Book Review by Kelly Bulkeley, Ph.D.
“Justina Lasley’s new book, Wake Up! Use Your Nighttime Dreams to Make Your Daytime Dreams Come True*, reflects many of the best qualities of dream research and education fostered by the International Association for the Study of Dreams. The special contribution of this work is channeling those ideas into practical applications for ordinary people dealing with the various challenges of human life.” [*Wake Up has been re-published as Wake Up To Your Dreams] Read the article here (pdf)
In this guide to exploring and interpreting dreams, the author examines the reasons individuals fear the unconscious mind and why, instead, one should embrace the messages dreams convey.
Debut author Justina Lasley, founder of the Institute for Dream Studies, explores dreams as tools, indicators and escapes. Her self-help guide begins by deconstructing how dreams can positively affect waking life and are a way of examining the self and one’s patterns and habits; e.g., a woman’s nightmare about Nazis reveals her unconscious urges to hide, find cover and resist cancer. Once the woman recognizes that fear is holding her back, she can begin facing reality. Pleasant dreams can also alert readers to their inner desires and passions. One woman dreams about nurturing a baby boy, and she realizes that the dream is her recognition of the value of her animus, her masculinity. The author believes that examining emotions felt within the dream will lead to more clues than the actual figures and beings seen within the dream—a sensible, practicable strategy for understanding the mysterious workings of the subconscious. The book supplies many methods and ideas for deconstructing and using our own dreams, including journaling and tracking reoccurring symbols. Tackling belief systems, she argues, is crucial to this process of change. This requires examining the characters that appear in our dreams and determining which beliefs they represent, such as deficiency or abandonment. Reading more like a conversation than a guidebook, the book offers a helpful, focused primer for self-analysis.
An organized, approachable theory on dream interpretation, examination and progress through self-attention.

It looks as though Justina Lasley has done it again!

Phenomenal! Your book is not only an easy read for those of us who are not as knowledgeable about the subject, but at the same time extremely informative. I found that I can so relate to your point of “finding your voice”. Additionally, the book permits the reader to embrace the wisdom of our dreams. I never looked more forward to going to sleep and WAKING UP!!!!
