Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
SHOULD I LOOK UP DREAM IMAGES IN A BOOK ON DREAM SYMBOLS?
YOU CAN, BUT...There are many books on symbols and you can use a book on dream symbols – but it is better not to use one.
MANY MEANINGS BUT WHICH ONE APPLIES? A book that lists dream symbols provides general ideas about what an image might mean. Looking up a symbol in a book brings up possible meanings and makes you wonder how each various meaning may apply to your life. No matter what the book says – it cannot tell you what your particular image means in your specific dream.
SYMBOLS RELATE BACK TO YOUR EXPERIENCE. If presented correctly, a book on dream symbols will tell you from the start that you should relate any meanings in the book back to your own experience. Credible books on symbols give this instruction because dream experts know a random meaning in a book cannot explain your unique symbol or dream. The book cannot explain what your symbol means and its true message in your life.
SYMBOLS ARE TIED TO YOUR LIFE AND MEMORIES. How come? Because the meaning of a symbol in a specific dream is closely tied to a unique experience in the dreamer’s life, an experience that only you, the dreamer, can know. For example, if you have that a dog you love and see your a dog in a dream, in the dream – your pet represents friendship, loyalty, playfulness and so on. But if someone was bitten by a dog and sees a dog in their dream, it carries negative associations to that dreamer, such as danger, pain, or fear.
TRUST YOURSELF WITH SYMBOLS. A symbol always relates back to your unique experience. Instead of looking something up in a book, trust your own memories about an image and the experiences that particular image brings up for you. Doing so will easily and quickly lead you to the true meaning of your dream.
