Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
FIVE STEP DREAM TECHNIQUE. How to find the meaningof a dream in minutes.
Step 1. EMOTIONS. Feelings and your emotion reactions to a dream are the first clue to its meaning and sometimes the most important. For example, if you see yourself lying in a coffin in a dream but you are laughing and wake up feeling happy, the dream is not a prediction of death. Dream feelings have meaning. Is it a feeling you have often or one you need to express? Does the emotion reflect something current or in the past? Does it shake you up or push you toward a new perspective?
A Strong Emotional Punch. When the impact of the dream is so strong that it makes you feel emotional for hours, it shows two things. The dream is important and the dream may be trying to change something about your emotional state. Feelings are sometimes out of whack and need help, and there are ways that dreams can help rebalance emotions.
Dreams Mirror Feelings. In the rush of living, it's easy to get out of touch with how you feel. You need to notice and accept feelings before you can cope with them so one of the primary functions of dreaming is to mirror back your actual feelings. For example, someone you find a co-worker annoying; even though you are trying to be patient with them, they set off anger in you every time you interact. One night you dream of punching the person several times. The dream is not telling you to hit the co-worker, it simply mirrors the anger you feel to show that you have not yet reached the zone of patience.
Reactions Create New Feelings. Dreams can create an emotional reaction that becomes an impetus or a motivation for change. For example, a college student who has slacked off from their studies dreams of failing an exam, which scares them back into studying. Or, a man in a dead end job dreams of everyone around him being promoted except him, which spurs him to look at ways he can progress in his career. Or, someone who is feeling down dreams of their favorite person giving them a wonderful hug, and they awake up feeling uplifted.
A Dream can Balance Out of Kilter Emotions. Like a thermometer, dreams can show whether a particular emotion is too high or too low. For example, a shy man sees himself giving orders like an army sergeant in a dream as a hint that he needs to learn to speak up. Or, a confident woman who runs a business sees employees hiding under their desks as she walks by, hinting that she her confidence may have veered into overbearing and inviting her to soften her stance with others.
