This book is my dream bible,
This review is from: 10,000 Dreams Interpreted: An Illustrated Guide to Unlocking the Secrets of Your Dreamlife (Hardcover)
This book is largely a reprint of a dream interpretation manuscript written at the turn of the last century (1800-1900). It draws on some archetypal dream imagery that some feel all people share in our collective unconscious. As old as this information is, it is surprisingly, eerily accurate today. Many times I've had some bizarre dream that I couldn't make sense of, only to look up the imagery in this book and see that it described a situation in my life perfectly. For example, I woke up terrified after having dreamt of being in a huge fire. When I read that fire usually means a burst of energy in the form of huge success in business, I was thrilled. I had just switched careers and, yes, things turned out very well, just like the dream portended. I've had to buy this book for a couple of friends just to get them to stop calling me after every time they had a crazy dream!
