Have you ever had a reoccurring dream? What is it about?
I have 2 reoccurring dreams that happen quite often. The first is that I am lost in my old high school and wandering around looking for my classes that I can’t find. I don’t know why I dream this, because even though I went to a very large high school, I never got lost in that school one single time. The other dream is that I am back in the marching band in high school and the band is lined up on the field ready to begin their show and I am late and running towards the field trying to make it on time. But I usually discover that I don’t have my baton, or I don’t have my shoes on, or something crazy! I often wish I could get these dreams analyzed.
When I was younger (probably beginning as a preteen), I had two recurring dreams.
A house up the street from us seems to be on fire…but the only flames are in the big, front window. (My mother used to call these picture windows. Don’t know if that’s a real term or not…lol) And I see my grandmother’s face – big enough to fill the window – scowling. When I start crying, she starts laughing. (My mother actually explained this dream to me when I finally told her about it when I was in my mid-20s. The dream stopped after I understood it.)
In my other dream, I’m riding in the back seat of a car. The road is in good condition, but it is curvy (kind of like the old S curves on Lebanon Rd in front of TN School for the Blind). There is no shoulder and a big drop-off with no trees or grass, just huge rocks. The car goes off the road and is at the bottom of the drop-off. (No falling or rolling…it just gets to the bottom…lol) I am all alone so I get out of the car. Then someone must start chasing me because I am afraid and running, looking back over my shoulder. But I never see anyone. Then I wake up. (This dream started when I was about 10 and continued until I was almost 30.)
I still remember both of these dreams in vivid detail. (Believe me, I haven’t shared very much detail!!!) My dreams have always been so detailed that it would take me hours to explain a 5 minute dream with all the little things. Fortunately, I don’t have any recurring dreams now that I’m old 😉 but they are very strange and continuous, like channel surfing with a remote.
Wow Connie, those were certainly vivid for me! Glad they stopped. Wish mine would. Oh, and my mother used to call them picture windows too. LOL
For about 20 years I had the reoccurring dream/nightmare where I’d be riding in a car then it would fly off a cliff. Most of the time we would plunge into the water and I’d be trying to get out of the car which was submerged. Sometimes I would get out and sometimes I wouldn’t, but I never made it to the surface. Occasionally there wouldn’t be water and I’d just crash into a ravine and the dream would just end.
Scary dream Indie! Wonder what made them stop after 20 years? Anyway, glad they did!!
