I started reading Freud’s Interpretation of Dreams recently. I have a particular interest in dreams as I often have vivid ones. For a time I would wake myself up after dreaming and write down as much as I could remember. I would try to understand where they came from. I don’t do that any more, but last night I had a couple of dreams, whose images I can still conjure up in my waking state.
The image below is from my dream about a worm. It was shedding its skin. The skin turned into a hungry baby worm that went back into the shedding mother to feast on the eggs inside. YUCK! I’m sure Dr. Freud would have a field day with this one… Maybe I shouldn’t admit that I had this dream, but the image really stuck with me.
Undoubtedly I will uncover much more about the meaning of dreams of this type from The Interpretation of Dreams. Perhaps some of what I find will be relevant and revelational. Hopefully it won’t be too yucky.
