Yesterday I saw my ex-husband and the woman he left me for and their family at the mall. Although I have moved on and I am way better off than I ever was with him, I dreamt about her last night. She was nice, but she was wearing her bra backwards and she had a better computer than I did. I am a graphic designer so I always want a better computer. What does this mean? It's bugging me. – Victoria 43, Des Moines, IA
Lauri: Interesting. I think she was nice in your dream because you have made peace with the whole thing. The backwards bra, I believe, is confirmation from your inner self that nurturing (which is what breasts represent) wounds from the past would only put you in a backwards frame of mind. SO that’s a really good sign. However, her computer was better than hers. Is there anything you do feel she has better than you? A better body? A better job? Or did seeing them make you realize there is something in your life you need to upgrade?
Victoria replies: She is a naturally thin woman and I have the body of a woman who has had 4 kids and never bounced back to my 20 year old girlish figure. I do want to lose weight, not to look like her, but for my overall health and that has been on my mind a lot lately so that makes sense. Thank you for your expertise!
Fascinating Sleep Fact: Researchers from the University of Florida found that nearly 12 percent of current smokers have trouble falling asleep, almost 11 percent wake in the night and 9.5 percent wake too early in the morning. The figures for nonsmokers were much lower, and researchers saw that for those who gave up smoking, their sleep improved significantly.
