I always have had odd dreams, I've written about some of them right here on ATS.
Last night I'd the most strange, vivid and oddly emotional dream. I want to write it down while it's still fresh in my mind, and would appreciate
any thoughts or input from anyone who's interested or experienced in interpreting dreams.
First, some basic background, I'm in my mid 30's and not prone to giving in to emotion. I once had a dream as a young boy that I said goodbye to a
family member, it was a permenant goodbye and I awoke from the dream in tears, I'll never forget that - it hasn't ever happened since until last
It started off quite odd and got stranger as it went on, I'll do my best to describe it.
I was with my mother, we had bags of shopping, groceries. We were stood waiting for a lift, the lift doors opened and my mother walked in, as I
entered the lift behind her she turned and handed me money, it was vivid enough that I remember she handed me 40 UK pounds, I said to her she was only
supposed to give me £20...she owed me money for something, which is peculiar in itself.
I asked why she'd given me 40 and tried to give her 20 back, she refused and told me to keep it, when I enquired as to why she said "because I never
liked you when you were a boy" but she was smiling when she said it, I've always had a great relationship with my parents - I looked her in the eye
then we both laughed, the lift doors closed and we started to move downwards.
The lift started to move faster and kind of shake from side to side, I said to my mother "this isn't right"...we both were a bit worried but trying
to make out like we weren't, eventually the lift slowed and came to a stop, the doors opened.
This is where it got surreal, the floor of the lift then started to move forwards towards the threshold, like one of those escalators. The floor moved
quickly, I'd left my bags of shopping on the lift floor and didn't pick them up fast enough, they were whisked towards the threshold and got caught
between the moving floor and threshold, the bag jammed in the mechanism and the contents burst out everywhere.
The lift had opened into a street, it was a very hilly street, not flat. Lot's of hills, with grass and houses on them. I was walking around
retrieving the items that came from the bag that burst when something caught my eye. There was a huge sheep like creature lying on its side - I knew
what it was in the dream, I shouted to my mother to draw her attention to what I'd noticed, I forgot all about my shopping and we both rushed over to
this sheep thing which was laying on a patch of grass.
I was ill or in pain, and I was terribly upset, it had a human face but the body of a sheep. There was another odd creature which I can't really
remember much about, standing over the sheep.
My mother and I comforted this sheep like animal, I knelt behind it, just at it's back and put my arms around it, I was crying and so was my mother.
I distinctly remember the feel of its fleece, it felt so real I can still kind of feel it now. It was trembling, almost vibrating, I turned to my
mother in tears and cried "He's shaking!". I was frantic and desperate, I just wanted to hold and comfort it.
The other animal that was there was concerned but composed, not showing much emotion at all, he then said that the sheep thing had "chosen" this, I
knew it was ill or injured and it was going to die, I was really upset and couldn't stop crying, I had to walk away and stood on the edge of a road
weeping uncontrollably, my mother came over and we were crying, the other animal then came over and again said "he chose this, don't be upset".
This other animal then told me "he has 5 days left", I returned and was cuddling this sheep thing and crying, the other animal then came over again
and said he had 5 hours left...I remember saying "you said 5 days" and it replied "I was mistaken"...my last thoughts in the dream were mistaken
about what? Were you mistaken about the 5 days or the 5 hours?
I then woke up, not ashamed to admit I was actually crying and quite disturbed, I felt like I'd lost something I loved. for the first time in moons I
actually woke before my alarm went off, I looked at the clock and the time was exactly 5:05 am, which I thought was an odd coincidence.
I haven't been able to stop thinking about this, I can't recal what the other creature was or what it looked like, the rest is crystal clear and
I've a lump in my throat right now just thinking about it. The sheep type thing, from memory, was big and ugly. But I loved it, in the dream it was
something really dear to me, my mother knew how much it meant to me in the dream, as she was being very supportive and was also upset.
I believe dreams mean something, this is completely random, I can't remember the last time I saw or thought about a sheep. I can't interpret this
dream but to be it seems steepd in messages and symbology, the lift, the money, my love for something that was actually quite hideous. I can't stop
thinking about it, I felt depressed on my way to work thinking about it.
That's pretty much it, any thoughts?
