The Stuff of Dreams—and What They Mean


Through Gates of Horn and Ivory

Photo representing dream by Andrew Beebe.Chances are that you may have had a strange dream and wondered what it meant. The ancient Greeks even spoke of dreams as passing through two kinds of gates—ivory gates for “false” dreams and horn gates for “true” dreams that would come to pass. One way to analyze your dreams is to keep a journal or use an app to record what you remember from your dream as soon as you wake. You can then try these books to help you figure out the meanings behind your dreams.
