‘Never Stop Dreaming’
I’ve always had vivid dreams, even from a young age. I’ve had reoccurring dreams, dreams that felt so real I wasn’t sure if I was awake or asleep and dreams that will probably stick with me forever.
When I was younger I used to have a reoccurring dream about a fairground, sometimes the dream would differ slightly as to whether it was night or day time and the number of other people at the fairground would also change. The only factor that remained the same was that I was there alone without family or friends but I wasn’t afraid or worried of anything I was happily wandering around and going on the rides and playing games at the stalls. Every time I dreamt of this fairground I did often do different things but my mind had created a very vivid map of this fairground so that the rides and stalls were always in the same position. I can’t remember when this dream started to happen regularly or when it ended but it’s not something I dream about anymore. I do however now have a very similar dream except the location has now changed to a shopping centre.
My dreams are always in colour and they more often than not include people I know in it but sometimes these are people I haven’t seen for years. I don’t really ever have nightmares but I did have one after watching the film ‘Oculus’ where in my dream I wasn’t able to scream but I was in fact screaming in my sleep without realising, safe to say I scared the crap out of my boyfriend that night.
One thing that has always been particularly weird about my dreams is that if I’m ever running from something I can only run slowly unless I run backwards and face the thing I am running away from and then I can run much faster. I’m sure a psychologist would have an absolute field day analysing that dream!
A lot of people have very similar dreams including them being naked in public, being chased and showing up late to something. The dream I used to get that is quite common is one where my teeth were falling out. This particular dream has been given lots of different meanings including having insecurities about a personal loss and even a need to look after yourself more. I’m always intrigued by the meaning of dreams and their interpretations.
I’d love to hear about some of your most recent dreams and if you’ve ever had any dreams similar to mine before so let me know in the comments.
