This is a dictionary of dreams in order by words so you can search for items alphabetically. More of a reference type of book than a reader. I purchased this book because of my interest in the topic and the beauty of the book. The introduction is complete and interesting.
The layout of the book gives the reader ease of use, the topics are extensive, easy to locate with a comprehensive cross reference throughout the book. The beauty of the book is what makes it stand out among similar titles.
It is unfortunate that the positive aspects of this book stop there. I have spent extensive time studying the mind from many aspects, everything I purchased this book because of my interest in the topic and the beauty of the book.
In that I have come to believe that there many truths and all areas should be considered. From my perspective this book seems to carry a negative overtone. Not that Miller’s interpretations are all negative, there just seems to be a strong negativity throughout his commentaries. This, I’m concerned, may instill needless fears in those “searching for answers”.
I strongly believe one truly needs to go with their own personal feelings about their dreams; if their feelings from the dream are negative it represents something negative, and if they are positive it represents something positive. I have read several books on the subject, as well as compared interpretations between authors, in this I found Miller’s “views” were much his own and not a general consensus. Not to mention he seems matter a fact in his interpretations leaving no room for personal exploration.
That said, there are many other books on the subject which can guide one to their own interpretations while still providing a general meaning to what a dream symbolizes, giving individual value to each interpretation.
People come to me with their dreams, asking for interpretation. Sometimes I’m asked what my references are for dream interpretation and I admit that they are internal—intuition and insight into the analogies of the subconscious. Occasionally I come across a book on dream interpretation, like this one, and I’m reminded why I don’t use them. Firstly, no book knows what’s going on in any given dreamer’s awake life, hence the dictionary definitions of what a dream’s various elements might mean is li People come to me with their dreams, asking for interpretation.
Firstly, no book knows what’s going on in any given dreamer’s awake life, hence the dictionary definitions of what a dream’s various elements might mean is likely to be off. Thirdly, these books are laced with sexist and racist crap, making gross generalizations based on gender and negative associations based on race just look at the entry for “Lips” and you’ll get the idea.
So next time you’ve got a dream that needs interpreting, put aside your books and just talk to someone. I look at this book everytime I go to Barnes and Noble and I finally bought it. I have looked up my dreams for the last few nights and so far learned that dreaming of going to the dentist means I doubt the sincerity and honor of someone, hearing a serenade means anticipations will not fail me, cutting down a tree means I am wasting my energy maybe looking up my dreams is the waste of energy?
There is nothing in this book about a cliff. However, sustaining a fall, while being very frightened, denotes I am undergoing a great struggle but will eventually rise to honor and wealth since I didn’t sustain an injury.
10, Dreams Interpreted by Gustavus Hindman Miller
I love this book simply for the fact that dreams and the psychological translations of dreams fascinate me. However, this really isn’t a very ‘comprehensive’ interpretation book for our day. There is nothing on yelling, cliffs, or airplanes, yet there are translations on spleens, figs, yule logs, and jackdaws.
I’ve only flipped through this at times but after seeing what I’ve seen, which wasn’t much, I’ve come to the hopeful conclusion that this must be one of the poorer dream interpretation books out there. I certainly hope this isn’t the cream of the crop because if it is I’m sticking with my own conclusions.
Unless you’re trying to find hindmsn or “spiders” you’ll be out of luck interprteed that’s very childish. I wanted more in depth interpretations and I wanted to be able to delve deeper into dreams I I’ve only flipped through this at times but after seeing what I’ve seen, which wasn’t much, I’ve come to the hopeful conclusion that this must be one of the poorer dream interpretation books out there.
I wanted more in depth interpretations and I wanted to be able to delve deeper into dreams Dreajs remembered. If you’re looking for a book to actually help you interpret your dreams keep searching. If you’re looking for something to pick up and take a look through once, for no real reason, this is it. I bought this at a goth store waiting for a friend who couldn’t decide whether or not she wanted a really interesting belt she didn’t in the end.
And if I do remember them, only one in every dozen or so is disturbing or weird enough that I want to know what it means. More often than not I’m not satisfied with the answers this book gives me, but that could either be because I don’t really believe in it I bought this at a goth store waiting for a friend who couldn’t decide whether or not she wanted a really interesting belt she didn’t in the end.
More often than not I’m not satisfied with the answers this book gives me, but that could either be because I don’t really believe in it or because there are too many different themes in my dreams.
It’s entertaining though, trying to figure out interpretwd to apply an interpretation to what is currently going on in my life. Jun 16, Hunter R. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here.
Reason I read this book is not to interpret the dreams, but rather see mental connection of dreams, thoughts and how mind will solve them.
I do agree that dreams set up a mood for the day and people tend to act on their mood, but dreams do help to solve problems even in a sleeping stage. This can be even observed in interpretation of dreams: To Dream of being chased by a monster – you will suffer great misfortune. To slay a monster you will gain success in your deeds.

Study has been done that the person that has been playing ski on simulator and was failing, after sleeping person gained some percentage on it. So sleep up guys. Nov 06, Shelia Timmons rated it liked it.
I like to read dream dictionaries so I really liked this book. It has some old-fashioned interpretations, but that is why I like this book. I collect dream dictionaries, so if you do this one is a must have.
I also love all the dream quotes from the Bible. This book, and every book like it, is epic bunk. Appreciative and thankful for the attempt to list and categorize dreams. Unfortunately, many of us have dreams that cannot be found in the book. Sometimes a dream could be categories in two different areas and the interpretation is too vague or confusing to make any sense.
Perhaps, another follow-up edition is needed. Apr 14, Jodi Velazquez rated it it was amazing. If you want to have fun – get this book! After awakening and remembering your dream you can look up the true meaning of the dream and see what is really on your mind.
10,000 Dreams Interpreted: A Dictionary of Dreams
So many times I had to laugh at how my mind turned my daily problems into a comical dream. The only negative aspect is that some nights I don’t dream!
It left out sexual dreams. It was very good for compiling the different possibilities in one place saving readers the research. I admit to skipping the history part as I felt it wasn’t needed. Apr 16, Laura rated it it was amazing Recommended to Laura by: Great dream reference introduced to me by a former roomie. I miss picking it off her shelf after a night of dreaming. Time is overdue for me to get my own copy! Mar 10, Kate Zirkle rated it really liked it Shelves: Very fun reference book.
Feb 27, Mo rated it liked it Shelves: Okay, but I’ve seen better. Its a beautiful book, but I don’t find dream dictionaries that useful. I have to say that it really frustrates me when I can’t find the dream I am looking for in this book. It happens a lot.
When I do it’s good though.
