7 Common Dream Symbols: Find Out What Your Dreams Mean

Carl Jung, a well-known psychotherapist, claims that our dreams represent a form of communication between the unconscious and yourself. Moreover, dreams are a window to the conscious world.  

A group of scientists from the ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratory in Japan, who used brain scans to find out the meaning of dreams, supported Jung’s theory. They found out that we observe the real world and dreams in the same way. Our dreams are closely connected to our everyday activities.
