If you believe that this is a dream that indeed should be looked into further for an in depth interpretation, follow these steps:
How to get your Dreams Interpreted:
Write your dream down:
As soon as you awaken write down any and all events, feelings, situations and symbols that occurred in your dream. Do this before getting out of bed or moving too much if possible. Everything you do from the moment you awake will take you farther and farther from the dream. Be as still as you can, so you don’t ‘jostle’ the dream out of your mind, so to speak.
Once you’ve made your list of symbols in your dream, go through each one to see if you can relate it to anything that has happened in the past few days. If you can, this dream may fall under the category of a ‘Regular’ dream (see article on the Different Types of Dreams above), which is a dream that is basically made up of events from our recent past and that usually do not contain any significant messages.
Cancel out these symbols as you go, perhaps crossing them out in pencil as a visual aid at first. See how many symbols can be connected to events and situations that came up during your recent waking life.

Things to ask yourself:
• What symbols were in my dream? How did I feel towards those symbols?
• What events were happening? How did I feel during these events?
• What is the overall feeling or thought I have upon waking from the dream?
• How could I sum up what happened in my dream in one sentence?
• What was the setting of my dream? Location? Season? Time of day? Etc.
Break down your Dream Symbols:
Look further into the events and symbols in your dream by examining what you have written down, piece by piece. Break things down until it feels right to you. Play the word association or free association game and figure out what your symbols were meant to convey to you.

• Think about popular sayings, analogies, metaphors, similes, clichés etc to relate the symbols to your life so you can connect them to the meaning.
• Pay attention to how you feel in the dream. Are you fearful, peaceful, happy? Use adjectives to describe as much as possible.
• Pay attention to your surroundings. Was it night or day in your dream? What season was it? Where did thedream take place? What was the weather like?
• Do any of the symbols have special meaning to you?
• Were there any specific themes that seemed to be repeated in your dream(s)?
• Pay attention to your intuition. If you feel that the cat represents yourself in the dream, it probably does.
• Pay attention to any symbols that are repeated in your dream.
• Pull out what seems the most important to you – what can you feel you need to pay special attention to.
• Is the dream pointing towards some important situation or event in your waking life at this time?
