The dream world is full of imageries and symbols which have for long been a center of mysterious revelation. Many people use the power of Tarot cards to interpret the meaning of their dreams. Basic as it is, the Tarot reading technique can enlighten us as well as provide a possible insight into this realm of our psyche.
Dreams are in essence the foundation of our conscious minds and they depict the pre-symbolic and subconscious symbolic imagery which defines us as human beings. The subconscious defines our personalities in the same manner a peach is defined by its silhouette.
Keeping a Dream Journal
This is an invaluable step if you are to understand your dreams. Inasmuch as we may dream oftentimes, what we dream of tends to be washed away by the events of the day. This is why it is important to write your dreams down before they become forgotten cases. This helps keep the imagery from sliding back into your subconscious mind and helps in the conversion of your dream images into Tarot images.
You can use either a journal or a hardbound notebook to store your dreams. Some have even gone ahead to record their dreams using personal digital tape recorders. Whichever method you settle on, it is wholly up to you.
Breaking Down Your Dreams into Sections
As you journalize your dreams, it is important you separate them into sections or parts. These sections should detail the imagery that you found in your dreams. Be keen to note any unusual environmental factors because these may provide clues to the meaning of your dream.
Separating your dream into sections gives you the opportunity to pick up the dream imagery in each of these parts which is then transposed into Tarot imagery to enable you decipher them. Because Tarot cards come with a predefined corollary, deciphering encrypted meanings becomes much easier.
Correlating Dream Imagery to Tarot Cards
This is the final stage in interpreting your dreams. After you have identified the dream imagery and isolated them into parts, you should now select the corresponding Tarot cards which collate with the imagery. At this point, you can comfortably form an interpretation of what your dream means to you.
Dreams have a huge untapped potential of things that are going on in the subconscious mind. Using divinatory aids, you can uncover the true meaning of these dreams, trigger memories and possibly decipher the imagery stored when our minds are in a sleeping state. Getting access to the realm of subconscious thoughts can give you insights into things you are not privy to while awake.
By harnessing the power of dreams, your life can be a rewarding experience. Fortunately, Tarot cards give you that much needed access key to open up the storehouse that keeps the deepest of your inner thoughts. This can even give answers to some of your deepest questions.
