Most of us dream. But only a very little percentage of us understands that dreams keep much importance and opportunity for our self growth, improvement and self discovery. But many mystics of both Eastern and Western origins are alive of the fact that dreams hold a wealth of untapped knowledge. Because of its inherently indefinable nature, dreams and the art of construing them never came in mainstream sciences. Jungian psychology is the closest mainstream science that took dreams seriously

This article is an aphoristic description of the method of dream interpretation that I use. There are several points/guidelines to take note

The dreams are often representative representations of what we are experiencing or are about to experience in the near future. I have happened that my dreams often convey messages of occurrences that will most probable happen within a month or so

Usually the people that we encounter in the dream typify the antithetic aspects/characteristics of ourselves. For example: a woman may stand for a distaff aspect of oneself even when one is male in the waking hours. Much of our quashed be givenencies also be given to obvious themselves as characters in dreams as well

Have you ever inquired why we sometimes come out and acquit so differently in our dreams. Well, my take is that daydreaming offers an outlet for us to be ‘somebody else’ that we never had the opportunity to be during our waking hours

Often how we feel and the emotion we felt during the dream reveals and conveys much about the meaning of the symbols.

Intuition and the willingness to analyse ourselves with inhumane honesty are two very crucial factors for boffo analysis

Below is a list of commonly run into symbols. In my opinion, we should always take into consideration the fact that symbols keep sure semantics and meanings that are ad hoc to individuals. Thus the interpretations of symbols are not generic and therefore there can be no arduous and fast rules with regards to dream analysis

Common dream symbolism

Water- tied in with emotion

Ocean or any ample body of water often represents the unconscious mind. The state of the sea often is an indication of the affectional state as well

Eating/enduring Trying to understand an issue/situation

Walking- tied in with larning and assimilating

Path, road or pavement- symbolises life or immaterial Path/journey

House- symbolises our self. Within the house, the individual rooms could stand for the individual aspects of self

Snake- symbolises knowledge

Tree and forest unconscious feelings that governs our emotions

Bridge- a transitional phase or period of transformation / change

Below is an example of a dream and its interpretation


Miss A was travelling to an alien country. She (U) on a train that has a discontinue in a patronizing analyzable that meanders through mountains and terrains. She retrieved stating the train driver that she desired to lighted in the shopping centre so that she can happen her way home

Instead of alighting at the destined destination, she alighted at an adventive place. She had difficulty getting to her destination. She got through her partner (boyfriend). Though they communicated through the phone, she was still lodged and misplaced in that unacquainted place. By this time, she was getting down to get dejected. In the moment of depression, she woke up up from the dream

Symbolism involved

Foreign country- unidentified knowledge, fresh experience Train- speeded up larning and understanding Through mountains and terrains- ups and downs Find the way home- immaterial path Train-incharge steering aspect Her partner male/ moral aspect Queen patronizing center station a gray stage that must be accomplished


Miss A is currently experiencing and/or larning something that is still unidentified to her. It is something that is rather ambitious for her to hold on and utilize. She is/will be experiencing some feelings of ups and downs. However, if understood, the new understanding and knowledge could significantly speed up her self-growth and discovery. However, for the time being, it is something not within her experience yet (as typified by alighting at an adventive place instead of the denominated station). When she sought getting through her male partner (which symbolizes utilizing her moral reasoning), she was still confounded and thus went dejected

Well, that’s all for a quick lesson in dream interpretation. I hope it is advisory and advantageous

Happy Dreaming..
