Dream interpretation is both intuitive and intellectual, and as such, it can be part of a rich process of personal development.
Unlike the predictions found in horoscopes or psychic readings, dream interpretation relies on your active participation. When you interpret your dreams, put yourself in the shoes of the dream interpreter who understands the symbols and meanings of your dreams the best.
