When trying to interpret your dream, it is best to write it down first. Dreams from the subconscious mind are fleeting and difficult to hold on to. Once the dream is on paper you are not as likely to forget it. Then begin to work on the interpretation. First, try to determine what the physical objects mean by using the list below. Never totally rely on what this list, or any other, may say. Each person’s dream is unique to them. )Dreams are messages from your subconscious mind.) Go with what feels right to you. For example, to me a cat is intuitive, sleek and demanding. You may be afraid of cats. Therefore a cat in our dreams would mean different things. This list below is only a guide that I have found to be accurate more often than any other I have tried. I have taken this list from a variety of sources listed at the bottom of the page.

How do you know when you have interpreted the dream correctly? You just will know. There will be a click, a sense of knowing that you have figured it out.
