Back in the eighties, I had a dream about an earthquake. in the dream, I am sitting in my living room when the earthguake hits. The wood beam ceiling collapses and the elm tree in the yard falls. Then I woke up. The dream was on a Monday night. I had the same dream on Tuesday and then again on Wednesday. That morning, I told my neighbor about the dream and he started to get worried ."Did you see my house?" he asked.

Thursday and Friday night there was no dream. However, on Saturday morning while

I learned to interpret my dreams from this book. It is not a dream dictionary of any sort, but is rather a guide to using different methods to determine your own symbolism and the relevance of the dream to your waking life. My favorite technique that I learned from this book is Gestalting the aspects of the dream, also known in psychology as the empty chair technique. This book led me to further explore Gestalt therapy and Jungian psychology.

I am an avid dream seeker; I remember them, I write them down, I ask others about their dreams..I have read many books and this has been one of the most concise yet. I bought one for a friend that calls and asks me to help. I will be calling her now.Edgar Cayce aside, Faraday spoke to me.

Very fun! Some useful stuff in terms of dream journaling but a lot of nuttiness after that

This book, which I read a long time ago, did provide some useful advice on dream interpretation although I found it didnt add as much to what Faraday wrote in Dream Power but as with that book, while I was reading this one, I remembered many more dreams than I usually do, and recorded quite a number of them. ...more

A terrific overall look at dreams, dream work, and dream interpretation. Faraday doesn't subscribe to any one "school" of dream interpretation. She takes bits of many and weaves it together, encouraging readers to develop a personal philosophy. Loved this book.

Inspirational, certainly helped teach my mind about our previous day's associations that come up in our subconscious dreaming.
