I've been having for a long time now and maybe be lucky enough to have some input as to what it could mean! In any case it's good to get it out as
it's not something I share with anyone in 'real life' !
I think it all started when, at aged 20 when I was a student nurse, someone gave me a copy of The Exorcist to read! I was somewhat naive and was
curious as to what it was all about. Almost as soon as I began reading it, I began having repetitive dreams where I would always end up getting in a
lift, then the lift would plunge to the floor and I can honestly say I feel terror in these dreams...actually feeling my stomach tighten up, just like
when you fall a great distance in real life ie on a fairground ride. Every night I read The Exorcist, I had a similar dream, always resulting in
getting in the lift and falling. ( we lived in a Nurses Home at the time which was 8 floors high with a lift in the middle). I pretty quickly linked
the dreams to what I was reading and gave the book back. But the dreams have continued on and off, but regularly, for 19 years! (am now 39) I now tend
to find myself getting lost in either a hospital or a large but familiar building but it always ends up that I get I to a lift and the lift drops!
Another repetitive dream is that I am on a beach when the water levels begin to rise rapidly and huge waves begin to form and flood the beach. I
always manage to get in a building but the sea rises so high it is lapping against the windows. There is a real sense of panic. This one is very
occurs a lot and I can be in hotels, buildings or the beach but the water always comes!
Another dream I can't shake even though I had it a couple of years ago was of trying to flee from the city I lived in, was all very realistic. I was
driving to escape in my car but even though it was bright daylight, a huge dense black cloud covered the sky and cast everything into darkness! Again
there was widespread panic in my dream, people trying to escape etc. I've never forgotten that one, it was short but very intense.
Finally, at risk of sounding strange, I've lost a couple of close friends, one of cancer, one of carbon monoxide poisoning.At the time one of them
died, I saw her in my dream walking away from me and she turned and with a radiant smile, waved goodbye. I have vivid and lasting dreams of them each
coming to me, one seems lost and sad and frustrated that her partner remarried and no longer seems to notice her and tells me clear things to tell her
widowed partner and their son. I'm not in touch with him so never did mention this, but would not anyway at risk of sounding insensitive / crazy.
I don't dream of my other lost friend as often but when I do, he keeps telling me in my dream to 'get over' him dying and stop obsessing over his
I have had many dreams of people who passed away, relatives etc. They always seem to want to make their presence known or give me a message of some
kind. Sometimes it's people I didnt know very well and I wonder 'why me of all people?'
Well that's it in a nutshell but I wonder, am I reading significancies/ messages into these dreams that are not there, or do they have meaning?
I've tried to be as concise as I can...there's actually a lot of waking issues I have with intuition/ empathic occurrences but the thread is long
enough, so I will hold off on those.
I really would just appreciate knowing what, if anything, anybody thinks!
