Symbolism of Dreams

Effectively, when we commit to the study of dreams, we are telling the universe we're serious about dispelling obscurities in the realms of our life experience.

Furthermore, when we begin to understand dream symbolism, we get a bigger picture to the sometimes puzzling nature of our lives. We begin to see the interconnectedness of all things, and learn how we can apply this knowledge of connection to our everyday life. By doing this, we gain a silent internal strength that allows for further growth, and ultimate success in effectively living life.

As you review the page links below, please keep in mind that symbol interpretation is a very personal process.

Examination of our dreams results in a broader understanding of who we are, our environment, where we are going, and where we need to be.

Understanding Dream Meanings Can Facilitate:

  • Personal clarity
  • Fuller identity
  • Spiritual clarity
  • Resolution to internal conflict
  • Deeper understanding of ourselves
  • Discovery of passion
  • Identification of purpose

You've read it on almost every page of this website - I'll say it again: Ultimately, it is YOU, and you alone who determines a meaning of a symbol. I'm just offering perspective from my own observations and personal work in this arena.

Whether in nature, at work, or in dreams, symbols saturate. They choose you, and it is up to you to interpret these symbols. Meditate, communicate and ponder the symbolic impulses that come to your awareness. Their messages are incredibly revealing and profound.

Having said all that, please enjoy these pages on dream symbolism on this site. I hope these articles on dream meaning will catapult you into new states of awareness and deeper understanding.

An Important Note About Signs, Symbols and Their Meanings

Signs and symbols cultivate their meanings according to culture, context, passage of time in society as well as mass societal opinion. What's cool and highly important is that signs and symbols earn their most powerful meanings from our own personal perspectives.

This website strives to provide you with the best, time-honored information when defining signs and symbols. However, in the final analysis, "Beauty (and symbolism) is in the eye of the beholder."

Having said that, it's in our best interest to invest the time to do personal research on symbolic events happening to us. This website is just one perspective in an ocean of variety and diversity in the realm of symbolism. So dive in! There is a whole universe of deeper meanings to explore! You can start your research by clicking on the links at the end or to the side of this page. Odds are good I've got a follow-up article about this symbolic topic. ;)

As always, thanks for your willingness to learn more about the language of symbolism. It's a language that is universal and everywhere. It's super-groovy to travel with you on your symbolic path, and maybe offer a little translation along the way. Thanks for reading and exploring!
