Dream Therapy

Why is Dream Therapy and Psychosychoanalysis Important?

Some of mankind's greatest creations, ideas, revelations, inventions, predictions and healing have all been attributed to the attempts of interpreting and understanding dreams and go beyond the normal awakened state of consciousness. Visions of symbols, words, objects and people whom appear during sleep cycles can give us many messages. In any particular culture, the meaning of dreams can vary in their vision and interpretation. In fact, the mechanism of dreams is simply a way in which your subconscious or unconscious mind attempts to teach your conscious mind lessons because we are so distracted in our awakened state. This is another reason why relaxation and meditation practices are so important. Within our site you will uncover the reasons, in conjunction with other therapeutic techniques, why dreams and relaxation play an extremely important role in therapy and self awareness.

It is painfully obvious, in many situations, why higher numbers of people utilized substances to acheive altered states, especially dealing with stress and stress disorders. The reasons here are that due to so much erroneous societal programming and training thoughout life that one is not trained to appreciate these finer techniques or educated to appreciate other avenues of enjoyment, exploration, relaxation, discovery, self-awareness and spiritual enlightenment. Ssadly most cultures are full of misinformation and negative abstract thought which causes confusion or misguidance to the average person. These factors lead to a lack of independent thought processes and pleasure throughout life, if not controlled properly or recognized by the individual. Dr. Wayne Dyer points this out throughout his book entitled "Your Erronious Zones." His book I highly recommend to uncovering mistaken and unnessary thought processes in which any layman can comprehend.

Psychologist Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud, who have both embraced the important significance of dream interpretation, have given credit to Artemidorus' work and recognized their value in analysis and therapy.

Freud, the father of psychoanalysis, interpreted people's dreams in order to help them unearth hidden feelings. Jung, a Swiss psychologist, who initially followed in Freud's footsteps, developed theories of Anima (women) and Animus (men) involving the feminine and masculine principles and the collective unconscious symbols known as Archetypes.

Archtypes such as falling, flying, colors and numbers all take on a universal meaning, as well as, specific significance to cultures and the individual dreamer.

With the advancement of science in the 1950's, many studies and theories were summarized on the physiological aspect of dreams. The discoveries of REM (rapid eye movement) and NREM (non rapid eye movement), which are the brain's electrical activities during sleep, became apparent.

REM cycles four to five times a night during sleep and lasts less than 30 minutes per cycle for the first cycle but increases in length as each cycle progresses. This is the period when dreams occur. The other sleep cycles are spent in NREM sleep without dreaming.

Through extensive research, it was also discovered that birds and nearly all mammals, including newborn babies, experience REM sleep. People with emotional disturbances, those who have suffered trauma, and highly stressed individuals, seem to increase their dream time.

It is important to note that if one spend a little time and makes some effort to understand these principles, the value of relaxation, meditation or dream therapy becomes obvious. Additionally, it is exceedingly important to recognize the spiritual insights, rewards and awareness one may gather from understanding or interpreting Christian or Biblical dream meanings. It is often through the mechanism of dreams that we are healed and the Lord give us healings.
