The philosophy that dreams are trying to reveal important messages is not a new school of thought. It’s been around for ages – and in many cultures. Sigmund Freud, for instance, was convinced that dreams have meaning. Native American tribes, such as the Iroquois, considered dreams to be sacred, and treated the interpretations of their dreams as law in matters such as marriage and even war.
Recurring dreams can be as frightening as a night terror when you don’t understand what they mean. It might even feel like you’re the only person who experiences them, whether they are dreams that feel real (lucid dreams) or premonition dreams. That really isn’t the case though. Most people will experience them at various stages of life. The key is to discover what your recurring dream might be trying to tell you.
Once upon a time, great significance was placed on symbols within dreams. Wars were fought based on nothing more than symbols discovered in dreams. Today, people focus far less on dreams and even dismiss important clues our dreams are providing us with in the form of symbols. However, if you’re having dreams, particularly recurring dreams, some believe there could be a message within the dream that you’re simply not receiving.
