What did you dream about when you were a child?

    What did you dream about when you were a child?

    Flying, with my feet tucked up behind me and held by my hands, leaning to change direction.
    Being chased and trying to run but being held back by my feet seemingly being in mud.
    These were recurrent dreams, the first one good, the latter not good.
    Childhood dreams reflect fears and wishes, failure and success.  I don't have either of these dreams any more and haven't had them for many years.
    Good question.

    I had two recurring dreams since childhood and up until about 10 years ago when a friend explained them to me and I stopped having them.
    Dreams:
    l.  My mother is standing in the doorway of my bedroom.  I go to her and she hugs me.  As this is happening I see my mother walk by me down the hallway.
    2.  I'm treading water in a large enclosed domed tank lit with indirect lighting.  The water goes all the way to the wall of the tank and I have no idea how deep it goes.
    Meanings:
    1.  Was about the fact my father left us and I knew I couldn't trust him.  Now I was worried I wouldn't be able to trust my mother either.
    2.  I felt powerless.
    Interesting question.

    When I was a boy, I wanted to become a Driver in a transport bus.  In our village we did not have roads or vehicles.  We had to travel around 2 hours by boat to reach where we can see a bus.

    When ever travel on a transport bus, I sit near to the driver and watch.  I wanted to be a driver then.  I like the way the driver turn the staring wheel and change the gear and clutch, accelerator  etc.   I enjoyed it and imitated him back in my home.

    I used to have this recurring dream that I was sitting in the front seat of the car between my parents and we were driving to McDonalds, but no matter how far or fast we went the restaurant stayed the same distance away.  Hows that for symbolism?

      Were you allowed to sit by the wheel as a kid, ever? Did you have metabolic cravings: did you want anything salty or sweet?

      Sixty years ago, I had a recurring dream of being behind the wheel of a car on a hill. As an infant, I wasn't big enough to drive the car and looking to my younger infant brother (in the dream) was no help.

    When I was a child, I dreamed of space travel and planets close enough to hop from one to another like islands in the Caribbean.

    I still get a rush out of the opening scene of Star Wars, with the planet below and giant starship looming overhead. Or the scene with the Millennium Falcon blasting off. When I left Mann's Chinese theater that evening in 1977, I was suddenly shocked back to the reality that this planet doesn't have starships. Alas!

    I had a recurring dream of flying all over town. It seemed so real and it was very nice. I also had a recurring dream of owning my own horse, and I could ride it anywhere I wanted. One time I woke up, only to find the dream wasn't real. I felt so bad I cried...When I was little, my Dad would jokingly call me  horse:)

    Mostly: flying.  I loved my flying dreams.  I remember the experience of feeling very light in my body and then lifting off the ground and then being astral and seeing the world.  Very cool.  (I miss it, haha).
