What Do Your Dreams Mean?

Posted by J. Roslyn Antle on 3/29/2015 to Occult Weekly
For those seeking to gain a better understanding of their own life, you need only to turn to your dreams. Dreams, essentially, can serve as a window to your psyche, and dream interpretation can reveal many things about not just your past and present, but quite possibly your future as well.

Dreams are an untapped resource of information, but to truly understand your dreams, you must turn to someone who possesses a solid foundation of dream interpretation. Of course, there are many books available that promise to accurately help you interpret and understand your dreams, as well as numerous Internet resources designed to help you gain a better insight into your dreams as well.  Without the guidance of someone skilled in dream interpretation, it is too easy to incorrectly determine the meaning of your dreams.

Most books and other resources typically contain a large index of items, names, colors, images, etc., with a meaning attributed to each one. But dream interpretation is much more comprehensive than simply assigning a meaning to one or two specific elements.

The true art of dream interpretation involves deciphering the meanings of all the combined elements of your dream and their relationship to each other. Consider each element of your dream as one piece of a puzzle, or perhaps a single page of a book. Each separate page offers you a glimpse at a much larger story. An accurate dream interpretation will assemble all the pages of that book in their proper order and reveal the full story.

Many ancient societies considered dreams powerful omens, or glimpses into a spirit world, and individuals sought the knowledge of wise men to help them understand their dreams. Many cultures today still place a high importance on dreams. Dreams are consistently studied by psychologists and other specialists seeking a better understanding of why we dream and what our dreams mean.

Just as each dream is unique, the meanings of dreams are also unique to each individual. For example, two people may dream of flying over a vast city, but since dreams are often drawn from an individuals own life experiences, the dreams may have different meanings for each individual.

A key aspect of dream interpretation is determining the symbolism of specific aspects within our dreams. Because dreams are related to an individuals own unique life experience, this can be a difficult process. A book may provide a small basis of understanding of a dream, however, because it cannot accurately provide an in-depth analysis relative to a specific individual, the true interpretation of a dream may be lost.

Noted psychologists such as Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung both possessed their own theories regarding dreams, as do many other respected specialists. But much of modern society has moved beyond the constrictions of specific theories delegated to all dreams, instead believing that dreams offer us much, much more.

Recurring dreams may be especially important, as they are likely related to an intense life experience or contain a deep-rooted meaning. Of course, not all dreams are positive dreams, but dreams that leave us feeling negative, frightened, or drained of energy also have their own meanings. Gaining an ultimate understanding of these dreams may help to purge an individual of negative thoughts or emotions that affect their daily lives.

I usually have no waking memory of any dreams, when I do they have to be of such a bizarre nature I see no correlation with the wakening world. For example some years back I had a recurring dream which I remember to this day: For almost a month I spent every night digging up and relocating the coffin of what was reputed to be the last Carpathian Vampire on earth. 1. It was all like an old B&W movie as I had to move the coffin at night as those seeking to destroy it were afraid to approach it between sun set and sun rise. 2.The coffin was small, black wooden, standing on end it was shorter than I was and I am just under 6' tall, but for the entire sequence I never saw the face inside the coffin and the occupant never spoke so I do not know whether it was male or female.(Had I known it to be a girl that would at least have made some sense.) 3. Unlike Bram Stoker's Renfield I was not being commanded entity, on the contrary I felt that the being was virtually helpless, almost infantile and needed someone to watch over and protect it. Instead of an apex predator, I had a frightened innocent. 4.As suddenly as they started they stopped. Nothing in my daily life explains its start or end no real or unusual stress or trauma and I could find no symbolic references that even remotely connect to my day o day life. As I said It is as clear in my mind today as when i was having the dreams and that was the late 70,s and it never happened again.

I have recurring dreams from 2 different places I have lived. Both are of the homes being haunted and something evil still there. One is my grandparents house and one is the house my ex mother in law owned. I also have one of a home I have never lived in over and over that is a huge house and my parents built, even though they are no longer married and I am estranged from my father. Same thing...something is trying to get inside at me. Any thoughts?

I have many recurring dreams. I have dreams that have come true. I keep a dream journal on the nightstand and immediately write down any dream I have that I think is of importance. I can then go back over what I've written and try to decipher the meaning. I did buy some dream interpretation books, but found the meanings are not necessarily relevant to my dreams. I prefer to decipher on my own.

Amy S.: I recommend the book "Dreams 1-2-3" if you want a guide to dream interpretation that gives a systematic approach to the subject and is easy to read.

My now ex husband and I have been broke up for almost 5 years because he got involved with another woman and I could not share him with her. I have had dreams about him since the break up and each time we seem to be getting closer. One of the last dreams I had we actually were hugging and his girlfriend (same woman) came up and tried to break us apart but he shooed her away. I need to know what all this means. We were married 30 years and I was devastated over the divorce. I think I still love him but we haven't seen or spoke in over 2 years.

I dream alot to and they are like predictions. Some come true 2 years later or 1 month later. They are dreams of other people I know or myself. I think this is my gift that my dreams come true, it is real nice to have it and it doesn't scare me at all.
