These Dreams

Weird dreams last night. Weeeeeeeeiiiirrrrrdddd!

It took years for me to understand why I kept having certain recurring thematic dreams. Once I analyzed it, they stopped.

Now must figure this one out. I hate how strange dreams continue their haunting in the sun.

Me, too! First I dreamed I'd married somebody besides Scott (baaaaaaad dream). Then I dreamed Scott and I were running a Pizza Hut while he was teaching school, and I was trying to teach his students how to put out a salad bar.

It was a relief when the alarm went off, let me tell you!

I have never acted out in my dreams, but the other night I kicked the crap out of my hubby. He hollared and said "What???" I said "Oh sorry, dreaming.." "Who did you kick?" he said. *I said our daughter's name* who is 16 and we are actually getting along well right now, so I don't know what that means. Especially considering I have never kicked anyone, ever. I don't hit period.
Hmm... deep meaning. But I can't remember what I was so mad about.

Rae, see my comment on your manifesto.

I think recurring dreams are fascinating in and of themselves. It's like they take on a life of their own inside your mind.

I used to have one about discovering another room, or whole area, within my house that I never knew about. Very bizarre, and the setting was different every time. One time I discovered a pub connected to my house! That was kind of the height of weirdness in that thread. Anyway, we decided to add on a room to our current home, and since then I haven't had that dream. I did analyze it though, so maybe that helped as well.

And a while back I was having some dreams I didn't like at all. I then read somewhere that if you tell yourself not to have those dreams they'll go away. That worked for me, but I had to talk to myself a lot before it worked. Guess that falls again into your theory about analyzing the dream. Talking it out and then telling yourself what you think about it seems to do the trick. I guess our subconscious is like a register of what we’re sensing versus what we know. Does that make any sense at all?

Anyway, thanks as always Rae, for an interesting and meaningful discussion.
