Here at last is the new and redesigned website I have been promising my avid readers for some years. It is now about four years old – and thank you for all the wonderful dreams and comments you have all sent.

(Please note this site asks no fees, and posts that have any adverts or links to adverts will be deleted)

It has taken a lot of hard work with my son Leon who was the great mover behind this new site. Apart from that it is all done by me, Tony Crisp. The new site is bringing dream interpretation and the many features it holds right up to date. You will be able to search for any entry and quickly find it. Such a search will also bring up other related entries. So if your search is for dog, it will also display entries for coyote, animal and jackal, that will add to the information presented.


DreamHawk is probably the oldest dream interpretation site on the web. It started in the mid eighties on CompuServe, and later was called Waves. When I went more mainline the name changed to DreamHawk. But I was also the earliest writer on dreams who attempted a dream dictionary, one not based on rigid dream theories such as Freudian or Jungian ideas, or the made up rubbish of the dictionaries saying each dream is about good or bad luck. The earliest book I did on dreams was in Do You Dream, and was published in 1971. This included a dream dictionary.


The new DreamHawk will enable able you to post comments and develop contact with other dreamers. See Discussion Forums.

It has always been my policy to never charge for any service given, so this site and the years and hours spent producing it is purely non-commercial. I have done this because living at a time when I had no money for professional help for therapy, I found that help was here with me when  I prayed for it. I found that when two or three are gathered together in my name – the name of love – help flows from ordinary people supporting each other. Also I find that supporting the obviously sick financial structure by trying to grab as much money as possible seems ridiculous. So  I pass on that help to others. But obviously we need support, and you can give that by clicking on any adverts that interest you, and buying my books. So here are ways you can do that:

  • Link to this site from your website, Facebook.
  • Tell other people about this site
  • Visit us on Facebook .

Future Change

Something else that is coming, but will take time to complete, is a completely new and massively enlarged dream dictionary. This will be done a little at time, so the first entries will appear fairly soon. The new dictionary will have a simple statement of the main meanings of the dream image, followed by a deeper description. Then questions about the dream image will follow that if answered will lead you to your own understanding. Up to the O’s at the moment – December 2014

Meanwhile, thank you to those of you who have been loyal supporters of the site, and welcome to those who are new. Enjoy exploring the wonders of dreams and your inner life. It might be helpful to read Summing Up  or Questions

I am in a room of strangers,holding a picture of someone I don’t know and a small white dog Cry’s tears. I am told that that was the dogs owner who passed away.

    Dear Florence – Every image and person in your dreams is an expression of your own life process. As such it is alive and intelligent and is something sent to help you. A dream is like a projection from a movie projector, except that you are the projector.
    Everything you see as outside you is coming from you, your emotions, your fears, your beliefs, your joys and explorations and are all you, clothed in the dream images and drama.
    A room with strangers may be referring to the unrecognised parts of yourself, your behaviour or character, or something you fail to see or recognise as you. In a way this might even be a new growing part you haven’t met before.
    Much of our behaviour is largely or wholly unconscious. Becoming aware of something can by itself produce a change. If you are not aware of how you act or respond, there is less likelihood of satisfying change.
    See http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/self-observation/
    The stranger on the photo could be a symbol of the person you have rejected – the you that is rejected and the white dog could be “the approach” towards bringing this part back to life again.
    Crying may be the release of any type of emotion, from enormous pain to wonderful joy – they all produce tears and a white animal may be a symbol of the urges and sexuality that have been accepted or integrated with conscious activities. This means urges that at one time you were in conflict with or anxious about, and have been transformed in urges and feelings that are acceptable parts of your present life. They become available and creative energy.
    See also http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/energy-sex-and-dreams/
    I believe that “Being the dog” and/or “Talking as the dog” will help you to explore your feelings and “the approach” towards expressing this aspect of you.

    Good Luck!
    Anna :-)

I keep a dream journal because I love exploring the subconscious. I’ve also drawn things inspired by dreams. I love symbols as well, and draw them as well. Your site and thinking is rich in symbols, stories, and dream connections to the subconscious. I look forward to exploring it.

You helped me at a young age through different things… My mothers Cosmopoliton age 7/8 and dreams. Teletext! Wow I never realised it was you until just reading this… You make me smile with love and thanks. My people around me were difficult you helped me see I was not alone . As crazy as life is I found myself at an early age and learnt to accept it all. I am I. Thank you so much for being you xxxx maybe we will meet in dream land x with the horses .

    Dear, Dear Amy – Thank you so much for telling me and reminding me if those wonderful days. I used to love it when youngsters would write to me.

    I lived in Combe Martin in Devon in those days, and so I would work on the dreams and I had a helper who I sent the dreams to and she posted them up up.

    I would love to know any of the dreams you can remember and what was said to help you. I do not have a lot on children’s dreams so it would be good to see anything you feel easy about saying.

    Much love – Tony

Hi Tony,
I just want to thank you for this site, and for your very profound interpretations of the I Ching hexagrams. I’ve been reading you now for a couple of years and I see more and more how spot on your readings are.
I also enjoy all the other sections of this website – as a dream enthusiast and more.
Wishing you health and all good things!



    -Tony Crisp 2015-06-21 6:51:42

    Dear Gail – Thank you for the things you wrote – they mean a great deal to me.

    And the good wishes you sent to me I treasure and reflect back to you with blessings.

Hello Tony! I had a dream last night with a big dog and big duck. I was sitting down on the soil, in a place that I have no idea where it was. I saw a big duck running from a big dog who was trying to catch and eat the duck. I tried to scared the dog away, he was kind of afraid so he hid himself on the right side of a wall behind me but kept looking at the duck. He finally saw an opportunity, he grab the duck and swallowed it. The duck was inside of the duck but I could see his head and bic inside of the dog. The dog was trying to suffocate the duck and then I woke up. Can you tell me what you think this dream means? Thanks!

I had a dream where there were fish inside the sink, big fish, and I filled up the sink with water so I couldn’t take them out trying to catch them, so I just wiggled my fingers and the would come up and I would catch them I started to put them in those big gallons of water white fish with orange spots I got like 5 fishes. My mother in law tough she had seen the water to be black and assumed the fish were dead. She grabbed the gallon and threw it all over the living room I told her that the water wasn’t black it was the bag that was around it. She said oh well there about to die anyways. The fish were gasping for water they wee on the living room floor some on the sofa and my living room was wet. All I could do was stand there in shock.

Thank you for your website. It is wonderful. I am currently studying the Bible from a broader perspective than the orthodox upbringing I had. I really liked this book The Unknown God. However, after I read a few chapters, I went online to buy the book and 1. amazon does not have any copies for sale and says it does not know when it will be available. 2. other websites including used book cites show no results for the title search or for the author when searched. 3. It is virtually impossible to find in other websites. Do you have a copy of this book that you could send me or does the author’s daughter have a copy? I have been searching for this book for the last two months and it is impossible to find. Please help me with this matter. If you have an available copy, please email me and let me know. Even if you have a charge for the book, including the price of shipping and handling or more, I definitely need to have exposure to this type of book for studying in depth.


-Elijah 2015-08-06 0:35:50

Thanks for the wonderful website. I am still searching for The Unknown God and have had absolutely no results but I would love to read a real copy of this book and study the contents. I had no clue there was wisdom this clear out there about the Holy Bible.

I shot up to the sky like a rocket. I saw a very bright light in front of me. I forced myself to wake up because I didn’t like the speed that I was going.
When I woke up, I was laying in my bed. The bedroom was filled with greenish electromagnetic rays. I looked at my hands and it was greenish too. I think I was still dreaming because I shot up to the sky again but I was forcing myself not to fly.
