Dreams have many and varied meanings. Dreams are not complicated - they are really just about the stuff in your head. So think what's been dominating your thinking. If some big issue has been on your mind such as a health issue or an impending divorce then obviously this will probably dominate all your thinking. But if no major changes are lurking then you will turn your attention to less pressing issues. You may worry about the behavior of someone else. You may simply be thinking through some new approach to a work task. You may be thinking about relationships. You maybe thinking about what someone said. Try to see where your mind was focused. Were you looking back at what happened yesterday. Or were you lying in bed thinking about the future and the challenges that will come on the day ahead. Try to establish some link between the things that are dominating your mind and the DREAM SYMBOLISM.

Try to use this page as a way of thinking over dreams in general. Its supposed to be a summary of the types of causes and triggers of dreams. Look through the key words and phrases and see if they could link to some real life trigger. For instance DID you overreact yesterday? Dreams are diaries of our emotions and intuitions. They can link to some key moment from the day before. But overall they link to conceptual feelings and so always think in terms of the new conceptual feelings inside you.

KEY WORDS(to help trace what triggered your dream) : Worry, right decision, doubts, clarify, not understanding, planning something out, gauging someone's feelings, coping, my approach to something , resentments, feeling positive/negative, an incident yesterday, things said

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "I realize I over reacted. I do exactly the same thing myself"
- "I have been unwell and have been trying to gauge how to cope with this "
- "The dream could be a premonition of what happened that day."
- "I have been thinking over this issue. Should I do that?"
- "I keep worrying all the time about this"
- "I made the decision and I think it was the right decision"
- "I keep having doubts about it"
- "I have been thinking over how I should approach it"
- "I have got this great new idea. I know how I should do things from now on"
- "I feel very positive right now"
- "I am scared about the day to come and worry that something may happen"
- "I have been thinking over what happened yesterday. It really stuck in my head"
- "I know exactly why it happened. Its because..."
- "I keep worrying about money/work/relationships "
- "I was thinking about tomorrow and how cool I will be at the party"
- "I really resent how they treated me"
- "I feel more able to cope with my problems and address the difficulties I have been having"
- "Why did she do that? I really do not understand why she did that?"
- "I have been thinking over my project and how to approach it. I think I will..."

ESSAY : What do dreams generally mean?

Dreams can be about other people in your life and may represent some thought you have been clarifying about their lives. We maybe thinking about other people but actually the dreams represent our need to establish clear thinking. We may even be thinking about ourselves and reflecting on our own lives. Here are a few examples.

"My friend is getting married. But I wonder if she is too young. It will place so many restrictions on her. She will just not have any freedom whatsoever"

"I was telling a friend that she was taking on too many responsibilities yet I do exactly the same thing. I try to go at a pace which I am not comfortable with "

Dreams may be symbolic of some real life medical condition that you are monitoring. E.g.

"I have just got a cold in real life and I am finding it difficult to shake off"

"I am overweight and have to work at a pace which I am comfortable with. I was pushing myself beyond my own limits yesterday and felt it"

Dreams can be premonitions. They may capture some incident that is about to happen in your life. Think about the actual day of the dream. Did something surprising happen.

"On the actual day of the dream I was caught up worrying about my granny. She lives on her own and there were terrible winds that day. I was really scared that she could not cope"

Dreams can be about some question or dilemma that has been on your mind. Here are some examples of the types of questions and issues.

"I have been thinking about doing a Ouija board but its all a bit scary. I think its maybe just a bit dangerous"

Dreams can be about some persistent worry. In life we make judgment based on limited information. We constantly assess and reassess the relationships that we are in. Here are some examples of the types of emotions to spot.

"I am sure that my husband has been having an affair with another woman."

"I have just received some big bills and its made me feel down about my new business "[Dream symbol - heavy breathing]

"My Dad keeps watching everything I do. I just broke the rules and now he is watching every little mistake"

Think also of changes in your life right now. Think about how your life is in transition. Here are some examples of the kind of emotions that maybe linked.

"I am under pressure at the moment to think about the future. I want to take a step back and plan things out better"

"I have just broken up with my boyfriend . He was very manipulative and had drug problems. I think I have made the right decision"

Your dream may simply be pondering on some incident or task the day before. You maybe thinking over and reflecting what happened. Think especially about ways in which your views were slightly changed or ways in which your views were reinforced. Here are some examples of the kind of things.

"I was rearranging my children's bedroom with them yesterday. It was a good experience and brought us together. They really got involved in the task and I managed to keep their minds focused on the task in hand. "

In a similar way a dream may relate to something that you have said or something that someone else has said. Has this provoked discussion in some way. Here are a few examples of the types of things to look out for.

"I told my husband that we had not really been making any real progress at marriage guidance. He seemed upset and was very quiet last night."

Think of tasks that you are highly involved in. How have you been trying to improve or modify your approach. Here are a few examples to help make you think.

"I think I have just got to experiment and find the STRONGEST APPROACH"
