As the Talmud says, “A dream uninterpreted is like a letter unread”. Our dreams have so much to tell us about our life, our health, our spiritual path, our growth and healing and to not view them as wise counselors is missing a great opportunity. I have done dream interpretation and dream research for over 40 years, beginning the journey very early in life.
Dreams speak to us in the language of symbols. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a symbol is worth a million. They are like zip files that enter into our consciousness and unfold like a flower, leaving the lingering scent of wisdom that is wordless. As you explore this inner language, you will see that your language is very specific to you, so relying solely on dream dictionaries and other people’s symbolism will not uncover all that there is to see. In my many years of doing dream interpretation and teaching about it, I have seen many examples of how one person’s symbolic language may be very different than another person’s. Taking the opportunity to explore how you speak to you, is value beyond measure.
An Example of a Common Dream Symbol – Water
Always ask yourself what the symbol means to you first. When reading examples of symbol meanings, let your body tell you which ones feel right to you.
Water – Often represents life, consciousness or emotion. Note what form the water appears in.
Ocean – The ocean often represents mass consciousness, your larger self and how you relate to it. Are you standing close, viewing it from above, are you excited, intimidated or calm? Make note of how you feel and your proximity to it. The state of the energy of the water will determine what emotion or consciousness it is conveying. Is it rolling and intense? Calm and clear? Use this as a direction and source of the subject or theme of the dream.
River – Rivers can often represent something predefined, as rivers most always follow a course. Is the river off course? Is it transgressing its boundaries? Is it filling its bed? Slow moving or fast moving? It implies movement and the things going on around it, your proximity and how you feel about it will bring clues as to what the river represents.
Ponds or Lakes – Ponds and lakes can represent confined feelings. It can also represent our reluctance to expand or even be a message to tell you to contain your potential. This setting is further described by the clarity and depth of the water.
Over the years of my study in dreams and dream interpretation, I have created, gathered and developed many techniques of dream interpretation that all act as keys that unlock the door of this inner world. I offer classes to learn about your dreams and how to interpret them as well as offer private sessions to interpret your dreams and I invite you to come explore!
