To sleep, perchance to NOT dream...

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

Dreaming strange dreams again and not sleeping.
Friday and Saturday I slept like the dead. I go to bed between 8:30 and 9:30. Sunday night I woke with a start thinking someone had called me. 1:30am. Tossed, turned got up and computed. Went back to bed at 4am to wake at 5:30. I was beat all day.
Last night I hit the pillow and woke at 1:45 being called again. The last time this happened my vivid dream pretty much translated into I was overworked, wishing for comfort and needed a change. Here's what happened this time.

I dreamt I was sitting behind a door and was sliding the pendant made from my grandfather's tie pin along a necklace (lost 30 years ago in a parking lot). It's a habit I do I'm thinking. Dad was calling through the door that I had to go. Yep, I woke up.

I hit the dream website again as I was intrigued the last time this happened. I looked up grandfather, lost, jewelry, doors and father.

To see broken (I'll consider lost) jewelry signifies disappointments in achieving my goals and attaining my highest desires. It is also symbolic of whatever qualities I hold precious in life. It may also be a signal for me to clean out and reorganize my life. Perhaps I am overwhelmed and distracted with the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. The closed door signifies opportunities that are denied and not available to me or that I have missed out on. Something or someone is blocking my progress. The men long-gone in my life are my wisdom and protection.

Gosh darn it. This dream stuff is pretty interesting!

    Very active dream life here (in color & sometimes as observer within the dream). My favorite site to assist in interpretations is www dot dreammoods dot com/

    My dreams are usually pretty strange. I prefer the ones about sex though. I don't like dull dreams related to working. I work way too much already and prefer to dream about more exciting stuff. LOL.

    Amazing how our stressors come back to us via our dreams. I have a particular work-related one that replays over and over in different settings. It is so obvious; no symbols to interpret. I just can't figure out why it replays now that I'm retired! A couple of others, student teaching and showing horses in my "sleep", I remember from way back when...

    Very interesting indeed . . . and powerful. I've written down compelling dreams and read Freud on interpretation of dreams but never been to a website. Dreams are "messages from the unconscious" and you've made it conscious . . .

    Fascinating! I started keeping a dream journal a few years back, and when I wake up and remember a vivid dream I write it down... but have never gone to an interpretation site. One of these days...

    Meantime, you've got a thing or two to ponder about the wise men in your life and the dream message.

    I have never looked up my dreams. Of course, most of the time I don't remember them past waking up, and have not had the experience of recurring dreams to my knowledge.
