If you're serious, I'm very flattered and I thank you for that
compliment! I'm aware of how you feel about interpreting other
people's dreams, and I respect your position on that issue. I love
the puzzle involved in a dream, and I have a passion for the
interpretation. I am a devout follower of Carl Jung as I feel his
theories make more sense. Freud just got on my nerves with his
blanket explanations of everything being sexual or related to
our "incest wish". And if anyone reading this is a Freud follower,
please do not be offended. This is just my OWN opinion, and we all
know about opinions. It's just like anything else that one has an
opinion on. You may love Kielbasa (or however you spell it), but I
hate it. That doesn't mean you're wrong in loving it, nor does it
mean I'm right in hating it. It's just our individual opinions. But
I got FAR away from my point. Jung believed in the collective
unconscious, and after my experience with my own dreams and helping
friends and family with theirs, I have come to believe in it also.
Therefore, I believe that there is a certain amount of interpretation
that is universal and can be seen whether you know someone or not,
but the individual details and meaning are particular to the dreamer
and CANNOT be seen by anyone else. You'll notice my position on that
by the amount of questions I put into my interpretation. You'll also
notice that I asked about her reaction to the interpretation because
if she does not get an "Ah-hah" feeling, then I was WAY off base!
Wow! This early in the morning and I had that much to say! Sorry.
I didn't mean to bore you.
- I, too, feel it's important to ask question when interpreting
dreams...often just a simple one will trigger a memory that helps the
dreamer make sense of it all...
You know, I have just read a little of Jung...I just can't get
through dream psychology books like that...I just sort of 'do' it. I
think that using a little of 'this' with a little of 'that' mixed
with some of the 'other thing' usually helps create an overall view
of the theme of the dream.
Yeah, it's too early ... I have to go to work now, (boo!).
