Perna: Hi! Welcome to watchmojo.com. I am your host Perna. Today I sit down with Dream Specialist Monica Abdulahad who is going to tell us about some dreams that everyone tends to have, and what's its universal meanings are.
Do we dream of any typical things or for any specific reason?
Monica Abdulahad: Well, sometimes we dream about things that we are trying to oppress or avoid when we are awake, so that when we are sleeping sort of our defenses are low, so they just pop out inside. Sometimes we dream about things that we wish for.
If you are feeling shameful things in your daily life they will not come out in your dream as you being naked in front of people you don't like. Another common dream is losing your teeth. If you are noticing that you are starting to change your perspective on things in life. Sometimes that's connected to a dream of losing your teeth.
Perna: Can you tell me a little about influences on the dreamer and the dream state that that person is having?
Monica Abdulahad: Things that you are thinking about, for example, who is near to you before bed it can affect what you dream. Also things would affect your senses when you are sleeping like your sense of touch, smell, hearing, a poke might turn to a shove, but you do feel it.
Also if you are anxious about something, for example, if you have an exam the next day. You might dream about missing it or coming late, something like this. So anxiety related things also affect.
Perna: And Monica can you tell me a little about the two basic techniques for interpreting dreams that we can use?
Monica Abdulahad: For the first one which is Symbolic Dream Interpretation, you take one symbol out of all the different events that may occur. But in the second one that's called Decoding Dream Interpretation. So now you are analyzing every bit and then after try to connect it altogether. So colors, events would happen, you notice them separately.
