From as far back as I can remember I had this terrifying recurring nightmare. It happened moreso when I was a child, but I still occasionally have it
as an adult.
I am in my mom's house (the house I grew up in). I smell smoke and go into the hallway to investigate. I can see like lines of fire burning in the
walls and ceiling moving really fast. Somehow in the dream I know that it's the wiring in the house burning. The lines of fire almost look like the
"wick" or whatever it's called on dynamite or a firecracker...burning and moving along really fast. I am terrified but totally frozen to the spot
even though I know there is an electrical fire happening I can't move.
I usually wake up after that. The dream is pretty short and doesn't actually feature me getting burned, or running away, but when I wake up I am
more terrified than any of the worst "monster" type dreams I've ever had.
This dream was the most prevalent..probably twice a week from as young as I can remember until about 13 years old. Since then it's a rare occurence
but when it does happen, it's still exactly the same. I'm a young child in my mom's house (which I haven't lived in for almost 20 years).
I never really told anyone about the dreams...maybe my parents when I was a kid, but none of my friends as I grew older just pushing it to the back of
The freaky part was...in my late teens..about 19, as a joke my friends and I met a lady that did astrology charts, palm reading...stuff like that.
After the initial blah blah blah stuff she said to me "ooohh you should be very careful around fire and electricity..." That floored me! I know it
could've been a random coincidence, but wow!
About 3.5 years ago we bought our first house. Unbeknownst to us...it had a mouse infestation. After wondering why our bread was half eaten every
morning we realized the issue and set about getting rid of the mice. We figured out that they were probably coming in through a hole in the
foundation that the wires from our central air ran in through. One suggestion on the internet was to stuff steel wool into the hole until you could
cement it closed. So...there I went with a big bunch of steel wool...went to stick it into the hole...suddenly got shocked and watched a puff of
smoke rise and the wool catch fire! Because I'm such a wuss and terrified of fire I called the fire dept worried the fire was inside the walls. The
found that the mice had chewed the insulation off the wires to make their "passageway" bigger and as soon as the steel wool came in contact it
caught fire. (after laughing at me of course...oh and shutting down the hydro to the entire house until an electrician could come and rerun new
Happy ending...and I'm hoping that was what my dream and the palmreader lady were warning me about! Oh man, if anything much worse were to happen to
me I'd probably have to go on meds, or in a home
Now, I'm willing to put aside the palmreader as a coincidence and that being one of her standard warnings...but does anyone know if dreams about fire
and/or electricity have a totally different meaning than to be warning of an ACTUAL fire? Maybe if I find out it means something totally different I
can calm down and relax a bit. ( I can't even bring myself to start the campfire at our trailer)
