DREAM INTERPRETATION AND IT’S PROBLEMS. SECOND PART.

Dreams Are Magical

The first problem with dreams it’s not how to interpret them, that comes later, the first one it’s to remember them!

It’s well known, that as we age we forget everything specially our short memory, I am at that stage, where I can spend many minutes going crazy looking for something I just put down, somewhere, and cannot figure where?

Despite being methodical, as I age it seems to go with the territory, my dear mother when I was young used to go crazy trying to figure out where she left this or that, in my naivety as a child couldn’t figure out how mother could forget so easily such things?

Well, now I know!

Hardly a day go through, when something so simple as putting something away, can disappear, like if by magic!

Mother wherever you may be, please forgive me! It seems I am even worst than you, on that respect, I just recently moved to another house, and packed everything, and I am going like crazy to find things I know I did pack them, where they are, I will figure out eventually when I finish unpacking, I am not in a hurry, the whole thing of moving it’s just exhausting!

We spend a third of our lives sleeping, and dreaming, and we forget almost instantly, after waking up within a minute, what was the last dream we had, so the first rule about interpreting dreams it is to write them down immediately!

Of course if the dream wakes you up the moment you dream it, that’s an important dream, your subconscious, is telling you, its important to remember, therefore dreams can be very impressive, for you to recall them later.

And the reason you may have very impressive cinematic dreams.

This Dream Is Trying To Tell You Something Yes, they are telling you not to forget them, since it’s very important for you to be aware, at something you are likely oblivious of it. And consequently in danger to run soon into problems.

So if you are serious, pay attention to dreams and be methodical, and keep a dream diary by your bed and make a habit of writing them down.

How Keeping a Dream Journal Benefits Your Waking Life

  • It reduces stress.

  • It makes you more creative.

  • It helps you remember an amazing idea.

  • It helps you solve problems.

  • It helps you learn from mistakes.

Dream Journal

An the best part, you will be able to figure up what the dream was all about it, even if may take you not days, but weeks,  months, or more to figure it all up, once you reread your diary.

  1. broodjejaap says:

    Yes, i usualy run out of bed in the morning to write down a number of key-words i had kept repeating again and again in my half conscious sleep phase, just before i wake up. That is a very fertile time: while my subconscious is still racing at top speed. And my consciousness is still only a “spectator”.

  2. Interesting topic. It’s been a while since I’ve written down a dream in my Dream Journal. I keep a notepad and pen on my bedside table specifically for that purpose. As you say, it’s so easy to forget them on awakening.

    • theburningheart says:

      Keeping a Journal, of any kind requires effort and commitment, sort like writing a blog, writing our dreams its even more difficult, you got to keep it by your bedside, and as soon as you wake up to write down your dream, meanwhile its fresh, when you are still half sleep, unless the dream was so powerful it got you fully awake, and the reason why dreams that are important require to be impressive, otherwise who cares to go through that effort?😉

  3. Hi. Maybe I’ll give this a try. Have you had good success in learning about yourself from your dreams?

    • theburningheart says:

      You bet!
      Everything you may need to know its within ourselves, and through dreams, we can come to lifechanging revelations, finding who really we are, and to apply ourselves to do whatever we may individually do, in order to achieve, what’s needed from us, and this nothing new, ancient cultures knew about it, as the ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Chaldeans, and every other Culture did, even those we judge as “primitive” in fact more aware of the importance of dreams, and the art of interpret dreams.

      Sure write your dreams down if you care, but to interpret them, like anything else, you may seek, requires study, application, and sort of a gift for it. In other words you have to posses an interest, and dedication for it, as for example becoming good on your own field of expertise, no different.

    Glad you have finally finished the moving, even as the unpacking continues. Great advice on how to participate more fully in the dream world. I record whatever dreams or dream snippets in a daily journal that I’ve been keeping for a number of years now. I don’t always recall dreams in the same way I did a few years ago, but it does seem that when something is stirring up the emotions, the dreams become more apparent and even demanding.

    I would add too that the demarcation between the day world and dream world seems a bit fuzzier than it used to be. Perhaps life has become overall more blended into poetic states where the images shift more easily into metaphorical understanding than the more dry, literal sense I once had.
    Always good to read your take on things, dear Brigido.
    Debra

    • theburningheart says:

      “With age comes wisdom.”
      At least that’s how the saying goes. I figure as adults coming to terms by now being entitled to be call seniors our life lacks surprises, and unexpected turns, of a youthful spring of water, that jumps, twist, and fall through the the rugged landscape of a mountain, and it resemble more the quiet, serene, even shores of a wide river, that comes to meet the sea. So our dreams.
      My most demanding task was moving, it was an ordeal, now over, I am not sure but this was my 34Th house moving time, and it was exhausting, worse than a nightmare, at least when you wake up its over!
      As for unpacking, I just fetch whatever I need at the moment from boxes that I piled up in a bedroom, with some sort of order.
      In fact my son its gone be early today here, he needs to help me look for a document that we need for some official business.
      Will see how it goes?

      Take care Debra, always a pleasure. 

  5. newwhitebear says:

    Yes! The first problem is to remember the dream. I don’t remember ever.

    • theburningheart says:

      A common problem, to solve it you need a will, in other words be methodical, get a pen and a journal by your bedside, and first thing on the morning, and I mean when you are sort of half sleep yet, grab the pen and the journal and start writing whatever you remember of your last dream.

      As simple as that, take care and good luck, interpreting them that’s a whole different business, but if you are interested you can study dream interpretation, as well.

  6. kethuprofumo says:

    👍👍👍 Wonderful post, dear Mr. Brigido! Might your new house be comfortable & perfect for you!

    • theburningheart says:

      Thank you dear, for your wishes, in fact the house it’s quite large compared with the one I moved out, therefore it feels great to have all that space, that was lacking in the former, its somewhat far away compared to the other one, but I think of my daily commuting in my 32 years in Los Angeles, and it will be nothing compared to it!

      Thank you Maria.

  7. I kept my journal next the bed for several years, and wrote all my dreams that I could recall every morning. I noticed that it became easier as a routine over time. But eventually I stopped, as I realized that many dreams were either playing through front-loaded daytime concerns (work tasks, stresses, concerns…), or else they were merely recreational. Important dreams tended to stand out, and those are the ones I’ll write down nowadays, and with more detail. And yes, they also tend either to wake me, or to cause me to dream that I’ve awakened and am recalling the dream. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but practicing this has also resulted in being able to recollect events from twilight anesthesia (in one case, I apologized to a dental assistant). I think it’s just the act of consciously taking short-term memories and moving them into long term memory before they disappear. I have some thoughts about the role of serotonin as well, but that might be reaching into another area altogether.

    • theburningheart says:

      I do have a dream journal as well, not used as often as I should, reading inconsequential dreams after, can bring light on to unsuspected things, but as we know important dreams you do not even need to write them you will remember, but its better to write to the upmost detail, in case something may be later forgotten, or no evident.
      And yes the journal, it help us to move them into long time memory.
      Talking about dreams could be a long conversation, since we pass a third of our life sleep.
      Not to talk about our subconscious who its a veritable big archive, like the so called Akashic records.
      Thank you for your comment, take care.

  8. selizabryangmailcom says:

    Yeah, lately all I’m dreaming about is work. I’m reviewing a show, trying to fix it over and over, and I’ll half wake up and know it’s a dream and say, “Think about something else,” so I can get out of it, but I slip right back in and keep trying to fix the same problem that’s unfixable in the dream.
    Like the person above, I want to remember the “important” dream! But I never do. I’ve tried the journal thing, too, but not successfully.
    I hope your new place is nice and you get to remain there for a long time.:)

    • theburningheart says:

      Well, the nature of dreams it’s elusive, mostly quick images who seem disconnected or weird, the reason is that dreams are a message through symbols, rarely logical, and even words spoken, are not clear, and may not make any sense, until decodified, its an art to decipher dreams, some people have a gift to do so, or an acquired interest to apply yourself to figure what they mean, like in my case, also you need to prove with questions to the people who had the dream, then you will gather more information, and connect the dots, and figure up what the dreams wanted to tell you.
      Keeping a dairy is just the first thing to do, so you can remember them, otherwise dreams vanish from your memory pretty easy, a minute after you wake up is enough!
      Yes the place is nicer, and have more space, unfortunately farther to reach than my last one, it takes me longer to go to the places I care to, such is life.

  9. ptero9 says:

    Glad that the worst is over! Having moved four times in the last two years, I’m very sympathetic.
    Yeah, finding stuff still in boxes seems an ongoing adventure for me.

    Aging is a most bittersweet blessing. Time to slow the pace, ponder, reflect and enjoy the ripening fruit before it…well, you know the rest.
    Yes, always a pleasure to engage in conversation with you.

    • theburningheart says:

      Four times in two years? You surely beat my last record of three moves on five years!
      I just cannot imagine what a nightmare that was to you!

      As a young man I moved a lot, but my possessions fitted on a big suitcase, wisely, or unwisely as it turned out to be, left my books with my parents, a brother of mine got a good collection, and he doesn’t even read! But I believe his ex wife got the whole book collection, with the nice bookshelves he order to build with very precious wood. I don’t believe she is a reader either, maybe one of his children may be, who knows!

      Myself cannot afford expensive bookshelf’s, so they remain in boxes, that I got to dig in, when I am looking for a specific book!
      About enjoying the rest of our lives, you are right, however brief that may be, God only knows!
      Yes Debra, I also enjoy to engage in conversation with you.
      Take care dear.

  10. I sometimes really despair Brogido, because I can’t remember things I have read 5 minutes ago!!!
    The same happens, of course, with my dreams. I shall try again to write them down, as you say, so that I am later able to read my immediate memories of them again!
    I very much hope that with time you will manage to unpack your things and find all the important documents, and please remember, that “today well lived makes yesterday a dream of happiness”.
    I hope very much that with time you will feel “cozy” in your new house:)
    Thank you very much for the precious time you have given us and all the very best.

    • theburningheart says:

      If there’s any consolation, we all are getting old, and with that our short memory, it’s almost nonexistent, why worry about it, if nothing at the moment you need it’s not lost?
      I piled in one room of the house all my boxes, mostly books, and I had bought in the past, twice a book I wanted to reread, just not to go to the trouble of searching on each box!
      I figure the money it’s well spent for saving me the time, effort, and frustration of looking at each box, I know I should have a list of books on every box, but I am afraid making a list every time I move, it’s not worth the effort, since this is my 34th move, if my memory does not fail me!
      What about bookshelves, you may ask?
      That also can be a pain, every house is different and may not fit on the new one!
      And since my record of moving it’s not good, so far, four moves in the last five years, why bother?
      The house has a lot of room compared to the last one where I felt crammed, also it’s far from the area I like to frequent in town, but such is life, you cannot have all you want.
      Best wishes to you Martina!😊

      • I agree with you that time is getting more and more precious and we should try not to squander it and we can’t have everything in life! Now that you have bought Rumi’s Masnavi, you will be occupied for a while!:):)
        All the best to you too, Brogido!

  11. theburningheart says:

    Yes, time is running out, but there’s no point to get anxious about it, we cannot go back in search of lost time ala Proust, just follow ancient Sage Kalidasa’s advice:

    “Look to this day:
    For it is life, the very life of life.
    In its brief course
    Lie all the verities and realities of your existence.
    The bliss of growth,
    The glory of action,
    The splendor of achievement
    Are but experiences of time.

    For yesterday is but a dream
    And tomorrow is only a vision;
    And today well-lived, makes
    Yesterday a dream of happiness
    And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
    Look well therefore to this day;
    Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!”

    So we will take one day at a time, regardless if time it’s running out😉

    Peace, love, and serenity to you Martina. 😊

  12. For years I’ve kept a pad of paper and a pen beside the bed; it’s now a rich source of information to see what dream images have repeated themselves over the years

  13. theburningheart says:

    Yes Jadi, keeping a dream journal its very useful, and it can be very surprising as days go by, and we read some of the entries.
    Thank you for your comment, we appreciate it.

  14. macalder02 says:

    Lo normal sería que mis sueños representaran deseos y anhelos inconscientes, pero resulta que muchos de ellos no les encuentra su procedencia porque son informaciones recopiladas durante día. De allí que no les encuentro sentido por los disparatados que son.
    Bueno, ya imagino tu labor de mudanza. Un verdadero problema. Imagina que yo me he mudado de tres países diferentes en mi vida. Me da un placer volverte a saludar nuevamente y sobre todo, disfrutar de tu blog. Un gran abrazo y suerte en tu mudanza. Un gran abrazo.

    • theburningheart says:

      Los sueños, sueños son dice el dicho, pero claro eso es mas cierto de soñar despierto, que realmente no es soñar, sino desear ingenuamente algo que probablemente no es alcanzable y decimos: “No sueñes!”
      Porque equivocadamente, lo relacionamos con los verdaderos sueños al dormir, que si bien pueden se manifestaciones de lo que hizimos ese dia, o anhelos inconcientes, tambien pueden ser muchas otras cosas mas, y es por eso que se necesitan interpretar, porque su lenguaje es a travez de imagenes, simbolico, y para interpretarlos necesitamos conocer el lenguaje de los simbolos, que tambien se puede estudiar, pero para eso se requiere interes y cierto talento, como para cualquier otra ocupacion, donde se requiere conocimiento y destreza, como si fueras musico, carpintero, medico, o ahun poeta, como tu.
      Y la razon porque a la mayoria de la gente los encuentra disparatados y sin sentido, tan util como un semaforo en medio de una carretera desierta sin ningun automobil.

      Los sueños como los semaforos ,son de utilidad porque simbolizan, detente, peligro o adelante, es seguro. Ademas de muchas otras cosas, si solo fuera tan facil como soñar tres luces, rojo, naranja y verde!
      En fin la emoción y la intuición juegan gran parte en el lenguaje simbólico de los sueños, pero se necesita conocer a fondo el símbolo o la imagen de lo que soñamos, incluso las palabras que escuchamos en sueño nos pueden decir algo totalmente incomprensible, pero aquí lo dejo, de hecho te estoy adelantando el próximo blog que publicare.

      Saludos y un fuerte abrazo, como siempre!

      ENGLISH
      Dreams are dreams, the saying goes, but of course that is more true of daydreaming, which is not really dreaming, but naively wishing something, that is probably not achievable, and we say: “Wake up, you are dreaming!”
      Because mistakenly, we relate it to true dreams when sleeping, which although they may be manifestations of what we did that day, or unconscious longings, they can also be many other things, and that is why they need to be interpreted, because their language is Through images, symbolic, and to interpret them we need to know the language of symbols, which can also be studied, but for that, interest and a certain talent are required, as for any other occupation, where knowledge and skill are required, as if you were musician, carpenter, doctor, or a poet, like you.
      And the reason is because most people, find them crazy and meaningless, as useful as a traffic light in the middle of a deserted road without a car in sight.

      In short, emotion and intuition play a large part in the symbolic language of dreams, but it is necessary to know in depth the symbol or image of what we dream, even the words we hear in a dream can tell us something totally incomprehensible, but here I leave it, in fact I am anticipating the next blog that I will publish.

      Greetings and a big hug, as always!

  15. Dalo 2013 says:

    The dream journal is something very worthwhile, as you mention above “your subconscious, is telling you, its important to remember, therefore dreams can be very impressive, for you to recall them later.” The power of dreams is something else. This past week has been filled with good sleep, and great REM sleep ~ there is something about a full night of dreaming that seems to jumpstart my day. Picking out the pieces, remembering a bit more of what I dreamt, and it energizes my mind. As we get older, and memory is not quite what it use to be, this is where a journal would work wonders… I just need to be a bit more consistent with it 🙂 Awesome series on dreams, the spice of our lives. Cheers to a great weekend ahead!

    • theburningheart says:

      Well, its not only the fact that as we age, we forget easy where we put our belongings, just this morning I panicked when I realized my bank card was not in the usual place on my wallet, I had to sit and quite down, and logically retraced my steps, and sure enough I found it on the pocket of my shirt now in the laundry bag, I used it two days ago to shop online.
      But to remember dreams it’s even worst, if immediately you do not write them, unless it’s a dream you may never forget, but those are few, and far, and in between, keeping a dairy, then read them years later you will find amazing things in perspective.

      Here a post you may enjoy, as you seem interested on dreams, although I realize a difficult one for the average individual, with no knowledge about the subject:

      DREAMS, VISIONS, SYMBOLS OF THE THEOPHANYC IMAGE WITHIN

      Thank you for your answer we appreciate it.😊

  16. Arun Singha says:

    Thank you so much for sharing such an awesome and indeed very important topic. Since last few days I was thinking of knowing the science of Dreams.
    By chance, I got into your site.
    I find it very useful. There are few dreams which occurred repeatedly and always bothered me heavily. There are very few, where I saw my grandparents and my dad who expired long back.
    Also, there are some dreams on love making with known and unknown.
    I am astonished. What are these dreams and why do I see?
    Now I will make a dream journal.
    I will be happy if I can interpret.
    My best regards to you.🙏😌

    • theburningheart says:

      Well, like the Rishi Haridrumat Gautama, replied to Satyakama: “Brahman is everywhere. Brahman is everything ( Brahmaivedam Sarvam). It has no beginning and no end. ” And Brahman is realized by knowing the Self, which is our True nature. This is Supreme knowledge known as Brahma Vidya.”

      My great Teacher used to tell me: “First through life you will see his reflections everywhere, then when your time comes, you will meet Him face to face.”
      Life it’s but a dream, to realize who is the dreamer, that it’s dreaming you, regardless of what you dream, it’s to awaken to who you really are.
      Sure, dreams tell us all kinds of things, some petty, others more important, some even transcendent, but to realize who is dreaming, the primordial, and only dreamer, that’s the essential experience.
      In a way we all serve the same purpose, regardless of who we are. When we find who we are, we have arrived. Or better said, He has achieved His goal.

      Thank you! 😊 🙏💖

      • Arun Singha says:

        I am delighted to see this reply from you. Following lines, according to your great teacher is great teaching indeed.

        “First through life you will see his reflections everywhere, then when your time comes, you will meet Him face to face.”
        We must see HIS reflections everywhere, in everything, in nature, in creation, living, non living, the SUN, the Sky and beyond what we cant see.
        I am highly thankful to have such insightful comments from you. I hope I will learn a lot from you and your posts. I am very lucky.
        About dreams what you have said is very insightful. According to Advaita Vedanta, I understood, this whole World is like a Dream. However, in particular, i know that dreams are meaningful, but dont know what they say.
        You have rightly said that we all serve the same purpose regardless who we are and where we are.
        I will be very happy to be in touch with you.
        My best regards. ❤️😊🙏

  17. theburningheart says:

    It’s through living, and being here, that we serve our purpose in life’s school, my Teacher used to tell me first as novices we need to learn a lot of things, and after some time we acquire some sort of Mastery, but we are not yet there, sort like on midway’s road, and our sandals are white, but as we grow in experience, our sandals become brown, and he referred to that, as the: “The dust of the Way.” In the Path traveled.
    In regards to dreams, well if you wish you can keep a dairy, and even if you do not understand their meaning at the moment, later re-reading it you will find meaning, and understanding, it helps studying Symbolism, and sciences related to Spirit, like Astrology, and the study of Religions, in today contemporary Age, it’s useful. to know some Science as well, and be very well read.

    But regardless it’s a pure , and not a selfish attitude ,that will do wonders in whatever approach or, endeavor you may take that will work.

    Best wishes to you.😊.🙏 💖

  18. Arun Singha says:

    Yeah I am learning. As you said, as novice, learning a lot and gaining knowledge. Still it’s beginning. Sandals are white indeed. Let it be brown.
    I have started a diary. After a long time, I saw my dad who expired long ago(22/7/1992).
    I saw him sitting inside a bank as a branch manager, and I had a job inside his chember. I introduced myself with my name, while he(branch manager) was facing opposite.
    On hearing my name he turned towards me and found it was my dad with highly glowing face as if he was in his youth.
    I told him” O Dad! You have forgotten me!”
    By this time, his other staff members came inside and became busy.
    I think my job was over by that time.
    Then my dream broke.
    Overall, I was happy with the dream.
    I entered the dream in my new diary.
    Hope I will learn more about the dreams.
    Thank you so much.
    Best regards 🙏❤️😊

    • theburningheart says:

      I don’t know you particularly, neither the details of your life, dreams are difficult to interpret even by the person who has them, but at least they may be aware of the connection to some of the imagery, feelings, emotions, and history in the dream, and that facilitates interpretation, like what sort of relationship you had with your father, and seeing him with a glowing face as a young person, you seek some sort of recognition, and approval from him, and since the dream made you happy, its natural to think it was a good dream, and a conciliation, with him, of whatever problems you may had with him.
      As we age, we may come to the realization, that we come to resemble our parents, at least in character, and as the saying goes: ‘The apple never falls far from the tree.’

      Keeping a dream diary will help you greatly on interpreting your dreams, and soon you will see the fruits you will reap from such a practice.
      See him in a bank working there, well, the notion of money and benefits are linked, as accumulation of wealth, as to what kind of wealth that it’s, I am inclined to believe, is Spiritual wealth, since its the subject from our conversation.

      Take care Arun, and keep the good work. 😊 🙏💖

      • Arun Singha says:

        Thank you so much for the reply in detail. I express my gratitude for the detailed comments.
        Yeah, I need now spiritual wealth. I understand that dream has great meaning. I have started a diary on Dreams.
        With best regards 🙏
        Arun
