Bad dreams indicate behavioral abnormalities and erroneous ideas. If you keep having bad dreams, this means that you keep making many mistakes in life.
The unconscious mind that produces your dreams is your natural doctor. It sends you bad dreams when you are making mistakes that affect your mental stability in order to open your eyes. If you want to stop having bad dreams you must follow dream therapy, so that you may stop doing what generates emotional problems and sad situations.
Today this is very simple. I simplified Carl Jung’s method of dream interpretation for you.
All dreams contain very important messages, even bad dreams or nightmares. When you understand the hidden messages of the unconscious mind, you understand the mistakes you are making. You also learn how to correct these mistakes and do only what is positive for you.
Don’t be inconsequential. Never relax after having a nightmare for thinking that ‘it was only a bad dream’ (and not something that really happened in your daily life). Your dreams contain serious messages that protect your mental health and your safety. They are alarms sent by the unconscious mind in order to protect your sanity.
Your dreams reflect real psychological problems or sad life situations that will happen in the future. Or, they reflect the attitude you have today and the problems that are torturing you now, while you ignore their negative effect.
The unconscious mind criticizes your behavior in the dream images, showing you the way you react before various life challenges. For example, I will mention the dreams of a patient who kept dreaming that she forgot and lost something important somewhere.
She forgot her purse, her coat, her glasses, etc. in various dreams. After forgetting and losing something important for her in a dream, she had to face many problems looking for what she had lost, but without finding the object in the end.
These bad dreams were showing her that she has a negligent attitude in life.
Her purse represents her feminine identity. A woman will see that she lost her purse in a dream when she will be seduced by a man because he will force her to accept having a relationship with him. The dream about the lost purse was showing to the dreamer that she must be careful; otherwise she will get involved with the wrong person.
The fact that she forgot her coat somewhere in the dream and ended up losing it in the end means she lost protection. The coat is acts as protection against the bad weather. In dreams the coat represents any kind of protection.
For example, the dreamer could have lost her capacity to be diplomatic. Diplomacy is a social protection. The dreamer cannot be rude and reveal her personal opinion without caring about how others will feel after listening to her words. She must pay attention to various details and protect her social image.
The fact that she forgot her glasses means that she cannot see many things. Her vision is limited. She must open her eyes and pay attention to various details that she keeps neglecting.
Each object in a dream has a symbolic meaning and represents one of the dreamer’s mistakes.
If you are making many mistakes like her, you will have many bad dreams reflecting your erroneous behavior. In order to stop having bad dreams, you have to stop making mistakes.
Even if you don’t believe that you make mistakes like this dreamer, you surely do. Your conscience is under-developed and one-sided. You are not able to analyze all aspects of your reality. You concentrate your attention only on the aspects that your favorite psychological function prefers.
In case you are a rationalist, you will completely ignore your feelings, which are the opposite of thoughts. Thoughts and feelings are contradictory psychological functions that cannot work together, unless you pass through dream therapy and learn how to develop all your psychological functions at the same time.
This is what you should do, without a doubt. Dream therapy will help you completely develop all your psychological functions and acquire total consciousness.
Only when you pay attention to your feelings, to your sensations, and to your intuition the same way you pay attention to your thoughts, will you find balance. Only then will you have a total vision of the reality you are analyzing.
You will then be able to objectively judge your reality, while paying attention to all its aspects. Therefore, you won’t make mistakes like you do now.
You’ll stop having bad dreams. Your mind will open, and you’ll become a wise human being.
Your dreams will have a totally different meaning. They will reflect your progress, instead of reflecting your mistakes. You will be able to make very important future predictions after seeing meaningful dream warnings. Instead of dreaming about dangerous situations and bad events, you’ll see positive dream symbols, and learn many things you ignore.
