Can Dream Interpretation Be A Valid Method For Self-Growth?

Can Dream Interpretation Be A Valid Method For Self-Growth? Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing my response to a fascinating question – Can dream interpretation be a valid method for self-growth? So, I was having a conversation with a friend of mine the other day. We were debating on our dreams for the future and how we are making them come true just by focusing and remembering them. Also, how it has helped us with our personal development.

Can Dream Interpretation Be A Valid Method For Self-Growth?

My answer is Yes.

But to answer the question of how can it be so … well … to be frank, I have no straight answers.

I can say that the guiding hand of the intelligence of soul/higher self/Source works in mysterious ways. Understanding our dreams is the most direct way of tapping into this cosmic intelligence. This is one of the more straightforward methods compared to other means such as clairvoyance training and other psychic developments. The reason for this ease is that most of us dream!

Interestingly, dream interpretation can also be applied in other areas too. It can be used successfully to interpret the symbols of our clairvoyant vision while in meditation. Understanding the symbology can assist one in bridging a transition onto higher and more abstract means of knowing.

There are specific skills that I feel is important for successful dream interpretation. One of which is a developed intuition. Unfortunately, this faculty is something that no dream interpretation software or tool can have. It is something that only we can nurture.


Intuition binds and creates recognisable connections to the seemingly unrelated dream visions and symbols. This, in turn, structures the relationships into a cohesive and meaningful message.

Intuition is not mental reasoning. It is simply that inner knowing of feeling/sensing beyond logic and reason. Intuition is, in fact, an actual cognitive process. Unfortunately, our modern civilisation is heavily ‘mental-rationalisation driven’ and therefore cannot validate a higher-order process such as intuition. In other words, we have been placing too much emphasis on logic, proving and reasoning.

Intuition, sometimes it doesn’t tell you the outcomes of events. In my case, it is simply an inner knowing that explains and provides answers.

If superior thoughts are smacked with elitism and pride, then one better takes a closer assessment before getting too carried away. These thoughts might not be intuitions. If they imply things like “You will be rich and famous if you do this’ or ‘she must be wrong as I am smarter’, do double-check. That thought may be coming from the part of the ego/personality associated with body-mind survival.

I hope you enjoyed that.

Talk soon.

    Dreaming is definitely an expression of intuition as a cognitive process. I think what trips so many people up is that our intuition isn’t very good at using actual language because it’s such an ancient mechanism. Instead, it uses narrative, feeling and symbolism, which is what leads to the need for interpretation in the first place.

    It’s a nice article, I never thought about dream interpretation. Although, I believe in the power of intuition which I feel like it’s our inner energy guiding us.

    Real life and dreams are pretty connected for me; except for the times, when my dreams can be fascinating sci-fi or fantasy stories (but then again, those might be because my goal of wanting to write stories somehow comes to the forefront when I am dreaming those times!!)..

    I do think that real life issues can manifest themselves in dreams. I have had dreams when I’m trying to shout for help and nothing comes out, and I think it reflects those times I think I am not being heard.

    For sure it can!! I love doing deep dives into my dreams and what caused them, what they mean about my subconscious, anxieties, etc. They can simply be a reflexion of something you saw or did the previous day or days. But they often can also be a clue about something bothering you that you may not even realize!

    This is fascinating! I am really into dreams and what they mean and how they can help your intuition. My mom is really into this too. When I was a teenager I remember my mom had a dream journal. You have to write in it the moment you wake up when it’s fresh in your mind because you forget your dreams so quickly. She wrote in her dream journal every morning, and the stories and symbols were amazing. It was easier for her to remember her dreams every day and she used them to help her and to follow her intuition. I never had a dream journal, but maybe I should!

    Over the last few years I have learned to trust my intuition and it has never fail me. Trusting my intution and allowing that to guide me has not fail.

    Now, every once in a while my ego does kick in but thanks to personal growth I can quickly recognise them and push them away.
