What Does My Dream Mean?
Sylvia Browne Interprets Your Dreams

by Sylvia Browne


A popular question I always hear is, “Sylvia, what do my dreams mean?” People want to know how to understand dreams and dream symbols. Dream symbols can have many interpretations, not just a single one-line interpretation like a newspaper horoscope. Your dreams are interpreted by your very best dream dictionary: you! Your conscious and subconscious minds and wonderful body of experience are where dream symbols originate. Once you learn how to interpret dream symbols, you will be the one to define your dreams.


That being said, it is true that often some generalities about the meaning of dreams can be made. Some imagery and dream symbols can be very common and popular. No oneand I mean no onedreams just the way you do. When you look at a dream symbol, always look first to how that symbol could apply to your current life circumstances. There is no “right” or “wrong” when it comes to interpretationall that matters is that the answer resonates with you as the true and correct dream symbol interpretation.


To define dream symbols, begin by first understanding what type of dream you have had. Was it a wish dream, release dream, astral travel, lucid dream or a prophetic dream?


Some people don’t understand or believe that their dreams have symbols. Everyone’s dreams have symbols. Let’s do an exercise in personal symbols so that you understand them better. Even though you’re seeing these symbols while you are awake, this exercise will give you an idea of what symbols can mean to you. Get a piece of paper and a pen.


Now you will draw five objects: a house, the sun, water, a tree and a snake. Don’t worry about being a Picasso or the next Rembrandt. Just draw what you feel is right. Come back when you’ve finished your drawing. We’ll wait!


Did you finish your drawing? Okay, let’s interpret the symbols. You will see just how personal these symbols can be. Notice your impressions about each symbol before looking at the definitions.


The house. What are your first impressions about the house? The house is the symbol for you. Does your house have a door to invite people in? Is there a path to lead people into the house? Does the house have windows, to let people see in to you and you in to them? Is there a chimney for warmth? Does the house look good or like it needs extra care?


The sun. This is your father. How close is the sun to the house? Is the sun prominent in the sky? Does the sun give off warm rays?


The water. This is your mother. Is the water close to the house? What type of water did you draw? Is it a river or a pond?


The tree. This is your intellect. How large is the tree? Is it near the house? Is the tree strong and healthy?


The snake. This is your sexuality. How important is the snake in the drawing? How close is the snake to the house?


You can see now that everyone has conscious and subconscious reactions to symbols. So your dreams are full of symbols. Look for symbols in your dreamsas they are full of valuable meanings for you.


Love always,


Sylvia Browne

Hi Sylvia. I always dream about my dad. Sometimes he walks in to my dreams and he is saying a lot of things which i can't understand. There are also times when i my dad hugs me in my dream. i just don't know what this means.

Sylvia, My friend Pat died about 5 years ago. I knew him since I was 22 years old and worked with him. We moved about over the years, but I kept in touch with him by phone, then Christmas cards and finally email. Pat died of cancer. I didn't have the opportunity to go to his funeral as he was down south and we were up north. Just the other week I dreamed him and I were in a bar, dancing, laughing and joking. I told Pat that I really missed him. His reply was that he knew it. In my dream all along, I knew he was dead, and I knew I was dreaming. When we said bye to one another, he handed me a long stemmed white rose, and hugged. When I woke I told my husband about the dream. Then I emailed Pat's partner and told him of the dream. He wrote back and said he believes sometimes we do connect with a person that has passed in dreams. Also that Pat's favorite flower were white roses. That beside his urn at his viewing/service he put white roses in vases on either side. It gave me a sense of peace knowing this and since he died I would think about him, and wish I had taken time to see him or visit or even go to the funeral. Now I just feel good knowing that I did get to see him again and tell him how much I cared. Love, Helen

Dear Patricia, my name is judy, i live in omaha,ne. i was captivated by your dream and felt the need to write to you. this dream was a visit from your mom who passed away some years ago, the building being green is a symbol of healing, meaning your mom is healed being on the other side, how wonderful you see her, next time you dream of her walk over to her and sit beside her and ask questions from her, you will be pleasantly surprised of her answers. when my mom died i had 2 very vivid dreams, i wrote them down. went to my library and sought help from books on dreams, this was my start on my spiritual journey for answers, and sylvias books helped me emmensely. i thank god i found some of my answers from her books now i get so excited when she writes more books to help us find the answers that we know in our hearts that she speaks the truth. i take pride that when i dream of my mom, that she is always with me and she comes to check on me from time to time, she lets me know she loves me, and in case your wondering she passed oct. 31st, 1992 of ovarian cancer. my first dream, that lead to my spritual journey to seek answers is this.... my mom and i were in downtown omaha at a local convention center, across the street from that is a catholic church(and for real that church was there), i needed to get across the street to this church and find a restroom but traffic was extremely heavy, cars wouldn't stop to allow me to help her find the restroom, just then a ford pick up truck(very old) was coming down the street as i was getting her acroos, it stopped which halted traffic, we crossed, i looked at the man, and thanked him, he nodded his head in gesture, I KNEW he was a great powerful man but didn't know why. we got to the church, my mothers face looked gaunt, she lost alot of weight, i begged her to hang on that i would help her. she could't walk the stairs to the rest room, so i carried her up the stairs, crying to her to hang on, but i knew she was dyeing. just then the man appeared that was in the orange ford pickup truck but this time he was in the most amazing white native american outfit, he wore the most beautiful head dress with feathers that almost went to the floor, I KNEW he was a shamon. i begged him to heal her but he said he could not, i cried so hard and pleaded for him to take me instead, he said she would be healed, but that i could not go with them. the moment i woke from that dream i wrote it down. That day i went to work, i worked with a woman who was part sioux indian, when i told her the dream she just sobbed. she told me that that was a very special dream, to treasure it, she said i had a visit from a shamon that could heal my mom. and thus began my fascination about dreams and spirituality. if you want me to tell you my other one just let me know. peace be with you patricia, and just know we are all in this together. Judy C. Omaha,Ne

I'm 48 years old. In the past 8 years I've had 3 dreams that were crystal clear, with vivid colors and clairity. One dream; I was at a resort-like place near the ocean. There was a swimming pool whith a few people relaxing in lounge chairs enjoying the sun. Over to the left I saw my mother standing near the doorway of an apartment-like building that was green in color. She was looking at me but did not speak. I looked down into the pool and then I stepped into the water. Then the dream was over and I awoke. This all happened in a matter of 2 seconds. My mother past away 15 years ago. I believe I got a glimpse of the otherside.

Lor C in Loma CO, I have been reading your article and you know, I have had dreams ALL my life about loved ones dying and how they'll die and sometimes I even knew the exact day! I don't know howcome and why, but I wondered that about Sylvia too her saying: any type of Pychic ability won't see if a loved one is going to pass away, or if something bad will happen to a loved one... I have since the time I was about 3 year's old! Sincerely, P Bow

I can always tell when I am having a dream of visiting someone from the other side as opposed to a regular mind release dream. When someone visits me I can remember every little detail down to the blemishes on their skin. Everything is in full color and is crystal clear. The other kind are always hazy, and I end up forgetting half of what I dreamed about the next day.
