Dreams & Dreamwork

I’ve been into dreams for as long as I can remember, and I’ve always had vivid, lucid dreams with excellent, regular dream recall. It all started when I was around five years old. I dreamed that my brother, who is one year younger than me, and I were riding our Big Wheels around and he was chasing me. I drove mine up the side of the house to get away from him and he followed me up. When I woke up I remembered it and understood clearly that it meant he was literally driving me up the wall!

I’ve since over the years developed quite a unique dreaming system that continues to fascinate me, and while it may be unique to mainstream dreaming, it is very attainable by anyone. I’m happy now to share what I’ve learned and my experiences in hopes they will help you develop your own personal dreaming system, which can consist of personalized symbols that you can select yourself, specific patterns, specific types of dreams at certain times or upon request, and so on.

I’d say the key to understand the meaning of your dreams is in understanding your own psyche and emotional triggers. Emotions and feelings experienced in a dream are crucial to proper interpretation and are often much more important than the dream symbols themselves. Plus what one thing means to one person wont necessarily be the same for another, which is why dream symbol books aren’t the best method for interpreting your dreams. While some symbols are generalized, the majority of each persons symbols are very personal and are connected to their emotions and feelings.

There are many types of dreams, and many levels to any one dream. One dream can address more than one issue at a time, and can also contain some precognition, some answers, some information about an issue all rolled into one, and so on. I get these a lot. I’ll often have a precognitive dream that also incorporates some of my own fears that are related to what the dream portends, so these need to be dissected carefully so as not to adopt the fears as part of the upcoming event(s). And divine dreams can also incorporate learning and answer type dreams together as well. So it’s not often that one type of dream stands by itself.

In a dream I saw myself as a great and colorful butterfly; now I am not sure if I am Chuang-Tsu dreaming I was a butterfly, or I am a butterfly dreaming I am Chuang-Tsu. Chinese patriarch Chuang-Tsu
