Hi, Many people come across a dream that has some kind of perversion in it. Some even have actual sexual release through those dreams. Sexual dreams may be a means to compensate for what is lacking in real life. Dreams of sexual nature are common among people of all age groups and one should learn to deal with them rather than feel guilty. The theme of a dream does not matter. As far as the dream is not interfering with daily life and one is sleeping well, the content of the dream should not be given any importance. To conclude, interpretation of dreams is important to understand what they are telling you. Identifying the theme is the first step towards this. Correlating the theme to your life in general or a particular event of your life will help in understanding the dream better. Dreams should not be taken at face value—try to look at their symbolic meaning. To remember the dreams and to help interpret them better, it is advised to write down your dreams in a journal and then consult with a psychologist All the best.

I have squint in my eyes and so I had deal with a lot of psychological problems throughout my life and now when I am 22 looking forward to be in a relationship but I never get response. The opposite sex makes fun of my deformity. How mean they are, so my life is like this I get attract, I have expectations, girls reject and I get depressed. Flow chart attraction-expectation-rejection-depression. And I get following thoughts how much contribution does personality has in success of person why god is so partial, there is a saying that god made or gave everyone equal, I completely disagree with this statement. I have seen little kids with lot of talent in them and compared to them god gave me nothing. What a foolish creation of universe god has made. I don' t feel like believing god please do not say me to meet with the counsellor, I already met with the counsellor but still I am not able to enjoy the life, I even tried to ignore my desires of having in a relationship, but mind is mind it is very difficult to control or ignore desires, my desires are troubling me a lot, I have constantly raising questions through this forum about negative thinking, why the hell I think so negative, its been 5 to 7 years that I am thinking negative and want to know the source of my negative thinking but weird answers are posted in this forum and I am getting the answer knowing the source will not solve the problem. I am so pessimistic that I had a college drop and I had to switch jobs after two or three months as I am unable to concentrate, I daydream a lot even when I am bathing even when I am in toilet so lot of issues are created due to my daydreaming, which I can not disclose but when I listen to music, songs I feel overwhelmed with thoughts or emotions and I can not concentrate on the work given to me. I get angry easily as I am pessimist and I had a verbal confrontation every now and then. Peace of mind is never there, presence of mind is also not there, I am absent minded most of the time, I also shake my legs a lot when I am thinking and I get startled easily, I can not concentrate on the work as sometimes music takes charge of my mind and I get overwhelmed with thoughts and the output is mess, there are lot of errors in my work. Am in depression, anxiety or any other disorder, I know I am too much dependent on others for my confidence like I am suffering from identity crisis.

Hi my friend do not blame god. We have to conquer our mind and overcome problems. Do not be afraid. Be bold and positive. A good day will come for you. I will prescribe you some harmless flower remedy available at all homoeo shops. Mix 7 drops of gorse + 5 drops of rock rose + 5 drops of sweet chestnut + 7 drops of gentian + 7 drops of mimulus. Mix these with 50 ml water and take every 12 hours. By this you will have a calm mind. Ok do not worry.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

My kid crying to go school she always complaints teacher scolding and beating actually nothing was happening there. How to deal her she was single no other child in our premises or relatives at her age. She keeps silent plays alone how to deal her. Even in school she plays at her own.

She clearly does not like school. It is best to talk to the teachers and ask them to give her small responsibilities and chores to do in school. If they give her positive attention when she performs these activities she will feel productive. Gradually she may be asked to do some activities with other children and thus increase her involvement with her fellow students. At home make it a point to discuss school with a lot of interest, and her actions during school. There are so many things to talk about: her studies, friends, teachers, school, classroom, some parents, lunchtime, sports, games, pe classes, music, craft, bands, etc. Once you and your wife show interest in her activities at school, she will feel good and want to impress you over a period of time. Sometimes you may have to feign ignorance with certain topics and subjects, as though she knows more than you. Invite some of her friends over for tea or a party; alternatively you can go with her to meet some of her school friends even if you have to travel a good distance. Never let her be alone at least at home and definitely with some support from her teachers this can be implemented even in school. Over a period of time she will respond to these suggestions positively and your problems will all be over and so will hers.

10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Excessive attachment in any form is harmful for any human being. Loving someone doesn't mean you don't love yourself or stop making yourself a priority. At such a young age, love seems to be the only need in the world. But as you will mature, you will realsie that the most important thing for a person is to be financially and emotionally independent. Only a human who is independent gets the deserved respect in any relationship. Follow your dreams, follow something which excites you and attain financial independence. Next is emotional independence. If you are unable to achieve this, there is no harm in taking professional help from a counceller or psychiatrist. You have your whole life ahead of you. Don't waste it for someone who doesn't respect you as much as you do. Good luck.

Is there any way to quit smoking? I am smoking from past 5 years, is there any danger to my life?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Lots of danger to life, if you smoke. there are 7000 chemicals in cigarette smoke and most of them are harmful. Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. Smoking uses the respiratory system and gives you a faster kick. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 7000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke and chew tobacco: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga) or chewing, and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking tobacco. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.
