This is going to be a short and sweet article for you, and will give you the power to trust your intuition.
When you think about the dream you had last night, often something about a certain something or someone can spring to mind. If so, it means it’s probably your strongest association to that key element, and therefore what it symbolises.
Think about those movies where you see the trusted shrink calling out seemingly innocent words, and the patient has to say what first comes to mind; simple word association. This is because your mind can have very unique attachments to words, ideas and people. Your conditioning, your life, is what determines the effect a person of object can have on you.
So if you see a dog in your dream and you immediately feel it’s dangerous – you’re right. If you see a dog in your dream and you see it as your pillar of support – you’re right. Or like in this cartoon here; depending on you association or perspective, the same thing could mean two different things depending on how you feel about it!
You may not have an obvious association for every object, place or person in you dreams, standing naked probably so! But know that if you have a ‘gut feeling’ or ‘intuitive spark’ about it – trust it.
The more you allow yourself to trust your instincts on these types of associations, the stronger your intuition gets!
