Why's and How-To's to Interpreting Your Dreams
When it comes to interpreting dreams, and the importance of doing so, I'm reminded of an analogy a friend of mine once shared with me. She compared the process of dream interpretation to finding a vein of gold beneath a body of water.
Indulge me for a moment and imagine you are standing at the edge of a grand lake. You have, from a reliable source, undeniable evidence that there is an epic source of treasure beneath that lake. You can't see it...the water is dark and murky. You can't touch it...it's too deep to swim without diving equipment. You know the vein of gold is there, but you have no tangible, concrete evidence that it's waiting there for you to discover. So, what do you do?
Maybe you'd do some research on how to mine for gold underwater. Perhaps that would entail obtaining geological maps to discern the depth of the lake, and the precise location of the golden vein. Perhaps you would invest in powerful underwater lighting systems so you could see into the murky depths.
You see where I'm going with this analogy.
The water is your subconscious mind. The vein of gold is the treasure of your psyche. Obtaining maps and tools to locate and mine for that gold is akin to interpreting our dreams.
So how do I know 'thar's gold in them thar hills' of your psyche? Because beneath the murky layers of our conscious mind and our ego is our REAL selves...our authentic "God-Self"...that essence within us that is pure, liberated, and divine.
I promise you....that deeply rich, inner aspect of each of us is a treasure beyond imagineable value. The divinity of our psyche (our inner selves) is a beacon of light, shining love, creativity, and resource. By tapping that psychic 'vein of gold' we are tapping into unlimited potential.
That's why interpreting dreams is so important. Dreams are a real reflection of who we are, and when mined for meaning, they can uncover rich, rewarding insight. Analysing the meaning and symbolism of dreams allows us to come in contact with the unmarred splendor of our souls, and that, my friends, makes us invincible.
If you don't believe me, get proof for yourself. Mine for your own vein of gold within the subconscious. Interpreting dreams is one of the best ways to access your burried treasure.
If you do believe me, or have already tapped into your own beacon of light through dream interpretation...then you know that accessing your liberated, limitlessness is like being switched into high-voltage potential.
Either way, my experience has lead me to believe interpreting dreams is a vital, necessary act. We owe it to ourselves to shine light beneath the waters of the mind, and discover what's going on under the surface of our existence.

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!
