Excellent thread and dreams are an amazing thing – very hard to describe – why we have them, do they mean anything – surely they must mean something – is it our subconscious still churning through what’s stored in our mind and then how on earth does it then select what you then dream about??
To me it’s a bit like pressing “random shuffle” when you’ve got a play-list of about 10,000 items and the subconscious will come up with something no doubt from your past – and include in it, perhaps people from your past, perhaps people who are in your life currently, perhaps people who you may have never met; or perhaps a combo of any of the aforementioned.
For me, they can be very nice OR they can be very bad. And when I say that, that’s to a level that if they’re nice, it makes me sad to wake up because of how excellent the dream was; however alternatively, when they’re bad, I wake up and am so so relieved that it was a dream. Here’s a little thought to share with you though – I’ve dreamt on many occasions that my partner will be leaving me or has done, etc etc along those lines – obviously I’m over the moon when I wake up because it IS just a dream, BUT for some reason I feel real bad towards her for a while – almost as if the dream was real and then I’ve found out something bad and yeah, this probably isn’t making any sense at all.
I had one last night where somehow I entered a licensed club and was playing a dollar poker machine and it started paying and so I upped my bet and it was paying like it would never pay in the real world, it was going ballistic and as I got a feature it paid even more – and I looked around and saw my brother there – the one I haven’t spoken too for over 6 years – I played it down to: $92,370 !! Can you imagine?
And I asked him could he please collect it for me as I’m supposed to be banned. I handed over the ticket and just after that, I was met by security who escorted me out. The next day, my brother collected the money for me and gave it to me and he left – as I walked to my car, I noticed two shady figures following me – one came to me just as I was opening my car door, I turned and some how managed to do a side karate kick to his throat and he was gawn – then that was the end of the dream. At that point, I woke up.
I think I watch too much TV !!!
ps: yes I was disappointed that I woke up, cause I'd just smashed a baddy and was about to start on a shopping spree with my newly won cash!!
