Freud believed that when we sleep, the Ego's defences are lowered and the repressed material comes through to awareness in distorted form.
Dreams provide valuable insight into individuals desires and conflicts (this is Freud's interpretation, but every psychologist/psychiatric had his own idea, for example Jung had different ideas regarding the meaning of dreams)
During the day, our life is controlled by the Ego, our conscious mind, which hardly hide a lot of information about ourself which are considered unacceptable and they could ruin our self image.
How many times have you had nightmares?
Well, when I was a child I had at least 5 nightmares a week for a certain period, but I used to say that I was an happy chiald...
Nightmares shows us our fear, bad experiences we have lived in past and parts of our personality our Ego doesn't accept. It's important to write down this dreams and try to face what we don't want to see when we are awake 🙈.
MANIFEST CONTENT:what we see in our dreams
A door, other people, a house and every other things we can see in our dreams is part of the manifest content, that we can easily understand because we know it.
LATENT CONTENT:the meaning behind what we dream
Every object we dream has a meaning, every person is a part of our personality with which we come in conflict, every situation and everything that we dream has to be interpreted because it has a hidden meaning.
Latent content can be analysed with a professionist who knows us and it's trained for this task.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
