Blogging Less

Hi everyone I have not been posting a lot lately as I am currently working on a novel which is now near completion. As soon as I finish the final chapters I will give more detail about the story line. Sorry if I am late in responding to your comments and reading your post but I will try and catch up as soon as possible.

For those interested in dreams and meanings here are a few more.

The Hair

Should anyone dream that while combing the hair it be impossible to pass the comb through by reason of its entanglement, or to experience difficulty in unraveling its knots or kinks, it predicts to the dreamer complicated lawsuits or weeks of anxious toil. But to see the hair and head well combed and dressed, signifies friendship and deliverance from misfortunes.

Should you dream of having hair longer and darker than usual, riches and honor will flow to you. Should one dream of his hair becoming thin and disarranged, it is a sign of affliction and poverty.

The Nose

To dream of having the nose torpid, or stopped up so as to be dead of feeling, fore warns the dreamer of treason on the part of an intimate acquaintance, provided, he who  dreams is a person of importance. To a master or mistress of a house it announces deceit dishonesty among the servants. To an unmarried female it portends her lover’s infidelity, while to a married woman it makes known that some jealous rival will intrigue to rob her of her husband’s affections.

Childbirth

If a woman, not pregnant, dreams of giving birth to a child, it is a sign that she will consummate happily her undertakings; should the dreamer be a maiden, it signifies banquets, rejoicings, dances and nuptials, but sometimes the pains and perils of maternity.

Should you dream of seeing a woman in childbirth, it denotes joy and prosperity to the dreamer.

 WOUNDS

To dream of a person inflicting upon you wounds while in a state of anger, denotes that you will receive benefits at his hands in proportion to the vehemence of his anger and the period of its duration.

Should a woman dream of being wounded, or of wounding another in self-defense, it predicts that she will reap some public honor. Should she assail, in her dream, some man, with intent to wound him, it is a sign, should she be married, that she will give birth to a male child, who will become a soldier or sailor.
