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.’

Your Fortune For Today
Sunday, September 21st, 2014

You might find yourself sidestepping in order to avoid a commitment today. Don’t keep giving someone the runaround. Be strong and let people know your thoughts even if you think their feelings will be hurt. Your job is to protect your emotions. Other people can handle their own. Be aggressive if you have to be. Your own sanity depends on you being true to yourself.

A friend who lives far away might call or email you today. Your friend may be planning to visit your area and want to get together with you. This should make you very happy, although at first you may worry that job responsibilities will interfere. You can work around it. Mark the date of your friend’s arrival on your calendar and look forward to it. Enjoy your day!

Group activities or social events in your neighborhood could put you in touch with new and exciting people who eventually become friends. Shared goals and interests could give rise to plans for ambitious projects. Whatever enterprises you start today are likely to prove successful if everyone involved pitches in. This evening, enjoy quiet time with your partner.

Today, fortune is smiling upon you. Anything that you were scared to do, you must do it now since lady luck seems to be on your side. So go ahead and welcome every challenge with open arms!

Love is in the air today as cupid has his arrow aimed at you! Single people are likely to meet their soul mate today while couples can definitely expect a new fire in their relationships. So take a day off work and look around…you may meet your ‘the one’!

Network as much as possible with people you like. The contacts you establish now can be a foundation for a better life in the months ahead. The best plan you make will be a mix of visionary and practical elements. Avoid moving too quickly or spending more than you have.

Decisions you make about your money today can have long-term impact. This is a lucky day to set investing and savings goals. Do the math. One small step like saving two dollars a day will give you a more secure retirement. Protect what you have and don’t neglect needed repairs.

It’s important for you to be extra cautious today. Make sure you’re calm and collected before you get behind the wheel of a car. Be sure to have a helmet on if you’re riding your bike. Strong emotions that come up at this time are apt to trigger a physical response that could be quite powerful and even a bit violent. Be careful of such tendencies.

The approaching arrival of visitors, perhaps in relation to a group activity or social event you’re hosting, could necessitate a last-minute cleanup and perhaps even a little redecorating. More than one person is likely to come to your door today, and all who visit are likely to bring interesting news and useful information. By day’s end your energy and enthusiasm should be much higher than they were in the morning.
