Dreams are a subconscious visual display of scenes in the mind that usually accompany REM sleep. There have been debates about the true nature of dreams and their significance, therefore science, religion, metaphysics, and philosophy have their different explanations for the cause and purpose of dreams.

In spite of all these arguments, I personally trust in the lessons dreams have to offer that’s why I continually work towards enhancing my interpretation skills. In this post, I will be sharing some of them so you too can learn how to accurately interpret your dreams without relying on online dream dictionaries. Enjoy!
#1 Monitor Your Dream Patterns
Sometimes, we all have recurring dreams, they may either be exactly the same or with similar symbols. In order to get the dream’s message, it’s important to pay close attention to the situation of things in your life when you had those dreams.
#2 Keep a Dream Journal
Writing down your dreams on a notebook or dairy daily will provide you with a tool for future reference. Also, it assists in recalling dreams due to the fact that you’ll have to make your journal entries immediately after waking up.
#3 Know Your Symbols
Contrary to popular belief, dream symbols do not always have the same interpretation, they sometimes differ from person to person. Just like I earlier mentioned, when you observe your dream patterns over time there is a high chance that you’ll know what these symbols mean.
#4 Keep an Open Mind
It’s normal to want all our dreams to have positive meanings, but life doesn’t always work that way. Your negative dreams might be a warning of imminent danger or bad situation. So be keep an open mind and contemplate on the possible meanings you can come up with.
#5 Active Lucid Dreaming
Lucid dreams usually are self-explanatory because you can influence the outcome of events. So becoming an active lucid dreamer will put you not only in control of your dreams, sometimes you can manipulate them to your favor. Imagine! That’s a super awesome way to understand the meaning of your dream.
#6 Follow Your Instinct
Many times, our instincts are correct about certain things yet we can’t put our fingers on it. My Biology Professor once said that instincts are nature’s way of preserving a species, it works by combining all 5 senses and the mind. Bingo! So trust your instincts when interpreting your dreams.
So, these are the methods I use in understanding my dreams, I hope you learned a thing or two from this post. Please share your experiences on how you interpret your dreams in the comment section.
