How Decode Your Dreams So They Help You When You Are Awake

Did you know that when you decode your dreams, you will be able to get answers to a lot of unanswered questions of your life?

Dreams can give us the right inspiration and the tools for our growth.

That’s the beauty of dreams. They offer a peek into your subconscious.

Many people are fascinated by dreams and want to understand their dreams’ meanings and interpretations. There is no doubt that dreams are chock full of interesting information, wisdom and, when understood, can be a great tool for growth and guidance.

Dreams have been a source of inspiration and mystery for hundreds of years. The end of the world has been predicted from dreams many times. Dreams have also served as subjects of amusement and fright and play a part in many cultures and folklore. There are stories of ancient civilizations that determine their course and strategies according to dreams. Cultures such as the Hopi Indians, Mayans, and Egyptians derived deep meaning from dreams and visions and used them for guidance.

 When it comes to interpreting your own dreams and understanding their meaning in your life, you have to look beyond the surface and get in touch with your subconscious.

A simple way to start interpreting your dreams is by understanding what some of the most common dreams mean:

1. Late Or Lost At School

A common dream that most people have experienced some time in their life is being lost in school and unable to find their class or schedule. Panic ensues. Where am I supposed to be? What am I supposed to be learning?

This dream is a perfect indicator of where the dreamer is in life… feeling lost and anxious. It leads to questions such as: Why am I feeling out of control? What is my desperation? How can I slow down to gain a deeper perspective of the lessons life is providing me?

2. Hiding Or Being Chased

Fear reveals itself by being chased, hiding, or avoiding something dark or frightening. Usually, it is depicted as a person you don’t know or a force that is dark and indescribable. It is easy to draw literal interpretations from such dreams. What are you afraid of?

Often you are facing an unknown situation and instead of confronting it with a sense of adventure and wonder, you discover you are frightened. Of course, this is a perfect indicator of needing more information, practice in a particular area, or professional help.

3. Floating, Walking Peacefully Or Seeing Spirits

By the same token when we dream of floating or walking beside a beautiful stream, or angelic visitors, we can surmise we are living in a state of peace.

4. Attending A Party Or Boisterous Event

Being at the circus or a fun party illustrates your joy in living — unless you see the circus or party as chaotic or frightful. Once you’re able to decode your dreams’ meanings and uncover your subconscious thoughts, you can put this insight into action.

The bottom line is that your dreams are describing your current state of being. The beautiful thing is that once you understand this, you can make adjustments.

For instance, if you notice “fearful” dreams, examine your fear and make some changes. Perhaps you need to educate yourself on the object of your fear or talk to someone who can help. Fear is an unnatural state. Yet, if we peer beneath it, we will find new beginnings, quests, and wonder.

Dreams are amazing tools to look deep into your psyche and understand your fears, drives, desires, and lessons.

One of the things that I love about dreams is they never lie, they are never critical, they state things just as they are, and they are to the point. Dreams are the subconscious mind’s way of processing your daily experience and they bring to the surface feelings you may not have realized you have. The mind illustrates these conditions succinctly in symbolic form.

For example: if you are angry, you might see a boiler about to blow up or lots of red. The field of psychology has developed many theories and techniques regarding dreams. Some are even used in psychotherapy.
