To understand a dream symbol you need to think deeply about it. Think of the various situations that are associated with the symbol and the variety of emotions that we link to it. In fact think of any link to the dream symbol and you will start to see the connections that the mind is thinking. of. Hearts are actually very prominent symbols in our culture. They stand for affairs of the heart and also a caring nature. A heart which is pounding may suggest a fast moving and anxious situation. We also use the phrase "at the heart of the matter". So consider any issues in reality that touch on such themes. One dream in our study featured a heart beating very fast and the day before the dreamer had been very stressed out. So this was a symbol for such stress.
