These days it is not unusual for me to dream about blogging since it is activity that takes up a good bit of my time and something that I frequently think about. I typically dream about activities that are part of my normal life although the imagery might be quite abnormal and confusing.
In this dream about the computer language code, I was apparently having some difficulty in getting the code pasted onto the page I was working with. Studying the code it appeared to me that it was different than when I had first seen it. In a state of perplexity, I saw the code differently each time I looked at it until I eventually realized that this code was no longer usable.
Dream imagery is like a code that needs to be translated before it can be clearly understood. An image from one dream may mean something entirely different in another dream. It is usually necessary to look at the entire context of a dream to better understand what a thing symbolizes.
If you dream of a snake for example, the snake may represent uncertain fears, an impending trip, or just a snake. Think about the image in context of things you have seen or thought about recently. Then also consider how that particular image fit into what happened in the dream and how you reacted to the dream image.
In my opinion, dream dictionaries are sometimes fun diversions and interesting contemplatives, but they are not all-encompassingly accurate. A thing symbolized to me may mean something entirely different to you.
When you are trying to interpret or understand your dreams you must decipher the code. Every detail should be considered and each thing must be taken in proper context. Especially for those who say they don't remember their dreams, think back and try to remember a detail and then try to relate that detail to another and another until you begin to see the entire picture more clearly.
Think of a dream as a page of computer language code or text written in a completely foreign language. At first what you see may seem a garbled mess, confusing and nonsensical. But as you study more and learn the code you begin to see the patterns and understanding becomes clearer.
Do you have recurring images in your dreams? What in your dreams tends to make you afraid? What dream imagery makes you feel a sense of peace or happiness?
