Dreams make associations. Think of anything that comes to mind when you read through the list of word associations above. Dreams will especially link to recent thoughts and moods. If you can think of a way in which you might use one of these words then the dream may just capture that exact thought.
For instance, a "mistake" dream could link to the words "aware of faults" and the dream capture a thought like "I am aware of my faults. I am realistic - unlike some I know".
EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : a dream where the dreamer admits that she made a mistake about an angry woman linked to the dreamer meeting the day before with her sister. They constantly clashed and meeting inevitably ended up tense. The mistake symbolised the dreamers acknowledgement that they clashed but she also wanted to understand and make allowances for her sister. She was thinking about the situation rationally rather than emotionally. Recognising this mistake was symbolic of the dreamer trying to explain this tension and understand her sisters point of view.
Example dream : A dream where a train driver says that the dreamer has bought a ticket by mistake was linked to her diet. She had just employed a dietician to keep her on tracks with her diet because she knew she wouldn't stay on tracks by herself.
Example dream : A dream where the dreamer introduces a band at a gig in front of a huge crowd was linked to the dreamer waking up in an unusually outgoing mood. Normally he was very phobic and would never have got up in front of an audience. He was not bothered even when he made a mistake. This reflected the dreamers thoughts about his shyness and phobias. The mistake he made reflects how he needed to deal with his phobia. It played out the feeling "what is the worst that can happen. Even if I mess it up no one will worry". So the dreams meaning was linked to him thinking about his own attidude to making mistakes. He was currently more daring and did not care if he made mistakes.
Example dream : A dream where the dreamer wakes up and thinks that her previous employer has realised their mistake simply linked to the dreamers wish to turn back time - the dreamer had lost their job and longed to go back. Sometimes our dreams just remind us of these bad emotions.
Example dream : A dream where the dreamer realises that he has made a mistake organising a last boxing match, He knew that this was too much. This was all a metaphor for the dreamers declining health - and wish to continue his work and his realisation that this was simply not possible and would be a real mistake.
Example dream : In one dream the dreamer is being reminded of all the mistakes he has made and how he keeps messing up. In real life he had been ill for what seemed like forever. His mood was very negative. The dream seems to capture this feeling "I cannot seem to escape this illness. All I can think of is negativity. All this is making me feel depressed about myself and low in confidence."
