I though for most of my adolescent life it was self fore-filling prophesy or synchronicity, but now as an adult with a deeper understanding of the universe, I no longer believe in coincidences.
I hope everyone understands the emotional side to this, those that know me can attest to my bitter skepticism on many subjects, I'm not one that believes in everything I see. More and more I feel worried about the future and sometimes I feel this is tied to my destiny.
Am I foretelling my own death with this one?
However as its reoccurring and has happened most of life it could be a vision of the future or a vision of the past death but using images of things that you will recognize from this life.

Thank you AB, I'm usually the one that others ask for help when interpreting dreams, but in this case when my emotions get in the way that becomes a bad idea.
This dream does in fact parellel my life, I have found great success at an early age, only to watch it burn just as fast. I have lived so fast and furiously that sometimes there is no room for brakes, the only way I can stop is to hit the wall. At one point one of my previous employers endearingly called me 'Juggernaut' for my work attitude.
Thus comes the problem, I know this, it has never been a mystery to me. I realized my Gemini nature(extremes) and have used it more then once, even in predatory fashion. I am not ashamed to admit this for it helped me evolve above it. I don't think I could have reached this point spiritually unless I walked that path first.
Years ago due to my persistent psychoanalysis of my own dreams they even morphed to full abstraction. They looked like a world painted by Matta, my own subconscious was fighting itself to keep the secrets secret from me. It remains that way to this day except for a few random dreams including this one and that's what frightens me.
I always felt dreams were a form of subconscious release, then I started playing around with lucid dreaming to take control. Every step I took brought me closer spiritually to my goal and soon after my mind upped the ante. Taking back that control.
So now I'm left with this mess. Is this dream about me or something else? It would seem an obvious decision but I can't help but feel like it's almost been planted there deliberately waiting for me to confront it. About every 6-9 months it comes back, shows itself a few times, then leaves. I am a very rational person and this bothers me to no end.
I always felt connected to the world we are in more deeply then some others. Lately I've felt its wanting to shed its skin, getting rid of the old hard shell to make room for a new bigger world. Like animals detect earthquakes, so do humans but we react differently. I sometimes wonder if not all dreams are meant for the dreamer.
I can live with the symbolic nature of this, I can even come to terms if this dream is just of face value - fear, what I can't get past right now is what will go through my mind if this ever came true.
Thank you again, talking helps me work through these. . . things! As soon as I have a little more time I'm going to go back through your post, along with the others, to try and come to Some sort of peace with this. I'll only completely lose it in the meantime if my daughter dreams this again, 1 time is a coincidence, in this case another will be damning.
When I read your post asking why, the very first thing that came to mind is that God is giving you these so that when it happens you will be ready.
