Have you ever been dreaming of hometown and past self although presently living in new home?
A man saddled with obesity has been battling nightmares and dreams of his early days in his former hometown. He had been dreaming the same themes for at least 5 months. The difference between his present self in his new, adopted homeland, and his old hometown, is his weight. Since living in his own residence, he had freedom to eat as much as gluttony desired. His body and brain tried to tell him how slim and healthy he was back in his hometown, as compared to his present state.
Eventually, he fell sick. Overeating triggered diabetes and at least one infection.
This is an example of how the sickly body tries to send messages to the brain.
Did you ever dream of shopping with the soul of a dead person? Or maybe dreaming of dining out with the soul of a deceased? Did it creep you out when you dreamed of going to the movies with a soul of dead person?
This book review is on Interpreting Dreams on Dead People by Cai.
My female friend, J., from a church along the east coast of my geographical region related some dreams her mother had. Her father had died many years ago and her mother sometimes dreams about him. J. related anecdotes of how her Mom dreamed her husband was spending time with her, doing the activities they used to engage in, before his death. The couple went shopping, dining out and even went to the movies, in her dreams. My friend J. believed that her deceased father’s soul visited her Mom in dreams. J. believed the purpose was to spend time with her Mom, to console her.
J.’s Mom missed her husband since he died when he was relatively young in his middle age. She might have dreamed about him because of nostalgia and her psychological need for reassurance that he continues to be present in their lives.
This book will explain why living people dream of dead people.
One night, I was dreaming of games my neighbors play.
I was very happy to move into my new home. I had just returned from a different geography and this was my first real home, in my homeland. The first people who witnessed me moving in were the security. They didn’t understand why I was shining with happiness. I was called back from like 3000 km away. I malnutrition, insufficient sleep, scurvy, rheumatism, and abuse, among other untold sufferings.
I was happy to have a home. I was happy to be home. I didn’t understand why people played games.
People in my neighborhood playing games were those working the security. Then, the estate manager pitched in. The postmen played their brief games. A few neighbors played. When the woman living downstairs became separated from her partner, she started her games. My neighbors overlooking my apartment became financially challenged with loss of income during Covid-19. They started their games.
If you were dreaming of forgiving your cheating partner, that could be your intuition telling you its time to forgive and move on. If you were waking up angry and unforgiving, it means your cognition tells you that you’re not ready to forgive your partner.
No, I don’t think that a person who cheats in a relationship with me should nurse expectations of forgiveness.
Do you feel a person who cheats in a relationship should have a reasonable expectation of forgiveness?
Book Review: A Promise Renewed by Sabrina Oyinloye.
I was drawn into buying this book after reading the free sample chapter. There was cheating and betrayal in a domestic relationship. This is what we see. Every. Day. This book is so spot on. I was not disappointed. I was rewarded with a list of tropes. Read below.
Sabrina Oyinloye is a good story teller. Tropes were used but life is full of tropes and that’s why many readers have attested to the realism of such stories. Tropes were written to reflect real life. Who has not lived through some of these tropes? You must read A Promise Renewed and go through this checklist. Hands up if you’ve encountered one or more than one trope in your life.
Polygamy or rotating multiple dating partners like a round-table.
Injury/ illness drawing back a formerly departed partner into compassionate reunion.
Revenge. (But it was all a big misunderstanding)
A main character’s sidekick and aide. (Sibling)
Sins of the father pack a heavy baggage.
Karma for the baddie (bad guy).
Some religions and cults permit polygamy. The crux of this book rests on this.
Polygamy was supposed to save more women by affording them worthy men who have proved themselves to be capable husbands. Instead, polygamy has been taken advantage of, by greedy and self-serving women who usurped married men because they were domestic trained and house-broken.
Here, a husband was deceived into believing his wife cheated on him. He had revenge of the same kind. Later, we learn he was deceived and the female protagonist was defamed. It often takes a serious injury or tragedy for the husband to return to his faithful first wife. Mothers who can’t let go of sons straddle on as the third leg. In horrific power struggles to wrestle more influence to spite their son’s first wife, they engineer second marriages to subsequent wives to join the domestic pot brewing feminine pettiness.
Saccharine love scenes pamper the erotic senses. If you’re yearning for the Mills & Boon elements, there’s more than a generous avalanche.
I bought this book to read about relationships and wasn’t disappointed. I recommend A Promise Renewed.
Interviewing Sabrina Oyinloye, author of A Promise Renewed.
You’re a prolific author of Contemporary Fiction Romance. How do you devise plots for different stories?
Experiences, an enthralling scene, a gesture, an idea, anything really can trigger a story. And once it forms I just strive to be competent enough to put it on paper. I don’t device the plot. I don’t sit down and goes, okay this is how it’s going to go. I just …write.
I started by posting stories there chapter by chapter and after a few days I would take it down. I thought nobody was paying attention and I was having my fun– somewhat testing the waters.(Emoji of Smiling face with open mouth and smiling eyes). Then for some reasons I paused and I got a message from one of my colleagues… She wrote: “You are doing a great job, now where is the next chapter ?!” (Emoji of Smiling face with open mouth and smiling eyes).
After that, another person sent a message to me and asked where she could get my books. She’d read WHEN THE HEARTS BIND ( that was my very first book) and wanted A PROMISE RENEWED which was the second. You can just imagine what that felt like! Knowing people were reading my stories to the point that they were willing to part with close to $3 for it. YES!
What’s the length of time you require to write one manuscript?
Four to Five months. I’ve used four weeks for a first draft before. ( And that was because my kids were in school) Emoji of Smiling face with open mouth and smiling eyes. Frankly, It depends on how fast the story wants to be told. (If that makes sense).
Do people who know you in your community read your books?
In 2016 I created a Facebook Author page which I called Sabrinaoyinloyeonlinereads, most of the people that liked the page back then where people that I had gone to university and Polytechnic with, then family and colleagues. The Author’s page was expanded to a group and now I have close to 400 fans from my community and beyond.
Has anyone raised any objections if they recognize themselves as characters in your stories?
No. Most of my stories are carved out of everyday life issues which almost everybody faces. And not tailored to one person. I suppose it’s normal though for us all to see a reflection of our lives in the characters.
