Awakening latent Dreams!


According to Freud, every dream represents a wish fulfillment. Dreams are representative of the imaginary fulfillment of a wish or impulse in early childhood before such wishes have been repressed.

Sometimes you meet someone and your gut makes you judgemental immediately, without knowing anything about people.To Freud, dreams were all about wish fulfillment.

The manifest content of the dream masked the true wishes and desires of the dreamer, which were revealed in the latent content.

In the ‘falling’ dream example, Freud might have said that the act of falling represented giving into a sexual urge.

like someone is “Not the Sharpest Tool in the Shed”

Meaning: 

Someone who isn’t witty or sharp, but rather,

they are ignorant, unintelligent, or senseless.

It is a daunting task to go deeper and find the latent dreams of such people. They are dreamers too, and they have a subconscious. Sometimes it gives them messages, signals but they are so subtle, soft and noiseless that people tend to forget them let alone take notice of them.

Freud believed that the content of dreams is related to wish fulfillment and suggested that dreams have two types of contentmanifest content and latent content. The manifest content is the actual literal subject matter of the dream while the latent content is the underlying meaning of these symbols

Whatever a Mentor can do to Awaken the Dreamer’s Dreams it remains that

Money Doesn’t Grow On Trees

Meaning: 

Suggests that money is a resource that must be earned and is not one that’s easily acquired.

  1. I agree with Freud somewhat. I would add another dimension to his assessment though. It’s not the physical child that dreams are addressing, but the spiritual child. Dreams are directioneering in intent in the same way in which an adult would sense their child’s need and try to explain it ahead of time. But in this case it is the Infinite moving upon the soul to grow.

    Most dreams, as mentioned, are in metaphoric language. The scenes depicted form common metaphors or meanings unique to the soul having the dream. It can be decoded according to your inner personal metaphoric language.

    Why do dreams present such fantastic views and landscapes? Because they are telling us something beyond ourselves. There are always hints to where we could be and what we might be doing. Dreams are the bridge between the physical and the spiritual world. The instructions are given to help us play out in this current life the keys for the life to come. Few realize this, and even fewer get there.
