Connect the pieces of the dreams to desires, emotions, thoughts and memories.
Digging deeper into your subconscious and unconscious through dreams reveals suppressed information about self
Dreams often reveal talents and goals that one is capable of pursuing.
The incidences of the dream reveal what occupies your mind majorly and what emotional response it triggers.
Trauma and PTSD
Trauma related nightmares occur during the deepest phase of the sleep cycle causing physical responses as well. Persistent long term nightmares of the traumatic event indicate the unresolving fear within the mind. Dream analysis decodes the presence of trauma in dreams.
Coping with loss
Intrusive memories of the loss or moments around it are the depictions of unhealed grief or lack of closure. The constant underlying sadness expresses itself through depictions in your dreams. It may also include incidences that you fear may cause you grief and pain.
Disturbing dreams, nightmares and sleep paralysis are closely linked to insomnia in many cases. Sleep issues caused by dreams require consultations with a certified dream analysis therapist in order to identify and resolve the concerns depicted in the dreams.
Guilt is stored in the subconscious and unconscious part of the mind. Often resurfacing of the guilt causing act or its consequences indicate the presence of triggers and lack of forgiveness of self.
The presentation of self in dreams reveals the way one views themself. Some depictions in dreams also reveal what one desires to be; which provides clarity for future plans and the steps needed to be their desired self.
Dream analysis is the investigation of repressed feelings that can be expressed in our dreams. Psychoanalytic theory believes repressed feelings often manifest themselves in our dreams. This happens because our defences are lowered when we sleep. Dream analysis helps uncover this unconscious material
Dream interpretation has been used as a therapeutic tool. It may serve as a self-awareness resource when digging deeper into your subconscious and emotional state, and when you’re working on finding peace of mind. Dreams bring automatic, unrealistic thoughts to the dreamer’s awareness, and so can be used to help clients recognize their distorted thinking.
Scientists and psychologists, old and new, tell us that dreams reveal critical aspects about ourselves. Dreams are a reflection of your recent state of mind, future possibilities, and changes that you have experienced.
