What do dreams really mean? Is a common question everyone will ask at some point in time. Your dreams can leave you with a very nagging feeling when you can’t get an understanding of them, especially when they repeat themselves or turn into nightmares. Philosophers and scientist will tell you that dreams are a figment of one’s imagination, and that dreams aren’t real. However they believe that dreams do reveal the true nature of a person’s mind and their internal conflict with life. In any event the dream is a creation of the individual.
Mystics however have a different belief about dreams. Many mystics see dreams as a real experience. While you may still be wondering ‘what do dreams mean’, there is still the unanswered question, “Are dreams real?” Based on the level and number of experiences that a person can have in the dream state and the accuracy of information that can be acquire one can lean more to the belief that dreams are a real experience or an extension of a person’s physical reality.
In any case, no matter what you belief about the realness of dreams you have to start with the awareness that your dreams are an extension of your present self. So whatever you dream can only be interpreted by you, as the dream does come out of you. Dream interpretation can be a fun exploration yet for many people it can seem so mysterious and enigmatic. The dreamscape can seem like such a strange reality with pigs flying over the moon, you falling into a pie whole and so on. But, in all honesty the dream realm is not as disjointed as it seems. It’s quite easy to understand dreams once open up to how your inner mind works and how it creates these fantastic scenarios.
One point to note is that dream interpretation books are a waste of time unless they are written in a way to show you how to interpret your own dream. No two symbols can ever mean the same thing to everyone. Each individual will have an association to an image or symbol.
What Do Your Dreams Mean 3 Step Technique…to help you analyze any dream you may have.

So again let go of the dream and look at it from the outside.
