I used to all the time when I was much younger. Now, I don't tend to have those dreams anymore or at least not so much that I wake up from them and
remember them like I used to.
Nowadays, if I am going to have a dream that means something, it will wake me up and it will haunt me, but it will not seem to have a coherent
narrative. Instead, it will more or less seem to be comprised of seemingly random, symbolic elements.
I wonder if perhaps having come to terms with myself, my place in the world and where things are in relation to myself has more or less rendered the
other type of dream less necessary for my psyche?
That doesn't mean I don't ever have slightly scary things happen to me in my dreams. I dreamed months ago of being in a car that was being swept out
into a flood. I was in it with other people and none of them seemed to notice or care even when I was screaming that we all needed to get out of the
car. Of course, I was in the very back of the vehicle.
See, I don't think that dream was telling me I was in danger of drowning. I think it was telling me something else. I think the elements were all
symbolic, even the landscape I saw. And it was much more typical of my dreams. Likewise, I never see people I recognize in my dreams except for one -
my ex boyfriend who was enormously psychologically abusive. I tend to see him in my dreams a lot and he's always trying to get back together with me
in those dreams or despite my feelings of revulsion, we are back together, but the dream never makes narrative sense.
So, maybe your apocalyptic dreams are a symptom of your psyche trying to tell you something about you or your life?
