dreams are merely expressions of ourselves, that which has happened, or
conditions which have been created, either for or against
us. These symbols are created as if we are role playing a situation or
condition, allowing us an opportunity to come to terms with
or understand what they mean.
re-enacting a dream, we can identify more closely what the symbols
mean and give us a greater insight to what we are trying to

can be distorted, obscure, fogged or life like.
many people fail to see the value of understanding
their dreams, these are what I call surface dwellers, they are the
ones who fail to see further than their self created, social confinement,
both physical or psychological and invariably miss the valued opportunity
to understand their real inner selves.
when we wish to explore the infinite depths of the mind, beyond
which is restricted only by an inability, or lack of correct attitude,

give to us the ultimate satisfaction and psychological development which
at present, we may only from time to time dream of.

your dream into perspective. Helping you to understand your dreams more
fully will help you to come to terms with yourself.
