Tips to Understand Dream Meaning

Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's IMPORTANT to consider:

  • Personal meaning - What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
  • Context - How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee - what was the bee doing, how and where it was doing it, and how did you feel about it?
  • Look beyond the obvious - A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
