Several theories were conducted to interpret the meaning of dreams in relation to real life situations. Dr Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung are just two of the well known psychologists that delved into the study of dreams together with the meaning of the signs and symbols experienced in a dream. Although interpretation of dreams may depend on one’s personal experiences, there are universal signs and symbols that can give you the hint of what your dreams mean. The following are just a few.
Animals stand for an instinct or emotion which may be possessed or longs to be possessed by the dreamer. Birds may signify freedom especially if you long to be free from something or someone. Direction can also stand for the unexplored areas of your personality. The same is true with the colors which can be subjected to various interpretations. The color black could mean guilt and other heavy emotions. White would refer to purity, yellow with happiness and green for rejuvenation or growth and development in one’s life. A person with illness could constantly dream with the color green element as expression as his longing to be healed.
The setting or the background where the dream took place may just be an extension of the real places you’ve been to or the location you want to see, visit or explore. Dry barren land like deserts could stand for the suppressed feelings and longings but is trying to find ways to be ventilated or expressed.
What your dreams really mean as well as the interpretation of the signs, symbols and other elements can be known by looking into your real everyday living. Dreams often come in series which may be similar to the chain of events that happen in your waking hours. You are the holder of the key that will unlock the real interpretation and meaning of your dreams although you could be subjected to mistakes in drawing out the message that it implies. However don’t be too serious or intense in concentration and focus since it may drain out your energy. Have fun and enjoy.
Aside from the fun and thrill of unleashing the possible meaning of your dreams, creativity and imagination can as well be sparked up. Incubating your dream to recall it during your waking hours can now be possible. Dream incubation has been in practice since the time of the classic Greeks. They use it to talk with the gods for guidance and healing. They have temples where they conduct the rituals and ceremonies for the dream or vision to take place. Aside from personal contact, dreams are also used by the gods to convey their messages to the mortals as what the Greeks believe.
Nowadays dream incubation does not have to pass through rituals and ceremonies. It is used not as a means to talk with the gods but to explore the consciousness by bridging the dreaming and the waking areas of the mind. Its main aim is to be aware that you are dreaming to establish contact with the elements in the dream.
