The Mystery of Dreams by Isabel Kroemer (Guest Post)

“The Mystery of Dreams – Your Dreams Decoded”

Ever dreamed of falling, being chased or being naked? Scientists believe that paying attention to your dreams can actually improve your life. They said that dreams are a person’s unconscious assessment of their real-life situations. More so, you can use dreams to your advantage.
Dreams start when a person is in the REM stage of sleep. Experts say that this is the stage where emotions meet memories. This explains why we sometimes wake up crying or laughing. The brain also mixes our memories in very unusual ways resulting to really weird dreams.


#1 The ‘I’m-being-chased’ dream
Do you often run away or hide in your dreams? Psychotherapists explain that the entity chasing you may represent your own unresolved feelings of anger, jealousy, fear or even stress. Oftentimes, these issues can enter your dreams and manifest as a frightening attacker or pursuer.

The best way to stop recurring dreams of being chased is to take a good look of who or what is chasing you. Figure out the thing you’re most afraid of before it becomes a nightmare. So unless it’s Freddy Krueger, stop running.

#2 The ‘I’m-falling’ dream
Falling in a dream is a common theme. Experts say that falling may indicate insecurities, anxieties, and uncontrollable situations. It’s your subconscious telling you that your life is moving in the wrong direction. It may be your job, finances, relationship or something else.

There’s also a scientific explanation that says ‘falling dreams’ signal the first stage of sleep. This stage is often accompanied by sudden muscle spasms which explain why we wake up from a ‘falling dream’ with a body twitch or jerk.

#3 The ‘snakes-are-everywhere’ dream
Snakes are the most widely interpreted symbols in dreams which often vary according to culture. According to Freud’s theory, snakes symbolise an unconscious sexual desire or a male figure. For Christian cultures, snakes may mean temptation or opposition against your goal.

Furthermore, psychotherapists offer a simpler explanation. If the dreamer is afraid of snakes in his waking life, it indicates a need to overcome his phobia. That’s why Hypnotherapy SA is the best way to rid of snake dreams – by gaining access to your subconscious.

#4 The ‘swimming-in-the-water’ dream
Ever dreamed of swimming in a body of water with nowhere to go? It may be a sign that you’re seeking for emotional support. The water may also reflect your own emotions. Murky or dark water announces failures and depression. Clear water means undergoing a cleansing process.

Astrological interpretations also connect swimming with employment and knowledge. Swimming inside the house indicates working for a ruthless or unjust employer. If a man of knowledge sees himself swimming, it means he will attain his goals.

#5 The ‘I’m-a- famous-celebrity’ dream
Evolutionary psychologists say that it’s not strange to dream about celebrities. During a dream state, our brain can’t distinguish between people we ‘actually’ know and those we just see or hear a lot. In other words, your college friend may turn into a celebrity figure in your dreams.

For psychotherapists, dreaming of celebrities could mean that the dreamer longs for a higher social status. This reflects that the one dreaming has low self-esteem. In this case, Hypnotherapy Adelaide is the best option to boost confidence through the subconscious mind.

Hollywood Legends : Iconic Female Celebrities: Marilyn Monroe (1926 - 1962) (Guest Post)

Today, Marilyn Monroe would be 90 years old, but the diva passed away in 1962. Many people know her celebrity persona, and she still is viewed as an icon of beauty and femininity. But let’s take a look at her off screen personality. Here are seven (7) biographical facts. 

   

This marvelous timeline of photographs ~ "A picture of Marilyn for every year she was alive, 1926-1962." ~ was shared on Google Plus by Divine Riggio : Vintage Photographies of Human Life 







1. Marilyn Monroe was born June 1, 1926, Los Angeles, California.



2. Ms. Monroe feared that viewers would think of her as about a "frivolous fool", so she studied and rehearsed earnestly at various acting studios.



3. Despite the fact that Marilyn Monroe is considered a sex symbol, she confessed in her diaries: "I was always very physically clamped. I have always been sure that something is wrong with me."

4. Marilyn Monroe loved to read. More than 400 books were in her personal library. She did not finish high school and felt the need to continue her education on her own, not only to quench her thirst for knowledge but in order to be on par with others who were blessed to complete a formal education program.








5. Before becoming a famous actress, she worked at an aircraft factory, during the World War II. Her job was crucial, She was checked the serviceability of parachutes. One of the photographers, who was looking for "fresh faces" noticed her there. The rest, as they say, is history.



6. Marilyn Monroe ate very little and could spend an entire day drinking only orange juice. Yet she has never been skinny, according to today's “perfect size” standards (say size 5 by comparison to today's slim petite almost emaciated models who wear a size 2).







7. In order to become the wife of her third husband, Marilyn Monroe converted to Judaism. She was fond of Arthur Miller and trust him a lot. It was his betrayal that completely undermined her faith in people.



Over half a century later, Marilyn Monroe is still revered as a Hollywood legend, an ideal American beauty / diva. Her popularity has not dwindled. It is a pity that her life ended up so early or to quote another diva, Sir Elton John, she was like a “candle in the wind”.

Blogjob.com - Can First Impressions Be Trusted? (Post Update)

Link below is to my post dated a year ago (September 21, 2015) and although my impression of the BlogJob blogging community is still good, one thing reported in the 2015 post has changed.  The Rewards and Points program was discontinued.  Other than that, it's all good!




After the announcement was made by the site owners that the cash incentive program was discontinued, many members left the site but a few remained. For me, it was a good decision to keep my blog up and running, for all the reasons listed in the previous post. Instead of moving my blog and republishing elsewhere, the name was changed from "Cmoneyspinner Keeps on Blogging" to "My Pain, Your Gain"; and the blog was expanded by adding pages listed below.

True Cost of Funding Your Education via Student Loans (Guest Post)

Many small business owners learned what they know about running a business and having a successful business from just trial and error. Others have been fortunate enough to be able to go to school for a degree in business and have learned from seasoned business vets just exactly how to have a thriving and successful company.


As the economic landscape at the moment promotes small business growth, many newly graduated business students are finding that sometimes to really get your career going you need to branch out on your own. However, just as investing in your own company can be risky going to school to get a degree in business can be risky as well. With colleges increasing their tuition every year it can be difficult for students to be able to fund their education on just grants or scholarships alone. Many students take on a part-time job while in school but many find it difficult to balance both school and work successfully. Thus more and more students are looking to student loans to help fund their education. In 2012, the average college graduate had about $26,000 in student loan debt and that is just the number for those that pursued a Bachelor’s Degree.

Furthering your education can be a costly investment but it can also reap in many benefits as more and more companies require applicants to at least have a Bachelor’s degree. College graduates also still earn significantly more than those without a degree. Although there are many benefits to a college degree, students should also look at what they might face after graduation, large amounts of student loans.

The infographic below by Consolidated Credit tracks the history of student loan debt in the last 60 years and gives you a little more insight into what a college degree can really cost you.

Scota: Mother of the Scottish People | Ancient History Encyclopedia (REBLOG)

English: The Stone of Destiny. Replica, origin...

History is a topic that almost anybody can write about, if they know what they're talking about, and make it extremely interesting and informative for other people (like me) who have no knowledge of the facts whatsoever.

One of the blogs I like or follow is The Freelance History Writer, published by history lover, Ms. Susan Abernethy.  She started out writing about women's history and then decided to diversify.

Ms. Abernathy's love for this subject was recognized and appreciated by a reputable non-profit organization, and she was asked to write a guest post for them. She holds the honor of being the first guest blogger for Ancient History Encyclopedia. The title of her guest post is Scota: Mother of the Scottish People.  At her own blog this post was tagged “DNA analysis”. Do you know who discovered that DNA could be categorized into 7 basic groups?  What do you know "Lia Fail"?  

This historical adventure really took me places.
Thanks Ms. Abernathy!  :)
