“THE WIZARD OF OZ” MY CRAZY INTERPRETATION- OR NOT-

POSSIBLE PSYCHOLOGICAL PERCEPTION TO THE STORY OF “THE WIZARD OF OZ”

This one of those things that came to me out of nowhere, completely unexpected, and have no idea what caused it to pop up! Whatever the reason, I began seeing a very legitimate and rational psychological application that my interpretation of the story seems to fit.

IT’S BEEN MANY YEARS SINCE I’VE WATCHED IT….. EVEN STILL, I’M PRETTY SURE THIS IS HOW THE STORY GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS-****READ MY UPDATE I PUT IN THE COMMENTS**** I WANT TO KEEP MY ORIGINAL POST UNEDITED… ANYTHING I’M GOING TO ADD AFTER WILL BE IN COMMENTS SO I CAN KEEP MY ORIGINAL UNEDITED VERSION 

AFTER SHE LOOSES CONSCIOUSNESS! AFTER THE TORNADO

Dorothy, is following the yellow brick road leading to the Wizard of Oz in Emerald City…. Along the way she comes across a Lion, Scarecrow, and the Tin Man…

These characters (INSIDE HER MIND) all were missing something! Courage, a Brain, and a heart…… da da da da dah…..

-I’m not even going to get into the wicked witch (neighbor toto bit before this unconsciousness), or the relevance of any other characters (right now) ! lol

BUT!

PUT TOGETHER ALL THE “TRAITS” OR “NEEDS” OF HER “UNCONSCIOUS””FRIENDS” AS SHE FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD…. JUST THINK ABOUT THESE TRAITS/QUALITIES BEING APPLIED TO AN INDIVIDUAL—- IT’S LIKE THIS STORY WAS A DEPICTION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY, OR AWARENESS. LOL  ——

(THE ROAD LED TO THE WIZARD, AND IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THE WIZARD WAS ACTUALLY NOT EVEN A WIZARD AT ALL! -THANKS TOTO!- HE DIDN’T GIVE THEM ANYTHING EXCEPT FOR RECOGNITION THAT THEY ALREADY ATTAINED WHATEVER IT WAS ON THIER OWN DURING THIS JOURNEY….) NO? YES?

BUT!

RIGHT AFTER THAT, SHE JUST WANTS TO CLICK HER HEELS TO “GO HOME” TOO MUCH FOR HER TO HANDLE I GUESS….

MAYBE, SHE COULDN’T HANDLE BEING IN A LOGICAL AND MENTAL STATE OF COMPLETENESS – BECAUSE SHE REALLY JUST WANTED TO GO HOME! WHERE EVERYTHING WAS “NORMAL” AGAIN LOL

FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD ALL THE WAY TO THE ANSWERS, AND THE GREAT OZ!-

THAN RIGHT BACK TO -“THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME”

— THIS SEEMS TO STILL BE A COMMON BEHAVIOR FOR PEOPLE….. PUTTING IN SO MUCH EFFORT TO FIND AN ANSWER TO SOMETHING THEY MOST LIKLEY WON’T BE ABLE TO ACCEPT, THAN TURN/RUN AWAY FROM IT SO THEY CAN  RETURN TO “NORMALITY” … BUT AT LEAST THEY KNOW THE ANSWER LOL

  1. Hmmm…it does sound silly when you put it that way. We always want more. We are never satisfied with who we are or what we have. One day we look back and wish to be the simple person we used to be before the storm of life turned our world around. Lol! How’s that interpretation?

    Liked by 1 person

  2. Well, not me! That simple person before a jolt of awakening didn’t turn my world around….. It opened me to a world I was missing out on….. I don’t ever want to go back into a “simple” semiconscious life of BLAH
    There are a lot of my quotes that refer to this, so I won’t go on and on with it here….

    The interpretation that the Dorothy OZ post was trying to reference that she was “subconsciously” Unconsciously in a dream world or “dream state” resolving internal issues which psychological theories have suggested that dreaming is possibly one way in which our brains resolve emotional and psychological conflicts between conscious and subconscious while we are sleeping. It is while we sleep that these parts of the brain actively communicate (to work things out) lol

    Of course there is a lot more scientific and detailed information on this which I’m sure no one wants me to go on about (and I don’t feel like writing it) lol

    But, like always, its easily found through research if anyone is interested.
    Back to Toto and Dorothy, because were not in Kansas yet……

    My reference was that this, to me, was a good reflection of whats going on while people are dreaming and don’t get to observe it for themselves. Dorothy is giving us a window into the dream world…..
    have I gone past crazy yet?

  3. So, I decided to watch some of the movie that I made this assessment on. It seemed like a good idea, given the fact that I haven’t seen it in well over 10 years!
    It didn’t take more than the first few minutes for me to start seeing even more EVIDENT references that support my interpretation. (I DIDN’T EVEN NEED TO WATCH IT LONG ENOUGH TO THE TORNADO SCENCE.)
    RIGHT IN THE BEGINNING OF THE MOVIE—- REAL QUICKLY ONE PERSON TELLS HER SHE “DOESN’T HAVE THE COURAGE” THAN GUESS —— ONE SAYS SHE HAS NO BRAINS,
    Like I suggested before, I’m now even more convinced…. In her unconscious “dream” state in the world of oz, Is what feel to be a very great depiction of the subconscious brain goes through processes to resolve emotional conflicts experienced from the conscious world
    *****I SAID THAT I WOULD KEEP MY ORIGINAL POST AND NOT EDIT, SO, KEEPING MY WORD I WISH TO REVISE MY ENDING
    IT’S NOT THAT SHE COULD’T HANDLE IT
    SHE HAD RESOLVED EVERYTHING AND WAS READY TO WAKE UP !
