Dream Interpretation Guide, Part 1

Why Interpret Dreams At All?

Our dreams are where our deep inner subconscious communicates and plays around. If we can understand and interpret what our inner conscious is telling us then we can understand our deepest desires and wishes and even our deepest fears. This is beneficial whether we just want to engage in our truest selves or if we want to take informed action based on what we really want. We all have inner desires, but sometimes we numb and suffocate them because we’re afraid of what they really might mean for our lives. Over years, we suppress and numb our deepest desires resulting in us becoming alienated from our very self! I don’t want any of us to be like that!!
Welcome to the journey of getting to know our deepest selves through interpreting our dreams.

First Steps Towards InterpretationRemembering Your Dreams

Knowing what your dream was is the first step toward interpreting a dream. How many times have we woken up thinking of our dream and minutes later having it totally forgotten? We experience our dreams and know in the moment how important it is…but we forget.
To remember dreams, you can take simple steps before and waking up.
Before Falling Asleep
This one is easy. All you have to do is to think about remembering your dreams. That’s it. Some advanced lucid dreamers have a dynamic pre-sleep ritual. But start small. All you need to do is focus on the idea of remembering your dreams.
Waking Up
When you wake up, run through your dreams again. Try and remember as many details as you can. A great tool is to have a Dream Journal. When you wake up, jot down the basic points of your dreams. I’ve found that I don’t really need to even write down all the details, just by writing down the major points of the dream allow it to come back. Writing it down makes the dream real. It gets it out of your head and into the physical world.
Review
Look over your Dream Journal. Think about some of the characters, the colors, the events of your dreams over a couple days or weeks. Begin to feel more familiar with the world of your dreams.
