Unleashing the Power of Your Subconscious:
A Freudian Take on the Ten Commandments

David Webb (Owner, writer & host of All-About-Psychology.Com)

Sigmund Freud surrounded by text. This is the main image for the article titled Unleashing the Power of Your Subconscious: A Freudian Take on the Ten Commandments

Just for fun, here are The Ten Commandments as if they were written from the perspective of Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytic theory.

1. Acknowledge the power of your subconscious mind and the impact it has on your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

2. Do not suppress your natural instincts or desires, but learn to control and direct them in a healthy and productive manner.

3. Recognize the influence of early childhood experiences on your development and behavior.

4. Respect the autonomy and agency of others, recognizing that everyone has their own desires, needs, and motivations.

5. Do not project your own fears, anxieties, or insecurities onto others, but take responsibility for your own emotional experiences.

6. Seek to understand the underlying psychological motives behind your own behavior and the behavior of others.

7. Do not allow societal or cultural norms to repress you from embracing your sexuality.

8. Practice self-reflection and introspection to gain insight into your unconscious thoughts and motivations.

9. Do not use religion or spirituality as a means of avoiding or repressing your psychological issues.

10. Strive for personal growth and development, recognizing that psychological health and well-being require ongoing effort and self-awareness.
