Dreams1-2-3

July 16, 2014

My son Jason has written a book about dream interpretation called Dreams123. Analyzing the meaning of your dreams is probably not as easy as 123 but it is not as hard as one might think. The first step is to remember your dreams. He suggests keeping a journal next to your bed and upon awakening writing down what you remember. He has done a YoutTube video about the book. Check it out at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3BKfE3mB-Q. The book is available on Amazon or at his book site http://www.dreams1-2-3.com. His dream blog is www.dreams123.net.

Here is an excerpt from the book.

Step one of the Dreams 1-2-3 approach is to remember your dreams. It’s difficult for some people, so I give you tips and techniques to use and walk you through the details of keeping a dream journal. By tracking your dreams you will see patterns emerge that make them easier to understand.

Your dreams are easier to remember when you understand their structure. Fully-formed dreams have three key elements: settings, characters, and symbolism; and three narrative components: action, reaction, and resolution.

The settings of your dreams set the stage. They reveal information about the areas of life being addressed, or what a dream is about.

Characters often show you yourself reflected back. People you know can appear in your dreams to be part of stories about your relationships with them, or show you what’s going on with yourself. You can learn a lot about yourself by knowing your dream characters, especially the recurring ones.

Dreams are packed with symbolism. Dream symbolism is a language that communicates ideas and makes connections between them like a game of Charades. When you understand the language of symbolism and how it is used in dreams, you will understand your dreams in new ways as stories that accurately and poignantly describe your life.

Dreams use action to tell their stories. Action makes symbolism comes alive and reveals its personal meaning.

Your reactions in your dreams reveal how you really feel and think. They give an unvarnished look in the mirror.

Dreams also provide suggestions for resolutions. Dreams don’t just point out your issues and problems, they offer suggestions and solutions.

The point of dreams is self-improvement, so it behooves you to remember them. Dreams 1-2-3 features numerous examples of ways dreams improved the lives of the dreamers, and once you understand that your dreams have the same potential to improve your life, you will want to remember them. You will make the time to record them in a journal or diary or at a website like Reddit Dreams (opens in new window) where I am a moderator who has interpreted hundreds, maybe thousands, of dreams. It’ll come naturally with practice and desire.

Smart Grids

July 10, 2010

Even the prez agrees that our electrical grid is so outdated that maybe an upgrade is in order. How can we save energy and reduce our dependance on foreign oil etc? Well , the first thing we can do is stop wasting energy. Have you seen an office bldg with all the lights on at 3AM? Well , there is no one assigned to the task of turning the lights off !!! How simple but ???


Just thinking about soil pull-ution

July 14, 2009
Let’s call this a work in progress involving male intuition and observation
It’s about a tree dying, not even in my yard
Well, it’s more about WHY the tree died, I have a theory
Since I moved to this property 5 years ago, I noticed that the builder/developer of this wonderful platt that I live in, used the low spot between my neighbor and I to create a retention pool for construction run-off waste. I knew this of course when I built on the property. Actually the retention pool was kind of cool. We had those 3in’ green frogs everywhere. I noticed that near the intersection of the pool and the creek , there were spring woodland wildflowers like trillium and “jack in the pulpit” abound
But of course at some point, the construction stopped and the need for the retention pool ceased to exist. So, it was turned into a culvert that now empties into the creek. that is, now the storm sewer empties into the creek instead of being retained by the retention pool which was there originally to make sure the construction run-off would leach into the soil rather get dumped into the creek
So now it has leached into the soil. I guess I am lucky that I do not own that 10ft wide drainage easement where I used to enjoy all those woodland wildflowers

The 3rd anniversary

October 29, 2008

why am I doing this to myself? It’s called therapy, Write it down james, it will make you feel better. So I did it. It is what it is. If I remember right, that was the Pope’s response to the preview showing of “The Passion Of Christ” by Mel Gibson. I will not get into what I think about that movie. But I liked his (the Pope’s) response “It is, what it is”
