With so many slick-tongued, sharp-witted scammers trying to convince you that they can help make sense of your dreams, don’t be fooled. Only you know the symbols in your dream and how it relates back to experiences from within yourself.
Decoding its meaning is ultimately up to no one else but you!
Only you know what your dream symbols represent because of the experiences in your life that led up to them.
Only YOU have the power to discern if those interpretations were right or wrong!
After all… only *you* possess the key insights into interpreting and understanding each symbol contained in every single dream!
What a website like the Dream Recovery System can do is offer you the tools, suggestions, and techniques to help you make the most out of the memories of your dreams.
For best results…
Write the dream down. For best results, use the SOM framework.
When it comes to the last part of the mnemonic, you might be struggling with the meaning. Write your best guess in your dream journal. Feel free to circle it and to draw a question mark next to it.
Do you still have your doubts?
Look at it this way: you might misinterpret your dream for one reason or another. You still have a better chance of getting it right than anyone else does.
Go through the process. Just by following it, you’re more likely to understand it as you do the work.
You can always ask your subconscious for a clarifying dream. If you feel uncomfortable asking yourself for a clarifying dream, just think of it as setting the intention to have one.
And you do that by asking yourself to have a clarifying dream
How someone else can help
Someone can guide you through the process. They can give you the benefit of their experience and knowledge.
That’s not the same as interpreting it for you. On this website, we encourage you to reflect and give you ideas of what kinds of questions you can ask yourself. We try to combine science with spiritual realities because we’re both material and spiritual beings.
Understanding your dream can be difficult. Stick with it. It can take months or years until you feel confident about the meaning of some dreams, though probably not most dreams.
Dream interpretation is like so many other things in life: the more you do, the better you get at it.
