Part 3 describes how I track and decode my dreams. I’ve included my notes from the Expansions Dream Webinar in 2012, their other webinars, and week-long intensives. As mentioned, I’ve been tracking my dreams for many-many years. I have also been studying how to track and decode them the same amount of time.
I always prepare my Self to dream and/or ask a question before falling asleep. Not only do I the preliminaries and keep Self in Ultimate Protection, but I also have easy access to my dream journal. Do your best to be in a good space mentally and emotional before sleeping. Keep away from any drugs, be mindful of alcohol, and give your Self a break from any electronics.
As you wake up stay still. Mentally note how you feel, then use your focus to recall any dreams. No matter what you experienced even if it is only a word, symbol, or color. Get to your dream journal and write down what you remembered. Go with your first thoughts before logic kicks in and doubt surfaces. Capture all details. Symbols, words, colors, change of scenes, etc. If you asked a specific question, note that in your journal. Title and date the dream. You might find that throughout the day you might remember more details. Always add those as well.
Dreams are a status report of your mind, they tell you about your life. Many solutions come in dreams. I’ve experienced that, many times. Dreams are also a way of releasing stress. Remember, anything can happen in a dream because you are outside of time and space. You could have five to seven dreams a night. That may sound like a lot, but any change in a scene is considered a new dream.
After I have written my dreams down, I let the information settle. Later that day I will go back and read what I have written. Depending upon the number of details in the dream I’ll decide how I will go about decoding it.
If this is a BIG dream; lots of details, many symbols, many interactions with people I know and don’t know. Then, I’ll plan a time when I can spend more time laying it out in a document before decoding. If it is a small dream, which does not mean it is not significant. Then, I will research each symbol and look for the message. I have built a dream dictionary over the years and use this and my intuition to decode my dreams.
The people in your dreams are different aspects of you. Oversoul dreams contain natural settings. They include people, animals, and outdoor settings. Programming dreams contain technology. They include mechanical devices, radios, movie stars, big stories, and buildings. Radios could be a download; books could contain a download or your past.
Nightmares, are fears you are not confronting. Recurring dreams tell you; you have not dealt with something. Lucid dreams are ones where we become aware, we are in a dream, or that we are dreaming. Keep in mind that ELF waves are broadcast from 2-5 a.m. These waves affect our physical body and mind.
Amending dreams, the way Expansions’ tells you, was new information to me back in 2012 and 2013. I had never heard of brown X, or flush with violet then merge, put at your pineal, and/or change the story-line.
Depending upon your dream, you can always go back in and brown X technology, buildings, or other symbols. You can merge people. Place specific symbols at your pineal for more information. And, change your dreams in the waking state. These are very powerful visualizations, which are available to you.

Now that I have shared a few of my dreams, how I decode and amend them. I’ll close with some final thoughts. My dreams continue to show me aspects of my Self. Recently I had a dream. In the dream I was in the produce section of a grocery store peeling red bell peppers with my new boyfriend. That dream told me; I’m peeling away at my anger. That anger is what I saw in the fireplace embers, in the 2012 dream I wrote about in Part 1.
Dream tracking and decoding are like working out. You have to practice your workout routine or you will not get any positive results. It’s also a lifetime practice. I have dreams I have yet to decode. Many of those dreams are part of a series of dreams I had many years ago.
There is no shortage of dream interpretation resources. I recently searched online for ‘dream interpretation resources’ and came up with a million links. For me, Expansions offers the most effective and empowering tools you could learn and use.
Sweet and life-enhancing dreams to you!
