I do believe that dream interpretation can be beneficial to many. Our minds or psychic stability depends upon how we view and deal with life's daily events, be they pleasant or horrifying. In dreaming we deal with these events, either by smothering them in thought, or examining them and perhaps, celebrating them. We may try to hide from worry, fearful thoughts or bad experiences in life, but in our dreams, they lay exposed for what they are, regardless of how we interpret them. Good things, fears, meaningful events in each one's life are filed away for another day all in the recesses of what we call our brains. We are still learning more about our abilities and what our brains are capable of, and dreaming is just one avenue that we take in our state of rest and sleep. Here we can explore the deep recesses of our thoughts without interruption, or in complete privacy, without anyone else knowing, if we so choose. Some believe that dreams are one way of predicting future events, and although this may not be completey ruled out, most people are addressing a fearful circumstance that brings on these kinds of events, in some way.
I have never had a dream interpreted.
However, a couple people have given me, as gifts, dream interpretation books. It's fun to look up meaning of dreams...IF I can remember them. I have written down a few the SECOND I wake up, otherwise they are forgotten. I HAVE had a couple dreams that repeat themselves now and then...about a yellow house in the country I would love to have because of the awesome inside halls that go on and on.
I've had dreams interrupted by the alarm clock, and I put it on snooze, and sometimes CONTINUE the dream until the alarm goes off again. I once heard a speech about dreams, and he said what I experience is "lucid dreaming."
All that being said, dreams totally fascinate me, and I would love the chance to have some interpreted. I DO believe there is meaning behind our dreams, so I guess, in answer to your question, I have to say, yes, I believe at least some dream interpretations are valid.
Thank you for this question...very interesting. Blessings, Sparklea
I attended a WONDERFUL dream interpretation class in the 70s in Seattle, WA from a remarkable woman. The main concept I got from the class is that only WE ourselves can interpret our dreams. We pun in our dreams, we use metaphors and analogies. We are the best interpreters of those. She had us write our dreams down in the middle of the night in the present tense: "I'm standing in a hall. My father and I are caroling..." My dream, after I read the whole scenario was about my childhood friend Carol Hall. When you read what you've written, all of a sudden, you'll be shocked at the meaning of the dream because the correct meaning hits you like an "ah ha" moment. You just KNOW that's what this dream means for you.

Do you believe in dream interpretation?I often dream about snakes wanting to attack me. In my dream I'm very scared, but there are also other people trying to get rid of those snakes and trying to protect me. But interesting is those snakes feel I'm scared and going only after me.

Last week a robin hit my window and died in my hands in a few mins.According to a popular superstition this means someone I know would die soon (just googled it).I wouldn't take this seriously if not a vivid dream I had a week ago, for a few nights in a row. I literally rose from the grave, shaking...
