For anyone who is interested in what it means to work with their dreams, for anyone who would like to know WHY it is useful to do this, Taylor's book is an excellent place to begin. He takes you through all the basic questions, including hints to improve dream recall (for those of us who insist we can't remember what we've dreamed in the night), all the way through various aspects of what various elements in our dreams are likely to mean. He also looks at how the knowledge gained through dream analysis may be applied our waking lives.
Jeremy Taylor's techniques empower seekers to mine the priceless treasures buried in the unconscious, encouraging the confrontation and transformation of the darkest aspects within, in collaboration with the highest spiritual guidance. Highly recommended.
While I have always remembered my dreams it was like 1-3 dreams a night I would remember. Then I went on a long vacation to the islands, ate tons of fish and my health took a plummet. It was only a few years later that I figured out with the help of a doctor that I had mercury poisoning from the fish toxicity. Toxicity my body wasn't able to remove without some serious external drug treatment. Along with the toxicity my dream time went wild. I was waking all night long with dreams, nightmares, night terrors.
Without going into the details.. the dreaming and brain patterning never returned to what is was pre mercury toxicity. A couple years ago I started figuring out how on earth I could make the best of the unbelievable amount of information, experiences and adventures that were happening to me all night long. It was overwhelming. I was exhausted when I woke up. I found Robert Moss and that was great. I found Crisis Dreaming which was also helpful... and just kept reading and reading and reading. I landed on Jeremy Taylor few months ago and wow, this is a phenomenal book too. His other books are great too. Some repetition, but repetition and reminders about how to work with dreams is not a bad thing. There are so many ways to look at a dream to extract valuable information. So rereading information is good. I believe that Jeremy Taylor is one of the earlier ones to incorporate the learning and teachings of all the others into a more complete way to look at dreams. Each of the forebears had "their technique" which was pretty rigid. I think dreams are unique to each person and the bigger the approach and understanding to working with them the better.
Jeremy Taylors work is definitely a "must read" for those seeking awareness. But don't stop there and explore the others because they all hold pieces of the puzzle for unraveling and being able to use dreams for their greatest wealth of wisdom for improving life and creating greater sense of peace in oneself.
