The A to Z April Blogging Challenge 2013   has already brought me more blog friends than I’ve met in quite some time! How is everyone doing? I’m co-hosting it on Amlokiblogs, so drop me a comment there if you have something to say about the challenge itself. On this blog, I’ll be featuring (mostly) indie-published book excerpts for all of April. I love reading, and supporting author-friends, and this is a good way to do both.

D. R.E.A.M Catchers

D. R.E.A.M Catchers

Today, for D, I give you a non-fiction book: D.R.E.A.M. Catchers by Cheryl Therrien and Susan Cooper.

Elevator Pitch: “D.R.E.A.M. Catchers” is a simple and easy to use introductory guide to interpreting your dreams. If you are looking for a quick ‘go to’ resource to look up the dream you just had, and you don’t have a lot of time, this is the manual for you.

Excerpt: Each color has its own meaning.  Colors play a role in clothing, plants, buildings, furniture, etc. Pay attention to the specific colors you see and their intensity, whether they’re bright or dull. Pale or dull colors indicate weakness or subtlety. Dark colors represent passion and intensity. Bright colors signify some kind of awareness. To make it easy, we will list each color, and its general meaning along with key words that are associated with each color.

Red – is highlighting something of importance or intensity to a subject or situation, or it may represent some form of danger.

The positive key words are: raw energy, force, vigor, intense passion, power, courage, impulsiveness, passion, something stimulating, exciting, exotic, full of life or vigor.

The negative key words are: danger, violence, aggression, blood, shame, rejection, sexual impulses and urges, or even anger.

Buy the book on Amazon and Nook.

So the next time you wake after a dream that you wish you could interpret, you know which book to turn to. This could be a keeper (on the bedside table)!

Do you believe in meanings and symbols behind dreams, and wish you knew what they were?
