Fascination of the unknown is something that lies inside all of us, especially me. I’ve always been attracted to mythology and all types of horror movies. Of all the stories I have absorbed into memory, besides Dante’s Inferno, I can’t recollect someone describing what it’s like for the souls of the damned reaching the gates of Hell. This week I thought about creating a unique photographic piece that served as my interpretation of that experience. Would you scream? Would your skin burn and peel away? Would you slowly and painfully turn to stone to be a toy for the wraiths of the underworld? Would the agonizing cycle continue for eternity?

Don’t worry I didn’t lose my mind! In case you’re wondering, there are no computer-generated effects in this photograph. This is the power of about 80 layers and a week worth of patience. My speedlight was also used off camera and fired into a reflective umbrella to give me the perfect lighting to start it off. Listening to Black Sabbath and Dio helped the process!

Warning Dreams

April 24, 2014 on 8:56 pm | In Dream Come True, Dream Research, Message Dreams, Prophetic Dreams, Taking Action | No Comments

The subconscious mind is very observant. It knows far more about our bodies, minds, and lives than our conscious mind does.

Researchers have found that by hooking people up to electroencephalograph machines, for example, they can tell when someone realizes or recognizes a target object, such as a landmark on a map as viewed from a plane in real life, long before the subject signals (by pressing a button) that they have consciously recognized it.

Dreams are the nature’s way of communicating subconscious knowledge to our conscious minds—or trying to. You see, the subconscious mind communicates in pictures, metaphors, and symbols. It rarely deals in names or numbers.

That makes it easy to avoid unpleasant realizations if we choose to ignore them: the cheating partner, the serious health problem, the impending job loss. We do know, but we refuse to accept or acknowledge an unpleasant situation, because then we would have to do something about it.

Most of us never dream that we will be arrested and spend time in jail. It is unthinkable to the average middle class person. Yet it happens every day to someone.

On some level we may know that we drive when we’ve drunk a little too much, that we keep forgetting to pay those traffic tickets, or that we are doing business with someone a little shady. Until the police show up at our door or we are stopped for a traffic violation and suddenly we need help.

Our subconscious mind shows us information in dreams in hopes that we will take action to prevent disaster. Ideally we would stop drinking or take a cab home, drive more carefully and pay outstanding tickets, stop associating with people we have serious doubts about. But often we don’t.

Another way to act on your dreams to prevent disaster is to find a good attorney and carry his or her card at all times, program the number into our phones, etc. For example, in Ohio, you might need to know a good Cincinnati Attorney. It always pays to be prepared.

Even if you are only visiting the city on a business trip, you could suddenly need to a good Cincinnati Criminal Lawyer. The time to pick on out and make the connection is before a crisis occurs. 

A fun gathering with new associates or even a staid business dinner could result in someone in your group suddenly needing a Cincinnati OVI Attorney to keep from being charged with driving while intoxicated. Your being prepared could save the day.

Really all of us should find a lawyer we have confidence in and keep their contact info with us at all times. If nothing else, it may come in useful for someone else who is not so prepared as we are.

So if you have had dream of police, a courtroom, accidents, a lawyer, a jail or a judge, take action. Ask around for the name of a good criminal attorney and do a little research, so you can be the one to save the day.

Because some dreams are really our own minds warning us about things that on some level we already know.

All people dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in
the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to find
that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people,
for they dream their dreams with open eyes, and make them come true.

–T.E. Lawrence (AKA Lawrence of Arabia)

Inspiration and Dreams

January 17, 2014 on 6:42 am | In Dream Come True, Visions | No Comments

We are all meant for something; that is what is real in life. When this thing we are meant for is not part of us, not with us, that is when we are at a loss in life, in our careers, and in our personal lives.

All of this is connected, for when we connect to what we are meant for, where we are meant to be, and in the end who we are meant to be with, that is truth. That is our inspiration and that is how we really live our lives. We all can find this; we can find our home in the life that is in our heart and a connection to it that is real. We are not meant to flounder in life or to misplace this connection.

We are all looking for what we are meant for. Often, we don’t know where to look or we are just looking in the wrong places. Destiny plays a role, but so do we. We have as much a part in our life as everything else does. When we choose to be present and really listen to ourselves, then that is where we find our inspiration, our truth, and what we are meant for.

Looking elsewhere is fine, but the real desire, the connection you need, is within you. Believe it or not, you already know what you are meant for in this life. You do not have to find it; it is already there. What is keeping you from knowing it lack of trust you have in yourself and what your heart is telling you.

Dreams are inspiration; dreams that make your heart beat faster and your mind quicken. This is not about just day dreams, it is about the dreams you may have kept hidden from even yourself. The real dreams you may have talked yourself out of because you thought they were too farfetched or unrealistic, but they are your inspiration for life, they are the key to your happiness.

When we choose to follow our dreams, to listen to them, we are helping ourselves find our destiny; we are beginning to understand our role in life and what we are meant to do. Dreams can be reality, for they connect to us down to our soul. They speak to us at such a deep level that they are primary.

By giving your dreams a chance, by letting them inspire you, you can reach a place of true potential and growth, living the life you are truly meant for. All of us can if we give ourselves a chance and listen to what we already know.
