When you translate the meaning of dreams according to the scientific method of dream interpretation you understand the wise messages contained in all dream images, even if they seem to be mere repetitions of what happens to you during your daily life. All images in dreams have a symbolic meaning, even when they seem to be mere reflections of your daily actions.
The known dream symbols show you the basic meaning of each dream. For example, the baby in dreams indicates a moral mistake. The baby represents a sin related to a love relationship, like betraying your partner with someone else, or having a relationship with someone who is already married.
Only by seeing a baby in a dream you already know that the unconscious mind is warning you that you must be careful and avoid making a serious moral mistake.
However, the dream story is also very important, so that you may understand why the unconscious mind is sending you this message and what you have to do. The dream story will give you explanations, based on the dream symbols.
For example, you had a dream where:
‘You saw a baby at your living room. Then, you were wondering how to feed the baby because you had never done it before.’
The dream story shows you that there is a moral mistake in an important part of your psyche (the living room). In other words, you are ready to make a sin.
You represent your ego in dreams. Your ego doesn’t know how to feed your moral mistake because you have never betrayed your partner before. However, you are about to make this sin.
In a few words, this dream is showing you that even though this is the first time that you are thinking about betraying your partner or having a relationship with someone who is already married, you are making a moral mistake the same way. It doesn’t matter if you were innocent up to this moment. Right now you are about to make a serious moral mistake that you must avoid.
At the same time, this dream is showing you that instead of avoiding what is bad, you are thinking about how to effectively make a sin (feed the baby).
Now, you have to think about what is happening to you and relate the unconscious messages to the issues you are facing in your daily life.
In this dream, the details of the dream story are represented by the fact that you were wondering how to feed the baby. This means that you don’t understand that you are ready to make a serious moral mistake, which you shouldn’t make.
The dream story is criticizing your attitude. You cannot see how wrong you are for desiring to make a moral mistake. You are thinking about how to effectively make a sin (without leaving clues), while you should think about avoiding it.
