    Great Dream book!I got this book for mom mom for her birthday this year. Since I was a little girl I always have the memory of my mom ALWAYS having her dream book in her hands and open reading about every dream she had. As time went on the book got the front cover ripped, tattered, old, used, ect. To where after a while I noticed it had gone missing from my mom’s hands. She seemed different, lost about her dreams, and wondering if they can be meaning something that she would normally be picking up her book for that information. Well now that I’m an adult I still haven’t seen her with a new dream book (she’s always busy working or taking care of my young sister and has little time for herself) so I decided to get her a new updated one this year! I looked through the book to make sure it’s not just like a dictionary, which it is not it is written very well with lots of information about LOTS of different things you might dream about! *P.S. I noticed Noone really posted any examples of what you find IN the book so I took a few pics of that to because some dream books are just basically dictionaries and I didn’t want that so I tried to see if anyone posted of what was in the book to have a good idea but there were none. So here you go!*

    The Dream Interpretation Dictionary; Symbols, Signs and Meanings is my newest bedside BEST bookEver since I was a little girl I was fascinated by dreams and always wondered if they meant something.This interest has never left me and now as a grown up, I continue look for answers I know are already inside me.Then one day I was listening Coast to Coast AM radio show and the show was about Dream Symbolism & Analysis with Mr. J.M. DeBord. I was so impressed that the next day I ordered his book Dreams 1-2-3 as well his latest book: The Dream Interpretation Dictionary; Symbols, Signs and Meanings… These books are an awesome study guild. It is written as something simple and beautiful and that is why this helps people to be able to understand their dreams with the ease of a gentle beginnings. Before one can learn to walk, one must crawl.The easy instructions to remembering dreams worked for me like a charm. In few days I was able to remember my dreams and not just the actions or the feelings of it but also tiny details that I had never took seriously before and paid no attention to them. Shapes and colors, numbers and patterns, all the little clues became more interesting and clear in my dreams.I visited his blog on and posted one of my recurring dreams on the board. In no time Mr. DeBord replied and offered an interpretation that made the repetition clear to me. I had found him on Facebook as well and he accepted me as friend. He said he does not usually accept such invitations from strangers, but since I’ve studied tarot he would take the chance, so I felt honored in some way. We have great conversations online and he has helped me to interpret my other old recurring dreams. I keep dreaming with more clarity and depth and this has invigorated me to remember more and more. One of my latest dreams felt like an alert for a potential health issue concerned about my husband’s blood-pressure and I collaborated my suspicions with Mr. DeBord. It seems he has taught me well and I was right about the interpretation. He said; “Yeah, your interpretation is right on. You’re learning!”A couple of days ago a friend told me that he has recurring dreams about flying. I told him that he wants to go somewhere, and he should be confident about doing just that. Actually he is “ready” to retire but not so confident about it at this time. He was smiling at me gently when I told him something that he already knew. The very emotion behind that smile meant he too knew this.It is so exciting to be working with my “newly” found, old passion. I am compelled to, with no reservations, recommend The Dream Interpretation Dictionary; Symbols, Signs and Meanings by J.M. DeBord to anyone who is looking for self-improvement, answers or just wanting to understand more about their mind and heart. You may even realize the potential you that might not have known was in you.The Dream Interpretation Dictionary; Symbols, Signs and Meanings is my newest bedside Bible. Thank you so much for providing such an awesome book once again. I will treasure it rest of my life.

    This book shouldn’t be sold here. I will begin using this as soon as I have a dream. But the one entry it has that made me skeptical was Kanye West ?! I fact for the K s there wasn’t many listed K words at all. Don’t get me started on No Unicorns! AT this point I am a little disappointed. But I will give it a chance. I was expecting a lot more words and explanations. It claims being a Dictionary and Encyclopedia all in one, yet it doesn’t cover nearly enough words to rate more of a guide to some dream teams at best. It doesn’t cover enough to be classified either a Dictionary or Encyclopedia. As I said it is a nice book. And I will use it for my dreams, if I can find the things I dream about, it seems very limited. I tried to use this book for a dream I had, I couldn’t find one word in my dream. I am also appalled with the mention of 2 past presidents. And the description of several words. BUYER BEWARE, THIS author is no dream expert. Save your money, I wish I had.

    ReaderHad this book maybe 5 years back and it was more insightful than this version they romped lots of content to seem relevant there was no Facebook for dreams interpretation omg just leave the good stuff like it was

    So far I love itI ordered this book to help me decipher my night terrors. So far it’s great but what confuses me is why they would put an entry only to say “please see ….” Idk it confused me a tad. Also the subjects can be kind of limited or broad. But I’d say great for beginners.

    FANTASTIC BOOKAT LAST I’ve finally found the book that accurately describes my dreams and meanings , I’ve bought so many dream dictionaries that I was becoming really fed up , one actually kept repeating the same thing over and over again , this book is FABULOUS, I have spent all day since receiving looking up all my dreams , the book describes everything and gives reasons why we have certain dreams , also the dreams to take notice of , good long descriptions of dreams . The author of this book definitely knows what he is talking about , at last I’m understanding more of my dreams . BUY this book , you Will not regret it , also a very decent size unlike others I have purchased ❤️❤️❤️

    Avoid, useless doesn’t even contain things like helicopters.I purchased this dream book as a present for my mum who has one or two already that are very old, the main one being probably thirty years old and yes that’s better than this one!. This book is utterly useless as it has stupid pointless things in it, but doesn’t contain major big significant things like helicopters!. So yes if you have a dream about a helicopter or a bus forget trying to find out the meaning of it from this book as it doesn’t even contain those things!. This absolutely is not a dream dictionary when it doesn’t have common everyday objects like a bus or helicopter!. Yes everyone doesn’t use helicopters everyday but it’s something that’s prominent in everyday life, often seem on tv, in films and obviously up in the sky!. Furthermore the police helicopter or coastguard helicopter can have different meanings either very good or very tragic so for a “comprehensive” dream book to not even contain helicopters etc is ridiculous!.Useless not worth the money avoid it,I wouldn’t even recommend it if it was £2.99!.
