May 2022 Blogging goals and changes

I took a break from blogging for most of the month of April and am slowly getting back into it. The days are long when you don’t work, and researching and writing gives me something to do to break up the day. I’m trying to avoid streaming movies and shows during the day, focusing on…

Dream Speak: astral travel and the fluidness of lucid dreaming

This afternoon I went down for a nap because I was feeling pretty drained. My hours have almost regulated themselves and I’m getting a good six hours of sleep most nights and am up before nine most mornings. But then by two or three in the afternoon, I need to stretch out and rest my…

Dream Speak: What’s your earliest memory?

This was a question that popped up on Reddit and as I was doing some writing today, a vision popped into my head as clear as thought it happened yesterday. When I was an infant, maybe just a year old, my mother took me and my siblings on a train ride. It could have been…

My new meds are causing some crazy anxiety dreams

It’s Tuesday morning and I’ve been awake since 7:30. The sky is dark this morning even after 9:00 am. I just finally got out of bed, got dressed and have my breakfast and a cup of coffee. Breakfast this morning is a piece of toast with half a banana, some oatmeal granola that I made…

Recurring dream themes, their meanings and relation to anxiety

A discussion popped up on Reddit last night and someone asked what a recurring theme in your dreams was and the conversation blew me away. I even commented at one point and said, “I’ve found my people!” I had no idea that some of the dreams I had often were a common theme for others….

Dream Speak: recurring nightmares and stress

I keep having this recurring themed dream where I wake up in an unfamiliar condo or apartment and it’s a complete shithole. Pardon my French. It’s a different apartment every time but similar kind of building. Much like my first apartment which was a literally shithole. Last night’s dream was no different. I woke up…

I had a dream where I couldn’t remember where I lived.

Yesterday was an awful day with PCOS pains. I won’t gross you out with details. But I spent most of the day in bed and slept. That’s all you can do on those days. I have about one or two out of the entire month. I took a pain pill last night before bed and…

Dreamspeak: why do nightmares feel so real?

I woke up this morning mid dream and cannot shake the feeling of what I experienced in the dream. It was sheer terror. It was like I was being held hostage and forced to a life of servitude in more ways than one to a group of elite cultists. I think that means I need…

Dreamspeak: Inner intuition, dreams and random thoughts

The reason I’m writing this long winded post is — the past week or so I’ve had some weird experiences. I was watching the Junos, and even though I only recognized a few names of the artists, I predicted nearly all the wins correctly. I’ve predicted how conversations are going to go online. I’ve even…

Movie Review – Doctor Sleep

Last night, I stayed up late and watched Doctor Sleep. As a teen growing up in the 80’s and 90’s, I loved reading scary books before going to sleep. It’s partially why I have so many nightmares. But I think it also is what developed my love for story writing and writing in general. I…
