The Meaning of Snakes in a Dream

Dream Meaning of Snakes

It’s interesting how often I am asked about what it means when a snake appears in a dream. If you are using my 6 Points of Entry method for uncovering meaning in your dream, the appearance of a snake will fall into the “symbols” category. Let me begin by saying that symbols in a dream […]

Carl Jung Quote and Dream Analysis

Carl Jung Quote: Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.

In my recent endeavours to find ways to introduce the general public to the incredible value of dream analysis, I often think of this story about Carl Jung, because in it is captured the essence of all our dreams have to provide for us.

Synchronicity at work

Woman wearing all black in dream meanings

I am a dream analyst. The other day, I was working with a client on the telephone, who was describing her dream filled with themes of black and white. My office is in my home and from my desk I have a view of the vestibule. While I was discussing her dream with my client, my daughter came into the house and walked past me into her bedroom. When she passed I noticed she was dressed all in black.

Repetition In Dreams

Problem Solving While You Sleep

Wondering what to do about something that’s bothering you? Life is filled with decisions– our own, others’, and even those others telling us what decisions to make. But the fact is, deep down inside, we usually know exactly what we should do. The trick is getting in there to access that wisdom.

Messy house! Dream or Nightmare?

Our home….every room….was filled with people. I don’t think I knew them but in the dream, they’re all friends….but friends who don’t leave!!! And the furniture is moved all over the place. In some cases there’s even more furniture than there was! For example, there’s three TV’s in the den. And there’s musical instruments everywhere along with musicians. It’s as though Andy doesn’t even notice all this going on!….Or anyway he isn’t bothered by it.

Death and Dying in Dreams

Grim reaper of death and dying

Like many people, you may have dreamed about people you love who have died, or about dying yourself. While these dreams about death can be sad or frightening, they don’t have to be. Dreams of death and visits from deceased loved ones are not necessarily about death in the literal sense. To find out what these dreams mean, you…
