Harness the Power of Your Dreams
Understanding our dreams can give us a huge advantage in all facets of life, including work, love, health, and spirituality. Providing practical, step-by-step techniques for gaining access to our dream lives, dream expert Cynthia Richmond charts the landscape of dreams and their rich, perplexing meanings. Analyzing more than 200 real-life dreams that fall into certain important categories -- dreams of departed loved ones, schools and tests, flying, water, public nudity, and sex -- Richmond reveals their common themes, symbols, and significance.
She also takes traditional dream interpretation an important step further, showing us how to transform our insights into life-changing opportunities. To understand our dreams fully, we must look deep into ourselves and ask: What do I want? What am I afraid of? What is my gift? What can I share with the world? The answers will come to us in our sleep, helping us to make powerful changes in our lives. As Richmond shows us with authority and inspiration, the path to a better life is only a dream away.
