The Dictionary of Dreams - Review

Dreams can be fun and adventurous, but also frightening and distorted, and still again, they can be an endless combination of both. From spitting teeth out (a sign of aging), to creepy, crawly spiders (a sign that one feels like an outsider), dreams can mean much more to us once we learn how to decipher their hidden meanings. Whether positive or negative, The Dictionary of Dreams gives you all the tools, symbols, and their true meanings to translate our cryptic nightly images.

Starting with selections from classic texts like Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis, and 10,000 Dreams Interpreted by Gustavus Hindman Miller, one of the first authors to complete a thorough study of all the symbols that appear in our dream-scape, this updated edition with a board of popular psychics and mediums will feature revisions (such as cell phones, computers, televisions, and more) of Miller’s original interpretations to bring the book up to speed with our modern life.


So it feel like a lie to not come out and say, I have not read this book cover to cover but it's not one of those books. I've been using it for a few days to help with some dreams I've been having and so far, I've found everything that I've needed in this book. Usually with these types of dream books, I end up using two or three just for one dream. 

This is really nice, I love dream work and anything related to that and so this book will continue to stay on my bedside table for if I need it. It's really handy. It also uses simple and easy to understand wording. This one dream book I used was rather confusing. So this great for anyone who is into dream work, be it someone new to this or someone who's been doing it for years. So if this is your thing, get this book, you will not regret it at all!
