On the topic of dream interpretations, many philosophers and psychologists believe that shared dream experiences among people of diverse backgrounds, varying experiences and different ages connect us as a human race. According to these beliefs, a great number of people share the same dreams becausewe all share similar concerns, hopes and fears. To help us in understanding dreams and their possible interpretations, sleep experts recommend taking the following steps.
Understanding Dreams – The Steps of Dream Interpretation
The first step in dream interpretation is to record your dream as soon as you wake up. It helps to keep a pen and paper next to your bed so that you can record your dream before you forget about it. Write down what you see in your dream and underline important points, positive or negative, that impressed you or caused some type of reaction.
Next, obtain a reliable dreamer’s dictionary, available in any bookstore or on the Internet. A dreamer’s dictionary will help you interpret the main theme of each one of your dreams. An example of a theme is a dream about a deceased family member.
Dream Interpretations – Making the Connection
In the world of dream interpretations, themes and theme symbols represent a closer connection between the spiritual and material world. For example, suppose a person dreams about his deceased mother, who was preparing bread and sweets for him. Sitting in the kitchen with his mother, the dreamer also noticed a garden full of flowers.
A rough interpretation of that dream could be that the spirit of the man’s mother paid him a visit. The bread and sweets may symbolize that his personal or business efforts in life are coming to fruition. Finally, the garden full of flowers could reinforce the idea that he is about to receive the credit and success deserved for his labor.
A Final Note on Dream Interpretation
Understanding dreams through interpretation and then applying those interpretations can help you address and confront your hopes and fears, thus leading to a happier and more fulfilled life.
