In this enlightening book, psychologist Therese Duckett shows how our dreams are important in helping us understand our lives and improve our health and wellbeing. Using a host of examples from her own casework, she outlines the most common dream symbols and explains their significance. She also guides us through the fascinating dimension of the 'collective unconscious' mind and explains its importance to us all as human beings.
Simply written and with a direct application to all our lives, Dreams Speak is a wonderful tool for anyone intrigued by the language of dreams.
After thirty years of research Australian psychologist shares the secret language of dreams.
"Your dreams are speaking to you. All you need to do is to listen to them and to learn their language."
Dreams are important – they connect us to our subconscious and provide clues and sometimes blunt reminders about the issues in our lives. For those in the know "the dream is a little hidden door to the secret recesses of the psyche."
"Once you begin to understand your own dream language you may find that the way you live will begin to change as you identify what is right for you intrinsically. When you begin to listen to the wise person within you the rewards may be many..."
Some dreams are prophetic: Jung reported dreaming of the Second World War long before its advent, and Genghis Kahn saw his conquests in his dreams. Some dreams provide warnings of all kinds; Abraham Lincoln often had a dream in which he saw two images of himself in a mirror, one of which was his ghost.
Psychologist Therese Duckett has made a life long study of dreams and has kept her own dream journal for thirty years. Through her psychology practice and dream workshops Therese has come to understand that "those who choose to look at their dreams and take them seriously usually find the dreams seem to co-operate with them – providing them with further and more meaningful insights."
Using a host of examples from her own casework, Therese shows us how important our dreams are in helping us understand our lives and improve our health and wellbeing. She outlines the most common dream symbols (food, animals, death, clothing, vehicles and others), explains their significance and provides a suggested range of core questions.
At the same time we are cautioned to avoid stereotypes, to allow these symbols to evolve, as the same symbol will often reappear in our dreams bringing with it new insights and understanding. A father-figure alone tells us little but where he was located may tell us more. She also guides us through the fascinating dimension of the 'Collective Unconscious' mind and explains its importance to us all as human beings.
How we dream is also explained. Did you know that in order to dream you need plenty of REM sleep? The techniques that can help you regularly enjoy this are remarkably simple. Dreams Speak will show you how. Therese has seen a wide range of physical and mental benefits as a result of people understanding their dreams.
To benefit from Dreams Speak you will need to be: willing to dream; able to train your dream recall; willing to attempt to gain some understand; and, ready to take notice.
Simply written and with a direct application to all our lives, Dreams Speak is a wonderful tool for anyone either curious or concerned about their dreams.
