I love hosting a Q&A post every couple of weeks on this blog and I always seem to choose at least one question for which i find the answers most fascinating. This week, it was the last question regarding dreams. And not just regular dreams. I wanted to know if you had the kind of dreams that repeat themselves: Recurring dreams.
These photos have nothing to do with this post. I’m physically unable to post something without a photo and I thought that these two pictures, taken by my husband last October, were as good as any to share with you.
They were taken from the widow’s walk at the house. Above is a view looking towards the driveway (north).
And now to some of your answers, when asked the question “Do you have a recurring dream and what do you think it means?”
I love these . . .
I had a recurring dream for many years that I was flying/floating over the treetops in the neighborhood where I grew up. The first time I dreamed it was when I realized that I dream in color. Love that dream!
I can fly ~~~save people.. One time I actually tried flying off the bed and landing ker-plunk onto the floor.. That woke me up~~fast~!
I've always felt so glorious after my flying dreams that I think it has to have something to do with a feeling of freedom and wellness. (I really love those dreams!)
The [dream] I like most is the one where I'm flying free outside and I go under wires and in between buildings and over trees. I love the freedom of that dream. I've looked it up before and it says that you have power over something in your life at that time. go figure!
I've learned that I have a purpose in life through my recurring dream...
And dreams of houses . . .
I dream that I'm in a huge house with lots of odd rooms and hidden areas. Isn't a house supposed to represent one's self? Any interpreters out there?
I have a recurring dream about living in a huge house on a hill... I'm expecting company and I'm pressed for time to get all the rooms ready for them - anxiety! No idea what it means.
(I found [this] on ‘House’. ~ C.G.)
And then there are the scary ones . . .
I have a recurring dream about being locked into a huge house, with moving rooms and shut doors. I think I know what it means, it is a scary dream and never quite the same twice.
Tidal waves...I don't think it means a love of water!
(You’re right, it doesn’t. I found [this] on tidal waves. ~ C.G.)
[My dream] involves a car, a hill and accelerated speed while I frantically stomp the break down to the floor and I all I see out the windshield is sky. Very scary. I've read that it means I feel like I have no control in my life.
Recurring dream was terrible--a plane crash in our pasture and I was always the only one there to help. Then one night, the plane pulled up at the last minute and didn't crash, and I never had the dream again. No idea what it means, but I'm sure a Freud type would have a field day.
And then there’s these . . .
I dream I'm in NYC and I don't like it and I am lost. I don't know what triggers this dream, but it may have something to do with watching reruns of Sex in the City before bedtime.
[Mine are] more like recurring themes. From time to time I dream that I'm out walking and exploring a city.. or a large house. When I awaken I'm disappointed that I wasn't really there. This morning I was in a Scandinavian country.. exploring and taking great photos of interesting sights and objects including a Danish or Norwegian Monopoly board. When I woke up, I was disappointed that these images didn't exist on my camera. They were going to be great blog fodder. ;)
And this is the one that made me gasp out loud . . .
Yes, I have had a recurring dream for years. I am floating in a stream in the bottom of an old dug out canoe, hiding, as I lay there I see trees over head as the canoe floats quietly down the stream. I notice I am wearing an old dress like early settlers of America. I am afraid of discovery.
(Wow. ~ C.G.)
