What Are Your Dreams Trying to Tell You?
Since ancient times, people have been fascinated by dreams, in wonderment of what our subconscious is trying to tell us.
When we sleep, our subconscious doesn’t need to battle with our conscious mind and our emotional side is not challenged by our logic, so it’s easy for our subconscious to break through barriers. However, it’s not always easy to understand dream interpretation.
As our dreaming body escapes the confines of the conscious world and enters a dimension where existence is timeless, we are said to be connected soul-to-soul and to everything that exists. In this dimension, we are all psychic.
What Are Psychic Dreams?
Psychic dreams help us connect to a deeper, multidimensional spiritual realm, allowing us to access information and guidance while we sleep, rather than through your ordinary five senses.
Types of Psychic Dreams
Many people get psychic impressions from their dreams, and there are three distinctly different categories of psychic dreams:
Precognitive dreams give us a glimpse into the future, and involves seeing images, symbols or events surrounding the future. You may dream about winning the lottery and the next day you buy a winning ticket, or it may be about an old friend who you bump into the next day out shopping.
Such dreams can predict good news as well as bad news, and can be accurate in revealing even the smallest details of an event that will take place in the future.
In dreaming, if you’ve touched the consciousness of another person and can accurately reveal his or her inner thoughts, actions or life situation, you are said to have had a telepathic dream.
These dreams normally occur when one of the two people is trying to convey a message to the other, either consciously or subconsciously. For instance, dreaming about a relative who is sick and taking care of them and finding out the next day they are in hospital demonstrates an ability of communication in the dream state through telepathic channels.
Clairvoyant dreams convey information to you that you otherwise wouldn’t have access to. For example, you may dream about an earthquake in a part of the world and the next day wake up to news about it.
Clairvoyant dreams are different to precognitive dreams in that you are not predicting something that is going to happen in the future, you’re learning about events as they happen.
Meaning of Dreams
In dreams, things are not always as they seem, and people and symbols may mean something totally different from what we believe. As well as noticing physical things in psychic dreams, it’s also important to determine your emotions throughout a dream state.
Are you filled with happiness or sadness? Such feelings in our dreams can help us cope with situations in real life.
Death is another common subject of dreams. Dreamers dream of the death of a loved one or of dying themselves, this may reflect anxiety about change or a fear of the unknown.
Psychic dreams can be separated into four elements: Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water, in ways they’re similar and amplified and the building blocks of our dreams. In your dreams, you may feel a gentle breeze, be swimming in a pool, or standing beside a warm fire - all offer subtle hints at the state of your mind, body, and spirit.
Earth Psychic Dreams
Dreams which feature the Earth often tell us about our position in life. This may be around our career, finances, or lifetime goals.
Wind Psychic Dreams
Wind in our dreams represents the air we breathe and how we express ourselves to others.
Fire Psychic Dreams
Fire is an agent of change and growth, and can symbolize power and strength in our dreams. It represents your overarching drives and your ability to transform yourself into the world around you.
Water Psychic Dreams
An emotional energy, water presents our feelings, fears, and desires in our dreams.
Psychic Dream Interpretation
One often-overlooked element of mysticism is dream interpretation. We know very little about dreams. Indeed, the mind is often referred to as humanity’s last truly unexplored frontier, and dreams are a gateway into this exploration.
The easiest way to interpret psychic dreams is to write them down in a journal the moment you wake up. Try and recall as much as you can and try to locate symbols or elements in the dream which you can relate and reference to your spiritual nature.
Recording dreams in such a way enable you to find patterns to help you understand them and help you find clear direction in your life.
If your efforts to interpret your dreams are defied or disturb your peace of mind, it may be worthwhile consulting a psychic dream reader.
Dream psychic readings can interpret dreams from drawing on your personal life. They’ll use your dream content to understand your current state of mind and well-being to help unify mind, body, and spirit.
Use the experience of a dream psychic reading today so that you can uncover the true meaning of the symbols and images which come to you at night.
Pinning down the meaning of a dream can be very difficult. It is an abstract and ambiguous process, with little feedback to confirm or deny your interpretation. The meaning of a dream will often vary depending on the specific dreamer, as dreams are a personal message from the universe, custom-made to be explicit to you.
Most modern dream interpretation was sparked off by Sigmund Freud, who posited a theory that the day’s events preceding a dream were vital to what would be produced. He said that dreams would contain ‘day residue’, traces of memory remaining from events, and psychic systems committed to the brain while in a waking state. This day residue is then utilized as a form of raw material, which the dream is able to draw upon and use.
Freud thought that dreams were to do with the fulfillment of repressed desires, desires that perhaps we ourselves are not aware of. He suggested that everything that we experience within a dream is using day residue to communicate to us our deep and innate needs and emotions.
What Do We Know for Sure?
It is not always possible to explain a dream. We may lack the comprehension or skill to translate what we have experienced, or perhaps the dream itself is simply not attempting to communicate anything this time. Here is what we do know for sure:
- Dreams are not literal. If this was the case, dream interpretation would be a lot easier! Generally, dreams tend to more symbolic and must be translated.
- They are also not prophetic. Dreams can tell you a great deal about yourself and your present situation, but they cannot read the future.
- Dreams access all information about yourself, from any point in your life. They know your thought and feelings, your hidden, repressed, or even unexplored knowledge that your conscious cannot access.
- Dream symbols are specifically tailored to you. This means that a symbol with a certain meaning for yourself could mean something entirely different to someone else! They are very personal.
- Often dreams will use play on words, for example, puns and homonyms. This is consistent with other areas of spiritual communication.
While dreams may not always be trying to tell us something, that can still be learned from. Even if not premonitions, a dream gives us great insight into ourselves. Psychologists claim that examining around 100 dreams of an individual can give an accurate psychological profile.
Are the Interpretations Consistent?
As with many forms of psychic readings, there is much disagreement over dream interpretation. It is, after all, simply an interpretation, and as such, there is no one correct answer. Researchers, psychics, psychologists, friends, family, colleagues; all will have a different opinion on the potential meanings of your dreams.
However, there are some constants, some common symbols that occur and reoccur within our dreams. These have generally been agreed upon to hold significant meaning, either through psychological assessment or just overall public consensus.
There are a huge number of different websites, books, and psychics, each with their own views and opinions on how to interpret different elements of dreams. It can be overwhelming to deal with these often contradictory interpretations. As an aid to beginners who may find it all too much, below is a list of symbols from dreams that have consistently agreed-upon definitions.
Agreed Upon Definitions
Falling is a very common dream trope, one that most of us have experienced at one point or another. Psychics and dream experts generally agree that falling indicates a lack or loss of control or support during your waking life.
Perhaps you are facing a major struggle, and feel that you are not up to the task. This can be in any areas of life, be it career related, or to do with personal relationships, romantic, familial, or otherwise.
Many people dream of failure. This is quite an open-ended one, as there is an infinite number of ways to dream of failure. However, common dreams include failing a test or workplace assessment or losing a race.
It is accepted that dreaming of failure signifies low self-esteem in the dreamer, and a fear of being inadequate. Someone who dreams of failure often is perhaps not applying themselves to their utmost, or are feeling a burdensome pressure to succeed.
This is perhaps the most commonly seen dream, at least in the media. The classic dream scenario is a student who has arrived to find there is a test, and they are totally unprepared! This is often combined with the other famous dream trope, of arriving at the same classroom in only one’s underwear.
These two situations represent a lack of preparedness. Many agree that when unprepared in a dream, this represents a sense of anxiousness and poor confidence relating to something in your future. Potentially, the dreamer believes they cannot meet other’s expectations.
Dream Interpretation Summary
Dream interpretation is not an exact science. Often these dreams can simply be taken literally or dismissed. Many, many people have tried their hand at comprehending dreams, lots of whom are very intelligent and well respected.
There has been little consensus between these people, but still, we as a group struggle to understand the deeper meaning behind dreams, the window into our subconscious mind.
There are dream interpretation experts out there, however, and while the term ‘experts’ is used loosely, these people have devoted their lives to the art of engaging with the meanings of dreams.
