meaning of dreams (a guide to interpreting dreams)

Dreams are not hallucinations or improperly organized thoughts that come to your mind while you are asleep but they are messages that are sent to you by your subconscious mind in order to motivate you to take an action about some problem or some issue that you may have been ignoring.

Dreams can also be a way of satisfying unmet needs, for example if one of your friends always bullies you then you can see yourself beating him in a dream.

Interpreting dreams is the process of analyzing the meaning of your dream and finding out the message that your subconscious mind is trying to send you through it.

why do we dream?

When you fall asleep your conscious mind becomes dormant and your subconscious mind becomes active.

All of your worries, fears and problems are stored into your subconscious mind and so when it becomes more active some of these worries and fears show up in the form of dreams. These emotions rarely show up in their real form but instead they appear in an encoded form because this is the way the subconscious mind works.

For example if you were afraid of your boss you may see an evil ghost chasing you in your dream while in reality this ghost is nothing more than the symbol your mind uses for your boss. That’s how dream interpretation works; Its all about decoding those symbols that you see in your dreams in order to know their relevance to you and so be able to know the meaning of the dream.

Why do i have reoccurring dreams

Your subconscious mind will keep sending the message as long as the problem exists, that's why some people get the same dream often without knowing why.

Think about it, all of these thoughts, ideas and unsolved problems that are trapped inside your subconscious mind exert a very big load on your mind and that's why they must be vented somehow.

These thoughts and problems are vented through dreams. Unless you can interpret your dreams and understand their meaning you may keep seeing recurring dreams.

Lucid dreams

lucid dreams are special kind of dreams where you become aware of the fact that you are dreaming but the in same time you don’t wake up. By practice you can learn how to induce lucid dreams and then control the events you see in the dream. This skill could be used to help you get rid of nightmares.

Dreams are a communication channel

Dreams are a communication channel between your conscious and unconscious mind. If your subconscious mind wanted to tell you something while you are awake then most probably it will do so through emotions.

But while you are asleep your subconscious mind will do the same thing using dreams. That's why learning how to interpret dreams can help you gain more self understanding.
