Here at last is the new and redesigned website I have been promising my avid readers for some years. It is now about six 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

Hello Tony, thank u very much for your website, I regularly go to it first thing in the mornings!

Hoping you can help. This week I had a whole mess of dreams in one night, and have done my best to ‘read’ them all, except for one which featured a wedding.

I’m not sure if telling u the order + description of the dreams is important but I’ll go ahead and do that:

First I dreamt I was looking at an old family video of the present me, carrying myself when I was a baby – both baby and adult me were joyous in each other’s company – the adult me then noticed some paintings of cats that baby-me had done, which were very talented portraits, and were skilled exercises in scale and perspective. (I took the message to be that I’ve befriended my inner child, and am listening more to my calling?)

Then I dreamt it was wartime and I was put in charge of managing the toilet paper supply (odd job I know). I was quite eager to perform the job well. (I initially wondered if it was a message about excrement + creativity, but possibly more about me better managing the messy parts of my life?)

I then dreamt I was holding an Indian baby (as in from India, possibly female?), to which I then found myself at an Indian wedding as a guest, taking part in a traditional Indian dance with one of the Indian female guests (attractive, with a cool expression, not sure if that detail is important?). I understood from the dream that the female guest was quite reserved, but when we danced, it was quite an erotic dance, as my fingers would be touching her bare waists turning her around when the step called for it. (No idea what this section of the dream could mean… )

The final part of the dreaming, I was going to watch a movie at a community cinema. Once in my seat, a writer friend next to me said, ‘you’d better go get it’ – or something or rather. So I got up to leave, and upon leaving I saw my father out front, working as a volunteer, handing out flyers for the show that evening. He seemed quite happy and proud. I was trying to run back as fast as I could to wherever it was, but was met with a lot of invisible resistance in the running. I was then met with a series of hurdles (upright frames), to which I first tried to run around them, but as I progressed the hurdles drew in tighter and were lower, which I ended up trying to crouch under to pass them, forcing me to further slow down. (I took this to be a message about patience?)

I should say, I don’t usually dream this way…
