Kids and their Dreams
a Dream Group!
A Dream Study Group is a great way to
spend some colorful, entertaining, and meaningful time with friends.
By sharing dreams and finding various angles on interpretation,
group members gain deeper self-understanding and facilitate their
intuition development process. By using both Dreams for
Dummies and Dream Dictionary for Dummies,
the group can follow along with the chapters and do the exercises,
then use the dictionary for interpretation of the resulting dreams.
Participants keep track of their dreams and
personal process in a journal, and even do art projects like vision
boards. Results often open new levels of self-expression. The group
provides a safe, supportive environment in which to open inner knowing
and take risks in sharing personal insights. As groups continue,
it's common to even begin to have group dreams!
Tips for Creating a Successful Dream Group
Penney wrote this dream dictionary
to modernize many dream meanings to align with current trends
in higher awareness. At the same time, the symbol meanings contain
great common sense.
This book is unique
as dream dictionaries go: each definition is written
so you can interpret the dream symbol at the physical, emotional,
and mental-spiritual level. By examining the fullness of each
symbol you can reach a deeper understanding of what your inner
self is saying to you. Reading about each symbol becomes a wonderful
intuitive process in itself!
This fun and fascinating guide
shows you not only how to interpret your dreams, but how to remember
them, and even how to make a dream work for you.
The book contains seven chapters,
in addition to an A-to-Z list of dream symbols and their meanings.
You'll learn to:
• Recognize your dream
• Remember dreams more
• Create and use a dream
• Interpret your waking
• Focus your dreams to
problems and make decisions
The book's handy 5x7 format makes it perfect for your
bedside or to take along when you travel!
Here are a couple sample definitions:
• Physical: You're looking at a problem with your energy
flow or circulation. You are focusing on a blockage in your body,
or an obstacle in a project or your personal growth process. You
aren't ready to deal with something yet and must "go around"
or seek a different course of action.
• Emotional: You are afraid to confront something or
someone directly and are seeking a way to avoid a conflict. You're
making excuses to distract yourself from feeling uncomfortable
You must revise your plans. You've reached an impasse where a
way of thinking isn't getting results anymore, and you must improvise
and use your imagination to reinvent yourself. Your soul is moving
you in a new, surprise direction.
• Physical: You are grinding your teeth or there
is a potential tooth problem. You are examining the subtle balances
in your body and life that maintain health. You are focusing on
confidence, competence, assertiveness, aggression, and your ability
to cut through or bite through tough or confusing situations.
You are looking at your ability to engage and accomplish things:
"I can sink my teeth into it," or I've "bitten
off more than I can chew." Loose teeth or losing your teeth
indicates you're losing power, courage, your grasp on a situation,
or the ability to succeed. A gleaming white movie-star smile indicates
you are putting on a show, or someone is too seductive.
• Emotional: You're self-conscious about your appearance
and self-worth. Losing teeth means you fear looking foolish, being
embarrassed, unattractive, getting older or impotent, or you refuse
to face reality and are retreating to infancy. You've lost self-respect.
Biting or being bitten means you feel angry and defensive.
• Mental-Spiritual: You are looking at how you
articulate and express yourself. Rotten, yellow, or decaying teeth
link to lies, insincerity, lack of character, and untrustworthiness.
Swallowing a tooth means you may have to "eat your words."
