Dreams, Unraveling the Mystery
A Psychic Today Special Investigation
Whether you have good dreams or bad dreams, dreams are a mystery! Here, we try to unravel what dreams really mean.
Why Do We Dream?
A dream is a series of images, ideas and emotions that occur while we sleep. Those that we will remember, usually happen when we are in the stage of sleep where we have rapid eye movements. At this point, our brains are active and in many respects, have the same kind of activity to that which occurs in our waking state. This explains why often we wake up in the middle of, or just after a dream, because we are relatively close to a waking state. Also, why we tend to remember the vivid dreams that we have.
Just one dream may seem to go on for hours, but usually they last just a few seconds. A dream can last up to 30 minutes in length. It is interesting that we are therefore experiencing real emotions and that our brains are still thinking and having ideas while we sleep. But what do your dreams mean?
Dreams; Let’s Get Logical!
If you think about the millions of thoughts that go through your head in a day, then it is not a surprise to know that our active brains can continue creating thought and emotions at night, However, often we wake up and think “why did I dream that?” So now let’s have a look at what your dreams mean.
The true meaning of dreams and dream interpretation, lies in our subconscious and emotions. However, we can also consider that some dreams carry aspects of our spiritual selves as well.
The thinking part of our dreams, created by our brains come from our mental state. The feeling part from our emotional being. Our hopes, fears, memories and more can all figure in the true meaning behind dreams.
The ancient Chinese and Indians (among other cultures) believed that part of the soul actually left the body while we are in a dream state. During this occurrence, we are guided until awakened.
Putting this all together, we can see why our dreams may have great variety. So now let’s look at the meaning of your dreams and do some dream interpretation!
How to Interpret Dreams
First, do not look at the detail, look at the underlying emotion of your dream. Were you happy, scared, hesitant? Perhaps there were several emotions in your dream. These emotions can reveal actual reflections of emotions you are having now.
Next look at where your dream happened. Was this a place you know? Was this somewhere you have been in the past? Somewhere that resembles a place you would like to go, perhaps? Think about this carefully. See if you can further link any emotions you may have with this place.
Now, were there any people, animals, objects in your dream that you can recognise from your past or present? The psychology of dreams can mean you see representations. So, even if you have a dog who is a Labrador, in the dream you may see a Cocker Spaniel. This might be from a past memory, or simply a dog which your subconscious saw in the street. But again, what is important to analyse is the emotion of what particular people, animals or objects raise in your dream. Or, what purpose they fulfill during your dream analysis. Do they help you? Do they hinder you? This will also help you analyse your dream meanings.
What is also important to remember is that our dreams are a mixture of the past (memory), the present (emotions, experiences, thoughts, ideas) and also the future ( hopes, fears, plans etc.) However, our spiritual connection can also come in to play.
Spiritual Dream Interpretation
This section really merits a whole chapter, or even two! To keep this short here, the most common spiritually-connected dreams may involve those we have known in the past who are no longer with us. They may also involve angels or other “beings”.
Many cultures believe that we are actually meeting these people, animals or entities. It is a soul meeting, which is, for most people, only possible in a dream state. The theory here is that because our minds are so busy in our modern lives, that we are unable to achieve the necessary energy vibration and clear mind to be able to otherwise “see” those we can connect with, when awake and thinking. When we are asleep and relaxed, we are then “more spiritually conscious” and thus able to have these connections.
It is also thought by some, that in our D.N.A we hold the keys to unlock our family’s past and our own soul’s past spiritual experiences. These come forward and are accessible In our dream state.
Dream Signs and Symbols
Let us now look at some of the common questions asked about what certain details in dreams mean.
Birds In Dreams
Birds are a symbol of freedom and are a usually a good sign in dreams.
Dreams about Teeth
Teeth are things we are very attached to, and so what happens with the teeth in your dream may be very relevant to you at this point in time. A good dream about teeth indicates stability and comfort, whereas a dream about teeth falling out may indicate some kind of loss, struggle or rupture.
Seeing Water in Dreams
Calm waters can signify a good omen, whereas murky or turbulent waters can signify fear, or obstacles. A murky time!
Snake Dream Meaning
Snakes can be a warning sign that you suspect dishonesty or are fearful of a person or event. Depending on what happens with the snake and its colour and proximity to you and your feelings, the outcome can be a positive one. But this is possibly something you need to give greater thought to, in your waking life. A snake can also be a representation of a man in some dreams.
Did you dream about being asleep or relaxing on a beach? This can often indicate a wishing state. Possibly you are so busy that your mins is wishing that you could just lie down. Subconsciously, you are probably being shown that you need to take more time to relax!
Dreams and Predictions, Psychic Dreams
Traditionally, all elements of dreams are said have meanings and have been used throughout the century to predict elements of our future. These an be found in a variety of books about dreams and their meanings
Psychics who practice dream interpretation have learned through interpreting dreams over the decades, what dream symbols can mean to an individual. Aspects such as colour, numbers as well as the bigger details can usually be deciphered.
Because the psychic connects in with your energy vibrations, there is often no need to explain your life story to them as well as the dream. The psychic will pick up on emotions emphatically, connect in with your subconscious, or perhaps receive images related to you when you recount your dream.
We asked one of our psychics why sometimes we may dream about people from the past, that we have no wish to see or think about. The answer was, “This is your dream subconscious reminding you how you dealt with a situation in the past. Whether you feel you dealt with this in the wrong or right way, this dream is giving you a reminder how to deal with a situation now on, as a learning curve.”
So, the next time you have a dream and wonder what it means, try to break it down. Interpret your dreams carefully and you may find some logic.
