I’m lucky to remember my dreams, that’s for sure. But sometimes I’ll have a dream that was similar to another. I like to call these themes.
I have had multiple dreams in the following themes (the ones I remember, anyway): finding a bathroom, exploring a house, and driving over a cliff. Luckily, I haven’t had that last one in quite a while. But the others? Yeah, they happen more frequently.
FINDING A BATHROOM
It’s not like I’m actually looking for a bathroom. No, I found the bathroom. It’s the toilet I’m having trouble with. It’s either dirty or not working or exposed to the public. Very weird. I have no idea what it all means, either. I just know when I wake up from one of these dreams, I’m frustrated. Pretty bad when I can gross myself out, too, because some of those dreams have been pretty rank.
Hey, if you know what this theme means, then by all means, share. I’d like your opinion.
EXPLORING A HOUSE
I love these dreams. The house is always larger than it seems. Rooms and stairways appear out of no where and lead to other areas I never knew existed. Almost never ending and never scary. Just a lot of exploring. All I know is when I wake up, I wish I were still in that house because I hadn’t had a chance to explore it all.
Hmmm… Does this mean I’m nosy? Well, I guess I am. I just never follow through in real life. These dreams let me do that.
DRIVING OVER A CLIFF
I hate these dreams. Or should I say nightmares? I’m usually driving in the mountains, on a narrow two-laned road. Weather sometimes plays a part, but there always comes a time when there’s a white fence on the curve and instead of taking the curve I just plow through the fence. And yes, this is when I wake up. Don’t know why I want to drive over a cliff, or what would happen if I hit bottom. I don’t think I want to find out!
I’ve also had repeat dreams. I only realize it’s a repeat when I wake up, but I have never written it down, so it’s long gone out of my head now. But at the moment of waking, I realize I’ve dreamed it before. The next time that happens, I really need to write it down. Heck, I should just write down my dreams. Sometimes they’re quite entertaining (to me anyway).
So, have you had themes in your dreams? Have you ever had a repeat dream? Or am I just a freak?
