I am sure if asked, we have all been guilty at some point in our lives of saying something inappropriate. Or of speaking impulsively, without thinking. For the majority of people I believe this is not done with any real intention of offending. But for some individuals, it can be a trait that they pride themselves in. One of speaking ‘plainly’, without using the filter of their minds to consider, if what they are about to say will hurt someone’s feelings, or give offense. Indeed, they may believe that it is a quality to be admired. I have often heard the expression used. “Well, people will always know where they stand with me, as I always speak my mind”.
The question I would ask you to consider is this. Is speaking your mind, or being blunt, without worrying about how what you say will be received by someone else. Something you would like to cultivate more in your life? It may be that you are someone who is not very confident.

When you decide to further develop your spirituality, it is good to keep a daily journal. There are many things you can write in this journal; however, the main thing is that you update it, at least once, each day.
When you write down your daily reflections, it is probably best to do this before you go to bed; this is because you can give yourself some quiet time to think about the things that happened during the day and record them in your journal. You don’t need to write down every little detail, such as what you had for breakfast. The idea is to really think about why things happened and how they made you feel.
Some professions encourage employees to keep a reflective diary, so that they can learn from their mistakes and do more of what works. When you write down your daily reflections, it allows you to think about why you’ve made mistakes and how you can improve things in the future. Your journal is also a permanent record of things that are happening in your life, so you can see any patterns. We often repeat the same patterns in our lives when we have a lesson to learn. If you notice that you keep spending all your money a week after getting paid, you can use your journal to reflect on why this keeps happening. What lesson do you need to learn from this? How can you do things differently.

It is impossible to categorize dreams strictly into type because each dream is different and therefore unique in its own right. They can, however, be recognized as basically literal, symbolic or a mixture of literal and symbolic imagery. Once this is discovered, the dream can then be seen as a warning dream, an encouraging dream, a prophetic dream, a psychic dream, a healing dream or a nightmare, depending on the reason for its creation in the first place.
Life is made up of one experience after another and these experiences often give rise to problems which need solving, accepting or facing. We can do this in two different ways. Through intelligent reasoning with our head, or intuitively with our heart. Sometimes we make decisions with our heart, sometimes with our head, but the best solutions are those reached when our head and heart agree.
Usually, it is our head with its logic that rules during the day, and our heart with its instinct that rules at night. ‘Sleep on it’ is good advice, for that is when our hearts have their chance to contribute, so listening to our dreams with their message is vital.
