I do, and I don’t need professional help to figure out the source – usually that salami sandwich or entire cheesecake I ate right before I went to bed.
Recurring dreams, on the other hand, demand more of my attention – often because they are scary.
Events and emotions in your waking life trigger your dreams.
If you repeatedly have the same dream, your subconscious is trying to send you a message.
Fortunately, there are a lot of online resources available to help you figure out what your dreams mean, including extremely detailed dream dictionaries.
There are also online communities that allow you to share your dreams in forums for interpretation and discussion.
You can even use the discussion boards to connect with people who have similar dreams and receive free advice from various experts, ranging from professional dream analysts to psychics. According to a lot of the material out there, once you’ve received the message your dream is sending, it goes away.
