I'm Superwoman in my Dream

Vivid Dream Definition

The definition of 'vivid dreams' according to vocabulary.com:

I've Always had an Active Dream Life

I have always been a big dreamer since I was a young girl. Most mornings I can remember at least ten vivid dreams. My family enjoys gathering in the kitchen to recall accounts of their dream journey the night before. It's become a fun competition to see who has the most entertaining dream. I'd like to give you a peek into my active dream life by sharing one of many, from last night.


My Bizarre Dream

Before I begin telling you about my dream, I need to preface it with some needed information. The last couple of days in Minnesota have been a mixed bag of strange weather. It went back and forth between raining, sleeting and snowing. I am an avid fan or watching the local news and have my favorite stations. Most of the time I watch channel nine and the anchors and reporters have come to feel like part of my family. The other day when they were talking about the developing weather storm, they sent one of their reporters out in a car. I felt kind of bad for the guy as he was driving around telling us how dangerous it was getting on the roads. Enough information, here's my dream.

I'm a roving reporter for channel nine news and driving my car to do a segment about the status of the winter storm that has just started brewing. My co-pilot in the passenger seat is none other than Jeff Passolt. Jeff is our local, well known anchor in real life, for channel nine. Jeff and I are driving around when we suddenly hit a slick spot in the road. The car becomes air born and I think to myself, "this isn't a good situation and I don't want Jeff getting hurt." I make a plan in my head that will save my co-worker and myself from impending death. I roll down my window before we make impact. When the car is just ready to land on the road, I put my arms out of the window. I'm obviously hanging upside down and drop my hands to the ground to hold the car up. I'm like Superwoman as I patiently steady the car until Jeff gets out. Once I maneuver myself and crawl out, Jeff immediately asks how I managed to have the superhuman strength to bench a car like it was a paper weight. I humbly retort that it must have been the fight or flight reaction of adrenaline. He stares at me; eyes wide with awe and disbelief and says, "are you in any pain?" I tell him, "my arms are a little sore and my back is probably going to kill me later, but other than that, I'm good." Jeff and I, for the most part, come out of the car accident unscathed because I'm like some kind of superhero.

After having this weird dream, I thought It would be funny to contact the news station. I sent them my story via twitter and asked them to share it with Jeff, the news anchor, They tweeted me back about an hour later and said they got a kick out of it and made a copy to give to Jeff.

I am always having crazy dreams! I once dreamed that I took a waterslide from Colorado to Costa Rica, stopping for ice cream, snacks and sunblock the whole way south. Haha. Fun hub! Voted up.

Wow!! That's some super-dream! Too funny, the screwy stuff that happens in dreams.

I usually sleep too long after my last dream to remember it, unless it's of the type that wakes me up.

I remember my mother telling of a super-human dream she used to have on a rather regular basis, though: someone or something would be chasing her, and her feet were like lead, so she'd get down and 'run' on her forearms with her legs in the air, and she could go like the wind and escape.

LOL...Most of the dreams I remember are not for public discussion, and usually involve your body alerting you to get up for a nature call.... :(

Voted up, funny and interesting. The study of dreams and hidden meanings is fascinating.

I had a dream about my Mother whom I didn't get to say Goodbye to before she died. In my Dream we are talking and I tell her how much we miss her and she says "I miss you too, but I didn't know that I would be able to work here. I thought Dear God, let her be your Secretary! when I told my Aunt (her sister) about the dream, she said, you did get to say Goodbye in that dream.

I loved your Dream Minnetonka Twin, Fun especially for you to be able to share with the News Station.

Wow! Thats is some amazing dream recall power, ten a night- whew! 'My arms are a little sore'...oh my. The dream says a lot about you but I'm not sure exactly what lol. Really though, it's a great one I love it too. Bet Jeff did get a big kick out of it.:)

Amazing dream, Linda, and you seem to remember most of the details. I keep a pad and pencil next to my bed so if I awake right after a dream, I can write down some of the details. Only problem - when I look at my notepad in the morning, I can't read my writing. Heh, heh.

drbj cracks me up..LOL.. What a dream you had, reminds me of a dream my Sister Bea had, she said that she and a neighbor were out in the yard talking across the fence when they looked up and saw another neighbor flying overhead, my Sis said that the neighbor said, " Look at that " My Sis said, " Oh that's Mabel, she never did learn to drive " HaHa..Take care..Fun hub..

Hi Audrey-Ya, I'm glad they gave it to Jeff too. Why not share the craziness!! :-0 Thanks for stopping.

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

b.Malin-You bet you got to say goodbye to your mom. One of the biggest ways I have had heavenly visits is through my dreams. Dreams can be so powerful and it's a non-scary way to see our loved ones that have passed. I'm really glad you had that dream to bring you some comfort.


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

Hi Deborah-That's why I keep my journal close to me at my bed stand. That way I know I wont forget the dream. Thanks for reading one of my strange dreams. My mind never stops; even at night when I'm sleeping.


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

Ya Alastar-What does it mean? Maybe I feel powerful as of late which kind of makes sense. I hope Jeff enjoyed the dream. I'm a big believer in sharing my craziness with others. I love how you called me superwoman in your comment to me in one of your hubs. I got a real kick out of it. I feel so powerful!! LOL

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

drbj-that's so funny about not being able to read your writing. I do the same thing and I have a hard time reading my writing too. This last dream I didn't write down but I remembered it all. Maybe It's because I had it early in the morning before I woke up.

What a great dream, I have read of your dreams before, they are amazing and so many in one night!! I have quite vivid dreams but nowhere near as prolifically as you do. I wonder if your arms did get sore - do you have any physical aftermaths. Thank you for sharing this awesome and funny dream. My votes to you MT.

Definitely a random dream lol, although I also like the water-slide one. I hardly ever remember my dreams, I'm sure they are odd too, just slip from my mind when I wake.

Thanks for SHARING.


Sunnie Day 4 years ago

Very funny dream..You wonder why we have such silly dreams out of nowhere! My husband just woke up and said he dreamed he caught all the grandkids in the garden and they had pulled up all our new seedlings. haha

I guess cause we are planting today so that was on his mind..Hahah


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

Thanks for reading my bizarre dream Rosemay. I dream so much and I've decided to share some of them. Why let them go to waste. My mind comes up with some pretty crazy stuff. I thought it was funny I was like a super hero. Good for my ego. LOL


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

Fennelseed-Wouldn't that have been spooky if I got sore the day I woke from this dream. That would've really freaked me out but no, I had no physical pain from my super hero feats. Thanks for coming by, I appreciate it.


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

Hi Brett-Ya, it's strange that I remember so many dreams and I've been like that since I was a kid. This dream was so funny with me being some sort of super hero. Maybe I'm feeling powerful these days or something. LOL


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

Ha-I hope your husband wont be too hard on the grand kids. Remind him it was 'just a dream.' LOL I studied dream interpretation when I was getting my Master's degree in Psychology and one type of dream comes from things on your mind or something you've done recently which is the type your husband had. Have a great week Sunnie :-)

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

I thought I had left a comment for you always exploring but just noticed I didn't. So sorry! I think the dream your sister had was hilarious. When they saw the neighbor flying, was she flying with or without a plane. I am guessing she was flying solo. Too funny! It's pretty funny some of the things our minds come up with in our dreams.

Awesome dream, I am a active dreamer also. I actually think it would be strange to not dream at all. My dad doesn't remember the last time he had a dream. Weird. He says he thinks it might be cool to have a dream sometime. I wonder if there is something out there that can make someone dream. Great hub!!

i had the flying dream when i was young, and i was flying over some dunes and i saw hundreds of tanks, and i started shooting grenade launchers at them but somehow a Walmart store showed up out there in the middle of nowhere and i completely wiped out one of the walls. to much tv i think lol. my favorite dreams were being the horse and the wolf, they were intense. perhaps i will write hubs about them, thanks for the idea. have a great night

A superhero dream - I wonder what that means? I'm always curious what some of my more crazy dreams mean, but yours has to be something great! And, you remember ten dreams a night? I wish I could. I'm lucky to remember one. Usually they're gone in a snap! Very interesting hub!

What a dream! Wouldn't it be nice if superheroes do really exist? I bet.

But everyday, we have unsung heroes who do small deeds with a great heart. I believe that you are one. Your writing makes someone else's day better than good. Thank you.


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

Theseus-Your comment touched me and made my day :-) you are right that there are many everyday heroes that don't necessarily need to be superhuman. So many stories you see on the news of people who die to save others in a time of need. Thanks so much for taking time to read about my dream.


PWalker281 4 years ago

This is a fun hub, MT. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just transfer those dream powers to real life? I sometimes dream I can fly, or run along the highway as fast as a car. It's a lot of fun until I wake up and have to get three cups of coffee to get going lol!

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

I love flying in dreams too Molly. I think this was my first as a super hero dream. LOL


quietinstrumental 4 years ago

Hilarious! I'm the opposite way with recollection, unfortunately: most I get these days is the vague feeling that I've had a weird dream of nigh-David Lynchian proportions. Usually nothing specific, though sometimes I might encounter a mnemonic trigger later in the day. Wish my memory was as vivid as yours!


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

That's funny quietinstrumental-I think we all want what we don't have. I sometimes wish my dreams weren't so vivid. Some of them are darn right freaky. I keep dreaming about my brother who passed away and I'm the only one who can see him. It's nice but kind of creepy too.

Linda, I remember the name Jeff Passolt my years in MN. Guess what? When we got to CA, I turned on the news and the anchor was (and still is) ??? Paul Majors. Every time I see him, I don't know whether I'm in MN or CA. Oh wait, I look outside at the palm trees and I know. Did you know that a very small percentage of the poulation have flying dreams? I think it's one percent. It's said to be a mark of creativity. Johnny Carson had flying dreams and I had one only once and I barely got off the ground. (tee hee). I like the theory that we pun and make plays on words a lot in our dreams and in re-reading mine, I can find the puns and their meaning. Of course, the puns are only meaningful to you. (and maybe your twin sister :)


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 3 years ago from Minnesota Author

I had heard that Jeff was in California. Is he as popular there as he was here? I am guessing he's doing great.

OMG-I have had so many flying dreams in my life. In my Master's program in Psychology, we learned that flying dreams mean that we are either feeling free of some problems or that we want to get away from problems. It's really cool to hear that it expressed the creative side of a person. I want to go back to my countless dreams now and see the puns. What a great factoid-thanks Billie :-) P.S.-Thanks for reading about my crazy dream.
