What Your Daydreams Reveal

Written by Joi Sigers

Let's takerepparttar most common type of daydream first: worry. We all know this one on a first name basis. Your loved one is 15 minutes late and your thoughts run to negativity like a moth to light. If he or she were an hour late, anyone would be concerned, but if 15 minutes is all it takes to call outrepparttar 122166 negativity patrol, it would pay to take a closer look at yourself and why this is so.

Doesrepparttar 122167 above scenario sound a little too familiar to you? If it does, I would almost bet that you've experienced a tragedy in your life that really hit close to home, one that was completely unexpected. Actually, if 15 minutes is an accurate measure, it's safe to say you've endured more than one such disaster. Nothing can bring about insecurities about your present and future quite like your past. (Once bitten, twice shy = once hurt, twice cautious). Sometimes just realizing this will quietrepparttar 122168 fears and negative thoughts.

Next timerepparttar 122169 15 minute mark hits (or any trigger, for that matter), tell your subconcious that you know why it's "going there" and then replacerepparttar 122170 negative, worrisome thoughts with positive ones. Focus on how great it'll be, for example, when he/she does show up!

If you tend to spend a lot of time daydreaming about far away places, you may need a change of scenery. People tend to fantasize a lot about beaches, especially inrepparttar 122171 winter - but before you call for a U-Haul, realize that you probably just need to mix things up a little. Sometimes a trip to a nearby town will dorepparttar 122172 trick. (Take it from someone who lived onrepparttar 122173 beach, even beachcombers fantasize about far away places - snowy mountains and houses with fireplaces are just as enticing!)

Do you tend to think really negative thoughts, just out ofrepparttar 122174 blue? For example, while doing a household chore, do you start imagining worst-case-scenarios? If you answer inrepparttar 122175 affirmative, you're to be commended for realizing it and owning up to it. You certainly aren't alone! This type of daydream indicates that something is missing in your life. While you probably aren't full-fledged depressed (which could be treated with a trip torepparttar 122176 doctor), there is something that you're not getting. Whether it's enough attention or love from your loved ones or appreciation for what you do, there are negative forces around you and they're manifesting themselves in your thoughts. Sometimes it's as simple as feeling bad about yourself: feeling old, unattractive, overweight, etc.

The basic feelings make their way from our consciousness to our unconsciousness.

The difference is that when we are awake, we are too blamed busy to stop and say, "I'm wrapped tighter than a plus-sized woman in spandex.......I need some down time."
