analysis of a dream
Ricardo dreamed: “I was wearing a military uniform and my family marched according to my orders: ‘One, Two, Three, and! Turn, and!’ They were all very firm, rigid and obedient, and I felt proud of my control. We marched through the street and the neighbors watched us from the windows with expressions of admiration.”
Ricardo had this dream in a time in which his family disintegrated. His wife was being difficult in the divorce negotiations, and his adolescent daughter threatened to go live with her boyfriend and leave her studies. The dream reveals his desire to put his family life back in order and avoid the circumstances that had escaped his control. His subconscious was recommending that he be more strict and energetic in enforcing his opinions. Up until then Ricardo had always given in to his wife’s and daughter’s desires, and his life was uncontrolled. The fact that the neighbors approved of his conduct from the windows reflects his need for recognition, which he only felt in this important moment of his life.
