Have you ever had a dream you couldn’t stop thinking about?

Have you ever had a dream that you couldn’t stop thinking about? Do you ever wake up and wish you could write it down, go back to sleep and forget half the details?
Have you ever obsessed over what a dream could be telling you but you couldn’t quite figure it out, then you go to the websites and none of the meanings really seemed just quite right? You couldn’t figure out exactly what details you needed to look up and half the details you needed were missing?

 

I have been studying dream interpretation for over 20 years and I have had so many dreams that I couldn’t place at the time. They had details not listed on the major websites and I just couldn’t get things perfect, so I am in the middle of writing a dream guide. In the guide, I am going into detail how I personally interpret my, my friends and family and customers’ dreams. I have also already published the journal/workbook. There is space to record 35 dreams as well as guided topics with some common theme interpretations.

The workbook is only 10.00 and I can easily be reached on here in the contact area, or on my Etsy.

Dream journal 3

 

In this workbook, there is a brief introduction to dreams, basics of dream interpretation as well as the definitions of the most common themes.

There is space to record around 35 dreams.

There will be a book coming out before Christmas to go as an educational resource with the book to walk through the steps with an added dream dictionary.

 

Right now, these books are only 10.00, and if you buy through here or on Etsy, it’s free shipping. They can also be ordered on Lulu.com directly.

1 week into the Whole30

I’m only feeling pangs of cravings occasionally, nothing major.

I also am not feeling hungry- at all and no longer needing to snack.

I’m noticing more energy and feeling a bit better overall.

As the days go on, I’m getting more confident that I will be able to get past this and stay on the right track. I started out eating 2-3 fruits per day, yesterday I only ate one and I’m wanting to do at least one week without fruit to make sure I kick the sugar cravings, if I haven’t already.

The Very Best of South Carolina Part 1 of 2 — Sorting Life’s Issues with Jess

While most people think of South Carolina as a gold mine for pristine beaches, there is so much that my home state has to offer from the midlands of the Columbia area to the Blue Ridge Mountains of the upstate. I have lived in both these areas for quite some time, so here are my […]

I started on day 4 of the Whole 30

I think the anxiety buildup of starting was ten times worse than actually starting.

Besides either accidentally using too much olive oil in 2 dishes last night or using bad garlic in one, it’s been smooth (I threw up pretty much everything I ate for lunch and dinner and thanks to work, had to almost combine lunch and dinner because I decided to go to bed early)

I’m barely even craving snacks or junk now and I was reading these are the worst days. I didn’t go full- Whole30 because if I attempted to quit smoking on top of the restrictive diet, I’d be setting myself up to fail. I’m even craving those less and smoking under a half pack a day.

Every time I start to feel annoyed with myself for taking on this “no desert” “diet,” I just have to remind myself it’s only a month and the benefits should be much better than giving up junk food.

 

Yesterday, I decided to keep the computer turned off and put my phone away after I got off work. I also cut my kids’ electronic time 2 hours before bed and they both went to bed on time and slept soundly- but we overslept and the alarm didn’t wake us up. (we had a HORRIBLE night the night before and none of us got much sleep)

I’m going to do that again tonight and see if it’s a repeat, I’ve been reading the book “Sleep Smarter” by Shawn Stevenson and there are so many things he suggests I’m planning on trying.

I would recommend that book to anyone who wakes up every morning exhausted and is always feeling tired. He goes into the science behind the suggestions and explains things in an easy to understand way.

I also started working out again, not too big of a difference since I would start one regime then move on to another. This time it’s a mix with HIIT and Yoga. Since I’m no longer in my 20s, I know I need to start taking things more seriously. I have logged off Facebook, not sure if this time it will be a few weeks or a few months. I kept Messenger so I could talk to people but other than that, I’m off it for a while.

Other social networks are linked to my business and I spend less time on those, so they are a nonissue, but I have been finding that Facebook is my kryptonite with getting anything at all done.
