Never interpret your dreams intellectually! Reasoning creates distance. Such distance often leads us to misunderstand symbols and whole dreams. Symbols are dealt with by the heart and not by the intellect, because their effect lies in moving something emotionally. Dreams therefore must always be approached on an emotional level. We can often recognize intuitively—and very quickly—what a dream is trying to tell us. Bring a little bit of your heart to every dream analysis and you will gain a lot.
