I've had a recurring dream for the last few years. I would wake up back in 2004, always on the same saturday morning thinking I was late for school, rush around to get ready and my parents would be sitting in the living room looking at me like I was crazy. I would then proceed to live the rest of my life before I would wake up.
The first year it happened I had this dream every day. Now I still have the same dream but only about once a week. It's really confusing because it's basically "groundhog day" for my life. I've played out scenarios where I lived an entirely different life to what I have now, married a different woman, had different kids, had no kids and stayed single, went into the military, got my dream job, had different hobbies, ect.
I have no clue what it means but it always ends with my death, usually in my mid-fifties, and I wake up and have to spend the first few minutes awake to remember where the hell I am. The dreams have been vivid enough that a few times I didn't recognize my kids for a good half hour after I woke up.
I rarely remember my dreams. But when they do, they are generally not much worth considering. Though the mixing and mashing of everything in my brain (from the present to the distant past) sometimes spits out interesting things.
One in particular, was REALLY out there.
In this dream, Rihanna's Unfaithful was playing in the background as a figure in a white dress (Rihanna?) was dancing around an orange tub of Parkay margerine.
I woke up, and was COMPLETLY taken aback. The product placement has some bearing in reality (I work at a grocery store), but the rest was out there. The bigest oddity being that at that time (2013), it had been YEARS since I had heard that song. In fact, the last I probley heard it was after it fell out of the airwaves after it's release. And not at all since then, being that I didn't listen to the radio OR pop music.
As a pilot I have a reoccuring dream that I have been told other pilots have... I'm surrounded by powerlines desperately trying to climb through them. Another has me in IFR conditions knowing I am in the clouds surrounded by tall guyed towers.
When I had wet dreams it usually involved being given an enema! Goes back to my childhood when mom believed enemas cured everything from hangnail to bubonic plague.
We have at least a dozen posts on dreams you can research. I have serial dreams - people and places that reappear and the plot continues in another one. I have nighmares about the Holocaust since learning of it in my teens. I have dreams when I am flying, driving in the back seat of a car, or flying an airplane. Sometimes Iam in the air flying. I also dream about black clouds warning of tornadoes-possibly from being a fan of the Wizard of Oz-that I have to get everyone around me lying flat on the ground. I've been remembering them more now than I did in the past.
