Are Dreams a Form of ESP?

Downtown Kingston

Some people might scoff at the mention of ESP and explain that anything related to it is merely coincidental, yet how many of you have had dreams and see the things you dreamed about unfolding in real life?  I for one dream a lot and yes sometimes these dreams happen.

Some dreams are messages to warm and guide us and if we understand them it can actually save us from harm. I will share with you some of my own experiences. One night I dreamed that my slippers was full of ants, this was a slipper that I normally slip into the moment I get home from work. The following day I got home from work kicked off my shoes reached for the slippers and there it was full of ants. I laughed showed it to my daughter and said “look even the stupid things that I dream happen.” So it was just a silly dream and it happened no big deal…no! this was preparing me for something more serious that was about to happen.

The following day I was planning to go into Kingston to do some shopping. For those of you who do not know, Kingston is Jamaica’s capital; it is also unfortunately one of the crime hub of the country. I was living in Port Antonio which at the time was almost crime free. That night I dreamed I could not find any shoes to wear, each time I put on a pair of shoes it would fall a part and for the entire night shoes after shoes just fell apart the moment I put them on.

I left for Kingston the next morning as planned but I was full of misgivings. I knew something was going to happen, I just didn’t know what. I prayed all the way that we would not have an accident. Arriving safely in Kingston I went about my shopping on high alert, very cautious, looking to spot trouble around every corner. I was tense the whole time. Nothing happened, I carried out my shopping without incident. Finishing my shopping for the day I slipped my handbag ( which I might add – I don’t normally carry) into one of my shopping bags and zipped it up. I was ready to go home I could relax and breathe easy. I figured if anything was going to happen it would have happened already. I was wrong. On my way to the bus stop a woman was selling clips on the side-walk. I stooped picked up a pack and reached inside the bag for my handbag to get the money to pay her. My hand came up empty, the handbag was gone I had been robbed!  My keys were gone, my purse with the money in it was gone but strangely I felt a sense of relief because I finally knew what was meant to happen.  The stuff that was gone did not matter because I still had my life.  Many people had died trying to defend what was theirs so I considered myself lucky.

Dreams sometimes come to guide us and prepare us for the unexpected. Have any of you had any such experience?

Candy Crush V Swagbucks

My dear sweet Candy Crush You know I love you so
We have spent so much time together,
It pains my heart that I have to let you know,
I have found a new best friend,
Swagbucks is his name.
I love crushing candies but Swagbucks has got me hooked,
Swagbuck pays me to watch videos, take surveys and search,
These activities put more money in my purse.
Candy I am not a gold digger but who couldn’t use the extra cash?
I wont totally forget you, I will see you from time to time,
But I will be spending most of my time with Swagbucks,
My new best friend!

Mother at Sixteen

 

She was looking lost and forlorn,
Her frail body slouching forward,
holding tightly at the young child in her arms.
The baby was crying, she attempted to feed him,
but from the white cracks on her lips,
and her sunken eyes, you couldn’t help but wonder,
if she wasn’t hungry too.

She looked around anxiously,
as if expecting someone,
The shadows of evening are lengthening,
and she is all alone at the train station,
She is alone with her baby and a bag by her feet,
which holds all her earthly possessions.

Her mother’s harsh words still echoed in her ears,
‘Go find you baby father, find the man who breed you,
I can’t afford to take care a you and no baby!”
He said he would come, he said he would meet her here.
That was two days ago.
And here she was, still alone at the train station,
Just sixteen years old,
Alone and scared, with nowhere to go!

First I want to say thank you to all of you who have been following my blogs, taking the time out to read my post and for your comments.  I would like you to know that I really do appreciate it.  

For the next couple of posts my focus will be on parenting and I would appreciate your thoughts on the subject.

Parenting

How many of us can say we are great parents?  Well maybe most of us will be modest and say that we do try.  To simply say parenting is not an easy job, is an understatement.  It really is not and like any other job it has its good days and bad.  Parenting skills are learned, we are not born with them.  You cannot just walk into a book shop, purchase a book on parenting, try to adapt to the written words and become a great parent.  It doesn’t happen that way.

Each child is an individual with his or her own special needs that has to be met.   Each child has his or her own likes and dislikes and rightly so even if they are twins, they have different personalities.  The key role of parents therefore is to get to know your child or children as individuals.  In the same way each pregnancy for a woman is different; in the same way no two children are going to be exactly alike.

One of the most important thing we as parents have to do is to have an open line of communication with our children from the moment they start learning to talk.  I know it isn’t always easy and sometimes we feel we just don’t have the time but we also have to learn to be better listeners.  Encourage them to express their feelings,.  Listen to their chatter even if it doesn’t make any sense!

Inspirational Quotes By M Williams

“How foolish is the man who spends time digging holes to bury people instead of seeds,
then wonder why there is so much weed and no fruits to reap from his garden.”

“We only truly begin to live when our desire become great enough to overcome our fear”‘

Feed the mind with positive images and words, so that thoughts produced will result in fruitful actions.”
