The river is a very important dream symbol that the dreamer will see after passing through psychotherapy based on scientific dream interpretation.
It never appears in dreams if the dreamer is not well prepared to face it, because the river represents a big challenge.
At the other side of the river, he or she will find his wild conscience, which remains in a primitive condition, without any evolution.
The only possibility one has to see the river in a dream before passing through dream therapy and translating their dreams for a certain period of time, is when the river appears in a dream as an indication that the dreamer will have to face it some day.
This means that he has to learn what exists on the other side without trying to avoid it, and at the same time, that he is going to be in contact with a dangerous part of his brain and psyche. The anti-conscience, his primitive wild side, is too powerful and violent, like all wild animals.
However, only after crossing the river will he understand how he can always control his behavior, without being influenced by the absurdity of his wild conscience, which keeps trying to invade the human side of his conscience and destroy his capacity to think, have intuitions, feel and sense reality.
The anti-conscience tries to destroy the human side of your conscience that controls your behavior because it wants to be free, so that it may be only an animal. It wants to be violent, without respecting anyone. The human side of your conscience has to tame this beast, and transform it into a positive part of your human personality.
You, the conscious human being, can attain psychical perfection and wisdom. You can find peace and happiness, while your animal side can only lead you to terror and despair, because it is absurd.
The anti-conscience is responsible for the existence of all mental illnesses, since all of them are originated by its absurdity.
When you care about the meaning of your dreams, writing them down, translating them according to the scientific method, and following the wise guidance of the unconscious mind contained in the dream messages, you discover how to fight against your negative side, and how you can overcome all your emotional problems, building courage and self-confidence.
The huge part of your personality that remains in a primitive condition has an independent functionalism. You are not aware of what it thinks, while it can read your mind and interfere in your thoughts, exactly because it is huge, while your human conscience is too small.
After crossing the river you start noticing its existence and the unconscious mind shows you how you can read its mind, the same way it reads yours.
You cannot influence the anti-conscience’s thoughts the same way it influences yours, but you can completely eliminate its poisonous influence, if you precisely follow the guidance of your unconscious doctor.
