Dreams

I have a house I dream about sometimes and I'm positive it's me. When I was diagnosed with cancer in 2010, I dreamed that I was just puttering around all day and suddenly noticed it was dark, the curtains and windows were open, and the front door wide open. I ran to shut everything in a panic and later realized I was blaming myself for the cancer - that I'd somehow thoughtlessly left myself "open" to it. Not true, but understandable.

I had the weirdest freaking dream last night. I was living and working with a group of people who were all doing improv comedy together. All improv groups included wizards, vampires, werewolves, other supernatural creatures, and regular humans. The supernatural creatures and magical beings used improv to squash beefs and keep the streets free from bloodshed. There was also this generally genial habit of pranking each to limit a person's ability to do magic during your improv scene. My group was on edge because there was a big showcase coming up with a talent scout from Saturday Night Live in attendance. One of the human members of our group was desperate to have the showcase go really well because he botched his last SNL audition because he was having girlfriend drama. One of the wizard members of our improv group was Cate Blanchett. Not someone who looked like her, but her. Lisa Rinna was also a wizard in another group, who had a penchant for shady curses.

have read that when there are things in the dream to evaluate them over time to see if there is a common theme. Like do you dream about a house and garage door a lot? 

I've dreamt of houses in one form or another most of my life, though not consistently.  I've posted above about a dream in which my sister and I are teens again and our parents are in their 40s and we were house hunting and the house was impossibly huge (hundreds of bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, etc.).  This is the first time I can remember in which I dreamed of the garage being open.

 did you feel that you were vulnerable for some reason? (Door left open.) Have you revealed too much information to someone?  That your security is not protected well and that you may be annoyed by someone near by who is bothering you (boy next door)? So you feel frustrated about something that is causing you distress.  Maybe not a real neighbor, but a colleague, partner, mate, family member?

Actually all could apply:

 

  I've been bullied at work by a supervisor (who I recently learned is in league with a person I used to like and respect).  Every little thing that used to not be a problem in 17 years on the job is suddenly a violation and gets me called in to the office/HR.  Once she took over as my supervisor (a job I put in for but she brown nosed herself into despite being a complete incompetent) the bullying began.  I can't do anything according to my lawyer since I live in a right to work state.

My father died in 2015 and I miss him and my mom (who died in 2011) deeply.  

I never met Mister Right (or had kids), so I'm quite afraid of living the rest of my life alone.  Sure I have friends and hobbies, etc. but it's so quiet with them gone.

A neighbor was burglarized.  I'm scared of being victimized.

Magicdog, you do have a lot going on and I see why your dreams may be reflecting that. I don't have any suggestions, but, I might get a second opinion from the attorney about the job issue.

Hunterhunted, that sounds like a really WILD dream. I can relate. I've had them my entire life.  What a blast! lol  When I dream like that, people ask me if I had hot peppers before bedtime.lol

Give me your input on my recent dream happenings. First of all, I know it sounds weird, so, I haven't told anyone about it.  I don't like that kind of attention. Ok.  A couple of weeks ago, I had a very vivid dream in which I was devastated with grief.  In my dream, my mother died. I was inconsolable. I was still upset when I awoke and it took me all day to shake it off. I didn't mention it to anyone. FOUR days later, her best friend, suddenly passed away.  She had been on the phone with my mother mere minutes before her heart attack. They were super close and spoke by phone several times per day.  I suppose it was just a coincidence, right?

About that same time, I had a dream that I actually was training for a marathon.  I've been doing a little research about how far it would be to run a marathon WHILE AWAKE.   I watch RHONYC and was inspired by one of the ladies on that show. While AWAKE, just off the top of my head, I picked a place to get an address that I thought was about 26 miles from my house. It's a business that I have never been to, but have seen in driving.  I used that address to gauge how many miles it was.  The next day, a friend referred a client to me.  When we spoke he told me that he worked at that location. (It's a business.)  Isn't that odd?  

There was one more incident, but, I'll hold off on it for now.  I'm kind of hoping nothing else weird like that happens.

Belated reply @SunnyBeBe -

Dream 1 - I believe that some of us are wired into some larger paranormal circuitry connecting us with those we love.  My cousin is way tied in and a couple other members of the family have the touch to a lesser degree.  I only get hit with it once in awhile but when it happens, it is a different feeling than other passing thoughts.  I'm assuming that you have no reason to believe your Mom has an extremely short time left on earth and dreaming about her death would be unsettling.  I'd guess that you got hit with some form of precognition because of how close your Mom and her best friend were.  The fact that they were speaking on the phone moments before it happened was just probably coincidental - they spoke so frequently the probability was much smaller than with most.

Dream 2 - That is odd.  I haven't been able to put any connections together there.

 

My own contribution - last night I had a dream where I was driving on a freeway in a fair amount of traffic, but I don't know what car I was driving or what freeway.  Suddenly it is almost completely dark and the car is picking up speed.  I can see out my windshield, but only as far as the end of the car and everything else is pitch black.  I can't slow down nor see the lanes so am in a panic certain I am going to hit another car.  I am increasingly panicking and am trying to scream, but not much sound is coming out.  I somehow am aware that I am in a dream, need someone to wake me up and am hoping I can scream loud enough to wake up one of my children.  I finally managed to wake myself up and had a hard time going back to sleep.

When I finally did, I had this odd dream I was taking my great nephew to the bus stop for the school bus.  Other kids were coming to the bus stop too, but several of them were carrying their pet gerbils in their hands.  They weren't taking them to school - they were just bringing them to the bus stop and would put them on the ground when the bus came.  They told me their gerbils were really smart and knew how to get back to their house.

Your compassion for animals even comes through in your dreams...this doesn’t surprise me about you. 

Your first dream did sound scary. Are you venturing into something new and this is the fear manifesting?

Awww...thanks!

My Dad studied dream analysis a LOT.  He always said a car often represents your body so usually that is what I think of too.   I've been thinking I need to go see the Good Doctor because for the past week or so, I wake up in the morning with so much lower back pain that I don't even want to risk getting out of bed.  For the first 5 - 10 minutes it is so bad, that I need to ensure I have something to help stabilize me as I start to move around.  It gets better throughout the day, but I still need to be careful because if I move the wrong way it is a shooting pain.

I've had 2 massages in the last week just because of this pain and trying to see if physical manipulation would help.  The morning after each one, I had less intense pain but it was still in the intense category.

@DeLurker I’m sorry to hear about your morning back pain. Do you have a heating pad? It might help to warm it up when you become awake and then let some of the heat relax your muscles before getting out of bed and beginning your day. I hope that it goes away soon.

I've tried both putting an ice pack on it and heat, but neither has had any significant impact.    I can't see any signs of irritation or inflammation, it just runs a bit warmer than the rest of my body so there might be some thing going on there.  I've left a message to get an appointment which is huge for me.  I generally put off stuff as long as I can, but I don't think I can drag my feet any longer.

I appreciate the thoughts. Sometimes, my dreams are just so vivid.  It's a wonder that I get any rest. lol

I have also had dreams about driving the car and things aren't working right. In fact, it's a recurring dream for me, so, I can relate. I have dreamed that something is impairing my vision and I can't see where the car is going. It's dark and lights don't work. Or,  the brakes don't work and I am probably going to hit something. Or, that the steering wheel isn't working properly.  My belief so far, has been that it symbolizes a feeling of being out of control and anxious about what lies ahead.  That's just my take on it.  Because, I do feel that way when awake, so, it must be on my subconscious. 

The other night, I dreamed that I was talking to Bill Cosby and he told me that he was going to prison, as soon as the jury came back! lol  It's odd, because that trial wrapped up some time ago.

In my dreams, "me" is usually a house. Not always the same one, in the same place, and only once was it someplace real. Right after I was diagnosed with cancer, I dreamed I was just puttering around my then-current apartment. Then I looked up and realized it was full dark and the front door was wide open, as were the curtains. I woke up as I was running to shut everything. Didn't take a lot to figure out I was blaming myself for the cancer; that I'd somehow left myself open to the danger, somehow. Not true, but understandable, emotionally.

Another time, I was in my house (in the dream, anyway). There was a guy there who acted like he belonged there, but I wasn't sure who he was. Was he a boyfriend? Just a friend? We went to bed together, and were murdered by an intruder that was already in the house because he yelled when he saw them. I now think he was a representative of all the people treating my cancer, and screwed up, somehow, causing my death. The intruder already in the house (that was me) was the cancer.

So, weird anxiety dreams where you are a house or car aren't that unusual.

The car in my dream might have been doing double duty:  my actual car and my body.

I found out yesterday that an innocent looking idiot light did not mean my radiator fluid needed to be topped off.  It meant I needed a new radiator which is going to cost north of $1,000.  My car is a 99 Volvo Station Wagon which I have an unnatural and probably unhealthy attachment to, but it always requires Volvo parts since the brand is persnickety about aftermarket parts.  The care and feeding of my baby is starting to come at too high a price tag a little too often.

Today, after physically examining my back and doing a couple of tests, the Good Doctor took xrays.  I have somehow strained my lower back and the intense pain is from the sciatica nerve loudly protesting.  I get to go on some form of steroid pack and get  a muscle relaxant and things should start to improve.  Then he gave me some specific exercises to start once the pain levels have substantially lowered.  If this doesn't work we can go with physical therapy and/or an orthopedic specialist.

Riley702, that's some pretty intense stuff about dreaming that you were being killed in your house. But, I think you sure have figured out the meaning.  I have heard that we are working things out in our dreams. I hope that's true, because, it seems like a lot for us to endure, with no payoff. I hope you are feeling better. 

DeLurker, I hope you're feeling better too.  I had a severe back issue hit me a few years ago and omg.  It was horrible and I was terrified.  My problem resolved itself though and I hope you get relief too.  My primary said that I tweaked something and gave me some stretches to do. I wondered if he knew what he was talking about.  I was disappointed, but, did them anyway, as soon as I was able and omg.  Those stretches did more for me than the medication.  They really helped and I still do them.

It's a pretty old car (this is coming from someone who knows what it's like to hang on to things for longer than he should.)

I had an exceptional odd dream about marrying a man!

As most regulars on here maybe aware I am lesbian, and as such have always felt a greater affinity to women rather than blokes. (not that I hate or despise men, or anything like that. But I just prefer the company of women)

But last night, I had a most peculiar dream that I was dating a guy I had met at university 3 or 4 years ago. Really nice guy, very personable and friendly. And for whatever reason I asked him out on a first date (in my dream); and we took it from there. So much so that in my dream he ended up proposing and me accepting. I told my parents and they were relieved. And the next thing he's walking me down the aisle of a church etc.

The thing is, I haven't seen this guy since those uni days; and he only popped into my head because I read an article about History undergraduates finding it hard to find a job (he was studying natural history amongst other things)

Weird!

That's really interesting Zola.  I honestly have no idea where that dream came from. Unless you are now finding that you may actually like men in a different way.  

 Do you believe in synchronicity dreams? I've had experience with them quite a few times over the years.  Whenever I have been very close to someone, I have actually had dreams in which, I felt things that they were feeling in real life.  Most of mine have been sad or scared feelings though.  Like, when my ex-boyfriend was seriously injured in a car accident or when my mother got bad news.  I wonder if your friend is going through a tough time or having a great time and getting married. Were the two of you really close?   Just something to consider. 

I have actually dreamed that I agreed to marry people that I was not in love with before.  I recall justifying it in my mind that it was a smart decision, because, they loved me, they were financially secure, and that they were a good person. I had one about  celebrity (Blake Shelton) that I agreed to marry not too long ago. (And, I'm not a huge fan of Blake's.) I can't recall if I posted about it or not.  But, I recall thinking that I was making a mistake, but, felt it was still the right thing to do.  It's a surprise, because, it doesn't sound like something that I would do.

@zola - dragging my Dad back into things because he read everything he could find on dream analysis/interpretation...often another significant person in the dream somehow represents you in some capacity.

Are there some qualities in this guy that you admire and maybe think you could use more of?  For example, Real Life Guy was very patient and did not get thrown off his game easily and you are impatient and exasperated if things don't go according to plan (total example - not commentary!).  The dream message to you being X characteristics should be incorporated into your existence on a permanent basis as it would be beneficial to you.

Okay, this is really BIZARRE.  Ref. the boldface above.  I posted that comment last Wednesday about the person that I had a synchronicity dream with years ago an ex-boyfriend.  Well, the following Friday night, I had a dream about this other person, who was a good friend of mine. I'll call him Neal.  He died under unusual circumstances about 3 years ago. I've never been settled on it. HE and my ex-boyfriend (David) knew each other. In fact, I had confided in Neal, about my ex-boyfriend, when we had had some difficulty in the relationship. He knew my feelings about the ex.   Anyway, in my dream on Friday night, I dreamed that I saw this Neal and he was alive. We spoke, hugged and chatted a little. It was so nice to see him in my dream.  In my dream, I was thinking that he wasn't alive, but, convinced myself that he was, since he seemed so real.  When, I awoke, the dream stayed with me. It touched my heart, because Neal died too soon and it just was so heartbreaking. 

I kept thinking about the seeing Neal in my dream and for some reason, it caused me to think of my ex-boyfriend,, David.  (The one from the synchronicity dream.)  I decided to look him up online, just to see if he was still living abroad, like he was the last time that I had spoken with his sister.  For all I knew over the years, he was living a wonderful and happy life.  So, I was SHOCKED to find that he died quite a few years ago!  I had no idea. It's left me rather unsettled. How did I miss a dream from years ago that he was sick or dying?   It's a feeling that I just can't shake.  I found his obit, but, no cause of death is mentioned anywhere. He was still living abroad. I'm ticked no one notified me of the Memorial Service, but, I suppose that's expecting too much.  

I'm still curious as to what happened. He was not very old and not of poor health, that I ever knew. I'm going to try to open up more in my dreams and wait for him to send me a message.  Does that sound crazy? lol   What gets me is why did I dream of Neal, who caused me to look for David online, instead of just dreaming of David directly?  Hmmmm.......

I had an odd combo of dream and thought/message last night.

In the dream, I was excited because I was moving into my new home.  I entered my new building and was asked which unit I was looking for?  I kept saying 718 even though I was moving into 9-A.  The only significance of 718 is, that's the number of the unit I lived in for 10 years in real life.  Great building, great management, great neighborhood.  9-A has no significance that I'm aware of.  I just recognized my "dream" building as being next to my old building, the one where I did live for 10 years in real life.  I was excited to see 9-A in my dream.  I was walking to the door when...

My beautiful 19-year-old foster kitty started walking on my chest demanding to be petted and woke me up. lol  So I'll never know what my new home was supposed to look like. lol

The thought/message?  It happened concurrently with the dream and I cannot understand the significance unless I'm simply taking in what I see on the news:  I had a very strong impression that I will be shot in the chest and I will bleed out, and that will be the end of me.  WTF? 

I don't know if this thought is connected to my dream about 9-A.  I just know that they both occurred last night at roughly the same time.  Any takers on interpreting this weirdo stuff?

I've had a fair amount of success going back to sleep, even after going to the bathroom, and picking up on a prior dream and completing it!  I'm always amazed when it happens, but, I do try, since it sometimes works. 

Since you feel secure and good about the 718 it's probably something you trust and feel positive about.  There may be some trepidation about the new place, but, as long as it has some of the qualities of the old place, like the number, it will be okay.  I'm not sure about the shooting in the chest.  The chest contains the heart.  Maybe, there is fear of heat break.  Is leaving the old apt causing you to grieve?  Or, it could be that you had some indigestion.  I don't rule out that our bodies could be sending us signal, but, our brain interprets it as something else in an attempt to make sense of it.  Also, maybe, you crave the safety of the old apt and aren't sure if the new one will be as safe.  When you saw a shooting on the news, your mind thought it could be a possible threat in a new community.  Just some things to think about.  I'm not expert on this.

I had an interesting dream the other night, it probably reflects how starved I am for compliments and appreciation for my work.

In the dream I am working with a celebrity (who I admit, I am crushing on) and he and I are working on a project together.  He'd written a screenplay and I made some changes to it and made additional suggestions.  He loved my changes and couldn't wait to put me on more projects!  He wondered why wasn't I in this game sooner!  I remember feeling so happy that I was doing so well and that someone "in the biz" honestly thought so!  I briefly contemplated how great everything was at that moment!!

Then I woke up.

I'm reminded of that joke about the American Dream - that it only happens when you're sleeping.

So sorry to be this tardy in responding.  Just wanted to thank you for your thoughtful comments.  As it turns out, I have just put in an offer on a place...#516! lolol...and we hope to close on this property at the end of September.  I'm still not sure of the significance of 9-A.  But your response is very interesting.

Congratulations on the new home.  I hope it works out and you're in by Sept.  

Our dreams certainly are a mystery.   I've been also having some pretty bizarre synchronicity experiences lately.  Not sure if there's a place on the boards for those.

Well this was a pretty funny dream.  I have NO idea what it's about and don't think I've dreamed it before, but, I had a pet white rabbit in my kitchen and it was very tame. I didn't keep it in a cage, but, let it roam free in the house, but, it was worrisome, because it could not only hop, but, climb up walls!  lol  A very cute little thing too!

I just had a dream and I'm not only exhausted, but genuinely fearful!  I'm not sure what it means (if anything) but here goes:

I'm with a blond woman who in the dream appears to be a friend (or at least new acquaintance) who resembles a celebrity (though having woken up I cannot recall which one).  I notice an explosion of light in the distance - like a nuclear strike - except it wasn't a mushroom cloud.  It seemed more rounded in shape, which began to move like a wave after the initial explosion .  The light was headed towards us and I tell my friend to shield her eyes as we begin to get away (I think we are in a car for part of the way, later running).  I recall telling her to run as far away as possible.  The flash eventually caught up with us and blew past us (or dissipated) and I found myself OK, as I had kept looking down and doing everything I could to avoid looking at or being directly exposed to the bright phenomenon.  The woman however was blinded (unknown if it was permanent).  We managed to find help nearby (EMTs I think) and I recall thinking we were OK and no longer alone.  The dream ended there.  There was no destruction like you'd expect from a typical explosion, most everything in the dreamworld looked intact, just empty and somewhat dark, like this all occurred at night.  I really felt like "the end" had come!  It was as if someone had finally gone too far and unleashed this nightmare explosion.

Last night, I dreamt about Ben from Lost for the time in a very long time.

It was Ben, so there was killing involved, but that's about all I remember. It has left me in a weird mood all day and I expect I'll pull out the season 4 DVDs and watch them tonight.
