Did you know that learning how to interpret your dreams is one of the most accessible ways for you to connect with your intuition & receive guidance from your higher self?
Our subconscious mind becomes awake when we sleep: dreams are how it interprets & processes what’s happening in our waking life while revealing how our soul really feels toward a situation.
Using a journal to document your dreams can help develop self-awareness, healing, & growth. As soon as you wake up, immediately jot down important details of your dream (sometimes your phone works better if you text faster than you write). When you become fully conscious, your mind begins to forget your dream, so do it before getting out of bed.
What If You Don’t Remember Your Dreams?
You can improve your dream recall by waking up 2 hours earlier than your normal time. This gives you a chance to wake up just after completing an REM cycle, which is when you are most likely to recall a dream. You can also try to drink water before bedtime so your body will wake you up after the completion of an REM cycle to urinate.
How Do I Interpret My Dream After I’ve Written It Down?
You can start by using Google to search the meanings of significant symbols in your dream, from running slowly to cameos from unknown romantic partners. Keep in mind that the symbolic meanings you find online won’t always feel relevant, so always go with what connects to the context of both the dream & what’s currently happening in your waking life.
There is no right or wrong way to interpret a dream, as the symbolism in your dream is created by the existing memories & perception of your own mind. If owls remind you of your late grandfather, the owl in your dream may symbolize the characteristics of him.
Interpreting your dreams is a way for you to access the insight, perspective & guidance of your intuition & higher self for a current event. Try to make dream journaling a regular part of your morning routine, & your dream recall will gradually improve over time.
