Since the pandemic began, I like countless others have been experiencing vivid dreams. I am not alone in this; I have seen articles all over the place discussing this topic. I will post one below and you can find it in the description for the video as well. That said, I would like to discuss some of my thoughts on dream interpretation.
Dream interpretation is something I learned about early on in my practice. Mainly, through a few books along with a reading I received a long time ago about a dream I had. I find the subject interesting and I would like to learn more. However, for me dream interpretation is not something I tend to use very often as I believe that the best person to interpret dreams is the person having the dream. More on that in a moment. Going back to the point regarding dream interpretation as a whole I find that dreams are ways in which our subconscious helps us understand our waking lives in a sense but that also is reflected in terms of what happens during the day can play a role in what we dream about. The subject is rather broad and I am not an expert. My reasons for believing that the person who had the dream should interpret it is because of two main factors. Firstly, no one understands what you are going through in your life, but you and dreams have a lot of symbolism along with metaphors at least that is how I experience them. Second, a lot of dreams just do not make sense or have several interpretations. For example, death doesn’t mean literal death nor does someone dreaming of becoming pregnant mean they will be pregnant. I will go into prophetic dreams at a later time. So, I feel that to understand our dreams we must first understand ourselves to help us interpret our own dreams.
Please keep in mind, I am not saying you can’t talk to someone who specializes in dream interpretation at all in fact that can point you in the right direction and give you insight. I just think that you should attempt to try interpreting your dreams first before going to them. In another blog post and video, I would like to discuss how I currently choose to interpret my dreams.
These are just some of my thoughts regarding the subject of dream interpretation. If you want to hear more of my thoughts on this, please check out the video below:
