I believe dreamers should interpret their own dreams.
I also believe absolutely everyone dreams. No exceptions.
It may be amusing or “interesting” to hear another’s point of view about your nocturnal adventures…but the true benefit comes from the dreamer his or herself reviewing his or her own dreams and trying to figure them out. And you don’t need anyone else’s symbolic interpretation to do this. What you need, is to figure out what the symbols mean to you–not anyone else. That doesn’t mean that the symbols of your dream might not mean the same thing to others, what’s important is what they mean to you. In the beginning, it’s also not so much important that you get it all “right”…what’s important is that you just do it…build up your own abilities.
For example, if you frequent a favorite childhood haunt in your dreams, it could mean anything from living in the past to going to your “safe place,” a place from which you draw energy. Or dreams of flying could be freedom…or sex. Fear. Or travel. But whatever they do mean, they’re important to you. And when you begin to unravel your own internal dream language, you begin to better communicate with yourself in ways that open new pathways and possibilities. Gives you more of a reason to remember your dreams. Many even pose questions to themselves just before going to bed and ask for the answers in dreams.
Later, dreamers can even learn how to be conscious during their dreams! Learn how to change dream events–as they happen–and not even worry about dying in your own dreams (I’ve died many times in my own dreams, and was consciously aware of it while it happened during many of them–even laughing at the situation and having some fun with “playing dead” with other people in my dream!)
So, when you hit the hay tonight, give yourself the suggestion that you’ll remember your dreams when you wake up, and try to recall them very first thing when you wake up–no matter when that is. If you can, write them down–or speak them into a recorder. If not, just try to remember them for when you do finally get up. If you don’t recall them still, don’t fret–just tell yourself you’ll remember during the course of the day, and trust yourself that you will. I bet you will! If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again! Practice does make perfect!
