Robert Moss is one of my favourite authors. I love his writing style with his delightful stories from his seminars, clients, and those he meets and chats with on his travels.

In this book he tells us about dreams, coincidences and imagination.

We are given the nine powers of dreaming, the nine rules of coincidence and the seven open secrets of imagination.

Everything in life has connection with everything else. Moss dreams about Churchill and has a novel about Churchill with an Indiana Jones touch with him to read on his flight; then he sees a man at the airport dressed like Indiana Jones, and this is the person who sits beside him on the plane after switching places with someone else. The man informs him that his clothes and gear were made by Churchill´s bodyguard.

It turns out that when he was 14, Winston dreamt that one day he would lead the country and “save the capital and the empire”.

The author is extremely erudite, a former Professor of ancient history, and gives us the benefit of his vast knowledge by means of continued references to famous dreamers and dreams in history. In indigenous cultures, dreaming is about waking up – to a larger truth and a larger reality than are accessible to ordinary consciousness.

The Seneca Iroquois Indians say “The dream world is the real world”. Dreams “offer a place of encounter between humans and the more-than-humans, and they may be prophetic, revealing events that lie in the future”. Among the Iroquois, to dream is to bring yourself good luck, and a dreamer is also a shaman, a healer, and a physician.

We solve problems in our sleep. Dreams coach us for future challenges and opportunities, and warn us of future problems.

Octavian, the great-nephew of Julius Caesar, was saved from a surprise attack when lying in his tent by a friend who had dreamt of what would happen. He listened to the warning, left his tent, and was saved: shortly after, soldiers burst into the tent and “plunged their swords into his camp bed, shredding it to ribbons”.

In Spain, in the time of Philip II, a young noblewoman called Lucrecia de Léon became renowned as a vidente (seer). She dreamt of the destruction of the Spanish Armada and the death of its admiral a year before these events. In her dreams she functioned as a psychic spy, travelling to the home of Sir Francis Drake in England “to eavesdrop on the plans of Spain´s enemies”.

Moss gives us examples of dreams that saved both his own life and that of others.

Dreams diagnose possible health problems before physical symptoms are detected. Dreams give us the right prescriptions – tell us what to do.

When the author Wanda Burch was a child, her father dreamt that a prescribed tonic was poison. He took it back to the pharmacy, and it was found that there had been a mix-up and the tonic was rat poison.

This same lady, Wanda, was scheduled to have surgery to get a mole removed from her foot, which surgery she did not wish to undergo. Before sleep she asked “Why do I have to go through this? Isn´t there another way?” In a dream a hand appeared and with a pencil drew a circle around the mole, whereupon it popped off and disappeared. On awakening, she checked and the mole was gone.

Moss gifts us with several accounts of inventions and discoveries instigated by dreams.

The illustrious writer Robert Louis Stevenson was given his stories by dream Brownies, and when the bank began to plague him with requests for money, his Brownies worked overtime and provided him with many marketable stories.

Moss offers us the “Lightning Dreamwork Game” which we can play with two or more people, and also explains to us the Dream Re-entry Technique.

In a chapter about the nine rules of coincidence, we are given innumerable stories of amazing coincidences (we would probably term them “synchronicities”) that have happened both to the author himself and his clients and contacts.

And this book contains much, much more!

I don´t think I could name a more fascinating story-teller than Robert Moss, and this book is a prime example of his talents.

I highly recommend that you read this book if you are at all interested in dreams, “coincidences” or imagination! ( )

I first saw mention of this book in a catalog that I was only half-heartedly flipping through. Something about it just kind of caught my eye, and in reading the promotional description, I knew it was one of those books I needed to get my hands on as soon as possible. "The Three 'Only' Things" is a book about paying attention to that exact kind of thing, to noting what seems to jump out at you and to acting on your instincts. This is a book reminding us of the wisdom available when we pay attention to our dreams, coincidences and imagination, things we are often all too ready to dismiss as "only" nonsense. It really doesn't matter if you think these are messages from some divine source, or at best signals from our own consciousness. There is a rhyme to life and there is a lot to be learned just by being aware of the rhythms around us. Whether you're a skeptic or someone already working with these "only" things, this book is filled with opportunities to stretch your mind and motivate yourself toward making the most of what you have available as well as what you could have if you only knew how to reach for it. This really is a book about playing a better game. ( )
