Why we need to listen to our dreams

By | June 6, 2022

In his book, The Undiscovered Self, Dr. Carl G. Jung affirmed that the very survival of humanity may well depend upon bridging the gap between the conscious and unconscious aspects of the human psyche. On the same lines, Sigmund Freud, proves in his authoritative book, Interpretation of dreams, that there is a psychological technique which makes it possible to interpret dreams. If this procedure is employed as intended, every dream reveals itself as assignable point in the mental activities of waking life!

Although vast research is underway, around the world, on sleep, very little is known about it. Dreams and dreaming are even further away from our scientific understanding and yet every living being is known to dream. The saying – dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you (author unknown) – underscores the importance of why we need to listen to our dreams.

If you start talking to people around you, you are bound to run into someone who has had profound understanding of oneself by listening to his or her dreams. If you reflect back you may be surprised that at many occasions, you yourself have benefited from listening to what your dreams have been trying to tell you. These would be situations where the solution to a problem you have been struggling with appears out of nowhere; or, you wake up with a strong gut feeling about something.

Majority of folks dismiss dreams as chatter of the mind at night. Mostly because they do not remember the dream or cannot make any sense of it. This ignorance is taking us away from realizing our true selves and potential.

In the modern world where the noise and rhetoric of daily grind grows louder, there is a growing need to start reconnecting with our soul. Dreams are a pathway to it and we better start listening to them.
