The mind subconscious may be a foreign landscape to you, but when you dream, you are frequently communing with the hidden aspects of your brain. You might have heard of mediums having dreams that turn out to be psychic visions, but this talent does not have to be exclusive to the medium population. By learning some common dream symbols, you can learn from your dreams, and potentially even develop psychic talents such as clairvoyance and precognition. Keeping a dream journal will help you remember images from dreams, as well as give you a record of how you progress in terms of psychic ability.
Many psychologists from Sigmund Freud to Carl Jung have discussed dreams and their effect on the mind subconscious in their theories, often attempting to interpret them. While dreams may be an intensely personal experience for some, it can be helpful to view your nighttime visions through the context of common symbols and their meanings as they appear in dreams. For example, an animal in a dream can symbolize a repressed desire or an animal-like instinct.
Of course, when you look into more complex dream theories, specific animals will have disparate meanings. Cats, to name an example, often symbolize aspects of your own character based upon how you view cats. To clarify, if you dislike cats and you see a cat in a dream, it might be a manifestation of a part of your personality you dislike.
Colors are important to dreams as well. While some people only dream in black and white, it is important to take note of whatever colors you experience in your dream. For example, blue is typically the color of masculinity, but it can also relate to the throat chakra. Learning about the colors that correspond to chakras might assist you in not only balancing your life, but also developing psychic powers in the mind subconscious.
As you become more familiar with dream theories, and as you work on enhancing your various psychic talents, you will likely experience a growth of dreams that come true. These could be little blips of future sight to situations you might never know about to things that will affect your life. It may be a challenge to decipher dreams from psychic visions, but referring back to your dream journal and researching the elements of your dreams can help you sort out which dreams were visions. Keep trying to sort out these visions, and use the regular dreams as a good means of communicating with your mind subconscious.
