Welcome, and thanks for wanting to get to know a little about me.
That's me, in my heaven, at the beach. Surrounded by fresh ocean air, sand between my toes, and sunshine for miles. Close your eyes, let's pretend we are there for a minute.
Wake up, let's get back to reality, where you can find me living in the suburbs of Philadelphia with my husband, three kiddos, and our bearded dragon, Bo. When home, we love to be outside - splashing in the pool in the summer, and playing in the snow in the winter. We love to throw parties, particularly themed ones, go on adventures like getting lost in the woods, and we live for Saturday morning cuddles. If school and work aren't keeping us tied to home, we love to travel. We visit Florida often, and hope to get some international mileage in the near future.
And, we love to dream. Our breakfast discussions usually include a, "I have to tell you about my dream," segment. My favorites are the ones that star me as the mean mom. I take that as an indicator that it's time to up my patience level. Again. And of course, there are the super detailed dreams that are shared the mornings we are running late. Again. Ask your kids about their dreams, really. It's incredible what's going on in there when they sleep.
I feel like this is my purpose. Bringing dreams to others in a fun and unconventional way. There's plenty of science out there to back up dreams, support their existence and explain the how and why. I respect and reference those studies often. But I'm here to bring it to you in an easy, breezy, and beautiful way.
I dream every night and have for as long as I can remember. There are the dreams I had as a child that are as clear as the dreams I had last night. Some dreams come back again and again until I work through them. I have dreams that are memories of a another lifetime, and dreams I can control. But my favorite dreams are the visits from loved ones who passed long ago.
My nighttime journeys are extraordinary, reflective, therapeutic, meditative, and just fun.
I'm not special though, because you dream every night too, you simply may not remember your dreams.
I don't want to live a practical life.
Totally, and completely REALISTICALLY idealistic. What fun is living if you don't actually live? And until reality is perfection, make your dreams your utopia.
Raisin' babies is fun, as is making breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day for five people, six if you include Bo, the bearded dragon. But, I need a purpose in my life that doesn't include folding laundry, doing homework, and watching 90 Day Fiancé. I have this crazy idea that it might be fun to challenge myself to better myself doing something I actually love doing. And maybe (hopefully) along the way I get some others in on my little obsession too.
So here it goes. I'm going to share my dream journey with you. I'm going to write and post all about my nighttime adventures. Every week I'll try something new to aid in dreaming. I'll use herbs, and crystals, old folklore and new trends. Before you roll your eyes, think about how much effort this is going to be. I'll need to:
Each day I'll come back and report honestly in my dream journal about what happened. How were my dreams? More vivid? More lucid? Prophetic? Nightmarish? Completely insane and now I can't look that person in the face?!? I'll also give you a heads up to let you know what's on deck for the night ahead.
I'm pretty pumped to share this journey with the world, and I would love for you to be a part of this journey too.
