Personal Dream Interpretation The Easy Way

Dream interpretation is an excellent tool for self-help and self-discovery. It also offers the possibility of strengthening your psychic and or intuitive abilities. Often, however, it can seem that understanding dreams can be so complicated in symbolism that finding their meaning appears challenging. Following are some quick tips on how to begin a process of personal dream interpretation that is fun, easy and can help you can take advantage of all the insights that dream interpretation has to offer.

Write Down Your Dreams

Get a notebook and pen and keep them on your nightstand or somewhere else that is easily in reach. You are about to start a Dream Journal. It is important that you do not write anything within your dream journal except the dreams you have and notes you may make about interpreting those dreams. Writing down your dreams teaches your mind that dreams have some importance. The mind then makes more of an effort to keep dreams recorded in memory and over time you are likely to discover that remembering dreams come easier after you awake. You might also be surprised to discover you have certain dreams that return in different forms. Also, a dream journal allows you to easily reference dreams you have had over time so you can see recurring dream symbolism, which usually is indicative of an important theme or personal issue you are dealing with.

It is best to write the dreams down immediately upon awakening so you don’t forget the details. If you find at first recalling details of a dream seems difficult, it is important to make notes about ANYTHING you remember. It is not important to recall every detail. A tip on dream interpretation: Feelings matter! It is as important to record (and examine) how you feel during a dream. If a dream scares you, note that. If some object of situation in a dream disturbs you, note that. Even if you can only recall a few details about a dream you can gain real insight if you note how you felt about those few details. Were you curious? Surprised? Feeling a sense of loss? What?

Name your dreams with something like movie titles. This will also assists in remembering your dreams as well as help you find how common some reoccurring dreams are and/or similar to other types of dreams. Making a note of the date beside entries into your dream journal can be helpful. Sometimes you can find some dreams are related to your personal calendar. Looking at what was happening in your life just prior to a dream can offer clues as to what the dream was about.

Do Not Mix Numerous Dream Interpretation Methods, Especially At First

If you like a particular dream interpretation method, stick with it a while. If you find a particular dream interpretation method (if any), just use that method or system for a time. Mixing all sorts of dream interpretation methods, dream systems, peoples opinions about dreams and so forth often leads to confusion, not clarity – this is especially true when you first begin personal dream interpretation. You want to work out how you interpret your dream meanings, not what everyone else thinks your dreams mean. After you have done your own dream work awhile you might consider looking into other dream systems, interpretations and so forth.

While many people’s first instinct would be to start with a dream dictionary or online site for dream interpretation, they can often be too narrow in dream interpretation to help much on a personal level. The problem is that most dream symbolism is highly individual. To understand this, think about a common dream symbol such as a dog. To a person who is afraid of dogs, a dog in a dream can be a symbol of fearful pursuit. To another person who loves dogs, a dog in a dream can be a symbol of loyalty and friendship.

Understanding what particular people, objects, animals, events and so forth mean in your dreams it can be helpful to do a ‘dream symbol study’. This can be something fun and enlightening to do when you are relaxing for an afternoon or evening. Take any object out of a dream, something like, say, ‘water’. To through your dream journal and note how many times ‘water’ comes up in a dream. Then, on a fresh page, write down all the things that come to mind about water, particularly nouns and verbs like ‘cold’, ‘flowing’, ‘flooding’, ‘ocean’ ‘pushes forward’. List your words and feelings quickly, without thinking to much about it. Now, stop and reflect on those words and descriptions you listed about the object you selected. This little exercise can often reveal a good deal about your personal dream symbolism. Remember, dream are usually ALL about events, symbols, feelings. Very little talking or reading takes place in dreams.

Once you have completed a dream symbol’s list of descriptors, you may still have some parts of the dream that do not seem to make sense. Now might be a good time to check out the dream dictionary or ask friends what they think, because they may be able to provide clues to something you are mentally blocking.

Once you begin to recall your dreams, and understand your dreams, you might be surprised with the value of studying your dreams. Dreams can help you unravel deep feeling about people, relationships and situations. Dreams have often been used to problem solve, enhance creativity and provide astonishing insights into who you are and what your life, or could be, about.

There are numerous approaches to understanding dreams. Loosely, there is the scientific approach, the psychological approach (somewhat associated with the scientific approach) and there is the mystical approach. Some people strongly support a particular approach to dreams while dismissing others. If you are new to exploring dreams, it might be helpful to be open to multiple ideas as to what dreams are and what they may mean. Although you may begin with a particular approach to understanding your dreams, given the incredible mystery as to what dreams are, it might be a good idea over time to be open to many ideas about dreams and dreaming.

Taking A More Mystical Approach To Dreams

Dreams can have more than psychological meaning for people with psychic abilities. Dream symbols may not be symbols at all, but rather people, places events that may unfold in the future (or snapshots of the past). We are talking about possible precognitive dreaming – dreams of possible future events. There is also some unusual records of people traveling out of body and visiting other places (or maybe remote viewing where on is seeing, sensing distant locations). Among those who study the paranormal, there is also speculation about telepathic communication with loved ones, family, friends while one is in a dream state.

For psychics, clairvoyants and others with special abilities, dreaming of a deceased loved one might be direct communication with a spirit who has passed into the spirit world. People who have had what can be call spirit contact during a dream say there are ways one can often distinguish between spirit contact and just dreaming of a person who has passed on. One distinguishing feature is how powerful and vivid the dream is – extremely vivid dreams of deceased loved ones can indicated spirit contact. Also, a dream of a deceased love one that is emotionally powerful, particularly if there are strong feelings of relief and love that seem to wash over you during the dream.

Dreaming of someone living may mean that you’re thinking of them. It can also could mean that you are reaching out to them telepathically. If the latter is true, and you make a connection during a dream, you are likely to feel a strong charge of energy during the dream.

Precognitive dreams are more difficult to distinguish from ordinary dreams. This is where keeping a dream journal can both help you identify dreams that ‘come true’ and learn to recognize precognitive dreams when they occur. Unlike the other types of dreams precognitive dreams rarely come with strong emotion attached though they may evoke emotions of surprise or outrage (some people who claim to have dreams of the future say that a particular symbols may be used within the dream to indicate that the dream is a precognitive one – the symbols seem to be chosen by the dreamer for his or her own reasons).

A precognitive dream can also be very vivid and direct, for example, you get a phone call from someone and you can see the phone, hear the ring, feel the surprise yet the conversation is a blur can indicate you are about to hear from someone (if you find you are on a phone yet never hear the phone ring nor figure out how you got on the phone can indicate you should call someone or feel a need to contact the person you believe is on the phone with you)

Doing personal dream interpretation regularly by keeping a journal and making a few notes when reviewing a dream is one of the easiest and effective tools for self-help and self exploration. You might discover that keeping notes on dreams opens up a new perspective on the world – you might even begin to feel that an unexamined dream is an opportunity wasted.
