“A dream is a spontaneous self-presentation of the current state of unconsciousness expressed in the form of symbols.”

Carl Jung

Dreams are a psychic phenomenon, spontaneous products of a sleeping mind, meaningless and trivial only at first sight.

They show how you unconsciously perceive your conscious life by giving you the missing insights about significant areas of your life or pointing out mistakes you make that you are not aware of.

If you want to live a fulfilled life, you must understand the meaning of your dreams.

To get their meaning, you should “translate” the symbols, characters, and activities that appear in dreams into your conscious language.

Depth psychology has tools you can use to translate the dreams’ language into your language, which you will learn by further researching the content of our website.

You spend at least one-third of your life sleeping, and even when you are awake, consciousness alone does not mean that you fully understand what is happening around you. The task of grasping the meaning of dreams thus becomes even more essential for your growth.

All dreams are different.

When two people have the same dream, it does not have the same meaning. You have to consider the dreamers’ life circumstances and their associations when interpreting the dream.

Everyday Dreams & Big Dreams

These two types of dreams come from different parts of your unconscious psyche.

The first part is the personal unconscious which starts to form after your birth, and the process of its creation lasts your entire life. It contains everything you have forgotten or suppressed.

Most dreams that come from this part of the unconscious are referring to daily challenges you are faced with. With their symbolic message, they want to help you make better decisions in your everyday life.

These dreams are known as the “Everyday dreams”.

The second part of your Unconscious psyche is the collective unconscious that you are born with.

It contains the experience of all the people who lived before you, embedded in your unconscious in the form of archetypes.

The dreams that come from this part of the unconscious are known as the “Big dreams” because they are based on the historical experience of collective knowledge. They point to some crucial aspects of your life where your personal experience is not enough.

How are dreams analyzed?

In analysis you need to consider three important facts:

  • life circumstances at the time you had the dream
  • associations to characters and actions in the dream
  • emotions that were present in the dream

You need to fit all that into a logical story that leaves a cognitive and emotional impression on you, kind of like a “Eureka!” moment that will give you a new point of view on the topic that the dream covered.
