This blog is for those interested in venturing into the realm of dream analysis and possibly submitting dreams for comments by myself and others.
Dreams have a lot to teach us about ourselves and the working of the mind in general. I've noticed a lot of people have at least a passing interest in their dreams, while others have followed their dreams for years. In my work analyzing dreams, I understand them as a profound way to go deeply into the workings of the mind; the connections your mind has made between your feelings, thoughts, life history, significant others, hopes and dreams for the future, conflicts, and your wishes and fantasy life.
In what other way can all this rich mental activity be accessed so directly!? No therapist or anyone else put those dreams in your head, so its definitely your mind at work- its customized and individualized YOU!
Any discussion of dreams, what they are and what they mean, is bound to bring up strong feelings, disagreements, opinions, debate, denunciations, and praise/ridicule. This blog is an accumulation of the thoughts and understandings of many bright thinkers and analysts from Freud to current practitioners.
This overview of my understanding of dreams is not meant to be complete nor scholarly.
Nothing in this blog is meant to be construed as diagnosis, treatment, or psychotherapy. Working with a qualified therapist is advised for diagnosis and treatment of psychological problems and symptoms.
