    Hi everyone,
    I can put a little insight into a certain type of dreams. Have you ever dreamt of someone who has passed away? Well, that's called a "visitation" dream. They're just saying hi & letting you know they love you that they're OK. :halo: I found this out from one of my friends. (She's big on angels & things like that.) When my dad passed away I had a lot of dreams about him (This was before my friend told me they were "visitation dreams")

    What do you do if you dream of someone passing away before they do? I mean, I KNEW I shoulda called in that day. I'm getting better, but it doesn't change the fact that I dreamed about what was going to happen.

    Or simply to those of us who are open to the experience. Not pleasant but can be useful.

    I agree with Kathy. Sometimes those are just "I miss this person" dreams...but sometimes they can be contact. But hey, that's me...

    I dreamed last night that there were lots of birds' nests in the yard with lots of dead adult birds, maybe one live one. Then Jareth shows up and looks like someone beat the living daylights out of him. That poor, poor owl-inspired costume of his. Sigh ....

    Um...you're unsatisfied with your current circumstances and wish you could be something else...or that you feel others are forcing you to be something you're not?
    I used to have similar dreams until I gained better control over my own circumstances.

    Jeez, boi...

    Last night was one of those nights where I'd wake up every little while, and each timne I fell back asleep, the dreams kept getting weirder and weirder, and made litler and littler sense... and once I woke up for the morning, I didn't remember a single one of them, lol.

    Dreams is something I wish I knew more about. I have some really odd and disturbing dreams. Has anyone ever had a dream so bad they wake up and feel like dirty and think "how could i dream something like that?" I've had a few of those kinda dreams in my life....
    On the plus side I've had some okay dreams too. A recuring one I keep having is me going into an abandoned thrift store and finding a buttload of VHS tapes of mostly muppet stuff, stuff that doesn't even exist (I think i've metnioned it before in another thread but i once had a dream like that where i found a VHS that said "Fraggle Rock Babies").

    Actually, you atre not alone my friend, I too have had dreams that have me waking up and asking myself how could I dream something like that... luckily, however, those dreams seem rather very few and quite far between... in fact, I really can't remember when's the last time I've had such a dream, or what it was about, or who was involved, or where it was set, etc.

    that's good, but a few of those have stuck with me..i hate dreams like that too you can't stop thinking about em. I remember bad dreams more often than i remember good dreams..weird how that works eh?

    Probably because the bad dreams may have more of an impact on you than good ones do... kind of like when things happen in your life, the bad experiences are etched in your mind forever, wheras the good stuff tends to fleet your memories overtime.

    True Snowth. Bad stuff is far easier to dwell on than good, unfortunately.

    If you're having guilt dreams ("how could I do that?"), there may be unresolved issues within your mind, things you think should be "wrong", but keep in mind the dream-events might not be literal. Something you do in a dream which upon waking you feel is terrible might just be your brain's way of symbolically dealing with some other issue. Think about what each person/thing might symbolize -- and no, don't get a dream dictionary, those things are bunk! Everyone's inner symbology differs!

    I moved past guilt dreams when I accepted certain things about myself. I'm rarely in control in my dreams, but they rarely leave me feeling awful anymore.

    Newsie has a point about dwelling on things that you think should be wrong, then it slipping into your subconscience... that happens to me quite frequently for the past couple of years or so.

    Dreamt last night that my childhood best friend (who fell out with me when I moved here, long story but that was 11 years ago) got back in touch with me...but she'd become a prim, proper, Republican sort who was dismayed at everything about me! No, it would never ever happen, even though we haven't spoken in years...but a bummer still to wake up from.

    And my cat had stolen about 75% of my pillow again...

    All this talk about pathetic lunch periods in school and such has made me realize that lunch period is actually a recurring dream I have occasionally... though for some reason, the "horrors" of lunch period seem to be overly exaggerated in the dream to the point where the whole dream is more like a surreal and eerie adventure in itself: trying to get through the mile-long lunch lines, coming in contact with the evil lunch ladies, trying to find your way through the crowdedness, etc... it's almost like a cafeteria from Dinohattan.
