Sleep: how to interpret our dreams and nightmares?

In let’s talk again, the unreleased podcast of the show Let’s talk together, Paul Delair and Caroline Dublanche return with a clear head to the testimonies heard in the program broadcast each evening on RTL. In one of the episodes, it is about dreams, nightmares and their meanings.

In the issue of September 5, Régine confided in doing very scary dreams in which she sees dead people. These nightmares started after the sudden death of his sister, when she was a child. Régine no longer knows how to cope with her nocturnal anxieties who ruin his life.

“There are dreams that make us keep this tone often a little scary or oppressive throughout the day. So there may be something that needs to be expressed”, explains Caroline Dublanche. “Freud said that the dream is the guardian of sleep. Finally, it allows a lot to digest our emotions, to free ourselves from fears. It cleans the mind a bit. And then sometimes there are dreams like that, which really send us a message from the unconscious”, she continues.

Our unconscious advances masked

“And in psychoanalysis, dreams are a material in their own right to go further in the analysis. But, is the interpretation (of a dream, editor’s note), it is as simple as what the can we find on the Internet, for example?” asks Paul Delair. “Especially not, because our unconscious is clever, he shuffles the cards, he advances masked”, replies Caroline Dublanche without appeal.

“Freud and Jung (Swiss doctor and psychiatrist), even though they had a different interpretation of dreams, said it was the royal road which led to knowledge of the unconscious in psychic life. Pay attention to all the books, they are very numerous and it’s tempting (…) but, our unconscious is facetious“, warns Caroline Dublanche.

Dreams are more complicated than that to interpret

“Dreams are also imbued with what we have been able to experience, perceive, feel, have as information during the day and sometimes with a personality that is not particularly sympathetic to us”, adds Caroline Dublanche.

If you happen to dream, for example, that you are making love with a political figure, it is not necessarily linked to sexuality. “It can ultimately highlight a part of us that we repress, which is more linked to a need for success, for power”, she specifies. This political personality of the dream can represent “this part of us that we do not really assume and that we would like to have and possess, like fluency in public or success”, dissects the psychologist of Let’s talk together.

“And a recurring dream leads us to think about what is, about the difficulties we are going through, a period of our life that is also tormented (…) But one day, we don’t do it anymore and that means that there is something in us who is who is ruleappeased”, concludes the psychologist of Let’s talk together.
