The Gift of Dreams is a beautiful guide to understanding the enigmatic world of dreams. It includes the earliest known dream dictionary, found in ancient Egypt, written on papyrus and dated 1250 BCE, to the work of Sigmund Freud, who analysed and interpreted dreams as part of psychoanalysis.
Dreams have long been regarded as a gateway to understanding yourself. About one-third of our lives is spent sleeping and dreaming, and dreams can be exhilarating, terrifying, moving and sometimes, if you can decode the secrets they are telling you, they can also be life-changing.
Detailed descriptions are given for over 50 different dream themes and motifs and what they may mean, from dreaming about a hospital, which may signal a health concern; missing a bus, which can indicate a real-life feeling you are missing out on something; to water dreams, which point towards rebirth, emotional issues and spiritual cleansing. More than a simple A-Z, its special features include descriptions on sleep states, why we dream, remembering your dreams and weaving the magic of dreams into your life.
In The Gift of Dreams you will discover a fascinating inner world that provides insight, wisdom and inspiration into your greatest self.
