Never apply any theory, but always ask the patient how he feels about his dream images.
For dreams are always about a particular problem of the individual about which he has a wrong conscious judgment.
The dreams are the reaction to our conscious attitude in the same way that the body reacts when we overeat or do not eat enough or when we ill-treat it in some other way.
Dreams are the natural reaction of the self-regulating psychic system.
