Dreams tend to be loaded with significant and vibrant circumstances and images which don’t seem to make a lot of sense when considered at face value.
This really is just one of the bewildering things about recalling or recollecting dreams. The content of most dreams is completely baffling. In the dream, of course, the scenarios make perfect sense. “I was driving an ice cream truck, but instead of ice cream, I was selling old shoes. The children were eating them anyway.” Now, try to convey the “logic” of your dream by logging it in a written journal or telling a friend. Nearly nothing about it makes any sense whatsoever.
People should realize that to analyze the dream and understand it, requires knowing a little something about the subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind processes information in terms of symbols and metaphors, instead of literal representations. The literal method of interacting on a conscious level is molded by language and other constraints. This essentially restricts the prospect of creative inspiration and problem-solving. The subconscious brain functions differently. Is has the flexibility to work without worrying about the boundaries of absolute meanings.
Therefore in an effort to take advantage of such messages, we need to translate the metaphors.
It is important that people put this into perspective regarding their own lives and encounters, since this can be significant. A book about dreams may propose ranges of probable explanations and supply us feasible understandings from the disorganized imagery and scenarios our dreaming brain conjures. Keep in mind, that only by using cognizant reflection as well as incorporation with these logical thoughts and memories, that we are likely to make any sense of it all. Most importantly, you must steer clear of the urge to deal with the challenge too literally. These are symbols and metaphors and are not meant to be taken at face value.
