About the Author
J.M. DeBord began studying and interpreting dreams two decades ago, and now one of his personal dreams comes true with the publication of Dreams 1-2-3: Remember, Interpret, and Live Your Dreams, a groundbreaking book that makes dreams understandable for everyone and shows how they can be used for your benefit.
DeBord's publishing career began 25 years ago. He has worked in newspaper, radio and television journalism, and is the author of a novel, Something Coming: a New Age Thriller. He currently lives in Tucson, Arizona and interprets dreams as a moderator at Reddit Dreams, where he is known as "RadOwl."

I definitely recommend this book to anyone wishing to understand their dreams better!
DeBord divides his book into three sections: Remember Your Dreams (keeping a dream journal, focus on symbols, setting, and characters, look for the narrative components – action, reaction, resolution); Interpret your dreams (find the threads and ties, explore the metaphors and language, speak the words of dreams out loud, how to approach nightmares, recurring dreams – why we have them an how to use them, how to know interpretation is on target); Live Your Dreams (using dreams for personal growth, enticing an active imagination, hearing your inner dialogue). Rather then simply explaining each of his topics listed above, DeBord inserts invaluable and very cogent Tips throughout this book, e.g. ‘Dream images are generally not to be taken literally, but as symbols of part of your self and the dynamics of your inner life’, Embrace your nightmares as opportunities for personal growth – don’t run from them’ etc.
DeBord spends considerable time and space discussing dream symbolism (death, rape, drugs, colors, marriage, video games, sex, ocean and water, etc) that is as fascinating as it if helpful. But ultimately, throwing the ball back into our court, he sums up the three sets of his book on dreams: Recognize the importance of your dreams and remember them, Write them down. Learn their structure, symbolism, and storytelling qualities; Discover the meaning of your dreams by associating the details with your life, whether your inner life or your outer life. Pay close attention to your feelings, and remember that almost everything is symbolic. Speak the language and decipher the messages; Live your dreams by making them part of your daily life and following where they lead. Work with your dreams while awake, realizing they are products of your imagination. Use your dreams to create your future.’
A lot of quotes from the book here in this review, but DeBord speaks so comfortably and plainly that it is difficult to paraphrase him. We all dream. We all could benefit from this book. Grady Harp, November 13
