How Do You Understand Your Dreams?


I have had dreams that have become true. Some of my dreams are really direct showing colors, or people or even some events that might be an upcoming event that will happen to me. An example would be a dream of last night where I had a friend of mine playing a certain sport. The next day I met a man with the same name, we began talking and he mentioned he played the same sport as the guy in my dream. Those are obvious hints that could be related.

I guess my question is, how can I understand when a dream has a meaning to it? Do I just wait and anticipate what will come true from one of my dreams?

Another thing about my dreams, is why are some of them soo random? Should I exclude those dreams, or do they mean something too?

Do all dreams mean something?

What are some meanings that have happened to you, and that I could maybe relate too. Like if water has a certain meaning, or a dog?

I'm just really trying to understand my dreams, because they do come true at times, I think they would even more if I could understand my dreams more.

I also would like to know if anyone has had dreams come true that did not involve them with the outcome? Has anyone ever predicting awful events that happened, like 9/11 or Hurricanes?

Thanks for taking the time to help me, and give advice.

I really like the article by AnneV and when I read the part about other dimensions it reminded me of a dream where I was observing someone in what I took to be another dimension. Now I wonder if it was me. If it was, I had very large knees and elbows? Strange thought. Anyway.

I have read some books by Gayle Delaney and I see she now has a web-site. In the book Living Your Dreams she has a twenty question thing that really helps me interpret my dreams. She take the approach that only you have the knowledge to interpret your own dreams. Her questions are designed to help you do that.

You mentioned dreaming about a dog and that was one of the example in one of her books. If you had a dog when growing up and it was you best, most loyal friend, a dream about a dog might have meaning like that. If you got chewed up by a dog when you were a kid, the dog in your dream might have a different meaning. So saying a dog means the same thing for all people may not be correct.

I know a girl who has a book on dream interpretations that she is very familiar with. I believe that her dreams use the symbols in her dream book to give her messages in some of her dreams. It seems to me like that might limit the number of interpretations. I'm not sure. But it sure seems to work for her. She seems to be able to use certain key thing from the book to give insight into others dreams like water representing emotions fit a dream I had, but I've had dreams where water represented spirituality too.

I stick to interpreting my own dreams with the Gayle Delaney searching questions, but I can't say another way is wrong. I would think the way I do it might be more complete and detailed. Each to his own though. I agree that the most important thing as AnneV said is, write them down. Go over them later and look into what dream objects, people, etc. Mean to you.

I think we all have different cases in how to interpret dreams. Well, I don't rely on those dream dictionaries. Sometimes dreams can be literal, others figurative. When the dreams aren't of future events, they tell me what's going on in me and around me. Like a visual summary of my life so far. Sometimes things that materialize in my dreams will symbolize something or someone. A dog in my case would probably a childhood fear as I was traumatized before by a dog. In predicting stuff, I haven't predicted any major event but I can say that I've seen my future events like talking to somebody about this and that, reacting to something and finding I have the exact same reaction when it happens, having the same trail of thought and the like. I can't control my dreams and most of them are quite violent as that serves to remind me my insecurities and how others see me should I have chosen another path.

I agree with amanda1. Keeping a dream journal is probably the best advice. I keep a dream journal. It's nice to have written validation of psychic dreams. As well it is nice to keep a record of just regular, old symbolic dreams. I can review my journal and look back on my regular, old symbolic dreams and see correspondences with what was going on in my life at the time. Very therapeutic.

I have had psychic dreams from the time I was a small child and so have studied them in great depth. Yes, all dreams do have meanings. Some dreams relate to what you are personally going through at the time and may present themselves to help guide you and some dreams may actually predict a future outcome.

Dream symbols are just what they say they are...symbols. You could buy a dream dictionary and look up the meanings to the specific dream symbols but I would not do that if I were you. Because once you read that snakes for instance mean someone is out to get you then that dream symbol has now been entered in your subconscious and you will relate all snake dreams to that outcome. And here is why I say not to do that: you may be someone who actually likes snakes, keeps them as pets and so a snake dream would have a very different meaning for you. Here is what I suggest you can do.

Keep a pad of paper and pen by your bed. As soon as you wake up, write down your dream. Do not let your feet hit the floor just write down every thing, every little detail you can. Write down your feelings about the dream, were you scared, happy... What do you think the dream means?

Later, when you are "awake" circle all the "dream symbols" (like blonde hair, rabbit, car, home, etc.) and decide what those things mean to you. As you keep doing this you will perfect your own unique dream dictionary. And then as things happen in your waking life that you think you foretold in your dream. Go back and write the results on that page.

REALLY, Chetyre? I did not hear that about Sylvia Brown. How interesting. Thank you for that plug. 😊

Dreams are VERY personal. At times, they can make something as "simple" as a bad day look like the Apocalypse.
The "trick" in deciphering your own dreams, is to have a firm understanding of how YOUR mind works. What PICTURES represent WHAT to you. Not everyone "pictures" things in the same way. Not everyone gets the same FEEL when in a situation.
I would suggest you check out AnneV's article on this site up there at the top left hand of the screen.
Also perhaps Dream Central is a very informative, and interesting site.
Thank you.

Ooh. I know what you're going through. The latter portion of my sophomore year of high school turned into a living hell because of precognition. I was having dreams every night that would come true the very next day. It panicked me (because I saw awful, awful things) and I was too afraid to go to school or leave my house because I didn't want those things to happen.

What I can tell you though is not to let them impact you so much. Yes, your dreams are important, no matter how mundane or ridiculous they seem, but you can't let your natural intuitive ability become an object of fear. You have to tell yourself that whatever happens was meant to happen. Don't beat yourself up for not being able to prevent something. It's not your fault and in most cases, it can't be helped.

I advise you to write down all of your dreams in a notebook or journal so you can read through them and make parallels to your life. Draw pictures, include as many details as you can. It'll help you in the long run, believe me.

(and yes, I've predicted some significant stuff. 9/11, the 2004 tsunami, Katrina, a school shooting, two traumatic family events, the earthquake in Chile, and 4 family deaths.)

I am sorry but I would not rely on Sylvia Browne to disseminate anything of truth. She has already been discovered to be a fraud.

Secondly dream symbols are not as universal as we have been told; a dream of water, for example may be common but it will not represent the same thing for every person.

Also one needs to take into account the culture, let's say you dream of the Hindu deity Lakshmi, now if you grew up in that culture where it is seen as common place its meaning may have different implications then someone who is in the western culture.

No single book on dreams will EVER be able to define your dreams for you, they can be used as guides but the real meaning comes only from introspection and reflection.

Sometimes what we dream is simply a reflection of stuff we have taken in during the day or week... Sometimes if there is something we are enamored, impressed or interested in will be used as material for dreams.

At any rate don't place all your bets on $ylvia Browne. She may be ok but she is far from being an expert.

Don't vote me down all at once, take turns now, ok? 😊

Lately I've had weird dreams to so I decided to get a book about dreams. The book is called book of dreams by Sylvia Browne. Ever dream means something, every dream. There are 5 different types of dreams, prophetic dreams, release dreams, wish dreams, information and solving problem dreams, and astral visits. If you'd like to know more email me at angle_chelsea_devil [at] or go and buy the book. 😁

Dreams can be literal, symbolic, or just be dreams. Pay attention to the feeling you get when your in a dream. Random one's can simply be a dream, or it could be symbolic.

Some dreams are just that- dreams. For every dream you have, think about what the feeling of the dream was. If it has a certain... Feeling of importance, it's usually a psychic dream. It'd probably be good to have a dream journal.

If I were you, I would treat a dream as "This may be real, but it may not." If the dream was about danger, just be careful, and avoid a situation where something such as that may happen.

Lots of people predicited 9/11 in dreams and visions. Problem was, no one knew EXACTLY what was going to happen. Plus, many of the dreams were just New York City covered in ash, or seeing a burning sky. No one could really anticipate a terrorist attack. And even if the could, not many government officals would heed a warning because I psychic told them they dreamed of a terrorist hijacking a plane and crashing them into the Twin Towers.

Hope this helped!

Blessed be
Lolli ❤

This is a very complicated question. One to which I don't have all the answers. However, I can tell you what I know of from my experiences. Hopefully this will help you a little.

I have precognitive dreams. I have had this all my life. I can remember having them when I was 3. They are hard to understand because a lot of times it's not until the event is happening that I realize said dream was precognitive. I've tried to make myself more aware of my dreams so that I can predict which dreams are precognitive and which are not but it's sometimes hit and miss. For the most part, what I have figured out is that my psychic dreams are very vivid in ways that other dreams are not.

In addition, my psychic dreams are never symbolic. I dream the events exactly as they happen. Exactly. Exactly. Same colors, same words, same settings, same everything. However, my aunt has had symbolic psychic dreams. For instance, she noticed a pattern. Whenever she dreams of her ex-husband's family welcoming someone into heaven, she then knows that someone is going to die and that the death will affect someone close to her. Just last week, she had a dream that her ex-husband's family welcomed someone into heaven. Shortly after that dream she learned that her son's girlfriend committed suicide. Her son was naturally very upset and she understood why she had had that dream. However, that is very personal to her. Thus, I would think that with symbolic psychic dreams you will need to decide for yourself what the symbols mean because they have personal meaning to you. What is symbolic for one person will have a different meaning for another.

I used to think my dreams were random. I can remember once dreaming about a guy, a classmate, making fun of a girl, a grade below us. Why I would dream about these two people who I did not hang out with I didn't know. Looking back on my dreams I wonder if they are as random I used to think. Usually, those 'random' dreams had people who had quite literally walked past me. Or, something happened in those 'random' dreams which aroused an emotional response in me.

I've noticed that the more I pay attention to my dreams the more psychic dreams I have. I have also noticed that this is somehow tied in with my emotions. If I'm feeling depressed, I tend to not have many psychic dreams. Thus, if you want more psychic dreams try paying more attention to all your dreams. A dream journal is a good place to start.

Yes, all dreams do have meaning. They may not all be psychic dreams but every dream we have is meaningful to us. The more you pay attention to your dreams, even the ones which are not psychic, the more you will learn about yourself, your choices, and your life. The more you learn the more you will grow in spirit the more 'psychic' experiences you will have.

Good luck. I hope this gives you some ideas.

Some dreams will have more apparant meanings than others. You mentioned having some completely random dreams, and whether they can mean something. Yes, they can.
Dreams are symbolic, and the thing about symbols is that they mean different things to different people. You have to look at your dreams, pick out the details, even the most seemingly random ones, and decide for yourself if those details represent something to you.
