the stuff about dreams really intrests me. ive had many dreams that seem real, but i have no idea why they occur or if they are real.
i can only guess from my own experiences.
vivid dreams can sometimes be so bizarre and have no relation to your reallife reality and your puzzled why you even dreamt such a thing.
some dreams seem real and seem like reallife with people you have never seen before in your life.
or they seem real and relate to everything you'd expect of your actual life.
if dreams were real surely there would be some kind of consistency, but from my experience every dream that seemed real was different in many ways.
so i certainly would'nt say all vivid dreams are real or some alternative reality.
i do however believe in the soul/spirit, and i think dreams are some form of information given through thoughts, either meaning something or showing
something, maybe even future events in some cases.
but mainly i think they are information, if you know how to understand them. all the vivid dreams i remember have always been about events
in my life currently or events that were yet to happen. apart from a few that seemed to be about the pastlifes maybe.
heres what happened to me and the dreams that came before and during turmoil in my life at the time.
i remember being chased through the streets at night, as though i was actually there, everything looked identical to reallife, i reached a alleyway,
and in the alleyway was lots of obsticles(hedge rows going across the alleyway a bit like what horses jump). i turned around to see the people who
were chasing me catching up, so i had no choice but to jump the hedges which seemed impossible to jump, but i had to try, i jump them all somehow
apart from the last one, my foot caught on the top of it and i fell to the ground but on the opposite site, i was clear but on the ground.
i saw a shadow of a person with a blured face shouting for me to get up!
i got up eventually and escaped the people chasing me.
this dream occured at a difficult time in my life, it had meaning. i made it through.
but before all that i dreamt my future, i was having relationship problems with my girlfriend, we had a daughter. i was desprate to make things work,
because of our daughter, but she seemed to of lost intrest. we split up and i moved out, i had to start from scratch and was unable to be there
everyday for my daughter, which hurt, but these things happen when things don't work out. it did'nt make the pain any easier to take at the time,
so it was a stressful time.
but before any problem started to occur in our relationship, i dreamt about going to see my mum and my brother in their flats in derby(they had lived
there a year or just over in reallife, but i had never been there myself, they use to come to visit me). anyway in the dream they asked me if i
wanted to live with them, also on my way there i saw a bridge that i'd never seen before in my life, at the time when i dreamt it i had no reason to
think it was anything, it was just a dream.
anyway when i split with my girlfriend i called my mum to see if i could stay there untill i sorted myself out. she said yes and got my uncle to
fetch me. on the way to my mums house i saw the exact same bridge in my dream when we got into derby, and i had a deja vu moment. and the flats they
lived in were the same(from the outside).
the dream about the bridge occured before any problem started to show in my relationship at the time, the second occured when it became evident.
it was as though i was being told what was going to happen and that everything would be ok in the end.
i since moved on, got my life back on track, my own place, met someone else, have two sons, and see my daughter most weekends etc etc. it was years
ago now but i believe dreams have a purpose. and could be giving us signs and messages about ourselves, our lives, and possible future occurences.
