    Can you interpret dreams?

    Can you interpret your own dreams or those of others?  How accurate are your dream interpretations? Do you use a list of dream symbols, or do you go by your own intuition?

    I dream so much. I use intuition and sometimes symbols.try me out

      Erika, intuition is usually very accurate and confirming with symbols also helps.

    I do reflect on my own dreams, Phyllis, and they very often let me know what's important to me at the time I have them and for future reference. Occasionally I try to keep a dream diary, but more often, I just make a mental note about my feelings the dream has given me. So, I'm using more intuition than I am symbols. I definitely do not refer to dream symbology books because I believe I know myself better than what  any book on the subject can give me. Great question!

      Marie, dreams do tell us a lot about ourselves.

    I actually go on this great free website called Dreamforth.com. It is easy to use and basically gives a clear understanding of your dreams and what they mean. I used to buy the books, however I do not think the books are as accurate as the site.

      Lisa, I have a friend who can interpret dreams instantly. He is very accurate. We often interpret dreams for each other and it is very helpful to understand and clarify a lot of things in our life.

    I used to have a lot of very clear dreams Phyllis and kept a dream diary, writing down the details as soon as I woke. If I waited even 10 or 15 minutes I would have forgotten most of the dream. I was almost always over to interpret them accurately ..and their message was usually very clear to me. Sometimes I could interpret the dreams of others but it was a little more complicated. Now for some reason I can very rarely even remember dreaming, I probably do but forget them on waking.

      Hi Jodah. You are a very creative and busy person, so I understand how dreams can be forgotten quickly. -- you probably awake with your mind already active and hit the ground running.

    That is a good question, I have never thought about that. I cannot interpret my own since I do not remember them.

      Hi Kevin. I often wish there are some dreams I would not remember.

      I do not remember how young I was when it started Phyllis.

    I use my training in Freudian dream interpretation to interpret my own dreams.

      How interesting. Reading about Freud has always been interesting to me.

    Yes, I interpret my dreams and help others understand theirs, as well.  I've been doing this ever since I was a young girl and have kept this up throughout my lifetime.  In the beginning I used books to understand the symbolism, but as I became familiar with my dreams and the meaning behind symbols, I set the books aside and went based on intuition and what was currently happening in my life.  Good question.

      That is how I started and learned when I was quite young. Thanks for giving your answer and thoughts, Denise.
