You have taken the first step by arming yourself with a good dream interpretation book and now need a dream journal to record your dreams. When you awaken remain perfectly still and recall as much as you can, then organize the images in your mind from beginning to end. The more you practice, the better you will be at retaining and retrieving information.
While you are trying to retrieve as much information as you can, the dream will move very slowly and starts to disappear but should linger long enough in the memory for you to jot it down. After you have recalled your dream, you must organize it so that you can record and analyze it in its entirety.
It is important that when you are in the process of reviewing your dreams, you take care not to underestimate the definition or to limit the possibilities of translation. Always look at a grander and broader view than the translation reads and different ways to apply the definitions from different perspectives. Do not automatically assume that a suggested urge be adhered to. It is important that you assess to ensure that you want to express this experience during this time in your life, especially with dream fantasies that involve romance. It is also important that everyone, male or female, who is going through the change of life immediately write down each dream upon awakening. This is particularly important if you are suffering from hot flashes because you will retain an acute memory of the dream during the flash but it will disappear in its entirety once it has passed.
You may also find that on occasion, two words that seem to be the same or are the same but spelled differently will have different definitions. One example of taking a broad view is the interpretation which reads that a con-artist, devious person, a conspiracy etc., will soon enter your life. Do not limit the possibility of who this person is. It may be someone new who will enter your life or could be someone you are familiar with who will take on these characteristics. The person involved may not know that this is where they are headed or that they will implicate you in a conspiracy. Your spirit is alerting you that a scheme will take place and that this person is, or at this time may not be aware of it. Even if they are, do not expect that they will hint at a conspiracy. You may not be directly harmed by this individual but by those who are involved with them or are involved with situations that they are involved in.
Our spirit will introduce a word to us through a visual object or name (i.e., banana, witch, Frank Sinatra, etc.) that serves to attract our attention. The definition given to the word in no way implies that that object is negative or positive in reality, but is merely leading us to a message our spirit wants us to attend to. Consider also that when a suggested product or procedure is viewed in a dream process and is introduced to you as a choice to consider in reality, you must always seek a second opinion and/or review your options to ensure whether or not you feel these are the best choices for you. Sometimes a message will seem too far fetched to be realistic. It will seem this way because you have yet to experience it and cannot conceive of its actuality.
