Are Dreams Illusions? Learn Why You Can Trust The Meaning of A Dream

TrustSigmund Freud was the fist one who gave us an interesting scientific explanation for the meaning of dreams. According to this theory, dreams are wish fulfillments. The dreamer sees reflected in the dream images the things that he/she wishes he could see happening in his daily life.

I followed his method of dream interpretation in 1979, when I was 18-years-old and I was living for a few months in San Diego, California, even though I’m Brazilian. After this trip I went to Greece where I have many relatives because my parents are Greek. At that period of time, I was passing through a serious transformation.

I lost my country and the life I had there.

During this period of time I had many vivid dreams. I read Freud’s book about how to interpret the meaning of dreams and I started interpreting my dreams according to his method of dream interpretation. It seemed to work.

I had many dreams about my little cousins. I was living with my uncle and his family.

I had three noisy cousins who were little children (from 3 to 5-years-old) at that time, while I was a teen. I became 18-years-old when I was there. My aunt prepared a birthday party for me. I didn’t have friends in San Diego, so I invited all my classmates for the party.

This birthday party was the only thing my aunt did especially for me. She was very nice and generous with my cousins, but cold and demanding with me. I believed that I had many dreams about my cousins because I wanted to be in their place. They had everything they wanted to; my uncle was a rich and named scientist.

I understood that according to Freud’s method of dream interpretation the fact that I had many dreams about my three cousins indicated that I was jealous. This was true. They had a wonderful life, while I was alone in an unknown country, far from my friends, and having to get adapted to numerous rules in order to follow my family’s lifestyle and study the English language.

I concluded that Freud’s method was true. I really wanted to be a child like my cousins and live in their wonderful environment. I also wanted to have my aunt’s attention like them, instead of feeling that I didn’t belong there.

However, later I saw that Freud’s method of dream interpretation didn’t work for all kinds of dreams. There were dreams where I couldn’t find something that I wished to see happening in my life. I tried to abstract the meaning of my dreams the more I could, but in the end I had to conclude that Freud’s method of dream interpretation could help me interpret only certain dreams; it couldn’t be applied to all dreams.

I abandoned dream interpretation when I left the USA and I traveled to Greece. I started studying the meaning of dreams again (in Athens, where I decided to live) only when I got married and I was a young mother, in 1984 (when I was 23-years-old). I studied all existent methods. I looked only for scientific explanations about the meaning of dreams.

Carl Jung’s method of dream interpretation seemed to be the only one that worked for all types of dreams.

I started seriously following Jung’s method only in 1986. To my surprise, as soon as I started writing down all my dreams in a dream journal (and not only the ones I felt curious about) I started remembering many dreams. In the beginning I could only understand the meaning of a few dream images. Later I learned how to translate an entire dream.

I understood that my little cousins represented three immature parts of my own personality. The unconscious mind was showing me how immature I was when I was 18-years-old, by using their example.

Carl Jung’s method of dream interpretation is the only right one, but it is too complicated. I cannot explain his method in a few words, the same way I explained Freud’s method. It was very hard for me to simplify Jung’s method of dream interpretation after becoming an expert on dream translation and curing many people for two decades.

The translation of the meaning of dreams according to the scientific method is complicated because we have to exactly translate the meaning of the dream images to words that can be understood by our conscious logic.

The divine unconscious mind speaks through images, while following a different logic, which is based on sanctity.

You must learn how to follow the superior unconscious logic in order to understand God’s words in dreams, instead of following your selfish and ignorant logic. When you’ll learn the dream language you’ll perceive that you’ll have information about everything that is important for you.

The fact that you have a direct communication with the unconscious mind is a spectacular alternative. This means that you have a direct communication with God.

Therefore, the impression that dreams merely reflect our hidden desires is the result of Sigmund’s Freud erroneous conclusions. Dreams don’t reflect our desires; they are the unconscious words. You have to learn the meaning of the dream symbols and follow the unconscious logic in order to understand the meaning of the dream images.

When you’ll learn the dream language you’ll perceive that the unconscious mind works like a natural protector. You’ll have a source of objective and valid information. At the same time, you’ll find a free psychotherapist who treats your psychological problems, helping you become more intelligent.

When you translate the meaning of dreams, you are enlightened by a superior mind. Dreams are not wish fulfillments. They give you information that you can trust.

For example, here are a few sentences from a dream dreamt by a patient who has many psychological problems. I cannot give you more information about the dreamer and his case, or publish his entire dream. However, these sentences will surely help you understand the importance of the unconscious messages.

Dream:

I walk passing a cafeteria. It serves lunch and dinner at fixed hours. People come down to have dinner at the cafeteria but I don’t. I want to eat a little later because I have eaten something and I am not hungry. It’s too early for me to have dinner now. The problem is that I won’t be able to have dinner then because the cafeteria serves dinner only now. The dinner menu is beef. It is two chucks of meat in a black earthen pot.

Dream Translation:

I walk passing a cafeteria. It serves lunch and dinner at fixed hours.

The cafeteria is a place where you drink coffee. Some cafeterias serve also food, depending on the hours you go there. At morning and at afternoon the cafeteria serves coffee and snacks. Around 12 o’clock it serves lunch, and at night, it serves dinner.

Coffee represents the acceptance of what is bad. Therefore, the cafeteria is a place where you learn how to accept what is bad for some reason.

For example, you may have to learn how to accept what is bad because one of your relatives will stay in your house for a few days and his presence is bothering you. However, you understand that you have to be tolerant and friendly. You won’t have to bear his presence forever. Besides that, he is your uncle, your mother’s brother. He is a member of your family.

Sometimes, accepting what is bad is necessary, so that you may show goodness.

Other times accepting what is bad is negative because you accept what is bad without criticizing your actions. For example, you accept to steal money from your brother because he forgot his wallet somewhere and you see that he has a lot of money. So, you feel tempted to steal some money, believing that he won’t pay attention to the difference. In this case the acceptance of what is bad is negative.

The general meaning of a cafeteria is that it is a place where you learn how to accept what is bad for one reason or another.

The fact that this cafeteria also serves lunch and dinner at specific hours indicates that this is an important place of transformation.

The food you eat in dreams feeds your psyche, not your body.

The fact that in the place where you learn how to accept what is bad (the cafeteria) you can also feed your psyche indicates that the food you’ll give to your psyche will be based on the acceptance of what is bad.

In other words, in order to accept your annoying uncle’s presence and manage to be gentle to him even though his presence is bothering you, you must feed your psyche with the right energy. The food you’ll give to your psyche must be patience and compassion, so that you may be able to be nice to your uncle, even though you want to be alone.

The fact that the food is served on certain hours indicates that you’ll only be able to accept what is bad in certain circumstances. Only then will you be able to feed your psyche with the right energy.

For example, when you wake up at morning you are not in a good mood. You cannot be gentle to anyone, especially to your annoying uncle. You know that you will be able to be gentle with him only after going to the bathroom, brushing your teeth, etc. Therefore, you have to you feed your psyche with energy only after finishing with your morning activities, when you know that you’ll be able to smile to your uncle and gently answer his annoying questions.

This is why the food for your psyche, which is served in the cafeteria, must obey certain rules. You cannot feed your psyche whenever you want in order to accept what is bad. You have to prepare yourself and feel strong enough to accept what is bad. Only at a certain time of the day you are able to answer your uncle’s silly questions without showing anger.

The cafeteria represents a preparation to accept what is bad (and causes irritation) in a specific way, while respecting certain rules: you have to feed your psyche at specific hours in order to be able to effectively accept what is bad.

People come down to have dinner at the cafeteria but I don’t.

Other parts of your personality understand how to use the preparation for the acceptance of what is bad, but your ego (you) cannot accept this preparation. Your ego doesn’t want to follow various rules in order to be gentle. Your ego is lazy and rude. Your ego wants to show anger.

I want to eat a little later because I have eaten something and I am not hungry. It’s too early for me to have dinner now.

Your ego doesn’t feel the necessity to feed your psyche, like the other parts of your personality, which understand that they have to respect the period of time during which you are able to pretend that you don’t mind answering your uncle’s questions.

Your ego doesn’t want to accept this obligation.

Your ego wants to feed your psyche later because your ego doesn’t think that you have the obligation to show kindness to someone who is irritating you.

The problem is that I won’t be able to have dinner then because the cafeteria serves dinner only now.

You won’t be able to feed your psyche later because the cafeteria cannot follow your irresponsible attitude. Your ego must respect the period of time during which you can be gentle to your uncle.

The cafeteria knows that there is no way you can manage to be gentle immediately after wakening up because you are not in a good mood. The cafeteria serves food to your psyche only when you are strong enough, so that you may be able to accept doing something you dislike.

The dinner menu is beef. It is two chucks of meat in a black earthen pot.

Meat in dreams means violence. When you feed your psyche with beef this means that you are violent.

The earthen pot represents simplicity.

The black color represents the acceptance of what is bad.

Therefore, in the cafeteria you feed your psyche with the capacity to accept what is bad with simplicity (without difficulty). You totally accept what is bad because your plate is black.

Therefore, the way you’ll feed your psyche in order to accept your arduous mission (to be gentle with your uncle while he is in your house) will be bad. You won’t be gentle. You won’t show compassion.

For example, you will be ironic and make fun of him. Or, you’ll make him feel inferior. This means that you won’t directly be violent with him, but you will be cruel.

You will accept what is bad without showing anger, but you won’t accept what is bad by showing goodness. You will accept what is bad in a violent way (the beef), even though your violence won’t be as visible as if you would tell your uncle to go home. You will be cruel, while camouflaging your aggression with humor.

The food that the cafeteria serves to your psyche is not based on goodness, but merely on the acceptance of what is bad, in a way or another, without respecting moral rules.

…………………………………………………………………………………………

The unconscious wisdom is quite visible in the translation of the meaning of this dream. The dreamer understood that he has to pay attention to his behavior. The unconscious explanations were trying to help him become sensitive and show true compassion, instead of being aggressive or ironic.

The unconscious mind made the dreamer notice many details that he was disregarding. He learned many things at the same time.

It’s obvious that the information and the guidance that the unconscious mind gave him in this dream is related to his daily life, and to his attitude. The dream messages were quite revealing.

Dreams are not illusions. Dreams are true lessons. When you are able to translate their meaning according to the right method you understand your problems, and you always find the solutions you need.

Christina Sponias continued Carl Jung’s research into the human psyche, discovering the cure for all mental illnesses, and simplifying the scientific method of dream interpretation that teaches you how to accurately translate the meaning of your dreams, so that you can find health, wisdom and happiness.
