I always had the "forget the combination/schedule" dreams.

The one thing I never had was the nekkid dream. One morning I was in a hurry to get the kids ready for school and I just walked out of the apartment with everything on but my skirt. Thank goodness I had on a slip! I did a fast look around to see if anyone saw me and then a fast dash back inside to finish dressing. That was not a dream.

LOL, DLC!

I didn't have the nekkid dream, either, although I used to dream that I'd forgotten my shoes.

I've had the forgot my schedule dream. I also have a recurring dream of crossing a bridge and, while walking across, realize that the slats in the bridge are missing, and I have to balance on a cable or whatever to get across.

I'm not crazy about bridges in waking life...

ROFL!!! I've left the house a few times in my slippers, but never in a slip.

I still have the dream where I'm completely unprepared for the test, where I don't ever remember taking the class, and I can't understand a word of it. ==;-o

I have a recurring dream where I'm on a rollercoaster but not in one of the cars. I'm on a stool, a swivel stool of sorts, no back to it, and I'm trying to hold on underneath the seat while riding the coaster. I wake up feeling anxious. :-/

OMG...I've had the roller coaster dream!!!

Often, too, the roller coaster is perched high above a city, an amusement park right in the middle of downtown. How bizarre, Melynn!!

Re: the test-taking dream...

I had a dream once that I sat down to take an exam in a class I hadn't attended, even though I had been registered for it, and there it was...one essay question...

<i>Write everything you know about Russia.</i>

All I could think of was, "They call it The Bear..."

Dreams, dreams, and more dreams

I have a recurring dream similar to the test-taking one, except in mine I am either back in High School or back in College, and they find a reason why I can't graduate! It usually takes me a minute after waking to remember that I graduated both. LOL
The most horrifying dream I ever had was when I was in high school. I dreamt that my younger sister's best friend, who was also our neighbor, was raped and murdered in a wooded area near our house. The person who did it was her brother. As soon as I woke up to get ready for school, I called her house, but didn't get an answer. When I got on the school bus, there she was...I literally started crying.

The freakiest are the premonitions I have thru dreams...too many to post (like you aren't tired of reading this already). The absolute most freakiest of them all was the dream I had about the TWA flight explosion, two nights prior to the actual events. People may not believe me, but I was so upset by this dream, that the next day I told all my roommates and a few friends...when the explosion took place, I wasn't the ONLY one in utter shock...in my dream I was a French student on my way to Paris, trying to get my classmates off the plane, screaming for them not to go that something bad was going to happen, only to have everyone on the plane look at me like I was crazy. Somehow I ended up outside the plane, screaming as I watched the plane explode. I should mention that I never took French, I was a Latin student; at that time I had never flown, was not planning an upcoming trip, and had not even discussed flying prior;and had not had any convos about Paris prior. I had no connection to any of the ill-fated passengers. Just remembering that still gives me shudders.

Stophie, do you have premonitions while you are awake too? I do, and sometimes they are very disturbing. Other times they are reassuring. I remember when I was pregnant with my first baby, I knew there were problems with her. I went into labor at six months and lost her, at home, alone. It was not a good experience. While I was pregnant with her, I got this "message" ( There's no way to describe what it really was. Call it a 'knowing', if you must.)that I would have another child and it would be a boy. When I was pregnant with him, I knew all would be well with him, even though I had toxemia and had him early. He only weighed 4 pounds, 13 ounces, and they told me he couldn't come home until he weighed 5 pounds. He came home with me at 4 pounds, 9 ounces, and now he weighs around 190. :-)

The one thing I have learned over the years is to listen to my dreams when I remember them, and to ask my subconcious what they mean. When you are ready to learn what a strange dream means, your subconscious will let you know- usually in a blinding flash. At least that's the way it's been for me.

I don't think the interpretation of intuitive thinking and dreams is quite the same. Dreams generally have symbolic meaning, if you chose to believe that. Intuition, however, if a sense of something else. I have had for years a recurring dream where my sister is climbing a ladder, and it's falling across the Ohio River. I try and try to keep it from falling and I'm so frustrated because I can never stop the fall. Interpreting that dream indicates that I know my sister will always try to reach higher in her abilities to learn, but that no matter what I do I can't help her anymore. It leaves me with a sense of loss and emptiness. However, when I had a premonition that something was wrong with my son, it was based on real feelings that were not symbolic so much as intuitive. I didn't know what was wrong, only that I had to find him. My instincts were right, he was in trouble and he needed help. No symbolism there. Some people believe dream interpretation is a silly game, but I've used it to help figure out a way to deal with problems before. It worked then, so I keep using it as another tool in my madcap life.

I think sometime intuition can "use" your dreams to get through to you if you're not listening otherwise.

Monday night I had one of those crazy dreams where everything keeps changing.. like it's a whole bunch of random scenes put together with even less sense than a "normal" dream. The one part that stuck with me really firmly was taking my daughter to a doctor, a normal seeming doctor in a very weird setting. More like a classroom than an office. Anyway, this doctor told us that Kendra was sick because she was not getting the love she needed. She gave us a powder to add tiny amounts of to her food, told us NOT to give her anything with echinacea in it, and pointed to a spot on her chest where we were supposed to put an acupuncture needle twice a day.

Kendra was scheduled (in waking life) for a chiropractor/integrated medicine session where they were planning to work on neuro-emotional issues. I told my husband (who was taking her) about the dream and to have the therapist look at issues of scarcity. Sure enough, without either the doctor or Kendra having received any prompting, an issue about not feeling loved came up and where it was stored in the body was the bronchials (she has asthma) and the "reflex" point for that is right where I saw the doctor touch in the dream.

Just in case, I am not giving her any echinacea either, though we often do to avoid infections when her lungs are not working well..!

You're right of course, Kathe. We can use our dreams in much the same way to understand other aspects of our lives, too. Very interesting story. I like that. Hope she feels well soon.

I dreamed that someone I did not invite called to say she was visiting me in September. I said well does this mean you won't be coming in October for the visit I never invited you to? She said Oh of course not silly I will be staying right on through October. eep

I dream: about flying.
telekinesis and visiting artist of all kinds.

Of elevators made of sod, and no sides. Of stairs that lead no where. School dreams are usually I am lost or have the wrong book for that class.

Of houses that have multiple kitchens and while dreaming this I am thinking... mess up one and move on to the other.


Of golden forest and limestone brooks and a very hunky native man. lol

My nightmares are just as most ppls, I would imagine. Maybe not.

Most dreams can be interpretted but to understand them almost all symbols need to be in some kind of context. Just remembering you dreamed about something is like only smelling one spice in an Italian resturant. You might get it and it might get lost in the mixture.

Terri's dream is pretty clear: she hopes this person never comes to visit.

antiana though has an interesting array of elements...and in someway they are all connnected. To dream of flying is an indication of ambition. Elevators and stairs both indicate life changes...up is change for the good and down is change for the bad. Simply standing in the elvevator or on the stair means you just don't know where to go. Because the elevator is made of sod there is a possibly of imminent change of residence. Perhaps someone is moving out or in, or the dreamer is thinking of moving. Dreaming of a forest indicates some confusion, and the golden color possibly means to not judge appearance or that some things are different than they appear to be. The native man would seem to indicate the dreamer is into wish fullfullment, more likely though, he is an idication that she knows there is change on the horizon and is looking for someone to share the burden of the unknown.

Dreaming of a house indicates relationships, and kitchens represent health. To leave a dirty kitchen and move to another in the same house seems to mean health issues worry the dreamer but she ignores them as long as she can and moves on in spite of the people around her. She would rather maintain the relationship than worry.

So, knowing your dreams in their context would make it easier to learn to understand them and thus help you deal with your life....I think.

Don't we all, antiana! Shoot once a hunk gets undressed..you know he's going to leave his underwear where ever he kicked them off. He's probably not going to put the seat down. He'll likely get into belching contests. He's still going to wake up with bed head and bad breath. Hunks are one of those things that almost always look better than reality, but in the end reality will out.
