Am I dreaming? – Part 1

I am jumping straight from study of active behavior to analysis of the subconscious for sometime.

I have been looking through many dream analysis books of late.
They say dreams represent the emotional state of a person.
Dreams use a variety of weird combination of elements to suggest
the subconscious state of the mind.By saying weird combination, I mean the most unrelated elements possible.

The combinations range from snakes in bed and computers being hacked to cars flying in the air and many more.

How to interpret a dream?

Now, many of us take the dreams in their literal senses.
For example, when a mother gets a dream of her daughter getting married, she may think
that is an indication that her daughter will soon be married.
Dream analyzers suggest that there is more to a dream than just its literal meaning.
In our example, the mother may be having this dream due to her anticipation of seeing
her daughter’s marriage. She may be looking forward to this event so much that her dream
had to give her the joy of the event to satisfy her expectations.

Dream Ingredients

They also talk about elements in dreams and the significance of these elements.For example, a house indicates security, basic needs and values. One may be getting dreams of home to indicate the feeling of being settled or wanting to settle. Of course, its the combination with which one dreams a home that leads to a meaningful interpretation. 

Color Magic in dreams

Colors also have significance in dreams. For example, white may be featured in many dreams with spiritual overtones. Its also recognized as an emblem of hope. For example, when people feel they have lost everything, they usually see the color white in  their dreams as an indication to restore hope and have faith.

But beware ! White does not always indicate positive potential. It can also
indicate a growing uneasiness with a similar approach to life.

The Great Fall

There are some dreams which feel so real that one cannot forget for a long period
of time. For example, dream of having a powerful sensation of falling. Falling
reflects the feeling of loss of control.

Based on my understanding of these concepts, I have tried to interpret a dream in the next part. Kindly check and any suggestions related to it are welcome.
