Meaning of dreams

Dreams are a reflection of our past, our present, and what we will become in the future.

The symbolic representation of who we are

The dream is a direct reflection of who we are, both on a conscious and unconscious level. It speaks to us symbolically of our multiple facets and inner personalities that we have built over time. However, a major part of our feelings and behaviors come from our unconscious. 

The latter is in fact made up of an immense baggage of memories, of memories, accumulated over time, and which are likely to be reactivated at any moment. These memories can be of all kinds: aggression, joy, jealousy, love, poverty, anxiety, etc. All kinds of actions, emotions and thoughts that are part of our being and that sometimes come from far away.

Meeting our multiple unconscious personalities

Over time, we have sometimes developed ways of being, feeling, thinking, acting, which constitute so many facets and more or less conscious tendencies of our being. This is why behaviors that we do not recognize as being ours can resurface sometimes. Our preferences, our temperament, our talents, our fears and even our way of saying "I love you" are determined by our past experiences.

Access to our memories

Day after day, in the course of the situations that we experience, these memories manifest themselves in the form of states of mind or states of consciousness that can last a few seconds, a few minutes, a few hours, or even a whole week. The situations trigger the states of consciousness from the recorded memories.

The reactivation of our past memories

Memory works by instant recall. An object or a person that we see, a perfume in the air or music playing on the radio awaken a whole network of memories inside us, almost all of which are unconscious. The small triggering element plunges us into states whose magnitude often surprises us, so much so that the emotion is disproportionate to the external situation that we live.

Our dreams materialize and continually create our realities.

All of our dreams materialize at one level or another. For example, if we dreamed of a beautiful sunny meadow, the next day we would feel infused with a beautiful sense of fulfillment. But if, on the contrary, we dream of walking in the alleys of a poor neighborhood, the next day we will feel poor and sad. One will experience the state of consciousness symbolized by the images of the dream. This is how dreams can manifest and materialize in our lives. Thus, dreams inform us in a coded way of what we have thought and done in the past, how what we think and do in the present affects our life today and activates what will happen to us tomorrow, if we do not change our ways of thinking and being.
