If anyone has any good links, explanations, or theories about recurring dreams, now would be a good time to share them with me. I’ve had a set of recurring themes since I was a kid, but over the past week I’ve experienced the exact same dream three times that I can recall.
Let me just say, I never have nightmares. I think I remember when I was a kid, I had one or two frightening dreams, and once when I was meditating as a teenager I came to quite upset because of some visions. But a full-on terror-inducing nightmare – it’s not me.
But three times in the past week I’ve awoken, completely awake, with a sense of dread, of not wanting to return to sleep. WTF.
All I can remember is that a) a female I know in my personal life accompanies me in the dream (who, I cannot remember), and b) there are a lot of ghouls. (Zombies, ghouls, blood-sucking abominations, whatever. They resemble humans, but host no soul. They come in droves. It’s all about the decay or extermination of everything.)
The first two of these dreams I awoke from, I had perished or been cornered in the same place, after the same chronology of events. This morning, I managed to surpass the point and progress further along what may be a predestined series of tribulations within the dream. However, I still perished. And I still awoke stressed.
Anyone willing to play psychoanalyst or occult theoretician, please feel free to drop some comments to help me out.
