Through dreams it is possible to learn more about yourself. In fact, dreams have a way of transforming your life, as long as you are able to interpret what they really mean. Successful dream interpretations can lead you to better self-discovery, allowing you to deal with past issues, heal erstwhile grievances, and overcome fears.
Recall you dreams
In order to recall your dreams successfully, you need to be able to record you dream immediately or several minutes after having woken up. Thus it will be helpful if you place a notepad or your dream journal and a pen by you bedside.
If you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night, you can jot down your dreams too. In order to recall your dreams successfully, it is best to put them in writing not more 10 minutes after waking up.
Also, you should try to be as still possible, as too much movement upon waking up can cause you to forget your dream within minutes.
Searching for dream symbols
Dreams are often filled with symbols. Dreaming of an alligator does not necessarily mean that you will be attacked by an alligator on your next visit to the zoo. This could be symbolic of hidden dangers in your life which you need to be wary of.
Dream dictionaries and dream interpretation experts can help you uncover the meaning behind your dreams, but if you want to get a really accurate interpretation of your dream, you need to be able to associate the dream with certain events or patterns in your waking life.
Dreams can speak a lot about your fears, anxieties, hopes, hidden desires, and buried feelings. Although dreams can lead to self-discovery, it can also lead you to constructive change. With an accepting attitude and keen perception, you can use your dreams to really understand who you are.
