Mankind has pondered the meaning & origin of dreams for thousands, if not tens of thousands, of years. From fishermen to neurologists, students to psychologists, housewives to theologians, painters to historians and accountants to philosophers; across the world from end to end & through every segment of society there are people pondering their dreams morning after morning. Theories & thoughts abound, though virtually lacking facts & findings, our attempted exploration of the elusive dream world continues today.
Famed psychologist Sigmund Freud saw complex psychological meanings to all dreams, usually stemming from the subconscious dealing with past and/or current personal events of the individual. Personally, through experience, study & examination, I disagree that all dreams are linked (explained away) by psychology and/or conventional sciences. The same was felt by the contemporary rival of Freud, psychologist Carl Jung.
Jung believed that the majority of dreams were simply the result of the chaos which was the sleeping brain (i.e. they were natural result of processes within a super-complex organ and had no psychological meaning). Others he saw, like Freud, as housing psychological meanings arising from personal issues. And then there was another class of dreams according to Jung. These had meanings lying outside of the mainstreams. They were spiritual. These dreams, Jung stated, originated in the unconscious (part of the mind similar to the subconscious by Freud). He postulated that the Unconscious was linked to (or retained seeds from) what he called the Collective Unconscious, a metaphysical force housing primordial truths which was connected to each & every person. Jung showed how different people from separate walks of life, who had never met, would have dreams involving similar or identical foundations & symbols. ("Truth did not come into the world naked; rather it came in prototypes and images: the world will not accept it in any other form" -Gospel of Philip 67:9-12.) These mirrored his documented fundamental esoteric realities. Jung looked into the past to find further examples of these archetypes.
Many dreams need no interpretation as they lack any real meaning. However, others are of great importance which indeed require & deserve analysis. Such dreams do not only include symbols of universal meaning. There are those which disclose details desired to be made know. Then there are those where you are the vehicle of what is to come as a passive Psychic. The dreams foretell the future, however, you find yourself unable to decipher them. Such Psychic dreams may be about you or another, either way it is a need to know.
