While many theories exist to explain why we dream no one yet fully understands the purpose, of dreams, let alone how to interpret the meaning of dreams.
Dreams can be mysterious, but understanding the meaning of our dreams can be downright baffling.
Yet it is extremely important that we are able to understand and analyze our dreams because they have implications.
The Basis for our Interpretation is key if we desire a clear and very useful interpretation.
What is the Psychoanalysis of Dreams.
Psychoanalytic dream interpretation is a subdivision of dream interpretation as well as a subdivision of psychoanalysis pioneered by “Sigmund Freud” in the early twentieth century.
Psychoanalytic dream interpretation is the process of explaining the meaning of the way the unconscious thoughts and emotions are processed in the mind during sleep.
Who was Sigmund Freud
He Was a German born Sigismund Schlomo Freud; From 6 May 1856 – 23 September 1939)
He was an Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis which is a clinical method for evaluating and treating pathologies in the psyche through dialogue between a patient and a psychoanalyst.
He also propounded the theories of;
(the primitive and instinctual part of the mind that contains sexual and aggressive drives and hidden memories,
ego and super-ego
(is the realistic part that mediates between the desires of the id and super ego)
(the complex of emotions aroused in a young child, typically around the age of four, by an unconscious sexual desire for the parent of the opposite sex and wish to exclude the parent of the sale
Psychoanalysis of Dream is the investigation of repressed feelings that can be expressed in our dreams.
Psychoanalytic theory believes that feelings are repressed.
PSYCHOLOGIST AND DREAMS.
Psychologists offer many reasons for dreaming.
Some suggest its simply to clear away useless memories from the previous day and enter important ones into long-term storage.
For example, if you have a dream about President Trump swimming with manatees it may be that your brain is in the process of removing a piece of news about the presidential administration and endangered species.
On the other hand, many psychologists, especially those involved in therapy, have seen the value of dream analysis. Thus, while dreams may help sort the information in our brains, they may also help us consider information that we ignore when we’re awake.
So, perhaps during the day, we focused on tasks that had nothing to do with the news about the presidential administration and endangered species, but then we worked through how we felt about the information during our dreams that night.
shared some commonalities with Freud, he felt that dreams were more than an expression of repressed wishes. Jung suggested that dreams revealed both the personal and collective unconscious and believed that dreams serve to compensate for parts of the psyche that are underdeveloped in waking life.
According to Hall’s theory, interpreting dreams requires knowing:
•The actions of the dreamer within the dream.
•The objects and figures in the dream.
•The interactions between the dreamer and the characters in the dream.
•The dream’s setting, transitions, and outcome
Hall implies that The ultimate goal of dream interpretation is not to understand the dream, however, but to understand the dreamer.
Research by Hall revealed that the traits people exhibit while they awake are the same as those expressed in dreams.
Is a prominent dream researcher who studied with Calvin Hall at the University of Miami.
In large-scale studies on the content of dreams, Domhoff has found that dreams reflect the thoughts and concerns of a dreamer’s waking life.
Domhoff suggests a neurocognitive model of dreams in which the process of dreaming results from neurological processes and a system of schemas.
Dream content, he suggests, results from these cognitive processes.
Types of Dreams As Described by Psychologists:
1) Daydream – Daydreaming is classified as a level of consciousness between sleep and wakefulness.
2) False Awakening Dreams: I know this has happened to me several times in the morning. …
3)Lucid: A lucid dream is a type of dream in which the dreamer becomes aware that they are dreaming while dreaming
DREAM IS MORE THAN PSYCHOLOGY AND PHILOSOPHY
DREAM IS SPIRITUAL and Mankind is a Spirit ,having a Soul and living in a body.(1 Thessalonians 5:23)
It is safe to conclude that the Dream life have more spiritual implication than suppression and repression of feelings which is at the seat of the soul realm.
It is also safe to conclude that the reason we are unable to find the purpose of our Dream is because we have not looked into the realm of the Spirit.
Looking away from the spiritual angle of the dream amounts to scratching the surface. And we can never arrive at the true interpretation of dreams.
Looking into the realm of the spirit is looking outside the man.
The Bible clearly confirm to us the sources and the purpose of our Dreams.
GOD IS THE SOURCE OF DIVINE DREAMS.
“‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams;
And he said, “Hear my words: If there is a prophet among you, I the Lord make myself known to him in a vision; I speak with him in a dream.
For God speaks in one way, and in two, though man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men, while they slumber on their beds, then he opens the ears of men and terrifies them with warnings, that he may turn man aside from his deed and conceal pride from a man; he keeps back his soul from the pit, his life from perishing by the sword.
SATAN DOES ATTACK THROUGH DREAMS.
Matthew 27:19 KJV
When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.”
DREAMS CAN BE AS A RESULT OF MULTITUDE OF BUSINESS.
Ecclesiastes 5:3 KJV
“For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.”
DEEPER PURPOSE OF DREAMS:
Scripture records at least twenty dreams that were used by God for a variety of purposes.
1)Dreams can warn a person not to do something (Genesis 20:3, 31:24, Matthew 27:19).
2)They can convey what will happen either in the near or distant future (Gen. 37:5, 9, 40:8 – 19, 41:1 – 7, 15 – 32, Daniel 2, 7).
3)They can also convey a spiritual truth (Gen. 28:12),
4)used to confirm a promise (Gen. 28:13 – 14)
5)Vehicle to, offer encouragement (Gen. 28:15).
6)They can inform someone or a group to do something (Gen. 31:11 – 13, Matthew 1:20 – 23, 2:12 – 13, 19, 22).
7)They can become a weapon of destruction of the enemies. (Judges 7:13 – 15),
8)Can be used by God to communicate a gift from God (1Kings 3:5)
9)Dream can warn a person they will receive punishment for their sins (Daniel 4).

Daniel 2:3 KJV
