The image symbols, are transformers of energy and change your ego identity.   Your changed ego identity then influences your perception of day to day experiences.
Dreams occur at critical developmental periods which affect your ability to deal with issues.  Psychological phases are pinpointed by using Age Point Progression which is a Huber Astrological Psychology model.
