“Excuse me” she had called out,
“Do you remember, where I can be found?
It had all got off to a bad start,
she was gloomy and depressed in her heart.
Feeling sorry for herself and in a foul mood,
I could see that she was sad by her grumpy attitude.
“But all of this is unbelievable” I stammered,
in fascination, I was besotted, enamoured.
Swinging my legs off the edge of the bed,
listening intently, to what was being said.
She ushered “it’s all just easy stuff,
are you curious and willing enough”?
“Is this science fiction”? I prompted
“do I know you, or have I forgotten”?
Like a moth to a flame we were drawn,
with foresight, ideas and potential galore.
“When awakening, to wipe the sleep from my eyes”
she was still there, chit chatting inside.
Even when I’m sleeping, she’s awake
I had heard her, for goodness sake.
When switching off the lights,
she’d always been present, that was right!
I shook my head knowing that I was resisting this idea,
but then my unconscious awareness became clear.
Then a most peculiar thing happened,
becoming mindful of old repetitive thinking patterns.
Conforming to the laws of scientific reasoning and logic,
my subliminal self, had long been forgotten.
At once, I felt a settling of nerves,
shifting between past and present senses on alert,
Feeling a great gush of excitement,
formed by our renewed bonds of alliance.
“This must be it”, I then thought,
our friendship has been recovered, after all.
Hugging, squealing and shrieking in delight,
I thanked my long lost friend for her dreaming insights.

“The unconscious mind is an enigma. The things we do are determined both by our conscious and unconscious minds. Thus, delving deeper into the unconscious mind is a fascinating adventure. It also helps us better understand who we truly are” ~
Sigmund Freud. The father of psychoanalysis studied the unconscious mind. Most of the unconscious mind quotes that exist are his.
“The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind”. ~ Sigmund Freud
He found that they were hidden messages that, once interpreted, gave direct access to the unconscious mind.
