How to Interpret Dreams
Dream Interpretation
Casual Clairvoyance

Start by keeping a dream journal. Record every dream you remember when you first wake up in the morning, before it fades, making note of any details that jump out at you. Pay particular attention to recurring dreams, including recurring dream locations, as those have particular significance for your psyche.

At the end of the day, before you go to sleep, write about what’s on your mind. This is just good sense in its own right—by getting the stresses of your day out of your head and onto the page, you make it more likely that you’ll have a restful sleep. But it will also enable you to see how the events of the day or days leading up to your dreams shaped those dreams.

Over time, you will notice patterns, and symbols that repeat will make their meanings clear to you.

If you’re interpreting someone else’s dream, listen carefully and patiently. Other people’s dreams are never as interesting as our own, but do your best. If you notice any particular symbols, make note of them. Feel free to ask questions about what might be going on in their life, so that you can interpret more clearly. When you do offer your interpretation, make clear that this isn’t an exact science, and this is only your take on it—dreams are very personal, and even if someone has asked you to interpret, they may not like what you have to say. Even so, give your honest opinion, and don’t try to make light of a negative dream.
