Dream interpretation theories

2 years, 4 months ago

Im curious as to if anyone else has recurring dreams similar to one of the one’s i’ve been having. It isn’t so much a recurring complex dream as it is a part of each dream that has been happening semi frequently, maybe four or five times this month. I always find myself in some sort of room, usually an enclosed area. In this room walks in some potentially deadly animal. I look at this animal right in its eyes and it into mine. There is a second where nothing happens which is quickly followed by me and the creature running towards each other. I often let out a large yell or roar to make the animal back down and every time it does. Anyone have anything similar? It is not a nightmare in any way, there is no fear that is a part of the experience.

@aweagles91, First of all, dreams are very specific to an individual, even a gifted dream analyst needs to know a number of personal details about you, unless they are Biblical Joseph.
An idea I can give is that something significant, or reasonably significant, has changed in your life since these dreams have started. It may not seem significant to you consciously but dreams are a way our unconscious minds process information.
It is either something new or different about your life and it is either a person(s) or an activity that is new or different. It would be very hard for anyone else to pinpoint such a thing for you as it would be difficult for anyone to attempt a dream interpretation without knowing such things.
The thing is that once you realize what the change is, the symbolism will most likely be something you can understand or figure out yourself, likely better than anyone else can.

my plan is familiarize myself with this specific event in my waking life enough that when it does occur in my dream i can induce a lucid state, allowing myself to question the jaguar itself or analyze more what my subconscious has created as far as the scene goes so that i can come out of the dream with a better understanding of where the symbolism lies. Also, im aware that nobody’s experiences/interpretations could or should be the same as mine, i was simply looking for anyone who had a similar experience so that i could talk with them about the intense and vivid rush of excitement and primeval instincts that overcome my entire dream state when i am staring these creatures in the face after challenging them with life and limb. They are some of the most amazing and meaningful moments in both my waking and non-waking life.

@aweagles91, I have reoccuring dreams where I am back at school. I am 33 and have been having these for years, what I get from them is how I could have finished, year in and year out I am at school but can never finish, it seems as I think I am finished, there is another year or another course to do.
Considering I never finished school, that one may be a no brainer.
Another reoccuring dream I have is about giant surf at the beach, some times I just watch from way back, not even on the beach but the hill or road beyond, yet a huge wave will come and bowl me over. Other times I will be walking on the sand, but the sand will give way from under me and I will fall into the water and a rip-tide will be dragging me out as I fight to get back to shore, but if I do make it back there is a sand hill so steep that I cannot climb it and I end up back in the water.
Now I grew up on the beach, I am a strong swimmer and I know the dangers of the ocean well, I have trouble working out what this dream is trying to tell me, if anything at all, maybe it is just such a vivid dream that has such an effect that I am some how addicted to having it.

@aweagles91, I have been dreaming about trains lately. Train crashes, missing a train, sleeping in the train… I find it curious, but the meaning of dreaming of trains seems vague among different sources. I think we mostly dream of things relating to our own experiences, and their signifcance varies to each of us. Who best than yourself to try and figure the meaning of your dreams?
I’ve been planning train trips in my head since some months ago, perhaps that’s the same idea popping over at night, disguised in a dream, just as to say “Remember that train trip? It will be so awesome you’ll think it was a dream”.
Dreams often come up as witty messages from our subconscious minds, don’t let it worry you much ;)

I believe lucid dreaming is the next phase in human evolution. It is where we can question our subconscious minds and pick apart what and why they have created the dream world that we often find ourselves in. The messages seem vague and difficult to fully recognize, which is why i believe they are meant to be analyzed in our dream states and not so much in our waking life.
