Interpret This Dream

I dream vivid, detailed dreams. And I love it. I’ve been told by a few people that they feel bad for me “to have to go through all of that at night”. But, I would be really distraught if  for some reason I stopped remembering my dreams.

There are two dreams from childhood I can still recall in vivid detail. One of them is a recurring nightmare. It isn’t always exactly the same, but has a recurring theme. I first had the dream when I was very young; somewhere between three and six years old.

The dream starts with Dad, Mom and me eating dinner. Dad asks me if I remembered to close the yard gate. He tells me I should go close it before our horse, Cricket gets into the yard. I look out the window and see her coming down the driveway toward the gate. I am hurrying to get to the gate before she does, but I am running in slow motion; as if in quick sand. Just as she gets to the gate, she morphs into the nurse that I see each week for an injection. I hate the injections and I don’t like the nurse too much.  I’m terrified from the moment I look out the window and see Cricket coming toward the gate, even though I’m not afraid of her in waking life. I just know I cannot let her get to the gate.

I had the dream again last night… some forty-six to forty-eight years later. Same house, but now I’m an adult. It’s dark and I’m in the house alone. I look out the window to see a man in a car coming down the driveway. I know he means to do me harm. He’s almost to the gate. Getting to the gate before he does isn’t possible. As I try to think how to defend myself, I wake up. The dream has the same feeling; someone is coming that means to do me harm.

I always wake up before the person who’s coming actually gets to the gate.

So, my friends… do you have any dreams that keep replaying? Do you even remember your dreams? And how would you interpret this dream if it were yours?

  1. What an awful feeling that dream must have for you upon waking. I have no idea what it could mean? I used to have a reoccurring dream myself even into adulthood, although not for many years now. I’m in the house that I grew up in. I am in the dining room and I look out the back door that is in the kitchen area. I see mummies walking towards the door. I’m only about 6 years old. I run up the stairs. I’m not sure where my parents or my brothers are. I know I’m safe upstairs because the mummies can’t walk up that many stairs with their stiff legs. Lol. Anyways, they are coming in and going out. When all is quiet I sneak down the stairs, go through the dining room and the kitchen and look out the door. I see them going into on old barnish type building that used to be on our property. I tip toe outside to look into the building. I can see down into the cellar area and see the mummies standing by a conveyor belt and my family are strapped to it. I don’t know what’s at the end of the conveyor belt because I always wake up. This dream has never changed. I think the last time I had it in was in my 30s or 40s.

    1. Wow, Traci! Mummies are terrifying. You must have been very affected by the thought of your family being at the mercy of mummies.
      Thank you for reading, and for sharing your experience with recurring dreams. I use a dream interpretation book to decipher my dream symbols. It’s very interesting.
      Just for fun… the book says mummies represent the need to wake up to your creative spirit that resides within you. 🙂 And that a recurring nightmare is calling you to face a fear that’s holding you back.

      Thanks again for taking the time to read and comment. Hope to chat with you again.
