Something important..

Falling is another thing that appears frequently in everyone’s dreams.  This symbol can represent all of your anxieties about letting go of something,  or even failing at something you have worked so hard to achieve. This relates to my next symbol that appears in our dreams frequently and that is school and exams. School is a very important part of success we need it to have opportunity’s in life. Whenever you see school in your dreams it means that you display a need to know and understand one self. I think it also represents your desires and wants in life. Exams are simple a self evaluation. What i mean by this is your mind is being examined and the results show you which part of your life is not doing as well as other aspects. The dream image of an exam can really help you understand what you need to do to grow and become better.

The last and finally symbol i would like to talk about is missing some kind of transportation. I know it sounds silly, but it really has a very deep underlying meaning just like the poem we have been talking about over this term.  Missing a ride or flight to anywhere can reveal frustrations over missing an opportunity in your life. This type of dream images show during a time that you are struggling in life over something big.

I choose these images because they relate to me at this point in my life where i am making big decisions. Everyday i am working my way through school and reaching through my school.


My future

I have been having many dreams  about my future lately. I have been keeping a journal with certain images that i can remember from my dreams. Lately my dreams have been kind of intimidating because they seem like visions more than a dream.  I feel like for the first time that i finally know exactly what i want to do.

Words like Cottage, Family, Beach, Money, and Boss are most common in my journal. I just recently changed my major to Business Management with a minor in entrepreneurship and i also just signed up for next semesters classes.  The main reason i think i have been having these dreams is because i have been very concerned about my future and what i want to do in life.  I want to own my own business one day. The cottage i see in my dreams is on the beach surrounded by many tropical flowers that i pink, purple, and yellow with many palm trees. The cottage is on a very quite beach that is secluded. I am the word family comes up because i meet many different families in this dream wonderful individuals.  They all looked like the pre made pictures that are in picture frames that are for sale. I love to meet new people. I think Money and Boss come into my dream because i was paying the bills on this cottage and collecting payments from families. The word boss comes into this because i want to be my own boss and not have to take commands from others.

I have had this dream more than one time over the past few months and i keep having the same dream/vision. The one thing i think that stands out the most is not only do i get to meet new families, but i can see my family. This business that i planned to open i want to be family orientated. I plan to pass the business down to my children. My husband and I work very hard in this dream to make sure every family has the time of there life.  During the dream i can see my husband and my children in my dream helping me clean and prepare the house for the next family i have scheduled to stay there.

This dream/vision has really opened my eyes to the possibility’s that life has to offer.

The story behind, “My Mistress”

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.

—William Shakespeare

This poem is a one of Shakespeare famous sonnet. It was written during the Elizabethan era and during this time many poets work was based on Petrarch. Petrarch was an Italian Poet that became very famous for is sonnet sequence in praise of a women he calls Laura. He was also an important idol during the rediscovery of Greek and Latin literature. During this time period many other poets wrote  in praise of a women they had come to love/court. When Shakespeare came out with this poem it was mocking this time period in literature and the other poets. It was very popular to compare nature’s elements to women to show affection. The elements that Shakespeare used in this poem were very commonly seen. He uses a new structure within this sonnet, it has a very straightforward and bold theme throughout the whole poem. There is tons of imagery and comparisons that are made throughout.

I choose this poem because i thought it was very different from Shakespeare’s  traditional sonnets, and other poems that were written during this time period.

“I could pee on this”

I Could Pee on This

Her new sweater doesn’t smell of me
I could pee on that
She’s gone out for the day and
left her laptop on the counter
I could pee on that
Her new boyfriend just pushed
my head away
I could pee on him
She’s ignoring me ignoring her
I could pee everywhere
She’s making up for it
by putting me on her lap
I could pee on this
I could pee on this

By: Francesco Marciuliano

First off i find this poem absolutely hilarious.  The first couple of times i read this poem i could really see a guy do this to his ex or roommate that he likes. But then i took another idea in my head, what if this was some kind of pet this girl had? I can see two different sides to the poem. This poem really made me chuckle because it was very different compared to other poems that we have discussed about during class that are based on human struggles  religion, love, and religion. This poem has 14 line and has a lot of repetition and imagery within this short poem. I think the speaker of this poem is some type of pet that wants all the attention and will pee on anything or act up to get attention.

My Dream/Nightmare

There are many parts of this dream that i can not remember. There was only a select few words i can remember and it was death,intimacy, baby, and people. I think this is what occurred in this dream as i put the pieces together.

When i had this dream a lot was going on in my life. There was a huge argument between my fiance and his mother in which things got very complicated and i was put in the middle of things. This dream occurred about a week after this incidence. After doing some research about death in a dream my findings were, that death represents dramatic changes occurring in the dreamers life.  It can also be a means of allowing the dreamer to escape. My fiances mother tries to be very controlling in the psychical world and tries to run our relationship. Luckily he knows this and prevents this from hurting our unbreakable bond between one another. My fiance and i have been together for four years ever since high school. We are getting married and planning our wedding so when i had this dream i woke up very upset and crying. I thought i had lost everything. During the dream she had killed me and took him away from me.

I then look up the meaning of people interactions in dreams and found specific relationships or interpersonal relationships that need to be worked through. i do not have a relationship with his mother anymore she ruined it for us.I also came across dreaming of your lover is very frequent in which is a symbolic symbol of oneself.  I had both of these happening in my dream in which  was fighting with someone and head over heels in love for the other. This also ties into the word sex, which in the dreamer world it symbolizes an  intimate connections with oneself and others. My fiance and i are very deeply in love.

One more thing that happened in this dream was a baby. My fiance and i want a baby and i think this is why it became present in my dreams. A baby represents something new like development or the potential for growth in a specific area of our waking life. I think this is something that became present in my dream because i am really passionate and looking forward to having a family in my future. The worst part about this dream is that she took my baby and my fiance away from me by killing me hoping that she could be apart of his life again.

All in all this dream was a nightmare and a dream come true, because i had married the man of my dreams and started a family. Then the nightmare struck in which i had lose everything in a blink of an eye. She had took everything away that was important to me. This dream was very scary for me in which i woke up in tears.

How strong is love?

Have you ever dreamed you could fly?

As high as the sky.

To vanish into the clouds above,

and become as elegant as a dove.

Soaring through the clouds made me feel free,

so i could believe that there was more to see.

Beyond what i had grow to know,

that he would never let go.

I saw a light in the distance that appeared above,

i knew he was my true love.

I am nothing without you,

For one day you will come save me, i know this to be true.

I will always wait for that cock, that will show me love,

for i am that dove.

Dream Images what do we really see when we are dreaming?

This is a blog post about common images that appear in our dreams that many do not realize. I did some research on them all and was shock to find these answers.

Water is something that appears in our dreams with out us knowing what the real meaning could possible be. Water is essential to our survival we need it in our lives. The most common reason why we see water in our dream is due to the fact that in the language of mind water symbolizes physical change in our level of consciousness. Water can also be represented as our emotions that are being showed in the dream. This is a test at how well we can control them. For example the water could be cloudy, completely clear, calm, rough or polluted they can all represent different aspects of one emotions over time and can be different depending on the person.

School is something that i have personally had experienced dreaming about and it was not a good dream. In my experience i had failed a test and was very upset and crying this is all i could remember. I didn’t think dreaming about class would be so common. Surprisingly it is many people dream about some part or aspect of school. It faces you with a test that you are either ready to take our not. Another way school comes into our dreams is to show use that there is a chance for growth and learning in the psychical level of consciousnesses. Dreaming of school/class can be both rewarding and/or devastating in a way.  School can signify to the dreamer its purpose in life in the language of  the mind its self.

What is the reason a house would be present in out dreams? It provides us with comfort warmth, shelter, but why be present in out dreams? A house is a house right? I never would have imagined that a house would have such an important meaning in the world of our mind. A house represent the stages that our mind goes through. There are three main divisions of the mind conscious, subconscious and super-conscious. These stages all have sub-stages that the mind must go through in order to move to the next stage. The floors of the house represent different aspects of the mind and with this provides your mind with structure in which it uses for thinking. Closets in the house will represent the dreamers own self closed off, while bedrooms will represent intimate thoughts and emotions. Often the basement will be present and this could represent depression or neglect of ones self. Sometimes images like these appear in our dreams in order to present the dreamer with things that happen in real life that they may not be aware of or do not want to be known.

I was really amazed that these such basic elements of our life that we go through everyday could  have such an important impact on our dreams. There are so many other things we dream about and don’t really understand why we are dreaming about them. Doing this research on these dream images really opened my eyes to all the possibility that a dream can have on our life.
