Do you wonder why your emotions are so intense during a dream? Is what you’re feeling real or an illusion? Or are these repressed emotions that you refused to deal with during the day?
Whenever I write a blog on a specific symbol, I always remind my readers of how important your emotions are in a dream. Your feelings are key to understanding the true message, which is why I always ask my clients what they felt in the dream.
Let’s play around with my theory by using the following three examples:
During the writing of my book Learn the Secret Language of Dreams a psychic friend automatically assumed it would be a dream dictionary, which it isn’t. Another time, I was a guest on a radio show mentioning how dream dictionaries are too generic for the correct symbolism while giving alternatives on how to interpret your dreams. When I finished speaking the host said, “I always used the dream app on my phone to find the meaning of my dreams.” Ah, duh, dream apps and dream dictionaries are the same thing.
Why do people love dream dictionaries so much? Because it’s a quick reference guide. We are living in an age of – instant: fast food, phone text, instant hookups for so-called intimacy, and whatever else we want NOW! Sometimes faster isn’t better: fast food can be unhealthy, phone text can cause serious miscommunication or misinterpretation, while instant hookups can result in sexual transmitted diseases or unwanted pregnancy.
