Awakened by a Dream…

Standard

Dream that I woke up to this morning:

I was at some function/lunch-time where I was eating all by myself. I was just observing everyone as they were. I then found myself talking to someone about how it was alright to eat alone. It was in an old factory type setting.  A bunch of women there etc…Then, I found myself running late. I was at Indiana University’s Memorial Union (which I would always get confused on the levels there and get turned around) when a gentleman pointed me to go up a flight of stairs. It was then at this point I was eating almonds climbing the stairs and I was hopping from one illuminated floating block to another. It was like I was in a video game leaping from one floating block to another and they were speeding up. As I leaped from one to another it would drop into the darkness below…then I woke up WAY past my alarm, yet I wasn’t late for work. Touche Monday, Touche!

An Analysis: http://www.dreammoods.com/

Almonds

To see or eat almonds in your dream represents success and richness. To see an almond tree in your dream signifies happiness. Wedded bliss is also in your near future.

Eating

To dream that you are eating alone signifies loss, loneliness, and depression. You may feel rejected, excluded, and cut off from social/family ties. Eating may be a replacement for companionship and provide a form of comfort. Alternatively, eating alone reflects independent needs. Also consider the pun, “what’s eating you up?” in reference to anxiety that you may be feeling.

Alone

To dream that you are alone indicates feelings of rejection. You may be feeling that no one understand you. Delay To experience a delay in your dream suggests that obstacles toward your goals are inevitable. Don’t let these setbacks discourage you.

Factory 

To dream that you are at a factory represents repetitious thinking and an old way of doing things. It is symbolic of predictability and unchanging habits. Alternatively, it signifies business, productivity, energy and bustling activity. You are a person that can get things done.

Stairs

To dream that you are walking up a flight of stairs indicate that you are achieving a higher level of understanding. You are making progress into your spiritual, emotional or material journey. The dream is also analogous to material and thoughts that are coming to the surface.

Stepping Stone

To see or walk on a stepping stone in your dream suggests that you need to take things one step at a time in order to achieve your goals. Alternatively, the dream may be showing you the steps you need to take toward your goals. Follow the dream course and see where it takes you.

Light 

To see light in your dream represents illumination, clarity, guidance, plain understanding, and insight. Light is being shed on a once cloudy situation or problem. You have found the truth to a situation or an answer to a problem. Also consider the color of the light for additional significance.

Speeding

To dream that you are speeding indicates that you are compelled and driven to complete something. As a result, you may be pushing people away. Alternatively, the dream suggests that you are moving too fast in some relationship or situation. Perhaps you need to slow down.

Hurry

To dream that you are in a hurry suggests that may be unprepared for a situation. There is a lack in your planning of things. Alternatively, to dream that you are in a hurry means that you are feeling out-of-place. This dream may also be a literal reflection of your daily life where you feel that you are always in a rush. And that there is not enough time to do all the things you want to do. The dream may occur due to this type of stress.

Rush

To dream that you are in a rush indicates that you need to better manage your time. You feel that you do not have the time to do all the things you want to do. The dream is also representative of the pressure you are putting on yourself. You feel unprepared. Perhaps, the dream is telling you to slow down.

Over all, this dream made me crack up.  Just another reminder that I need to slow down and take it one step at a time.  I am getting ahead of myself.  I am anxious to start this new chapter in my life and clearly I have a little anxiety from it…

Anyone else having any CRAZY dreams lately???

Rainbow Connection: Humor and Inspiration

Standard

Inspire.

“One person can make a difference, and everyone should try”  –John F. Kennedy.

Hearts of Inspiration...

First of all, Thanksgiving was wonderful.  Saturday’s Old Oaken Bucket game (Indiana University vs. Purdue University–sorry it’s a Midwest thing!) and enjoyed plenty of good company.  Well tonight really sums up just what a fantastic time I had because I went with a girlfriend of mine to see “The Muppets Movie”  🙂

Over the past few days, I was reminded to Inspire.  At Thanksgiving, just showing up and helping gather the food, people, and everything needed to make the show happen is the best way to be.  No one like people who just show up for food than “peace out!”  Simply playing games with the youngest members of the gathering can mean the whole world to them as a “big person” is paying them some attention.  And hugs are priceless and irreplaceable.

I am a woman who can equally perform tasks as a single or together (thank you Ms. Piggy and Amy Adams for the reminder!), I am someone with a few small gifts to offer–as everyone has SOMETHING they can contribute (thank you Walter…), life is about figuring out who you are and what you are made of (thank you Kermit for helping me never lose hope in myself), and just when you think you can’t figure it out, there are friends who are all around to help you find your way!

The Muppets single-handedly reminded me of the third best thing in the world….laughter!  What would we be without laughter?  That’s right, a bunch of serious fuddy-duds.  I said it.  Fuddy-duds.  What could be worse?  Inspiration through laughter.  What a novel idea!  Something that has far been under appreciated for years…witty, smart, dry humor.

A dear friend of mine, RL taught me a little something about humor this weekend as well when we were on our way to the Old Oaken Bucket game.  To be a stand up, you have to always be on your toes and keep your head about you.  You cannot let people catch you off guard, but play off the opportunities given to you on stage.  If you get a heckler, no need to bother.  They aren’t worth your time.  Keep the rest of the crowd engaged.  Same could go in real life situations as well.

Tonight was a final reminder my desire and purpose is to inspire people.  I am to encourage, help people discover what it is I see that they can’t see, and ultimately change people’s perceptions of themselves that they way they view their futures.  Laughter, positive reinforcements and lots of love….that is the formula.

People are too quick to give up on themselves.  They lose hope so easily!  What is that all about???  We can never ever lose hope especially not in ourselves!  For, if we do not believe we can do it, then surely no one else will.  We must stand tall on our own two feet and chose to inspire ‘I’ first then let the inspiration radiate…

So how do you inspire?  For me, it is humor and insight….but what is it for you dear friends??
