Dream Interpretation in the Online Age

In the mind of us humans, there is an intangible yet almost interchangeable border between dreams and reality. It is said that blessed are those who dream in color and great sensory detail, and especially blessed are those who vividly remember everything, or almost everything, from their dreams.
Others, however, may not be as fortunate. These people wake up clueless or confused, wanting to remember the night before but are helpless about it. Dreams are the doorways and trapdoors to our Unconscious. We don't just dream just so we can have a leisurely adventure time during our sleep. We dream because it is our Unconscious mind's turn to process everything we have experienced during our waking hours.
This is why dream interpretation is a very crucial act. By finding out the meanings of our dreams, we are doing ourselves a favor. We can't help but make assumptions when it comes to “signs” in our dreams. From the olden days, dreams have been regarded as portents, as warning signs, as special messages, as promises of good things to come.
This desire to find meanings in our dreams is inherently in our culture. We are after all, meaning-makers. This is what separates us from other living things: the ability to make and derive meanings from everything. Honestly, have you ever met someone who has never read a single text from their horoscope, or even gotten curious about it? In their whole life? No one. We are forever curious, haunted, fascinated, and dependent on meanings and messages. Even something as trivial as a falling leaf or a passing cloud. This is called poetry. And what better fusion is there than dreams and poetry. The more complex our dreams, the more colorful are lives, we think.
Come to think of it, when was the first time you heard about dream interpretation and analysis? In fact, at an early age we were already exposed to this desire of knowing meanings in our dreams. Children are perhaps the most vivid and active dreamers. As children, we sleep at night and dream of lots of things, and the morning after we immediately ask our parents about these. Our parents will try their best to interpret our dreams as if they're some kind of psychics. And eventually they will clear out our questions at some point.
What it is about the psychic realm, astrology, or even a basic tarot card reading that makes us treat them as such a basic, almost necessary, part of our daily lives? It's their mystery and the act of finding their answers. Admit it: it's peculiar trying to remember the world before them.
Consider this: you dream about loosing a tooth. Obviously, most people already know the meaning of this. Bad luck. But if you want to be sure and read it with your own eyes, you might search the Internet and find an appropriate dream interpretation for losing one's tooth.
Here's what you might find: “For one tooth to fall out, foretells disagreeable news; if two, it denotes unhappy states that the dreamer will be plunged into from no carelessness on his part. If three fall out, sickness and accidents of a very serious nature will follow.” Shock would be your first reaction. But, more importantly, your response should be to live carefully starting from that day. After all, we make our own good and bad luck.
Even though we are in a technology-driven world today where everything evolves fast, somehow from the inside of our body, we still have enough time for taking chances with a professional psychic. Whether we need an advice from love, career and life. Eventually their advices will neither make your lives better nor make it worse. It all depends on how you handle things and on how you apply them to your everyday life.
Nonetheless, if you seek for the betterment of your life, it's all up to you if you make it or not. You can't force the fundamental meaning of life. It will all happen again in exactly the same way if you don't learn from your mistakes. Dream interpretation does not offer happiness, nor instant change. Only enlightenment. In the end, it's still up to you to take the right path.

Don't Underestimate the Usefulness of Dreams

Dream in all its apparent illogicality, is actually quite a useful tool for understanding oneself. There are different types of dreams, but almost all dreams tell us something that we need to know.
For most dreams, the various characters within the dreamscape (including animals) can be viewed as certain aspects of ourselves. These characters often symbolise the following:
1. Sub-personalities. Often they are the parts of us that we are not consciously aware of.
2. Ingrained habits.
In addition to that, some dreams can also be recurring memories of something dramatic (or traumatic) that happened in the past.
Possibly the most interesting of dreams are those of a mystical nature. For example, certain dreams actually could be providing knowledge and esoteric understandings. These type of dreams can provide guidance for those on cultivation and spiritual paths.
Below is a real example of how a dream when deciphered provides one with useful and important information that are beneficial to one's well being:
Lets call the dreamer Mr A.
In the dream, Mr A (the dreamer) is being stalked by some dinosaurs. He is terrified of them and hide from room to room of a building to avoid them.
There are 2 significant symbols within the dream. They are dinosaur and room. Dinosaur is usually being associated with being obsolete or outdated. Dinosaur could also represent old beliefs that are not longer valid or useful. Room represent an aspect of self.
The interpretation for the dream is as follows:
Mr A is being haunted by some old beliefs, patterns and concepts that are no longer useful. He is trying to shake off these beliefs. This dream may be an indication for him to recognise these beliefs that has become hindrances and relinquish them in order to move on.
You see, when interpreted correctly, the information thus derived from the dream is useful. If Mr A takes the dream interpretation as something of significance... he will know that he needs to let go of certain out-moded beliefs if he wants to progress in life.
In conclusion, understanding dreams can be quite helpful and beneficial.For your necessary discernment. Thank you for reading.

Dream Interpretation, How To Use It To Inspire Yourself

We all have dreams but what we do not realize is that our dreams hold many keys to finding happiness and success. In fact, our dreams are inspiring us through the messages that are contained in these dreams.
Dreams contain many symbols and signs that may explain things such as dreaming about strange objects such as ladders or doors, which, to the untrained person, have no significant meaning or value to them.
Every dream that you have holds a subconscious message in it for you. While you are sleeping, your subconscious mind has the opportunity to come to the surface and speak to you. Unlike the conscious mind, the subconscious is not rational or direct. This is the reason that we see symbols, colors or numbers, rather than being told specific messages, such as you need to take better care of yourself or take that new job opportunity.
Dream interpretation takes a look into these symbols, colors, and numbers, to give you some sort of explanation as to why you have been dreaming about these objects, or symbols, and how you can use the information held in your dreams for your advantage.
There are many dream interpretation books, and information resources available that will assist you in interpreting symbols that you have seen in your dreams. As you get to know what the symbols mean, you will be able to get the feel for your dreams, and interpret them yourself according to your own life, and particular circumstances.
How To Remember Your DreamsMany people do not get the inspiring messages left to them by their subconscious minds, simply because they do not know how to remember their dreams. A dream will often follow a certain pattern, such as you, your location, what is happening in the dream, the action you take, or your role in the dream, other people or objects in your dream, and an end result. At this stage you will often waken from your deep sleep.
The trouble is that, often, you will wake from a deep sleep feeling disorientated, and confused, with much of the dream missing. If you turn over and go back to sleep, you will completely forget that you ever had the dream.
The best way to remember your dreams for interpretation is to have a pen and notepad beside your bed. When you awaken from a dream, fill out as many details as possible about the dream pattern mentioned above, what you do not remember can be filled in later. As you practice writing down your dreams, you will get better at remembering more of them.
The next day, you can look at what you have written in your notepad, and interpret what the symbols or details in your dream mean. Dreams happen for a reason, and hold many inspirational messages to help us in our lives, so take note of them, jot them down, and use them to help inspire you.

Dream Interpretation Guides - Why Do You Need To Use A Dream Interpretation Guide?

Dreams are one of the most amazing journeys we all make while we sleep and that give us many keys to understanding where we are in our lives.

Sometimes dreams can be guides to wealth and happiness, they can warn us of dangerous situations, they can reveal secrets to unlock mysteries in our minds and much more. Whatever you believe dreams to be, one thing is for sure, you should not ignore your dreams.

Dreams are so powerful and personal that there's nothing in the world that can compare. They are even more powerful than mystical readings of any kind! Astrological readings or numerology can't begin to come close to the power you will have to understand yourself as if you start by understanding your dreams. Of course, I do like some divination methods but understanding your dreams is the best starting point in my opinion.

We must realize how each of us has the most unique dreams. Not another person in the whole world can have the same experiences and emotions as you or me. We must also acknowledge how each dream is connected deeply with our own realities.

Sigmund Freud is considered by many to have completely revolutionized the way dreams are interpreted. What we have today that we call the science of dream interpretation started with Sig. He began to try to understand dreams to be able to comprehend certain personality aspects and their relationships to an illness or depression.

Freud was a strong believer in the theory that nothing happens in vain, nothing is ever by chance or coincidence. Therefore, the science of dream interpretation was born. From the time of Freud to today, many new theories on dream interpretation and new dream interpretation methods have arisen. You can even find many dream interpretation guides available in bookstores and online that explain in detail what each dream might be trying to tell the dream interpreter.

Are they worth it?

Dream interpretation guides can be highly worth the time or investment to understand what your dreams are all about. They may not give you the exact dream interpretation for each one of your dreams but they will give you a solid foundation to start your own exploration into the fascinating world of dreams. If you enjoyed reading this article about dream interpretation guides, come to my blog at and read some of our Guide Reviews.

Dream Interpretation and Psychosomatic Medicine

Many people cannot understand why we need to look for psychological reasons when a physical problem cannot be cured through regular medicine. However, everything in our world is related-our mind, our body, our spirit, the nature, the planet, the vast and infinite space-everything.
Sometimes, if we are able to fix a piece of the big puzzle called reality that is not functioning as it should be, we can solve all the problems caused by it because this small piece affects the whole system.

Of course our mind and our body are intrinsically related! We separate the several parts of our body in order to study them and there are even several specialists for each medical problem we may have, according to the part of our body that is affected, but reality is completely related.
Through dream interpretation, we can clearly see that all our problems have a psychological reason, even when they can be cured through regular medicine. Many times, however, a somatic problem cannot be cured by regular medicine, but it can only be cured through psychotherapy. Thus, psychotherapy is, in fact, more powerful than medicine.

We observe that several unexplained health problems are caused by immorality or indifferences to how other people feel. Our bodies can also be affected by fear, which is a very common phenomenon.

Usually, we can understand that a somatic problem is caused by a psychological problem or a moral mistake. The person who has psychosomatic problems has to identify their mistakes and change their behaviour. This can be done through dream analysis, by using the only correct method for dream interpretation discovered by Jung and simplified by me.

If the patient follows the guidance he or she receives in dreams, the patient can be completely cured from physical diseases, without the need of medicine and surgical operations, as was already verified in many cases.

I cured a young lady who was unable to defecate and required an operation in the intestine. However, she was able to overcome her psychological problems through dream interpretation and her physical problem was completely cured after 10 months of psychotherapy.

Everyone must learn how to use dream interpretation to solve all their problems and acquire psychological and physical heath, and even possibly eliminate the need for painful and dangerous surgeries.

Sometimes, even psychosomatic medicine cannot cure some patients because their problem is more serious or their attitudes are not correct since they don't cooperate. They cannot be passive-they must change their behaviour.

However, if the patients cooperate with the wise unconscious that sends messages to cure them, and precisely follow the guidance received in dreams, their somatic problems are usually curable though psychotherapy in a relatively short period of time.

Dream Interpretation - The Unique Scientific Method

The unique and correct method of dream interpretation was discovered by the psychiatrist and psychologist Carl Jung thanks to a research that was not only based on clinical experiences and analysis of many dreams but also on the examination of the symbolic rituals of the alchemists and the symbolism of their elements.

"An alchemist was a person versed in the art of alchemy, an ancient branch of natural philosophy that eventually evolved into chemistry and pharmacology. Alchemy flourished in the Islamic world during the Middle Ages, and then in Europe from the 13th to the 18th centuries." (

The alchemists were trying to discover a way to transform metal into gold. However, what was important was not what they were actually doing in their chemical experiments, but the transformation of what was material in something else that didn't have material dimensions.

Just as Jung found information about dream interpretation by studying several dreams, artistic manifestations and the strange alchemists, I discovered the hidden meaning of many symbols Jung could not translate. I achieved this by interpreting my own literature, especially the book I wrote over six and a half years, after a terrible car accident, during a period when I was a complete atheist.

I had lost my faith after the accident, but the meaning of the book I was writing helped me keep the moral values I had learned in the Catholic school where I studied.

I continued Jung's abandoned research in the unknown psyche many years later, and I discovered the wild side of the human conscience that causes craziness to the human side. This way I could clearly interpret everything that Carl Jung didn't understand.

Not only could I find many scientific proofs in the technique used for the translation of dream symbols, but I also discovered that we can be informed about our present reality, psyche, other people and the future by interpreting our daily life scenarios in the same way we interpret dreams.

The interpretations are confirmed by several facts and transformations in our lives that fit with what was explained or predicted in dreams.

Meaning Of Dreams In Chinese Medicine

Do dreams carry any meaning? Does it foretell a future event? What do dreams mean, especially recurring unfavorable ones? What about sweet dreams or scarry dreams?
People frequent ask me but I am of not much help as this is not my area of expertise. In fact dreams interpretation is a separate skill by itself.
Recently I read a book on Chinese Medicine and there is a section on how dreams can assist in Chinese medical diagnosis. This is from a section in the Yellow Emperor's Medicine Classic called the Miraculous Pivot. I find it extremely interesting and I would like to share some of their findings with you.
The classic says that fearful dream is a result of lack of qi in the heart and gallbladder. It can also be due a prolonged illness or excessive anxiety.
Angry dream is caused by stagnation of qi in the liver and gallbladder or hardening of the liver. It can also be due to the presence of gallstones. Conversely, happy dream is due to the smooth flow of qi and indicate quick recovery even if you should fall sick.
Sad dream is due to deficiency of qi in the heart and lung, deficiency of yin in the liver for example with chronic liver disease and tuberculosis. Melancholic dream is due to imbalance in the liver and spleen.
What about dreams where you are continuous striving for something? This is due to reverse flow of qi in the liver and gallbladder and increasing yang in the liver for example with hypertension and poor food digestion.Floating and falling in dreams are amongst the most common type of dreams.
Floating dream is due to excess in the upper part of the body but deficiency in the lower parts like deficiency of the kidneys, excess phlegm or coronary heart disease. Falling dream is due to deficiency in the upper and excess in the lower part. This is often seen in water retention in the kidneys and deficiency of yang in the heart.
What if you dream of looking for food or water? Looking for food dream indicate a weak spleen and deficiency of yin in the stomach. If you dream of looking for water it can imply excessive yang and depletion of bodily fluids for example due to high fever or dehydration.
What about looking for toilet dream? According to the classic this dream is often caused by painful urination, inflammation of the intestines, poor digestion or diarrhea.
Finally what is the cause of the most serious form of dreams, sleep walking? It is most likely due to stagnation of qi in the liver or distractions!
