I dream, therefore I exist.
– J. August Strindberg
Dreams are timeless, but books written about them aren’t. That’s why I’m delighted this Dream Dictionary has earned itself a reissue. The images that appear in our dreams are informed by enduring archetypes and symbols, but also by what is current and relevant to our lives today. Being given the opportunity to update the Introduction and endmatter, and add some additional entries, close to fifteen years after this book was first written, ensures its relevance. I hope this updated version will remain a classic bedside dream companion for many years to come.
We’ve all woken up from dreams that have felt incredibly real, as if what we experienced actually happened, but then we wake up and can’t make any sense of whatever it was that we felt and saw. We wonder what it all meant.
The majority of dream researchers today believe that dreams are not random and meaningless but rich in messages from our unconscious. They are inner communications that, if we know how to interpret them, can be powerful tools for personal growth. Sadly, many of us forget our dreams when we wake up, and this is a great loss. According to the Talmud: ‘A dream which is not interpreted is like a letter which is not read.’
