What Do Dreams Have to Do with “Real” Life? Part I by Jean Raffa

Today and tomorrow I would like to share with you a wonderful example of dream work undertaken from a Jungian/symbolic perspective.  If you have trawled through my posts on the symbols that appear in dreams, but still feel unable to string them together to form a meaningful story, I hope the process outlined by Jean below and tomorrow will be of some help.

There is no one definitive way to interpret dreams, but starting with a breakdown of the key symbols, reflection on what those symbols may mean personally to you, and then a deep consideration of how these symbols may be relevant to your current life circumstances is a great place to start. If you still feel at a loss, you can begin to research broader meanings to the symbols in your dreams. It may be that if you are undergoing a significant life change, that universal symbols are resonating with you as they have with countless humans through-out history.

I hope you enjoy the posts from Jean as much as I did!  Jean has also kindly offered to answer any questions you may have after reading this.
