The philosophy that respects all the parts of the dream beings parts of ourselves begs a discussion of how polarities appear in our dreams. In fact, establishing the polarities in a dream often leads to the ‘answer’ or strength therein.
Many people believe they cannot meet the first requirement of dreamwork —remembering their dreams. Some investigators, for example Freud, say that we forget our dreams because we don’t want to know what is in them.
