However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

BLOOD : How should you go about understanding a dreams symbolism? First, think of any situation or emotions that you can associate with a dream symbol. For instance with blood we associate this with pain. Bearing this in mind we can start to see how dream symbols work. One blood dream occurred when the dreamer was very upset.
