Dreams have been objects of boundless fascination and mystery for humankind since the beginning of time.
These nocturnal vivid images seem to arise from some source other than our ordinary conscious mind.
They contain a mixture of elements from our own personal identity which we recognize as familiar along with a quality of `otherness’ in the dream images that carries a sense of the strange and eerie.
The bizarre and nonsensical characters and plots in dreams point to deeper meanings and contain rational and insightful comments on our waking situations and emotional experiences.
The ancients thought that dreams were messages from the gods. Today we know that they are messages from a deep source of wisdom and understanding within ourselves.
Every dream is a message from some deeper unconscious part of myself to the more conscious everyday part of myself expressed in a language that needs to be learned and understood.
The dream has been called the royal road to the unconscious. A modern way of saying that would be that the dream is the window to the soul.
