How To Interpret Your Dreams

click here for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comHave you ever had a dream so intense that when you wake up you just can’t seem to shake the memory, or the feeling of that dream? Maybe you find yourself coming back to it throughout the day, strangely affected by your nocturnal experience? Perhaps there are images you can’t shake, symbols you feel hold some meaning, but you’re just not sure. And then you ask yourself, what does it all mean?

Interpreting your dreams is a very personal experience. Dreams are a conversation with your subconscious, your higher self, and Spirit. Because of this, Spirit will use symbols, colors, places, people, and so on, that have specific meaning to you. It’s important to interpret your dreams through your own lens.

To get you started interpreting your own dreams, and engaging in this conversation with your higher self, consider the following guidelines.

Journaling

Write your dreams down immediately after waking. I’m sure you’ve heard this one before, but we all know how dreams slip away from us once we are up and moving for the day. Keep a notepad by your bed and just jot down the major details. This will help train your mind to remember your dreams on waking. It can also help to bring back memories and feelings from the dreams when you reread them.

Important details to note in addition to any symbols you notice are colors, feelings, impressions, and your perspective at the time, in other words were you in your body or watching like a movie scene.

Symbolism

Identify any symbols in the dream that felt important and begin digging into what they mean to you. What do these symbols mean to you personally, first and foremost? What does conventional wisdom say about these symbols? Do the themes of these symbols relate to any situations in your waking life?

Remember that this is your dream. It’s important to consider this when doing your interpretation. While many symbols and colors have certain accepted associations, you have to put these through your own lens first.

For instance, yellow is typically considered a positive and happy color. But if you detest yellow and yet find yourself surrounded by it in your dream, this could be sending a very different message. How did you feel about the yellow in the dream? Is the color associated with anyone in particular? This kind of questioning can provide clues as to what the message is for you, specifically.

Intuition

Honor what resonates with you. Your heart will know when you recognize the message of your dreams. Trust yourself. Many feel that dream interpretation is a mystical ability, but very often it is more about getting know oneself on a deep level. There is a great honesty that is required of us as we explore the subconscious terrain of our dreamscape.

Research

If you wish you go even further with your dreamwork, I recommend finding a good book on the basics of dream interpretation. While all symbols and elements within a dream are subjective to each person, there are some basics which may help you ‘connect the dots.’

Water, for example, is typically always representative of emotion within a dreamscape. Flying typically indicates a desire for, or feeling of freedom. Seeing certain animals may suggest that we need to align with qualities they represent.

Dream interpretation should be a fun process of getting to know ourselves and uncovering fears and limiting beliefs that may be holding us back. As you work with your dream world you are likely to find your memory of dreams becomes more robust and consistent.

While our dreams may seem both mysterious and random, they offer us a peek into our subconscious selves, and open a door the astral. Working with our dreams can be deeply spiritually rewarding along our path to awakening.
