A Stream of Dreams

By Leon Nacson

This book has become the benchmark for truly accurate dream interpretation throughout the world. More than just a monotonous listing of dream categories and their interpretations, this work presents numerous meanings behind every symbol and explains the importance of exploring the feelings and emotions that a dream leaves behind. This book differentiates itself from the typical works in its genre as it enables you to decode modern-day symbols such as mobile phones and CD/DVD players.

Leon Nacson is one the pioneers of the self-help movement in Australia. He is the bestselling author of “Interpreting Dreams A-Z” and “Dream Journal” and features in international press and television media.

This is a dream reference book like no other I have ever seen. It is well written, easy to understand and a great source of thought provoking material. It is definitely not a “one size fits all” as it entices you to not only check the meanings behind your dream but see how it made you feel, and gives many useful hints. A truly comprehensive guide and one that certainly merits the description it has been given – “Your ultimate dream decoder”.

The sleeve notes for this CD claim that ‘Edge of Dreams is more than a superb piece of music; it is a distant but deeply remembered part of yourself – a sound that is alive within you. Misty visions and floating memories are conjured up, only to give way to worlds of indescribable beauty … where you are the artist and the planner of your dreams… It must be one of the most compelling and magical recordings ever …

I found it beautiful and haunting, and perhaps if you listened to it in a darkened room, on a high-spec CD player, with all your senses open to it, it could have a very powerful effect. But who gets to do that often enough these days? However, it does work both as a meditation piece, and as a lovely background to whatever you happen to be doing. I listened to it the first time from a neutral mood, and liked it. The second time I was in a worse place, frustrated and angry with my computer, and it helped calm me down within the first couple of minutes. Subsequent listenings have confirmed that it is a lovely piece of music that I will return to time and time again, and that it is good for meditation and releasing work. I would definitely recommend it as a soothing and uplifting album for a variety of purposes.

The Morpheus Powernap audio CD is designed to both send you to sleep and then wake you up 30 minutes later – perfect for a lunch break in the workplace or at school or college or simply when you need to wind down.

The Morpheus Powernap is the perfect solution to help you de-stress before an important meeting or exam, or after a hectic day at the office. With powernap you will wake up totally refreshed and relaxed, with all of your physical senses ready to take on more of life’s many challenges and its great opportunities. You are guaranteed to feel better anyway!

I could hardly wait to try out this CD. I thought the idea of a powernap was wonderful. The CD consists of a relaxation exercise. In the background the sound of ocean waves induces a sense of relaxation, though the sound at first seemed a bit unnatural to me. The relaxation was so deep I cannot tell if I slept or not, which I find a good sign. At the end one is counted back to being fully awake. Unfortunately the counting is accompanied by a high-pitched sound that increases. This is probably done to make sure the nap ends (which can be handy) but for me it was far too loud and took away the lovely feeling of relaxation the CD had induced.

Suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome I often feel the need to nap during the day, but long naps mix up the biorhythm. Powernaps can certainly play an important part in the solution.

This CD is very different in many ways to others that I have heard claiming to help you have a ‘good night’s sleep’. Most noticable is the voice that leads you into the relaxation. Rather than the soft and dreamy type of voice usually heard on such CD’s, this man has a very matter of fact, and firm tone. With a background throughout of gentle sea shores, the technique is layered, each step taking you into a deeper state of relaxation, and although I wasn’t asleep at the end of it, I felt so peaceful it didn’t really matter. My sister, who has had sleep problems since starting the menopause, took it home to see if it would help her. She has used it for the last three nights, and has never heard the end !!!!! Hmmm, perhaps I will give it another try. . . . if I ever get it back that is.
