I'm starting this as the comprehensive, all encompassing dream thread, in which everyone is invited to report their dreams.

Good dreams, bad dreams, sleepless nights - all are welcome. Let's create a long analogue of our dream realities. Some people regard reading other's dreams as boring - but this is the place where no dream is boring.

Instead of starting a new thread every time someone has a weird, frightening or scary dream - we can put them all here. I don't know if there will be interest, but I'm interested in your dreams...:-)

Come one and all and report your dreams in this thread, I'm pompous enough to offer an interpretation of every one of them. heh heh - But truly, I find with dreams, you can ask yourself what each component in the dream meant and your subconscious will offer up a far more accurate interpretation.
A popular view of modern psychology is that every aspect of a dream is an aspect of self.

Some cultures have regarded the dream world as just as real as the physical world. The Iroquois believed dreams relayed the soul's wishes, and that those wishes must be respected and somehow enacted in the physical world.

Psychoanalysis would say that every aspect of a dream is a reflection of self, and dreaming is a way of resolving conflicts and/or negotiating deeper issues without the fetters of conscious mind.

More recently it's been suggested that dreams are an easier way for whatever other sentient creatures who share our universe with us to talk to us. I find the feral aspect of the 'Grays' rather like the subconscious, sentient but wild.

Compiling a dream analogues of all of our separate realities seems to heighten the experience of whatever mysterious elixir is created by our minds when dreaming. If you're interested in dreaming, adding to a journal with other dreamers can be of benefit, by reinforcing the intent.
I'll be checking this thread occasionally to see if anyone wants to participate.

See you in astral.

I will kick it off with a strange dream. Sounds like astral projecting. I thought I was awake and got up to turn the lights and the computer on. I got really annoyed when the computer and the lights wouldn't turn on. Said to myself, must be a power outage. Then I realized my fingers weren't fully corporeal and that I must be sleeping. But it freaked me out, because I was in the same dimension, just not in my body. I woke up and the power was working fine.

As for last night, if the Iroquois are right, I have to find a black boyfriend.

No, it wasn't like that.....Tsk.

I almost forgot to mention the long and illustrious human history of prophetic dreams as so deftly noted in the title of this entire section of board: Dreams and Predictions.

It doesn't really detract from your dreams to not make a thread for each one, but mixes all the intent towards better dream recall and control and makes it a group effort.

And we all know the do's and don'ts of mob mentality. - Actually, it is a good thing when a community of dreamers come together.

I especially invite jgray and her dreams of owls and white linen garments embossed with gold names....;-)

Damb! If we all start writing our dreams down. We all will be convince were all Psychotic!

Hahaha! I'll write mine down also. I've been stressing about getting through the month without running out of money for gas.

So my dream last night was about getting my money ripped off from my wallet and then when I was driving around in circle trying to find the perp I ran out of gass.

I have the book 10,000 dreams and their interpitaions if anyone wants it PM me.

Oh. By the way when ever I say that. No one ever pm's me. That is much better than posting the url for everyone to see.

I beg to differ Modemizer, that was not a simple anxiety dream.

It was obviously an in depth prophecy of the coming economic scramble for petrol, and intricate examination of the psychology involved.

The perp would be our own responsibility as consumers to demand alternatives that never seems to be addressed. Although, as consumers - with quickly dwindling buying power - we need to act now, en masse, to address the situation. Boycotting has become as unpopular as walking. So we will go around in circles until the ghastly thing is finished playing out.

See, pompous...heh heh.

Ok...I'll start you off with one (notice the time of posting? insomnia kicked in). Somebody give me one of these:
to knock me out.

Here goes:

Lake Ontario is a 1 min walk from where I live. Across the lake is Buffalo, New York.

Every once in a while I have these re-occurring dreams/nightmares concerning tidal waves emmenating from the lake.

It begins with what I call a 'bad feeling' in my gut. I keep thinking to myself, "Oh we go again...I remember to wake myself up or I'm going to get that 'terror feeling".


I'm standing on the shore of lake Ontario, walking around the beach, when all of a sudden I see the water that was lapping up to the sands edges, get 'sucked out' towards the middle of the lake.

I keep thinking to myself, 'something happened over on the other side of the lake to make that happen'.

As I'm watching the water draining out, off in the distance I see what appears to be a column of water...I'm talking HUGE tall waves. The size of 20 ft. apartment buildings, and these babies are travelling at a tremedous volocity!

Many times I would wake up before the waves amassed; other times I would wait and see what would happen when the waves hit. For the most part, I just pull myself out of the nightmare before the scene unravells to it's fullest.

I have managed to take a glimpse of the end results though; only a few times as it REALLY scared the 'you-know-what' out of me.

What happens at the end of my dream is something else I have to say.

The people I saw in my dream (noone I would recognize when I'm awake)are scrambling for higher grounds. Some make it, some don't.

The ones that went for their cars were the crazy ones (I called them that in my dream because I knew they wouldn't stand a snowball's chance in hell to make it out fast enough).

The smart ones headed for the nearest tallest buildings and went straight up to the top floors. A sporting chance I suppose.

When the water came in, and did its toll, it took a long while for it to recede (come to think of it, I can't remember if it receded at all?)

What happened next was just as amazing...

The people that did survive the onslaught could look down below the water (at this time it was not murky but very clear) and they could see houses, cars, street lights, that were under the water.

Anyway folks,
Sleep is finally tapping me on the shoulder and I've got work to do.
Have a good sleep (or at least try to LOL)
I look forward to reading your dreams as well.

Nite nite

Fascinating Duckster, aside from the psychic warning of the coastal inundation that we are all expecting as a result of global warming, I would say this dream has to do with emotion.

The waters of the subconscious are deep and water represents the flexible, fluid quality of emotions. The anxiety preceding the tidal waves and tendency to wake up before it hits, implies unresolved underlying emotional conflicts finding some release and expression in the dream.

Envisioning the survivors and their different strategies could be the subconscious mind's way of telling you that you will survive whatever turmoil life throws at you. That the best strategy was the highest ground may be an encouragement to seek the moral high ground when trying to resolve any emotional conflicts that may arise.

And the fact that the water was clear at the end, indicates a successful negotiation of emotional conflicts, that once they have been dealt with you will have a far greater understanding of the issues, to a greater depth.

Here is another one I had last night!


I had a dream last night that I don't get. It involved some of the people in Sopranos and I don't even watch that show anymore. I think that they did a very good job when picking James Gandofini for the role. As an expert who has been trained in recognizing body language and the meaning behind it. I have also been trained in emitting a look that is unreadable. This is something that is very rare, because even the best psychologist can read a persons thoughts by facial recognition. This skill hardly ever comes natural and takes many hours of dedication to perfecting. Personally, I'm angry when I see a person profit off another's misfortunate life style that in most cases had no decision in entering. Mr. Gandofini (labeled that in the most of respect) has shown me that he took his leading role very seriously and spent a lot of time perfecting a look that is needed for a person of his position in the series to stay alive. My hats off to him.

Why did I have a dream with some of the cast of Sopranos when it's has been about six months sense I watched the last episode of the third season? I have no idea. I decided I was no longer interested in that series back then and still feel the same today.

Well I digress. Here is the PG version of my dream so it will be very short. Hahahahaha!

I was at the restaurant of Catherine Narducci (Charmaine) talking to James Gandofini (Tony) about how I could launder all 25 million of his dirty money though Social Security and Stolen Credit Card accounts. He was very interested in this and wanted to know more, but I insisted that all of our future contact be done through computers and BBS's. He had no idea about that kinda stuff and did not want to deny this opportunity. He told me that he would agree to this arrangement if I allowed his son which understood computers pretty well to do the computer work for him. I told him that it was up to him because he was the man. Tony replied, "If you pull this off, you'll prove to everyone that you're The Man!" I was very much younger than Tony was and he grabbed me by the back of the neck and gave it a playfully fatherly shake.

I noticed Charmaine talking to a man at one of the tables. She was not assisting him in his menu, business needs or anything like that. She was very unprofessionally sitting on his lap laughing and giggling. Their was something very odd about this man. I looked at Tony and directed my eyes towards them, but by the time Tony took a look it was only Charmaine sitting there drinking red wine.
Tony said, "What? A hard working woman can't drink a little red wine and rest her feet for a few minutes?" This just did not make any sense, so I pardoned myself from Tony and walked towards Charmaine. She was wearing the tight blue dress she was wearing in one of the early episodes of Sopranos. I whispered in her ear that I wanted her to follow me into the back of the storage room to talk some business. She looked at Tony for approval and he just shrugged his shoulders and waived his hand for her to go ahead.

We went in the storage room and I told her that I had the hots for her. She laughed like she didn't take me seriously, but we instantly began making passionate love, rubbing, kissing etc. I was very attracted to her but my motive was not sex. It was to find the wire she was caring to record the conversation Tony and I just had. As I was kissing her and rubbing her all over felling her body for the wire I was thinking that if she did have a wire she would not bet doing this with me. I reached up her stockings and felt a small .38 strapped to her thigh. She made a joke that she was packing heat and she could feel that I was packing some serious heat also. I felt the back of her bra and there was no wire. In the heat of the moment she must of forgot about the wire because she did not try to stop me from removing her bra from underneath the dress. As the bra snapped free so did the wiretap and it feel in my hand.
The dream quickly changed to me walking down the hallway with the wiretap in my hand. As I got to Tony's table I looked up and saw myself sitting there and not Tony. My arms were wide open and I said to myself, "Job Well Done! Your The Man!"

I instantly woke up with my heart racing and that was the end of it.

Friggin weird if you ask me.

i dont follow sopranos so i dont understand your dream...haha =]

last night i had a dream that was kind of like an out of body experience [happened more than once but it wasnt the same each time]

i woke up and looked at my closet and the girl from the ring was staring at me so i was all freaked out and turned over to face my wall. I fell back asleep and woke up and ran out of the room to avoid the girl then went into the bathroom and started doing my makeup.

today i was supposed to take the ACT [didnt actually happen though] so i believe i was stressed

i had like a really restless night too it was weird

I don't follow Sopranos either, so I'm just as confused!

Failing success in a life of crime, modemizer will write successful sexual fantasies, that will be published widely in Penthouse and similar journals...

Both dreams seem to have an aspect of anxiety. While modemizers dream implies the power struggles familiar to relations between the genders, including intrigue of a sexual and political nature (as in the inter-relationships that develop in society), which involve possible betrayal and the sub-conscious reassurance of his own worth.

KatieD's dream seems more like a common version of the sub-conscious negotiating anxiety and self doubt. The girl in the ring is in the predicament of being eternally stuck in a well (rut), following a betrayal (failure).

Quite astute to recognize the performance anxiety preceding your ACT exams.
In order to assuage the fear and increase your productivity, you might want to tell yourself, that your going to be just fine. That no matter what the results of your ACT test are, you are a unique and worthwhile individual who belongs solidly in the world for the special gifts only you can offer. (Just don't offer them to modemizer) JOKE!

KatieD to reduce your anxiety you might repeat the following affirmation:

I love and approve of myself, and I trust the process of life. I am safe.

It wouldn't hurt you either modemizer, although it appears, Charmaine already told you that.

that makes a lot of sense

thanks clearwater =]

do you have a background in dream studies or some other related subject?

btw, your icon creeps me out haha

Try this it works always.

Set your alarm clock to go off every 5 mins and your dreams are remembered.

It is frustrating at first then you become hooked.

Your dreams become real and lucid etc.

Press snooze for 5 minute each time for 3 hours.


posted on Apr, 15 2007 @ 02:57 PM
No just pompous....heh heh - If you permit me, I'll tell every single one of you exactly what my interpretation of your dreams are....

Once you've been abused by the birth of the new science they refer to as psychology, which is probably tantamount to butchers calling themselves surgeons, you learn your way around their pompous, infantile, sexist, controlling, conformist, self-serving, power-grubbing interpretations...

but no need to throw the baby out with the bath water.
and of course, I can read.

One doesn't really need to wake up every five minutes in order to improve dream recall. The sub-conscious is non-judgmental and appears to absorb all information without conscious discernment. So if you jokingly say negative things about yourself, your subconscious will believe it. But on the plus side, you can repeat affirmations with astounding success.

So if you want to remember your dreams, keep a dream journal by your bed and tell yourself every night before going to sleep -

I will remember my dreams and interpret them for my own highest good.

I dreamt last night, I was on a pilgrimage and stopping at different houses along the way. Can't remember much else at this point, but there was a ruddy complected fellow interested in what I was saying who seemed to appear, every where I went.

Hmmmnnn, he's probably hired a lawyer....
Ahh the persuasions of power.....

No idea why, well, maybe i do have an idea why, but i dreamt at least twice that I'm fighting in WW2. Iwo jima on one occasion, which just totally confused me.

The idea why would be that I watched rather a lot about WW2 as the history Channel often seems to be the WW2 channel.

posted on Apr, 15 2007 @ 05:26 PM
Apex, your preoccupation with the history channel, (uh WWII channel) and subsequent dreaming about said conflict - Iwo Jima, - indicates remnants of past life trauma.

As Sylvia Browne might say - Remind yourself, you're in this life now.

Or maybe it's just too much TV. Heh heh.

You lived through the worst of it anyhow, sugar before bed or not.

i had a new dream

i was in a town that i've never visited before with my grandma, and two best friends

we went into a resteraunt that had a stage, so me and my friends went on stage and started saying jokes

at first the crowd liked us but at the end they boo-ed us till the owner of the resteraunt kicked us out

as we were being pushed out of the door i looked back at the owner and yelled "b****!"at her.

my grandma dissapeared from the dream at this point.

my two friends and i walked out on to the street and a white suv pulled up to us.

in it there were two older males who waved a 20 at us and said "we'll give this to you if you do something for us"

i took the twenty as if i was inspecting it and just pocketed it and they didnt notice.

my friends and i didnt do anything for them [ew haha]

and we kept walking, apparently to where we were staying.

That's a neat dream KatieD,
- how convenient for your grandmother to disappear just when the language got rough - it would seem vulgarity is not acceptable to your upbringing.

This dream also appears to focus of the anxiety of making a living - stand up comedians have a very tough line of work and the criticism can be brutal. That you fought back at being kicked out, implies you have a sense of worth that's not dependent on the opinions of others.

The invitation from the men in the van, may reflect the disparity in wages offered to people without specific training. While men can enter construction work as well as several other entry level positions at a living wage - The comparable entry level wage scale for women is reflected in the sex trade, stripping, pornography, prostitution.

It appears, you would like to make that kind of money, but it is not agreeable to your subconscious, or conscience.

I had a strange dream last night - I was once again in strange territory and becoming a little anxiety ridden, when there was a sense of being lifted up - perhaps comparable to how a crying infant feels when they are comforted by their mothers. Lifted up and cradled in the certainty of being loved and cared for.

Last night I dreamt that my mp3 player's battery was dead, which annoyed me very much because the battery indicator hadn't indicated it was dying.

That's something I noticed about it in waking life, but to dream about it tells me that my dependence on music for mood manipulation is something it's time to outgrow a bit. In the Buddhist tradition of not having too many externals like that in order to achieve a desirable state of mind. Probably relates to the astral thing with the power out on the computer as well.

Time to step up the meditative spiritual autonomy.
