Dreamt I was reconfiguring the universe...I think?

Sorry about the title, hard to express the content of the dream in a single sentence.

This is odd for a few reasons, most notably I've had the same or similar dreams once or twice. I've shared a lot of dream experiences on this forum and always the responses are insightful but this one is so hard to grasp and explain, let alone analyse.

It's mostly feelings, but there are some visual aspects to it.

Last night I dreamed I was in nothingness but there was a presence with me. Not evil, familiar. It was communicating with me somehow, not sure the details but like it was instructing me.

I was on some platform but there was no discernible features or horizon. In the distance was a small dot, looked like a star. I pointed at it and it came closer to me, up close it looked more like a screen. I can't remember what was on it. The presence instructed me to do something and I put my hands out, a small panel lit up before me. Really distinctive, you ever shine a light through the side of a piece of glass and it illuminates, beautifully?

It was like a small, rounded corner glass panel that a red light was being shone through, the light caught the edged of the glass and gave it a nice red outline. I began to wave my fingers across it and it was like I was interacting with a computer or something, I new what I was doing it seemed but I think I once or twice had the presence correct me. It all felt quite natural and rather friendly and not scary. But still there was a physical unease, but this was more earthly and real, not so obvious int he dream but more my subconscious which was restless...perhaps affected by the dream, like i was uncomfortable and on the brink of waking.

Anyway, whatever I did on this panel I was suddenly in a street and things weren't right. Colours were off, the sky looked funny, strange colour, there were other planets visible int he sky.

I knew it wasn't right so next i was back at the panel. The screen was a distant star again so I brought it closer and the presence continued to instruct me. This happened several times, each time I returned to what I think was earth or some other planet it was worse than before and a sense of urgency and despair began to take hold.

Tones changed and it seemed to be more serious...whatever we were trying to do wasn't working and it wasn't nice at all. There was a point we decided to leave as is as we realised each attempt was only resulting in more problems.

Extremely weird, I know it sound like that and that's what it was. I can't think of anything I've seen or heard in the real world that would even inspire something so bizarre. I can't remember much dialogue or really much details as I said, it's more started off feeling...amicable. It ended feeling chaotic and quite odd, like the laws of physics had been altered and it was irreversible.

I've had this dream before but it wasn't so intense. In the last dream I remember I made the sun huge.

I don't know if it means anything, I've been a bit stressed recently, few bad things happened in my family and at work...stressed. Maybe that's it, but the content of the dream is so alien to me so I'd appreciate any insight or opinions if you all don't mind.

Much obliged.

Sorry about family trouble, dreams are more vivid during troubling times. If I was to hazard a guess, you wish you could change some things going on in your life right now, that desire readily translates to our dreams. "Remaking our Universe"?

I wish I could, too.

It hought about that...truth is I've always wanted to make changes and tried, sometimes successfully sometimes not so much. You're probably right, current stress levels being as they are right now.

It intrigues me as much as it worries me, it's quite an odd dream, but yeah. Be nice to have that kinda power for a day, unless you're evil of course. I don't think I am but I may be deluded.

Appreciated, much obliged.

No problem. When you said family trouble, that struck a nerve. I'm having problems, too.

ETA: for instance, I'm arguing with my brother over certain issues of family responsibility. In my dreams I''m trying to appeal to him and ask for help and he keeps ignoring or taking swings at me. Last couple nights the dreams have been vivid.

I know its just my dreams reflecting that real world problem. The more dreams the more it shows how important it is. Sometimes I get answers, too. Mostly its just frustrating. My family and I don't see eye to eye on much of anything.

Sounds familiar to me...Does any of this look familiar?

I wouldn't be surprised if you took a little inter dimensional journey. If you have a dream and it isn't very memorable, it was probably just a dream. Now if you remember parts of the dream vividly, you more than likely experienced that reality. We're multidimensional beings and you went dimensional. Lucky Duck !!

No, I'm assuming the dream I related has similarities to the hitchikers guide to the galaxy. I've never seen the film, the only visuals I remember from the dreams were most notably the panel and screen, what patchy memories i have of that. Other imagery was in random places I can't much recall.

The most vivid parts of the dreams were more the feeling I was being instructed and trying to do something but being unable to. There was a bit of discomfort towards the end.

As for family issues, things have been a bit manic for the last few months. I don't want to go into it too much it's not appropriate but there's no bad blood or anything like that we all get on and are close. The regular trials and tribulations of family life I suppose.

Strangely the dream was actually quite interesting and sort of reminded me slightly of the old expanding and contracting dreams I used to have. Not exactly the same but had a similar hook that sort of stays with you yet is hard to grasp and express at the same time.

Interesting dream. Don't know what to tell you.

I will counter intrptr and say I don't think vivid dreams necessarily happen when we're in troubling times. Vivid dreams seem to happen on their own, regardless what we're doing. However, their contents might tend to relate to our activities.

Don't think about it too deeply. Dreams are dreams. They take us places. The fact we think ti's real when it's happening is why they're so special. However, we're not fully ourselves as they're happening, either. By that I mean parts of our consciousness are shut off, so our actions are different than they'd be if we're awake. Doesn't mean they have no value. We just can't treat them as equal to reality--which is common sense.

I've read our fears express themselves in dreams frequently. Maybe you have a fear of doing something you're unfamiliar with and failing? And not just failing, but failing in the midst of a "teacher" or higher up. Or maybe your fear expressed itself some other way in the dream.

Did you feel any fear or sense of failure?

Do you think the dream was a positive or negative expeirence?

I wouldn't exactly say negative, towards the end it felt like there was chaos, I felt like a million things were happening around me but don't remember specific details of what it was. I think this was me trying to return to the physical, like I was really uncomfortable and it was affecting the tail end of the dream.

In the beginning more calm, there was silence and it was kind of serene and I wasn't afraid or worried. It semed quite natural, something was there, for some reason I keep thinking of some thing I couldn't see at my right hand side but slightly higher. I saw nothing it was black, the podium and screen seemed to appear when I reached out for them. The screen not so much a screem more a tiny white dot maybe that got larger at my behest.

Communication with whatever I imagined to be there was fluid, natural but I don't rmember anything being said or heard. Feelings of foreboding came towards the end when I started to sort of panic because i kept getting it wrong, it was like I was trying to make corrections but each attempt resulted in something worse.

Thanks for the response, some good questions. To be honest I'd kinda like to experience it again, I wasn't scared when I woke up but I thought about it a lot.

To add - I don't actually remember seeing anything on the screen. More flashes, quick with no memorable transition, I'd do something then I'd be elsewhere and go back to make changes or corrections. It flipped back and forth a number of times between making changes to whatever I thought I was doing then appearing in some random spot.

I'm trying hard to articulate it but it's difficult.

You think your life is chaotic. You think you have problems. Then you got to see what its like to take on God's responsibilities... You failed horribly, but its ok, its not your job. Its Gods responsibility, and he has everything under control. So try not to worry so much about your tiny problems that seem huge. The really important stuff is being handled. So relax a little and try to enjoy life while you're here. Dont take life too seriously. Nobody makes it out alive anyways. In the end you will expire and all that stuff you wasted time worrying about will be someone elses problem. All you can do is do the best you can while you're here, everything else is beyond your control. All we need is love. All you need to do is love. Try to base all your actions on love, kindness, and understanding/empathy, and you've already won half the battle.

Yeah, possibly.

Didn't feel like I was god, it's hard to grasp, really. Perhaps reconfiguring the universe is a bit of a misleading way of putting it. I was changing something and sort of checking to see if it was right but feeling it more than seeing it.

Meh, can't remember any dreams since but it was still peculiar. It had similarities to dreams I used to have a lot, bizarre dreams of sort of expanding and contracting...or inflating to a massive size and suddenly shrinking to the size of an atom. That's literally how they felt, extremely difficult to express or articulate as hard as I try.

The feeling of making some change and switching to some other place had that sort of feeling only less powerful.

Thanks for the insightful response.
