Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
SYMBOLS IN DREAM BOOKS.Every dream is a personal, one-of-a-kind communication that does not apply to anyone but you.
INDIVIDUAL VERSUS COOKIE-CUTTER MEANINGS. Dream books that list symbols give you multiple meanings for each symbol as a way to help you think about an image, but it cannot tell you what the symbol actually means in your dream. A cookie cutter approach to dream analysis is appealing, but a message is tailored to YOU – and only you.
SYMBOLS AND PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.Why is a dream message only for you? Because dreams are composed of images from your own mind, images that are linked to your own memories, experiences, and associations. Suppose you were an A student in school. If you dream of being in school, a classroom will speak to you about making an effort and achieving success. But if you were an D or an F student and see yourself back in school, the dream may bring back painful memories or stir up fears about not succeeding.
SYMBOLS AND MEMORY. The symbols in your personal dreams are taken from your individual book of memories. By noticing what an image means to you, you will find the meaning of that symbol and relate its meaning to your dream. The real bonus of examining dream symbols yourself is that the meaning you arrive at will be accurate. Once you see the advantage of relying on your own experience about symbols and of using tools like the Five Step Technique to analyze a dream, you will not want to consult a dream dictionary.
SYMBOLS CAN MEAN THE SAME TO MANY. Even though there areshared dream symbolssuch as a smile as a friendly expression or an altar as a symbol of worship, how a smile or an altar applies to you as a dream symbol, is unique. In dream analysis, one size does not fit all. That is why in most cases, dream dictionaries do not work to your advantage.
