Common Dreams and Its Meaning in Reality

We all see dreams every night and according to psychology studies human usually gets at the least of five dreams every night. Do not worry! You are not alone there to go back into your thinking mode and try to remember how many dreams you had last night, as I am also there along, in fact, most times I do not remember even a single dream. But yes! Most of us do get dreams.

While some might have all pleasant and cuddly dreams, few others have weird dreams which might not have any link in their awake hours and life. Dreams actually say a lot about our minds and our subconscious thoughts which we may be unaware.

The people we see in our dreams are all from our past and none from the future. Your subconscious mind remembers faces which you might have seen in passing moment and may not even know the person in real. Some dream about things that might happen in the future, but they are usually precognitive dreams as your body and your subconscious mind already might know about the changes. But these dreams definitely can change our future as many of them got a message.

Check out the list or the kind of dreams below and see if you are having any of such. If yes, do the needful if it is something that needs change. Else, enjoy life.

1. Being Chased

This is a kind of dream I can interpret well as I have my personal experience from my childhood. For many months, I had a dream night after night and always it was similar that someone was chasing me and I just kept running until I woke up and realized it was just a dream. Dreams of being chased mean that you are running from something in your life or you are trying to avoid a confrontation or trying to go away from something or from fear. The chaser can be the real life culprit, for example if you are trying to run from your mind, anger, or the fear of something, can take the form of a chaser. Find the root cause of any such issues and try finding a way to come out of those feelings to get rid of chasing dreams and have a peaceful sleep. Trust me, dreams of being chased can keep you awake for months.

2.Teeth falling out

Imagine all at a sudden your teeth falls out and there looks like a big hole in front. Whoa! That can seem very scary to see self in such a manner isn’t it? But, if you have been getting or got such a dream which may or may not be recurring, there is definitely a reason for it. Dreams of teeth falling out actually means of fear of appearance. People with insecure feelings about their appearances or fear of rejection or even if there is any feeling of being unattractive can cause dreams as if one after one of your teeth decided to abandon you.

3.Fear of flying

I know, a lot of us fear flying for real. Flying in dreams can turn out to be a nightmare. But people who fly with ease can also have dreams of fearful flying. Such dreams are maybe ignored. But they actually mean something else about your real life. Having a tough time to fly mean someone or something is stopping you in real life to reach your goals. If you are being afraid to fly in your dreams, that indicates that you are afraid to take steps and lack confidence in reaching whatever goal you have set for yourself. So dreams also do tell you to get confident and do not lose hopes.

4. Driving goes out of control

You are on a long road trip and suddenly lose control and your vehicle takes odd turns and you are about to crash, Bam! You wake up with a jolt and realize that was just a dream. For a moment, it might scare you or might even make you think why did you get such a dream. Most, usually forget dreams unless they have some lasting impression. Dreams of driving and crashing or out of control mean that you are being out of track in the journey of your life and you might already know that. The fear of being unable to find a way in real life and confusion of the future gives you losing control while driving your car in your dreams.

5. Exposed in Public Places

Well, there are certain dreams, in which all of a sudden you become nude in a public place and feel exposed and ashamed. Dreams of this kind indicate of being in a new place and exposed to behaviours and new people and other things in real life. The sudden feeling of being exposed and being watched in a new place makes you feel uncomfortable and your subconscious mind tells you exactly to get over the feeling to stop dreaming of being exposed.

The world of subconscious mind is an amazing thing and they can actually tell us many things which we might not be aware of our self. Work on your dreams, be it good or bad. Good dreams signify that you are happy while bad dreams just tells you to correct whatever is wrong in your life.

Self Motivation is the Key Strength for Women

As humans, we all need motivation to keep going on in life and do the things we are good at and we are supposed to do. But life throws us so many obstacles that there are times that we stumble along the way and sometimes can be demotivated to continue our routines, work, etc.

As aptly put by my dear friend Shalini in her previous post that little things matter in our kids life, little things matter everywhere and for everyone. (Before I go ahead with my article I like to mention that am really happy that Shalini’s Baby kicked the butt of the illness which put him in hospital for a few days and now he is healthy and cheerful). These are some of the situations that can demotivate a woman especially a mother to do things as best as she can.

It’s a blessing when we have people around us to motivate us like parents, siblings, friends, etc. But nothing can beat the skill of self-motivating. You might ask why should we? When we have a whole bunch of people around us to do that. Trust me, expecting anything from the other person when you can do it yourself is dependency and self-motivating gives you the strength, power and the feeling of being independent.

So how to motivate yourself and jump right back into your work and speed up? Here are a few pointers to help you to begin with.

1.Positive thinking or attitude

When we are demotivated, negativity creeps in and we automatically assume things with a negative approach. Stop your mind with any kind of negative thoughts and push the positive thoughts inside. Believe always that there is a way for everything and a solution for every problem. So, what may, think positive and be optimistic.

2.Knowledge is Power

Well, you lost the dance competition in the city hall for women special day? Never mind, do not get demotivated with just one occasion. Learning things and knowing about our surroundings and various things around us are one of the ways to keep us motivated. The next time you participate a dance competition after you had learned the art, will definitely bring you the joy of performing well than in the previous performance. Learn every day, know things better.

3.Set goals to follow your dreams

We all have a dream, to become ‘that’ or to be ‘this’. But, if you want the dream to become a reality, we need to set goals to achieve it. There is no point in just wishing for things and feel sad that you are incapable to reach them. When we want something in life, we need to work hard to get it.

4.Do what you like

A lot of us end up in studying what our parents wanted and do the jobs that are less interesting to us. It is you, who drive your life sailboat, and only you can decide what you want in your life, which keeps you happy. Doing things which you are not interested is a strong tool to demotivate. So figure out what you want, and go have them.

5.Reward yourself

Did a good job? Give a pat yourself and appreciate all your efforts. Recognize your own strengths, for others to notice it. Once in a while treat yourself for your good efforts and enjoy the bliss of having a good life. Believe when we place all our problems on a single plate and observe, ours will be least compared to all others in the plate. So enjoy life and reward yourself for the good deeds.

There are many other different ways to motivate self and each individual may have different methods. Find that inner you and rock the world.

Little things does matter

I was very confident, I would be able to manage my second child with ease. Believe me, it is not the same as it is with the first child. Each child is different in their own way. I realized this recently. My little one was in a hospital for a week. Doctors were unable to figure out the reason for his high fever followed by chills. It was nightmare for the both of us. For three days, various tests were done to find out the reason. The fever would not subside, in spite of tepid sponging and oral paracetamol. My husband and I had a tough time managing both kids. The elder ones’ final exams were going on and we had to stay in hospital for the sake of the little one. As they say, “There is light at the end of tunnel”…a doctor on rounds visited us one afternoon. He observed the our son was snoring. I had initially ignored as he had little cold and cough. I believed it is natural for kids to snore. He told us to get an x-ray done, as he thinks there must be an obstruction for air passage in nasal cavity. As told by him, we got an x-ray done, and to our shock, the doctor told us that his adenoids had inflammation. He immediately called for an ENT specialist. Once an ENT visited us, she examined the child and told us that his tonsils had infection and he also has adenoid inflammation.

I had ignored one major activity of my child. He would not eat anything or rather like to eat anything in the past few weeks. I somehow managed to feed him though he was reluctant to eat. It never seemed to me that he must be having any difficulty in chewing or swallowing the food. It had never happened this way with my elder one. I always take her as an example and unable to figure out the problem with my little one.

Thus, little things do matter in parenting. Everything comes by experience. I am just sharing my experience. It keeps reminding me not to ignore slight changes in the daily routine of our kids.

Every day is a learning

As a parent, everyday is a learning. I am a mother of two. Raising my first kid was easy. I had lot of help at that time, however, when it was turn of the second one, I was alone. It is just me and my husband. The only advantage we had as parents was, we were not as panicky as we were towards our first born. A small sneeze and a cough, we would rush to the doctor. Now, with the second one we are assured that it is “just a sneeze and a cough”. Each day I figure out new things about this little one. I am glad the elder one is able to help me out now. We both share the diaper changes, and taking the little one out for a stroll. Believe me it is an absolute stress buster to be with small kids. You may not have smiled the entire day, the time spent at your work or else where. The moment we look at the kids’ face, a smile is seen on your face. That is the best part of being parents. I am glad and proud to be a mom of two. Being a mother requires lot of patience, perseverance and a little bit of sacrifice, here and there. Every thing pays off once the kids are raised and we can age gracefully.
