Growing in Age, But Not in Love…

3 Comments

 .

I am twenty-five. And the majority of my friends have begun the process of love and marriage… of happiness. Many of them have already had two kids, even three.

.

I… have not.

.

As the years of my life go by, I wonder why I have not experienced such joy… Why I am downhill towards my thirties and have not met the man with whom I will have my children. At the rate which I have seen around me, I’m running behind if I am in my late twenties. It seems that everybody is procreating.

In finding a permanent lover, I suppose that my bar is set a little high. I have had plenty of opportunities… but after feeling it out, potential of “the one” wasn’t in any of them. And so I choose (repeatedly) not to explore the option from the beginning… Are my standards too high? Does the “man of my dreams” even exist…? As the years of my life go by, I wonder if I am becoming a squandered old maid, as my father has assumed…

Fortunately, I inherited physical beauty through my family line. … (SEE MORE)

How to Remember Your Dreams…

Leave a comment

“I didn’t have a dream last night.”

.

Have you ever said this? Well… it’s not true.

Dreaming occurs during our rapid eye movement (REM) cycle of sleep and, based on an eight hour night of rest, the average person will cycle through REM between four and five times. With each REM cycle lasting approximately 20 minutes, we will experience 100(+) minutes of “dream” time per night!  So, you may have heard it said before: we dream every single night. No matter if we remember our dreams or not? Well, that is the truth. During our sleep, a dream will last anywhere between 30 seconds and 45 minutes. And the dream world we enter into is exciting and adventurous…

if we can actually remember our visit when we awake from it…

.

To remember your dreams, try these mental techniques just before bed:

.

1)       If you’re having trouble recalling your dreams in the morning, awareness is your first step. Having the desire to remember your dreams, and looking into methods that help you do so, will aid in your recollection of dreams.

2)      Hold yourself to a regular sleep schedule. It is important that you lay your body to rest and awake from it around the same times every day. Then your body will know when to expect a solid night’s rest.

3)      As you lay in bed, clear your mind of everything rattling within it. The stresses of the day, the worries of tomorrow, and the anxieties of your discomfort… Forget it all. When your head hits that comfortable pillow, focus on clearing your mind entirely.

4)    … (SEE MORE)

Website Under Construction

1 Comment

.

If you’ve been viewing my website, please excuse all the loose-ended pages, etc. In March, the setting for my site mysteriously switched from “private” to “public” (obviously a kick from The Universe to get a move on it)… I figured that since it is mostly done, I might as well start publicizing my website and SHOUTING my goal to the world.

So, to sum it up: The website is under construction.

But still explore its content because there is much to see!

Mind Power via Dreams

Leave a comment

I had a pretty crazy dream last night. It seemed that many people and commodities of my past came back into my realm of awareness. I’m talking about things and people that I have not thought about in years… and yet, they were exactly as they were. Specifically, I was at my old house (where I lived with my father and siblings) and it was during my early high school years… For whatever reason, my friend was folding and hanging my clothing onto hangers. He was handling shirts and sweatshirts that I owned nearly A DECADE ago! The patterns and materials were exact, as if I had seen these articles yesterday. I woke up this morning realizing that everything is still logged in the cabinets of my mind. Everything we have ever seen, felt, smelled, owned, learned… is still within our reach. I’ve heard it said that if you sat in a room for long enough (probably days) thinking about all of the people in your second grade class, you could eventually recall the names (forename and surname) of every one of them. It may seem difficult to recollect, but the information is stored in the depths of our brain, still there for us to access. While we dream at night, we enter into a stream of consciousness that represents everything we have ever experienced. These scenarios can influence the direction of our dream, and we may be reintroduced to our pasts (just as I was last night). We only use a small portion of our brain at a time, and we may underestimate the skills of our mind, but our bank of memory can store more information than we could possibly fathom. It was interesting to awake with a more clear understanding of the power of my brain. I could see the colors and stitch work of clothing that I would have, otherwise, never recalled owning!

Dreams are great fun, aren’t they?

Commands of the Georgia Guidestones

Leave a comment

^^^ You want to watch this documentary short on the Georgia Guidestones ^^^

The Georgia Guidestones were erected in Elbert County, Georgia (roughly 70 miles outside of Atlanta) in 1979, funded by a man with the pseudonym of “R.C. Christian.”
The megalithic monument has 10 commandments inscribed in stone, instructing the survivors of an apocalyptic scenario how to rebuild a better world. The messages are written in the 8 most popular modern languages, and there is a shorter inscription at the top of the structure that is written in the four ancient languages of Sanskrit, Babylonian, Greek, and Egyptian Hieroglyphs. In addition, the stones are astronomically aligned with the sky to view the sun and moon of the equinoxes and to locate the North Star.

.

COMMANDS OF THE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES

  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
  3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
  4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

How Do You Hear / Who Do You See?

Leave a comment

I hate when people talk over each other. Like the louder they speak, they better chance they’ll be heard. It is [to mention first] harder than hell to hear both of you vocalizing at the same time, and talking louder really does not help. It shows that a person is too impatient to wait for their peer to finish speaking, and instead feels that they have something more important to say. It shows clearly that they are not digesting what the other person is saying, because they have recalled a story about their own lives that is just as relevant. Why must we always be thinking of ourselves? What makes us more  important that we must be heard over the others? In most cases, we can take a lesson away from the things that other people talk about. It is good to practice being open-minded and accepting  of what the universe is presenting to you, and to not always be thinking of our own situations and “developments.” Let us (please) not talk over someone who is talking, or telling us a story. Out of respect, let them finish what they’ve thought to say… We are not as important as we think we are. Realize this. Our stories/complaints/views matter no more than anyone else’s. And the bottom line of this tangent: listen to what other people are telling you. For all you know, it could be the words you need to hear for a better understanding of something in your own life. And besides, how can we learn anything if all that we choose to see is ourselves?
