    What type of reoccurring dream have you had in your life?

    Most people have a theme found in their dreams.   Some people may dream of being in high school and finding themselves naked.  Others  may dream of being chased by a monster they cannot see.  What type of dream have you had throughout your life?

    My reoccurring dream is the end of the world dream. I am always alone wondering around, I am not afraid or even said in my dream. Sometimes the backdrop looks like the "Mad Max" movies other times it reminds me of Stephen Kings the Stand, occasionally it looks like a neuclar bomb has been dropped. I haven't had it for awhile.

    As a teenager especially, I'd (every now and then) have a dream of a black panther stalking me through the woods.  It never nailed me, but the stalking was definitely unsettling.

    Much later in life, though, I actually figured out what that had been all about.  I'm the eldest of three, with two younger sisters, and while not "abusive" in any classical sense, there were times I could have been nicer to the middle sister.  Thought I was "getting away with it".

    But at night, in black panther form, that was HER stalking me through the jungle.

    Karma, karma, karma!!

    I have had reoccurring dreams of extraterrestrials, the universe, the president, volcanoes, weather, UFO's, the government,  and becoming pure light and floating towards the sky.

    I had a recurring dream in childhood about a really crazy bridge with loops like a roller coaster - I used to have it pretty frequently but probably haven't had it in at least 10+ years.

    My most common 2 themes of recurring dreams now are

    1) flying (kind of like running in the air) - not scary, just really, really, really fun. I usually feel sad when I wake up and realize I can't actually fly!

    2) I'm in a dance performance and it's almost my turn to go on and I realize a) I don't have my costume on, b) I don't have my hair and makeup done, c) I don't have my pointe shoes on and/or d) I don't know the choreography at all.  The worst are the ones that combine all 4. I frequently have some variation on this dream right before events that I'm anxious about, like the first day of a new semester or a big presentation.

    Throughout my life I have had two reoccurring dreams.

    In the first one I am a young passenger on a three masted sail boat which runs aground on rocks in a storm. I then feel and taste the salty water, cold and enveloping slowly pull me under...then I wake up. I've had that dream for as long as I can remember.

    The second one involves a very abstract, almost cubist world full of large geometric shapes and I am very, very small, microscopic even and it feels like the world around me is closing in. While the first dream is colourful this one is in shades of grey!

    I had this sleeping disorder for a couple of months when I was a teenager, and I think it was because of my very stressful "first relationship". I would fall asleep almost anytime I would sit somewhere comfortable or even standing up in the shower.

    When falling asleep like that, I had these short dreams about my boyfriend leaving me. At first, they were innocent: the two of us in a room, he turns around and walks out the door. But they became more violent, that he would be dragged away or killed before my eyes, that I would be beat up before his eyes, or that he would be the one killing me before he'd walk away.

    I dared not speak about this to anyone, I felt really weird admitting it. I then trusted my best friend, and she advised to talk about it with my boyfriend. We had a nice conversation, where we dissolved all trust issues and jealousy between the two of us. I had the dream once more, when I fell asleep in his arms. I woke up in tears, and he said: "Don't worry, I'll be here for you". Never had that dream or sleeping problem ever since.

    True story, for those sceptic people out there. smile What needs to be added, is that we broke up two months after that and he ended up being really immature about it. Teenagers, huh?

    Actually, the recurring dream I had in my childhood was much like Kate's. The main differences were that the 'coaster' was actually the back of a giant green dragon or feathered snake, and once I came to the end of the 'ride' I would get sucked into a massive clay pot where I would see Jesus. It was a bizarre dream that haunted me until I was about eleven, and have not dreamt it since.
