The Year of Living Kindly -Kind Woman Blog - Kind Gardening

IMG_1246

This is my blog about living kindly being kind to the planet, kind to others and kind to myself. It has become a little easier to be kind, I find myself less negative and more inclined to see everything from a different angle and in a more positive light. This makes me feel better about myself, about the world and about those around me.

Gardening in Florida, from my perspective is fun for a couple of months of the year, when it is warm, not cold and definitely not hot! My philosophy on a garden is that is should be a space where we can give back to the flora and fauna of the local area but also be a place that we can enjoy looking at and relaxing in. High maintenance gardens that rely on mowing grass and spraying chemicals are a no-no. In poisoning the insects, we are killing the birds, the butterflies, the bees and contaminating the ground water and poisoning ourselves. Even if you don't care for bugs, poisoning your children and grandchildren seems like a high price to pay for a green weed free lawn.

My front garden is extremely zen, I inherited it when I purchase the home and have since dug up all of the ratty old grass and replaced it with pine mulch. The pros: it is really easy to maintain, it is different, it is lucky bamboo. The cons: there are no green areas for birds and butterflies.

The back garden is the opposite to the front garden,  I am trying to create organized chaos, I want a space where birds and bees find plenty to eat, I am growing out an ugly lawn and trying to turn it into a butterfly meadow! I added the stepping stone paths and made borders using planks of cheap wood. I reused some palettes to add some potted plants and I have been busy planting pineapple tops, avocado stones and lettuces. The compost has also been a source of tomato plants and squash! I also spread some wild flower seed that I hope will bring me some more blanket flower. This is a work in progress and I am nervous about keeping everything under control but it feels good to have a kind garden!

Dream Meaning - Dreaming about shoes

What does my dream mean?

This is my dream interpretation blog where I describe a dream, explore the meanings of elements of the dream and come up with a dream meaning. Here is my dream interpretation blog, where I explore dream meanings. In today's dream our dreamer is wearing creaky shoes. She is conscious that her shoes are noisy and that they are not her usual shoes.

Dreaming about shoes - this can symbolise our way of life, the way that we move around through the world. Our shoes propel us through life. They can be our foundation and support, something that we rely upon to make progress in life.

Dream meaning - old shoes - this means that you are experienced in what you are doing in life. 

Dream meaning - uncomfortable shoes - this means that you have taken on a role in life that you are uncomfortable with. Perhaps people around you are not being supportive.

Dream meaning - dirty shoes - this means that you have neglected the things that are important to help you through life and if you continue on this path your quality of life will suffer.

Dream meaning - odd shoes - if you dream of wearing odd shoes- you are trying to do too many different incompatible things and would do better to concentrate on one thing and do it well.

Dream meaning - shoes on wrong feet - you need to revise your approach to life, at the moment you are making an elementary mistake which will cause you discomfort.

Dream meaning - broken shoes - you find that you can no longer rely on those around you and it is necessary to take a new approach to a problem.

Dream meaning - high heeled shoes - you seek to become more important, you are looking for promotion.

Dream meaning - rubber boots - you have a down to earth back to basics approach to life.

Dream meaning - flip flops - you are taking a more relaxed view to your life and career.

Dream meaning - athletic shoes - you need to be be fit and agile and ready to move quickly to take advantage of a situation.,

Dream meaning - ballet shoes -be prepared to work hard and keep on your toes!

Dream meaning - winter boots - you will have warmth and support from those around you.

Dream meaning - lace up shoes and boots - you will need to be strong and ready to take on new challenges

Dream meaning - court shoes -these are classical work shoes and you will be in a professional environment.

Dream meaning - Squeaky, creaky shoes - you will be noticed and unable to pass through life unseen

In todays dream our dreamer was not comfortable in her shoes, she was not wearing her usual shoes so she had taken on a new role or was in an environment where she was not comfortable. She was upset that her shoes were noisy, she prefers to be anonymous and not draw attention to herself.

Dream Interpretations

I started interpreting dreams when I was a teenager. I always had very detailed dreams and would recount them to my friends. One of my boyfriends bought me a dream dictionary and I started to delve into interpretation. Unfortunately, I found that many dreams had elements that were contradictory and so I did not really get a detailed analysis of my dream.

I realised that different people have different relationships with dream symbols based on experience, their daily lives and culture. A person who keeps snakes will have a different interpretation of a snake dream to a person who has a fear of snakes.

Dreams may have symbols that are said to be good omens and then some that are bad omens, understanding the context of the omens will help you to interpret their true meaning for you.

My blog is a series of dreams and interpretations of the elements in each dream to help you to understand how best to interpret your dreams, I am also available to interpret a dream for you. Email me: mysticpolly@yahoo.com, dream interpretations are free!

I organise the dreams by general subject area rather than alphabetically, if you have a question about a dream symbol please email me.

Tarot Readings!

I started reading tarot cards many years ago when I was in college, I was studying business but my real interest has always been in psychology, astrology, tarot and dreams. I waited a long time to pursue tarot reading professionally. I do not understand how tarot cards work or why they work. I do not believe that you need special powers to read the cards but experience and an understanding of the symbols on each card opens the doors to a successful interpretation.

It is a good idea to be in a quiet place to have a tarot reading, to be able to free your mind of distractions and concentrate on an issue that you would like some insight into. Tarot cards can give you insight into situations and things that are happening around the questioner.

I have been a tarot reader for more than 40 years and will be happy to do a reading for you, the cost is $30 for 30 minutes or $50 per hour.  In UK: £20 for 30 minutes or £35 for 60 minutes. I use PayPal for payment and Skype to complete the reading. Please email me to set this up with your preferred time see below.. Readings are for entertainment only!

 In US Time: I am available Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 2pm, 3pm, 4pm or 5 pm Eastern Standard Time and Saturday 9 am, 10 am and 11 am EST. 

In UK time: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 7 pm, 8 pm and 9 pm. Saturday 2 pm, 3pm and 4 pm.

The Year of Living Kindly - Kind Woman Blog - Blueberry Picking

This is my blog about living kindly, being kind to myself, kind to the planet and kind to others. I do not always get everything right but I am a work in progress.

This is the beginning of blueberry season in Florida and we are fortunate enough to have some blueberry growers near to home. To make this even better, these blueberries are organic, which is really important if you are consuming soft fruits with no protective peel to save the fruit from contamination. 

It is great to support local growers and it is also enjoyable to spend some time outdoors. This grower, Blue Bayou Farm is located in Yalaha and also sells bootleg liquor, fruit and vegetables and homemade pies. I discovered that the best picking rows, were in the middle and the middle of the row. People usually start from the beginning or the end but rarely in the middle!

I picked several pounds of blueberries and put most of them in the freezer for use on breakfast cereal and smoothies. Perhaps I will even be adventurous and make a blueberry crumble! It's really good with ice cream or hot custard.

Dream Meanings - Dreaming of Running Away

What does my dream mean?

This is my dream interpretation blog, where I describe a dream, interpret each aspect of the dream and then decipher a dream meaning. Here is my dream interpretation blog, where I explore dream meanings.

In today's dream, the dreamer dreams that she is with her mother in law and she is trying to escape from her. It is night time and she drives away, it is very dark and she cannot see where she is going, she knows that there are many deep potholes at the side of the road that she must avoid. She arrives at a small town, possibly in a foreign country that she had once visited, she walks past a bar and sees an old boyfriend who appears to be still waiting for her, she tries to pass by unnoticed.

Dream meaning - running away - if you dream about running away you are trying to avoid a situation in real life. You are possibly in denial about something, you may have a problem that you do not want to acknowledge.

Dream meaning - mother-in-law, these relationships can be good or bad and so the dreamer will need to see the context of the mother in law -a good relationship can mean emotional security but a bad relationship can show that you are in a relationship with people that you do not trust or feel that they do not have your best interests at heart. A mother in law in a dream shows that you are or were once in a serious relationship.

Dream meaning - driving in the dark - if you are driving in the dark, you are going through life with no particular plan, you cannot see your goals, you are just in motion.

Dream meaning - Potholes in the road - potholes in a dream are symbols of things that you should avoid, you may suffer injury or become stuck in a situation. Potholes symbolize problems with achieving your goals.

Dream meaning - being in a foreign country - this is a situation where you are out of your comfort zone. If the dream was positive, it is a sign that you will have new fun and adventures, if you were lost then you will find your new surroundings challenging.

Dream meaning - to see someone waiting for you in a bar - most likely this is a sign that there is someone waiting out there for you, perhaps to date you or to hang out in social situations.

The meaning of today's dream, our dreamer runs away from her mother in law, she is in an unhappy situation , possibly in a marriage. She gets into a car, in the dark with no idea of where she is going -this shows that she leaves the unhappy relationship with no forward planning. She realizes that what she is doing is risky, the road is dark and full of potholes, she finds herself somewhere new, unscathed. She survives the journey and goes back to somewhere that she was before. Perhaps this symbolizes being single, she has previously been single. The man waiting for her in the bar is a sign that she could start dating again but she wants to avoid this.

The Year of Living Kindly - Kind Woman Blog - Seeking Positive News

This is my blog about living kindly, being kind to myself, kind to the planet and kind to others. I do not always get everything right but I am a work in progress.

Since starting this blog, my change in perspective has made me so much happier, I am able to appreciate the small things in life and the big things, like freedom! We are constantly hearing about free speech, freedom to say what we like whether or not it hurts somebody else and it is easy to get caught up in this maelstrom from the media. I have been saddened when I see some of my facebook friends posting things that show they are hurting because of something that they read and took personally. I have been guilty of being a media junky, it is easy to do. The answer is to only read good news stories, because if something is going to effect you personally, there will be enough warning to alert you to any personal danger.

Facebook has been getting bad press recently and probably deservedly but if you have positive people on your news feed, you will have positive reinforcing messages to read every day and did we really think that our information was private and not sued for profit?! I am grateful for all the positive messages and I choose to ignore the nonsense and manipulation.  There are several positive news websites that only report good things. Here are some links:  Good News Network Positive News  Sunny Skyz

Remember, what you resist persists - block from your mind and thoughts all negativity and negative people, listen to stories and read about things that make you feel good and give you reasons to be cheerful. 99.9% of people are good -(not a scientific number) but a good reminder that there is a great deal of good out there and we should learn to trust each other.

Have a wonderful day, you create your reality.
