~ Dream Interpretations and Testimonials ~
From the Tarot Card readings, here are some examples of the feedback and testimonials I received:
"This reading feels very affirming and so right on, as always! I love the way you combine your spot-on intuition and knowledge of the symbolism of the cards with compassion, wisdom and common sense. I can feel all of the accumulated wisdom you've gained through your own healing and learning journey, coming through so beautifully in your readings.
"I love the reading and it seems perfect for where I'm at right now. I shall certainly seek Crow's guidance regularly. In fact, I can see me and Crow as long lost twins reunited and more empowered together." MR
"Dorothy, I loved this! It really rang true for me. I can feel changes coming, but I've been worrying about them instead of preparing for them. Such a great message to get ready for change even if you don't know what it's going to be. Thanks so much! It's absolutely time to break free and fly."
Thank you so much dear Dorothy. I never had a reading like this ... beautiful and spot on ... of course I will call on the snowy owl before going to sleep.
"I've really been feeling this for some time now...infinite possibilities and paths...but have stalled myself with doubts. I do see other paths that I know I'm going to explore as well but have been holding back there tool. Thanks again Dorothy...just wanted to let you know that it was a perfect card reading for me...just what I needed to hear."
(And she surprised me with this at the end) "I'd like to order another one for my daughter."
"Thanks so much again! I love reading your intuitive guidance!!"
"Just got my animal totem reading from Dorothy this morning and it was so full of good helpful ideas! Lots of detail, too. Thank you, Dorothy"
Testimonials from Dream Interpretations:
"THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS FANTASTIC INTERPRETATION ...
This is far beyond what I've understood ... so cool."
and then one for her husband:
"I am totally amazed by the interpretation you did for [my husband] ... I think he is rather amazed too to be seen like this, his truth, his nature...
I believe you made him speechless for a few moments.
Thank you so much dear Dorothy"
"I too can say that your help with understanding the deeper meanings of a dream of mine was so enlightening for me....You use your beautiful intuitive gift, along with your knowledge of both the symbolism of dreams and the human psyche...a powerful combination to aid in personal transformation!"
"Dreams are so personal that I have never liked the books which suggest we all see something the same way. Individualized analysis is the only way to go and Dorothy is a master of this specific way to read. If you have a recurrent dream, you haven't got the message yet. Dorothy can help illuminate that message. "

Long ago, after my daughter had her first baby, she repeatedly dreamt that there was a fire and she was trying to save her son. I suggested that it was a fear release dream and to say to herself or to her angels before falling asleep, "If this is not meant to happen, then please take it from me." The dreams stopped. This is typical of a release dream. If it had continued, we would have looked deeper but simply acknowledging the fear and asking for it be released was all that was needed this time.
I myself recently dreamt of coming in for a landing on a large plane. The landing strip was over a lake. It was in the lake, actually. As we came closer to the water, I was totally unconcerned that we were landing in water, not on dry land. The water was extremely choppy and dark gray as I looked at it. Then I heard the pilot say, "I'll just come back and try again later," and we took an upward swoop away from the water. I woke with a smile. I felt good about that dream as I knew I was being told that I was no longer allowing myself to become drawn into all the emotional drama (choppy water) going on around me, that I could just detach and come back when the waters were calmer. I could observe and not feel the need to engage in the turmoil or feel and claim others' emotions as my own or mine to resolve.
In a dream portion I interpreted for a friend, whom I'll call M, she had her mother with her in the dream but kept losing her. She wanted to share with her mother but M's mother kept wandering off other directions. I saw this symbol as a need for reconnection with her mother, that perhaps she felt they were drifting apart.
"Currently speechless, wordless, a little weepy. Spot on, esp. about my mother. I was so disappointed I couldn't see her enjoy that meal! More later, but thank you so much. Interpretation is really, really, really good and super useful to me today." - MY
"Although I am intuitive myself, my dream reading offered insight & clarity I didn't have. The reading went into detail and aspects I hadn't thought about surfaced. I felt safe revealing my dream to Dorothy. She treated the whole experience with professionalism, Thanks, Dorothy, I'll be back when another dream won't leave my thoughts."

Below is an example of an interpretation I did:
I am walking back home on my old school way, with some people I can't recognize... I look at the old fences and the different townhouses I've seen so many times when I was a child ... I look up and am totally surprised to see the mountains right behind the houses (there are no mountains where I come from) ... they are glowing beautifully golden in the sunset ... somebody says "its very rare they appear so close..." ...I want to take photographs between the houses but trees and other stuff appear and block my view ... so I leave and keep walking...I come to the end of the street to a crossroad where I usually turn left, right at the corner there is a little booth/house which I've never seen before ... I turn to enter this tiny building (it's ca 5 or 6 feet wide), I can't see any door... an elderly man exits and mumbles "This gets on my nerves!" ... I realise a cup in my hand which I naturally bring back into this building which appears to be a super modern kitchen, tiny but super clean, the entire place is perfectly built, the space perfectly used ... the tableware is beautiful, pastel colours and very modern but somehow smooth shapes ... I am completely taken aback by the beauty of this tiny little cube of a kitchen next to the pavement....
School - a place of learning, the lessons that you learn from your waking life, a "spiritual learning" experience.
Golden - To see gold in your dream symbolizes wealth, riches, natural healing, illumination and/or spirituality. It is also a symbol of love, longevity and domestic bliss.
Mountains - To see mountains in your dream may signify obstacle or alternatively, it may signify constancy over time. Mountains also denote a higher realm of consciousness, knowledge, and spiritual truth.
Sunset - To see the sunset in your dream indicates the end of a cycle or condition. It is a period of rest, contemplation and evaluation. Winding down or relaxing. The end of a phase, project, relationship, or anything that has a life cycle. Finishing or completion.
Things in the way of the view - obstacles, baggage and static.
Tiny Building on the Corner - to see a building or house in your dream represents the self or the body.
Irritated Old Man - To see something old in your dream suggests that there is something in your life that you need to replace or get rid of. The end of a phase or process. Alternatively, the dream means that there may be something in the past that you need to incorporate into your current life.
Cup -To see a cup in your dream represents love, nurturance and the womb. The cup may also signify rejuvenation and healing. Alternatively, it indicates a transcendence into a realm of higher consciousness. Is the cup half-full or half-empty? Do you see life from an optimistic or pessimistic point of view.
Modern design, clean, smooth shapes - nothing out of place, nothing extraneous
Pastels - To dream of pastel colors indicate that you are not fully recognizing and dealing with some part of your emotions. There is some ambiguity in your life.
The Written Synopsis:
As you walk through your life, you look back and around and notice where you've been and what you've learned in this school of life. You don't seem to recognize the person that you were (yourself disguised as others), for you have learned and grown so much, and the you you used to be seems to be someone else entirely. And they were someone else, you are not them anymore.
Your higher self, your inner wisdom is so very near, so close, and so bright within. Golden wisdom of healing and spirituality is at your doorstep, shown to you with your Golden Mountain. All that you love and desire is here, but there appear to be obstacles, some things still blocking a clear path to your inner wisdom, to the golden mountain, to your higher self, to your soul's wisdom. It's right there, it's always been there, and now you can see the light shining out for you to follow. "it's very rare they are so close." In other words, you are being told that most people don't get this far in their development. Congratulate yourself! And keep going!
Sunset is telling you that some part of your life is finished, over, completed. You won't have to repeat it again. What that is, you will know. And, Yay!
The small building you came upon represents your new self. The cup in your hand, how much is in it? I see it as representing rejuvenation and healing. You enter the house as a new woman.
The house is clean, modern, new and beautiful. There are smooth shapes, no nicks and dents and a fresh new start here for you. You have cleared out a lot unloving and unnecessary baggage so your inner house is pretty clean and clear right now. Parts of the decor are still being developed, as represented by the pastels,and the colors will grow more bold as you walk in your new shoes and live in this new house.
Your old self (the old guy) is disturbed by the new you and the new place and can't deal with it so he is leaving the house to you. It's time for him to vacate anyway, right? He's kind of a curmudgeon and not very fun and doesn't fit your new place.
~This was a lovely dream AJ. So much to look forward to, so much to come for you. All because you have done what you needed to do to get this far. Your soul is saying, "Look at what you have accomplished! Give yourself a pat on the back. I am so happy for you! For us! Now let's see what we can do with this new place....."
"Thank you so much again Dorothy ... I have to read [the above] again and again and again ... I just love your translation of my dream, it matches everything I feel right now in my life ... this is so helpful to see it from a different perspective, especially because I rarely remember a dream... you have no idea how much I appreciate your insight ... lots of love." - AJ
