What does your dream mean

What does your dream mean

I always get questions from people asking me "What does my dream mean?". Dream interpretation is one of the most common misunderstood arts out there.

There are tons of websites on the internet that claim that they have dictionaries that could help a person know the meaning of his dream but as soon as you know more than little about the psychology of dreams you will come to understand that you are the only person who can tell what does your dream really mean.

Dreams are decoded into symbols because that's how your subconscious mind thinks, however, you must understand that each one of us has got his own set of symbols that doesn't necessary match the symbols of others.

For example, when a woman who fears cats sees a cat in her dream then her dream will have a different meaning than the dream of a woman who loves cats.

While both of those women saw the same dream still their dreams had completely different meanings. So when someone tells you that seeing a Dog in a dream means bla bla bla know that he is saying nonsense.

Are dreams meaningful?

So why do people dream? and how can you find the meaning of your dreams? There are lots of theories that attempt to explain the meaning of dreams, here are the ones that make the most sense:

  • Dreams are messages: A dream can be a message sent to you by your subconscious mind to motivate you to solve a certain problem That you are ignoring.
  • Concern about problems: If you are worried or concerned about something then you might dream about it when you sleep. For example if you are worried about losing your job or status you might dream that you are falling (just an example). The meaning of the dream in such a case is a concern about losing what you already have
  • Suppressed emotions: Your wishes and desires can sometimes be fulfilled through a dream. Sometimes dreaming that you are doing something can mean that you really want to do it in real life. Dreaming that you are driving a Ferrari could mean that you really want to purchase one
  • Visions: That's the part science doesn't understand yet but it happens frequently that someone sees a dream that comes true

Now that you know why you dream its time to move to the next step which is understanding the meaning of your own dreams.

Finding the meaning of your dreams

The first thing you must understand when attempting to find a meaning for your dreams is to know that your dreams can only be interpreted correctly in the light of the current events that are taking place in your life.

This means that you can't understand the meaning of your dreams by just telling someone about it and then waiting for him to guess what life situations you are going through.

Of course a person can help you interpret your dreams provided that he knows a lot about you and about the life circumstances you are going through.

Now that you know this fact here is how to interpret your dreams:

  1. Write down all the details of the dream as soon as you remember it
  2. Put in mind that even the people you see in your dreams can be symbols too so if you saw your uncle in a dream then this doesn't necessary mean that your mind is referring to him
  3. Try to connect the events of the dream to the events that are taking place in your life especially the most recent ones

The conclusion is, no one can help you know the meaning of your dreams except you because you are the only one who can guess what your symbols really mean to you.
