Living Your Dreams by Gayle Delaney is an excellent resource for beginner dreamers and experts. The version that I read was a reprint of the 1979 publication. Following her original book, Delaney follows the idea that the dreamer is the creator of their own dreams. Delaney uses movies as an example of dreams and that the dreamer is the star, producer, director, etc. With this idea, she states only the dreamer can truly interpret his dream. Delaney goes through several concepts; dream incubation, different types of dreams, lucid dreams, outer body experiences, starting a dream group, etc.
What I enjoyed the most about this book was the in depth discussion on dreams. Delaney has several dream examples in the book which she references. While I enjoyed the examples, I felt that there were too many lengthy ones. Delaney also provides tips for dream recall, affirmations, incubation ideas, and journaling tips.
I recommend Living Your Dreams by Gayle Delaney for any individual who wishes to delve into readings beyond dream dictionaries.
