“'Sometimes I would have dreams of people trying to get into my house. In my dream people would be screaming and yelling at me to get in, they would do anything from kicking the door to threatening me. I would be so terrified on the other side, sometimes the door wouldn’t be locked and they would be trying to push the door open and I would give all my strength on the other side to not let them inside. But the thing is, when that would happen I would either yell or call the police. Sometimes I would just ask Jesus to help me, all of a sudden the dream would vanish or I would wake up. Maybe there is something or someone is trying to tell me about my life.”

Rebecca, 22

Introduction to Sigmund Freud’s Theory on dreams

Freud believed the dream to be composed of two parts - the manifest and the latent content. The manifest content can be thought of as what a person would remember as soon as they wake – what they would consciously describe to someone else when recalling the dream. Freud suggested that the manifest content possessed no meaning whatsoever because it was a disguised representation of the true thought underlying the dream. A fascinating website with lots of information.

The philosophy of dreams  - by Sri Swami Sivananda

The analysis of dreams and their cause by psychoanalysts are defective. They maintain that the cause of dream creation lies in the suppressed desires of the dreamer. Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj is an Advaita Vedantin of Sri Sankara’s School, he is unique in that in his life and teachings he synthesises the highest idealism and dynamic practical life. His “Divine Life” is ideal life, ideal and divine only because it is possible to live it here and now.
