Dream communication is a language of its own, replete with “dialect” differences due to culture, spirituality and personal life experiences. Self-awareness is the best way to understand your dreams. Know your own symbols, your own psyche.
When you feel mystified by your own dreams, turn for help.
1. Are you confused or puzzled by a particular dream?
2. Do you “feel” or “sense” that a dream might be significant?
3. Does a specific dream seem to “haunt” you by making you worry or feel frightened?
4. Is there a dream symbol or theme that repeats itself in more than a few of your dreams?
5. Is there an entire dream that “recurs” on a regular basis?
6. Do you have the same dream from a very early age that you cannot understand?
7. Do you wish to have confirmation about a dream that you’ve interpreted for yourself?
1. Are you dissatisfied or unhappy with your current life situation?
2. Are you facing trials, challenges, stress or trauma?
3. Has there been death in your circle of family or friends?
4. Are you going through a health crisis, serious or minor?
5. Do you have unresolved issues in your past?
6. Do you feel lost in life or are you seeking your direction?
7. Are you interested in expanding your awareness this multi-dimensional universe?
If you answered “yes” to these questions, it could be time for you to consider a comprehensive dream interpretation. Unlike merely looking up “meanings” of dream symbols in a dictionary, a dream interpretation is an intuitive counseling session that addresses how your dream relates to your life journey to heighten your joy and understanding. What your dream is trying to tell you?
An example of when dream analysis can help
Many times, people ask me to interpret their dream when it is recurring, anxiety-provoking and just plain mystifying. Here is an example of a dreamer who dreamed a curious dream that felt important somehow, but the contents were entirely perplexing to him:
Dream of Multiple Drowned Pelicans
"I was walking on that road tht leads to the main university in my country of origin , Zambia. The road had a section that was flooded about knee deep. However, on both sides of the road there were drowned pelicans at least 20. I'd spot one like every 5 steps I took. Suddenly I just woke up from this dream that it's been playing in my mind like everyday."
This dream seems to indicate that you might have experienced cultural changes but might have feelings of missing your own culture. There are obstacles, particularly deep emotions or feelings that delay or make your return more difficult.
On your journey to reaching your goals, there will be a lot of promises of charitable support that will be unfulfilled or sources of support will not come through.
It is important to note that this is not a dream that foretells your future. It only reveals what your subconscious thoughts or fears are about this matter.
The dreamer’s feedback was positive, saying that it felt as though I personally knew about his situation. Of course, I didn’t. The clues in his dream said it all. Understanding his dream put a lot of anxieties that he had been having to rest, and he could focus instead of upon his fears upon what he wanted.
If you have a dream that has been nagging you during your waking life or just piquing your curiosity, consider a professional interpretation from an intuitive dream interpreter. Costs are nominal unless you see someone in person for an hour session in which case it can be upwards of $195/hr. Email interps typically range from $10-40. I often provide free interps in the Bellaonline Dreams forum and sometimes, on Yahoo Answers to help those who need peace of mind. Stop by and share your dreams with us.
