Are There Days When our Dreams Don't Come True?


Marie-Louise von Franz, student of Carl Jung, once said: "A dream is always unique, always come at the most appropriate moment. It is a message from the power of instinct, the power of the collective unconscious, a message that comes on a particular night, created solely for the dreamer."

Jung believed that through the open gateway to the unconscious and our dreams, a person could receive a hint and aid that they could not get from any other outer source that is not connected to their sacral self and their individuality. The best possible persons for solving the problems that we have, are we ourselves, who are familiar with them not only consciously with a critical intelligence but also on a finer level, where they are analyzed, processed, stored and seek the outer projection of the dream so that we can go back to them when we are awake and overcome them.

The debate whether certain dates and days of the week have an effect on the messages in dreams and whether the dream will come true has always brought forth many questions. Saturday night and Sunday night are considered peculiar, while the dreams then are said to be pointless or ones that should be ignored because they don't come true.

Beliefs about this, according to some, are derived from folkloric and cultural prejudices. Saturday and Sunday were the days when the entire household limited the amount of work done. Farmers and household members usually stayed closer to home and only carried out the most urgent tasks pertaining to the care of their animals or the preparation of their own food.

Sunday is traditionally seen as a religious day. In the past it was met with a greater expectancy and a feeling of awe. People would single-mindedly follow the formal societal-religious order which they filled with strong inner belief and obedience: they would shower, put on newer clothes, visit the holy church, act more solemn and strictly follow the messages issued by the church.

The idea was entrenched that dreams - unexplainable, frightening, uncontrollable, appeared as a counterbalance to the reality that was established and clearly defined by the writings, the Bible and holy spirituality of the church. Dreams always remained unpredictable when it came to real life consequences - whether or not and to what extent they would come true, while church-spirit life was more tangible with its familiar and peaceful routine.

It was easier for people to conclude that any dreams on the eve of days closely tied to their faith (Sunday or Saturday - the day of the dead, and holidays - especially Christmas and Easter) became powerless and that they would be safe from any negative messages in them.

There exist countless signs that can be found even in a dream not-so-rich in events. The theory for interpreting their meaning is based not only on understanding the particular symbols - archetypes through the collective unconscious but also through our individual, personal specificity.

A belief that has not been particularly validated is that any one specific day has the ability to, on its own, stop the flow of information from our dreams, to transform it into meaning or make it a bit more truthful. The messages we receive during a dream in a higher level of the Divine non-physical space also cannot be expected to not come true, even if we experience a mere hour or minute of dreaming.


The phenomenon of the manifestation of dreams is a deeply personal process and is always linked to our consciousness regarding what we've lived through - dreams of the past; what we're experiencing right now - dreams that tell us that our mind is highly psyched up by fleeting events and conditions; and rarely - dreams of the future, which may even end up being linked to a precise prediction about an upcoming event.

Our daily life can only influence what we put in as an archetype-idea into it. If the night on which we dream something highly exciting precedes a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, we should think about what we associate that day and holiday with. On its own, the day cannot foreshadow whether a message pertaining to the future will come true or not. If this was the case, we would probably be having certain types of dreams, which, controlled by the days, would have a common characteristic and repetitive occurrence.

To interpret our dream and whether it's truly significant or not, we need to carefully consider whether it has to do with anything trivial, for example: our blanket isn't covering us well enough and we dream of a strong and cold wind blowing toward us.

Dreams are not reliant on any sort of external factor, the answer about them lies in ourselves, in our souls - the temple of God. There also lies the answer to whether they will come true or not.
