According to Jungian theory, the people, places, objects, and symbols that appear in dreams represent aspects of the self. Therefore, try to make personal associations with your dream images.
The feelings that arise while dreaming are as important as the dream symbols. During your waking state, allow your dream characters and images to speak aloud. Verbal expression will provide insight to these parts of yourself. It’s also helpful to dialogue with your dream images. Have conversations with your dream symbols. Remember, they represent parts of your unconscious thinking. If you don’t understand what it’s revealing to you, ask it questions. And don’t be surprised if it asks you a question or two!
How to Remember Your Dreams
If you have trouble recalling your dreams, ask your unconscious mind to help you remember. Right before falling asleep, state an intention that you would like to remember your dreams. Your unconscious mind knows you very well, so your intention must be sincere.
If you still can’t recall your dreams after the third or fourth evening of making genuine attempts, then ask your unconscious mind to show you why you are resisting.
Once you start to remember, write them down. It is helpful to keep a pad, pen, and nightlight by the side of your bed.
