But what do they all mean? Dreams are a way for the subconscious or psychic part of ourselves to work out our problems.
Many of our dreams feature larger-than-life or fantastical images that couldn’t possibly exist in the real world. That’s because they are symbols. Many have written on the subject of symbolism, from the ancient Egyptians to modern psychologist Carl Jung. Just as no two people are alike, nor are their dreams.
You may often ask yourself how to interpret your confusing or murky dreamscape. The first and best way is to keep a dream journal. It’s preferable to have it by your bedside, so you can write it down once you wake up. As you start doing this, you will notice patterns emerging. If you meditate during your waking hours, these recurring images will no doubt appear there as well.

You can also refer to dream symbolism books or websites, but keep in mind that these are not a catch-all for interpretation. Ultimately you, and you alone, need to decide what everything means.
The types of dreams that may scare you are the precognitive kind. Perhaps you will see a friend or family member in pain, or revisit a place you haven’t been in years. These are not always to be taken literally. They are reflections of your conscious mind while awake. You may be just worried about that individual.
Also, these dreams are hardly ever specific. If you are dreaming about the possibility of a young child drowning, for instance, you may see the image of a pool. Then, upon seeing the image in the waking world, you can take caution. Don’t become too hung up on the literal meaning of these “scary” dreams. Chances are they are a reflection of something much deeper.
Our world is “energy in motion,” as Jung called it, and the future never will be set in stone. Remember the wonderful scene in Star Wars of the wise Master Yoda warning a young Luke Skywalker that “always in motion, the future is?” He had it right! Our dreams likewise reflect this.

You may dream of the same plot with a different outcome, or similar themes with slight variations. Pay attention to these and note them in your dream journal. They are harbingers of things to come. Perhaps you are due to look for a new job, work on a relationship, or get a fresh start.
As you become more adept in awareness of your dreams, you may find that you will have lucid or extremely vivid dream experiences, or dreams in which you are actually able to leave your physical body. These are advanced techniques that can be developed through practice and lots of journaling. Remember to start off slowly and get the right amount of sleep.
Dreams, first and foremost, are gateways into the spirit world. They can open up a world of possibilities for you and your consciousness. Don’t be afraid of them! Use your natural ability and find your own life’s code waiting within.
