If life is but a dream, then what does it mean?
We all dream. We may not remember all of our dreams, but we do dream. The question is why do we dream and what does it mean?

The subject of our dreams can alter drastically and can encompass everything from the bizarre to the sublime. Dreams often give rise to emotions ranging from fear to adoration and sadness. The notion that dreams can be so compelling is what causes many of us to believe there is some hidden meaning to our dreams.

Award-winning author Carlotta G. Holton tackles this question and others including: History confirms that President Abraham Lincoln dreamt his own death. Do dreams foretell the future? What do psychologists say? Psychics? How can dreams be interpreted and used to influence memory, health and relationships? How can dreams cross over to the other side?

Learn from A to Z what dreams mean. From airports and angles to death and water. Discuss common dreams such as falling; losing teeth; entering a strange house, etc. Should you keep a dream journal/diary? How can you train yourself to remember your dreams?

Flower Power: Superstitions in Floriography

Since the beginning of time we have marked important stages of life with flowers. But did you know that flowers have their own language? It’s called floriography and it defines the positive and negative emotions of each bloom. The seeds of superstition are tightly sown into flowers. From the number of blooms to the color of the flower, to the medicinal properties they offer, and their use as omens and divination, the blossoms carry an unspoken meaning without saying a word. From King Tut to the Victorian era we have observed strong social codes via the secret language of flowers. The next time you send flowers give thought to the species and the color as they could be sending a message that is good or bad.
