She educates readers on understanding the language of dreams, including the meaning of dream settings, colors, numbers, animals, dream themes, emotions, archetypes and so much more. The book sites multiple examples that reflect on the challenges we all often face in everyday life such, as relationships, careers, finances, health and personal development.
