The body as a whole is an excellent source of dream imagery. Particularly given the number of body related metaphors in daily use. In general the head and its features are related to spiritual or intellectual matters; whereas dreams of the torso and limbs are to do with physical concerns or instincts. The heart, is the traditional centre of our emotional lives and actual source of our life force. Phrases such as ‘broken-hearted’ or ‘the heart of the matter’ may feature in dreams, but it often represents love. Either yours or the love for someone else or the love that surrounds you.
Blood is a very powerful dream symbol. It represents the life force within everyone, literally the life blood of the human race. To dream about blood is connected to our physical and mental strength or general health. If you dream you are bleeding, you may be concerned about a loss of morale, will power and physical strength. The dream is probably only telling you what you already are aware of; But, it is strange how we often ignore the detrimental affects that our lifestyles and relationships have upon us in waking time. But when we dream about it in such a literal way, seeing ourselves being drained of our life force, our life blood, it can often be the wake up call we need to do something about it!

In a world where there is so much upheaval and uncertainty. One could hardly blame people for wanting things to stay the same. Finding comfort and security in the routines they have established for themselves. Particularly if in the past life has been particularly turbulent and stressful. But, can this tendency to want to play things safe, stifle creativity and growth? Is there a fine line to walk, between creating a peaceful life for ourselves to becoming stuck in a rut where we are so fearful of trying something new that we stagnate and become dissatisfied with life?
As human beings, I believe we actually thrive and flourish when faced with and challenged by new experiences. That it is only when we encounter something new do we have the opportunity to add to the skills that we already have; and to challenge long held beliefs and thoughts about the world around us. It is only when we move out of our comfort zones, do we even begin to touch on what we are capable of being and doing.

When we think of Soulmates, we most likely think about romance. Some people go through life searching for that perfect person who will make them feel complete. They discard anybody who doesn’t fit this description and believe there is only one perfect person out there for them. One story about soulmates describes how a person was separated into two halves and scattered far apart. Both halves then spent the rest of their lives trying to find their other half.
Although this sounds nice, in principle; if these people never find their soulmate, they can end up lonely and miserable. It may be true that there is one perfect person out there but the world is a huge place and it is disheartening to think that one may never find true love.
