This is a post by Aquileana from 07/24/2008 and as I adore her all through my heart, I did save her posts to try to share them now and then as my time allows.
The title is Psychoanalysis: “Free Association and Interpretation of Dreams”: Although, I think that Freud with the power of his basic arguments had been going towards a kind of domestic of his own arts. As we see in his one of the students; Carl Gustav Jung, in which he’d shown in his acting in psycho, the (arbitrium liberali) Free choice, especially in the case of Sabina Spielrein how to act.
But as I believe, Sigmund Freud was and still is a beginner of all our first ever cognition in our dark hidden side, therefore, let him speaks through my lovely teacher’s lips; Aquileana @aquileana 𝕒𝕢𝕦𝕚𝕝𝕖𝕒𝕟𝕒 ★༄@aquileana as I adore her and adore her 🙏💕💖💕😘🙏😘💕💖

Psicoanálisis: “Asociación Libre e Interpretación de los Sueños”.-
07/24/2008 by Aquileana
The basic therapeutic method of classical psychoanalysis is based on three fundamental processes: Free Association, Analysis of Transfer and Counter transference phenomena and Resistance Analysis. The analysis of these processes is accompanied by framing elements or work rules for the patient (Basic Rule of the Free Association) and the therapist (Abstinence Rule Floating Care Rule). The free association is that the patient must express all his thoughts, feelings, fantasies and mental productions in general, as they arise in his head and feelings without any exclusions or restrictions. Sometimes the analyst urges the patient to associate with the elements that the patient himself has generated in his own speech. The analyst refrains from responding to specific demands of the patient such as comfort, sympathy or advice, and acts as a blank screen or mirror that projects the discourse displayed by the patient himself (abstinence rule). In addition, the analyst should not initially prioritize any component of the patient’s discourse, while maintaining neutrality and homogeneous importance to all the patient’s discourse elements (floating care rule). According to Freud, the dream recounted or subjectively remembered lacks authenticity, since it is a substitute for something ignored for the subject who has the dream. This occurs because that part has an unconscious character for the subject’s consciousness. The dream as a whole is a deformed substitution of an unconscious event whose discovery corresponds to the interpretation of dreams. By means of free association, the subject is instructed not to avoid communicating any idea or memory, however insignificant or absurd or disgusting it may seem, that this element of his own dream provokes. The diurnal remains of the experiences had by the subject on the day before bedtime will serve as material for the unconscious construction of the dream, taking this form of manifest material through his memory. However, the manifest content reaches our consciousness in a distorted and disguised way; It is censored, so it is presented as a manifestation disguised as an unconscious desire. Sleep censorship is responsible for such a result. Censorship rises against unconscious desire. The desires expressed in dreams, as well as those related to neurotic symptoms, have a central aspect of a sexual nature and are usually related to erotic desires lived in childhood or associated associatively with them. Censorship represents the moral instance of the subject, which to his conscience seems reprehensible. Through certain mechanisms, such as displacement, the unconscious desire happens to be represented successively in different images of the dream, in addition to being able to condense by joining or joining several images, thus being hidden from consciousness. These mechanisms of defence against desire, and the disguised form in which that desire is expressed, are those that produce the particular form of each personal dream. Therefore, the method of dream interpretation shuns the universal interpretation of symbols, since each dream refers to the unconscious personal meanings of a desire; I wish that only the subject himself can decipher with the help of the deployment of his associative chain from his manifest content to his latent and unconscious content. However, Freud came to admit that in certain cases the universal decipherment of the symbols (*) could be used. In fact, Freud concluded that in certain cases there are prototypical dreams that can be interpreted by their symbolic correspondence; but only when the subject of the dream is unable to associate freely about its content. In other words, symbolism appears as an auxiliary method to free association, when it is hindered. In this sense, Freud exposes a series of correspondence of sexual symbols and organs; such as elongated, piercing or rising objects of manifest content and male sexual organs or male sexual activity; or the relationship between objects with cavity and protrusions with the female sexual organs.
“Flectere si nequeo superos, Acheronta movebo”.
“Si no puedo inclinar a los Poderes Superiores, moveré las Regiones Infernales”.
