(A-Z April Blogging Challenge)
Everyone has dreams. Not just dreams of success or love but I’m talking about the kind of dreams that we dream at night. Even if you don’t remember yours, you do dream every night. Researchers say that we dream on and off for one and a half to two hours a night. What most people don’t realize is that dreams are rarely literally but are mostly symbolic. There are so many books, tapes and videos out there on the shelves on dreams. If you do a search on the internet you’ll find websites that will help you interpret your dreams. There are even classes that you can take to learn dream interpretation. In fact, I’m trained in dream interpretation from a Christian perspective. It’s been fun and interesting. When people find out that I can interpret dreams they start to share their dreams, without any hesitation, to find out what their dreams might mean. Talk about an “ice breaker!”
In dream interpretation, we commonly look for themes and how they appear in a dream. Just for fun, I’ll share a few common themes that I’ve learned to look for when I interpret dreams:
- Teeth coming lose or falling out- needing advice
- Flying – high creativity and destiny
- Naked in public- open and transparent
- Having a baby/being pregnant- something new
- Being chased /running- have something good to fulfill but being stopped
These are just a few. Learning to interpret dreams has been amazing. It has help me unlock my own dreams and what they mean for me but what is even more amazing is helping others work through their dreams.
Remember, everyone dreams…what are your dreams telling you?
