Online Dream Log

  1. Thought this would be fun.
    I know that some people write up dream logs in a book and some that want to write one but are too lazy to start.

    So here is a good place to start and just write one in when you feel like. One of the best things about it is that its on the most part pretty anonymous, well unless someone knows you in real life and knows your screen name.

    Have fun, and lets read about some bizzar, wierd, sick, happy, sad, __________ (insert emotion) dreams.

    Let me start this thing off.

    I had a pretty scary dream. I live in the NYC region and a few weeks ago a man fell 12 stories to his death.

    I guess this is what fuled my dream.

    I was at some type of hotel and was at some type of wedding party and one of my friends wanted to use the elevator and as I saw the elevator open there was no elevator there and my friend took a step and fell down. I was standing fairly close to him and tried to grab him but it was too late. So I wanted to go down and help him. So I took the elevator down (BIG mistake). I went in the elevator and it was acting up and it went zooming up to the top floor and started to fall down. I could feel all g-forces in my dream. From going to the top floor all the way down to the bottom floor. Just pretend you are on a roller coaster.

    Then I woke up.

    Anyway that was my dream. Whewww what a rush.

    I had a very disturbing, scary dream last night: My husband and I were in the house and could hear someone knock at the back door. We got really quiet, pretending no one was home. We heard someone trying a key, and they were able to get in, but were invisible. It began attacking my husband, and I escaped out the front door, ran down my street crying and calling out "help me" in a quiet, hoarse voice. Nobody could hear me and one person saw me, but ignored me. The invisible thing began chasing me, and the only way I could see it was it was carrying our floormat from the back door, and it flapped as it ran toward me. The invisible being then began to kiss me, but I was somehow able to get away.

    When I returned home, my husband was okay, but we knew "IT" would return and that we could not keep it out of our home even if we changed the locks.

    This dream felt very symbolic to me, spiritually. I'm a Christian and believe God can speak to us through our dreams and many other ways, and in my devotions this morning, I happened to be finishing up reading the book of Ephesians in the Bible. In chapter 6, there's a verse that hit me right between the eyes as far as this dream goes:

    "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (That invisible being in my dream.)

    The comforting part of the next verse says, "Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand."

    I'm taking the dream as a warning, and shared it with my husband-- not to be paranoid, but to be prepared and watchful. I'm also open to anyone else's interpretations. And no, I'm not psychotic. Or am I?

    Yes, cwissy-- It's REALLY cool! What's even cooler is I wasn't even looking for comfort at that point, since I pretty much understood the spiritual aspect of the dream. So, when I saw where I was in my daily Bible reading, and that it "just happened" to explain my dream, and then gave direction AND comfort, I was blown away...

    I also want to add that usually my dreams make NO sense at all, they're often vaguely and sometimes downright disturbing, and I can barely explain them due to all the twists and turns and casts of thousands.

    Okay, we're talking serious recurring dream here. First of all, I moved out of my parent's house when I was 17, I am now 26 (this was amicable and there were no bitter feelings). Secondly, I am completely moved out, I haven't have anything of mine in there house for years. Thirdly, my parent's sold my childhood home 4 years ago.

    So why, you might ask, am I constantly having dreams that I am moving away from home. I am costantly in my old room packing and discovering things in my old room that I had forgotten I had. The word "closet", often comes into play.

    Facinating, must have real metaphorical value.

    I have no clue why I would keep having this one.

    I am in a meeting with a bunch of administration (hospital).
    I leave to go to the bathroom and I walk back into the room. Noone is there. Well, noone living. The room is full of body bags! With bodies in them!

    This dream starts off wierd then becomes normal and boring.

    I am at this place and i guess i maybe working there or something. It seemed like a huge Candy factory or something. Well the ones that you can dream up nothing like the movie. Its more like the Fruit Roll up commercials that they have on TV. There were HUGE clear tubes all over the place and there were balls with spikes that were bigger than basketballs. I think that they were candies or something. Because it was really colorful. THen one of the tubes got stuck and there was a huge scare on how the factory wasn't working right. There was steam and alarms going off everywhere. So then i open up this panal to check to see what was going on and maybe able to fix something. I see a flowing multi color lava like state that the candy is before it gets hard. Didn't see any problems but all of a sudden the tubes just cleared itself and all was right.

    Then i guess i flashed to another dream.

    I was driving around from where i work at now and always try to find out short cuts to get home. Well i am trying to find a short cut home and see this coffee shop, didn't mean anything to me just passed it was a bunch of other stores. Well I didn't find a faster way to get home so i back track and see the same coffee shop and decided to get coffee ( <------- Must be a real coffee nut). I guess i parked the car, and started walking to the shop but it seems kinda dark in there. The shop seems really small. Its about the length of a car and only 1 story high. I open the door and see that there are chaires up on the tables so i thought that it was closed. Next thing you know i am hear voices comming from above.

    Right here is kinda wierd the scenery immediatly changes and i am inside and i can here this person talkiing on the phone to a friend. Then i hear some foot steps come down the starirs and a 2nd pair of foot steps comming down the stairs. I see its an old guy and a girl come down the staris. The girl then says to me come up stairs dinner is ready. I just immediatly said oh ok comming. Then the father and daughter had a conversation about his eye doctors appointment he just had today. The father said that everything was fine.

    Then i woke up.

    Pretty nice dream

    There was smoke, steam, coffee, dark in a factory setting, to out in a small town with the sun setting.

    I had a car wreck over 20 years ago. The wreck did not give me a concussion, but I had to have 18 stitches that ran across my upper left forehead into my hairline. That night I started having these dreams and I had them off and on for the next 8-10 years.

    The dream would start out with a black amorphous shape falling from the ceiling into bed with me. I would scream and scream, but no one in my family would come to help me. Then I would jump out of bed and go running through the house, screaming at the top of my lungs, but family members would act as if I wasn't even in the room with them. And all during these dreams, I would think to myself, "This is only a dream. All you have to do is open your eyes and it will be over." But it was as if my eyes were glued shut! Finally, I would pry my eyes open and the dream would be over.

    After several years, another twist was added to the dream. I would pry my eyes open and the dream would be over. I would get out of bed and get a drink, or go to the bathroom. Then I would realize I wasn't awake and I still couldn't get my eyes open because I wasn't awake! I was still in the dream! I would go through several "fake" awakenings before I was able to open my eyes for real. Thankfully, I haven't had that dream in over 10 years.

    I also have a lot of dreams with tornadoes in them. The tornado is never threatening in any of my dreams (why, I don't know. We live in Kentucky and have been in the basement a lot during this past week of bad weather). I always look at the tornado in my dreams with respect and awe, but I never feel threatened by it. And the tornado never gets closer to me than a mile or two.
