Dream interpretation is almost entirely subjective. If two people both dreamed about being in a jungle, it would in no way mean the same thing. It is relative the the individuals experiences in life and their thoughts and beliefs.

Generally speaking when people ask the question; ‘what does my dream mean?’ it’s mainly down to them to try and work it out. It’s not something other people can easily tell them. there are dream dictionaries around because certain things in our culture and society have a shared meaning, what we mean by this is that there are generalisations which can be made about certain things.

The idea is that by certain combinations of elements in a dream we can learn things about the individuals mind and the way they think deep down; therefore the meaning of the dream. Here are the most common dream symbols, and their meanings!
