The Psychological Value of Dreams
By considering dream figures as aspects of ourselves and the dream story
as an expression of our inner thoughts, we can begin to know ourselves
By looking at our dreams we can discover our strengths and our
weaknesses, we can find the missing parts of ourselves and also find the
rejected parts, the inner enemies and the seeds of prejudice. This
discovery can point the way to psychological development.
Increased self-awareness fosters self-empowerment, self-esteem and a
feeling of self-responsibility.
