Dreaming of TV – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS #JusJoJan

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

When I dream, the dreams are often what I call off-the-wall weird. Sometimes, the dreams involve characters from books I’ve been reading recently or movies I’ve watched recently. I remember having a dream once that was a weird cross between Narnia and Harry Potter. And a funny one that still makes me chuckle when I think about it where I was Loki and I was supposed to start the water filling for a pool or something on the floor above me and I used my staff to reach up to turn it on, but something went wrong and the faucet started spraying out water just as Thor and other Marvel characters came to check on it, and the water hit Thor straight in the face.

I’ve also had dreams about TV shows, too. Sometimes its shows or animes I’ve been watching recently or occasionally one I’ve not seen in a while (and I’ll be in the mood to watch it again, afterward). A week or so ago, I had a dream involving characters from the anime, Fairy Tail. And the night before last I had one where I was part of a team of ghost hunters, and we were investigating the house where an evil spirit was supposed to be, and the spirit apparently knew us and was focused on getting rid of us (and not in a good way). It was like a cross between Ghost Adventures and Supernatural, with even a character named Bobby who was kind of like Bobby Singer (who turned up near the end of the dream). Unfortunately, I woke up before I could see how it ended. I’ve had many dreams that played out like TV shows, and I end up waking up before I can see how they end and wish I could go back to them to see the end. Sometimes, also, I think one of these dreams would make a good story, and that maybe I could remember it and finish it myself later, but that so far hasn’t happened.

30 traits of an Empath (How to know if you’re an Empath)

via 30 traits of an Empath (How to know if you’re an Empath) | The Mind Unleashed.

This is an interesting article that I looked up at my mother’s request the other day. A lady at her church had mentioned being an empath to her and told her a little about it. My mother found it interesting, and similar to things she’s experienced, so she mentioned it to me and her belief that she might be an empath, and had me look it up.

As I was reading through the list of traits, she nodded her head and commented her agreement on just about each trait. I found myself agreeing with most of the traits, as well (at least half to 2/3 of them), such as: being a good listener; not much of a crowd person; a need for solitude; people coming to me with their problems; seeming shy and aloof; being creative and easily bored; daydreaming; loving nature and animals; liking adventure and travel; always looking for answers and the truth; having a hard time doing things I don’t enjoy; feeling the emotions of others and taking them on as my own; an interest in the metaphysical and supernatural. There are other traits I somewhat related to, also. And I also noticed that some of the traits seemed to echo traits of an introvert. So now I wonder how much of my introverted nature might also be me being empathic.
