From the Back Cover

What are dreams made of? Here is an explanation of precisely that, not just in the physical sense, but also in the ethereal and astral. The author describes not only how the brain and body dream--as well as instructions for how to guide dreams--but also reveals what the different kinds of dreaming are, and what dreams signify for the ego and the spirit.

English clergyman-turned spiritualist CHARLES WEBSTER LEADBEATER (1854-1934) was ordained as an Anglican priest, but later joined the prominent Theosophical Society and traveled to India to study alternative spiritual and occult practices, eventually settling into his life as a clairvoyant and author. His other works include Man Visible and Invisible and The Science of the Sacrament. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This book told me more about my dreams than Jung, Freud, or any of the other Dream Interpreters I've read. It goes way beyond symbolism and basic interpretations - this book takes you to the core source of dream work from an esoteric perspective. It will open your eyes like nothing else!

On dreams. Though not 100% in my opinion. But until I find something more extensive, I'll say this book is a must read on understanding the source of dreams. What I'm doing now is making a record of my dreams and beginning to recognize what triggered a particular one. The information is 100% accurate, it's just that I feel that there's some things it didn't cover on all of the types of dreams we have. I was hoping he would have said something about the falling dreams we have, dropping from high altitudes, but he didn't. Though it covers the most common ones. Like when a wild beast is after you. I lost count of all the dreams like that I've had in my lifetime, and now I know why.

What I was suppose is that once you learn the dynamics of dreaming you can trace the trigger for any type of dream you have. Theosophy studies are extremely extensive and probably takes a couple of years to complete. But I feel certain that by it's completion I'll know dreams like the back of my hand. Grab up any theosophy books of yore you can find. Many can be gotten for free now.

'Dreams: What they Are and How they are Caused' is a highly useful booklet that explains why we dream and what the spiritual reasons are for dreaming.

Now, at the time of writing, back in 1903, when science was far from admitting anything beyond the five senses and when it was firmly believed that all sensations and emotions were processed in the brain, and when the luminous body was strictly denied in science, Leadbeater provided clairvoyant scientific explanations that today we know are true, but that at his time were considered as pure esoterism. Leadbeater first introduces in the aura, or the etheric body, explaining of what it consists and what its function is, and writes:
—Now this etheric double has often been called the vehicle of the human life-ether or vital force (called in Sanskrit prâna), and anyone who has developed the psychic faculties can see exactly how this is so. He will see the solar life-principle almost colorless, though intensely luminous and active, which is constantly poured into earth’s atmosphere by the sun: he will see how the etheric part of his spleen in the exercise of its wonderful function absorbs this universal life, and specializes it into prana, so that it may be more readily assimilable by his body; how it then courses all over that body, running along every nerve-thread in tiny globules of lovely rosy light, causing the glow of life and health and activity to penetrate every atom of the etheric double; and how, when the rose-colored particles have been absorbed, the superfluous life-ether finally radiates from the body in every direction as bluish-white light.
