If we can connect what happens in the dream with the context in our waking life, we can learn things. It's all in interpreting the symbolism, since
dreams are almost never literal. You've just got to pay close attention to what happens.
Many years back I had a disaster/end of world dream where a lady friend of mine was "left behind", and I spent most of the dream in a fruitless
quest to find/rescue her. This was a girl I'd been after for some time but never had it in my head to give up. Then I have this dream with symbols
such as "tickets" and "train stations", and came to realize that it was a way of my subconscious mind telling me, "Don't be an idiot - it's
over. I know it sucks, but you've gotta move on with your life and stop worrying."
It's really easy to miss the "message" of our dreams, not only because we barely remember them, but because what we do recall is often brushed
aside as garbled nonsense. But if it has some emotional significance to events in our waking life, it's time to listen up.
