Many psychologists will agree that Freud Dreams are a good indicator of childhood stress. We are all prone to those kinds of dreams, but they are the sign of something deeper and more problematic. Let’s be honest here if you have ever been in a sleepover with a friend and saw them like “OH MY GOD, I’m being tripped to a party again”.
When you had a normal dream or if you were going through a regular dream and you woke up on the other side of the bed, then I guess you would be getting the message that something was wrong. And it is a problem. A problem that affects us all at some point in our lives. But what is really interesting is that Freud himself wrote about Freudian Dreams.
About Freudian Dreams
He actually said that “Freudian Dreams have a psychological reality behind them.” So what did Freud mean by this? Well, if you go through any of his lectures, he talked about his theory of dreams being the product of unconscious fears and desires, which he described as the wish to know what others are feeling.
This is what Freud really means when he says “Freudian Dreams have a psychological reality behind them.” Now, when Freud talks about this he goes into great detail, but it’s only through reading Freud’s writings that you can truly understand how these dreams actually work.
There are some rather common themes that we can spot throughout his writing. First, we find that we frequently find ourselves trying to fulfill some physical needs or wants. This is a fact. We generally want to go out, we want to take care of ourselves, we want to go to parties, we want to have sex, we want to buy things that we need, etc.
Try as we might, we are not always able to get our hands on all of the things that we want. What we do find is that when we do get these things, it tends to cause some form of conflict with us. So often when we need to fulfill our physical needs, it will cause a major conflict with our emotions.
Our conscious mind is the part of our brain that helps us handle our problems and handle our feelings, but when we’re in the deep recesses of our minds, the subconscious mind takes control. This is where Freud dreams come from.
The subconscious mind usually handles our fears and desires, so the unconscious mind finds ways to help us with those issues that arise. While this works for the most part, sometimes the subconscious mind does not work as well as it should. And this is where the common themes of Freudian Dreams come into play.
The unconscious mind is our own ego. It’s the part of us that knows what we really want, but when it comes to how we are going to get that, it often keeps our conscious ego in the dark. We may be afraid of the outcome of not getting what we want, but the unconscious mind does not care because it has no choice.
If you ever feel the pull of any of these themes in a dream, then it is definitely time to get into the Freudian Dreams. These types of dreams are very common and are often the precursor to a deeper problem that our subconscious mind is dealing with. By understanding these dreams, we can go in and help the unconscious mind get a handle on the underlying issue.
