How to use Dream Symbols
I’ve collected over 1000 dream symbols in my 10-year dream quest and have validated them all for myself. Most of them are universal in nature and I’ve noticed time and again how same meanings appear for same symbols in reputable research works … from dream therapists to psycho analysts, psychics, mystics, shamans and other metaphysicians.
For example: Water - signifies your emotional self, your intuition and sub-conscious Fire - signifies spiritual and psychic energy; purification; passion and creativity Earth - signifies your physical self; reality and practicality; groundedness Air - signifies your intellectual self; your thoughts and plans
Taking this a step further, certain “transport vehicles” relating to Water [emotion], Earth [physical] and Air [thought] signify how you are coping with these aspects in your life.
For example, if you’re in a boat in your dream this represents how you’re coping emotionally: are you gliding smoothly through water indicating that your emotions are smooth and calm or are you being tossed on waves of a stormy sea indicating abnormal emotional turmoil that is negatively affecting your life? You see what I mean?
Your dreams aren’t trying to trick you! All you have to do is learn to understand language of your dreams and to translate imagery you see with your “dream eyes” into useful information you can use in your waking life.
I like American writer, Gail Godwin’s thought on dream symbols: “Dreams say what they mean, but they don’t say it in daytime language.”
