Are You A Dream Believer?

Good morning lovely people – it’s Friday morning here in Sydney, Australia + I am sitting at my work desk, ready to start the day.

Something has caught my attention which I most certainly wanted to share with all of you.

For 3 nights straight, I have been dreaming of being on a roller coaster. Different roller coaster, different location, different people + I was scared (as I always am over roller coasters)

I am horoscope + dream believer (Sorry, if you are not!)

I googled what this means + I will insert it here below:

The symbol of the roller coaster means that you will be challenged in life, as the bumpy ride is how you will feel about a situation. How did you feel about the roller coaster? Was it big? Was you excited? Your feeling in the dream state will give you an idea of how to approach the problem. For instance, say you don’t want to ride the roller coaster because you are too frightened then this can show that you will encounter a scary situation that will worry you in real life. This is just a reflection of your feeling in the dream. To dream of enjoying the ride and having “fun” riding on the roller coaster and having this excitement is also associated to how you will feel in life soon. When you dream about a roller coaster, often there is a lot going on and your life, you are experiencing a time of flux, erratic behaviors, or simply a lot of excitement. Dreams of roller coasters can be both positive and negative.

We all have moments in life when things seems overwhelming but it is a good kind of excitement such as a new job, getting married, having a baby, entering college, or taking on a new challenge in life. When you are sitting at the front of the roller coaster, then this is a sign of taking the challenges head on and being in the excitement and submerging yourself. If you linger in the back, are nervous or decide last minute that you are not going to ride, you want to consider how you can be more assertive in your own waking life and what you are avoiding.

When you see a roller coaster in your dream you know you are in for a ride in your waking life. Where you sit on the roller coaster, this is a tale sign of how you are handling stress and intense activity or momentum in your life. Now is the time to grab life by the horns and ride it for all its worth. While you may be experiencing a high time in your life understand that the changes you are going through are for the better and you are going to come out the other side brighter, happier, and wiser. The roller coaster is a good sign if you are having the right attitude and mind set about it.

A roller coaster might be a sign that there are challenges in your life and you will have ups and downs. When you ride a roller coaster with a close friend or a partner in a dream this indicates that the issues you are going through are romantic or social. It is normal to experience lulls in relationships and things cannot be fun, fun, fun all of the time. It’s okay to need a break or a small time out in order to have time for yourself. Express your feelings openly and make plans for the future so that people around you are not feeling left out.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life…

  • Being fully aware of your life and where you are in it.
  • Allowing self to have fun or let loose.
  • Being irresponsible.
  • Overcoming your fears.

There are certain things going on at the moment in my life where I feel that the meaning of this dream makes SO SO SO much sense.

I am going through change + aswell as being challenged along the way.

I pray that these dreams are coming to me as a positive thing to motivate me to keep moving forward.

My question to you: Do you believe in dreams?

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

Self Care Challenge Day 3: Outdoors

21 Day Self Care Challenge - Day Three

Hey lovely person!

How did you sleep last night? Better hopefully, but keep it up!

Today’s task will also help with your sleep, because today I’m going to share with you one of the most simple and effective ways to reduce stress and feel better – a walk.

Yes, a walk! Easy peasy, hey?

Let’s face it, a lot of self care practices you’ll:

Already know and aren’t exactly rocket science – but that doesn’t mean you actually get out there and do them!

That’s what this challenge is all about, trying these things and testing what they feel like, and what’s best for you.

Walking is free, takes no special equipment and is great for any fitness level.

A walk in or around nature is best, but to increase its effectiveness let’s incorporate some mindfulness techniques too.

Now if you don’t know what mindfulness is (where have you BEEN – it’s everywhere!!), it’s all about being fully present in the moment, the here and now. Not going over past events, and not worrying about the future, just taking in and appreciating everything in the moment.

So on your walk, turn off your phone and use all your senses:

What do you see around you – trees, flowers, insects, people cars….

What can you hear: the sound of birds, the rustle of the wind in the trees, the sound of children playing…

Become aware of what you can feel: The sun on your face, the wind in your hair, the feel of your footsteps on the ground…

What can you smell? The flowers, the grass, the trees, the hot dog stand, a persons perfume as they pass…

Can you taste anything? Maybe the rain, or sea spray…

Become aware of your body.  Maybe you’re getting warmer, or you’re aware of your breath, your heartbeat, the feel of your feet on the ground.

We often live our lives on a ‘head’ level, thinking, reasoning, worrying.  Getting in touch with yourself, your body and your world is incredibly beneficial.

Exercise has been proven effective at raising a low mood.

Walking doesn’t have to be a solitary activity.

When you get home, don’t forget to write in your journal about the experience.

Happy walking!  And remember, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing!

Stay tuned for Day 4.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤
