Welcome back to Tuesday's Takeaways!
This week our Top Quotes are about dreams! Based on this blog post's title, can you tell what we thought about asking? Here it is:
"I dreamt of castles in the sky
Of having all the things that mattered"
-Chaya Nachum, I took the shards
"Gasping, I awaken, pulling myself out of the inky black,
out of the landscape of my dreams.
The fear, the emotion lingers,
Even as the memory slips and fades away…"
-Naveera Arif, Nightmare
"Mangled limbs and mutilated dreams:
Who is she that convinced you that you were free?
Comatose but you woke me in my sleep.
Winding through those long dark curtains,
Haunted you and haunted me."
-Nicole Solis-Ramirez, Julio
Of an escape from the grainy air
Clutching my aura, as the voices inside my head
Constantly cry for help
Grasping for a way out"
-Saelly Alvarez, BEYOND THE CLOUDS
How long must we scream?
"The diadem of a dream that’s long since gone under
Is all we have left to cry about
But you still don’t see."
-Bethany Friedmann, SILENCE
Her own universe
In her head.
She lived in fantasies,
She drafted herself."
-Ana Khutsianidze, LOST IN HER OWN UNIVERSE
"My dreams are too big to fit onto the main road.
I’m paving my own zone, unfold my destiny slow and steady"
-Anya Supernova, Taking the scenic route
If you are feeling stuck, recognizing that you are in a dream (aka lucid dreaming) can help get out of nightmarish situations because this type of dreaming is more controlled. However, achieving a state of lucid dreaming is not always easy and takes a lot of practice. Some other tips to escape a nightmare include testing actions that are physically impossible (sticking your hand through a wall, time traveling, flying, etc.) or triggering an adrenaline rush by doing an exciting action (jumping off a cliff, etc.)
