Disclaimer: Chosen Books sent me a copy of What Your Dreams Are Telling You in exchange for an honest review. All opinions, as always, are 100% my own.
One of the things I’ve sort of hated to do since I was a kid was dream. I know. That sounds awful. Why wouldn’t one want to dream? Well, typically, when I dream, it usually has a way of coming true. I rarely dream, so when I do, I take heed. You see, I believe I’ve been blessed with a spiritual gift, visions (most of you know it as deja vu). Sometimes it can be painfully scary to dream, but it’s something I’ve been working through my entire life.
So, when I signed up to review Cindy McGill and David Sluka’s book, What Your Dreams Are Telling You, I prepared myself to hear what had to be said about dreams. Now, the book isn’t a “I dreamed about this, what does it mean” specific guide. No, it’s a guide to making the most of the time you spend sleeping and being open to the messages you are given in your sleep. The authors note that dreams have a way of giving you advice you might need or opening your eyes to a new opportunity (or idea).
The book will talk about:
— how to get the most out of your dreams
— historical and present-day examples of life-changing dreams
— common dream themes and what they mean
— 3 steps to discover the genuine message from your dreams
— a quick-reference guide to common dream symbols
— how to reawaken your dream life
This is a book that I didn’t jump into head first (reading front to back) but instead moving through the book by referencing certain sections at a time. I was less interested in the common themes section (because my dreams aren’t so much themed as specific) and more interested in discovering the genuine messages from my dreams. Since my dreams are so specific, my lessons from the book were more general (and that’s okay by me); however, for people who have dreams that they are trying to piece together, I think this is a great resource.
You can find out more about the book and the authors on Chosen’s website. It retails for $13.99 in paperback and e-book format.
