A new book from psychologists that study dreams identifies for the first time the Top 100 dreams all of us have and why. We all dream but often times the dreams are bizarre and confusing experiences that do not make any sense to us no matter how we try and figure them out.
The key to dream understanding lies in looking beyond just the individual symbols and being able to see the whole picture in the stories that each night our minds create. It is not a dictionary about dreams but a book written to help find the meanings of your dreams and how they can relate to something or help in your waking life.
Most of us recognize that many times we have recurring dreams on a regular basis. Some have even been with us since childhood. In Ian Wallace’s, the Dream Psychologist’s revealing new book he presents the 100 most popular dreams and tells how to work with them to help our lives and what they mean.
The key to understanding our dreams is to look beyond individual symbols so we can become aware of the bigger patterns we create every night when we dream. One hundred dream patterns are consistently reported by dreamers everywhere in the world, regardless of country or culture. Using his psychological background Ian describes the 100 most common dreams and their associated meanings, actions and backgrounds.
These universal themes appear again and again in your dreams because they reflect your own fundamental life patterns. By recognising these universal patterns in your own dreams, you will begin to achieve a much deeper understanding of both your dreams and yourself. These bigger patterns reflect who you could be in your life, illuminating what you really need and showing how you can accomplish your lifelong ambitions. The Top 100 Dreams describes these universal dream patterns, explains why you dream them, and suggests how you can use them to help you realise your most cherished hopes and aspirations in everyday life.
So if you regularly dream about having to do a presentation without knowing the words, or being the only one naked in a room full of people, this book will help you discover how you can make these dreams work for you! As Ian says, ‘A dream is just a dream until you put it in to action.’
