D.L.Hammons is hosting the 2012 version of the Deja Vu blogfest once again. Yes, it's Deja Vu all over again as participants offer old favorite 2012 blog posts for readers who might have missed them the first time around.
As I wandered back through the archives of Tossing It Out I realized that perhaps half of my entries were guest posts, blogfests, or book reviews and the like. Another twenty percent or so were A to Z posts or posts about the A to Z Challenge. That still left a number of posts that had already been fairly well visited. So instead of repeating any of these I thought I'd take a different approach. I hope it's not cheating--I don't think it is.
What I've decided to do is revisit a post from one of my other blogs. I'm pretty happy about the visitors I get here on Tossing It Out, but my other blogs are somewhat neglected. I have a few loyal followers at my dream blog A Faraway View, but I wouldn't mind getting a few more. The ones who visit regularly tell me it's among their favorite blogs. It's a niche blog, but it's a niche we can all probably relate to.
Another reason why I think this post is fair game for the Deja Vu BlogFest is that a companion piece also called "Dynamic Flow", which was a guest post by Halina Goldstein where she discusses her own theory of the Dynamic Flow concept as she interprets it, appeared on Tossing It Out the day before the post on A Faraway View. You may also like to check out Halina's guest post for the contrast.
I hope you enjoy this look back to a January post from my dream blog A Faraway View. Please come to visit me and check out other posts.

The concept that was given to me in the dream I intuitively recognized as "Dynamic Flow". I cannot say if the meaning of this term was verbally explained to me, demonstrated in some way, or something that I just knew. But I did know the meaning. Dynamic Flow is the theory that states: Outward movement of money will result in an incoming flow of money.
My mental state soared as I believed that an age old secret of wealth had been bestowed upon me. It was early morning as is the usual case in this stage of my life when I wake up. Per my custom my first action of the morning was to check the computer. But before checking through my emails or blog, I immediately opened up a new post window and entered the title "Dynamic Flow". I then went to the text box and entered: Dynamic Flow is the theory that states, "Outward movement of money will result in an incoming flow of money."
As I continued through my morning--eating breakfast, doing morning chores, checking through emails--the essence of the dynamic flow concept stayed with me, but my enthusiasm waned as I no longer understood all that had seemed so clear to me when I first woke up. And now I have a vague idea about the dream definition of dynamic flow, but it no longer seems so amazing and life changing as it did right after having dreamed it.
I have had dreams like this on occasion. I will dream of a concept that seems revelatory and profound, leaving me with a belief or delusion of great life-changing discovery. Then as my mind becomes distanced from the dream I begin to face reality? Lose the truth revealed in the dream? Realize the lie that had been presented to me? I'm not sure what the answer is, and I suppose it could be any of these depending on the dream.
The messages of dreams are not always clear nor are they necessarily overtly true. If dreams are messages from the subconscious mind then the truths may be disclosed by lies of symbolization of dream images that are tangible and intangible representations of things that we know in waking life or they could possibly be misinterpretations that we have made about things in waking life as we have seen or experienced them. Or are they lies that come from some place or being outside of us? This would be the most frightening thought.
Have you ever awoken with thoughts of apparent genius until you thought them through and realized they made no sense? Have you ever awoken with a brilliant idea that did make sense and you were able to apply in some useful way? Have you ever had dreams that you believe could have been planted in your mind by some outside evil force?
