UNDERSTANDING DREAMS:
For you and your family

Introduction

THE MORE YOU STUDY DREAMS, the more important
they are apt to become. Everyday dreams about everyday affairs can
grow and develop into something vastly more significant. If you are
studying your family’s dreams, you may find that their dreams too
are becoming more important as time goes on, as though they are
keeping pace with your own personal dream development. This is
how they work. Our everyday thoughts and feelings have to take a
back seat as the ‘dreaming cycle’ kicks into action and the hidden
‘inner feelings’, with their power of intuition, explore the contents
of those parts of our minds which are normally unconscious.

This book takes the reader through the entire gamut of dream analysis
and interpretation. The emphasis, perhaps, tends to be on family life,
because a family unit is a rather special entity, bound together by the
invisible bonds of intuition. Everybody is linked intuitionally at a very
deep level, but the family especially so. Intuition is the means of knowing
something about somebody else without having to be told, without
having to see or hear; it is the art of communicating without words.
One way to discover these golden bonds is by remembering, recording
and understanding your dreams: your own personal dreams, your
parents' dreams, your spouse’s or partner’s dreams, your children’s
dreams.

Dreams become more and more meaningful as we begin to
understand them better. People who are spiritually orientated will
find the most amazing insights through their studies, and in equal
measure their lives will be directed heavenwards. Those who are
not so inclined will discover the truth of Sigmund Freud’s
assertion, that “the interpretation of dreams is the royal road to
knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind”, and
discover, as Freud’s associate Carl Gustav Jung discovered, that
this road leads to what he called psychological individuation – the
process of becoming a uniquely whole, integrated person.
