dream lore
Dream Lore
  • Classical approaches to dream analysis
    • Used by Freud in his Psychoanalytic approach to psychology
dream lore1
Dream Lore
  • Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, Hebrews, Muslims, & Assyrians:
    • Saw dreams as messages from the supernatural beings or gods.
  • Hindus
    • dreams are prophetic, and the timing of the dream will indicate how soon the prophecy will come to pass
  • Japanese
    • dreams are sought as visions to help answer questions that are plaguing the waking self. Usually the answers come from ancestral spirits.
  • Australian Aborigines
    • The spirits from underground rise and wander in the land of the living, and when they pass through a mortal being, a "greater vision" is momentarily acquired… this would be what we call a dream
  • North American Indians
    • Hidden wishes of the soul are addressed and fulfilled in dreams. Visions can also be sought after in the hopes of answering a question or resolving a conflict.

dream terminology
Dream Terminology
  • Dream censorship-
    • the issues of a dream are omitted to hide the true meaning
  • Symbolism-
    • the manifestation of an object, idea, or feeling, in some "concrete" form that is in the dream.
  • Condensation-
    • taking large issues, or more than one issue, and representing it is a dream with only one image
    • i.e. fearing your new girlfriend, missing your mother and personality fixations revolving around an oral fixation may be represented in a dream with just a baby with a pacifier
  • Displacement-
    • replacement of issues (conflicts) by something remote or nothing
    • i.e. a big issue is only a small element of a dream, while a small issue seems to get all the attention

Dream Terminology
  • Use the dream terminology to identify various components of your dream and what corresponding terms relate to them

Dream Recall Techniques
  • You have to want to remember
  • Reread over past dreams
  • Be patient and do not force a memory
  • Keep a journal
  • Keep a dream journal for the next 4 days in which you write down every dream that you remember from the night before and what you think it means.
