Often fleeing, trying to escape from someone or from somewhere. It is not scary, just exciting smile.

It used to be a lot of flying around and/or being chased by people (as in exciting, not necessarily nightmare-ish).

But lately those haven't happened as often as in the past. A lot of my dreams seem to revolve around current events in my life. Video games often feature. Or happenings from my daily life will return in some form. Actually, compared to previous years, my dreams make more sense to me than they did before.

One reason might be that my life as of late has been somewhat routine, at least as far as daily activity goes. University 4 days a week makes for regular traveling and interaction with roughly the same people. I don't have a lot of time to do other stuff, so I tend to not get too many "random" elements in my dreams.

That said, I keep having dreams about this one person I was friends with in high school. We haven't seen or spoken in over 6 years. And we were never really that close to begin with. Yet I've written down at least 6 or 7 dreams where he was a "main character."

But I digress.



Current LD goal(s): To expand the world of Silverwind City in my lucid dreams!

One of the most common themes for me is living in my parents' apartment (where I lived as a child and a teenager) even though being grown up.
Another very common one is being lost somewhere, not being able to find my way, or having parked my car somewhere and not being able to find it when I come back.
Also school and school related things are very common for me (I am a teacher in my waking life).

My themes tend to change over time. For a while, it was common for my dreams to involve videogame characters of some sort. After that, I had a really frustrating theme: I'd have a false awakening, jot down a detailed account of my dream in my DJ, then wake up with no memory of the dream I'd just had. Fortunately, that's becoming less common.

The only prevailing theme, from what I can recollect, is my house. Quite a few of my dreams either took place at my house, or slowly morphed into my house as the dream went on. If this does not occur, my dreams are extremely random, and that's how I like 'em.

Right now, my dream theme seems to be video games: either being inside them (although not manipulated by a player somewhere else; I always have control of my own actions within the parameters of the game) or playing them, except that I don't notice the screen--it's like I'm floating in the game world.

When I started working on dream recall, I thought that a lot of my dreams involved an obstacle-filled journey from Point A to Point B. However, as I'm getting to the point of remembering a dream or two every night, I'm discovering that those dreams seem to be pretty uncommon.

My dreams are usually related to me dying/someone being separated from a group of people, usually out of an act of heroism to save others*Fate spinning extremely fast - being scared/school.

The death in my dreams mostly occur to me in violent ways, the weapon I die by is usually a knife. I have gotten my throat slit, stomach stabbed, backstabbed, strangled and drowned.

The separation is most likely connected to the fact that sacrificing oneself for the sake of others is a very noble and heroic deed. I find the theme to be extremely touching.

The spinning, well, those dreams have accompanied me since childhood, I simply spin, usually by holding onto a vertical pipe that spins or something, feeling the g-forces. These dreams cause me to wake up after a while.

I think school haunts most of the people, I can see myself doing a test or an exam with no luck whatsoever. They are always very distressing, excluding during the holidays, because of the relief when you wake up.

My most common themes are zombies and "taking one for the team". Epic medieval dragon warfare also seems to creep up and find it's place in my SC often, too.

SOO many times I've been shot, stabbed, punched, kicked, etc in the efforts of saving or protecting others. It's never fatal, just painful.

As for zombies, my friends have learned. Usually it goes something like this:
Me: "Hey, I had a weird dream last night..."
Friends: "Oooh I love zombie dreams!"
Me: eek2


I think high school is a very common dream theme for any stressor. My mom has even made comments that when she's behind on her work or is afraid of being late for something, she'll have dreams about being in high school again and missing the bus, or dreading a final exam, etc. I have had my share of school dreams, but I'm generally good at not letting things stress me so much. It's been a good while since I've had one, too.

Actually, my high school dreams are more light hearted. Some actually make me laugh when I wake up. eh

But I know now that I've left high school the scene that is my "high school" in my dreams has shifted to being at a different angle than what it was. notify

For some reason all my dreams are different, and they have almost nothing in common, except for the fact that I'm always in some unseen, unknown location.
