HOW DO YOU FEEL?
One of the most important things to remember about your dream—and it’s important to do this right after waking up—is how you felt during the dream and what lingering feeling you had after waking up from the dream.
Sometimes “how you felt” about the dream can be subtle. It’s on these occasions where it’s most important to include this somewhere in your dream entry. For example (Feeling: When the dream started, I felt a little apprehensive, but as it progressed, I felt more and more comfortable).
Remembering and writing down how you felt right after having a dream is an important habit to get into. Seemingly positive events can happen in a dream, but if you wake up with an uneasy feeling, the interpretation of that dream might change—from an encouraging dream to a warning dream. Sometimes this is the subtle difference between good and God.

Comparing Intrinsic and Extrinsic Dreams
In the Understanding Dreams and Visions course you are taught the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic dreams. Identifying this characteristic, which determines if the dream is about you (intrinsic) or somebody else (extrinsic), is just one step of recording and interpreting your dreams.
A common misperception is that the dreamer has to be the main participant in the dream for it to be intrinsic. That would be an inaccurate assumption. Unless it is abundantly obvious that you’re playing no role in the dream—like you’re just a fly on the wall watching it all happen—label the dream intrinsic and move on with the process. Remember, the point of dream interpretation is not in the rigid tagging of the dream, it’s discovering the meaning and learning from the hidden wisdom.
For example, sometimes the dreamer will be participating in the dream, and then suddenly find themselves removed from the action of the dream yet still privy to what’s going on or what’s being said. That doesn’t mean the dream is now about some else. The dream is still about the dreamer. It’s just not important for the dreamer to be involved in the action of the dream to glean the important information being revealed in that scene.
Or, sometimes you just “know” things in a dream. The back story of how you found this out isn’t important to the meaning of the dream, so it’s excluded.
So for clarity, a wise practice would be to tag any dream you participate in at any time as intrinsic, and any dream you are strictly observing—the fly on the wall scenario—as extrinsic.

Context, Context, Context
In much the same way as the three most important parts of real estate are location, location and location, the three most important parts of the technical side of understanding your dreams are context, context and context.
What is context? Context is looking at the details of the dream in light of the big picture. Just as a news network can completely change what a politician means by taking one sound bite from a speech, so can you misinterpret a dream by interpreting a detail without looking at how it fits into the big picture surrounding it.
What does a cat mean in a dream? Generally, a cat would mean an independent spirit. But the context of that cat’s presence in your dream plays a huge part in how you interpret the dream. Are you inviting the cat to sit on your lap? Are you playing with the cat? Running away from the cat? Throwing the cat out of a speeding car? Sorry cat lovers…but that actually might be a good dream.

When I teach on dreams, I instruct the class to record their dreams in different ways. We talk about four methods of dream recording: the cluster method, the diagram method, the intuitive method (drawing the dream) and the spiral method (writing the dream in an ever-expanding circle on the page).
Why is it important to branch out and record your dreams in “unique” ways? It causes the right side, the creative side, of your brain to develop, and you literally come into a greater understanding of dream interpretation simply because you’re doing something new and creative.
In life, this isn’t a one-time exercise. This is something you need to practice over and over again. Some of us argue against doing things differently for no reason other than we hate change. But God loves change. He loves creativity. He loves doing the new thing (Isaiah 43:19; 2 Corinthians 5:17). Therefore, He wants to open up the mind He gave you and utilize it at a larger, deeper level. In a way, it’s like He’s using building blocks. Your mind is being built up and attuned to what the Spirit is saying, what the Spirit is doing and what the Spirit knows, and one day, these new, creative elements inside you will click into gear.
The first step is the new step—the new thing with God, the new creative outlet, music lessons with a new instrument, the class you’ve thought about taking. You just never know what you’ll discover when you try new things.
Food for Thought
This month, I want to get your creative juices flowing. I want to present the idea that perhaps, something huge is waiting on your doorstep, and all you need to do is open the door and find it. Taking a road you’ve never taken before will always bring you through new territory. That’s what new roads do. You see new things. You discover new things. You have different life experiences, and sometimes, you even uncover an ability you didn’t know you had.
My grandmother became a very good artist when she was 80 years old. She had messed around with it for years, drawing a picture a decade, but for the last seven years of her life, she drew all the time. She was a chalk artist, and she never knew she had this gift until she started doodling around, and it started growing. She discovered she had genuine talent, and after she passed away, she won awards because her children entered her work into contests.
You could have a gift.
It could be spectacular.
C.S. Lewis put it like this:
“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”
If your heart is burning as you read this article, perhaps it’s time for you to expand your horizons. Choose to be courageous and try. Do the new thing and see what God has in store for you. It might take you by surprise. You might just discover how to fly.
