Dream Dictionary Review + Giveaway!

Dream Dictionary Giveaway!!
It is interesting that many believe that there could be multiple sources that stimulate a dream. If this belief is held by some, why use one source to interpret dreams? A dream dictionary has a collection of common themes found in dreams and their definitions. These definitions are formulated after reviewing thousands of dreams and finding a common interpretation.

I do not use dream books. I have a few dream dictionaries in my book collection, but I can say I skimmed them when first purchased and put them back on my bookshelf. I have no problem with dreams dictionaries; I just feel that a bird in my dream does not have the same meaning as bird in the next persons dream.  Dr. Paul Jessen in 1855 published an article in which he stated “The content of dreams is more or less determined by the individual personality, by age, sex, station in life, education, habits, and by events and experiences of the whole past life.”  I believe that in order to accurately interpret and understand a dream other factors need to be considered.

Dream Dictionary by Tony Crisp is an informative overview of the meaning of dream symbols. The book begins with a brief overview of dreams and how it relates to the dreamer. The overview, even though brief, is very informative for those who might be new to the history of dreams. For someone who is a beginner when it comes to analyzing dreams, this book will be very helpful and for someone is more seriously into dreams, this book is also comprehensive. Overall, this is a good book. So why am I giving it away? Dream Dictionary by Tony Crisp is the only dream dictionary I own and highly recommend. I mistakenly one day picked up the same book while at a free book sale at a school library. The Dream Dictionary that I own is the 2002 updated version of the one I am giving away, which is the 1990 version. The book is in good condition and the only marks in the book are the stamps from the library. I was going to give this book away to the local thrift shop, but I decided I would rather it go to someone who reads this blog. The only difference that I can spot between the two versions: a section dedicated to aiding the reader recall and record dreams and the cover is colorful.

i strongly believe in dreams. i dont always know what mine mean but i like to try to figure them out. i think medications make dreams even weirder which makes it harder to figure out.
