I am loving a new dream interpretation technique that I am using. The only thing that you need in order to use this technique is at least 2 dreams or dream fragments.
I started using this technique because I was struggling to remember my dreams. I could remember bits and pieces of several dreams, but not an entire dream. And one of the things that I love to do is interpret dreams, mine and yours. But obviously a dream can not be interpreted if it can't be remembered. Or can it?
Of course, a full-blown, detailed dream interpretation is still my preference, but I have found my 5 minute technique to be extremely helpful when a detailed interpretation is just not in the cards.
So- here it is, my 5 minute technique:
1. Recall whatever you can from at least 2 dreams or fragments of the night.
2. Compare the dreams or fragments to find the commonalities.
3. The commonalities will provide a theme for you, a message.
4. Think about the theme you have uncovered and how it relates to your current waking life experience.
5. Apply what you have learned.
And that is all there is to it. Quick. Easy.
As you work with your dreams and fragments, the key is to find the commonalities. What same things/actions/people/feelings/etc. are showing up in both/all dreams/fragments? For example, I had several dream fragments a few nights ago that involved being in a car full of people, being in a car that drove itself, and being with several people from my waking experience known to be controlling, getting out of a car and walking to where I wanted to go. Ah ha! The theme here is about control and direction. So then I took that theme and pondered over how it correlates to my current waking life experience.
You can do this. View it as a fun, detective game. Besides being fun, you will also be opening yourself to the guidance of your dream source and becoming your own Dream Detective! If you need help, email me. I will be happy to help you through the process. You can do it! Send me feedback- I would love to hear how it is working for you!
Keep dreaming, Ellen :)
