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

I had a terrible dream about my father who passed away 24 years ago. I dreamed when he coughed termites came out of his mouth and when he moved bugs were all over the floor. He was also wearing some type of uniform but instead of pants he had on shorts.
It’s really bothering me. Can anyone help interpret it please.

I just had a really vivid dream and I can’t get over it. I put as many details I could remember. Me and some old friends (from more than 10yrs ago) were driving up a really beautiful snowy mountain. I was younger in my dream. We got out of the car and walked through the snow for a bit and even though the snow was really thick(like 2ft) we weren’t cold and were dressed for spring. We found an out of place vent and decided it was a good idea to climb into it, so we did. What we found… Read more »

I have had the same dream now 3 nights in a row .
Myself and two other work colleagues are going out of our way to prove a client of ours has been wrongly accused of something in the end we get arrested for it. I don’t see us going to jail but we are talking to the police about us going to jail and I feel sad and disappointed that I am going to lose my home job etc because I will be in jail.

I dreamt I was on a farm in a paddock with some lambs I owned and was working taking the wool off but the job was difficult so my boss who had a crutching trailer was next door. I headed over to ask if they could help me with my lambs but could see that they were busy so I stood there at the side of the trailer which then converted into a barn. I was looking at the lambs across the paddock in the door of the barn thinking about the job when I decided to call my dog… Read more »

I dreamt this morning that I had to give an estimate to a new customer in a gated community that you could only drive golf carts in and had to bring your own golf cart. I had to park my dodge on a. Side road outside the community on a old dirt/clay road (all the roads around were dirt/clay) I went into the community and I was thinking in my dream I had been there before (maybe in another dream (when I awoke I knew I had never been there) I came across an elderly woman who possibly had dementia… Read more »

I had a dream a few days ago about being on a beach. No one was there. Just me. I’m in a white gown walking along the beach. In the distance I see a person figure feeding the seagulls. The closer I got the clearer the person became and I realized it was my deceased father. As I’m walking up we share a smile and slight hug. No words. He begins to start feeding the seagulls and I’m standing right beside him looking out toward the beach horizon.

Last night I dreamt that I was on a ship in the middle of the ocean and received a call that our son(our only child) was shot and died. I was screaming in my dream. I woke and my body was shaking. It was very startling. What does this mean? I have anxiety over this.

I did not have a dream. It was a vision because I was awake. Scientists don’t know anything. I had the vision the night before my surgery and it came true. I remembered the vision because I was awake. It actually happened so I don’t care if no one believes it. God and He’ll do exist. I know why I had the vision.

A dream I had years ago (circa 2018)  I was in a chapel with my aunties. One amongst them was with a very beautiful chubby baby and another lady in the chapel was also holding a smaller, skinny baby, I was asked to choose among the babies, so I picked the chubby baby. Few minutes into holding the baby, the baby disappeared from my hands and I was left holding a black cloth. Everyone panicked. In the midst of the panick, a group of men dressed in black coverall came into the chapel to ask for me. They said I… Read more »

I have very vivid and recurring dreams, mostly metaphoric ones. My most perplexing ones are of the German boy. I’m a young boy, maybe 10. We moved from Germany into some wilderness, I’m with my mother and my father and a 5 year old sister. In my first dream, mom and dad are building a cabin. They’re arguing, something bad happened in Germany but I dont know what. My sister and I venture to the forest, only a bit, on a deer trail. I first, see a tree. Its trunk is so peculiar. It’s got branches, rope ties, strings, all… Read more »

I had a dream that disturbed me. There were 3 refrigerators in my home (which wasn’t my home). 2 in the kitchen and one in another undefined room. There were also multiple coffee makers, toasters, blenders and mixers; all 3s. In addition, in the living room there was a stacked 5 person bathtub with a shower on the right side. Each tub had a strange man bathing but the shower was empty. My son had a strange woman in his bed as his girlfriend pretended to not be involved with him. When I asked why we had 3 refrigerators I… Read more »

I dreamed about rats last night. I was in a corridor of stairs leading upwards and on a little opening, like a balcony there was about 5 to 6 tamed rats on the edge. I walked over to them and started to kill them with a small garden fork. Then I woke up. What on earth does that mean?

I dreamt I was running through some kind of a wheat field and I stopped before I made it out to find a whole bunch of stickers (burrs) all over my ankles and some kind of weird oblong shaped type of things or possibly insects scattered around and stuck inside my legs about 5/6ths of the way. And I started to freak put and pull these things out of my legs. That’s when I woke up deeply disturbed and unable to fall back asleep or rid the dream from my mind.

I had a nightmare that started out okay but ended awful. It was within my 6:50 alarm and my 7:05 alarm so I was barely asleep. It started out as me in a big cave like house with a bunch of strangers and there was a tornado warning horn. There was quite a lot of people I didn’t recognize and they were messing with the tornado siren. I didn’t think it was real and was laughing and decided to come out but when I got out I saw three tornados coming towards us. I needed help getting back in and… Read more »

I was in a car driving to what I assumed to be a wedding, with part of the groomsmen, ask them where’s the bridal party getting ready, I still need to get dressed. Someone tells me but I don’t hear and I start to panic. Well we pull up to this hotel and everybody gets out, grabs bags and starts to head up. I look back at my luggage with my makeup in it, someone walks past heading up and goes we’re late, so I just leave the bag and turn to the elevator and start walking that way and… Read more »

What does it mean when you dream of being in a garage with my mom and sister going through old items. This is the first time I’ve had this dream so I’m curious.

Twice now I dreamed I was in a car with my mother driving. Both times the car suddenly dropped. I felt us falling and knew we would not survive the stop at the bottom. I had time to realize I was not only unafraid but grateful to be going. The second time I heard my mom say the word “death”. This seems odd to me and I’m not sure what to make of the same dream so specific and similar details within a couple months of each other. The second time was New Year day. January 1st.

I always keep my basement door locked at night. Someone had gotten down there and was trying to come up. I tried to stop them but they came up anyways. It was a kid..could have been my son. He threw a big party. At the end the house was a huge mess and I said he needed to clean it up. Full well knowing I’d end up doing it. When I went to the closet to check for my purse it was gone. My phone was gone too. I was mad I hadn’t moved it and when I found the… Read more »

I have this recurring mansion in my dreams. It seems to be massive and in every dream I see it in i explore a new part. What’s weird though is that I’m usually getting chased through the hallways or frantically searching for something. I’ve read that the mansion probably represents myself and my self conscious, but that just doesn’t feel right in this case. In the most recent dream I saw the mansion in, I seemed to be there with about fifteen people I didn’t know, and we were all brought there by an unknown man for an unknown reason.… Read more »

I dreamt me and a friend were in my living room. I moved a piece of furniture and there was a spider and 3 praying mantis under it. The spider went one way and the praying mantises started climbing up my legs.
