Dreams




 I had a presentation in English Class - About Dreams. So I found this information very interesting and wanted to share it with all of you. 

 Dream is a word used to describe the subconscious experience of a sequence of images, sounds, ideas, emotions, or other sensations usually during sleep There is no neurologically agreed upon, biological definition for dreaming

Every person on earth dreams pretty much every night, and evidence suggests that all mammals dream also. It follows then that something extremely important must be going on while we sleep and dream, yet in the industrialized world, the majority of people pay little attention to dreams, lucid dreams and dream interpretation, and sometimes even shortchange themselves on sleep because it is perceived as lost time, or at best unproductive.

         But there is a lot that is unknown about dreams and the purpose of dreams is interpreted in many different ways

   What is the purpose of dreams? Do we need to dream? Are dreams an interaction between your subconscious and conscious?  
¨        Lucid dreaming occurs when dreamers realize that they are dreaming
¨ 



The dreamers are sometimes capable of changing their dream environment and controlling various aspects of their dream. 
¨The dream environment is often much more 
realistic in a lucid dream, and the senses
 heightened
¨

           The realization is usually triggered by the dreamer noticing some impossible or unlikely occurrence in the dream

        ¨Two types of lucid dreaming: dream-initiated lucid dreaming and wake-initiated lucid dreaming
         ¨Dream-initiated lucid dreaming: Starts off as a normal dream until the dreamer realizes that they’re dreaming
        ¨Wake-initiated lucid dreaming: The dreamer goes from a normal waking state directly into a dream state with no apparent lapse in consciousness
          ¨Time passage appears to be the same during lucid dreaming as when awake

Happy Valentine's Day!

  I know a lot of people who get very irritated when hearing about valentine's day and I really don't understand the reason why. It's just another day and in my mind it shouldn't be the day when you feel obligated to give attention to your loved ones. It's just another reason to spend time together and enjoy yourselves you don't love them less any other day of the year.

Love

   Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen
��


  First I want to say that this post was inspired by my lovely friend Sally, Who wrote a Similar post on her blog. ( check it out by clicking here ) She wrote about something I feel really passionate about and I think nothing can change my mind about this.

 In her post Sally talked about different religions and how all of them are connected and have something in common. That none of these religions teach us to hate but the complete opposite. They teach us to love each other ''How can one love god, If one doesn't love people around, If you cannot love people whom you can see and interact with, how can you love someone you've never seen or heard?'' 

 And there are a lot of people who judge each other for being another nation, race, or religion. and at the end of the day they go to the church say all of those words they learnt by heart without thinking and say they believe in god. the thing is they don't even realize they're doing something wrong. 

 I've read about people who changed their religion to believing in Jesus and became saint for our church. well, for me religion doesn't matter. think about it, imagine there are two people one if them is muslim but he is kind and helps and cares about people around him and a second person who is Christian but he is selfish and cares about only himself, Do you think he will get into heaven just by being a christian? All i'm trying to say is that Heaven is for everyone despite you nation and religion. 
  I don't think god loves one more than the other, that means you shouldn't too. treat everyone like they deserve to be treated. Love people. 
  recently i found these quotes and I really wanted to share them with you. These are little kids explaining what love is: 

Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday
Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.
You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it.  But if you mean it, you should say it a lot.  People forget.
When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.  You know that your name is safe in their mouth.
Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.

Calendar 2015 / Part 1






 This is a post for all of you, I think it will be useful for bloggers out there as well. I think you noticed that i have changed my style lately. now my post images make a lot more sense. That's because I discovered a new editing web site called Canva - If you have read my ' Blogging Tips ' post then you probably know how obsessed i was with Picmonkey I used to make my headers with it and I made my 'about me' widget with that as well, but then I discovered that a lot of experienced bloggers use pinterest and through it I found Canva. It's so easy to use. I really like editing pictures and making collages so I decided that I would release a Calendar every three months on this blog and it will have my favorite pictures as an inspirational board. For months from January - to - March I decided to go with the black and white theme. You can print these out or just make them your wallpaper - That's what I will do.

Here I used pictures that I enjoy seeing but of course you can change them, how you ask? 

I filmed a little tutorial on how I made this calendar, in case you need a guide. Overall this is just a really great website that i wish I discovered earlier.

A little bit of Everything / The First Post of 2015!






 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year you guys! This is the first post of 2015 and I didn't want it to be a regular beauty post, even though I am planning on doing a lot of them in the future.

 A lot of things happened in 2014. It started as usual but got a little crazy at the end. I am honestly satisfied and even more, I'm really grateful for everything I experienced. First of all I want to thank you for all the support on this blog. I wouldn't have done half of this without you. I really notice and appreciate your comments. I'm also thankful to god for all the new people I met. I can't skip this one person whose name is Lika and she has done as much for this blog to survive as I did. She's really good at drawing and you should go - follow her on weheartit by clicking her name. Overall she's just an amazing person. I'm also thankful for all of those, old friends that never left me and hopefully we'll stick together for a lot more. Also, my cousin was born - and this is probably the most important thing of last year, he  brought a lot of joy and happiness to our family. and finally I have participated in DWTS which was right on new year and it was a huge blast.

 This was a little summery on my previous year, hopefully this year will be as good or maybe even better for all of us. 2015 just started but it already surprised me. Now you are probably wondering what I am planning to do on this blog this year? more additional posts every week. I'm trying to film too so be expecting some DIY projects really soon. I know How you enjoy my playlist series so as a tradition we're gonna keep making those. Who knows maybe I'll start posting more lifestyle posts? Let's see how it goes.

   Love,
