A Dream is a sequence of images


DREAMS

A Dream is a sequence of images, predominantly visual in character, which are experienced during sleep. A dream has commonly one or more scenes, several characters in addition to the dreamer, and a sequence of action &interaction usually involving the dreamer. It is like a motion picture or a dramatic production in which the dreamer is both a participant and an observer. The images of a dream are projections of mind. A projection is a representation of what is in the mind. Dreams, are in fact, creative expressions of the human mind .They tell us what is going on in a mind of a person. The language of dreams consists of pictures which are concrete representations of the mind ideas. What kind of conceptions are expressed by dreams? There is the whole world of the personal , the intimate, the emotional & conflictful, and it is this world of ideas out of which dreams are formed. A dream is a personal document,  a letter to oneself. In the first place dreams reveal what we really think of our selves when the mask of waking life is removed. These self conceptions are important because what a person thinks about himself has a great influence upon how he behaves. If a person thinks he is a  failure, the chances are that he will try to live up to this image of himself and be a failure. If he thinks he has done some immoral act, his life will be full feelings of guilt, even if he tries to justify himself to others. Dreams also reveal how the dreamer conceives  of others people. During sleep it is not uncommon for impulses that are kept in check during waking life to express themselves in dreams. Many are unpleasant, even terrifying as in the case of night mares. The dreamer is being chased by a man with a knife, a lion about to spring on him, the house is on fire, he is drowning or he is arrested and put in a prison. These are all punishment dreams. The dreamer feeling guilty for a misdeed in finding himself punished. Everyone has problems and everyone tries to do something about them. The dreamer should be interpreted as a whole, because it reflects an interconnected network of ideas in the mind of the dreamer. By analyzing a dream sequence once arrives at a more comprehensive and more coherent view of the conceptual  system and the subconscious contents of a persons.
