Have you ever had a recurring dream. You know, one that you dream over and over and over again in your sleep.
Maybe it is because you are terribly upset about something in your life and you have tucked it so deep down inside that the only way to let go is in your dreams.
Maybe it is because you are so happy about something that you continue to think about your happiness in dreams at night.
Maybe you dream about something that happened during the day or week and how it could have turned out different.
Some think that what we dream about reflects certain things about our life.
For example, have you ever had the naked dream? You know the one where you go to work/school/store and realize that you are naked or partially dressed? They say that we dream that because we have some type of guilt or feelings of inferiority in our life.
Someone once told me if you dream about death it means someone is pregnant.
As a kid we lived in a house on a hill. It was a pretty steep hill. Many nights I dreamt of starting to run down the hill and about halfway down I would just lift off and fly. I read that that meant I was at peace with my life and carefree. I guess since I dreamt that as a child, I was probably pretty much carefree and peaceful then.
There was a time when I was "haunted" by really scary dreams. Dreams of being chased, dreams of not being able to breathe, dreams of hiding from someone scary. Some of these dreams were night after night and would change slightly each night as I got to a certain point in the dream. I can only imagine those dreams meant that I was in an uncomfortable or unsettled point in my life.
Have you ever had a recurring dream? Did you ever look up the meaning of it? Did the meaning apply to your life at that point? Do you dream in black and white or color?
