Dream Manifest/Dream Interpretation


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/10/dream-manifestdream-interpretation/

Psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud always thought that dream content had a relevant meaning to our everyday lives.  Freud theorized that the content of our dreams are a form of wish fulfillment wherein our dreams are also equivalent to our hopes and are subconscious manifestations of what we want in life.  In his book “Interpretation of Dreams” he suggests that the content of dreams and wishes are in fact related.

The process of assigning meanings to dreams has been around even during Ancient times.  During the Greek and Roman civilizations, dreams of the senators were often discussed during sessions as these could have meanings and consequences on society.   The Egyptians on the other hand believed that dreams are ways of communication between the gods and men.  In modern times, dreams are usually the subject of dram analysis and various schools of psychology are studying the underlying meaning behind dreams.

Freud claims that dreams are forms of wish fulfillment.  Adults tend to have more complicated dreams than children because of external factors which vary greatly between the age group.  Adult dreams are more complicated to decipher but he proposes that the dreamer himself can know or knows subconsciously his wishes and wants.   Because of this complication, dreams of adults tend to be hidden and are often distorted with the dreamer’s hidden wishes concealed.

Dream manifestation and interpretation are some of the most popular topics in Psychology.  Professionals in the field believe that dreams are in fact subconscious reactions of our minds to our everyday life and situation.  Individuals searching the mysteries of the subconscious continues to grow as people who undergo dream analysis, psychoanalysis for interpretation and help as well as those who consult dream dictionaries for meanings and dream interpretations search their dreams for their hidden meanings.
