Dreams are the mind’s insensible fulfilment of sub conscious desires. The waking mind may not accept a valiant disclosure of love or uninhibited expression of resentment. But dreams allow this completion. They are uninhibited. The unlocked mind soars to heights and breathes at great depths too. It makes the best of that freedom. It dreams.
Ingredients that cook up a dream
Dreams contain successions of images, thoughts, feelings, ideas as well as sensations. Dream content may involve incidences the entire lifetime: past, present as well as future. There may be objects, concepts, and people, fears, joys, successes and failures altogether. Previous challenges that have been overcome years ago may crop up to the surface in a dream. The emotion connected with the event may be experienced too. The incident would have passed but the emotion tinged with it lingers in the subconscious mind and surfaces when given an opportunity. Past relationships, partners, professions all appear in dreams if the emotional tone attached to them has been unresolved. Dreams about current occurrences are mere spillovers of the daytime residue of actions that didn’t get accomplished in wakefulness; hence they chose to linger on. These may not be very sentimental; they indeed seem like a living day extending through the night. They signify conscious preoccupation with the issue that continues into the night. They ought to offer messages too. The completion of the event usually terminates these dreams.
Why it’s important to know your dreams
According to Freud the motto of dreams is wish fulfilment; if you haven’t achieved it in reality; you can have the candy in your dream and make yourself happy. Carl Jung proposed that dreams reflect events that one may have been neglecting; thus the conscious mind wants to prompt us through the dreams. The Gestalt concept follows a different philosophy elucidating that the ignored, rejected and suppressed part of the being comes alive in dreams. There are several messages based on varied concepts of interpretation. Most dreams ought to be construed in the context of individual situations. There is usually alteration of constructs within the dream, which should be understood in detail in order to earn the apposite message. If you don’t listen, you won’t know what the dream is trying to say. You need an expert to analyze your dream and give it direction.
