Dream from the mailbag:
Hey, I have another strange dream for you if you’re up to it. It seems to be in line with the common themes of all my dreams. I’ll admit, I wrote it down immediately after I woke up and have been trying to decode it myself; that didn’t work, there is are still things I don’t get. So I was hoping you could give it a try.
It starts out at a high school, and I’m a student. The school is completely foreign to me, I have no memory of ever seeing it in waking life. Anyway, I’m late for school (common theme being late though I am NEVER late in waking life) and when I get there there’s this girl hanging out with my “clique”and me and my best friend (in dream land, not real life. Again, never seen this person in waking life) get to know her and I start hanging out with her more. The strange part about this dream is the fact that a long period of time passes from beginning to end. It starts in high school and ends up somewhere in college. I’ll get to that in a little though.
Anyways, my best friend gets mad and tells me this girl is going to betray me and I better watch out. Time goes by and suddenly this girl is my best friend and my original friend has New friends. I remember specifically standing by my locker and she walks by. I try to talk to her and she slams MY locker closed and storms off with her new friends. More time passes and now I’m living in some institution (college ) and attending a class with my new best friend. The teacher is my waking life psychology professor. Weird. After class my best friend and I get into it over her boyfriend staying in our room or something to that effect. I leave the campus, but don’t make it very far. The stairs leading to the edge of institute are broken. On the ground, there are children playing. I also notice a huge fence, but its broken in some spots. There is a strange blue creature hanging around the fence and, but since its not bothering the children, I decided to jump down and make a run for it. At this point I become lucid. Even so, the creature comes after me. I run from it, but it corners me. I try asking it what it is why its here and what its purpose is. No response, as usual but he did point to the kids and nod. I walk off, as I am lucid now and have a little control. Then somehow, I’m on a beach with a cove. The waves a crashing violently and getting worse. I suddenly want back in the institution as I am frightened. However I can’t remember how to get back. My lucidity is slipping away as I walk down through the cove. I run into my original best friend, back from the dream high school. I feel like I hadn’t seen her in ages!! We hug and I tell her something along the lines of me not wanting my new life. The next thing I remember is being in the car with her and driving through what looks like the mountains and hills of California’s bay area (where I am from, by the way) and I don’t really remember us talking. We finally end up at my elementary school and then….my alarm clock went off and I awoke!!!
