The Dream Thread

    Here is a place where you can talk about your dreams (the nighttime kind) and whether they mean anything or not.  All kinds.  Silly, scarey, frustrated, sexy and on and on.  See, no one wants to listen or talk to me about my dreams in real life, so I figure here, it could happen.

    For instance, last night I dreamed that I got up went out to the kitchen where I had left an ice cream scoop in the sink and my boss was there asking me if I licked the ice cream scoop.  I admitted I had, and he told me he didn't want me to do that anymore because he didn't want my germs.  I started to tell him that I always wash the scoop in hot water, and then I realized I was dreaming. 

    I'm sure you can do better than that!

      Im way excited about this, as everyone really rolls thier eyes at me when I begin about my dreams. I love love love dreams and hearing other peoples dreams.

      last night I had my recurring tooth dream. the one where my teeth crumble and fall out of my mouth, and I cry and say "oh, I've dreamed this so many years and now its finally happening for real." then I wake up. And I also dreamed I yelled at my husband and told him I wanted to poke him in the eye. And I dreamed I was trapped betweeen our world and a spirit world. That one was really long and very real and super scary and I was thinking about making a hub about it, as I also experienced sleep paralysis with that one...

        Our dreams are so much alike - I have the crumbling teeth one and also the crunched contact lens one!  there are always these acquaintances- people I don't really like - watching me when I have these dreams.   Also the sleep paralysis happens to me right after this flying demon comes in through an open window - and is sucking all the energy out of me and I can't move!  oooh that's a real scarey one.

        Did you have all those dreams last night?  Because last night was a horrid dream night for me.  Mostly dreams, very realistic ones, that people were outside yelling and laughing at me and stealing my truck and making loud noises.  My truck's still there, fortunately.

        I also have this teeth dream - it's the only recurring dream I've ever had, really. My teeth don't crumble, though, I just can feel with my tongue that they've all got loose and then they start falling out and I'm really horrified. Then, in my dream, I think about how I'll have to go to the dentist tomorrow and get false ones, then I wake up, thank God, and find them still all there.

        I don't have it any where near as much as I used to though, so obviously whatever was causing it no longer bothering me as much.

    I heard this before...last night I dreamed I was eating a giant marshmellow and this morning my pillow was gone!

    Just kidding, dreams are said to be a way the subconsious mind deals with everyday problems.

    The Celts believed dreams where a doorway to the supernatural

    I believe that.  I also often dream that I am feeling very tingling all over then I have this out of body experience, and then I turn around so my out of body feet are where my real head is - does that make sense?  I'm sort of floating above my body - I would like to go somewhere out of body, but so far I get so excited that I wake myself up before I can actually go places!

        yep - only I haven't seen any golden cord that will keep me attached so I can get back in my body.  I read somewhere about that.

    I studied Astral Projection for years and I found the trick is to plan were you want to go *before* you go to sleep. It takes a lot of willpower and control. Focus on were you want to go and do not let yourself get distracted. That will mess you up every time. I can get really scarry sometimes...

      i think that the proper phrase you are looking for is "the wet dreamer gets the cream"

    I also get this crumbling/moving/missing teeth dream.....it's horrible!

    I would like to know why it's so common.


    As for last night....all I can remember is crossing a big road where the cars started to go before I had time to reach the other side...dunno what that's supposed to mean.

      Polly Cposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I have heard of a few explanations for it, one was decay, so it could be that something in your life is decaying (not necessarily literally) and the other is that it is an anxiety dream, which could explain why it is so common

        One theory is that dreams about your teeth reflect your anxieties about your appearance and how others perceive you. Sadly, we live in a world where appearance and attractiveness matter and your teeth help to convey that image.

      luvpassionposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Franya...seeing a road in your dream often symbolizes your life's path. The condition of the road reflects how much control you have over the direction of your life.

      Tf you started across, this could indicate the barriers that you may have to overcome in order to find your way.

    I have had two horrible dreams lately, though - one in which I was sitting in a car waiting, for some reason, when two men reached in and put their hands out to strangle me...I woke up then.   Then another one about two days ago where I was in this house, not any house I knew, and there was this really strange phenomena happening in the corner of the room....very spooky...there was all this light and powerful feelings, but not nice feelings, (like bad psychic energy) which somehow had something to do with this old lady who had died (it might have been her house) and if you went near this light it was frightening. God, that sounds really complicated and isn't making a whole lot of sense!

    So that was like, two nightmares, and normally I don't remember my dreams much.

      Recent studies show, five minutes after the end of the dream, half the content is forgotten. After ten minutes, 90% is lost.

    Dreams are so confusing that what makes them cool!

  12. luvpassion profile image60
    luvpassionposted 6 years ago

    Your dreaming mind has access to vital information that is not readily available to you when you are awake. Your dreams may reveal your secret desires and subconscious feelings.

    In remembering your dreams, you will gain increased knowledge, self-awareness and self-healing. 

    Dreams are an extensionof how you perceive yourself. They can be a source of inspiration, wisdom, joy and overall improved psychological health.

    A dream diary can be helpful for those looking for enlightenment on their dreams

    I never dream, well it's is claimed that everyone does, and if I do you can't prove it by me, I sleep like a rock and never remember anything other than the few moments before I crash.  It's interesting people actually do dream.

    Wow you know I dream all the time I can fly except sometimes I get stuck  and can't take off......I run and jump but bang no flying.....
    Sometimes I manage to get up in the sky...and I have this huge audience...so I showoff and do somersaults

      If you are flying with ease and enjoying the scene and landscape below, then it suggests that you are on top of a situation.

      You have risen above something. It may also mean that you have gained a different perspective on things.

      Flying dreams and the ability to control your flight is representative of your own personal sense of power.

          Flying dreams typically illustrate your sense of freedom and feeling liberated from the constraints of everyday life.
