In the second phase, after a dream has been told, it is important to make sure that what the dreamer has said has been clearly understood. It can happen that the dreamer -- as she or he told the dream -- used a word or an expression that is unfamiliar (especially possible if the dreamer comes from a different culture and/or has a different mother tongue).

     It is sometimes helpful for the dreamer to tell the dream again. In so doing, it often happens that more detail is remembered and included. After one is sure that the dream has been clearly understood, one can proceed to phase three and begin using the four tools.
