Dream Dictionary Kindle

Dream Dictionary – An A to Z Guide to Understanding Your Unconscious Mind

This has been in print now for 28 years with both editions. Its quality and content have assured it of a long life. This issue is revised and enlarged.

The pages are falling out of my copy!
From Bay Area, CA USA.
“I found this gem almost 20 years ago and my copy is worn to almost uselessness from loaning it out and my own use. Excellent for good solid guidance on dream interpretation. Rather than narrowly offering one method, Mr. Crisp educates the reader about the influences at work in the dream environment and the many angles dream interpretation can be approached from. It is then up to the reader to use their own intelligence and instincts to come to a conclusion. Mr. Crisp doesn’t claim to ‘have all the answers’ and he is generous with the knowledge he does possess. Now…where am I going to find a copy for my friend who very much wants to own a copy herself? (Mine no longer leaves the house!)”.

Be Your Own Dream Interpreter 

This colourful and delightful book has one of the best introductions to dreams and understanding them – along with How To Do It. Oh yes, it also has a full dictionary of dream symbols.


The House of the Ancestors

Tony Crisp’s true story of a passionate love affair and the death of my best friend. This is autobiographical about a twisting pattern of events that led to opening a door to meeting my dead friend, journeying with him through his experience; his introduction to a woman I would meet; and this all while he was ‘dead’. But it is more that that, because it went on to show how a dream led to the discovery of a hidden level of the mind and what was revealed.

Every 7 Years You Change

ARE you the same person now that you were fifteen years ago? In fact, are you the same person you were just seven years ago? Most of us have heard the old saying that every cell in the body is changed over a period of years; but recent investigation has uncovered facts of far more significance to us as human beings. This concerns the emotional, physical and mental changes that seem to occur in approximate seven-year intervals.

We can all see that we are different at seven than at birth. Also the change at fourteen is another huge changing point. The seven-year cycles continue throughout life, and are of the utmost importance to doctors, teachers, psychiatrists and the social sciences. Without some smattering of these changes it is difficult for anyone to understand the relationship of any given individual with his or her environment.

Mind and Movement

Using your innate power of healing and growth. The book explains my life work, and is the basis for what is now called LifeStream. It explains the principles behind much that is found in healing of mind and body, as well as past religious and sectarian methods of personal growth and discovery of the spiritual dimension of life.

It is available in the UKUSAAustralia 

A review by Hornspipe:

A truly simple process to assist your creative and healing potential. 190 pages aligned to a quiet, non convoluting course of simple standard body movements linked to awakening and opening the inner flower to its full potential. Simple soul directed therapy. Any hang up handled immediately. By using body movements and postures as doorways to our own natural healing process we release tension, find mind-body balance, dream creatively while wide awake, & tap areas of unconscious thought inaccessible.




The Hidden Bible

Here are uncovered all the ridiculous myths we have been taught, such as the demeaning of women in the Bible, and the fact that Adam is not an individual but a force in nature – and ADAM is both female and male. Here is it all explained, along with description of our status as fallen angels who are learning how to rise again through many lives. also the influence of heavenly bodies on our fate and fortunes.

We all exist in a multi-dimensional world. You have a physical body which you can hold onto with your hands; but you also experience emotions and thoughts that you cannot hold with hands. Also, your consciousness is an extraordinary dimension of personal experience that science still does not understand. You are used to experiencing these different dimensions of human experience, but there is even more.

Did you know that every time you sleep you you enter  the dimension of death?

This book is currently unavailable, pending re-print, but is readable HERE.


Eye of Dreams

The result of 40 years exploring the Infinite Dimensions of Mind – the deep places of dreams and the strange worlds they reveal. Aspects of dreaming and your inner life are explained and explored that are seldom if ever mentioned elsewhere. Because the ability to enter and explore the spiritual and psychic flowered in my life, I was able to see how life beyond life and death is explainable. So I took pains to explain this as far is possible in the three dimensional world.

Short biographies of extraordinary men and women. Each biography also includes methods you can use to develop or extend your own physical and mental senses.

We are all multi dimensional beings, existing in a physical and apparently solid world of the body. But we also daily experience the subtlety of thoughts, none of which can be held in the hand. Also we know the energy flows of emotion and inspiration, and at thrilling moments, the worlds lying beyond everyday life. The book takes you into these worlds through the lives of these extraordinary people.

A young mother wrote – The message of Super Minds is very positive. I wish such a book had been available to me in my youth. It would have made sense of a lot of what I felt at times — especially the interconnectedness of things and the sense that if we just let ourselves ‘be’ we could touch the sky. The book captures that – and I’m certain that many children and adults alike will respond to it.

It is now re-printed, and is available in the USA and UK

The New Dream Dictionary

 I finished writing a revised version of The New Dream Dictionary. It is a much fuller and comprehensive book with a wonderful and full Dream Encyclopedia included. As such I think it is a leader in its field.

But this is an even better edition. Because of the size of the book I was unable to include many important features – But now they are all given links in this version, making it a unique book about dreams.

I Ching – The Chinese Oracle

I Ching can be seen as an oracle. But not one that tells you an unchanging future but rather like a constantly shifting flux similar to the seasons, with which we can interact. What we have is like a conversation with a wise and experienced friend, who through their experience might point out that if we take our present course the results might be in a direction we do not want.

Hidden Side of Dreams

The book sets out to describe an amazing power that has been almost excluded from dream books. It takes you through the strange world of dreams and their little known processes. Below is a description of one facet of it – the waking lucid dream.

I fell into immensity, black and without features. Suddenly I was aware that something held me. It was the process that had grown me from seed in the first place. My ego had not created me or grown me. But now this deep part of me was unfolding me again, like a plant opening. I understood that we each have this force at our centre, and as I watched it working in my body and life, it seemed to communicate with me. At least I understood from it that if I opened to it each day, if I surrendered to its action, then it would grow me to a fuller life and realise itself in me. This felt like a holy gift, that the mystery of life would live in me.



An Encylopedia of Dreams the Inner Life and Human Mystery 

Here is everything I have ever written in a tiny book. This may be the biggest book written in eBooks. In one single entry it has 1,700,000 words, and there are over a thousand entries. But to manage this it is done with links – Amazing I know, it is all the magic of the Internet.

This holds everything written by myself – Tony Crisp, and includes a few other people writings also – during a long life, most of it spent in diving into the depths within others and myself. I have worked for over fifty years as a writer dealing with the inner life of people, as a therapist and teacher, and as a personal explorer of the strange worlds lying beneath everyday waking awareness.

Integration – Meeting Yourself

Integration is about truly finding parts of yourself that are missing. Someone recently told me that in a business exercise a participant felt she was schizophrenic and it troubled her. Yet the word simply means there is a split in the way we relate to life. That is quite amusing because we are all so cut off from knowing who or even what we are that we are all, according to the definition, schizophrenic.

This small book is a help in dealing with the terrible fears, anxieties, nightmares, depression and general disorder we face. Here are personal experiences of finding integration; a new look at the Chinese Ox Herding Pictures; another approach to yoga; a detailed look at drug use; and a way of loving – or finding love.

Levels of Awareness in Waking and Dreaming

There is an immense amount of obscure writing in connection with words such as spiritual, consciousness, God, and death. However, most of us come back to the fact that everyday life confronts us with the most observable experience of reality that we have. Fortunately, if we carefully examine what we experience every day, much of the mystery surrounding the words mentioned disappears. The book is an effort to clear up some of the confusion.




The main statement in the book is that energy moves in straight lines unless it meets a resistance. When contractions occur the baby’s body is pushed in a certain direction. If you imagine a line running through the baby’s body and head, then the contractions push along that line to the head. The important point made is that the head is often pressing, not into the birth canal, but into the back of the pelvis, hitting the lower spine. This line of force hitting the lower spine causes intense back pain.

The wonderful thing that Janie McCoy King shows, is how to alter that situation, so the contractions push the baby toward being born.

The cover picture is of the baby I caught as it was born. There was no screaming and the labour was only about an hour or less.



End User – An Unusual life

Part of my life story told in depth. Born prematurely prior to intensive care and antibiotics – and remembering in detail my earliest memories, it is truly a new look at our earliest experiences of  life. Then my childhood and adolescence paint even further new views of life and the wonders and tragedies that many of us face in reaching for adulthood.


Learning How to Love


After a long life of loving different partners, and failing miserable in some, I write this from long experience of mistakes I and others make. My experience also arises from having worked as a therapist for 25 years, also from the experience of working with thousands of dreams people have sent me.In all, having read through the book, I am guided by the things I have written. Love is such a wonderful, down to earth and yet spiritual subject, here are only pointers on the way.

Meetings With Christ

The meetings with Christ happened over a period of forty years. They were wonderful meetings in which I was taught and healed. As David

Boadella writes, “In this booklet, which is intensely personal, Tony Crisp writes of his encounters with the figure of Christ, in imagery, in deep feelings, in states of self-transcendence, and heightened awareness; and how these illuminated his understanding of birth, sexuality, death, and the extraordinary within the ordinary.”

Exploring Inner Space

Here are said things that everyone who is meditating or practising yoga seriously should know. Many people practice because they want peace of mind and body, but the fact is that isn’t what yoga and meditation are designed for. In fact they often find quite the opposite.

Interview with a Sex Worker

The Story of a Premature Baby

A series of articles about the experience of being born prematurely. It describes in amazing detail the memories and trauma felt and the way through it. It is an unusual and moving book, and should be read widely – although the birth took place before the use of intensive care units for such babies.

An amazing method used throughout the ages, but only just really understood through recent research. It is the story also of a young man plagued by depression and sexual problems finding a new life through allowing the process to work on him.

In searching for relief from misery he tried many different things, relaxation, yoga, meditation, fasting, and diet among them. They promised to be helpful but something was missing that I only began to uncover when I started teaching relaxation. Some of those classes he taught were huge back in the sixties and seventies. To help people he would wander around the class and lift an arm or leg of some of those lying quietly relaxed. He moved the limb to let the person have an enhanced awareness of their relaxed condition. What amazed him was that often the arm or leg was so rigid with tension it was hard to move. If he let go the limb it would remain suspended. On asking the person how they felt they would say, ‘Fine. Really relaxed.’ They didn’t know they were carrying enormous tensions.

The Sacred Tree – In Dreams and Myth

The human condition is fundamental to any creation of myths, and at the core of the emergence of any religion or personal dream. The journey from conception to maturity, and on from there to death, is a heroic one no matter which one of us makes it.

Surviving Love and Relationships

A loving relationship is one of the most sought goals. It is also one of the most difficult to attain and maintain. A major reason is that most of us fail to understand some of the fundamental aspects of what makes us love, and what might make us destroy what love we give or receive. To call most of today’s relationships loving is incorrect.

The Next Step in Evolution

Enlightenment is a process of personal growth that is possible for many today. Just as humans started their journey as an animal with no speech and no rational mind, and moved on into what we know today as self awareness; so we are ready to take another step in our evolution. This is called Enlightenment or Cosmic Consciousness, and is a growth in awareness as far ahead of self consciousness as self consciousness is of primal animal consciousness.

Face to Face with the Future

This is a book about the enormous changes the future faces us with, and what we can find in ourselves to deal with what comes. It describes how to access your innate creativity, and the many dimensions of your ability to survive and realise what it is you have been denying in yourself. One of its chapters deal with moving through and beyond the difficulties of love and relationship.

Do You Dream

Originally published in 1971, it was one of the first books to deal with a personal approach to dreams in a meaningful and non clinical manner. It was also among the firsts to include a dream dictionary that was not about good and bad luck, and the ridiculous statements found in the books still published purporting to be about dream meanings. There was an attempt to base the dictionary on research into what people actually met when they explored their dreams.

Early in my own exploration of the inner world lying beneath everyday experience, I stumbled upon a rich vein of information about the spiritual journey hidden in the symbols of the New Testament. In a somewhat prose style the book explores this hidden and spiritual teaching at the roots of early Christianity.

Relax With Yoga

First published in 1970 to meet the needs of the enormous number of yoga students starting the practice at that time. It is still relevant to yoga today as it deals with the main branches of yoga in a practical and inspirational way, including an awareness of body, soul and spirit. There are also short biographies of some of the great yogis of east and west, along with their teachings.

This is the Time of the Quickening

Many of you have been waiting for this since you were children. All that time there has lived within you an empty place that has not been filled by the pastimes that life has offered. Nor has it been given light by the words emerging from temples and churches. For it was not for those you were born or waiting, and the sense of that empty place never left you, and only scraps of knowing arose.

Using Your Intuition

Many people do not believe they have a part of their mind that can give fantastic help with problems and questions. Here is a careful examination of intuition, its many ways of expressing and using it.

Core Experience

As human beings we have investigated and probed the core process to the point where we understand some of the ways in which it works, and some of the ways in which we can co-operate with it or interfere with it. Nevertheless that Core still remains largely a mystery. In fact with the development of the new investigations of physics, such as quantum mechanics, the mystery deepens.

The Chakras

Understanding this subtle energy and the personal misery we can create with it if we do not understand how it works. This is fundamental to a satisfying life. It is important to teach children and adults how to how to deal with their own being. Here it is explained simply in such chapters as Energy Sex and Dreams.

Dreaming AboutDeath

A collection of features looking at death. Chapters include dreams of death; near death experiences; can we prepare for death; is there life after death; and mass of information about peoples experience of death and dying.


In a major experience of synchronicity there are usually no visible links between the event and your environment. But there are clues if you look beyond logical thought. Therefore a radical coincidence is a doorway for your mind and heart to move beyond limiting attitudes and beliefs. The chapters will bring the inexplicable closer to you, so you can look at it, hold it, wonder at it.


Liberating The Body

Practical techniques to access your latent healing, intuition and wider awareness.

Hello, Tony, I’ve been using your 1990 edition of your “The New Dream Dictionary” since 1994! Bought it second hand while living in Germany and it has served me well. Do you have an eBook version or an APP for iPhone or iPad? I really like this resource for doing my inner work. Thanks! V

-Edy Nathan 2017-07-17 20:56:33

Hi Tony!
My name is Edy Nathan and your passion for what can and cannot be completely explained in our lives is truly intoxicating.

I am finishing a book about grief, loss and trauma. As a psychotherapist in NYC, I find that this conversation only seems to occur when someone has lost a loved one or has had a major traumatic event. This book attempts to bring the reader into the discovery of the self while they are meeting their trauma and their losses head on.

There is a quote of yours that I would like to use in my discussion of the Father archetype, and in the book this is the quote in context of what is written:

This archetype is not necessarily about parenthood, it includes the sense of a fatherland: The collective of all fatherlands and their survival or demise. Tony Crisp writes: “…although it involves your parents, it is much wider than that. ..It also includes how you relate to your own life purpose.” If you think of some great figurehead, such as a president, who creates a sense of safety for the greater good, then you have met one of the proactive and collective aspects of this archetype.
In coping with loss and trauma, this archetype influences how you soothe yourself, how hard you are on the self, if you are astute in working through your pain, or disrespect your needs through the personal journey.

I appreciate your consideration in allowing me to use this quote. Please tell me how you would like to be cited.

Many thanks and blessings,
Edy Nathan
