    What is the weirdest recurring dream you have?

    I often dream that I am trying to find a toilet when I am in a strange town! The funniest thing is that the toilets are always made of wood, falling down, or up in the wall so I have to climb up! And no its not because I have a weak bladder! lol! the rest of the dream is just as weird. I can't find who I was with, never know who they are, but I expect they have run of in embarrassment!

    That is a strange one there you have.  LOL  I don't remember my dreams, except two in my whole lifetime.  The strangest dream I still remember to this day, as it was a recurring dream, was that a huge sumo wrestler was chasing me, and I could never run very fast, just in slow motion.  It would always start out in my neighbor's backyard on top of a hill and then I would be running towards my house, and then wake up.  So weird to say the least.

    I have a reccuring dream about a natural disaster that I have to "save" my family from. It's usually either a bunch of tornados or a volcano. Fitting because we are in the blast zone for the super volcano in Yellowstone wink

      Sounds like yellowstone is on your mind a lot, which is really helpful if you think about it, at least in your dream you have done the safety training! lol! thanks!

      @phtech, I am constantly dreaming about tornadoes and the beaches overflowing. It scares me because of all these tornadoes that have recently gone on.

    I was staying in a house in Kuala Lumpur and I always dreamt of a cocktail party filled with dead people in Chinese dynastic costumes... an oddity because ancient Chinese don't drink cocktail.

    It always happened when it was too hot and I slept on the floor. All of a sudden, the room would be very noisy, like a market. And the room would be fully packed, so much so that there was hardly any walking space. And they would walk around me so as not to step on me.

    I still do not understand the significance of this often-repeated dream. It only happened in that room where I stayed for over a year, and nowhere else.

      It sounds very much like sleep paralysis to me, which is caused by awakened dreaming. I wrote a hub about it. what a fascinating dream, maybe it was real, a costume party that somehow has imprinted on the room? time slip.

    Nell, I often dream of toilets, too. In my dreams, I am always trying to use the toilet but the toilet has no door and there are people watching me so I couldn't do what I wanted to do. A few years ago, I had the same dream and decided it was no big deal if the toilet didn't have a door. I did a pee, that's when I woke up and found I had done it on my bed and my sleeping partner!

    I have two. One is that I'm a kid and that I'm forgotten at our weekend house that was in the middle of nowhere. I'm adopted so I know that's all about abandonment. I wrote one of my best poems about that.

    The other is that I'm in a house that I'm familiar with and that I find a door, which leads to new and different rooms I didn't know about. I love that dream!

    That I am lost in the halls of my high school which is weird because I gave tours of the new high school we moved into it when I was a junior and knew that school like the back of my hand.

      Isn't it funny john, how we have these 'lost' dreams. maybe it is showing us how we felt at the time. being nervous of making a mistake when you started doing the tours? thanks for the comment, nell

    Lately I am getting one dream all over. I am at the train station. I am holding a little kitten in my hands. Suddenly I stand up on a rails and watching a train approaching me. As it is very close to me and keep approaching fast I throw the poor kitten against the train. Suddenly the train disapear and I smile.

    A friend of mine explained me that dream as follow: The train represents all the stress and negativity. The kitten represents innosence and kindnest. By throwing the kitten against the train simply means I try to fight the negativity by trying to change it into something positive.

    I am not sure if that sounds oki but being insane is not that bad, right?

    The recurring dream, throughout many years, for me, is that I am "somewhere," either in a car or on foot...or some of each.....in an unknown place....often alone, but sometimes I'm with another person (who I talk to, but I don't recall in the morning if I KNEW that person)....and all I want is to get away from where I am...and go home to familiarity and comfort.  I feel very upset and frantic in this dream, because I don't know how to get home.....and no one seems to be able to help me.
    I HATE when I have this dream, because I wake up feeling exhausted.

      Hi paula, isn't it strange how many of us are either lost or in a place we don't want to be? I see a pattern here, I often get the lost dream too. it may be that we all feel lost in everyday life but we don't realise it.

    Hi Nell.
    I have two recurring dreams, one is that I am in the UK or somewhere else and can´t get back to Spain , it´s horrible because I know I have guests coming for holidays and nothing is ready for them, nor am I here to let them in.
    The other equally horrible dream is that I am over run with gypsies or beggars and they are all over my land and trying to get in my house to steal everything. Both are really upsetting nightmares and I wake in a panic from them.

      Nell Roseposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Hi anne, I think its because you don't want to come back from spain, maybe I am wrong but you feel its your home. The beggars are the people who may take over, metaphorically of course, your home when you move/

    Had a repeated dream from the age I was five that I fell of the balcony of the skycraper and before I reach the ground I always woke up. Went to try skydiving to get rid of this nightmare and it had help. The funny thing was I have always lived on the first floor or on the ground.

    I often dream of dolphins. I've no idea why but the worst one was when I saw these dolphins in a pool in the distance but when I got up close they were pigs!

    I will say that I have by far the weirdest and most vivid dreams. About a year ago for months every night I was dreaming of tornados. Lots of tornados. I was standing right next to them and they weren't doing anything to me. Around the same time I kept having dreams of me being down the shore with family and something like a Tsunami accuring. Those two natural disasters were recurring dreams of mine for months.

    Hi Nell. I had a recurring dream for probably about 6 years. I was always trying to call my husband in these dreams. I would be in different places every time and sometimes other people would be around, sometimes I was alone. I always felt frantic and desperate to get a hold of him. But something would happen each time and I was never able to reach him. Sometimes the phone would not dial, I got a busy signal, no one answered, etc.
    One day they just went away and I haven't had that dream since.

    I have two recurring dreams that are only different in one way - what I'm running from. I no longer have nightmares. None of my dreams frighten me regardless of what it is chasing me. The two dreams I have I am with a group of people & we are either trying to escape zombies or dinosaurs (usually a T-rex). The lay out is always the same just the threat changes. In the end we get on a plane & fly off (just barely).

    Dreams are so interesting! Your dream is funny!
    I have been dreaming for decades about someone I dated in high school. It alternates, sometimes he's pursuing me and I'm not interested and other times I'm interested and he's not. He and I were very good friends but lost touch. I have fond memories of him, but don't feel romantic toward him. We saw each other a few years ago at a high school reunion and seeing confirmed that I don't feel romantic toward him yet I continue to have the same dream. Unexplainable.
    Fun question!
