Dream & Symbol Dictionaries

We believe that your dream symbols and metaphors are created by your own unique, inner ‘dream maker.’  The genius of our psyche—or inner guide—most often draws upon our unique life experience to create our dreams. We believe it is ultimately more desirable to share your dreams and arrive at interpretation with an experienced dreamworker, therapist and/or to participate in a dream group.

That said, it is nevertheless helpful at times to refer to a good symbol dictionary in order to become educated and more familiar with symbolic language and metaphor. If you know of other symbol dictionaries that we might include, please send information on to us.

Here is a list of some of our most recommendable Dream Symbol Dictionaries. We hope you find it of value!
