5 Tips to Understanding Your Dreams

5 Tips to Understanding Your Dreams
Dreams can help you clarify your thoughts and emotions, help you solve problems and unlock your innermost thoughts and desires.

Many people are fascinated by dreams. I know I am so I wanted to find out more about them. I dream vividly most nights, I remember some of them come the morning but I know I’m forgetting lots of them too.

There are many different schools of thought as to what dreams’ purpose actually is. Scientists describe dreams as a mix of physiology, neurobiology, cognition and information processing.

On the other hand, some describe dreams as no more than a spontaneous, self-activation of the brain during sleep. So who is right?

What is Dream Interpretation?

If you’re a believer that dreams provide meaning and are not just random outcomes from a brain simply activating automatically during sleep, then dream interpretation is worth looking at.

  • Dream interpretation allows you to analyse and understand the hidden messages that your dreams are sending you.

  • Dream interpretation is all about taking the images and symbols you see in your dreams and finding meaning from them.

  • Some people see dreams as a version of precognition.

Different Types of Dreams

There are several types of dreams and ways of interpreting them, I have covered a few:

Lucid Dreams

Lucid dreaming is a state in which the dreamer is actually aware and conscious of the fact that he or she is dreaming. Most people have at least one experience in their life where they feel as if they are lucid dreaming.

Carl Jung and Jungian Dreaming

Carl Jung, a psychologist, initiated the concept of the collective unconscious. Jung saw dreams as more than just a personal message; he saw them as a universal message that might be communicated through archetypes or patterns of experience common to humanity.

Tibetan Dream Yoga

Tibetan Buddhism and Taoism see the world as no more than an illusion or a dream itself. They view the dream state as no more than another transitional state of illusion.

Five Ways to Carry Out Dream Interpretation

Do you find when you wake you can’t remember your dreams? It’s common to do this, sometimes the odd dream seems to stick and you remember it vividly for the rest of the day.

However we forget most of our dreams so I’ve put together some tips for not only remembering them but gaining some understanding about what they could mean:

  • Form a habit of recalling your dreams upon waking by keeping a dream journal. With practice, you will slowly train your brain to remember dreams easier.

  • Date your dream entries, and look for recurring patterns and symbols for greater understanding.

  • Tell yourself when you go to sleep that you will remember your dreams, and sooner or later, you will begin remembering them.

  • Use your dreams to solve problems by posing a question to yourself before going to sleep and asking your dreams to provide you an answer.

  • Use your dreams to heighten your creativity and imagination by using the symbols to help you create things. This might come in handy if you are an artist, a writer or even an engineer.

Dreams are often a gateway to those secrets held within, so cultivating an understanding will go a long way to discovering who you truly are deep down.

The Top 5 Most Common Dreams

What are the most common dreams? You’ll find they are consistent across humanity, here are the top 5:

1. The most common dream by far is the dream of being chased, which means that there is some issue you want to confront, but lack the confidence to do so.
2. The second most common dream is your teeth falling out, which might mean you are experiencing self-doubt.
3. The third most common dream is not being able to find the bathroom, which could mean that you are continually looking after the needs of others rather than yourself, ignoring your most basic needs.
4. Being naked in public comes next. Being naked might indicate that you feel vulnerable.
5. The fifth most popular dream is feeling unprepared for an exam, which could indicate you are judging yourself too much.

There are also dreams of flying and falling. Many people experience the dream of flying, which may mean you are freeing yourself from something that is holding you back. Flying can also be a sign that you feel in control or on top of a situation.

If you are falling, you may need to just relax and learn how to let go, or you may be experiencing bouts of insecurity.

Dreams Can Give Valuable Clues to Your Life

Dreams happen during REM or rapid eye movement sleep. In a typical night, you may dream for about two hours, broken up by the various stages of the sleep cycle.

Dreams may be the brain's way of consolidating memories using the sleep cycle to reorganise and review the day's events. Or they can provide deeper meaning to your life and your place in the world.

Recording your dreams upon waking can give you valuable clues to what your dreams are trying to tell you. In the end, dreams are a succession of images, ideas, emotions and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep.

They can last anywhere from a few seconds to as long as 20 minutes. Recording and seeking to understand your dreams can go a long way to helping you better understand yourself.

Self Help Books You Can't Live Without

One of the most important dimensions of good personal growth is feeding your mind with positive educational material.

Here are four of the most power-packed self-help books I've ever read.

I recommend that you get a hold of all of them and make a lifetime commitment to reading and studying them.

I say this because every time you read each of these books, you'll discover a new piece of wisdom and notice a change in your character, actions and results.

"Success Principles" by Jack Canfield

"Success Principles" is like the Encyclopedia Britannica of personal development. Every dynamic of personal growth is covered in great detail within this book.

This makes it a perfect reference when you're looking for a detailed and in-depth explanation of success principles, from those spiritual in nature to those which are more down-to-earth and practical.

Reading this book straight through might not be as beneficial as using it as a reference tool.

However, if you're looking for something which covers it all in as much detail as possible, or if you're looking for fresh ideas to accelerate your personal growth, "Success Principles" is the perfect resource.

 2. "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill

"Think and Grow Rich" is the result of the most detailed and diverse study of successful people in history.

The author, Napoleon Hill, spent over a half a century studying people like Thomas Edison, Dale Carnegie, Henry Ford, JD Rockefeller and dozens of others.

"Think and Grow Rich" is also believed to be responsible for the making of more millionaires than any other book in history.

It covers 13 progressive principles which, if applied and practised consistently, can do more than help you to get what you really want. They can empower you to make lasting changes in your own character which will empower you to naturally attract success and keep it.

"Think and Grow Rich" (which was written in the 20's and sold over one million copies BEFORE the end of the Great Depression) is also available in a 20th-century version, which includes updated language and dozens of examples from entrepreneurs who have used the 13 principles successfully.

 3. "The 8th Habit" by Dr. Steven Covey

The 8th Habit by Dr. Steven Covey

"The 8th Habit," by the master leadership expert Dr. Steven Covey, is like "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" on steroids.

Covey provides the most clear-cut and compelling reasons why leadership in the information age will require a completely different approach than that of the industrial age.

If you're in search of the most complete solution for affecting personal change, making a positive influence on others and fulfilling your life's purpose as a leader, "The 8th Habit" is second to none.

While "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" is a great read as well, you can get all of the benefits of the seven habits and so much more by purchasing "The 8th Habit" and making a lifetime commitment to devouring the materials in it.

 4. "The 4-hour Workweek" by Timothy Ferris

The 4-hour Workweek by Timothy Ferris

"The 4-hour Workweek" is the perfect companion to "The 8th Habit" and could easily be considered the manifesto for the entrepreneur of the information age.

Upon first hearing it, it might be tempting to think that the title is "unrealistic."

However, Tim shares his personal story for how he accomplished his own 4-hour work week and creates a step-by-step explanation of how you can do the same thing.

The new and revised version provides a comprehensive and detailed guide for making the escape from the rat race of the "real world" into a life of adventure and fulfilment.

TIP: If you only read four books for the rest of your life, make it these four. Again, it's important to read them more than once, and that you continue to use them to make positive changes in your personal growth.
