Rats in Dreams

Posted By admin on January 26th, 2010

Rats are vermin that can infest our homes and sometimes infiltrate our dreams.  Rats in the real world are hated and despised because they destroy crops and bring diseases.  They have started plagues and brought death.  Aside from maybe Mickey Mouse the site of a rat will make your squirm with disgust.

Like most other animals in dreams, how an animal is thought of is generally a representation of the people that are in our lives. For example, do you have a friend who acts like a rat?  Are they persistent, annoying and destructives like the rats in the real world?  Then this may be our subconscious telling us to be wary of this friend.

Posted By admin on January 25th, 2010

Do people dream in black and white or in color?  This is probably one of the most often asked questions when talking about dreams.  Some people say that they dream in color, while other say that their dreams are in black and white.

The answer is that people dream in black and white and in color.  The problem is that when we wake up, the dream is sometimes forgotten; therefore when we start to recall the dream it is in black and white because some of the essential elements tend to be missing.

How the Subconscious Mind Uses Archetypes in Dreams

Posted By admin on January 8th, 2010

The subconscious mind indeed works in mysterious ways. Sometimes it expresses itself by creating images possible only in dreams. It may pick up things from your waking hours, things that are easy enough to recognize, but there are also times when it only uses symbols and archetypal imagery to convey or form a statement. With that said, it’s only normal for us to be interested with archetypes and how the subconscious mind uses them in our dreams.

Dream interpretation has been an important factor in getting to know ourselves better. In psychology, patients who seek help are encouraged to slip in a sleep-like state to bring out what the subconscious mind holds. Dreams, as well as the subconscious mind, have always been the “keepers” of one’s uninhibited desires and emotions that are best kept hidden.
