Does It Matter What Dreams Mean?

     Do dreams have meaning? How do they really interpret what you are dreaming about? And really does it matter at all?

At the point when he first studied the dreams meaning he called the mind at sleep the subconscious. The part of our mind that never really made it into the light of day. But the unconscious itself was not really discovered by Freud, but several other doctors were brought to light by William James in a study of Psychology.

But moving on Freud would say that dreams one had were indeed a "royal road to the unconscious mind" These dreams according to Freud where repressed feelings. In almost all cases it would always be some feeling of sex that was being repressed.

Just because you dream of something bad one night, maybe you've beaten up a person who was nice. Or worse yet maybe in a dream you've killed a person who you shouldn't have. It doesn't mean you are a mass murderer waiting to break free. And it may not even mean that you have stress in your life that is unresolved. It could simply be what you last saw on TV, or read in a paper.

Look at Sigmund Freud, the "father of modern psychology", he felt all dreams were about sex. Yes he felt that every single dream could be figured out by some sort of repressed sexual feeling you were experiencing. One that you may not have even been aware off.

Dreams are an amazing thing, and some creative people will take these dreams good and bad alike and use them. Stephen King has probably had tons of dreams that have come out on the pages of his novels, and it's amazing. Or painters most likely have dreamt a few pictures up before.

The study of dreams has always been fascinating but it depends on what field of psychology you side with on how they can be interpreted. But no one should ever really be afraid of a dream, or whether it will come true or not.

In closing, dreams are great to have, and can be used for stories and paintings if you are creative enough to do so. But as far as Freud or someone else being right as far as the meanings of what you have dreamt. Well shouldn't it be more up to the person who dreams to decide what it may actually mean? May you have many dreams that will keep you entertained for several years to come!
