Mysteries of Dream Interpretations

We all dream sometimes, but not all of us remember most of what we dream every night. Most people don’t understand how important dreams can be, either.

Dreams usually represent symbols of our subconscious minds. It’s also believed by some that dreams can have psychic meanings. No matter what dreams truly are or why we have them, they can still be interpreted. Dreams all have meanings to us in one way or another, whether we consciously realize it or not.

Dreams are often vague in nature, so obviously they can’t be interpreted by mainstream science. The dreams and nightmares we have each night are subjective to us individually. Some psychologists study dreams, but for the most part, we’re on our own. We can either ask a legitimate psychic for help or try to figure out dreams ourselves.
For instance, have you ever noticed that you aren’t actually “yourself” in dreams, but rather you take on the role of someone else?

Perhaps there’s a subconscious reason why you become that person. Maybe deep down that person has qualities that you yourself wish you have, or that person could represent something that you fear, and so you try to suppress thoughts of them. Unfortunately, by failing to acknowledge that which you fear, in your dreams, you can become it.
This can be a sign that you need to learn how to face that fear, or that person, in real life.

If you’re an adult and you still have dreams of being in school, it could mean that you either miss those days and fear getting old, or that you regret not doing certain things while you were in school. You may regret not doing certain activities or becoming friends with a certain person, and so those things you regret haunt you in your dreams. You’ll need to come to terms with the fact that you can’t change your past. Even if you feel you’ve moved on consciously, deep down inside there could still be regret lingering around.

If you have recurring dreams of being in water, it represents you being trapped in your emotions. The water represents your emotions. If you have recurring dreams of being lost in the middle of the ocean, it could mean that you are feeling overwhelmed in life. If you struggle in your dream and manage to stay afloat, it is a good thing. It means that you’re fighting and you’re trying to stay strong. If you end up sinking in your dream, it means that—subconsciously, anyway—you want to just give up. You should perhaps partake in stress relieving activities to help you stay calm and in control of your life.

These are just a few common type dreams that we all have. If you would like to try to figure out your own dreams, you could keep a dream diary. As soon as you wake up every morning, even before you get up to eat breakfast, you should hurry and write down every single thing about your dream(s) that you remember. Write down your feelings about them. Keep track of your dreams and your emotional state before you went to bed and after you wake up. Do this everyday and you’ll eventually be able to interpret your dreams.
