Your Weirdest Dreams

Recommended Posts

I've posted before about some vivid dreams I have had. These seem to be increasingly common and the imagery lingers for long enough to be able to recall them - sometimes for weeks.

Perhaps they're trying to tell me something. I do have a house party organised for Friday which I am looking forward to, so this isn't a complete co-incidence.

Last night's one involved me getting home to find a party had been organised for me.

I don't recall the peoples' faces at said party, but the enduring image is of walking into my living room to see a group of people floating and dancing in the air, to whom gravity had ceased to apply.

And the last image was of one of our cats joining in, also floating in the air, wearing a party hat and clutching a balloon.

OK, that particular dream was mine, but I'm sure people must have had similarly entertaining and/or disturbing ones. Do spill the beans..

How about the giant whelks the size of a small van? Coming out of the sea, and invading the high street!

I was just about to start the same thread yesterday - but ****** I have forgotten what my random dream was about.

Once dreamt I was standing at one of those long urinals and my knob slipped off and floated down towards the drain. Bit weird.

Every man dreams about the nob falling off. I had to put mine back on with a stapler.

Like DT Mark dreams about levitating are reoccurring with me. More specifically my ability to levitate not the cat, and musing that I got beat the world long jump record easily with my special ability.

The other reoccurring nightmares are usually about houses and education, basically I have bought some God forsaken money pit that is falling apart, or I am still stuck in full time education as an adult. The latter really leaves me in a cold sweat until I realise I did leave all that behind when I was 15.

I had a dream recently where I was forced to be in close proximity to the neighbour from hell. We ended up talking but I was blunt with her and we didn't carry on chatting.
I had a horrid feeling when I woke up about it all.

Ah the house nightmare again. In a similar vein I dream I wake up and draw the curtains of my nice new house and all the chav youth are congregated in front of the house as it is the local hangout. I think I am more cut out for renting tbh at least you can move from your mistake.

I just remembered - I dreamt last night I was a spiky haired IT consultant who drove a souped up Ford Fiesta, liked Euro Techno and had a ponchont for Tom Daly in his speedos.

****** me - it was scary. I never want to sleep again.

Ah, the 'detacheable *****' dream. Quite common apparently, I've had it (the dream, I mean) myself a few times. There was even a pop song about it a few years ago. I think it's supposed to be a fear of loss of control and masculinity or something.

Most of my dreams these days are post-apocalyptic, in full colour 3D with surround sound, zombies etc. What strikes me is how emotional they are. In one, I dreamt I was still married to my ex-wife, and we were about to be killed by a firing squad. We embraced and swore undying love to each other. It was quite moving really, and not like real life!

I have a theory that this is due to a lot of positive thinking/mindfulness drills I've been practicing lately. The ego doesn't like it, because it senses its control is slipping, and so the anxiety/worry that the conscious mind pushes out comes out in dreams.

I am extremely pleased to say I have never in my memory had a dream about my knob falling off! I do get very vivid dreams though. One from years ago that sticks in my memory was being taken to my own execution in a Junk boat across Hong Kong harbour, with all my family on the shore watching me go. I remember above all a deep sense of sadness and loneliness about the whole thing.

Being a bit of a geek about this stuff, I created a little database and started recording lots of info about my dreams for a few months. The reason for it was I read that dream imagery has specific meanings to the individual, and it's nowhere near as simple as saying for example that dreaming about falling means you're scared of losing control etc. I actually started to glean some useful information once I was able to compare multiple dreams where the same imagery appeared.

I haven't done it for a while, as I find it takes a lot of commitment and needs to be done as soon as you wake up before you forget, but a worthwhile exercise if you can find the time.

I have noticed that Nightmares have taken on a new level of disturbing proportions, gone are the days of childhood monsters. One nightmare that I have been unable to shake despite only having dreamt it once was involving my Grandma. We were at her house and she was on her death bed and we are going through her photo albums. I open one and it is filled with the most hardcore pornography you can imagine, and to my shock and disgust it is my Grandma as a young woman who is in the photos. My other family members take the album from me and flick through it, commenting as if it were any other photo album, totally unmoved by the depravity of the photos. It's like they can't see the real photos, and all the while I have that empty, sick feeling building in my chest and stomach - the kind you get when dealt very bad news. I woke up from that one very disturbed, so much so that I couldn't get back to sleep. Definately one of my weirdest Nightmares in a long time.

Early onset Alzheimers I'm afraid either that or your boiler is emitting carbon monoxide.

Don't worry. It's only a dream, it's all in your filthy, depraved mind.

I've had a recurring dream of being naked in public ever since I was at primary school. It's definitely linked to periods of insecurity or being found out. Funny thing is in some of them I just think '****** it' and accept walking around naked in public.

I did go through periods of dreaming that I couldn't run, which I guess is also linked to insecurity.

I also had a period of recurring nightmares where my granddad was still alive but he couldn't speak. They were incredibly upsetting as he died pretty suddenly, we were close and we still had so much to say to each other.

As a kid I had a recurring dream where I was chased full pelt down a never-ending steep hill by a hurtling giant malteser.

I woke up crying from a dream last week. I hate that as it leaves me with an awful sense of loss for the day.

My niece has just had twins and one is currently in ICU with heart problems that can't be operated on until she's grown. I dreamt something awful had happened and I only found out about it through Facebook. I was so upset but oddly, in my dream, the upset was that nobody had told me directly and I'd found out online.

Since I was little I've had many dreams about abandonment and also about being excluded from things. I always seem to wake up crying from these.

:( Well I hope she is OK in the end.

I think you might be right. These odd dreams may well coincide with the hypnotherapy recordings I listen to sometimes - happening on that night.

It seems to be that when I wake before the alarm goes off (one for the over 40s thread for sure) I snap awake very sharply and can see the imprint of the dream very clearly.

This one was back in May:

I was on holiday somewhere like Ibiza in a big group and two of the group had got a flight but didn't have a room in the hotel, so they were sleeping in a sort of upright trolley that the linen is stacked in which had been left in the corridor outside the rooms.

The two people were James Corden and Johnny Depp, curling themselves up into a space about the size of a bath towel in order to hide. I turned the trolley thing back around so they were facing the wall again and then we all went out on the p***.

I also have a recurring one about being stuck in a shopping centre from which I cannot escape.

I dreamed my willy fell off and ran away from home. It kept sending me postcards from all over Europe. Then it stood for elections in Italy and became Prime Minister.

Eventually it was deposed in a coup by giant whelks and returned home. We were reunited. Hugs all round.

When did you last watch Mary Poppins?

Very good :)

I'm not sure but I don't think I have ever actually seen the entire film.

I just remembered - I dreamt last night I was a spiky haired IT consultant who drove a souped up Ford Fiesta, liked Euro Techno and had a ponchont for Tom Daly in his speedos.

I can see how that might be terrifying. At least you only have to imagine it ;)
