The 10 most common dreams and what they mean.
#Dreams

In the great tradition of people who bore other people by recounting  their dreams, I … am going to recount my dreams to you. Don’t worry. You’re gonna get the chance to bore everyone else, including me, later.

Since I was young I’ve had nightmares. Lots of them. Death, destruction, chasing, kidnapping, murderous heart pounding dreams. You name the nightmare and I’ve had it. Oftentimes over and over again.

In the past few years I’ve switched over to general anxiety dreams that are still very disturbing but not quite as death filled. I’ve never thought much about these nightmares of mine. They’re just who I am and believe it or not, and this will sound really insane, but … I find them kind of comforting now. I’m sure there’s some sort of subconscious appreciation of how my dreams are dealing with my real life problems that I don’t even know I have. Mind you if I’m discussing that fact with you right now it’s probably a conscious thing isn’t it?

That’s generally what dreams do. Dreams deal with all the stuff you aren’t dealing with in your waking life because you’re too busy packing lunches and wondering where you hid the vodka.

According to the Encyclopedia of Mental Disorders only a small percentage of people have nightmares on a regular basis. And about half of those people suffer from psychiatric disorders. I don’t think I have a psychiatric disorder, at least not one fierce enough to cause nightmares every night so I’m more inclined to go with the Encyclopedia of Mental Disorder’s other rationale for people with nightly nightmares which is the fact that artistic or creative people are at a greater risk of nightmares. Mainly because they have better imaginations.

The past two years have seen an increase in nightmares that revolve around cloudy, scary, turbulent water.  I’m in that water.  Which makes sense because it was almost 2 years ago that the fella ran away from home.  The dreams are me finding my way.  Which is really strange because I’ve never been happier.  Guess the nightmares are doing their job.

It’s amazing when there are so many of us with such different brains yet we all have the same themes in dreams.  Don’t believe me?  Here’s a look at 10 of the most common dreams.  I’m guessing you’ve experienced at least half of them.

If you’re looking for a little more than this get The Dream Dictionary for Dummies.

 

Being Chased

Being chased in a dream can mean you feel threatened by something in your life or you’re avoiding something.

 

Water

If the water is calm and clear, you’re at peace obviously.  If the waters are murky or turbulent you’re struggling with equally turbulent emotions.

 

Teeth falling out

Teeth rotting or falling out in your dreams?  You’re afraid you’re losing control over something.  It’s a symbol of powerlessness.

Flying

 You’re super high.  No wait, it means you’re experiencing a newfound sense of freedom or control.

Plus you got a new cape, so …

flying-over-paris

Exam time/Audition time

The ubiquitous “I have an exam or test and I never went to class and never studied” dream.  The test could be in another language or you can’t get into the exam room … whatever the case it’s a test and you’re anxious about it. This is a classic anxiety dream and usually means  you feel like you’re being judged or evaluated by someone in your life.

I have both exam and audition dreams.  Audition dreams happen more often than test dreams in people who went to performing art schools or studied music and acting.  I have them because of my work in television.

omg i’m naked

You’re feeling exposed or ashamed of something if you dream you’re naked in public.  It can also mean you’re feeling vulnerable.  Or you’re a hippie.

 

Death

 Dreaming that you die means you actually died while sleeping.  Just kidding.  My 12 year old self couldn’t resist.

Dreaming of your own death signifies starting over.

Cheating

Cheating dreams are another common anxiety dream.  If you dream your husband/wife is cheating it can mean you’re literally worried about them cheating.  It can also mean you have trust issues with them or are feeling insecure for some reason.

Sex

Dreaming about sex means you want to have sex.  Seriously.  Well sometimes it does.

Gay Sex (when you’re not gay) means you’re secretly gay.  No it doesn’t.

Same sex dreams often mean you need to get in touch with your feminine side (if you’re a gal) or your more masculine side (if you’re a dude). So break out the nail polish or start swinging that hammer.

Falling

Dreams where you’re falling are also classic anxiety dreams. They usually mean a situation in your life is spiraling out of control. It could be your job or  a relationship.

If you’re falling but aren’t afraid, it means you’re in control of your situation and will easily get through it.

Keep in mind dreams can be interpreted in a few different ways.  Also keep in mind some people think dream interpretation is a bunch of hoodoo.  But if that was the case, then chances are we wouldn’t all be having the same dreams as each other.   A dream may mean one thing for you and another thing for someone else but as long as you know what you’re going through in your real life you should be able to figure out what your dream means to you.  If you don’t know what you’re going through in your own life you’re very, very dead so it doesn’t matter.

If you want to delve a bit further into your dreams (and who doesn’t) I can recommend 2 books to keep on your bedside table.

The Dreamer’s Dictionary was published in 1986 and has sold over a million copies with the majority of hundreds of readers on Amazon giving it a 5 star review.

The second book is The Dream Dictionary for Dummies and it includes not only dream interpretations but also techniques for dreaming more and remembering the dreams you do have.

It’s now time for you to bore everyone with your dreams!

    I poked at the ceiling with the broom handle and could feel that it was soggy. The walls were spongy from the wetness and in the corners mold was growing. I found an opening in the floor and could see the water below, slowly eating away at the foundation. I slowly backed out hoping the floor would hold me long enough.

  2. What if you have a dream of falling while cheating at having sex and your teeth are falling out while you are being chased naked at the exact time of escaping death?

    Does that mean something?

    Ps. The Cape. The most awesome thaaaaang evah !!

  3. Mel says:

    It was incredibly nice of me to leave that daily planner for my little brother before I took off mid-year for a semester of college. I filled in all the things he would need to keep track of. (We’re both in our 30s now, reality check.)

  4. SusanR says:

    I got out of bed to get a glass of water, when I stepped in something cold and squishy. In the bedroom behind me, I could see the cats in their jammies, laughing hysterically and high-fiving each other.

  5. katie says:

    Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray came to my bridal shower and gave me a very nice wedding gift. I spent the rest of the shower party wondering if I had a serious chance with him and if I should postpone or cancel the wedding.

  6. Ella says:

    I keep getting so close to the boy I had a crush on in highschool, but it never happens. NEVER. I feel so guilty waking up next to my now husband, who is way cuter and kisses me back 😉

    • whitequeen96 says:

      Hey, I have the same dream – about getting close to the boy you had a crush on in high school, but *I* get him! LOL!

      Actually, I have the same dream about the guy I liked, but no dice either. 🙁 sigh!

      • Aimee says:

        I have the same dream but we grew up next to each other we were neighbors and childhood friends and I always had that boy next door crush on him but nothing crazy…we graduated high school together and only see him maybe once a year, we are both married and he has 2 kids and lives downbeat South who but I constantly dream about him and last night I had a i I’d dream and he was in it again…it’s driving me crazy! Why is it alwaYs him?!?!

  7. Joy says:

    An evil man in a mask tries to kill me in my sleep, the room is on fire. I know if I don’t attack or get through the door past him, he’ll kill my kids. Screaming with everything in me, I run towards him uncertain of what I was going to do. The light comes on, it’s my poor husband trying to use the restroom in the middle of the night and I nearly startled him to death with my waking nightmare. We can laugh about it now.
    I’ve recently discovered the link between days I take benadryl and my recurring nightmares. Has anyone else?

  8. Ella says:

    The above should read “I keep getting so close to kissing the boy I had a crush on in highschool….” I think that might be classified as a deep Freudian slip!

  9. Lesley says:

    Many dreams since retirement 3 years ago about my old job. Invariably either in the wrong office, or the right office but nobody recognized me, or late for something important or missing parts of my uniform. Then … don’t laugh … had my horoscope done and was told that I should never EVER work for an autocratic, authoritarian or rule-bound organization as it would wither my soul. Old job was all of those things, in spades. Since then – dreams have stopped.

  10. Jennifer says:

    I’m going on a trip overseas. On the Concord. I start packing 1 hour before the flight, when we’re already supposed to be @ the airport. I end up packing only socks and a few t-shirts. I wake up panicking.

    I have this dream before every vacation, unless I make very complete lists.

  11. Pat Kichinko says:

    Backstory: My Godmother gave me a stuffed clown when I was a little girl, and I didn’t like it, so I stuck it waaaaaaaaay back in my closet.

    I dreamed that it was night, and I got up to discover a glow around my closet door as though I had left the light on inside. When I opened the door, the clown was front and center on the shelf and smiling at me. Brrrrrrrrrrr……………….

  12. Raymonde says:

    When I was about 4 years old, I dreamt that my house was being circled by a bunch of horse riding Indians. They caught me and squeezed my toes to prevent me from breathing. I laughed so much it woke me up. 🙂

  13. Tina says:

    I’m from Germany, so I just woke up – in my dream I had an awful screaming fight with a colleague at work. He is really nice, the reason for this dream fight doesn’t make any sense, and I don’t use that sort of language at school. Work will be strange today – I’m still furious!

    And I had those flying dreams – but I always botch the landing…

  14. Tracie says:

    I have always had vivid dreams. I dreamt once that I ate cottage cheese, which I love. The only thing was, I took a spoon of it to my mouth and ate it, but realized at the same time, that it was green and mouldy. When I woke up, I could taste mould in my mouth, and could not eat cottage cheese for many, many years. I can eat it now, but then? I could actually TASTE the mould for such a long time. I’ve also dreamed of flying, on a broomstick, but struggled to get off the ground. That’s just the tip of the iceberg…

  15. Gail says:

    An answered knock on the front door reveals Tom Cruise on my porch on bended knee (not tying his shoe) with ring in hand. He begins to speak. I remind him that he broke my heart when he married Nicole. I politely close the door and high five myself. I am cured of Cruise fever.

  16. p says:

    Wow my crazy dream is a lot darker than anyone else’s. Makes me wonder if I should actually post this.

    I am tied up in a straight jacket in line with a few other people who are also tied up similarly. We are at a gathering place and there are lots of people watching, like an old school town square. I watch them take the person at the head of the line to a large guy who bends them over and makes them sway back and forth. Then he hits them over the head, hard enough so they are bleeding and seriously dazed but not dead. He repeats this, swaying their body for a minute before bludgeoning them again until their head is just bloody pulp. When they are dead, he throws them in the discard pile where there are already several other bodies with mutilated skulls, before moving to the next person in line.

    • Louise says:

      Good God, p! What a horrible dream!
      I think you must have seen or heard about that soldier who escaped ISIS while all of his fellow-soldiers around him were treated almost identically to what you described. This was a few months ago. I hope that makes you feel a little better!

    • Louise says:

      PS. Also, something very similar to your dream happened years ago in Uganda under then-President Idi Amin. I remember reading about it in Reader’s Digest. Maybe you read that article too.

      I’m a font of grissly knowledge.

    • WeirdDreamer says:

      Well I have had a dream where I found myself (in the dream) on the floor staring up at the ceiling where I could hear creaking footsteps and like extreme bending of the boards. When I got up I heard them stop and strafe towards the stairs every time I moved or made a sound that indicated movement. I died a couple times in this dream from a “creature” that stared at me from the bottom of the stairs and ran towards me as I couldn’t move when they charged. I had always been held in place whenever they got to the bottom of the stairwell. It was something holding me still immediately if they came down the stairwell I couldn’t do anything but be beaten by this thing. SORRY I GOT TOO FOCUSED ON WHAT MY DREAM LOOKED LIKE I ALWAYS LUCID DREAM SORRY.

  17. jules says:

    I’m sitting on a stool flying about a metre above the ground, scooting along at some speed. I’m enjoying this until suddenly the stool takes off and the fields are a patchwork quilt below me, then I’m terrified and wake up. I’ve lost count of the times I have that one!

  18. Tigersmom says:

    Strangely unperturbed by my friend wanting to spend half a day shopping for used Christmas decorations in the rented house of a group of very unlikely roommates, I am quite relaxed until a tornado-like column of bats appears in the house that somehow now has a 100 foot ceilings. My impending panic becoming obvious a random guy throws a sheet at me and says disdainfully, “Somebody tent her.”

  19. V says:

    The office in the 20-story high rise is flooded, and inexplicably filled with sharks. I have to leap from filing cabinet to filing cabinet – which keep tipping under my weight – to get away from them, but there’s nowhere to go. It’s the scariest, heart-thumpingest dream I’ve ever had.

    I’ve had this dream several times a year for decades. I’ve only had it vary once: the high-rise was a mansion on the bayou, the sharks were alligators, my sister was there and I was strangely unperturbed about the whole thing.

  20. Teresa says:

    I dream about my x’s (and there are a few, I’m not blushing), in all sorts of situations. I almost never dream about the one I’m with, only the x’s.

  21. Natika says:

    Giant snake rumors going around the beach in Australia. Later, it enters our high school classroom, but we are all saved by standing on our chairs.

    The easy to read symbolism:
    Beach in Australia = care-free times
    Classroom = my job
    Fellow students = my co-workers
    Snake = that one evil co-worker
    Chairs = her temporary contract up in two months 🙂

  22. ~JackieVB says:

    I’m on my way somewhere and I have to get there by a certain time. Along the way I encounter different people who need me to do something for them so we have to go to this place and get this thing before I can go to wherever I’m going. I can feel how frustrated I am and am starting to think I won’t be able to find the place I’m trying to get to. We always pass some sort of stormy water, or spend time in a house that has many more rooms than you would think it has (that’s actually the cool part of the dream). Then at the end I try to run so I won’t be late but I can’t run, no matter how hard I try – it’s a slow walk.
    I’ve never known where I’m trying to go, but I have a hunch it’s to the liquor store to buy more Vodka.

  23. Beckie says:

    I am eating a meal in a nice restaurant and as I pick up the last bite, I watch a fat, but “only” 1″ long millipede crawl over the edge of the plate.

  24. Cindy says:

    wildlife dreams! #1: I’m in bed and two lions are peacefully curled at my feet. #2: I’m in a forest and all manner of wild animals–elephants, hippos, lions, wolves–are walking past me, on their way to somewhere important. #3: I’m walking on a snow road, surrounded on either side by huge snow banks. Everything is bright and white and clean. A large buck is standing in the middle of the road and as I approach it an eagle or hawk flies to land. These dreams always fill me with a sense of something quite meaningful is happening or about to happen.

  25. Mel says:

    I’m giving birth but there is something wrong with my baby. Something different each time. I’ve been dreaming this for months now. I am seven and a half months pregnant with my second and I had a scare with my first so I guess that explains it.
    I have frequent nightmares. One reoccurring one that I’ve had since I was a child was that I am small and hiding in the carpet under the edge of my bed. My dad is vacuuming and he can’t see me or hear me over the sound of the vacuum. I wake up before it sucks me up.

  26. Blandine says:

    Elvis laughs at the cute doll house I’ve just built. I’m offended and wake up cranky…

  27. I have 3 disturbing recurring dream themes.
    1 is the teeth one. My teeth keep coming loose and falling out to the point i only have about half of them left.

    2 i am cheating on or leaving my husband and kids for an old boyfriend and he is leaving his wife and kids too. We are so happy together that i am sad when i come to reality and realize its not my life. mostly because i dont have that happiness or love in my life not because i dont have him

    3 is more disturbing than nightmare. I am in a house or place and i know that is a dream and i am fighting and struggling to wake up because i know its all a lie. I finally do wake up and feel a bit better and lighter but inevitability fall back into the cage of the dream. Meanwhile all this is a dream i am actually having. A dream within a dream and i know that because when i wake up for real life everything is very heavy and i am sad. I actually have fitful sleep these nights waking within the dream waking to reality and falling back asleep over and over. When i do hit reality its for a few fleeting seconds and i am unable to stay awake and feel like i am dragged back under. I am often yelling in my dream for help because i know i am trapped in the dream.

    • Sarah says:

      Your third example, dreams within dreams, is something I have experienced many times. That, and being stabbed, are the most terrifying of all my dreams. The dream is very realistic. I am always in my own bedroom. I dream that I awake from my sleep to discover a stranger in my room. A stranger with the intention to do me harm. I am trapped, paralyzed and afraid. I realize it is a dream and make myself wake up, but I have not awoken and the dream continues. This can happen multiple times. I have to force myself awake by making a violent motion. Sometimes I am able to, sometimes not. When I finally awake, I am left exhausted and with a lingering sense of terror. I have to get out of bed to break the grasp of the dream. I am always afraid to go back to sleep. Sometimes I just turn on the light and wait for morning.
      Any suggestions?

      • Kavarius Hester says:

        That is really horrible and i just had a dream where i woke up but i really didnt wake but only in my dream and i was struggling to wake from it multiple times and i am wondering do you have any advice for me?

      • Nate says:

        Perhaps if you leave a bb gun by your bed and memorize where it is in real life, you can imagine in your dream that it’s a revolver or a modern pistol. Then simply shoot the intruder in the shoulder. Run to him and scream, “Who are you and why are you in my house?”

        Alternatively, in your dream, think of your husband next to you. Don’t ask if he’s there, simply reach for him. Perhaps the dream is trying to teach you to rely on him.

  28. mbaker says:

    I met up with my friend and his twin brother; he had never previously had a twin so I pointed this out. He told me that this was my body’s way of telling me that I was having twins (I’m pregnant in real life).

    Needless to say, I’m quite anxious for my next ultrasound.

  29. Su says:

    love the cape… rarely remember dreams…..

  30. danni says:

    Had the most wonderful, amazing, orgasmic toe curling sex with this person…
    (woke up in a love haze… slowly realized that this person was someone I see all the time and despise!!! Made for very awkward blushing and stammering at work I tell you!)

  31. Shanelle says:

    The day before High School we had to attend an Orientation evening. The night before this, I dreamt that I wore the school uniform but everyone else wore casual clothes. On the actual evening I wore casual clothes and everyone turned up in their uniforms! I might be a dyslexic psychic…

  32. Jake says:

    I win the lottery, lots of money, and build six small cottages for my 4 BFF and myself. One cottage left and we end up fighting about which favorite MAN gets lucky enough to live with us. So far the winners have been, Prince Harry, Hugh Laurie, Prince Harry, Elvis, Brad Pitt and Prince Harry.

  33. Becca says:

    Explain this one. I’m sick but have to get groceries anyway so my friend (who happens to be seriously hot but fantasy material) comes along to keep me company. I push the cart and he follows along behind, sitting cross-legged on his two-headed, orange turtle. He’s playing his mandolin and, every now and then, the turtle can’t help itself and starts to crazy dance, dumping my friend on the floor and stopping the music. FYI, the store employees are not thrilled with two-headed turtle messes.

    • Pam says:

      HA!! The crazy dancing two-headed orange turtle made me laugh so hard! I wish I had such entertaining dreams!

    • Karen says:

      LOLOLOL! ~ karen

    • Langela says:

      You feel badly that your friend is “fantasy material”–sickness
      Your feelings for him follow you everywhere you go.
      You try to distract yourself–two-headed orange turtles
      He keeps pulling you back in with his “music” and your distractions aren’t enough to distract you.
      Every once in awhile your distractions work- he falls off and music stops.
      Or maybe not any of that.

      • Becca says:

        Seems entirely reasonable. Perhaps you could shed some light on this one.

        I’m camping with a somewhat younger than his current age George Clooney. It’s a lovely night and the tent is cozy. In his most gentlemanly manner, he is attempting to persuade me to let him join me in my sleeping bag. I rebuff him gently. Repeatedly. I know it’s a dream but I keep turning him down.

        When the alarm woke me, the thought foremost in my mind was “WTF!!! What kind of idiot turns down George Clooney in potentially the hottest dream of her life?” Menopause throws some wicked curve balls.

        • Langela says:

          He’s sweet and nice to look at, but not the man of your dreams. You need more than looks to let someone close to you– in your sleeping bag. Plus, he’s sweet and you want a loud man who rides a two-headed orange turtle, casually. 🙂

          Age has a way of changing who I would be attracted to. It’s no longer looks, but responsibility, stability, honesty. Though looks don’t hurt.

        • Laura Bee says:

          Bruce Willis wanted me like no man has ever wanted me. I had my chance and I turned him down. It’s been ten years and I still remember that night.

  34. Rondina says:

    For years, I’ve been able to analyze my dreams—normally right after I wake from them. I’ve gotten to the point where I believe I’ve trained myself to wake up in order to analyze them. I had chasing dreams for years. Same neighborhood, same houses. The person chasing me caught me one night revealing who they were. Those stopped. Airplanes crashing into buildings I was in.(pre-9/11) Those stopped. Tornadoes. Those stopped. Rising water. Those stopped. Not that I don’t have a significant amount of anxiety, but I guess I’ve moved past the trauma of early life.

  35. Linda J Howes says:

    I’m alone, trapped, and wolves are about to attack.

  36. Katie Grace says:

    I’m 12 and our family is just getting home from vacation. My parents are unloading the trunk of the car while I’m walking towards the garage to go into the house. A masked man opens the house door (no one sees but me because they’re behind the car), points a gun at me with one hand and with the other, puts his finger to his lips in a shushing manner.

    had it ALL. THE. TIME. when i was younger.

  37. JMC says:

    Recurring are dreams like this: The movers arrived nothing is packed. Suddenly we’re all on the road and I’m freaked that something was left behind.

    One time dream that started scary then made me laugh: A man walking towards me yelling at me grabs me. I start running which lifts his feet off the ground. I run him full force into a wall, he loses his grip slumps to the floor and I stand over him saying, “Are you kidding me? Doe you KNOW how much I weigh?”

  38. Mary Werner says:

    With my 3 year old brother beside me in the big back seat of the 1940 Chrysler, we are riding with Dad and Mom to the top of a hill and I can’t see the other side yet. Once at the top of the hill, the car falls into a giant pit of five-foot wide, hairy spiders that pull everyone out and are coming for me. Then I woke up.

    This was a several times a week dream I had for years as a girl before I was 8. I was deathly afraid of spiders and never saw any “gore” in my dreams but having my family pulled away was terrifying. When I was in my forties and was told that abnormal fear of spiders represented your mother I began not fearing spiders as much. Strange. (Mom was not mean to us.)

  39. Debbie from Illinois says:

    I rarely remember my dreams…such a bummer.

    Karen, how is your blackeye?

  40. Patti says:

    I’m sitting at a round table with my boss and 3 male colleagues and they’re all poking at me with their fingers, not in a funny tickling way but in a mean menacing way. I’m laughing uncomfortably and want to run but I don’t.

  41. Julie says:

    pregnancy dreams are da bomb!!!! you know that point in the dream you realize you’re dreaming and then you’re all, “no! wait!….” and then you wake up? didn’t happen for me. i’d realize i was dreaming and then continue on in this super-lucid crazy-arsed imaginary world where things were so real!

  42. Meghan says:

    The car just wouldn’t stop. No matter how much I pulled on the steering wheel and jammed my foot on the break, it just wouldn’t stop.

  43. Kim from Milwaukee says:

    There he stood in front of me…Dennis Leary with a shofar for a *%$#. What was I supposed to do with that?

  44. BethH says:

    The operating room, though extremely brightly lit, is no larger than a doctor’s exam room. As the anesthesia kicks in someone places a large heavy radiation blocking pad over me and I begin to struggle to move, even to breathe, fighting off slumber. But it’s no use, I’m fading, fading…maniacal laughter in the background…can’t move,…can’t breathe…must be dead…

    • whitequeen96 says:

      Oooh, dreams where you can’t breathe might mean you have sleep apnea, where you actually stop breathing for a short time. This can be bad for your heart.

      I used to have dreams where I was holding my breath under water or couldn’t breathe. Then I realized that when I lay on a flattish pillow, my breast tissue sort of slid towards my neck and half-strangled me. (Also not good for the heart.) See if you sleep better on a wedge that holds up your upper body as well as your head. That worked for me. I

  45. Bonnie says:

    Because I am a scholar of creativity, I feel that I can say with some authority (since I even did a TEDx talk on creativity), that your vivd dreams are a sign of your creativity. Steven King has said that he has very vivid nightmares.

    • lizzy says:

      Oh boy – I certainly can believe Stephen King has nightmares – or night terrors! How else could he be so creative in his writing.

  46. Lucie says:

    Recurring dream : I wake up in the middle of the night and I realize this terrible thing is going to happen. I can’t move – not an inch. Something else has control. My body flies up to the ceiling and stops when my face is inches from the ceiling. I hover there a few seconds then BAM! I fall back down on the bed. Repeat – a different speeds. I’ve had this one since I was five. Yuck.

  47. lizzy says:

    OMG, the movers are here and I am not ready. I feel frantic in my rush to ensure the items are put in the correct boxes, or nothing ends up getting broken. I am all over the place like a a caged tiger. What am I going to do-I am not ready, this has to be done. My hair is literally standing up!

  48. Allison says:

    I’m being chased through the neighborhood where I grew up by a giant excavator (yes, the construction equipment, no joke). I keep just out of reach and hide behind stuff, but it keeps catching up until finally I fall down and can’t get up to run any more. I try to crawl to keep away from it until it almost catches me. Then I wake up.

    I’ve had this dream since I was little, although less frequently in adulthood.

    I wanted to sit down on the couch next to a friend but his pit-shund (pit bull mixed with dachshund) wouldn’t let me. Every time i tried to slip on to the couch, his pit-bill head would growl and his dachshund feet would stomp and claw). He was a terrifying dog in his big-small meanness.

  50. Kathy Hartzell says:

    Until I was about fifty, I would regularly dream that I was at a lake in Washingtin State, and as I waded I to the depths, I found a child’s wheelchair embedded in the mud and gravel, with a girl in leg braces, dead, of course, trapped in it. It first occurred after a trip to a lake near Spokane with extended family….in early 60’s. I was twelve. Perhaps my mother and her sister were talking about kids who had had polio? Or perhaps there had been a drowning at that lake, and I overheard the conversation? I never knew why, but it tortmented me for decades.

    My current common dream is that I forget I have rented an apartment, forget to pay rent, get evicted, don’t even remember which apartment it is…..and I have owned my own home for forty years!

  51. naomi says:

    I’m from The Netherlands, so I apologize for the bad English. My reoccurring dream:
    I’m on my way to get to bed, but than I remember I’ve forgotten something. I go downstairs and open about ten big boxes with baby guinea pigs I got a couple of weeks ago. They’re fine, by the way. There’s also a puppy version.

  52. Jennie Lee says:

    I dreamed that I could jump really high, like maybe 100 feet, in slow motion. I’d squat down and jump up, rising slowly up, then down, in a smooth parabola. The landing was soft, with very little impact. During the jumps, I’d see people through their windows, and we’d wave at each other. When I woke up, I almost believed that I could really do that.

  53. julie says:

    I’m trying to catch the ferry…but I haven’t gotten ready. I need to pack but I can’t decide what to take…time is going by.. I have had this one for years….

  54. Jess says:

    More dreams than I would like are centered on my need to use the restroom. Often, I dream I have to go #1 very badly, but all the bathroom stalls are completely open to the room, or have meager dividers that leave you open to the gaze of others, and often its a room that men can go into also. Usually its a locker room with bathroom facilities, or just a large restroom like you would find at a sports stadium, so lots of toilets and sinks and ppl. I spend the whole dream trying to find a toilet with a little more privacy, or trying to wait for a moment when no one else is in the room. Which is funny, because in real life I’m not super shy about bodily functions, and happily they work fine. Another common dream about urinating is that in the dream I’m waking up to go use the restroom, but I never quite make it out of bed or the room, and then fall back asleep again (in the dream). Maybe I need to cut back on the amount of water I drink before bed!

    • I have this exact dream. And while I’m trying to find privacy, I often think I’ve found it and start to pull my undies down and sit on the toilet, but then someone walks in or comes around a corner or whatever. These dreams never seem to correlate with actually having to go to the toilet.

    • tiffany says:

      I have this one often. Usually signals that I need to get up and go.

  55. DanniS says:

    My husband was sleeping with my best friend and I caught them. I was very angry when I woke up….5 years later I found out it was true.

  56. Kristin says:

    I’m building an elaborate prop of the Vasa (old Swedish ship that sank on its maiden voyage in 1628 or so) and I almost fall overboard, realizing that if I did fall overboard, I couldn’t be rescued because the ship is going too fast to turn around and fetch me. Sometime during its construction my model ship has set out to sea with me on it and it doesn’t seem strange.

  57. Sboo says:

    The animatronic wolf from The Neverending Story slowly creeps out of my closet. He bites off any part of my body hanging off the edge of the bed or sticking out from the covers. My head is exempt from these rules because I have to be able to breathe.

    That was my reoccurring childhood nightmare. It got to the point where I would instantly wake up if my foot slid off the edge of the bed. Don’t remember my dreams most times, but have had very intense ones in the audition (I’m a singer), water, cheating, being chased, and sex categories.

  58. Langela says:

    I wake up to find a giant spider lowering itself to my head. I quickly pull the blanket over my head. Aware that I often see this and it is actually a dream, I ask myself if I’m awake. Yes, I’m actually awake this time. I move my head around to see the dark room. Yep, awake. Sure I am awake and need saving, I start to scream to wake my husband. He awakes, terrified (or excited) that I’m being murdered. He assures me it is a dream. I look around again for the giant spider and it’s nowhere. It WAS a dream. I feel horrible for waking my husband. I was so sure I was actually awake!

  59. Langela says:

    Another dream I have is of feeling drugged. I go about my day with my eyes closed, unable to open them regardless of how hard I try. The dream varies in what my day consists of, but I can never open my eyes.

    • This was a big one for me as well–I’m somehow incoherent and don’t feel mentally alert, and keep making dumb mistakes like forgetting where I left my child. I end up begging someone to tell me what’s wrong with me. I don’t have these dreams much anymore, but they were big when I was about 22.

  60. Nancy says:

    So SORRY DanniS, that’s awful. My dreams are so boring and repetitive. I’m being chased and try to scream and no sound comes out or I’m in quicksand and can hardly run away or I forget about baby animals and I never remember if they are ok when I find them. My life is lovely nowadays so I don’t know why I stress dream.
    I always wanted a black eye but never pain. Perhaps I should get a face scrubber? How do you explain that one?

  61. Dawn says:

    I need to practice my flying so I can better get away from the kittens with scorpion tails that are chasing me.

  62. Anti Kate says:

    I’ve moved into a new house and everywhere I turn, there are more hallways and more rooms, it just keeps growing. Some of the rooms are empty, some have furniture and some have, EEEEK!, strange people in them. It’s always a different house. I wake up irritable, and wanting more space in my real house. The end.

    • Karen says:

      I dream that I suddenly discover a whole other room in my house (a den/library) ALL the time. So disappointing. On the flip side I also had a dream once when I first moved into my house that I discovered central vacuum outlets. I woke up and looked behind the bed but it wasn’t there. So the next week I went to Costco, bought the central vac kit and installed it. ~ karen!

  63. Manisha says:

    Here’s one from my past…I need to get out of the house because a tornado is coming through but the big hairy bear is in my way and threatening to claw me….So glad I don’t have that dream anymore, apparently I must have worked something out.

  64. My version of the “not prepared for the exam” dream:
    I’m cooking a very important dinner (either at home or at a restaurant) and I realize the guests arrive in 20 minutes and I haven’t even gone shopping for groceries yet, much less started the dinner prep. So I start trying to cook and prep with what I have on hand, but nothing I do accomplishes anything, and time is ticking away….

  65. Kelli says:

    I have the “teeth” dreams as well as “losing hair” dreams, but I think it’s more literal for me: I have been losing my hair for about 20 years, and it weighs heavily on my mind. 🙁

    To show my age, when I was very young, I used to have dreams of the local milk truck chasing me through the neighborhood…over the rooftops. No idea what that was about.

    Currently, 2 basic themes in my dreams seem to be large rambling spaces, whether it’s a mall, a house, a barn, or an apartment building, that I’m wandering through, or trying to find my way out of. The other is that I get very angry that people don’t understand me, so I’m continuously YELLING or talking LOUDLY and s l o w l y to the other people in my dreams (who are continually ignoring me, not taking me seriously or are just plain stupid).

    I have issues. 🙂

  66. susie heller says:

    last night I dreamt about this hunk who wanted me and found me A+++. Upon awakening, my husband had forgotten my birthday today. Can I go back to bed and finish that dream?

  67. Jacquie says:

    I have night terrors but of course I don’t remember anything about them. I forget I have them and live on my own but it can be a bit of a shock for overnight guests who I forget to warn.

    My recurring dream though since childhood is about being chased by a giant English penny about 50ft tall. That’s it, I don’t know where it happens, can’t remember any scenery but every time I think about the dream, I get a faint weird swelling feeling in my tongue. I’ve got it now.

  68. ellen says:

    Last night I dreamed I went to a celebrity party and was afraid I was not cool enough. After I had been there awhile I realized that the young famous & pretty people there were not very smart so I had sex with one and went home where the conversation was better.

  69. Kate says:

    I am walking down the aisle at my wedding followed by a slew of bridesmaids. we are all wearing a cross between a storm trooper and power ranger outfit – all white. except I have purple leggings – because I’m the bride, duh. we are almost to the end of the aisle and the bridesmaid to my right (I assume this was the maid of honor) yells “GO POWER RANGER’S GOOOO!!!!!” and we went. we turned around and ran. leaving that poor groom standing there.

    mind you, I have never seen the show power rangers and do not even have a current boyfriend.

  70. Kate says:

    a recurring dream I have is that I cannot move… I’m trying to cross the street, or walk down a path, and my body is so heavy I can barely move… I’m so slow… it’s like walking in cement.

  71. Mary says:

    Many of you sound like you are experiencing sleep paralysis which is a state when your mind wakes up before your body does, it can make you feel like someone or something is holding you down, it can be quite scary and I have been known to scream and cry out when it is happening. It doesn’t happen when I sleep on my sides only when I on my back.

    My dreams are either trying to get someplace and people and things keep getting in the way.

    Or I win some strange amount of money($160,000.67) from what looks like a combo pinball/slot machine

  72. Kate S. says:

    A recent funny dream: I was living with my much younger sister’s boyfriend (whom I have never met) in a university dining hall during WWII; he had been discharged after injury; my husband was off at war; but I was carrying on a romantic relationship with this boy and wondered how we were all going to work it out when the war ended. Plus, the university was overrun with abandoned cats and dogs, so we had numerous kittens and puppies, mostly Bassett Hounds, to take care of.

    Now, that said, I’ve never had most of the “most common” dreams you list. The only one I sometimes have is losing teeth/breaking teeth, which I think comes from my deep-seated fear of tooth loss and I do sometimes dream about being chased, but always in the context of a home invasion, one of my other deep fears. I don’t believe in dream symbolism. Often I can pick out where all the silly/odd elements of my dreams came out of my real life–buy manilla envelopes during the day, dream about stuffing a Bassett Hound puppy into one and mailing it overseas that night.

  73. Wendy says:

    I fly often…zip up Brant street (local road near Superwoman), I turn the corner flapping my arms (no cape..darn would have loved the red one) I normally sleep walk when stressed…wake up in the closet. Spouse is not pleased, actually very annoyed that I’ve whipped the covers off of him while I wipe spiders away…still married. I love dreams & nightmares the wonders of our subconscious minds of our excess storage.

  74. Kasia says:

    I have several recurring dreams. My favorite (most of them are not good, but this one is ok) is when I dream Im running. Sometimes Im being chased, sometmes Im just going somewhere, but I always run on all fours, and its soooo much easier and I wonder about the idiots using just their legs, and when I run on all fours, I am SUPER SUPER fast! Everything goes by in a blur, and its so much fun, and I never get tired either!

  75. Shannon says:

    A reoccurring dream. I am driving north on I-5, in oregon, headed to Washington and I’m almost to the bridge when I drive over some bumps and realize there are body parts everywhere. Up ahead the Taliban has taken the bridge and is sorting cars into different lines. I always protest and I always wake up just as they are about to shoot me.

    I blame the news before bed.

  76. Elli says:

    Actual text I sent my little sister upon awakening yesterday: “Last night I kept missing the rowboat to the symphony because guys kept needing me to step in and be their partner at the all-night disco-dancing competition.” Her response: “I HAVE THAT PROBLEM ALL THE TIME”

  77. Karen Jeanne says:

    It’s strange, every night lately I go for a ride… but the random acquaintance who is driving can’t seem to control the brakes of the car in time to stop us from crossing that bridge that is closed to traffic, or driving into that neighborhood that is off-limits. Why can we never stop? I can’t control it, & I’m just along for the ride, taking in the scenery.

    Dreams are weird.

  78. Mike says:

    I nailed my audition for the broadway version of Harry Potter, but now I’m worried people will realize I’m not actually Jonathan Taylor Thomas.

  79. the teeth! always spitting out teeth its so horrible
    ….and it makes me feel great other people have frequent nightmares, i cant watch scary movies because my dreams are so realistic…
    i’m always running from zombies, or there’s a hotel where people check in only to be killed and dissected…
    or worse a surprise ending, i think they caught the serial killer only to visit him in prison to look at his artwork, of course, only to find they have the wrong person locked up and the serial killer is still out there! oh no the prisons power was just turned off! he’s here!……

  80. Suzanne@Le Farm says:

    The water or snow is very deep. As I try to find my way in my car, it is traveling backward and I hit the brakes but it wont stop. It is as if I am blind, as well, driving while I cannot see.
    (I dream this over and over, especially when feeling overwhelmed and out of control!)

  81. Nancy says:

    My calculus final is in a few hours, and I haven’t been to class all semester. Trying to get someone’s notes to look at.

  82. Louise says:

    My brothers and sisters and I are children again. We are swimming in our pool with our pet killer whale and having a wonderful time. Suddenly, the whale grabs one of them and rips him/her to shreds right before our horrified eyes! We scramble out of the pool and look at the blood in the water in absolute shock. But after a while, the whale gets playful again and my sibling decide to go back in the water. I scream and try to prevent them from doing so, but they say the whale is sorry and they are determined to give him another chance. Unfortunately, the scene repeats itself, yet they keep going back in.

  83. LazySusan says:

    I’m on a first date with a tall Japanese guy, and we’ve walked up a mountain to a clearing on the top that’s ringed with rocks and the center is sand, where we find a place to sit and then start catching the eggs that rare birds are laying in the air and are dropping over our area, where we then bury them in the sand to preserve them. Punk Chinese guys on motorcycles come roaring up the mountain and into the sand area going around in circles trying to chase us away and steal the eggs we’ve buried.

  84. Debbie says:

    There is a book in all of this!

  85. Louise says:

    Another dream I often have is that I am somehow skating, beautifully! However, it’s over regular floors in the mall, the library, all sorts of places. I think I’m in socks and I’m able to dance and slide and skate, and it’s so wonderful! I wonder why others don’t do it; perhaps it’s some special talent only I have.

    • Belinda says:

      Hi Louise.

      I have been having exactly the same dream for years. It is the most amazing feeling to move around like that between all the other people and knowing they can’t do it.

      Were you able to find the meaning of it?

      • whitequeen96 says:

        I think it means we’re special! 😉
        Perhaps we’re capable of lyrical happiness, if not in our daily lives, in our dreams.

        • Belinda says:

          Thanks for that, but at the moment I feel everything but.

          I read the following on ice skating when searching skating. It seems that no one except us dreams about skating without actual skates:

          Ice skating is symbolic of graceful, free motion and the power and importance of inertia and balance. If you dream that you are ice skating proficiently, this is an indication of a deep confidence in your ability to accomplish your goals. Furthermore, you will accomplish them well and with ease, as long as you can keep your balance. Each action you take will push your project farther than you anticipate.

          I like your name. I used to think my name should be RaineQueen, but changed it to Raine. Seems we think we are or perhaps we used to be queens in another life. 🙂

          Happy dreaming.

  86. LazySusan says:

    There’s a T-Rex attacking the house! My husband and I desperately scramble for a place in the house we can tuck ourselves into that’s too small for its head to fit into, and far enough tucked in that it’s little arms can’t reach us!

  87. Bonnie says:

    I am violating the rules because I had this dream years ago when I was pregnant: I was home alone and heard someone trying to break it. I ran and was able to lock the door before he opened it. Then, I had to run through the house, getting to each window and door seconds before he did to lock them. Finally, I ran to the kitchen door and was able to see the culprit’s face in the window–my obstetrician. Clearly anxiety.

  88. Nancy Blue Moon says:

    I am in bed napping..it is daylight..I hear a knock at the door..I go downstairs to see who it is..I open the door slowly to find out..it is me..I have had this dream so vividly that I have believed I actually heard knocking and got up to go answer the door..no one is ever there..

  89. Kat says:

    I’m cleaning up from a party, washing the frosting off the cake plate, when the username of a fun person on an almost NSFW site I don’t admit to visiting (that I really do, in real life, visit all the time), appears in the frosting. A guy I’m interested in sees it and asks me if that’s me, but I wake up before deciding upon a) no, but I wish; b) I have no clue what you’re even talking about; or c) a wink of the eye…
    But my recurring dream is teeth flaking off, falling out, growing out my elbows and knees, and my inability to keep track of them

  90. caryl hodgdon says:

    This is so much fun. People have really opened up. Anyone else ever experience thinking you’re awake and your actual surroundings are in the dream. It’s called hypnopompic reverie and once i learned the term i stopped having them…

  91. Safetydog says:

    My recurring childhood dream was that I was with family or friends who would start talking in slow motion, like a record played at the wrong speed. I could talk fine, and would ask them what was going on, and they became more and more threatening, leaning into me with those drawn-out words. Frightening.

    Now I just dream that one of my kids is missing.

  92. Laurie says:

    Dreaming of drowning can mean you stop breathing at night and need a sleep study. Constant nightmares can mean your brain does not develop enough serotonin and can be remedied by taking paxil. How do I know this stuff? When I got my c-pap I stopped dreaming of drowning. When I started paxil I stopped having nightmares. Just sayin’

    • Karen says:

      Hi Laurie. I just wanted to make a note that Paxil hasn’t been shown to reduce nightmares in other people and can in fact induce nightmares. (I don’t actually take Paxil, but whenever someone mentions something about a drug and what it can or can’t do I try to look into it for the sake of readers). Also, nightmares are more likely caused by having too much seratonin. Sorry. I’m sure it feels like I’m picking on you but I’m not. I’m just making sure the information everyone reads is correct especially when it comes to drugs. ~ karen!

  93. Teddee Grace says:

    My sister (who had just survived major major back surgery in real life) and I were in total agreement the time had come to bail out of our test jet, following the instructions we had been provided, and, confidently deciding we’d take a chance on not being sucked into the engines, floated serenely down into a very shallow lake in which many happy families were playing and easily walked out onto a very green grassy bank.

  94. kristin says:

    I am always getting on an elevator thea hospital where I work (but never THE hospital where I work) and something bad happens. Either it falls uncontrollably, or launches upward way too fast, or gets stuck in such a way the riders can’t get out. Last week, I was riding with my family on an out-of-control elevator trip, and a woman from church was riding with us, and she was needing a bathroom in an emergent way. I woke up just before she lost control. Very scary (and gross)! It always makes my next shift at work all the more interesting.

  95. Dagmar says:

    Wow, Karen what a great topic. This is tree days after you wrote it, and much like myself people continue to leave messages.

    Most common dream: didn’t finish the final project at school; didn’t make it to the final exam or just still owe no work and papers , thesis etc to graduate .

    Second common dream: I am being hurt by someone ; whether someone is trying to rape me, or trying to fight with me about something to swindle me ect. BUT I am speaking or yelling and I have no voice.

    Third common: my favourite, it’s me flying over cities and countries life a falcon.

  96. Laura Bee says:

    I walked back to my car after work & someone had taken the snowtires & left it up on blocks. There went any value that car had. I was hoping to scrap it in the spring, but keep the tires.

  97. Beth says:

    I’m really, really late to the comment party but I’ll mention this anyway. I’ve been happily married for nearly 20 years, but I frequently have dreams in which I’m REALLY mad at my husband for something. It’s always something minor, like he laughs at my shirt in the dream, but for some reason, I get furious in the dream and can’t get over it. Often, I’ll wake up cranky with him, and be snippy for a while first thing in the morning, he finds that funny. Which makes me mad. Sometimes, I even yank out the pillow from underneath him while he sleeps and I’ll wake up with a wall of pillows in between me and him. I don’t know why. He’s actually a pretty nice guy.

  98. Joan Linville says:

    I’m really happy when my mom comes home, even if she doesn’t stay long. I never saw her body after she was killed by a train, and she’s been gone so long now. I stil don’t completely trust her because she refuses to tell me (or us) where she works or anything about her life out west when she leaves us again. I just know she has another life, identity and family wherever she is now and loves them as much or more than us and it makes me sad. I worry over when she’ll go away again and try to persuade her to stay. But I’m tired of the chaos for the past 40 years.

  99. Joan Linville says:

    (Real young childhood incidents – my mother used to have me flatten the tin food cans with my feet [shoes on, of course] during World War II for the war effort because they were needed by the government to build war airplanes. I never could understand how the plane could be sturdy and safe if my 3-year-old feet could flatten the metal used to make the planes). Now I frequently dream I can levitate and fly without plane or other support!

    Other disturbing dreams: not being prepared for exams, b/c I never attended classes; can’t run away when threatened and being able to run really between towns; having to pee and no restrooms available.

    run really fast between towns I worked in; having to pee and no restrooms available.
    st between towns for my job; having to pee and no
    restrooms available in building where I worked

    • Joan Linville says:

      Sorry for the extra typing – my NOOK was misbehaving, buts old and probably has some dementia!

    • Sarah says:

      I am not even in school, but I still have the dream that I have an exam and I have never gone to class. I figured it to be a clear anxiety related dream.
      My bathroom dreams are yuck, filled with clogged toilets. I always figured it was my brain’s way of forcing me to wake up when I had to pee.

  100. Joe Bob says:

    I was a cop for 28 years. I seem to always dream about being somewhere in my blue suit doing something, either chasing someone, or being stuck out in the middle of nowhere trying to figure out how I am going to get back to the station house. Many times it is just rambling like a tour of duty with no real theme or purpose. Sometimes I am missing part of my uniform, my gun, bullets etc. It also seems I can’t write, or sign any forms etc.

    Sometimes people are in the dreams who have been dead for many years, including friends, family and coworkers who have passed-on as well as pets I have had, and at previous places I have lived over the years.

  101. Kathy says:

    In reality I did not have several large flower pots against the wall by the front door. In my dream I came to that
    wall from a hallway and the pots contained dry stalks of dead plants. And I could recall how they had been, all
    healthy and green. I can still see the image 20 years later. I got myself to a therapist for a few sessions. We had good talks. I suppose you can die inside in a bad marriage and that marriage had to end and it did. Glad I
    had that dream.

  102. Nancy S in Winnipeg says:

    The first spring I was in my house I dreamed that I decided to take a walk around the neighbourhood checking out other peoples back yard gardens. So I set off shoeless, wearing one sock and my nightgown (the worn, faded one that belongs in the rag bag). Spring hadn’t really come yet, so I was walking around the bits of ice in the back lanes. Then I came to one that was full of puddle and had to turn back – I only had one sock!

    • Karen says:

      LOL. I think it’s funny you remember you were only wearing one sock. That HAS to mean something but who knows what! ~ karen

  103. Laura says:

    I had 2 dreams last night…one of this guy I really like and we were on this trip around water cause his shirt was off and he had a tattoo of a dragon on his back (all though he doesn’t have tattoos in real life). He then wanted to go take pics of something ans he has this black coat on and he wouldn’t let me go with him, but instead told me he set up a boat ride for me. I woke up after that cause od the stupid dog barking…

    My second dream was of this guy showering my sister with flowers, money, ans stuffed animals, and some were where you could record your own message on them and he would tell her how much he wanted her and all kinds of stuff…but in real life she is not single, but still married to her soon to be ex husband and is engaged to someone else…

    What do these dreams mean?

  104. corners says:

    Sometimes if you get an uncomfortable feeling around your butt area, like you have to poop. Mens you probably have to poop.
    You aren’t being violated in your dreams, your dreams are just telling you to go use the bathroom.

  105. Valentin says:

    Okay, I hope this is okay to post here. I’m desperate, okay?
    I woke up not too long ago, I also had a strange dream..
    There were four of us, my boyfriend, his two friends and I,
    We were going underwater to look for a sea creature, I didn’t mind, I was excited.
    So my boyfriend and I headed off our way and the others their way,
    There were a lot of sharks, of course and we went into this building, I remember what he said,
    “If you hear me screaming or anything like that, do not come back for me..”
    I nodded, he and I searched the building separately, I heard him screaming, I stayed put and he shouted and told me to hide, I did so I hid in this small bathroom, I heard him screaming, he sounded so terrified and shocked at the
    same time, he screamed repeatedly “Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god” and so on so on, I heard a women chanting
    and shouting and then I wake up.
    I’m so curious on what he saw, I know it’s just a dream but damn.

  106. terri says:

    I resently had a person in my life go to jail due to drugs and other things, i had this nightmare the other day about him relapsing and going to the point. Where he was ready to kill me and my parents. We gave him what he wanted. E left and stole the car. All of a sudden this huge guy shows up atthe front door trying to kick it down to get to us.. i woke up sooo scared. I dont know what it means . Do it mean i feel like when he come home theors no limit to the things he would.do?

    • Karen says:

      Im not a dream expert unfortunately Terri. In fact I’m not sure anyone is. 🙂 But if I had to guess I’d say its your subconscious telling you you’re a) terrified of him relapsing and b) think his returning isn’t a good thing. ~ karen

What is the meaning of my dream

  108. Sharon says:

    just dreamed that I was strangely angry and decided to hack my hair off in retaliation, I even yelled at my hair and said ” you know what I’m done with this junk it’s to much for one person to handle! In real life my hair is medium brown and all the way to my butt, but in the dream it was dark brown and I cut it to a bob, I could some how SEE the bob, yet my hand holding the knife never even nicked my hair.

    I always have recurring dreams of water+my kids and of course something horrible happens to them mostly always just to my kids and shortly after I always have cops banging on my door. (my kids aren’t ever hurt but still)
    and if I’m moving to a new place and I happen to dream that I’m actually in that house or touring the house, I can pretty much guarantee some force or other will NOT let me get that particular house. the only dreams I hate the most really hate are those where one of my loved ones dies strangely be the way and I some how always walk past or see it uncaring or devoid of ANY feeling, just nonchalant. Then I wake up to run around checking rooms and counting kids and scared spit less.

  109. Nancy says:

    I had a dream that I was adopting a baby and when I would drive to go see the baby I missed my turn and drove off a cliff. Before I hit the ocean the exact dream started all over again 3 different times from the beginning until I woke up. The last movie I watched on TV before going to sleep was Passion of the Christ.

  110. Bai says:

    I had a dream the other night about me carrying a little girl and running away. I don’t know what from, but her and I were both absolutely terrified. I have 2 daughters of my own, but I’ve never seen that little girl before. I woke up the next morning exhausted and apparently had cried in my sleep all night long. I can’t figure out what it meant though. I’ve searched everything on the internet, and I just want to know what that dream meant, or at least something close.

    • Karen says:

      Sadly I have no idea Bai. Dreams of that nature are usually analyzed as anxiety dreams though I think. So there’s probably something you’re feeling anxious about. ~ karen!

  111. alexi says:

    I had a dream about having friends I didn’t even know and then time traveled/sleeped for the past 20-30 years. And they had other friends and made me really sad. We were also in the streets/small place made out of sticks and rugs in Paris

  112. Mia Lucy says:

    Okay so I know you said to write only a few sentences but I have two dreams and I want to know what is wrong with me. I have been questioning my sexuality (I find that I am attracted to both guys and girls). And one dream I recently had I was in the car with a boy and his friend I have a romantic connection with (but he is going to a different college) and then we drove to my old high school and we walked into a classroom where all senior boys were present along with one girl from my school who was the hottest girl in school. She was wearing a revealing shirt and everyone was staring at her, including me. I was jealous but aroused and then I woke up!
    Okay, so then a few days after that dream I had a dream that this guy’s penis went inside me and I had images of attractive men and was aroused. Then I woke up after that dream as well. I don’t know know how to take these two dreams because they were both so close in time to each other? Btw: I’m 18 and will be going to college in a few days.

  113. Rob says:

    For the last couple years I’ve had dreams of all of my teeth falling out and I spit them out by the mouthful. Or I have sex dreams (opposite sex) and I never see her face or climax. I used to be chased as a kid and as a teen I fell. But this teeth falling out is getting out of hand…

  114. Rob says:

    I should be more specific. I hardly remember my dreams when I wake, like most people. But I know my teeth fall and I spit them right before I wake up. It never hurts. Just feels like hard flavorless candy in my mouth and then I spit and wake.

  115. Abbey says:

    So Im kind of looking for some help right now… Today I had a soccer game and I lost and I was very upset about it so when I came home I just slept. And everytime I woke up and went back to sleep was because I have these weird ass nightmares but one actually made me curious.. I felt like my eyes were open, and I shit you not, the room was tilting with the bed and it was tilting backwards where you would get a head rush. Anyways, I couldnt really move but as I saw the room tilting I actually felt myself sliding backwards. I also felt all the blood and tension in my shoulders and arms. If anyone else could help me or let me know what kind of dream this is, Ill very much appreciate it.

  116. Karen says:

    I made a decision of ending a 15 year relationship, and that same night I dream of watching babies at a field. then two women came to give me a bathroom break, I’m walking tours the bathroom and I see a plane landing on the field. Then I’m inside a bathroom with no door and see 2 green snakes inside the toilet . First I’m scare and try to get out through the window but then I grab the snake I scream for help but no one hears me then I just throw the snake through the window. Then I woke up. Hopefully someone still fallow this post

  117. Nina says:

    Oh God, I feel so much panic and fear! I’ve got to scream out right now and warn them!! It’s life or death, I must act quickly. I can’t seem to get sound out! Why is it so hard to move my mouth, is something in it, am I paralyzed by fear. I’ve got to scream out. I don’t know why I can’t scream out. Finally I am screaming it out, but I’m not screaming, why is it such a strangled sound? Too late; I’ve woken up.

    I have dreamed this for years now in all different types of dangerous situations. Twice in the last month; I have woken up screaming out loud. Wonder if this means I am finding my voice or who I am.

    Funny, I didn’t realize there were people that had so many pleasant dreams. Mine are all dramatic. Ummmm

    • Karen says:

      I can relate. I’m a nightmare kindda gal myself, lol. I don’t know the meaning but that not being able to speak or scream one is reallyyyyy common. ~ karen!

      • cat d says:

        its called dream paralysis it where evil entities or an evil spirit is attacking u while you dream u scream n cant make a sound u try to move but cant u just have to pray and they will go away

  118. T says:

    I had a really disturbing dream the night before last and I just came across this site while I was trying to make sense of it by googling other peoples ideas and posts. I had a dream that I was with my mother who I don’t see very often anymore, in the dream she died unexpectedly, I was with her quietly watching while everything happened while I could do nothing about it, I remember seeing her afraid and confused and trying to understand and make sense of what was going on while my mind was searching for explanations too, the jumbled vision I came up with was another family member who is bitter & very angry with her in real life, an older lady who in my dream shot her, although they have a very bad relationship I know that that would never happen so I’m not sure why that was part of the dream, but as she was dying she was very afraid and I was trying to comfort her but it was tho I couldn’t say anything at all it was silent as tho I could only watch, she could not be helped and I just wanted her to be at peace.. I woke up very upset I sat up in the bed thinking about what a horrible dream that was, then I had a strong urge to lay back down and go back to sleep because it wasn’t finished which was very strange, as if there were no question about it I had to go back for it to be finished. Right away I went back to sleep and resumed the dream, this time visually everything was much darker I couldn’t hardly see her but instead I could see many bright and linear colors everywhere in the darkness.. so many colors, I could also hear voices, so many voices, they were quite loud but I could not make out what they were saying, at this point she also knew what was happening and she said I’m afraid, I told her she has to go now and at this point we were both crying, it was so loud I wasn’t sure if she could hear what I was saying. I told her she needs to go towards the light and crossover although the bright light I was looking for was only a dim light that seemed very far away and deep down I was as unsure and afraid as she was but trying to exude a brave & confident front, eventually she just seemed to be gone & then I woke up crying hysterically. I woke up around 4am & it took me a good half hour to calm down. I know I was asleep and I know it was a dream but it was so real and emotional I cannot explain it. Never in my life out of all my strangest dreams i have ever had ive never had a dream like this. While this was the strangest dream and most intense and unexplainable, prior to this my most unforgettable and strangest dream was 20 years ago when I was 15.. I had an ominous dream, I woke up, I wasn’t very upset or crying but extremely confused. I remember calling my mom and telling her about it, I said I was at a funeral and there was a tiny white coffin and everyone was putting pink flowers on it, it made me very uncomfortable. About an hour later one of my best friends called to tell me one of my other best friends 8 week old daughter passed away in her sleep. A few days later at her funeral she had a tiny white coffin with pink carnations. The other similar incident I had involving death occurred while I was awake I was 17, I lived down the street from my grandparents who I was very close to, and while police and ambulances and fire trucks going down the street weren’t anything new, I heard a fire truck/ambulance coming & looked out the window and watched them go by & knew they were going to my grandparents house because my grandfather had died. I called my mother at work and told her to please call my grandparents right away and told her what I feared, I could not bring myself to call because I was afraid of what my grandmother would say when she answered… So now after telling you about those other two incidents you should know I was completely horrified & convinced that someone that I care deeply about had passed away during the night. Around 6 AM I texted the few family members I have that I am still close to, eventually over about an hours time they all responded and let me know that they were OK. I am extremely relieved that everyone’s OK but now I am concerned and confused about the dream. I wish I knew what it meant, is my mother about to die? Am I about to die? Someone close to me in my family? I don’t know I just have to sit and wonder I guess, I currently have two possible explanations for the dream that I can come up with.. My 18 year old son are at odds about him purchasing a motorcycle & ive asked him to get rid of it now or get out, before you judge me you should know that he means everything in the world to me along with my other two children and I’ve worked in the medical field and I’ve seen countless fatalities due to motorcycles he recently got his license it is not the best driver, he doesn’t pay attention enough and he speeds and I’m just trying to look out for him and hope he makes the right decision. I’m very afraid that he won’t and it crushes my heart to imagine his future and him being in an accident and us being estranged. I don’t know if my dream is a representation of the end of our relationship, or another thought that makes more sense to me than anything right now is when my grandmother passed away from cancer about 10 years ago my mother and my aunt were fighting horribly while she was ill, my aunt kept stealing things from the house for fear that after my grandmother passed that she wouldn’t get what she wanted, Everyone knew this and it was very upsetting she also argued horribly with my mother about not wanting my grandmother to have pain pills although she was in excruciating pain because it made her lucid and she couldn’t talk to her. All this was going on I stayed by my grandmother side as much as I could while trying to get my three children to school and deal with my own problems at the end of her life I was by her side as much as I could be. At the very end I laid in bed with her my arm around her part of the time party time just laying next to her trying not to disturb her, later that night while I laid with her she seemingly passed away peacefully in her sleep. All the while her children said in the other room arguing and being hateful with each other. that alone is upsetting I tried to just focus on my grandmother as she was my best friend & as it seemed her own children were fighting in the background as she passed. I don’t know if my grandmother was trying to share with me somehow what it was like while she passed? And who I thought was my mother was actually a younger version of my grandmother? Or if that night a part of my mother died with her? This was very emotional for me & ive been crying almost the entire time I typed. I don’t know but at this point it’s the only explanation I can come up with. Please let me know what u think.

  119. Cheryl says:

    I wake up exhausted because I dream of cleaning and it’s in so much detail that it’s rediculous.. And the other dream is about having to be somewhere and I get lost and can’t find my way . Elevators don’t go where they should, train takes me so far I don’t know where I am .. I wake up and can’t figure out where I am or what time or day it is for a few minutes

  120. Jessica says:

    I always dream of being chased; or chasing someone whom. aparently has my children cause I can hear them screaming… yet can never open my eyes!! I try everything I just can’t open my eyes!!

  121. Natale Q. says:

    Hi, this was a dream I had a few nights ago. I dreamed I was in our apartment (I live with my family) but there is no one around, I’m all alone. I went to close and lock the door, and I notice that the doorknob is on the opposite side of where it usually is (our doorknob is on the right, it has moved to the left now). I go to lock the door, but there is something wrong with the knob. I try fidgeting with it, turning the doorknob and both ends fall out. I notice there is a piece connecting the two doorknobs on both sides that is either loose or broken, and it won’t connect the two. I try multiple times to put the piece back and join both doorknobs together so I can successfully close the door, but it keeps coming apart and falling. I also feel this sense of urgency, like I need to close this door immediately or else my life might be in danger. The atmosphere is also eerily quiet. I like silence, but in this particular dream, it was scary how silent it was – like there was no one else in the world. What was I afraid of, then? I don’t know, but it was a very confusing dream.

  122. Rachel says:

    Every dream I’ve had for the past couple of weeks involves a death or near death experience. High places and situations gone awry. I fall usually to my death or I’m just in a high place about to fall. Last one involved a storm on the ocean and I was inside of a massive blow up thing that was about to go down
    And I was clinging to the side of it

  123. Karen says:

    I dreamed a coworker killed me….we were talking and next thing I realize is blood just gushing out of my chest…I said call 911 and he says ” I’m sorry baby, I have to do this ” And he just held me till I woke up..
    plzzz explain that…!!

    • Karen says:

      LOL, sorry. I have *no* idea! Although a good guess would be you don’t like your job and feel like it’s killing you. ~ karen!

  124. Sylo says:

    I always have this recurrent dream that my husband left me, but actually in my dream we didn’t get married yet, but he left me and i feel lost and sad. In reality my husband works in Africa and comes home every few months. what does that mean?

    • Karen says:

      I’m sorry I’m not a dream expert Sylo. But it sounds to me like you’re just working out dealing with him not being home the way most men in a traditional marriage are. Nothing to worry about. Just your brain helping you along while you sleep. 🙂 ~ karen

  125. Cresencia Fernando says:

    I drempt I was angry with my parents and I left the house. Did not have a place to go met my students to whome I helped alot and asked me to give a place to stay, they ignored and went away. On the way I heard one of my cousins met with an accident and died. Finally one of my friends told me another friend of mine was dead and her parents will accomodate me. I went there and they accepted me to accomadate.

    please tell me the meaning of this dream.

  126. Cat says:

    I have had a recurrent dream of a guy I used to date. For some reason everytime I miss him his tongue feels aweful in my mouth. It feels mushy like.

  127. Chrysta says:

    I don’t have dreams too often, but when I do they are usually about me getting what I want even if I didn’t know I wanted it. Not like sex or relationships. Just like literally being given stuff. It’s been like this all my life. When I was three I’d have dreams of what toys I want or what I want to do for my birthday. Nowadays I’ll randomly find something I like, like incense sticks then I’ll dream about finding thousands of them on the side of the road. I’d wake up from the dream and have no clue if I actually got it or not. It will be just like a memory. However recently I’ve been having bad nightmare of my biggest fears. In the dreams something horrible will happen like a bomb will drop on my town and I’ll have to find a way to survive it. These dream happen like three times a week now. I think it’s starting to really affect me too every now and then I’ll get these nasty fears and I’ll have to have someone with me or I won’t be able to do anything. A couple of weeks ago I had one of my dreams and I shot straight up shaking and slowly walked to the halfway point of my stairs and I couldn’t move because I was so scared. After about thirty minutes I couldn’t take it any more, I had to call my neighbor and have him come comfort me for three hours. I’ve never been so embarrassed in my life. I want to figure it out so I can get it to stop and move on with my life.

  128. Auntiepatch says:

    When I was small I dreamed that I could fly. For the last 50 years I have dreamed that I’m on stage with actors who don’t know their lines and I have to keep “feeding” them their lines. I had to do this in real life and it still scares the bejesus out of me.
    Now that I’m retired, I dream that I’m at work and can’t find parts that I bought, and I know they have come in. I run around the building trying to track them down and, sometimes I stop at that ladies room to do my business, only to find that there are no doors and the partitions are only 3 feet high! AND it is woman/man combined bathroom!
    I often wish I could go back to flying……….

  129. i once had a dream a really weird dream. i was on pijamas on public with my laptop. then i saw my bus i was running to try to catch the bus but i didnt i was too late.then i went home while going home i saw a guy with a grey blanket over his head he tried to stab me but he missed i took his knife stabbed him then i threw my laptop at him then ran as quick as i can home then when i woke up i was scared to go to the streets because i was scared of that the guy [in my dream stabbed me] i dont know what this means…. I AM 12 YEARS OLD AND I HAVE NYCTOPHOBIA [It is triggered by the brain’s disfigured perception of what would, or could, happen when in a dark environment] i am really scared and dont know what to do CAN SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE

  130. Rain says:

    It was a horrifying chase by a serial murderer that was ever illusive, until my boyfriend let him in to our apartment unknowingly and he accidentally left his phone behind. Though I was afraid for my life, I began hunting him down through the numerous revealing texts and email trails in his phone; the real break occurred when I ran into the former serial case detective at the local gyro shop – I hugged him tightly and said, “It’s happening again…”, and we booked it to my car, only to find the stalker revving up to run me over… Stopping just before he hit me, I jumped in onto his lap, showed him his phone saying I knew EVERYTHING… and he began to bargain for HIS life and freedom. Then I woke up, hoping to fall asleep and finish this amazing, action-packed thriller!

  131. mariam says:

    I came across your site while looking for the meaning of a dream I never had before. I dreamed that I dreamed I was eating my own feces with a spoon. I discovered what I was doing and thought, why am I eating this? I woke up from that dream within a dream and then from the overall dream.

    I also dream a lot that I have forgotten to feed my chicken. I used to have a Banty as a pet. My fave is the dream of flying away while people bothering me on the ground get smaller!

  132. Pam says:

    I have two reoccurring dreams since I was little one is that I am in a old house that I used to live in and I’m hiding out & the new owners are coming home and I’m sweating and trying to hide so they can’t see me.
    Another dream I have is is someone is chasing me and I’m trying to think of a plan, My kids are asleep upstairs and how to get the kids out of the house without the people killing me or hurting the kids and I play this over and over in my head how I’m gonna get the kids out safely, and sometimes I can fly in my dreams that happens a lot actually and they can’t reach me because I’m flying so high.

  133. Adriana Morales says:

    My dream was that my family and i were talking about my grandpa’s death,when we going to visit his grave.It was a building to watch movies so we gave the lady our tickets went inside…..After that the WHOLE building was on fire and a white bird came out,then i just woke up frightened….

  135. Xanadu says:

    Hello! So this just happened and to be honest im a little creeped out by it because i never really have these sort of horror dreams or scary dreams. I forgot how the dream started but i remember running down a road with my family and we were running to a house being chased by (this will sound stupid but) ZOMBIES. ZOMBIES like hundreds of Zombies. im not even kidding you right now. I remember turning my head back at them and seeing my younger sibling calling for help so i ran back to get them and caught them up to my dad and they went inside the house i mention, then i remember my mom calling for help and i ran back to get her and then i woke up. Seeing it was really late i went back to bed. Only to have a dream of zombies AGAIN. This time it started with looking for a sign saying ‘ vexot exit ‘ whatever the *bleep* thats supposed to mean. I don’t even know what a vexot is and its not a street name I’ve seen in real life. We found it and then i remember going into the house and my family was gone after that for the rest of this horrible experience. The house im talking about looked like a blue house litterly from ‘ Road to avonlea’ which is a little house on the praire type show lmao and when i went inside my friends and their family were in it. I asked if i a could stay but their parents said no so i ran out the door and looked for my ipad mini ( i don’t know why…) i saw our family car and looked in the windows and saw a infant as a zombie and a man laying in the trunk as a zombie. Really weird… I banged on the window to see if they were alive (because i got some skills from the hit show The walking dead. You cant just wing that door open un-armed like a crazy man of Borneo ) so i banged the glass and i saw the man moving so i ran away and i ran down a road that was similer to my grandmothers dead end road and the way it looked. I ran past a pad ( like a feminine product pad) just in the road. Sittin there. ALSO REALLY WEIRD. I can’t explain that any better then the zombies. Oh i forgot i think i remember walking up to this house prior to this second time before but nobody seemed to be home just to let you know. But anyway i walked up to this house and knocked on the door ( for a second time) i heard nothing and the lights were off from the windows view. I noticed two other door so i opened the one closest to me and called ‘ hello?’ Into the house and nobody answered. The house seemed like a house i been in before in real life but i can’t be sure. Anyway, i heard rustling around and i got scared and this woman (maybe around 60?) walked around a bedroom door and walked towards me zombie-like. She also looked like someone i seen before. She looked like martha stwert a little bit lol. and i think she might have collapsed to the ground i forgot kinda … but i shut that door and hualed butt out of there! and then i woke up. And thought to myself ‘ WOW WHAT DOES THIS MEAN’ and instantly grabbed my ipad to google it. I guess you could say im young now im not an adult yet. Ive had some scary dreams i still remember when i was Very young too. I looked up stuff about dreaming of zombies and being chased by zombies ( nothing for the people that acted like zombies like the martha lady) but it said that im running from problems and etc etc and that isnt helpful at all i don’t have problems. Siriously i don’t like no problems at all. Im not bullied. My family is a wonderful family. I live in a nice place. I have nice friends. Like no problems. So that was very unhelpful. Maybe someone can relate to my story? Im really mad too because i woke up 2-3 times. Really anoyying lol

    • Xanadu says:

      Just to add this on I’ve been watching walking dead for a long time and it doesnt scare me at all and ive never had this sort of dream before so its not because of the tv show Lol

      O.K. for real, I have NO idea about that one, lol. ~ karen! (not a zombie, martha stewart or maxi-pad)

When some guy you think you who it is sits next to you and holds you as you cry telling you its okay the static stops and you can’t hear anything but that voice and then all of a sudden you have uo eyes beat red from crying and your looking at the celing trying to remember who that guy was..? Please I’ve had the same dream about 37 times and I have bad anxiety. So not knowing is killing me.. please help.

  140. Geno Robledo says:

    Geno needs mad help. My dream goes into mad details. This is how it all began, I fell asleep and was on a rollercoaster ride. I got off and headed home but ended up seeing the middle school marching band playing a tune but all you here is the drumline. I started to walk home again and went to my room. I heard the voice of the girl I like; I go to check and she was getting inspected by my parents in the living room. She had hickeys all over her body except her face. (P.S, this girl doesn’t know my parents and me.) My parents then offered to take her home. I asked to go with and my dad said yes. Out of know where, I take my bike and end up at the local park. My dad calls me and asks where am I. He had already dropped the girl I like off. I told him ok then hung up. I then see friends with a drill crane. They start drilling the ash fault and I was curious. I keep getting in the way but I am wearing the same pajamas as I went to bed with, except, I was wearing slippers. The start the drill but I get another call from my dad. I jump across the drill and my pg’s pant legs came up and every spark hit my foot. I have never been burned by a spark before and I felt the pain like it was real. I start cursing up a storm and blaming everyone around me even though it was my fault I got hurt. I walk away a few seconds later like nothing happened. My dad asks what happened. I told him nothing and I ask him why. He said I was supposed to meet him at the barber even though he never told me to. I start waking up with sadness because there was stuff I wanted to give the girl I like. Example of that was a teddy bear. I just stare at the teddy bear. Then I wake up. Please, I can use some help here. I have dreams that tell a story very often.

    I had a dream, where I was stuck in a basement. Whith someone, but when I woke up I completely forgot who I was with, but I knew that they were helping me. I was being chased by someone. So anyway.. We were stuck in a basement, and then we saw Windows. For some weird reason we took off our shoes. Then I started to crawl out the window. There waiting for me was my chaser. I think it was a man, but I’m not sure. When I woke up I didn’t remember anyone’s faces.

    I had a dream where I was being chased down a dark alley by a man with many tatoos and he had a long beard. I one part I got away from him and I was hiding behind a wall. I pulled out a small mirror or shattered glass whichever it was and caught sight of him. Unfortunately he saw the glass or mirror. He began to chase me again finally catching up to me and grabbing my throat tightly in his hand. I woke up sweating and crying. Then the next day I was walking through walmart and saw the same guy with the long beard and the tattoos sitting on the bench by the girls restroom he was staring right at me. His gaze never left mine until I ran to my mom. I am 16 and this happened three months ago. What exact;y does that mean???

    I was dreaming that me ands my whole family cousins, aunts, uncles everyone was out by a big lake. We were sending out boxes full of memories and we were letting them drop to the bottom. Well I was one of the people that got to push the box out into the lake well when it sank to the bottom I fell with it. I started to drown and hoping someone would come save me. It felt like life time, b4 I was brought up. My dad and cousin had to do CPR on me to bring me back to life. When I woke up I started to scoot my way back away from the water but my family acted like nothing happened they just laughed it off and made me feel like a outsider that I made it all up. I woke up crying just because it felt so real and my heart was beating fast with my chest feeling extremely heavy.

    I used to be afraid of nightmares to a pint where I had stopped sleeping in my room alone. I’d find excuses to fall asleep on the couch or I’d watch educational videos on YouTube till my eyes would force shut just so I didn’t have to fall asleep in silence. My nightmares consisted more of fires and my body detaching itself from my physical body. I’d feel trapped and would struggle to get back into my body on my bed and freak out that in the waking world I died. And I was trapped.

    Over the last 6 months something has changed dramatically in my life. I’ve been travelling and began meditating.. not to overcome fear but as a lifestyle choice. Meditation helps me declutter my mind. Infact I tend to meditate myself to sleep.

    Ie meditation of breathing.. as I sleep I focus on my breathing embrace a sense of peace and bam. I’m knockout.

    The shocking bit is that my recording dreams are now me seeing nightmares but somehow they change into nightmare happening to other people not me and the story then somehow changes. My recent reoccurring one was people being swallowed by a giant shark… it was gruesome and I seen the water stained by blood from the cut but then magically it turned out that these people went into the sharks mouth to take out a piece of a giant piece of lemon that was killing him.

    It’s then a whale.. or two actually two whales offering me to ride on their back to take me somewhere. I was timid and afraid and kept saying no. They told me it’s fine and to trust them… the second whale spoke and said GO. So I did I jumped on the first whales back and we went for a swim. It was euphoric I couldn’t stop laughing.

    Sometimes I wake up laughing now. It’s a massive change from waking up in a state of fright.

    I think our dreams represent out subconscious fears. Try focus on how you feel.

    Ie I thought this dream tells me to GO and do the things I want to do. Start the business and not worry about it.

    But as I’m writing this it can also mean that i should consult my doctor about my reoccurring back pain …what if there’s soemthing else that’s causing it?

    I’ll be doing both:)

    I had a dream that I was having dinner with my teacher and a few of my friends but the rest of the people I didn’t know and then someone or something got one of the people I didn’t know really mad and they had powers all of the sudden he was trying to kill everyone there I was running and I got out but one of my friends didn’t so then me and these two other girls where running and my eyes started to turn purple and I didn’t know what was happening then the girl that was next to me started to have these sparkles follow her and then the girl in front of us just stared at us and then said “I don’t know where we are or how to get back to my house” then I replied “I don’t know either” but the I started to recognize where I was at then I said “you can come to my house and my parents can take you home” then she started to walk with me well run with me and the other girl. But as we were walking I was starting to get confused because I didn’t know what was going on with the girl that was next to me there sparkles practically following her and at this time i didn’t know that I had purple eyes. But then we got one a certain street and the girl with the sparkles following her just stopped and stared at this one house and said “I almost died there” and at this point I was already scared because scared because we were being chased by A maniac and this girl is saying she almost died at this house and I was wondering how did I get myself into this situate. Then a girl wearing all black approached us and said “funny seeing u around here” to the girl with the sparkles. The girl with the sparkles didn’t reply but she looked at me and said “carriage” then I said ” um ya I guess” I was really confused and the girl other girl that couldn’t find her house just disappeared but I wasn’t really worried about that I was more worried if I was gonna die today or at that moment even so then the girl looked at her finger and then all the sparkles around her just tured into a carriage so we got in it and the girl wearing all black got into the carriage and just started talking to the girl with the sparkles but I couldn’t really understand what they were saying so then the girl with the sparkles said “can I have directions please” to me and I said “yes” but then It was like she read my mind because she just went straight to my house and got out with the girl in black and my dad wasn’t out side so we started to walk.

    Then I woke up.

    What does this dream mean?

Then the stove keeps turning on and I look out the window and cars are pulling up with people I don’t know and all their cars are full of clothes I can’t seem to move fast enough and you dog is running around. I wake up before knowing if I got everything in the car.

( I keep having this dream each night well it’s my second night now)

    I dreamed that I was asleep in my childhood bedroom comma and was woken up to noise in the living room. I opened my door and there were people ripping up my brand new carpeting. When they saw me they jumped over the staircase ran away. Then I notice that my grandmother’s Diamond Channel set ring had been stolen from my hand. My mother had passed away last year, and I had found that in a tiny box in her dresser. Then someone called me and said I had to come and get this lady’s baby, because she had not come home from work.
