An approach suggested by Carl Jung. In essence it is to honour what the dream states. In the dream quoted above under amnesia, David is sleeping on a mattress, but it could have been a bed or a hammock, or even a sleeping bag. So why a mattress and why in the garden, and why not alone? Having noted the specifics of our dream, we then amplify what we know about them. We ask ourself such questions as ‘What does sleeping on a mattress on the floor mean? Have I ever done it? When? Why? Where? In what circumstances? Does it represent some condition?’ In other words we bring out as much information as we can about each dream specific; this includes memories, associated ideas, anything relevant. In the case of David, he was sleeping on a mattress on the floor in his present relationship. But he had slipped back into attitudes which damaged this old relationship. P.W. Martin emphasises it is amplification not free association which is sought. Free association may lead to an interesting ‘interpretation’ which may not be connected to the dream specifics.

(1) The meaning of a dream about a cat may depend on what you associate with cats.
If you are afraid of them in real life, they may represent in dreams things you are frightened of in yourself. But remember that a real-life fear of cats may be a symptom indicating a fear of some aspect of the femininity that cats generally symbolize: your mother, your own femininity (whether you are a man or a woman), your unconscious psyche. Nature’s energy or wisdom, the ultimate mystery of life and death and rebirth.
(2) The feminine in its various aspects may be experienced as both positive and negative. The cat may represent the positive, creative - fertile - aspect of the feminine. (In mythology cats are often associated with fertility goddesses.) The dream might be pointing to the possibility of new growth in your personality through a fuller integration of your anima, perhaps (if you are a man), or through a greater reliance on intuition or dream messages.
However, the cat may also symbolize the negative, ‘catty5 or destructive aspect of femininity.
If feminine characteristics in you are repressed, they will probably present themselves, both in dreams and in waking life, in a negative way. For example, a man whose femininity is not integrated into his conscious life may behave in a destructively catty way towards other people.
(3) A black cat may have associations of good luck and prosperity or of evil. (Cats are associated with witches, who - according to how informed your opinion of them is - arc cither priestesses of the Earth Mother and therefore represent the power and wisdom of Nature, or Satan-worshippers and therefore symbols of all that is bad.) See also Witch.
(4) Cats’ eyes are moon-like, and, like the moon, they may signify either the anima, or the unconscious seen as a fruitful womb - a rich source of (new) life. See also Moon, Woman... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
Symbol of the feminine. To dream that a cat wants you to pet it indicates that someone is trying to seduce you.
If it scratches you, you should expect professional jealousy. The color of the animal carries its secondary symbolism. So, black cats are usually associated with darkness and death, but this kind of analogy only works on superstitious people.
In mythology, the figure of the cat was associated with the pagan fertility gods who represented the power and wisdom of nature. Similarly, for the Egyptians, cats were sacred and they guarded the souls of the dead. It was not until the arrival of the Christians when they began to be considered evil relatives of witches. For this reason, many books on dreams affirm that cats presage disadvantages.
CAT - analysis of the dream
Marta dreamed: “I was petting Gea [her precious Persian kitten] when she turned to me and said: ‘pretty, more than pretty.’ I was delighted that my cat could talk, I knew she was very clever... but this was too much! Suddenly, her feline face transformed into John’s, but now she did not speak. He rather emitted terrible barking sounds and foam was coming out his mouth. I tried to hold him and calm him but he slipped out of my hands like a lizard.”
One of the most magical and intense forces of our oneiric world is transformation: animals that become people; individuals who transform into trees, monsters, or other persons; buildings that disappear... These transformations are almost always a sign of psychological changes in our lives. When Martha had this dream she had just had a little argument with her boyfriend. This dream was warning her that she should be more considerate and attentive to him. To dream that a cat is seeking you to pet her indicates that someone is trying to seduce or feels strongly attracted to you. In the case of Marta it reflected her boyfriend’s devotion and love for her. However, the fact that he first transformed into a fierce dog and then an elusive lizard denotes that such affection could also vanish or turn into resentment if she did not contribute to keep it up. The fact that she was gently petting her kitten and that the latter talked to praise Marta indicates Marta’s ability to transmit affection and the certainty that all would be fixed with dialogue....

You are dreaming about unconditional love in the feminine principle. Cats of all types represent powerful feminine energy, which includes receptivity, creativity, sensuality, and stillness. They are hunters by nature, and their nocturnal behavior associates them with the feminine aspect of night. While their masculine counterpart, the dog, embodies a pack mentality, the cat is the symbol of self-reliance. First domesticated about three thousand years ago, cats were revered for their ability to control rodent populations that would have beleaguered the stores of grain that were so crucial to the emergence of civilization. Cats have long been associated with magic and witchcraft, with the classic black cat as the carrier of the most superstition.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

As with all dream symbols, the tone and setting of the dream indicate which meaning is appropriate.... Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia
Jung saw cats in dreams as representing the hidden or secretive side of a person’s nature. Cats often feature in dreams of women to represent the urge to care for someone or in some cases a desire for sex and the need to reproduce. In men’s dreams, a cat or group of cats may refer to a woman or group of women, or to the intuitive side of men’s nature, perhaps warning him of hidden dangers; cattiness, jealousy in a relationship. On the other hand it can also suggest independence, stealth and fertility. An alley cat indicates promiscuity. In some dreams, a black cat, depending on what the dreamer associates with it, may indicate good or bad luck or fear in general.
If the dream suggests cats are to be feared, this can indicate fear of the female in oneself, fear of females or a particular ‘catty’ female, or difficulty in meeting feelings and intuition.
If you are allergic to cats and dream of one, it might signify a negative and threatening reaction to a situation or relationship.
If cats speak in your dreams, this suggests sexuality, femininity and an ability to express it.... The Element Encyclopedia
To see a cat in your dream signifies an independent spirit; they also suggest feminine sexuality, creativity and power, as well as the enigmatic, mysterious and wise part of yourself. Bear in mind, though, when interpreting your dream that your real-life reaction to cats is crucial.
If you are a woman who likes cats and one appears in your dream, this may be a manifestation of one of the positive aspects of the female principle: the mother, high priestess or Amazon archetype.
If you are a man, it may have been guiding your anima towards an appreciation of the feminine part of your personality. Your dream may also have been urging you to place more reliance on your instincts when dealing with a current situation.
If, however, you dislike cats or the cat in your dream is aggressive, then it suggests that you are having problems relating to the feminine aspect of yourself. The dream cat may have represented the more negative female archetypes of the terrible mother, siren huntress or witch. Or perhaps there is a deceitful woman in your life who is behaving cattily. Alternatively did your dream cat remind you of a pun? Are you feeling smug, like the cat who got the cream or were you being reminded that curiosity killed the cat?
If you see a cat with no tail in your dream, this signifies a loss of independence and lack of autonomy. To dream that a cat is biting or scratching you symbolizes the devouring female or perhaps you are taking and taking without giving. You may be expressing some fear or frustration, especially if something is not going as planned. Such a dream may also be a warning against treacherous people in your life or it may also represent a part of your personality that is crying out for love and attention.
If a cat is injured or killed in your dream, your dream may be a reference to the nine lives that cats enjoy. In this regard, your dream refers to the overcoming of numerous obstacles in your waking life; the resilience of the cat represents your own inner strength and tenacity. Generally, cats are symbolic of feminine power and independence, so if one appears in your dream, have you been feeling that these characteristics are not being expressed within yourself?
If you come across a cat in your dream and spend a great deal of effort trying to locate its owner, it could be because you are the owner of that ‘cat’. The cat is symbolic of a part of your inner self. The characteristics that cats represent can be understood by thinking about their ‘essence’, or the associations that we make when we think about cats. Cats are territorial animals. They are guardians of their space. They are also aloof and a part of them can never be domesticated. Culturally, there is a sexual connotation in regard to cats. Thus, in your dream you could have found that special part of yourself—the sexy, soft and curious you (the cat within). The trouble is you insist on giving it back to an elusive owner. Your dreaming mind may be urging you to claim what is rightfully yours
A cat will have several different meanings in your dream according to its color or the color it changes into. So, for example, to see a black cat in your dream suggests that you should trust your instincts or intuition more.
If you associate black or white cats with bad luck or misfortune, then to dream of them indicates your negative mindset (see COLORS).
If you dreamed of a cat in a cage this may be a reference to your own sense of crippled independence.
Kittens represent your inner child, playfulness and self-responsibility, so to dream about a kitten may mean that you need to take more time for yourself, have more fun, and nurture yourself and your sense of play more. According to dreamlore from the Middle Ages, it was unlucky to dream about cats because of their association with witchcraft. Prior to that, however, cats were sacred to the Egyptians as custodians of the souls of the dead.... The Element Encyclopedia

Careful research into speech shows that we constantly use a miracle of mental functioning in communicating with each other. Each sentence we hear spoken undergoes enormous forms of analysis. Each word is taken and a meaning sought. This is compared with other meanings, depending on context in sentence, conversational direction, speaker and speaker’s tone. At unbelievable speed, we formulate our response, with similar search and comparisons, as well as filters controlling social situation, mood, status of person being addressed, and so on. All this takes place with almost no awareness, so we can think of it as a process of the unconscious. Factors which govern subjects spoken of and choice of words are also largely unconscious. ...

Psychological / emotional perspective: The computer can symbolize spiritual records and the past, present and future.
A database would, for instance, suggest the ordering of information. Text messaging might suggest brief but necessary information, whereas a fax, being slightly outdated, requires us to bring what we know up to date.
The telephone signifies communication with unseen people and might therefore highlight communication with the spirit world.
The television is, quite literally, a medium through which information is passed.
The internet will tend to signify wider, more global, communication and available information.... Dream Meanings of Versatile
Material aspects: Communication occurs on so many levels that images of modern technology can now accurately mimic in dreams the way we communicate.
A stored document suggests that we are making a link with past memories or stored information which we may need to access in order to progress.
The computer and other high technology images are now such a part of people’s lives that it very much depends on other circumstances in the dream as to the correct interpretation of the image.
A computer crashing, for instance, suggests that there is a problem with the means of communication rather than communication itself. As modern day technology spreads, such an image may simply be a means of conveying a message from the unconscious to the conscious mind, whereas in other cases it will be a reminder of personal potential or abilities.
A keyboard, requiring a certain degree of skill, can suggest the stages of proficiency we need to acquire in order to communicate our ideas efficiently.... Dream Meanings of Versatile
Dreaming of difficulties in communicating suggests something needs to be said or you need to understand the messages you are receiving.

The Premier in Dream Dictionary
If you hear a message in a dream which you know to be important but simply cannot understand, even if it is in your own language, this is a clear symbol of frustration in waking life. A similar scenario would be if you are trying to explain something to someone but cannot make yourself understood. Both dreams speak of times in your life when, for some reason, communication is blocked, or you are misreading the emotions of someone or they are misreading you.
If you dream that you have muddled your words, this suggests a vain struggle to attract the attention of someone in your dream. The inability to say the right words when you meet them may symbolize feelings of inadequacy in real life or a deep sense of frustration that the important people in your life, or the people you respect and admire, do not appreciate or even notice you. One of the most distressing scenarios in a dream is when you try to talk or cry out but have no voice.
If you have such a dream, try to work out who is not hearing you in waking life; do you need to listen more and give your voice a rest?
Tripping up in public, forgetting your words when giving a speech, treading on someone’s toes in a dance, or spilling food and drink over a VIP can all betray a deep sense of social inadequacy, even with regard to people close to you. Perhaps your ineptitude masks an element of defiance, expressing your feelings of frustration with the stifling rules and norms of social convention.
If someone you know appears in a dream but you find yourself unable to recognize them, this suggests feelings of frustration or ambivalence towards that person in waking life. A similar sense is conveyed if you are looking on as a spy whilst a friend or lover commits a crime, or an illicit or compromising act.... The Element Encyclopedia

While the elimination of waste might be the first thought that comes to mind when thinking of feces, at the heart of it, bowel movements are our first connection to us as creative beings. Consider the power and intensity associated with potty training and all the effort that goes into guiding a child toward controlling this bodily function. This period in a child’s life has a profound impact on how he or she operates in the world. Often the most effective method of this training involves helping a child make a creative connection to what comes out in the toilet. For the young mind, this is quite an impressive feat. From this perspective, defecation or feces in a dream are always going to connect first to personal creative power. Whatever that turns out to be, it is likely going to be about the state of your individual, creative affairs. Notice whether the experience in your dream is repulsive or not. Often in such a dream, there may not be an association to feces as dirty.
If the experience is indeed repugnant, then you may be in some form of resistance to a deeper process that is going on that may require getting “down and dirty” with shadow material. Eating feces points to needing to integrate your own creativity into some aspect of your life. Playing with or handling feces (and how you felt about doing so) may indicate your level of comfort with a transition in your life that may be requiring you to go deeper into your “own shit” in order to find a new sense of self....

The blackboard sets information out in black and white, so in dreams it can represent unambiguous insights or the need to make your mark on the world. Because chalk can be rubbed out it is a warning against having rigid opinions that do not allow the possibility of change. According to Freud, holding a piece of chalk suggests masturbation whilst breaking a piece of chalk suggests a fear of castration. A school desk is a symbol of your most private self.
If your initials are carved on the desk, this also expresses your desire to make your mark on the world. Freudians would argue that opening a desk and searching inside is a symbol of sexual intercourse.
Many of us associate ink with our schooldays and if ink is spilled over a sheet of paper in your dream, this may suggest feelings of guilt. The shade of ink will be significant: black ink will symbolize evil thoughts or deeds, whilst red will symbolize impulsive acts. Dreaming of notebooks or schoolbooks can suggest a great deal; are the notebooks neat, suggesting an ordered mind or are they messy, suggesting confusion? If there are doodles alongside the scribbles, this suggests a creative personality that thrives in chaos. If, in your dream, your schoolbag is filled with pens, papers, books and apples, this suggests the happiness gained from happy experience but if the schoolbag is heavy and cumbersome, you may be feeling weighed down by the past. Pay attention to the quality and condition of the school bag as it could reveal a lot about your current approach to life.
If the school bell rings suggesting that a lesson is over, this may indicate the end of a difficult phase in your life but if the bell comes at the end of a playtime, it could signify regret that a happy period in your life is coming to an end.... The Element Encyclopedia

Dreams are a unique form of communication; a way for your dreaming self to communicate with you.
Sometimes the messages contained within dreams can be obscure and difficult to interpret but if your dream contains symbols of communication, such as letters, handwriting, telephones or emails, its meaning may be easier to interpret. Often these symbols are entwined with a wealth of other images but sometimes you may wake with a lingering image of them as the main item in your dream.
Both Carl Jung and Fritz Perls believed that each dream symbol is an aspect of your true self and that communication symbols, in particular, contain useful messages from your unconscious. When trying to interpret these messages, first consider whether the communication makes a clear reference to your waking life or triggers other associations for you. The next thing to consider is the form the communication took and what this suggests. For example, a phone call suggests something more informal than a telegram.
If the communication was coded, does that imply a close connection or a lack of understanding? Considering all these aspects in their context along with the other symbols in your dream may help with the interpretation. See also NUMBERS; SOUNDS.... The Element Encyclopedia

Being suffocated may symbolize (a fear of) being overwhelmed or totally dominated by someone or something; for example, a mother- attachment, or depression, or an external situation that you find intolerably restrictive.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
Dreams of suffocation or being crushed often relate to your feelings concerning separation and attachment in waking life, and as such, point to experiences of childhood and family. Such dreams often occur at times of change, such as leaving home for the first time, getting married or at times of illness and death. Dreams of suffocation can also tell of fears of being overwhelmed, dominated or drowned by a powerful figure, who is likely to be a family figure. Two influential psychoanalysts—John Bowlby and Donald Winnicott—have written extensively about the concept of separation and attachment. They suggested that a large proportion of anxieties and mental health problems are associated with separation between infant and mother in childhood. Their suggestion is that separation is not only distressing for a baby but can also cause anxieties in later life. They proposed that premature separation can lead to insecurity, which can lead to hostility, and that this hostility can interfere with the processes determining subsequent growth and development. All of this is said to trigger mourning at an age when a child is too young to manage such feelings, meaning that a child may be stuck in a state of despair or depression. Dreams of suffocation, separation, loss and abandonment may therefore be informative as they can tell the dreamer of an unresolved separation in their family. This is when feelings of mourning or hostility towards the parent or other family figure have not yet been explored or dealt with.
Separation anxiety occurs when we have to confront the prospect of being separated from someone who is considered essential to our physical or emotional survival. Typically, separation anxiety occurs in relation to family members or partners, as these are the people with whom we normally have the closest relationships; the anxiety may often be reflected in nightmares and disturbing dreams. Although normal in childhood—when a child is absolutely dependent upon the parent to provide for its needs—separation anxiety in adulthood, when the presence of another person is used in defense against some other form of anxiety, is considered detrimental to a person’s emotional development.
