This worksheet is intended to be a step-by-step process to better facilitate the interpretation of dreams. You have
permission to photocopy these worksheets for your personal use.

Step One:
Write out your dream.
It is important to write it as it came. Do not analyze nor try to figure it out. Just enjoy reliving the dream as you write.

Step Two:
Context
Describe what is going on in your life at the time of the dream. It should be within a few days of having received the dream.
Record it factually, then record the emotions involved.

Step Three:
Fill in the Chart
Again, do not analyze the symbols just yet. Pick each symbol (person, place or thing) from the dream, then beside that
symbol write any associated action and emotion. Then ask yourself what the symbol means or represents to you. For
example your boss in a dream may represent authority, leadership, dictatorship, oppression, or any number of other things
and the meaning is governed by how he relates to you in real life and by the actions and emotions of the dream. The
meaning of an animal in your dream may be good if you are on friendly terms with it or it may bring fear if you are not. Each
animal also has characteristics unique to its species and to your experiences with it. Running to or from an animal changes
the meaning considerably.

Step Seven:
Thank You.
A word against frustration…it is about relationship!!! Sometimes the understanding of our dreams is a process and not
instinctive as our world likes us to believe. Be persistent. Come back to these sheets on occasion to see what other truths He
may want to reveal to you. Our God is a mighty and creative God. He seeks to be in relationship with his children. When you
have gone as far as you can on these sheets express a heart-felt Thank You to the Giver of the dream for who He is, what he
has revealed so far, and for the ways He is active in your life through dreams. Write out a prayer of thanks.
