I was only on page 7 when I first thought, "this book is incredible!" I was eager to continue because I have three long-term recurring and disturbing dreams.
By page 42, I'd discovered the meaning to dream #1--not fully clothed in front of people who shouldn't see me that way. My answer: I'm surprising myself in serendipitous and spontaneous ways. How it's affected me: It's exciting and I don't know what to expect next, but I'm looking forward to wonderful things.
By page 122, I'd resolved dream #2--an apocalyptic scene where I'm in an armored tank outside a devastated town. My answer: It was really just a signal of a life transformation--a new discovery. How it's affected me: My life in the dream is not really dark and scary. In real life, I am on the brink of a great big change, and it's kind of scary.
By page 135, I'd solved dream #3. It was a single disturbing flash of a dream in which I'm walking down a dark street in a big city with someone I don't know, feeling excited but guarded. My answer: I'm not alone. How it's affected me: I'm relieved, and think I'm in for a very exciting journey full of possibilities.
The book is easy to read and understand.Read more ›
In the first place she draws no hard lines as to what a dream symbol means and actually gives the dreamer tools to interpret any dream. It's full of illuminating examples that actually made me a better dream interpreter. I've always been a believer that dreams are trying to tell us something and this book uses all the best science, psychoanalysis, and cognition to help us understand what they are trying to say.
Do it! Buy the book. Your dreams are waiting....
I've always considered myself quite good at understanding my dreams but reading Dr. Hudson's book has opened a whole new level of insight for me. She understands that instead of assuming elements have a universal meaning, one needs to look at what they mean for the dreamer in the context of that person's experiences. Looking back at old dreams, I can see even more levels of meaning than I realized at the time.
In other words, I highly recommend this book!
Highly recommended for anyone interested in the language of dreams.
Successive chapters in Into Your Dreams deal with the people in your dreams; flora, fauna and other creatures in your dreams; settings, clothing and objects in your dreams; transportation, signposts and maps in your dreams; what's going on in your dreams; exceptional dreams and consciously directing your dreams. While most of these categories of dreams are self-explanatory the final three categories deserve further explanation.
The chapter "What's Going On?" deals with the meaning of the actions one performs in a dream as well as the emotions associated with the dream. The chapter "Exceptional Dreams" explores dreams that could be termed psychic or transformative in nature, dreams of past lives, dreams of dead people and recurring dreams. The final chapter of the first section "Consciously Directing Your Dreams" covers the topic of lucid dreaming, as well as using hypnosis either to trigger a specific dream or to return to a dream.Read more ›
