The idiosyncrasy of dreams is mysterious yet fascinating. The rules of reality do not apply to the world of dreams. It is known yet unknown, it reflects our conscious mind yet it originates in the subconscious mind and the most interesting part to me is, it is unreal yet it shadows reality.

Mysterious World of Dreams
In totality, it is an enigmatic world based on our unique background, our own experiences and our own emotions. Our own dreams are connected only to our own reality. Perhaps if we can uncover the mysteries with the light of apt interpretations we can get an uncensored view of our real feelings and a better perspective of life issues. Understanding our own dreams gives us a scope to discover our own true self and thus becomes a means for self-exploration.Our own dreams are connected only to our own reality.

The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind

The Freud Museum in Vienna
When I visited Vienna, Austria recently, one of the most important places in our list was Freud Museum.
Sigmund Freud, the father of Psychoanalysis needs no introduction. One of his most fascinating works is about the life drive (Eros) and the death drive (Thanatos). He sought to explain the diversity of psychical life through the interplay of and conflict between these two primal drives. According to Freud, the life drive – Eros – strives to lengthen life and makes connections to objects, while the death drive – Thanatos – yearns for a return to an earlier stage of life, a tension-free and almost lifeless state, and does not strive to enter into object relationships.
Freud had the habit of reading in a very peculiar and uncomfortable body position. He used to lean in the chair, in some sort of diagonal position, one of his legs slung over the arm of the chair, the book held high and his head unsupported.
In an attempt to make the habitual reading posture of Freud more comfortable, his daughter Anna Freud, who was herself a well-known psychoanalyst, gifted him this curiously-shaped chair.
Inside the Freud Museum in Vienna, Austria
Slowly and silently when all the information related to dreams and psychoanalysis inside the Freud Museum were permeating inside my mind, I was completely engrossed in this field of study. Nowadays, whenever I get time, the childish wanderer in me seeks for more knowledge in the field of human psychology.

Freud’s three theoretical constructs
It was exciting to know about Freud’s three theoretical constructs-Id, Ego and Superego. This theory enlightens us about how these three components relate to our conscious and unconscious thought.

By Sigmund Freud
The reminiscence of the Freud museum remained with me even after leaving the place and I was lost in the mystery corners of his theories that imbued my mind space. To me any kind of knowledge in any field is the most precious thing. I hope my readers will enjoy reading about the Freud Museum as much as I did when I visited there. To me words have a magical power. The words of my readers are the sole inspiration to keep me going. I would like to hear from you all more and more.
