Molecular Thoughts

Dreams are those fragments of our life which, although regular, go unnoticed and are easily forgotten in wake of reality. However, there are a few dreams, and even nightmares, which stay with you and get that rare attention. And if you gave them enough thought, you’ll be surprised at the amazing stories that can blossom from them!

Many times, our subconscious picks up various fragments of information, connects them together, wraps it up in a nice package and presents it to us in our dreams. Says dream analyst Sangeeta Krishnan, ‘When we dream, our subconscious takes control. But because the language of the subconscious mind is very different, the images we see can range from slightly odd to bizarre.’

The question often arises whether dreams are trying to communicate something or if they are simply a private movie theatre of the mind playing everything that it registers. Sangeeta said, ‘Dreams can be considered as messages sent to you from the subconscious, to guide you in certain areas of your life. Dreams also allow us to process all the inputs we had during our conscious hours.’

It is often said that dreams can be a result of even a millisecond worth of information registered in our subconscious. ‘The subconscious is highly tuned in to things that even our conscious mind might not otherwise be aware of, which sometimes gets translated into dreams,’ explains Sangeeta.

Little do we realize, that sometimes our subconscious is nudging us to write the next bestseller.

The best illustration for this is the Twilight series, whose author Stephanie Meyer had a dream about a stunning vampire trying to explain to an ordinary human girl how them being together is not safe, since he loves her and also craves her blood.

She held on to that idea, and we all know where that has gotten her today. Not only Stephanie Meyer, but there are various examples of writers using their dreams in their work. Stephen King, the master of horror, has used dreams in a lot of his stories. The famous Frankenstein is another excellent example of a dream inspired story.

If not the entire story, authors tend to use them for certain parts of their work too. Award winning author and poet, Chitra Divakaruni, said, ‘I have turned some images from dreams into poems. Sometimes I take an image and put it into a short story.’

The Boss is always Right

When you take a long time, you're slow.
When your boss takes a long time, he's thorough.

When you don't do it, you're lazy.
When your boss doesn't do it, he's too busy.

When you make a mistake, you're an idiot.
When your boss makes a mistake, he's only human.

When doing something without being told, you're overstepping your authority.
When your boss does the same thing, that's initiative.

When you take a stand, you're being bull-headed.
When your boss does it, he's being firm.

When you overlooked a rule continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Someone who lives far away, someone you haven’t heard from for a long time, could give you a surprise phone call today. You’ll be delighted and probably stay on the phone too long. You might need to run a few errands, but the weather could keep you indoors. Don’t worry about it. You’ll still have time to take care of other pressing matters. You should be feeling especially artistic right now. Be creative!

This is the day for collaboration and improved communication. Even if you prefer working alone, you will be most effective when you share the load. Teamwork and group efforts bring recognition and increased confidence. Ambition will cause some to put family or romantic concerns in second place.

Listen closely to the wind, for the answers are blowing around right in front of you today. Make contact with people you haven’t heard from in a while. You’ll find that you can be quite productive where you least expect it. Ironically, the less you plan, the more you’ll get done. Be spontaneous in your actions. Revelations will come to you like lightning.

Trust that you have all the facts you need today. You should be feeling quite good, emotionally. Use this self-confidence to make great strides in whatever you want to accomplish. Have fun letting your mind drift to a fanciful world where it can explore your imaginative proclivities. Feel free to use your strong hold on facts as a base to take off into a highly creative and intuitive realm.

A love partner may have heard some great career news today and want to take you out to celebrate. Go – no matter what you have to reschedule. Your friend is in a great mood, looks wonderful, and is feeling very passionate and sexy. If you want a night to remember, don’t let this chance pass you by. Also make sure you look your very best.

Don’t let things bother you today. Have confidence that you’re on the right track. Your strong will and erratic habits will prove quite effective on a day like today, when things seem to be floundering and indecision abounds. Take this opportunity to grab the reins where other people have dropped them. You might be on center stage. This is fine, because you know exactly what to say.

You have become quite a wanderer today! Even while working, your mind will roam from one thing to another. It’s best to focus your energy on important issues and try to work harder since it could improve your life. Stimulate your mind and feel free to join a class if your instinct is pointing in that direction. Keep a positive attitude and an unbiased mind if you really want to move forward.

You may be scheming behind the scenes to get your way. Just focusing on your own needs can be a mistake. Make sure your choices aren’t manipulative. You may be defensive and unwilling to talk about your thoughts. Focus on achieving the greatest good for all. You’re difficult to stop when you know what you want.

Sometimes your emotions overtake your rational thoughts, and you end up acting on impulse. Today you’ll find that your head and heart are aligned on significant issues, and that they’re working well together. Try not to swing the other way by becoming too rational. Your goal is to find the best working balance.
