If perchance to dream… –William Shakespeare

Interpreting dreams, analyzing dream, dream interpretation, dream recallDreams can be a valuable source of information.

The two most valuable types of dreams are the intuitive guidance dream and the precognitive dream.

An intuitive guidance dream gives you an answer to a problem in your life and/or insight into a challenge your are facing in life.

A precognitive dream foretells of a future event.

Just recently I two such dreams in one night.

The first one was so unusual that I woke up from it, which is probably why I remembered it so vividly.

I was standing on the sidewalk when a car turned in from the street to a driveway. As the car stopped next to me waiting for the garage doors to go up, I saw a young man in his forties with a bandage on his head in the passenger seat. He turned to look at me. I was startled to see that his eyes were rolling around in his head.

An older silver-haired gentleman was driving the car. As the garage doors went up I saw there was an operating room set up at the back of the garage. In a “flash” I realized the silver haired man was a “Hannibal Lechter” type and he had been slowly cannibalizing this man’s brain. The older gentleman had been eying me while he waited for the doors to open. I suddenly thought, “I better get away from here before I become his next victim.”

I looked at the clock on my bedside table–it was barely 5 am. “I don’t like this it’s creepy,” I thought as I scribbled it down on the pad I keep nearby for recording dreams.

Shortly before 7 am I had the next one:

A friend of mine was a teenager again and living in her parents’ home. She was very fearful, upset and teary-eyed. She kept wringing her hands saying she didn’t know what to do. She asked me several times, “What do I do?” before I woke up.

As I opened my eyes at 7 am my first thoughts were, “My friend is in trouble. I better call her today.”

Many times our dreams are only reformulations of things that happened to us during the day or images we saw on television. And, they don’t mean a thing.

However, if you have trained yourself to remember your dreams and set the intention to receive guidance in this way, then many of the ones you remember will contain intuitive guidance. When we dream we are more open to receiving information via our intuition simply because our conscious mind doesn’t filter the information. The information contained in the symbolism of the dream is pure and uncontaminated by the logical mind.

Our intuition always speaks to us in the most expedient manner. It doesn’t add any “padding” to the information and is always a “nugget” of pure gold. When we are awake it will send up information to us quickly in a burst or flash as a “whole” idea that we immediately grasp. When we are asleep it will encode the idea in symbolism.

Once we have trained ourselves to remember our dreams it also becomes more likely that we will have an occasional precognitive one, like the one I had about my friend.

Interpreting dreams

Dream interpretation is not difficult. The dreams you have will relate to what is going on in your life especially, if you have been doing work on yourself to understand your behavior and the problems you have encountered. Why do you think therapists love analyzing dreams? Your dreams are a window into your true feelings about things that are happening to you in your life.

I knew immediately what the dream about the older man cannibalizing the younger man’s brain meant. Often once you become known for being intuitive people seek relationships with you merely because they want access to your intuitive input. I realized that my intuition was warning me that it was time to be bold and clean house of a particular acquaintance, who happened to be an older person.

Interpreting precognitive dreams

The friend I dreamed of returned my call very late that evening. She is in a job she hates and is frantically searching for a new one. In the morning her boss told her that she was being placed on warning for her absences. She has a daughter with health issues. Later her daughter’s school called to say she was sick and needed to be sent home, which upset her even further. When she went to leave work she found one of her tires was flat. By the time she called me she was emotionally drained and a mess. She said she felt like a “helpless teenager” who couldn’t cope with all her problems.

I knew this was a “precognitive dream” from the way I felt when I awoke. I was alarmed and worried about my friend. My gut told me that she was in trouble.

Dreams are a rich source of intuitive guidance

You don’t have to become a professional intuitive to glean the wisdom of your intuition. One of the best ways to access this wisdom is through your own dreams. And, it’s not hard at all to train yourself to remember dreams. Within a few nights you too can be recalling your dreams and mining them for the pearls of wisdom they contain.

Follow these simple steps to remember and analyze your dreams:

1. Set the intention to recall your dreams. Everything begins with your intention. If you truly desire to remember your dreams you will.

2. Be prepared to write down your dream. Keep a pad and pen on your bedside table so that you can write down your dream as soon as you wake up.

3. Give yourself clear instructions to recall your dreams. Before you go off to sleep tell yourself that you intend to recall your dreams. Remind yourself that you’ve placed a pad and a pen on the table so that you can write them down. Visualize yourself writing a dream down on the pad when you wake up the next morning.

4. Write down your dream as soon as you wake up. If you get up and move around you will forget. We always think we will remember our dreams because they feel so vivid when we wake up but, chances are you won’t.

5. After writing the dream see how you “feel” about it. What is the first association that comes to mind regarding the dream? This is often the key to unlocking the symbolism within the dream. If you’re unsure “play” with a few different ideas as to what the dream could mean. Intuition is all about “feelings.” Always go with the interpretation that feels right.

6. Stay away from dream interpretation books. Interpreting dreams is highly personal and individualized. You are much better off discussing the dream with someone who knows you well than going through a dream book.

Follow these steps until you begin to remember your dreams. It might take two or three nights before you begin to recall your dreams so don’t give up even if it takes a bit longer.

You can train yourself to remember dreams even if you haven’t remembered a dream in years. You can also train yourself to interpret dreams as long as you’re open to examining your true feelings about things in your life. Once you begin remembering dreams don’t be surprised if some of them turn out to be precognitive dreams as well.

Do you remember your dreams? Have you had any that shed light on a problem? Have you ever had a precognitive dream?
