All great psychological thinkers agreed on one thing – that dreams are expressions of our deeper selves and that understanding our dreams can give us valuable insightthat we can use in our waking lives.”….the goal is always to find the relevance of the dream in the persons life in the present.” Our dreams have a logic of their own. In our dreams we sort out our feelings, make plans for action, and rehearse skills that we need. Sigmund Freud called dreams the “Royal Road” to the unconscious mind. CarlJung initially turned down an offer to write his famous book Man and his Symbols, until a deciphered dream showed him the importance of presenting his work to the general public.
