Yes, because many people in a dream can repeat any main theme or idea, a desire that worries them, based on this information, you can already draw some conclusions about the psychological state of a person.

From my own experience, I can assume that dreams are most likely the strongest sublimation of the dreamer's character and personal life experience. At the same time, if you try to interpret any vivid dream using a sufficient amount of imagination, you will come to the conclusion that it speaks of your own different and completely contradictory experiences. For example, the same dream can speak of the desirability and, at the same time, the undesirability of some event. A desire seen in a dream and revealed as a result of analysis can be seen by a person as already fulfilled and at the same time still only awaiting fulfillment and even unfulfilled at all. Seen in a dream, sometimes, should be perceived with the opposite sign.

It is unlikely that anyone understood this confusion inherent in dreams better than Freud. Although, it can be argued that Freud worked only with sick neurotics, whose dreams, the contradiction should be inherent by definition. But neurosis is not some kind of serious illness, like schizophrenia; every person who doubts something has a predisposition to neurotic contradiction. Neurosis is a pathological doubt that leads to uncertainty.

The dreams of healthy people, however, can never express only one desire and one thought, on the contrary, due to the fact that in a dream a person practically does not have to analyze signals coming from the senses, the sleeper's brain gets the opportunity to recall the most distant events and build the most intricate mental structures, so even discoveries can be made in a dream. A typical dream is a tangle of a wide variety of thoughts, impressions, memories, ideas and desires. This intertwining is so great that it is not known whether any person at all is able to analyze his dream completely, remembering all its elements and the thoughts associated with them. Despite this, in a dream, there is often a main theme that immediately catches the eye.

It is better to take up sleep analysis immediately after waking up. Better yet, do it in a semi-conscious state or even in the process of lucid dream. Freud said that it is internal criticism that prevents us from understanding the meaning of a dream, and in an unconscious state, the function of critical analysis (which can interfere with the interpretation of a dream) is practically absent. In this state, a person turns out to be extremely suggestible - he can dream of the most incredible events and creatures, but he almost never asks himself whether this is possible.

Worth it. But before that, study Jung and Freud. Dreams are our unconscious, we see in a dream that which we actively suppress while awake. There is no need to analyze the dream from the point of view of superstition, we dream about what worries us, we need to sit down and analyze why you dreamed exactly this today, what you pushed into the unconscious and what you should do to get your psyche free (if the same dream dreams very often).

Your own dreams must be analyzed. In fact, in a dream, our fate gives us hints of what will happen to us in the near future. Partly, the plots of dreams say that something bad will happen to us, and partly something good. If you saw a bad plot in a dream, you need to go to the bathroom, open the tap, put your hand under the stream of water and ask the water to wash away everything bad. If you do this, then nothing bad will happen to you later, despite the content of the dream.

There are also good dreams. For example, if you dreamed about Mr. Oh, then this is a sure sign that you will soon receive money. Good dreams should be appreciated, and bad dreams should be completely thrown out of your head. And everything will be fine.
