Many people are interested in dreams but few have much of interest to say about them. This book is different and worth attention. It began as a simple question, any one of us might ask: Why do some people have success and money, while others spend their lives scraping spare change together for the most basic of things? Why do certain people always seem to make the right decisions & come out on top, even when they get some things wrong? (p8) The surprising answer lay in the world of dreams, their interpretation and of how some dreamers have made self-analysis such as useful personal resource. The author shares many personal experiences as well as those drawn from a general survey of peoples dream world. She explores the entire scene from Sigmund Freud up to more recent guides for the perplexed. She goes deep, revealing over 100 dream symbols, anything from new houses, through dream lovers to aliens. Not revealing the content of a dream to another, at least until you have interpreted and gained from it. This, just one secret she gleaned. Dreams are postcards, straight from your subconscious, telling you about you. One of her informants told a colleague, whom she had hitherto trusted, of a strange dream she had just had about a mutual colleague. then watched mortified as her otherwise trusted but obviously jealous colleague, strode boldly to the dream subject, and told them all the gory details. But the dream was not necessarily about anyone in particular, their appearance was most likely the personification of anxiety about an unfamiliar working environment. A secret unwanted admirer or personification of someones angst - better not say anything? The author is drawing upon the wisdom of sages and writers from times past. All of which shows how dreams reveal the blocks that are holding one's life up. Along the way, she explores those uncharted depths of consciousness. And shows how successful people have always tuned into the subconscious, conversing with so-called dream counsellors who really did change their future.
