A RE-POST FROM LAST YEAROne of my coffee buddies and I were talking about dreams this morning. She had a dream that she was driving in her car and two people crossed in front of her car. One reached right in the front and touched the dashboard. Only then did she realize that her car had no windshield.
We discussed the many possibilities that this could symbolize. We concluded that she didn't have a protective shield up. Her guard was down.
I find it strange that in 28 years without my mom I have never seen her in a dream. Twice I have dreamed that she was on the phone but I have awoken both times before talking with her.
As a child I often dreamed that I was flying through the air. It was like swimming actually. Arms pulling me around the sky like strokes in a pool.
As an adult I have had nightmares once in a while. My BB guy has had to wake me up a couple of times when I am making very strange sounds in my sleep. It turns out I was trying to scream but nothing was coming out.
I have struggled with lack of sleep for a while now. What is really harmful about that is that I don't dream then and that makes your brain act very strange after a few days. It isn't healthy. When I take melatonin for a couple weeks to reset my sleep patterns my dreams are always about current things going on in my life. Usually they are specific to that day's events. Otherwise, when I am not taking melatonin my dreams are random.
How about you? Do you have nightmares? Do you dream in color? Do you fly?
