The emotional and the psychological aspects of dream interpretation are often left up to speculation on some level, as no one actually knows why we dream or how dreams come about. However, many psychologists think it is best if these aspects of dreaming are left to the dreamers’ own interpretation. For instance, a dream of teeth falling out may symbolize an attack. If you were to look at it in a lightly, you wouldn’t think that teeth would be related to an attack, right?
Dreams, as we all know, are an amazing and unique form of consciousness and are only able to reveal what we consider to be our true selves when they are awake. But when they are sleeping they can also reveal more about the subconscious mind, which makes us a little less ourselves. And when these elements of the unconscious are combined with the conscious aspects of our mental activity we often get a clearer picture of who we really are.
Psychologically speaking, one of the most powerful psychological elements of dreams is falling in line with reality, since when we think we are dreaming and everything is going to be alright, things tend to go wrong. For example, a common dream is of crashing into something and losing control. If we have the right knowledge of what causes this type of thing to happen (like a car accident), we can use this information to make better decisions in the future.
However, the psychological aspects of dreaming are not the only ones that we can get from them. The dreams can also reveal a lot about ourselves if we just know how to read them correctly. For example, if we dream we are feeling anxious and uncomfortable, then that means we have some sort of problem in the subconscious mind which is influencing our behavior.
It could be an addiction for instance (like overeating) or some type of psychological problem which affects our thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and behaviors. If we can figure out the subconscious mind of another person (which is much easier to do than the conscious mind), we can often predict where that person will take their next step and if they are making the right decisions based on their current state of mind.
Dreams and their meaning can also reveal more about our personality and beliefs and even what is coming up in our future. If we dream about getting a promotion at work, then that means we believe in ourselves and are likely to be successful. If we dream about losing a loved one, then we have a difficult time believing in the future of the relationship and may need to reevaluate what we believe in and whether the love relationship can survive the loss.
