|this is where I am this morning in my mind..|
I slept pretty well last night with not too many necessary side-trips. But for some reason, many times (not all) my dreams are filled with confrontations... usually with strangers. This seems so strange as my life doesn't involve many confrontations.
Maybe to get balance, I dream of these??? I certainly don't like them and they make my heart beat fast. And they're never about any one thing... just stupid stuff. This last one (last night) was about people coming onto our property to watch something (and what they were watching was ridiculous too). I was angry not so much because they were on our property, but because they blocked our view of what was going on.
When I awoke, I was thinking about this. First of all, why would I be angry with people on my property?? Why would it make me so mad? Do I have some hidden anger issues that I'm not aware of? Are dreams random? Are they trying to tell me something?
I have had dreams that clarify things for me. I've also had recurrent dreams about a strange, but mysteriously fascinating house with an enormous amounts of rooms and odd architecture. And I have noticed that on occasion my dreams have been influenced by something I either read or saw on TV.
This might be the case here. I have been reading a mystery (in bed) involving a detective who "travels" through lucid dreams. He is constantly frustrated. (That might be the reason for last night's episode...)
Years ago I used to be able to continue a dream from one night to another... not anymore. I also have had 'dreams' in the past where I thought I was actually traveling 'out of body'.... to different places that I'd always wanted to visit. These experiences were few, but they were accompanied by an unforgettable feeling of freedom... a feeling so exhilarating that it will remain in my head forever.
And yes, I've also had the 'flying' dreams. Those are/were wonderful too. These I can rationalize by the fascination I have with watching birds (mainly seagulls and hawks) fly. They seem to float on the air with such ease.
Anyway, I digress... I didn't mean for this to be so long. But my mind slips through my fingers to the page on occasion. I really appreciate you reading my rambles.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
