Dreaming of feeling stuck, travelling and dreams of blocked exits

Dreaming of feeling stuck, travelling & blocked exits

Today’s dream comes from Paris, France, from a dreamer named Amanda. Amanda has had a reoccurring dream that is common to many of us, rushing to get somewhere, feeling stuck, trying to find your way in a new place, and travelling. She has reoccurring themes of travel – of trains, planes, big buildings and pressure. Dreaming of feeling stuck is something that many dreamers have come across. Amanda describes her dream: “My dream a frequently recurring theme is where my parents (who are dead) are still alive as they were. The dreams always involve a rush to leave or catch a train, plane or to find the exit in a big building.” Amanda describes her reoccurring Dream Symbols: Planes Pressure Exits, lifts, stairs and doors Feelings of being stuck, frustration: “I never get to where I need to be in dream.” The interpretation: Thank you for getting in touch with your dream, Amanda.

What does it mean to dream of bathtubs

What does it mean to dream of bathtubs?

Have you recently had a dream of bathtubs? Have you had a dream where you are washing yourself in a bath, or cleaning a bathtub? It sounds like a funny symbol, but dreams about bathtubs are really very common, as this is a household item that can be seen in many countries, for a few generations now. So, what does a dream of a bathtub really mean? Can you really tell me what my dreams mean? No – but you can. The only person who can really interpret your dreams is you – however, when you study dreams over time, you come to understand basis symbols that are common to many dreamers. Symbols are not absolute – someone who is afraid of cats, or allergic to cats may take a different meaning from seeing a dream cat than someone who loves moggies. But in general, there are common dream symbols that our higher selves and guides use to point us in the right direction and give us messages. What do bathtubs symbolise in dreams? To uncover this, I headed to…

The BMI Formula is what you use to calculate your BMI. A BMI calculator assesses your body mass index and is a broad indication of whether you are at a healthy weight or not.

Should I do the 5:2 diet? Will the 5:2 diet work?

I love a crazy diet, and the 5:2 Diet seems to fit that bill. Probably more for food obsessesers than those with a balanced approach to eating, this diet is perfect for you if you like a bit of self-flagellation and are down for a quick(ish) fix. But will it help you lose weight? Is it safe? What is the 5:2 diet? It’s pretty simple, really. You eat ‘normally’ for 5 days and fast for 2 days. A ‘fast’ day is about 500 calories for women, and about 600 calories for men, ideally spread across just 1 or 2 meals that day. On the ‘normal’ days, you can supposedly eat ‘whatever you want’ but you’re told to keep within moderation and to eat consciously. You’ll be, “restricting your calorie consumption to 25% of your energy (calorie) needs. This means you’re consuming less calories – so you will lose weight,” according to the official site. Who should try the 5:2 diet? Well, the theory is anyone. Because you’re not restricting any particular kind of food, you should be OK. This would…

How to make people think you’re sexy – 14 sure-fire tips

So, how sexy are you – really? Sexiness is something that doesn’t come naturally to some – but the good news is – there are many ways to “fake it” and convince the object of your desire that you are god’s gift to man (or woman) kind. Here, we examine what sexiness is and how you can get more in your life. We all have our “off days” and when we do, we often feel like we’re not sexy at all. What is sexiness? Sexiness is something that sits outside of you – it is a commodity that others subscribe to you, something that’s predetermined to an extent, and “out of your control”. That doesn’t mean it’s something to be afraid of – you can control others’ perceptions of you – almost as easily as you can change/update and delete information on your resume. You should be doing a “sexiness check” every six months – like fitting a bra or asking for a wage reviewed. It’s an essential part of life – like it or lump it, “As the saying…
