The Mother of All Dream Dictionaries
When I began studying dreams and practicing interpretation, books by psychiatrists such as Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud were all I had on hand to guide me. I’d wake up with my head full of dream memories and search the indexes of those books, hoping to be led to the meaning of my dreams. Those books gave me great insights into dream psychology, but not so much into my dreams.
Fast-forward 25 years. I wrote the book I needed back then, an all-in-one reference for dream interpretation that explains the process and the psychology behind it, and provides a comprehensive dictionary of symbols and meanings: The Dream Interpretation Dictionary: Symbols, Signs, and Meanings.
It’s the mother of all dream dictionaries. I wrote it to fill the gap left by dream dictionaries that are too broad, vague, simplistic or misinformed to be much use to anyone. Readers who are new to dream interpretation will appreciate its clarity and step by step instructions. Experienced dream enthusiasts will love the fact that this book teaches them something new and goes into the depth they want. It shows you how to personalize your dream symbols and understand them in the context of the stories in which they appear.
The following feedback from an advance reader of my book thrills me because to me it says “mission accomplished:”
This dream dictionary tells me things I did not know before.
Those are the words of Dutch psychologist and Jungian therapist Drs. Susanne Van Doorn. She’s a guru of dreams and consciousness and for her to say she learned something new … that’s high praise! Use this link to read Susanne’s full review of my book and see how she used it to help her figure out the meaning and significance of one of her dreams.
