Dream Interpretation

Dreams have caused a lot of confusion and bewildered human beings ever since the times of earlier civilizations. Dreams were once believed to only be interpreted by people who had special influence and powers in primeval civilizations because the symbols where said to be supernatural, holy and divine messages from a higher power.  Fast forward now to the 21 century and you will see an vast improvement when it comes to interpreting dreams thanks to a famous psychiatrist called Carl Gustav Jung who changed the way we dream forever.

They say that you are your own best interpreter when it comes to decoding your own dreams. Members in our dream community will help you shed light one the metaphors and symbolism behind your dreams.

Carl Jung Dream Quote

“The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach’.

Why Interpret your dreams? Why not!  What do you have to lose other than to gain inner perspective within yourself. Don’t ignore or be afraid to challenge whats locked away deep in your unconscious mind, understanding and knowing it can be very rewarding.

Dream symbols come in all shapes, colors and feeling, some scare us, and others make us feel like we got a taste of heaven.  Dream and the symbols in them have been around since the beginning of time and will keep occurring as long as humans will be in existence so there must be a reason on why we get them.

Take away your blinders and start paying attention to the little detail you may have overlooked in your dreams and see what you might come up with.  Whenever our body is infected by a virus or a bacteria, the rising level of fever is a natural process. No conscious decision is needed to re-establish the body’s balance.

The same system works in our psyche. In times when we are out of balance with our natural pattern of life, our subconscious sends us dreams and visions that are created by our inner self.  Dream Interpretation is not as easy as opening up a dictionary and having your dream symbols answered right in front of your eyes.

All symbols are unique to the dreamer and some symbols might mean something to one but different to another.  This is why we recommend you start writing down your dreams in a dream journal and remembering the events, people and emotional feelings you have during this time.

Dream symbols come across as metaphors via the unconscious and its up to you to have an open mind and puzzle together the symbols you just received in your dream.

In order to interpret your dream symbol you must recognize that all dream symbols are not the same for every individual.  A train to one dreamer might mean a totally different representation to another.

Dream Interpretation Benefits

A lot of people do not realize that dreams play a very important part of our day to day lives. When you learn to interpret them it is like you experience a new realm or world. It literally changes your life!

There are a number of resources on our website to help you understand how and why dreams are part of human existence. Although nobody knows for certain why we dream, the fact is it occurs every night. Why wouldn’t you want to understand what occurs every time you close your eyes and relax your mind a bit? Experts believe that dreams hold the key to hidden aspects of us.

Learning to interpret these symbols you will learn to unlock the mysterious and misunderstood parts of your life. When you pay attention to unlocking and interpreting your dreams then you could understand yourself properly and lead a better life.

When we dream there are no barriers. The past, present and future is all one in the unconscious mind. There are infinite possibilities in the dream world, you can learn to connect and be in tune with those you are close with or are somewhat connected with you. We all have the ability to dream and do so every night, just taking ten minutes to write down our dreams would lead us to knowledge that could help us excel in all areas of our life.

A dream dictionary provides a wide vocabulary of words that we could use to interpret the images in our dreams that our unconscious uses to represent our waking life.

Dream Interpretations A – Z

Thousands of dreams and symbols interpreted from our very interactive forum to our A – Z dictionary.  They usually include very common images that are close in meaning with interpretations to the puns that the mind plays. Although dream dictionaries are generally not regarded within the psychology community as scientifically viable, the dictionaries have provided a lot of help in interpreting our dreams even by most psychologists.

The art of dream interpretation has been considered part of science distinctively in psychology since the 19th century. There were dream symbols from the days that dreaming was not considered scientific which is why dream interpretations vary in different cultures. This lead to the investigation of forms, expressions, symbols and images involved in dreaming.  The thing is the mind surprisingly remembers every single image and tends to jumble words and images together.

The dictionary offers translations by the dream analysts. It was first started by Sigmund Freud who unraveled a lot of the mysteries involved with dreaming.  He developed the dream dictionary so that people could look for the images found in their dreams in order to relate it to their waking life situations.

Most Common Dreams:

Dreams have fascinated people since the beginning of time; yet we are still trying to come up with its true purpose. Dream symbols are enigmatic in nature depending the culture background, religion and personal experiences.

A snake for example might come across as an enemy for some, however in many different cultures the snake might be a representation of energy rising. If you notice the snake eating its tail brings your attention to the uroborus; the symbol of personal transformation.

Strange Occurrence During Sleep:

If you thought your dreams where strange, it gets a bit stranger. Common hallucinations called sleep paralysis happen just before we walk up or just falling right to sleep. These strange feelings are classified under Hypnopompic hallucinations (HPHs) are visual and auditory (e.g., feeling someone or something present in the room; witch on your back; being unable to breath, seeing flashes; hearing voices being called)  Believe it or not they are quite normal and happens to many people.

Outer Body Experiences are another strange phenomenon in which a person seems to perceive the world from a location outside their physical body. The sensation might be equivalent standing right beside an airplane ready for take off, shaking or noticing flashes as they are ready to depart.

Sleepwalking falls under another strange category of dreaming that is characterized by a complex action behavior (walking) during sleep. Occasionally, the person may talk, but it does not make sense.

Commonly known as exploding head syndrome phenomenon which consists of a loud bang just before you fall asleep and upon waking. This strange occurrence happens to at least 14% of the population that feels like a violent explosion that has erupted in your head.

Hollywood Popular Dream Movies

Hollywood has glamorized dreams as a main premise for movies. Many others directors use dreams to bring omens to come in the near future. The movie Exorcist used a dream sequence to signify future events. We used this dream and dissected all the symbolism in Father Karris dream.

 Psychic or Precognition Dreams:

Once you learn the forgotten language of dreaming and its symbols you will notice a very strange sequence of patterns. Having an open mind helps bring the outside world closer to the inside world; synchronicity and other meaningful events will start to occur. You may dream of dead relatives sending you love from beyond; or they give you hints of people with malicious intent out to get you.

Dream Journal/Remembering Your Dreams:

People who say they dont remember their dreams do not try hard enough to remember them. You lose up to 90% of dream recall the first minute you wake up. Like going to the gym to get bigger you need to strengthen your muscle. This same concept applies to dreaming; however you need to strengthen your dream memory muscle. You will notice the more you practice the more contents and symbols you will remember.  There are many benefits to remembering your dreams as it acts as a guide moving you towards wholeness.

  • A free psychologist
  • A guide to become compete/whole
  • Warnings of dangerous people
  • It will open more spiritual doors
  • You are able to fix past problems
  • Helps encourage you to be the best, get closer to the self

The Shadow:

According to Carl Jung’s analytic psychology, the shadow archetype represents “the dark side” of your personality. Stored in the unconscious lives your repressed ideas, idiosyncrasies, instincts and weaknesses.  The shadow molds out of our attempts to adapt and to be accepted into the world we live in, once you go head to head with the shadow it becomes weak – it will no longer possess you. The shadow appears in your dreams in many different forms bringing light despite how scary it is for you to fix this issue.

  • Greed and lust
  • Devouring mother complex
  • Envy
  • Anger and fear
  • Past memories

So, my house caught on fire, I was at work and the boys were at the house with a babysitter. I was doing an inventory count at work when I got the phone call and everything kind of spun and fast forwarded to the burial.

Then it kind of forwarded again to me basically living in the woods to avoid people, texting only my father once… Read more »

I had a dream my boyfriend and I were in this run down building like a hotel room. I knew we were the only ones there. We were in bed, enjoying a book together when all of a sudden, a small but long (maybe about 3 foot) snake appeared on the bed and went straight for him, mouth open. There was a small table lamp so there was a little light in the room but not enough to brighten it. The snake seemed to be a pinkish, tan color. I jumped up and scream for him to look out and… Read more »

Hey, I am 28 years old and I had two consecutive dreams recently. From what I can remember, these dreams featured a woman having a connection with me. So, one woman (different) in each. I knew them both. They are from my present season. Two women who I am in close and continuous communication with often. In the first dream, the girl warmly embrace me and was holding my hand intimately, with her body caressed and wrapped in my arms. I don’t remember her saying much, if anything but she was smiling affectionately at me. The room was bright and… Read more »

I had a dream about a month or two ago that my bf broke up with me because of his family and told me see you in 6 years, and after some time. He came back to me when he was stable in life and we got married. Now we are broken up recently because of the same family situation happening in real life. His parents want to control him and have overwhelmed him and forced us apart. He told me maybe in the future we could be back together but he didn’t want to make me wait for something… Read more »

I dreamt that I broke into my uncles house who I’m estranged from and haven’t spoken to for nearly 20 years.

I was going to water them but then I disappeared and when I reappeared its like I had slept over at his house (even though I… Read more »

I just woke up from this dream and I’m physically scared! So it starts with me and 2 other people who I can’t see their faces but I have this sense of belonging with them and we are trying to run away from a madman killer.

Hey, could someone please explain this dream to me? In the dream I was happy at first but then I was struck by some anger, grief, extraterrestrial, loneliness and I was mean to my friends in the dream and felt like I wasn’t myself. I started to actually go insane in my sleep. I laughed in a really unusual tone and experienced pain and joy at the same time. There was also one author in the dream (I had seen it before in a dream) that I had invented in my head but it feels like I hadn’t really invented… Read more »

I often have dreams of me sleeping then being awoken by a sense of dread and as I try to get up and run I get grabbed and held down and a Demon posses my body. And when I try to wake up, I wake up in another dream and the same thing happens again, until I finally wake up for real. I keep looping in dreams within dreams about being possessed and it takes me 3 or 4 cycles of waking up in bed to wake up for real. Sometimes I’m even dragged up into the corner of my… Read more »

I have dreams at least every other night of being chased by someone or something with indifferent, inhuman murderous intent. I always seem to witness at least one person get killed, before i run away with others, theres always other people running away with me. One dream i was in a military base and a zombie outbreak happened, running and hiding from zombies, trying to help others escape. Another dream i was in a jurassic park scenario, running and hiding from large carnivorous dinosaurs like t rex and spinosaurus. Another dream scientists discovered a drug that would potentially reset the… Read more »

I am in a large house, it is grimey and dark, and i am unable to leave. There are others with me in the house, i believe them to be my brother, my sister and my mother. There is a faceless entity that instructs us on what to do, if we refuse or do it incorrectly we are tortured, sort of like a saw movie. The entity comes into our room with a bowl of television remotes for each of us to eat. We are eating them. The entity is in the other room beating my mother with this strange… Read more »

I have reoccurring nightmares that I wake up screaming to. They always involve someone breaking into my home and coming into the bedroom. I can see the figure of a male but no other features. Sometimes it feels like the intruder has a gun and sometimes they quickly barge through the door lunging at my fiancé as if to attack with a knife. It always results in them attacking my fiancé somehow or if he is not there it involves my dog which I love like a child! I always wake up suddenly screaming in a panic and trying to… Read more »
