Dream Symbol Interpretation

Dream Symbols When interpreting your dreams, always start with the strongest and most vivid image that appeared in your dream. For example, a spider is a classic dream symbol.

Start by thinking of word associations that relate to the symbol in your dream. For example, when you think of spiders, what comes to mind? Do you immediately think that it is a predator? Or do you admire its creativity? After all, it's web is not only an engineering masterpiece, but a work of art. Spiders diligently construct their webs and wait patiently for food to appear, so... do you need to be more creative? Or do you wish to be more patient?

Even if your life is great, you may have hidden fears that you aren't even aware of.

Next, think of popular expressions that relate to spiders. If you wake from a spider dream, consider that it might indicate that you are caught in an uncomfortable or sticky situation in real life, or a tangled web: 'o, what a tangled web we weave...' What web are you being drawn into? Or are you setting a trap for someone else?

Next, think of the location in which the dream symbol appears. Where is the spider - in your home, workplace or somewhere in nature? Also consider what your feelings towards the dream symbol are. If you're afraid, consider whether the fear is realistic. Maybe someone or something seems scary in real life, but is actually quite harmless on closer inspection.

Pay attention to the answers that come to you. It's helpful to take the time to unravel the meanings of your dreams. As Sigmund Freud famously said, dreams are the royal road to the unconscious. Add to that Carl Jung's beliefs that you can change your life through conscious dreaming and you may agree with me that your dreams are key to understanding information that is deep in the subconscious and unconscious - information that is often overlooked in real life.

Your dreams can give deeper meaning to your thoughts, feelings, aspirations and relationships. It's a wonderful tool to enrich your life.
