I have always had epic dreams and wanted to interpret them from the moment I realized that they might mean something important to me and my journey through life. During my search for meanings to my dream symbols, I have discovered that the metaphysical meanings have resonated with me the most.
In this book you get a lot of great guidance all in one place. It is great for beginners and I think it is a wonderful reference to keep on your shelf if you want something to refer to when stuck deciding what something means.
A lot of the little things make this great. For example, when you wake up from a dream just lie there and let your memory grasp the dream. It is easier to remember that way. If you get up raring to start your day, your dream will disappear in a a puff of lost memory. I particularly liked the section where you get to interpret the dream and then see how you did when you read what the author thought the dreams meant.
This is not a dream dictionary. Although, I think it might have been great if there had been something close to that. Maybe there is another title in the “For Beginners” series that will address that particular concern. I have my own favorite but I don’t believe it is appropriate to mention it here.
Like the author says, keep a journal of the most significant dreams. Not every dream will elicit a great deal of meaning. Most of your every day dreams will just be you working through your daily problems and these might not even be dreams you will remember. One nugget of truth is that you remember your dreams most when your sleeping is somehow interrupted while you are in mid-dream. Loved that nugget of truth.
If you love to read books that are for beginners, check out this series by Llewellyn. This Dream Interpretation book is a keeper for sure!
