I have dreamt (i dont know if im spelling that right so correct me if im wrong) that i am in this city (I dont know where) for the past four years now, The other day i was thinking about it and i have been dreaming about this place alot, and all my dreams weather it be in a forrest or by a lake or w/e i can always see the city / hear the city. Mostly the dreams are about me spending time in the world as if i would any other day while im awake, there is nothing abnormal to me other than i was hanging out with a bunch of people i hate in the past one. (My mindset may have something to do with this *String-theory+Added Theorys*)

I suppose there are a number of angles one could approach this from. Have you a major decision to make at the moment because it would seem you feel yourself caught between two stools, tied to this perhaps you feel it's time to move on yet feel yourself comfortable in the known. I see from your profile that you are 17 this could lead one to also thinking that you are maturing and thinking of 'leaving the nest'. More as an indication of maturity than any necassarily physical manifestation and your indication of it being a rural situation where you are looking back on the city from, rather than for instance another city, could indicate a certain lack of sure or certain direction/or if you have a sure direction a wondering about where that will lead you.
So just a dream that encapsulates some of the worries but also the wonderment and possibilities out in the wider world for someone of your age. For looking back on it from the rural 'idyll' would seem to indicate you don't feel too hemmed in or restricted and see the world as possibilities which could indicate quite a positive and optimistic persona.

Have you been thinking about your social relationships lately? One possible meaning could be this:

dreammoods.com...

City
To see a city in your dream, signifies your social environment and sense of community. If you dream of a big city, then it suggests that you need to develop closer ties and relationships. You are feeling alienated and alone. To dream that you are in a deserted city, indicates that you feel rejected by those around you.

To dream of a city in ruins, denotes that you are neglecting your social relationships and allowing them to deteriorate.

To dream of an underground or underwater city, represents your unconscious and how through deeper understanding of yourself, you find commonality and shared experiences with others.

thank you, i only have a few things to say though, I have already left my parents about a year and a half ago, i visit them all the time and that, Also to reply to the other post i actualy am living a normal life in it but when i wake up its like i didnt realy care about this world, like i knew about it being there and i knew about my "Awake life" and i just wanted to live that life normaly, Ive had 2 more dreams in the city lately and i was just standing in a windown looking down on it and the skyline, (i think i was in a building) and the other i was driving around listening to music on my way to work, odly enough i got accepted to a youth job program through my school and now have a job doing a lower end version of my "Dream" career (Dream as in Wished for). Also my religion leads me to think this may be a different time line or life, also i could be seeing the life of another being somewhere else. (I am an Ovate in Druidisim)

The looking back on the city could still be seen as what seems to be a good relationship with you parents. Could I suggest that now you are sometimes dreaming in the 'city' that your sense of independence is growing. This after all does not happen straight away and your sense of otherness or separation could be seen as reconciling your experiences and belief system into a wider world. It sounds quite healthy to me if a little puzzling for you as you are growing and learning.

I can not believe I am about to post this on ATS, but... wow.... here goes......

I have had dreams about a city for the atleast the last 15 years. The city I dream about is huge and has a curious mix of old (best I can describe is maybe a small English village) to very modern almost futuristic. I can give directions to almost any place in that city. Hospital buildings, shops, malls, offices, restaurants. I can navigate the city streets and know the motorway/highway system inside and out. I have dreamed of being in the city both on foot and in a vehicle. I even know the housing suburbs and the interior of many of the homes. My dreams are so varied. From trying to make it to an appointment, to shopping in the mall, to running from monsters, to setting in traffic and walking down the street to eat at a restaurant.

I have also had dreams with the same feel about other areas, mostly an entertainment type place. Almost like a mix between a large amusement park and Las Vegas. Gambling and roller coaster type rides. I can see perfectly clear in my mind the approach to this area and many of the buildings/rides. Sometimes I even think I could draw a map to get there from the city, but it is like something that I can't translate visually.

Once many years ago when I was working for a radio station I attended an "after work" promotion that the radio station put on at a local bar. It was one of those, women come out after work for discounted drinks and free stuff sort of things. I was new to radio back then and went to see how that type of promotion worked. As part of the "geared toward women" theme, they had a palm reader setup and she was doing mini-readings for $5. I was in a new job and figured what the heck. She went thru my reading and at the end I just asked, can you tell me about the city? I did not give any details or even mention dreaming, just that question. She replied that the city was where my past lives and my future lives were coming together. That my dreams of the city was me trying to resolve my path. The city was just me trying to use what I did know with what I would know to get me though this life.

I don't know if that helps, but I'm glad I'm not the only one that says.... "I dreamed about the city last night". Thanks for your thread, now I don't feel so alone!

Thank you for posting on your story, Ive been thinking and reading my dream journals thepast couple days and if you have ever seen "DrWho" i have came into the place asif im the tartus coming in (any one who hasnt its just pulsations of light untill its atoms fourm.) However i can only think of it once, i walked out and it was REALY dark, only light was reflecting off the water from rain the light came from the orange bulbs in the street lamps, i stoped as i walked out of an alleyway after seeing a few flashes of light from behind me, (when someone takes a flash picture from behind you but ALOT stronger light, A car drove infront of me and nearly splashed me, i walked out to cross the street and realized i was on a strip mall along an unused dock, (no boats) i walked along into a Card shop (im a nerd *Magic the gathering For The Win*) And bought something, i think it was one of the realy expensive cards they keep in the glass and i turned to walk out (OH By the way the shop only had a lantern (Again orange light) as its lightsource mabe a candel or two. but i tuned to walk out and a black mass was in the doorway streaching up to the cieling and then i woke up, im having the rest play out for be but i dont know if its my immagination or not (It streches over me and i see black smoke in my main view but still see the windows and shop owner out of my perifreal) i cant think of anything after that i know its my immagination if i keep going.
