Dreaming is a covert projection of wishes

Dreaming is a secret projection of wishes

Why can dreams, the projection of subconscious minds, reflect things that people care about more, rather than things that are completely irrelevant? This is because dreams are secret projections of people's wishes. The discovery that dreams are caused by wishes can be traced back to Duke Zhou, who said, "Dreamers are signs of the heart." Among the Chinese people, there is also a saying like "think about it every day and dream about it at night". The interpretation of dreams is much later in foreign countries than in China. Freud said in "The Interpretation of Dreams" that in 1868, the doctor Bi Xuanxu divided dreams into three categories: dreams from gods, a mental image naturally caused by one's own mind, and a kind of dream caused by one's own mind. An image transformed from a wish. In 1913, Sterk also noticed examples of wish-fulfillment in Schnell's collection. In 1861, Chenell wrote: "The dreamer, because the emotional weight of the wish is so obvious in his heart, that the dreamer can use his imagination to achieve its realization in one fell swoop." Chenell described this at the time. Class dreams are classified as "emotional dreams", and in his classification, there are two types of dreams, "erotic dreams" between men and women and "bad temper dreams". There is no doubt that Schnell has seen here the importance of "wish" in dreams. Indeed, from the perspective of dream interpretation, dreams are secret projections of people's wishes.

In the summer of 1896, Freud and his family went hiking in Holstatt. That summer, they lived on a hill near Ossee Lake. When the weather was clear, they could see the Dachberg Mountain. With a telescope, they could clearly see the Simone hut on the mountain. And Freud's children also like to look at this telescope every day for some reason. Before setting off on the hike, Freud explained to the children that their destination, Holstatt, was at the foot of the Dachberg. The children were extremely excited about this. When entering the Jess Thousand Valley from Holstatt, the children were even more delighted with the changing scenery. But his 5-year-old son gradually became impatient. Whenever he saw a mountain, he would ask: "Is that the Dach Mountain?" Freud's answer was always: "No, that's still under the Dach Mountain." The hill." After asking this question several times, the son became silent and refused to climb the stone steps with his father to visit the waterfall. Unexpectedly, the next morning, his son ran over in high spirits and told Freud: "Last night I dreamed that we walked to Simone's cabin."

Freud then understood that when he first said he wanted to go to the Dachberg, his son had fully thought that he would be able to walk over the mountains from Holstatt to the Simonyi cabin that he longed for every day with his telescope. . But once he learned that he could only end at the waterfall at the foot of the mountain, he was so disappointed and dissatisfied. But the dream compensated him. At that time, Freud tried to ask again about the meaning of this dream.As for the details, the son only had one sentence: "You only need to climb the stone steps to get there in 6 hours." But the rest of the content was blank.

Because children's mental activities are simpler than adults, their dreams are simpler. Just as studying the structural development of lower animals can help us understand the structure of higher animals, studying the psychology of children can help us better understand the psychology of adults. Children's dreams are often very simple wish fulfillments, and therefore more boring than adults' dreams, but they provide priceless proof that the essence of dreams is the fulfillment of wishes.

Some people will argue that dreams are not necessarily uniform wish fulfillments. People also have nightmares, which are "anxiety dreams" that are so intolerable that they wake you up. We also often find that children are so frightened that they wake up crying and screaming when sleeping. This means that children also have nightmares, so dreams may not all be the fulfillment of wishes. In fact, some observers believe that painful and ominous content in dreams is far more common than wish fulfillment. Two women, Uid and Hallam, used their own dreams to statistically show that the dreams contained more disappointment and frustration. They found that 58% of dreams were unpleasant, while only 28.6% had pleasant content. From this point of view, it seems that the example of "anxiety dream" is enough to overturn all the dreams mentioned before, and even to denounce the theory of wish fulfillment as nonsense. However, it is not difficult to refute the above seemingly plausible objections. Because the interpretation of dreams is not based on the superficial content of the dream, we interpret it by exploring the hidden thought content in the dream. If those painful and terrifying dreams are carefully analyzed, who would dare to say that they cannot contain the meaning of wish fulfillment? Why do those dreams that seem unrelated at first glance need to go through layers of Only by peeling off the cocoon can we see the meaning of wish fulfillment? Because "dreams need to be interpreted" is a characteristic of dreams, which is also called "dream modification phenomenon."

When a person climbs mountains and wades through rivers, overcomes thorns and thorns, and finally climbs to an open space with a vast view, and then finds that the road is smooth all the way down, he had better stop and think carefully about his next step. Okay? Similarly, on the way to learn "dream interpretation", you should also do this at this time. Now, we are discovering that glimmer of hope. Dreams are not groundless, meaningless, absurd, or the product of a part of consciousness being lethargic and a small part of consciousness waking up from sleep. It is a completely meaningful spiritual phenomenon. In fact, it is a projection of desire. It can be regarded as a continuation of mental activity in a waking state. It is produced by highly intricate intellectual activity. Dreams can guide our inner spiritual activities and correct the concepts we hold during the day.

We have discovered that dreams are the projection of wishes. All dreams have their own meaning and spiritual value. However, the meaning of every dream is not the same. Our first dream may be the fulfillment of a wish, the second dream may be an insight into hidden worries, and the third dream may be a kind of self-consciousness.I reflected that the fourth dream was just the awakening of memories. Some of the "wishes" represented by dreams are unabashed and extremely obvious, but some dreams represent very hidden wishes.

A man ate pickles for dinner, and he would wake up thirsty at night. But before "waking up", there is often a dream with the same content - he is drinking water. He was drinking water from a large bowl. The taste was as delicious as drinking ice water that was cool to the bone with a cracked throat. Then he woke up with a start and realized that he really wanted to drink water.

The cause of this dream was the thirst that the person felt after waking up. This feeling gave rise to the wish to drink water, and the dream told him that it had fulfilled this wish, so that the dream had its function. If a person sleeps well at ordinary times, he will not be easily disturbed by the body's needs; if he can use this dream of drinking water to alleviate thirst, the person will not wake up thirsty. This is such a "convenient dream", in which dreams replace actions and satisfy people's inner desires.

A young lady has been unable to participate in social activities for a long time because she has been in an isolation ward all year round to take care of her child with an infectious disease. One night, she had a dream that her son was recovering. She was with a large group of writers and poets, including Li Bai, Lu Xun, and Wilde. These people were very friendly and kind to her and comforted her. In the dream, the faces of these people were exactly the same as the portraits in her collection. Li Bai, because the portraits circulated in ancient times, she was not familiar with his appearance, but he looked like the first person from the outside world to enter this ward for disinfection in a long time. Shortly after the dream, her child became terminally ill and died, and the woman's life fell into sorrow.

Obviously, this dream reflects the woman's desire to return to normal social life, so it appears in the dream as a gathering with writers and poets. At the same time, this is also a prophetic dream. As a mother who is with her child day and night, she subconsciously knows that her child is hopeless, so she will dream about writers comforting her and people disinfecting her - because she is about to leave this place. A ward.

It seems that these examples are enough to show that no matter how complex the dream is, most of it can be interpreted as the fulfillment of wishes, and most of the content can even be seen without concealment. For the most part, they are short dreams, in sharp contrast to those complex dreams that require special mental study by the dream interpreter. Although true prophetic dreams are very rare, as long as we are willing to further explore these briefest dreams, we will find that it is really worth it, so that we can realize the true meaning of our hearts. eager.
