Dreams are a subject we haven't dealt with much yet, and it's about time we do so.
Dreams are, most definitely, the most personal aspect of your spiritual life. I've been known to say that your magickal tools are as personal as your toothbrush or your underwear, but toothbrushes, underwear and a lot of magickal tools are things that you buy and you make them personal by consecrating them and using them. Your dreams are not like that, because they come from within you and so they just might be consecrated by their very existence. Other than a few outside influences (like perhaps someone leaving the TV on), your dreams come from within you. It can't get more personal than that!
And so, the next question is what to do with them. The main thing you want to do is, of course, figure out what a dream is telling you. Are you being given advice? Is an observation being offered? Are you being told that something is going to happen? You're not seeing some Ancient One sit in a chair and say "OK, here's how it's going to be...." It's up to you to figure it out.
It's personal, so seeing something in your dream might mean something for you that might not be valid for someone else. But - how will you know?
And then, of course, the question of what you do with it once you think you know what you've been shown?
