We dream that we're flying in an airplane. Does it mean that we yearn for a vacation? Maybe, but there are often deeper meanings, too. Since the beginning of time, men and women have wondered about the meanings of their dreams, and have resorted to many different ways of interpreting them. This beautifully illustrated volume brings together the origins, the history, and the psychological investigations relating to dream interpretation in a beautifully illustrated, easy-to-read format. Topics explored include --
-- Emotional and physiological reasons why we all need to dream
-- Dreams and their interpretations throughout history, with examples from the Bible, ancient Egypt, Greece, India, and other cultures
-- Modern interpretation throughout history, with examples from the Bible, ancient Egypt, Greece, India, and other cultures
-- Modern interpretation of dreams and their meanings, including the theories of psychologists Sigmund Freud and Karl Jung

A major section of this book presents a directory of dream symbols and their various possible meanings. Images interpreted include colors, numbers, pregnancy, death, skeletons, drowning, rivers, storms, parents, familiar places, dogs, cats, birds, fish, journeys by auto, plane, or train, chasing or being chased, nakedness, sex, bathing, and many, many others. The volume's final section gives advice on making the most of one's dreams, and suggests bedtime techniques to enhance lucid dreaming.
