Meanings of Dreams
Through Their Symbols
The subconscious mind is a most
remarkable mechanism when it comes to creating dreams. Most
people find their dreams an unintelligible mix of hidden
meanings of dreams and secret symbols because that is the intention on the
subconscious mind. It wants no interference from the dreamer's
input or meddling with any of its actions.
The subconscious wants to keep your mind, body and
spirit in balance and it does so by sending you through gauntlet
of its creations that can range anywhere from a night of
grinding psychedelic terror to a blissful trip to the heavens
in the company of angels and God like figures.
Your subconscious mind does this because you are
its favorite person and it wants to keep you, your
emotions, your mind and feelings in equilibrium. Whether you
wake up crying, shaking, or floating on cloud nine, is no
concern as long as you shape up. And if you don't get the
message the first time, you can be certain that you'll be
visited again with a replay of the action.
Learning the meanings of dreams through their symbols can help
you to understand what it is up to and further helps you to help
than one way to interpret the meaning of a symbol
Symbols can have a direct
or indirect interpretation in the meaning of dreams, that is they
are interpreted directly as they appear in the dream - or they can be
applied indirectly like a secret metaphor.
Example of Direct
"In my dream, my mother congratulated me
about me being pregnant, then my sister did the same."
This is a woman whose dream first informed her of being
pregnant. It was confirmed shortly after.
Example of an Indirect
The Dream: "I was nine months pregnant, ready to
give birth, my brother was screaming and ridiculing me that I
didn't know who the father was. And in the dream I hadn't the
faintest idea of who the father
was, but I didn't care. I was determined to have
the baby anyway and I was surprised how confident I felt
about myself in that situation."
This is woman who was at the limit with the stress that her
job had created and had made a decision to look for a new job.
The idea of pregnancy is related to her being ready to get out
of the current job even though she had no idea where to find a
new job at the time. (she didn't know the name of the baby's father).
Her lack of concern of being pregnant and not knowing who the
father was in the dream gave her the confidence in her waking
life to follow through with her decision to find a new job.
When you interpret
the meaning of dreams, examine the objects, people and actions
in both direct and indirect ways until you can piece it together. Good Luck!
