I have just finished a cosmetic dental procedure for a friend and he has not stopped smiling. This is one of the reasons I still enjoy the practice of dentistry. His big smile speaks volumes, but he just nods and says as most men will say,” this will work,”
and that’s enough for me.

As business owners, I am told we should start spending more time working on our business than within our business.
The daily grind of turning nuts and bolts is not enough in today’s economic climate.
Good communication lines with patients/clients must be a first action to remain successful.
Many of us left 9-5 jobs to utilize our gifts and talents to achieve our dreams. My dream was to help as many people as I can in the field of health care. Along the way to that dream the hobbies travel, photography and writing have been incorporated as well.
The challenge to all of us is to keep dreaming. Dr. Charles McPhee states that the most common emotions experienced in dreams is anxiety and fear. Dreams often mirror life experiences but can also include fantasies and frightening elements
from the imagination such as vampires and the apocalypse. A movie, book or even a computer game can also be reflected in a dream. To avoid sleeping troubles, sleep problems or sleeping disorders, ensure your sleep comfort in the beds that you sleep in. Take natural sleep aids for a good night’s sleep. Sleep in when you can and remember sleep disorders will be diminished with comfortable beds. Dreams are more common than unconscious thoughts that stream through our minds while we’re sleeping. They are “windows to the soul,” claims Dr. Charles McPhee, host of the National Institute of Mental
Health and author of several books on dream interpretation. Everyone dreams. It’s just that not everyone remembers their dreams. According to Dr. McPhee, the best way to recall your dreams is to simply try to remember the details as soon as you
wake up in the morning. Because most people dream immediately before waking up, all it takes is a little concentration to clear the cobwebs of morning delirium. This means waking up slowly and keeping your mind clear of the coming day’s worries. Most of us don’t need any coaxing to stay in bed for a few extra minutes. So seize the opportunity to start your day with some serious relaxation and meditation. You’ll be amazed how great your memory really is.
Here are the 10 most common dreams from his website and their meanings.
Naked dreams are one of the most common dreams and usually signify an underlying fear of exposure or vulnerability.
If you have recurring dreams where you are naked, think about how your life circumstances might cause you to feel anxious or vulnerable.
Dreams of flying represent the dreamer’s ambition, but minor details like the height at which the dreamer flies can be important as well.
Dreams involving a fall are another common theme governing your unconscious. Most falls symbolize fear or a lack of control and can forecast setbacks that are associated with those feelings.
4. Being chased
Many dreams are exactly what they appear to be, and it doesn’t take a PhD in psychology to figure them out. For example,
if you have a dream that you are being chased by someone or something, you are most likely trying to escape a person or a situation in real life.
Of all the common dreams, this is one of the most dreaded. McPhee points out that some psychologist interpret dreams of
paralysis to simply be a result of your physical inability to move while you’re sleeping. McPhee subscribes to the theory
that is of psychological interpretation. He believes that paralysis can be a symptom of something deeper.
The presence of water in a dream represents your range of emotions, depending on the condition of the water. Calm or mildly flowing water suggests you are content with your life, while a waterfall can predict an improvement in your
7. First Day of School
The first day of school is always stressful – perhaps because you worried that you wouldn’t find your classes, like your teachers, make any friends, or worst of all eat lunch by yourself. Lowenberg holds that dreams of this nature bring with it
feelings of stress and fear that you won’t fit in or perform well.
We’ve all had dreams about death at one time or another and woke up feeling sad, and then felt great relief when we realized it was a dream. If you dream of your own death, it may simply mean you have been recently reminded of your mortality.
Have you ever noticed that you primarily dream in color or in black and white? Dreams that are especially colorful and bright usually have more significance. Stearn and Corbett assert that dreams of many colors suggest you feel secure and that success is on the way. Blue is calming and signifies liberation, while black is a dark omen, unless it occurs naturally at a funeral or if you have just experienced the loss of a friend or family member. Brown forecasts an abundance of money,
bright red suggests a hot temper you need to control, and deep red foretells good news. Gray represents the passing of time,
and lavender or mauve signifies disappointment. This list can go on and on.
Dreams of romance, love or physical affection that bring positive feelings, mean you are happy, content and well-adjusted to your circumstances. However, if your dream leaves you feeling hurt or insecure, it may mirror your love life. Dreams are important indicators of life circumstances and can help you become a happier, more content individual. With the help of interpretations for your most common dreams, you can better understand your emotional needs and then effectively deal
Did you know that your greatest assets are your dreams and your willingness to devote yourself to your dream.
A dream gives us direction. It gives us something to aim towards. Without a dream you don’t see beyond your circumstances.
The greater the dream, the greater the potential to see it come to reality. A dream helps us prioritize so that we can get it designed and implemented in reality. Dreams add value to the daily work that we engage in. Some people punch the clock and wait for pay at the end of the pay period. Other folks go to work and get lost in shuffling the papers, boxes and turning the nuts and bolts. But how beautiful to create for others from your position. Think about the artist who creates a masterpiece or the architect that designs a building that will stand out in any city’s skyline.
These works of art first came into existence as thoughts. The thoughts formed in the mind on the spiritual side of life. They manifested within the physical universe. We all have the power to manifest thoughts into physical form, from the unseen universe to the seen universe.
We must discontinue our bad habits that kill our dreams. We all have a prime time to get things done. T.V. networks know this and compete for your prime time with their programming.
Use that prime time to continue developing your thoughts so that they manifest for you in the physical universe.
If you turn the T.V. off before going to sleep, your mind will not be cluttered with all the T.V. programming absorbed by your mind at night.
After you dream, use your creativity to develop an action plan and go to work.
There is purpose in our dreams.
