The Drama In My Head

Updated on January 29, 2010

Dreams

At first I didn't want to talk about it here...some reading may assume I'm milking a situation, when I'm not...you'll see what I mean later on...I felt inspired.

I dream...alot. Most times it's often funny, crazy nonsense, that makes me smile or even audibly giggle in my sleep and other times, it's scary, thought provoking...a nicer way of saying scary I suppose and somewhat worrying, where a wake up instantly, with a bunny in headlights expression. There are times where I wonder if they have specific meanings. I know not all dreams mean 'something', I'm no expert on this either..what I do know is some of my dreams become reality. I always remember them and can feel, see, touch and sometimes taste things in them...it is weird, surreal...

My Most Recent Dreams

Random family friend dream.

My mother, brother, sister, aunt and I were somewhere...somewhere familiar, that's how it felt, I felt safe in the dream. It was a place I'd been to before but could not recognise it. There were many vending stalls selling ice creams, milkshakes and peanut punch (a favourite of mine). My brother had an ice cream cone, it fell, so mom bough him another.

Seems run of the mill nonsense dreaming right? I could've had a craving moment going on...until my aunt turned to me and said "Do you feel that?" I asked her to explain, she said a spirit is passing by. Between us walked a spirit of some kind. It didn't interact with us, it just carried on along the path. I turned to her and there was a news broadcast...yes breaking news, that someone we know had just died or been killed. My mother looked at us, took out her mobile phone and called his wife...it had been 2/3 days since he died and she didn't even know. Meanwhile my aunt and I buried a doll while she chanted something I've never heard before, which was even more worrying because chanting is not her thing... period! My mother hung up and I woke up.

It was random! too random, I never dream people like that. People that I'm hardly ever around. The are friends of my parents, so they're not on my mind. Why did...is this bothering me? I'm worried it will happen. Why? well that takes me to the dream I had before.

Earthquake. I had earthquakes on the brain for about 2 days. It started with a dream about a really bad earthquake on an island. I saw a beach and just destruction on large scale. It was vivid, lucid and scary. I woke up stupidly, if that makes sense, almost forgetting I was in my bed. I went back to sleep...it was around 4 in the morning. I woke up the next day at 11, went downstairs greeted the family, only to be told by my sister that there was a massive earthquake in Haiti. I was stunned. "I dreamt that...I think?". That was weird and very worrying. Part of me doesn't think I really dreamt that specific earthquake but my mind was just reciprocating thoughts been having. These thoughts I'll admit came out of nowhere. For 2 days I had a dream earthquakey thoughts and then Bam! Haiti.

WTC. I knew they would fall. I didn't grasp the amount of disaster and havoc it would cause...not sure why. The year before we were in New York..our usual family haunt. My great grandmother is American...New Yorkan. I lurve that place. I saw it...I knew they would not be there again...it wasn't a gut feeling but I was close to sure. I wanted to go up top. I lived looking out from on top them. My grandparents were bored of it, they'd been many a time and we had other things to do. It's not like we were tourists, checking out attractions. We lived there...sorta. Granddad turned me down, I knew he would but I retaliated. I said we'd better because they won't be here next year...they weren't...they aren't.

Recurring Dreams

A woman and her baby. These dreams are about 6 years old. In this series of dreams, I help a woman and her baby get somewhere. I can't remember where, all I know is I'm on the road in America, a state somewhere in the middle, in the rural areas. I'm driving in a SUV or pick up trick...both feature in my dreams. I'm driving along this road, in the height of darkness, on a night of a day I'm not sure of. There are tall trees on either side, some look like Teak trees. As I drive I notice the makings of a fence on the left side of the road, definitely in America, I'm driving on the left side.

I drive past something, not sure what it was but I reverse to find out. It happens to be a woman with long dark hair in a long black dress with a baby in her arms, she is a afraid and needs help getting to safety. She never says much but I seem to know exactly what she needs. Without thinking she in the back of my SUV/van/truck and we're on our way. She hovers...almost, she's floaty by nature, her personality I mean.

We go on many adventures in our journey to safety. Some involve fights both physical and verbal even mental. I encounter who she's running from and no matter what I risk my life to help her get there. It takes many dreams to get there and when we do, I'm somewhat surprised that safety was ordinary, just a place, home, where she and her child would be protected. I expected more ...hell I was fighting, getting hurt and risking everything.

She gets out the truck, takes her baby in her arms, I look around the small town, it's few inhabitants. They smile at me and I at them, I get in my truck and drive off. I wake up. I haven't dreamt them since. I couldn't even drive then. I can now...not legally :D will be taking the test soon.

A house on a Beach. Whenever I dream this house, I seem to almost die by water...drowning. It's a house I know, well in my dream I know this house. Situated near a beach. It's aesthetics are similar to one of my grandparents' houses...but it's not that house. We're always going there for a short holiday. My immediate family- gran, granddad parents,siblings,uncle,aunt and her family. Not immediate literally, but they are whom I'm closest to.

In one dream. there's a pool on the beach. I preferred swimming in it at the time because the sea was very choppy that day. I got in and 5 minutes later, everyone else left the pool. I stayed, I was just getting into my stride. the walls of the pool started rising getting taller, and the water was slowly rising with it. the tops of each wall morphed into gates- I was LOCKED IN. The water was almost over my head, no where to go! I felt the water go up my nose and down my windpipe...I was suffocating. Suddenly I woke up...in a fright fit. In one other dream similar to this, I almost died for real. I started suffocating for real. I opened my eyes and see my sister fast asleep. I even tried waking her up but couldn't...said a quick prayer and was able to breathe.

There are many more dreams I could share but this hub would be far to long. Are my dreams premonitions, visions? I'm not sure. Only some of them happen. Will I ever encounter this house? Who knows. I've only dreamt it around 3 times and in my teens. I hope not anyway. Are my dreams just random, subconscious messages...usually but I have a few stand out dreams that have happened.

Randoms

The Hoover. My most recent 'sighting' if I could even call it that.I saw a vacuum cleaner in my room a couple of weeks ago. It was right next to my bed for a few seconds.It was transparent and almost like a shadow. It was a hoover, a tall one. We don't have a hoover like this, ours is little. I was afraid at first, it had been a while since I've experienced something like this. I stared at it for as long as I could, blinked and watched it fade away.

The next morning I was told Great Aunt Olly had died. We knew it was coming she was in a coma for sometime now and the doctors were considering flipping the switch. Why was the hoover sighting significant. I had no idea till my granddad called. He told me she loved to clean and hoovered every morning; to him it made perfect sense.

This sounds silly but usually before the death of someone in the family, I have trouble sleeping, like real trouble. I feel hot, uncomfortable and wide awake but extremely tired for obvious reasons like it being 4:00 am an I'm still 'fannying' about. There is also a feeling of lost...like I'm lost somewhere. This is something that was brought to my attention a year ago.

I often forget and pass my sleepless night to my random mind over matter fear moments or anxiety, until I find out a couple of days later someone has died. I have sleepless nights every now and then but these nights stand out becaue of that niggling lost, eerie feeling. It has happened from my memory or at least me being aware of it happening about 4 times...maybe 5.

When I was younger, my grandparents would tell me that they heard me telling someone or thing that it was not allowed to enter our home. Apparently it happened every now and again. At breakfast the next day my granddad would say he heard talking, would get up to check and hear me in my room talking. My sister confirmed it...we shared rooms then. I have no memory of it.

The purpose of this thread...to unleash some memories my mind randomly conjured and to put my dreams down on hubpage paper. Perhaps someone out there having weird experiences might feel like sharing their dreams or random occurrences, maybe we can create a randomly, weird things alliance.

To be honest, I just felt like sharing.

      This is a lot for one hub. You could easily write a whole group of hubs about your dreams and precognitions. I work with my dreams and the dreams of others as a psychotherapist. There may yet be scientific explanations for some of the things which we experience either as dreams or as precognitions. In the meantime, it is important not to think of your dreams or experiences as 'weird' but to treasure them as part of the specialness which is you.

      I can totally relate to your wierd dreams, I have had weird dreams forever but I have to say that yours seem to be quite stranger than mine. It does sound like you have pyschic tendencies and it also sounds like you are a highly sensitive person as to what happens around you. I don't know the answer but like I tell myself don't dwell 0n it too much. Good hub.

      YAY hearts and music notes tattoos...made my day *blushing* again.

      Hey jen...I know just what you mean. I don't think it's much of a big deal...sometimes I think omg it's a total premonition when really most times it just happens randomnly. Sometimes peopel just have higher intuition than other I guess. I find it weird mostly...

      They do freak me sometimes though.

      Dreams are weird. Someone once told me that you can't die in your dreams. If you're about to die then you wake up. I somehow managed to test this and in a dream one night I jumped in front of a bus ... and woke up. Before I realised that I couldn't die in dreams I used to dream that I was being chased (often by Nazis) but since I realised I couldn't die I haven't had those dreams.

      I think everyone likes to think they have premonitions, I know that often I 'know' something is going to happen before it does. I knew my grandad was going to die before he did, everyone else was quite surprised by it but I just knew. But often I think something is going to happen and it doesn't, so I dno ... perhaps it's all just a coincedence!
