Izing A Dream
Have you ever read any of Dan Brown’s books? His books’ plots are mostly centered on solving a puzzle. Dreams are just that – puzzles, codes, symbols and all the likes. Dreams are encoded messages from your subconscious and they are highly symbolic, particularly of your feelings or you’re past experiences. Sometimes, dreams can even play herald to a happening in your future! Dreams then can be a valuable source of information and lessons in life. For this reason, everybody should be able to interpret his or hers.
There are many dream dictionaries available for purchase. Though it is true that their interpretation to symbols is usually correct, no one else can interpret the exact meaning of your dreams except for yourself. You are the only one who knows the real happenings in your life and hence you are the only one who can correctly put two and two together. This article will discuss some tips on how you can interpret your own dreams.
First, you have to make sure you can remember your dreams. Find a simple guide on how you can remember your dreams. If one technique does not work for you, find another one and try again. Different techniques work for different people; it is just a matter of finding the right one for you. Take note of even the most senseless parts of your dream because these are usually the most important parts of the parts with the most meaning.
Images have many different meanings as was said by the cliché ‘a picture paints a thousand words’. What is actually important in dream interpretation is how you perceive these images. When you remember you dream in your mind’s eyes when you wake up, what did you think of first? How did you feel? Sometimes, even the most innocent image in you dream could bring your hair rising on end with fear. This is because these images are all just symbols of the things you love, fear or hate. Consider your feelings toward your dreams and not just the act of you dreaming something. Write down what your dreams reminded you of and what emotions ran inside you.
Dreams are not only connected to real-life situations, people and places. Sometimes they are your inner feelings’ projection, so if you cannot associate your dream with tangible objects and facts, try to look inside you and assess how you feel. If your dreams are connected to real situations, then try to remember what you felt like during that time. The reason you still dream about the past is because you still have unresolved issues that sometimes even you, yourself, are not aware of. If this is the case, then you have succeeded in interpreting your dream! Other dreams may be connected to déjà vu – that is dreaming a situation before it actually occurs. Still, some dreams may be promotion. Other dreams may be hidden desires or anger. Blood in your dream, for example, may signify a failed relationship. Dreaming of falling teeth, on the other hand, signifies your fear at failing in life.
Dreams really are a powerful emotional vehicle. Do not ignore your dream because you are afraid to face what is behind your conscious mind. People should always seek to be better and develop themselves.
Dream interpretation is one of the ways to better your person and your life. Start interpreting your dreams so you can know yourself more. Use them as a tool so you can come to terms with suppressed emotions. And most of all learn from your dreams because they offer valuable lessons, which are even more accessible, then life experience. Handle your thoughts right.
