Interpreting dreams is as old as time, once described as nocturnal visions, the communications received were considered to be messages from gods. Many of the dreams we have will be weird and wonderful, and we may only remember snippets of information. You might be surprised how many of us dream of common scenarios and that they have specific Dream Meanings behind them.
Here we explore some of the most common Dream Meanings:
- Most people will experience a sinking or falling
dream at some point in their lives. These sensation dreams normally occur when
you are feeling overwhelmed in day-to-day life. It literally means you are
lacking in support.
If you cast your mind back a bit over 10 years, then you
might remember Jessie Buckley’s appearance on the BBC TV show I’d Do Anything.
She actually took second place, but not being the winner hasn’t held her back
in any way. She has had success in West End productions, TV shows including three
series for the BBC and in film. But every singer/actor has a break out project,
and the film ‘Wild Rose’, might just be the vehicle for showing just what a
born star Jessie is.
Scrying is actually one of the oldest methods used for
divining the future. The word Scrying has meaning behind it, derived from
‘descry’ an old English word that meant to reveal, or to make out dimly. Those
that offer scrying as part of their clairvoyant skills, use an object that has
a reflective or shiny surface, in many cases the crystal ball will be the first
choice, but others may use a favourite crystal, or something with personal
meaning to them.
It is thought that you can trace Scrying back to China in
3000BC, Egypt in 2500BC and Ancient Greece in 2000BC. In those times crystals
may still have been used, but also cracked eggs and oil that was placed into
vessels. It was only later that crystal balls and mirrors were used as the form
of divination developed.
- The first step is to clear the mind, some
clairvoyants may prefer to enter a trance like state to achieve full concentration.
Stuck in a never-ending cycle?
If you are having trouble with the patterns that seem to always repeat themselves in your life. It is important to know that there is always a way to break out of cycles and situations that don’t serve you.
What we experience is a matter of what we focus on. When you believe that you can’t change things – you are right. So, start believing that you can change things and you will be right also!<!-
Believe in yourself
Belief is a powerful thing…It can either disempower you or empower you, and the choice is always yours. No cycle is unbreakable but you have to start believing in your power to make your situation better. Using statements like ‘I can’t’ and ‘I’m stuck’ or other statements of this kind are self-fulfilling prophecies. So, change the way you talk to yourself and start saying ‘I can’ and ‘I will’ because ‘I will’ is saying you believe in your will. If you want to do something, you will find a way. If you don’t, you will find an excuse. ‘I can’t’ and ‘I’m stuck’ are excuses. So, question yourself. Do you really want to make a change? Because if you really do, you will find a way. (more…)
Ptolemy (AD100-173), was a great astrologist/astronomer, one of the things he did in his work was map out the position of stars and detailed the way that they influenced human behaviour.
He wrote a number of very important books, one being Tetrabiblos, with translated versions still in print today and another being Almagest which was used by later astrologers to continue the work on ‘fixed stars’ – their placement and significance.
Despite the name ‘fixed stars’, they are in fact not precisely fixed, they move in a forward direction around one degree every seventy years.
If you have a birth chart reading done, then an astrologer will be able to advise you on the significance of fixed stars, whether they were rising, setting or culminating when you were born. You may want to consider an email reading with our astrologer: https://www.psychicsight.com/email-readings Chrystalyte can give you a reading that tells you about the balance of signs in the birth chart and the blessings and challenges shown; she considers these as gifts you carry with you, and gauntlets that have been thrown down for this lifetime, to allow soul growth and greater experience.

Not everyone is blessed with being a good cook, and many of us are time poor and looking for fast ways to feed the family. If one of your New Year resolutions was to lose weight, to eat healthier, or cook more from scratch, then it can be nice to have a few handy tricks up your sleeve in the kitchen that are quick and easy, but pack a punch of flavour.
Why not give these three flavour infusions a go?
For January, I thought we would profile a feel-good movie, this time with Jennifer Lopez in the starring role. If you liked her in ‘Maid in Manhattan’, the chances are you will like her in this film – Second Act.
As the film title suggests, this is all about getting a second act in your life, not accepting that your life must follow on the trajectory you imagined.
In the film Maya (played by Jennifer Lopez) is a 40+ year old woman, who is frustrated that she has not achieved more in her life. She has a job working in a value store, she is very good at her job, but she gets passed over for promotion as a result of not having a college degree. Which just adds to her frustration. (more…)
Keira Knightley acts in a British biographical film called Colette, based on the French writer Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette. The drama is directed by Wash Westmoreland, and Keira plays opposite Dominic West, who plays the character ‘Willy’.
Henry Gauthier-Villars (Willy), introduces Colette to Paris, at a time when it is at its most bohemian, a far cry from the rural childhood home of France she was used to. She marries Willy, who is a successful Parisian writer, with all the intellectual entrapments and artistic splendour that involved.
It’s not long before Willy discovers Colette has a talent for writing, and he persuades her to ghost-write for him. She agrees, and turns in a semiautobiographical book that is both funny and brazen in equal measure. The book is named Claudine, and becomes both a literacy sensation and bestseller, with women unusually turning out in their droves to purchase the book. (more…)
Can you believe it’s been fifty-three years since the original Mary Poppins opened on our screens? I’m sure that Disney are hoping for Mary Poppins Returns to be ‘practically perfect in every way!’
The film isn’t in fact a re-make of the original, but a new movie, with a fresh story-line. To not ruin the surprise Disney haven’t actually revealed a lot about the plot.
Here’s what we do know about the film’s storyline
Jane and Michael – the grown-up Banks children are living in their parents’ original home at Cherry Tree Lane, the action is set twenty-five years later in 1935, and now Michael has children of his own.
At first you assume that Mary Poppins has returned to look after the children, but in fact she is there to help her original children – now adults, Jane and Michael. They are particularly in need of an injection of joy, after Michael suffers a personal loss leaving the whole family sad. (more…)
