Frequently Asked Questions
Are dreams always meaningful?
No, not all dreams are meaningful. But when a dream is worth memorizing, when you feel like it means something, it usually does. In daily life you also only memorize the important things. So whenever you feel like your dream is meaningful, then it is meaningful.
What subjects in dreams usually bear meaning?
Dreams about: being attacked, dying, a house, a maze, a child, an evil woman, a beautiful woman, an old man/woman, a mountain, particular animals, a circle, going down somewhere (a basement for example, or an ocean), zombies, an egg or seed etc. etc.
How did you learn to interpret dreams?
First of all, by reading Carl Jung, Marie-Louise von Franz, myths, fairy tales and more. I also learned a lot from the lectures of Jonathan Pageau. Then I started to see patterns and I started to understand the meaning of symbols and archetypes. After a while I started to have really intense archetypal dreams myself, and I was able to understand them. I also found out that I have an intuition that I can use. All these things combined make me able to make sense of people's dreams.
Will there be room for discussing more than one dream during a session?
Of course. During the dream analysis session I will be all yours. We can discuss more than one dream if you want, but we can also discuss personal matters in a more profound way. The goal is to gain understanding of your unconscious.
How can I (better) remember my dreams?
Remembering dreams is all about memory. If you have trouble to remember your dreams, then try to train your memory. Walk into a room, look around, then close your eyes and try to recall as many details as possible. Another thing you can train is being aware of waking up. As you are waking up, but not fully awake yet, try to be aware of how you feel and what is on your mind. These things can eventually help you to remember your dreams (better).
Should I write down my dreams?
Yes. Or you can record them on your phone of course. When a dream is fresh in your memory right after you woke up, it is the best moment to write it down/record it. Also, it is more useful to have a series of dreams instead of one single dream. In a series of dreams we might be able to discover certain patterns which won't stand out in a single dream. In series of dreams we are also able to see your psychological development.
