Dream from the mailbag:
So I’ve had some really strange, recurring dreams my whole life. I suffer from sleep paralysis and it makes dreams that much more intense when you know you’re asleep.
I commonly have dreams where I am stranded, or abandoned, but not so far away from the house I grew up in. I usually always make it there and when I do, it’s like I live the life I live now, but in this home from the past. There is always a theme of trying to do something in a short amount of time, but always running late and having extreme anxiety about it. Also, the terrain outside of the home has changed. instead of it being in a neighborhood, there are huge buildings around and fences around the area, like we’re fenced in. I’ve also noticed that there are people in uniform sometimes standing around….they don’t give me the sense of fear, but like…protection. Though I often feel like they’re protecting me from something not that scary. When I realize I’m sleeping (usually I just “wake up”) I try to talk to people and they refuse to talk to me…or they give vague, hard to interpret answers. Like I asked one lady where she was from and she said “the west has many things to offer”. ???. That was highly confusing. There is also a lot of water around all the time. I see ponds, oceans, lakes…even cups of water around the house that I seem to really focus on in dreams. I’ve seen spinning discs over and over again, and it’s usually someone throwing it at me. I have searched over and over for a meaning to this and cannot find anything. I know I mentioned earlier about fences surrounding the area but I didn’t mention the wall aspect. In most of these dreams, there is a HUGE wall on the outskirts of the area. There was one dream where me and a group of people were trying to leave the area and when we got to the wall, we somehow got through to the other side and NOTHING was there. It was just a huge empty field.
Not sure if you can really give an interpretation from that, but I’ve been told that themes and symbols are what you should look out for, I just don’t know what they mean…
I would appreciate it so much if you tried and I would love to hear someone else’s opinion on these dreams. Look forward to your interpretation!! Thanks!
