    My husband is a Jungian psychotherapist, so I definitely believe in dreams. I actually started blogging because of a dream I had! 🙂

    I do believe in positive thinking & following your dreams, the power of intention. I don’t have a dream journal any more. Thanks for hosting & have a great weekend!!

  3. Brenda Youngerman says:

    Ramona, thanks for the feature!
    I do believe dreams talk to us… they allow our subconscious to take over when we are so guarded we can’t believe the truth!
    Happy weekend!

  4. It’s interesting to think about “that” kind of dream. I know I dream….sometimes I don’t want to wake up because I want to finish the story in my dream….but generally they are not all that memorable to me later. 😀
    I did write about another kind of dream – the goal type earlier this week when I celebrated my 6 mo. blogiversary. 😀 But, I won’t link that as I know that isn’t what you are hoping to see.
    Hope your weekend is Extraordinary!!

      Congrats on reaching your 6 month blogaversary, Diane – what an Extraordinary Achievement!
      I often find myself wanting to finish out story lines in dreams (although it works both ways – sometimes I can’t wait to wake up!)

      Have a wonderful week filled with extraordinary blessings!

  5. I dream fairly often, and have chronicled some of these in my blog. Thanks for the lovely features & for hosting, & God bless!

      One of the ways I can tell if I’m getting good sleep or not is by whether of not I am dreaming!
      Have a great weekend Laurie – so glad to see you are here!

  6. Oh wow, Thank you so much for featuring me!! That was a great surprise on a stressful day! I can’t wait to catch up on the other blogs as well!

  7. Theresa says:

    I am fascinated by dreams. I did my final senior paper on dreams in high school. I don’t think I would alter any plans I had based on a dream though.

    Thanks for hosting this week!

      Hi Theresa,

      So glad to see you here! After the storms of this past week, seeing everyone is sort of like a safety check in!

      I am fascinated by dreams too. Thanks for joining us this week! 🙂

    Ramona, you went on caffeinated questionnaire. haha. I love these questions today.
    Do you believe in the power of dreams? Yes
    Have you ever had a dream come true? Yes – YES. They became today’s reality.
    Have you ever changed your plans due to a dream? No – I think they are meant to happen.
    Do you keep a Dream Journal? No – would like to but no time.
    Do you dream in color? Not sure, probably, because I don’t think it’s black and white.

      Hi Amanda,

      It’s funny – some weeks I rack my brain trying to think of things (unlike you, lol)…
      Other weeks, I have several topics going on and often change my mind!

      Today I had another topic picked and at the last moment, went with Dreams!

      Love your answers. I think I read someplace that more women than men dream in color.

      Have a fabulous weekend! 🙂

    Thank you so much for the shout out once again, and how sweet of you to put all that. I could just HUG you! I love hugs don’t you!~ You are just too nice! Have a great weekend Girlfriend! I wish you the best.

  10. Wayne says:

    Very nice topic choice once again.

  11. Erin says:

    I vividly dream…and it does seem like my dreams are in color. I don’t have a dream journal, but I have considered it.

    I sometimes “mumble” in my sleep…and, sometimes my husband says he has seen me “acting out” my dreams (for instance, one day I had my arms up in the air and moving them from side to side). When I was awakened by my husband, I told him I was dreaming of stocking shelves in the supermarket….I tend to do things such as that when I a EXTREMELY TIRED or when my fatigue and pain are worse.

    I have had dreams that when I wake up, I still feel like it is/has happened. When I’m VERY VERY sick…you can count on my having nightmares. Our body and how it works is truly amazing!

    Great question, Ramona!

      I have had dreams so real that I have been jolted awake and I have found myself physically “reacting” to my dreams too!

      I have also had the experience of having reoccuring nightmares when I am VERY sick. Ugh!

      You’re right. Our bodies work in amazing ways!

      Great answers, Erin! So glad you shared with us! 🙂

    I got my post up today, finally! Thanks for hosting. =D

  14. Yes I do believe in the power of dreams.

    I had a dream come true: My sister and I (live in different countries) dreamt that our cousin was murdered in a warehouse. We could tell how many shots and the words he said while he was dying. He was asking for his mother. We both had the same exact dream. They found him days later the same way.

    I have changed my plans due to dreams.

    I don’t keep a dream journal. I don’t really forget the dreams that are powerful.

    I dream in color.

    Aloha 🙂

    Mostly the dreams I remember are nightmares or exceedingly weird. I have very vivid dreams. They come true a lot. I don’t keep a journal; I keep a therapist, though. 😉

      Sometimes dreams can be a little TOO vivid!
      Your comment about not keeping a journal but keeping a therapist cracked me up.

      Have a wonderful weekend & thanks for joining the fun! 🙂

  20. The Serenity Space says:

    What a lovely idea for a blog hop!

    I have dreamed things before they happened, but it doesn’t happen regularly. I guess I ought to keep a dream journal to see if it happens more than I think!
