Below is an example of a dream and its interpretation. Like any other types of skills, dream interpretation is an art in which one’s proficiency improves with experience.
Miss A was visiting a foreign country. She boarded a train that has a stop in a shopping complex that meanders through mountains and terrains. She remembered telling the train driver that she wanted to alight in the shopping center. By doing so, she can find her way home.
Instead of alighting at the intended destination, she alighted at a strange place. She had difficulty getting to her destination. She contacted her partner (boyfriend). Though they communicated through the phone, she was still stuck and lost in that unfamiliar place. By this time, she was starting to get depressed. In the moment of depression, she woke up from the dream.
Foreign country means unknown knowledge, new experience. Train means accelerated learning and understanding. Through mountains and terrains means ups and downs. Find the way home means spiritual path. Train-in-charge means guiding aspect. Her partner is male, means mental aspect. Shopping center station, means an intermediate stage that must be attained.
Miss A is currently experiencing and/or learning something that is still unknown to her. It is something that is rather difficult for her to grasp and apply. She is/will be experiencing some feelings of ups and downs. However, if understood, the newfound understanding and knowledge could significantly accelerate her self-growth and discovery. However, for the time being, it is something not within her experience yet. As symbolized by alighting at a strange place instead of the designated station. When she tried contacting her male partner (which symbolizes using her mental reasoning), she was still confused and thus became depressed.
Well, that’s all for a quick lesson in dream interpretation. I hope it is informative and beneficial.
