During this age hundreds of different types of counseling, treatments, other methods and treatments to treat all sorts of psychological ailments are very easy to overlook the very simple and sometimes important help, your dreams. Dreams have been used to gain a better understanding of our feelings and thoughts for a very long time.
Dream treatment was popular by Dr. Sigmund Freud, but the exercise goes a lot more than that. While dream treatment is by no means a way to diagnose or treat mental illness, it can help you think and subconsciously, help you solve problems in your life and discover root issues in your life.
Before we can really discuss dream treatment, we need to understand that this is a very personal effort and does not have to imply that others can interpret your dreams for you. This is a very simple method of analyzing your own dreams and discovering the meaning of the individual circumstances. To start all you need is a free online dream dictionary and some free time.
While dream books provide a good resource for some common dreaming rules, it's important to remember that your dreams and their elements vary from person to person, and something in your dream can mean something that is completely different from another person. For this reason, it's important that you take time to think about the feelings and thoughts you associate with the imagery from your dream, as well as common markings.
The first step at the beginning of Dream Therapy is to remember your dreams. This may sound like a scary or even impossible task but I assure you that it is not. One good trick is to tell you a few times before you fall asleep. "I will remember my dreams." Do this every night for a week or two and you'll probably find yourself remembering even the details of your dreams.
Now that you can remember your dreams when you wake up, it's important that you somehow write your dreams for analysis when you're fully awake and have time to defend it. You can choose to do this by using a dream book or notebook, or even with a sound recording. For the exact dream magazine, this should be done immediately after your dream, even if it's 3:00. Whichever method you choose, make sure it is accessible.
The final step is to really look at your dreams and dive into them. Make sure you look at little strange information and not just the main theme of dreams. Check if you see any repeated signs, people, places, ideas or feelings related to your dreams. Open yourself and really think about how these different things made you feel. For the most part, you'll likely be able to see where it fits in some way with your life.
When you've been used to watching your dreams and dissecting them to find hidden messages in them, you can start training yourself to dream about the issues or problems in your life that you are having trouble with to solve. A very quick example of this only happened to me this week. I was having trouble reorganizing my office to flow well for me and meet the needs of my consumers. For 2 nights I went to sleep and repeated myself, "I want to dream about how to arrange my office on the best path." Yes, I did and now my office is exactly how I needed to be. This technology can work for both small, like my office and large, like deciding on a new policy in your life.
Dreaming can be a powerful tool and help you interpret a lot of knowledge you already have but can not be used efficiently. Remember, the dreams are produced by you, based on your experience, emotions, ideas, fears and wishes. Expand your mind with these methods and put this very good resource to use in your life.
