The Dream Thread


I thought it would be really interesting and cool to have a thread to share our dreams! I think our dreams have meaning that may not be apparent at first. Perhaps you have to correlate your dream to something that has happened in the past for it to make sense. Or maybe you shouldn't take the dream so literally and compare it to something similar that's currently happening in your life. Idk were all different, but at least these seem to be the cases for me. OK so this one of my dreams:

There was girl who I was friends with, and secretly in love. I could never get myself to ask her out, but I had the deepest affection for her. It's been a long time since I saw her and she hasn't been on my mind for at least a couple of years. Anyways randomly I had a dream with her in it, there was this Mass Effect style room where we both were and a couple of other friends. We made small talk, and then she left the room, and outside the room was a ledge. Adjacent to the ledge it was nothing but woods and train tracks. I went out to follow her, and I assumed she took the train. So I got on the next train too, but the train tracks somewhere down line splits in two directions. The direction I was going felt wrong, like she was not there, and I had a gut feeling she went the other way. So I jumped off the train and started walking in the other direction where I thought she went.. That's it lol idk if this dream meant anything, it was just so random and I thought I share it.. I also had an entirely separate dream where I was doing parkour on rooftops, not sure if there was meaning behind that one either...

Buy a lot of beans, fuel, tools, guns and ammo. I think that means you have to prepare for nuclear holocaust.

I dreamd I made XXX with my ex-girlfriend. I wonder what that means? Will we be together again?

Actually it is very little work to start remembering your dreams. First measure is, try to remember your dream instantly when you wake up. Very soon you will remember more of your dreams.

Only, I think it's pointless. To a degree entertaining, yes.

I think 'dreams' in the other sense of the meaning of the word are more interesting.

One of my dreams is I want to hear wolf pack howling in the night in the woods north of the polar circle with my ears. And see northern lights with my eyes. And I want to stand on top of Dent Blanche soon.

Some years ago when I moved to a flat where I used to live I dreamed that I went to the roof of the building, crossed a bridged and arrived to a nice forest that looked like some sort of Arcadia with people sitting in the grass chatting and laughing. It was really nice.

I too rarely remember dreaming these days. So, I try to trigger it: spicy foods before bed, a switching and sometimes flashy bright screen saver in closed eye sight and if I do I write them down trying to remember as much as possible..?

My most vivid dream is as a kid, getting stung by a bee, it woke me up and still hurt (may have been a real bite? (Can't recall a mark?))

Then much later in life along that line, started smoking pot with some friends for a few months. Our hookup stopped selling (into harder drugs then a car accident with his girlfriend and their puppy lost a leg they quit cold turkey) a week went by and in a dream I smoked some and was high as hell!

I've also had some recurring dreams throughout life, nothing worth mentioning except déjà vu...

TMI: there comes a time in life when we can almost always control the end of "wet dreams!"

I know persons who keep notebooks by their beds so, if they wake up with a dream fresh in their heads, they can note it before they forget it and think about it later.

I find that now, when I have dreams, I tend to forget them quickly, even if they are ones I'd rather remember. The ones that I remember are the ones I fear no one else would want to hear.

I can say that, when I was growing up, about five or six, I had a recurring nightmare triggered by the old novelty tune, "The Train Runs through the Middle of the House."

I had to run down to the basement (we didn't have a basement) to open and close the doors so the train could run through the middle of the house. I can still visualize the wooden train platform with the big wooden double-doors at either end.

This was long before I ever stepped foot on a real live train platform or a real live train and long before I spent 24 years working for the railroad, which was rollicking good fun as long as it lasted.

Has anyone heard of:
Quote:
The Art of Dreaming is a book written by anthropologist Carlos Castaneda and published in 1993.[1] It details events and techniques during a period of the author's apprenticeship with the Yaqui Indian Sorcerer, don Juan Matus, between 1960 and 1965.
...
The Art of Dreaming describes the steps needed to master the control and consciousness of dreams.
good book.

Thanks for reminding about that, that's another thing that made the first dream I shared so interesting to me, is that I had it twice months after the first one...Also I had this other dream in my early teens, which was possibly my most terrifying nightmare. It occurred multiple times that made me scared to go to sleep. Where I used to live we had a front lawn, and there was this shadowy figure with a white pale face mask, except I don't think it was a mask.. It had deep black holes for eyes, and it would just stand there on our lawn. It gave the most ominous feeling, and my parents as well as people on the street were all screaming, and my parents were screaming at me not to look at it. Cause if you looked at it your will become paralyzed with fear.. I don't think I had a nightmare quite like that one again, thankfully. Thank you all for sharing, and I hope to hear more all very interesting!

I use to hate nightmares. (Now 99% of horror movies can't scare me so bring it on? I reluctantly text... )
More often than not I would end up paralyzed in them and sometimes they'd teeter on being lucid, yikes!

TMI: I'd guess out of the maybe 8 times in my life only 1/2 of them I did not control, my first 2 "completed," then I learned to stop them,,, next (was #4ish) I let it go (figured why not, can clean up and was single,) then about 20 years later and overnight at friends house (none the less) I was tricked by the dream (I remember it as a ray-cannon ) it inevitably woke me up (as all the messy ones did) and I got my laundry done before anyone knew... that would be the only reason I brought it up here (in post 10) so sorry! That's life.
