In order to understand the messages of the unconscious mind that produces your dreams you have to study the symbolic dream language. You must respect the meaning given by the unconscious mind to the dream images. Carl Jung discovered this meaning for you, and managed to simplify and clarify his method of dream interpretation.
Today you can easily understand the unconscious associations, which were invisible according to Carl Jung’s limited vision because he stopped his research at a certain point. I managed to detect the general meaning of the most important dream symbols, and discover the meaning of the other components of a dream based on the unconscious associations.
In order to easily translate the meaning of dreams you must follow the unconscious logic. The unconscious logic is based on wisdom and sanctity.
Each dream image has a meaning. When you learn the meaning of each image and you put all images together, you understand the hidden unconscious messages. This is like putting together various pieces of a puzzle.
The unconscious associations are not like the associations we make based on the logic of our ignorant conscience. For example, we associate water with rain. However, the unconscious associations are not based on the nature of an object, animal, or person, but on what each image represents based on the unconscious definition for this image.
All dream images have a symbolic meaning. What they represent is based on the unconscious logic, and it is reflected on the human history. For example, the apple represents wisdom in dreams. The apple is also a symbol that indicates wisdom for many different civilizations.
Therefore, the apple doesn’t represent a fruit in your dreams. It cannot be associated with an orange. The apple in dreams represents wisdom. Wisdom must be associated to wisdom, and not to a fruit.
I’m giving you a very simple example in order to teach you how to look at the dream images and how to understand the unconscious associations.
The rain in dreams represents a solution. However, too much water in a dream (like a flood) means superficiality, materialism, and lack of faith.
The rain is a positive dream symbol, while the excess of water is a negative dream symbol because the association between these two images doesn’t follow the logic of our conscience. The water of the rain and water in general terms have a different importance in your dreams.
Now, let’s translate the meaning of a dream where the rain, too much water, and an apple appear.
Nancy dreamt that she was observing the rain from her window, when a dangerous flood in her living room started covering the furniture. She didn’t know what to do, when she saw a white boat floating on the water. There was an apple on it.
At this point of the dream, she wakes up.
Nancy found the solution for a certain problem (rain). She is inside her psyche (house) observing the solution she found.
However, she doesn’t believe that there is any meaning beyond her material existence (flood).
Therefore, she cannot understand the importance of the solution she found (obvious conclusion according to the unconscious logic. Nancy is an under-developed primate who makes many mistakes in life because she is constantly influenced by her anti-conscience, and even her human conscience is one-sided.)
Even though she found an important solution she doesn’t believe in the divine providence (Even though the observes the rain, there is a flood in her house).
She must stop being materialistic and superficial and learn how to be wise (apple). Nothing happens by chance. There is a deeper meaning in her existence.
The white color represents purity and wisdom.
The boat indicates that the dreamer must make a long research and understand the content of her psyche.
The apple is on the white boat because Nancy will find wisdom (apple) when she will follow the wise guidance of the unconscious mind (white color) and she will make a long research inside her psyche through dream translation (boat).
As you can see, the unconscious messages are very clear, and the unconscious associations are quite comprehensible when we look at the dream images while knowing that they don’t represent a known person, an animal, a fruit, or an object. Each image has a symbolic meaning.
This is why the association between the white boat and the apple is logical. It follows the unconscious logic, and it is based on the dream language, which was created by the unconscious mind. The white color represents wisdom, like the apple.
This means that when you understand the unconscious logic and you learn the meaning of the most important dream symbols you can easily understand the meaning of all dreams and the unconscious associations. You will link all dream images without being based on your conscious logic and on what you think about these images in your daily life. You will associate the symbolic meaning of one image to the symbolic meaning of another image.
