Theories on the Meaning of Dreams
Freud believed that dreams were a way for our unconscious mind to process the events of the day. So, if you dream about acupuncture, it could be your mind’s way of processing something that happened to you during the day. Alternatively, Jung believed that dreams are a way for us to access our collective unconscious. So, the acupuncture dream could be a way for you to connect with a deeper part of yourself.
Sigmund Freud’s theory
Sigmund Freud the Austrian neurologist who is considered the founder of psychoanalysis, believed that dreams are a reflection of our unconscious desires. He believed that the content of a dream is symbolic and that it can be interpreted to reveal what we are repressing.
For example, if you dream about acupuncture, Freud would say that this symbolizes a repressed desire for physical or emotional healing. Alternatively, it could represent a repressed fear or anxiety about being poked with needles.
Carl Jung’s theory
In his book The Interpretation of Dreams, Sigmund Freud proposed that the content of dreams is related to wish-fulfillment. For example, a person who dreamt of being pursued by a dangerous animal may be symbolic of repressed sexual desires. Freud believed that dreams were the manifestation of unconscious desires and urges.
Carl Jung, a contemporary of Freud, disagreed with his interpretation of dreams. Jung believed that dreams were not just wish-fulfillment, but were also a way for the unconscious to communicate with the conscious mind. According to Jung, dreams could be categorized into two types: first, there are what he called “big” dreams; these are rarer and tend to be more powerful and influential. They are usually symbolical and often have a prophetic quality about them. Second are the more common “little” dreams; these are more mundane and typically deal with day-to-day concerns.
