I am writing a follow up to my dream book. The new book will be called “Dreams Whispered Advice.” I am including a chapter on delayed PTSD.
I have had many clients who experienced warfare or severe sexual abuse whose PTSD gets worse when their lives get better decades later. How is that possible? Their lives became better, and even optimal, yet they experience horrific vivid nightmares of the original trauma.
In the new chapter, I explain how it is all a matter of your subconscious calculating that the person finally has enough psychological reserves to process what happened. This and other insights into the “rules” guiding dream interpretation will be revealed (along with summarizing the original forty rules). See
