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.

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 me, my girl and her child got arrested and we escaped, but we had to continue escaping from different people, where we got split up by the people who were after us, and I had to keep getting away from them, kept running and fighting away, until eventually I would find my girl and her… Read more »

I had said something to my dad. Something cheeky (something slightly sexual in nature). I had asked a question but he didn’t hear entirely what I said. He pinned me down, trying to get me to say what I said again. He was whispering in my ear. His face was touching mine whilst he spoke. I say I have to go pick up my nephew from school and I managed to escape and ran away from him. He chased after me wanting to know what I said. I run, jumping over gates to get away. As I’m running I’m also… Read more »

I dreamt I was at our previous home and we were outside doing something (not sure). I looked up and saw smoke rising from the trees across the street from us. I dialed 911 and person said to call the electric Co. and have electricity turned off. I hung up and realized that a neighbors roof was on fire. We started to walk toward the house and just then 4 large birds flew overhead and I realized the largest one was a Phoenix. We stopped in our tracks and the Phoenix hovered overhead and put its wings overhead and shot… Read more »

For the past 10 months I have had very similar style dreams/nightmares. My fiance and I had a pregnancy “scare” back in January and I was really excited about the possibility of a new baby and having a family with him, I thought he felt the same but he keeps flip flopping back and forth. This Dream/Nightmare starts out with us having a discussion about when to start trying for a baby and we come to an agreement and then a few weeks later he changes his mind and wants to focus on our business and vacation homes, which we… Read more »

I dreamt I was on a path leading into the forest at night. There was a full moon and I was not scared. A large grey wolf appeared and stared at me. It turned and waited for me to follow it. I followed and it led me into the forest, repeatedly stopping and turning to see if I was following, waiting for me to almost catch up, and then leading me further into the forest. I felt completely safe following it and enjoyed how beautiful the forest was in moonlight. I wondered where the wolf was taking me. I woke… Read more »

A few nights ago I had a dream about being chased through a huge house. The house was all white and wasn’t anything I had seen before. There were a few people in the house but I didn’t recognize them and we were all being chased by people in all black who were shooting at us. I kept running being chased and shot at and hiding . In my dream I never was shot, I just kept running and hiding and whoever shot at me always missed.

My grandmother passed away suddenly 5 years ago October 29th. Her and I were so close and she was the biggest loss of my life to date. So close we would talk everyday 4 to 5 times a day.

At this point it still feels like she’s here and I can pick up the phone to call her. She was always the best person to talk to the advice that she… Read more »

Today early morning I had a dream that I was in the bedroom sitting in the window facing the room entrance. My friend entered the room and sat on the bed and we started chatting. Then I noticed a white snake sometimes slowly sometimes a little faster entering the room. The snake was white on top and though I didn’t see it turn but for some reason I felt it was black in color onthe bottom. I warned my friend but she didn’t seem to panic whereas in real life she’s easily scared. The snake then went under my cupboard… Read more »
