“Dreams always seek to express something the ego is not aware of or does not understand.” – Carl Young.
Carl Jung was a 19th-century psychotherapist. He conducted a series of studies and concluded that research into dreams opens a door to consciousness and the world of spirits.

The water symbol is usually associated with purity and calmness. Dreaming of water is considered very pious. It signifies that the water is washing away the old path and paving the way for something new and wonderful.

Fire dreams have many meanings depending on their context. Seeing fire from afar indicates possibilities and a desire for transformation. But if you see yourself playing with fire, this is a warning that dangerous situations are forming. If you dream of setting the fire, this symbolizes your pent-up anger.
Naked dreams are very common. It’s the fear of exposure. If one sees another person naked in a dream, this often means losing his respect. Such dreams indicate the exposure of the “naked truth”. They also indicate the need to accept flaws and imperfections.
If you often dream of being naked, you are probably afraid to show your true self to the world.
Dreams are our mind’s interpretation of what we see and feel when we are awake.
