Dream Interpretation and Amplification
In his understanding of the psyche’s workings, Jung viewed the dream as a continuous form of communication from the unconscious Self to the conscious ego. These mysterious, sometimes baffling “messages,” when properly grasped, offer to the always limited consciousness profound and practical insights; that further the process of individuation.
