Okay, I’m not one of those people who believe that every dream has a hidden meaning, that they are a significant insight into your psyche/ state of mind, or that they can be seen as a premonition of things to come, but I find them really interesting. - I mention this because I have had quite a lot of broken sleep lately, interspersed with dreams, most of which I can’t remember.
Was talking the other day with friends about this, and was surprised to hear that several of them have recurring dreams on a fairly regular basis. Usually concerning similar themes. One friend in particular has been having the same dream for over twenty years, and cannot relate the visions to anything particular in his life. It’s just there, sitting in his subconscious.
I know when I was much younger, I also had two dreams in particular that would crop up again and again, and I remember them being very vivid and frightening at the time. - One was witnessing a large passenger plane crashing into the farm fields opposite my house, and seeing the aftermath in gory detail. - The second dream involved witnessing an invasion of enemy tanks trundling down my street, each one stopping infront of a house and turning their guns on the windows. - Really frightening stuff for a kid to be dreaming and I don’t know what could have triggered those thoughts to enter my subconscious, but they remained there for a number of years and cropped up perhaps once a month.
Anyone else have any powerful dreams, either as a child or now? I guess we can read more into those that are recurring, as they are obviously thoughts that we carry with us.
