“Dreaming is a part of life. Everyone dreams. They dream for as long as they live. Even unborn babies dream in their mother’s womb. Dreams are the roots for the state yet to come. Dream is an event that takes place in the world of mind when the whole physical body has gone to rest. Dreams are the gateway to an inner world, a world just as real as the one outside. Dreams inform us in a visual language about repressed experiences and other process of the unconscious. Dreams images and activities, however strange and ever meaningless they may seem, show symbolic structures. Dreams became psychotherapy’s most important aid in exploration of the unconscious”.   (Source:
