    About Dream Interpretation

    For as long as we have dreamed, we have tried to understand the meaning of our dreams.

    Over the ages, many meanings have been ascribed to various dream elements as is apparent when checking out any dream dictionary.

    Sleep Consultations

    Recently, psychologists in the West have tried to approach dream interpretation by means of the scientific method, coming up with different theories regarding both why we dream and the meaning of our dreams.

    This scientific endeavor however is yet to explain the phenomenon of dreams thoroughly.

    Dream interpretation theories include:

    Freud & Psychoanalysis

    Sigmund Freud regarded dream interpretation as “the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind.”

    In most dreams, we combine “day residue” or daily events with the fulfillment of wishes that we cannot fulfill in the waking state of consciousness.

    Any wish that we had the previous day and could not fulfill remains within us as stuck energy. We can suppress it so that it doesn’t interfere with our daily functioning, for example, if the wish cannot be fulfilled due to social conventions. This energy can be suppressed but it remains in the unconscious level of the mind where it waits to be expressed, experienced during the night, in dreams, where there is no convention, no morality, no ego.

    However, even dreaming about some of our deeply unconscious wishes could be highly upsetting therefore, Freud postulated, there is a “censor” within us who distorts our wishes and codes them symbolically into non-disturbing dream material. In this way, the energy is at least partially released, yet sleep is undisturbed. If this mechanism fails, the dream can become disturbing, resulting in a nightmare or anxiety dream.

    In Freudian dream interpretation, the symbolism is analyzed, which allows us to identify the unconscious wishes that are trying to become fulfilled. Then they can be released under the guidance and support of the psychoanalyst, thereby freeing any tensions and neurosis they may have created in the patient.

    Carl Gustav Jung

    Jung continued where Freud left off, expanding his theory of why we dream and how to appropriately interpret dreams.

    If Freud focused on the pathological side of dreams and personal unconsciousness, Jung spoke of the broader meaning of dreams and collective unconsciousness.

    Jung recognized that there are archetypes, dream images with universal meanings that are common in dreams across all humans.

    While Jung’s method of dream interpretation appears similar to the traditional methods of dream dictionaries, like Freud’s method, it relies heavily on the subjective interpretation of the dreamer himself.


    Adler also developed a theoretical and clinical approach to dream interpretation. While Freud centered on the internal realm, Adler spoke of the influence of the social realm.

    While Freud saw libido as our main driving force, Adler recognized the importance of politics.

    Clinical Sleep Science

    In the realm of clinical sleep science, dream interpretation plays a pivotal role, particularly when addressing patients’ concerns regarding their dream content.

    This is a Dream...

    Drawing upon the concept of thematic continuity and the continuity of emotions, sleep specialists strive to connect the dream narrative to the dreamer’s waking experiences. This is achieved by discerning the underlying emotional and behavioral patterns within the dream, which often mirror, albeit in an exaggerated form, those present in the patient’s real life.

    To illustrate, a dream involving being pursued by a creature might symbolize feelings of fear or panic, coupled with avoidance behavior. In such instances, the sleep specialist would engage the patient in a discussion about potential parallels in their waking life, such as whether they might be evading a certain situation or individual.

    By doing so, the dream becomes a reflective tool, offering insights into the emotional landscape of the dreamer’s waking life.

    Dreaming in Animals & Primitive People

    Animals don’t dream.

    Primitive people don’t dream.

    Dreaming has a different function in primitive societies. When a dream occasionally happens in a primitive tribe, the dreamer is recognized as a shaman, and his dreams are regarded as prophetic and believed to bring important messages to the tribe.

    Why is there a difference between uncivilized people and modern societies?

    The former does not repress as much as the latter. The unconscious mind of primitive people is a lot smaller than that of modern people; they live their lives naturally with no repression.

    Animals too do not repress and hence do not need to dream.

    Why We Dream?

    Repressing any energy, for example, an unfulfilled desire, results in dreaming. The repressed energy enters the unconscious mind and when your guard’s down, while you’re sleeping, it is released and manifests as dreaming. Finally, in the dream, the desire can be fulfilled and the energy can be released.

    For example, after a day of fasting, eating dreams may arise. If one abstains from sexual activity, then one will likely experience sexual dreams.

    And the more one represses, the more civilized one becomes; the larger the unconscious mind becomes.

    Nightmares result from very strong repression.

    Dreaming in an Awakened Person

    An awakened individual, like animals and primitive people, does not dream.

    But the difference between enlightened beings and primitives is fundamental. Primitives conform to all their desires unconsciously, and naturally, while an enlightened person does so in full consciousness.

    An enlightened person does not care about respectability and what others think of him. Therefore, he can wholeheartedly do anything he wants to do without thinking of the consequences. Nothing is left incomplete. The life of a Buddha, or an awakened one, is intense and total. With no repressions, dreams simply aren’t created.


    Keeping all the above in mind, what kind of work can be done with dreams?

    Dreams can be worked with in various ways. For example, the practices of astral projection, lucid dreaming, and dream yoga all require strong dream recall; otherwise, these experiences may not be remembered. Dream journaling, the act of writing dreams upon awakening from them, can improve dream recall.

    Psychologically, it is indeed possible to use dreams as a reservoir of uncensored mental material to work with in understanding oneself. No dream dictionary or outside interpretation will suffice, however; one needs to figure out what each dream element represents in one’s personal mind.

    To overcome nightmares, working with dreams can also be helpful.

    While in primitive societies the shaman has an important role due to his use of dreams for divination, in civilized societies the psychoanalyst has power over dreams because he can help his clients analyze them.

    As a psychotherapeutic tool, dreams can indeed offer the therapist easier access to the patient’s inner world. By working with the insight which can be derived from dream interpretation, one can become more natural and less repressive.

    However, psychologists should not waste their whole lives interpreting others’ dreams… What is needed is consciousness.

    Ultimately, dreams should be transcended, not simply analyzed, by allowing the energy of the unconscious mind to be released and no longer storing energy in the unconsciousness. This can be done through the practice of meditation. By simply knowing that a dream is merely a dream, the dream is transcended and the energy is released.

    This brings to mind a story about a Zen master who woke up one morning and said to his disciple:

    “I had a dream last night. Would you interpret it for me, what it means?”

    The disciple said:

    “Wait! Let me bring a cup of tea for you.”

    Taking the tea, the master then asked:

    “Now what about the dream?”

    The disciple said:

    “Forget about it, because a dream is a dream and needs no interpretation. A cup of tea is enough interpretation – awake!”

    The master said:

    “Right, absolutely right! If you had interpreted my dream I would have thrown you out of my monastery, because only fools interpret dreams. You did well; otherwise, you would have been thrown out completely, and I would not have looked at your face again.” (Source: Osho; Osho)
