Inspiration From Your Dreams, What Do They Mean?

Updated on December 10, 2010

Do you ever wake up and think wow what a weird dream? got up had your breakfast and carried on with your normal day to day life and then not given your dream a second thought? next time don't disregard it because your dreams are your minds way of helping you through those hard days or resolving your issues which you cannot find a solution to or even to just give you inspiration when you most need it. What do your dreams mean?

I dream every night now but a few years ago I was going though a difficult period at work when I had the most vivid dream, I was in Japan walking though the countryside in the hot sun, I looked down at a city in what I can only describe as a huge crater and all of the houses and buildings were upside down? I woke up and laughed and thought to myself what a strange dream, I put it to one side and got on with life, it was only later when I started to have an interest in dreams that I still remembered the dream so I looked it up.

My interpretation of it being; Your in a confusing situation to which you do not understand, the green countryside shows that opportunities will come to you and you will resolve your problems.How spot on was this, I was hooked and fascinated at how dreams work.

I have since been interpreting my dreams and my family members dreams and have found that your dreams are a way to release your hidden emotions without you even knowing you had any. The research I have done and what I have discovered about dreaming is too much to put into one piece of writing but what interests me the most is how does it work? Scientist all over the world are disagreeing with each other, one saying its just images which you have seen during your life, another says its bordering on schizophrenia, another says its your passed ones and guardian angels helping and guiding you while you sleep, but after interpreting a lot of dreams one thing I can say is that surely they can't all be "coincidences" which coincide with what is happening in your waking life?

Give it a go, its simple, just go to bed relaxed and make sure you want to remember your dreams, going into it half hearted will not work, believe that you will wake in the morning remembering your dreams. Keep a notebook and pen by your bed and upon waking write down everything you can remember even the minor details which you think are irrelevant as these do mean something, how were you feeling, sad/happy, what was the main theme of the dream. Look at websites for your dream interpretation or get yourself a book but have a go an see what your dream means to you, you will be surprised how interesting it can be, for me even an obsession sometimes. Let me know what works for you.

Sweet dreams

      Good info, and yes keeping a dream journal is essential. I am amazed sometimes when I read back through my dream journal because I find things I have no recollection whatsoever of! It is weird. Even after you write about your dream you may forget some of them within a few days or a week! But if you do not write them down you will probably forget most of them within the day or even a few minutes.

      Keep a dream journal and be dedicated to it
