I am an adult now, quite often I dreamed my classmates in the elementary years and I don't have any idea what significance does it gives to me. It just not once or twice but many times now, I am quite bothered why does it keeps on repeating same dreams. Could you share me your point of view and its significance in me ? Do you have the same experience like mine ? Who and what do you dream often ? What do you think does it mean and significant to you ? Hope you share , happy mylotting !

I dream about my best friend from middle school a lot. His mom sent him to live with his dad in our freshman year of high school, and I never saw him or heard from him since then. Every dream I have he comes back and we talk about old times. I dream about a lot of people that I didn't like in high school too. I had a dream that I went back to high school and I was walking through the cafeteria and every person I had a problem with was there. And one of them said something to me and I beat the crap out of him then everyone chased me out of the building.

You mean you keep on repeating same dream? I also do have similar dreams about the past childhood experiences but no repetitions. Most of the time those dreams do not really have significance. Sometimes when I sleep thinking of some past events, I'd dream of them but most have no significance in real life. But there was one dream of mine which clearly showed my brother having problems in his work abroad and it turned out that he was really having problem. That was when I realized that sometimes God is using dreams to send some relevant or important messages.

Hello torchablazed! When I was in college and highschool, I often dreamed about my school and classmates in Grade school. I don't know what's the meaning of it because it became repetitive. But then after I graduated, I stopped dreaming about it.

wow the dream repeated ? well, I can't figure out either why those classmates we have keep flashing on our subconsciousness... maybe we just desperately misses their company.

I guess you are right there. I do enjoy my elementary days although I have some bad memories there too.

I think you probably miss their presence or something. Im not sure. Do you dream of them as a kid like how they were in elementary or do you see them as they are now? Well I think if you dream of them as how they were in elementary I think you're probably trying to remember a memory that includes them or something like that. I do dream of old places and classmates. I am how I am today and the people are how they are at present but the place would be somewhere in my childhood which might not be existing anymore. I dont know what they mean. Perhaps I want to go back to the good times of childhood. Sometimes its good, sometimes I dont wanna remember but whether bad or good I know there must be a reason why I dreamt of them. Only thing is I dont know why.

I did that not too long ago. I had a dream about a classmate that i wasn't even that good friends with. I remember in the dream we were very close. In reality though i barely hung out with this person much at all. It's weird how you will think or dream of things. I hadn't thought of that person in as long as i can remember either. Right after having that dream i heard this person is in the army now & is in or had been in Germany or somewhere. Strange.

I find it weird also, but definitely these kind of dreams miss us with good ol' pals. Thanks for your thoughts.

Yes, true. Maybe it's our way of keeping ourselves young LOL. I still feel like i'm not any older than i was when i was in high school. Then i look @ my son & realize, geez, i'm 27 lol.

I dream of my old classmates as well. The other day I had a dream I was in 1st grade again with all of my childhood peers, only very oddly we were all adults, but in my dream it somehow made sense. I have no idea what the dream means. I think perhaps it is a longing for the past. I also dream about my father who passed away. I think that I just realize how fast life is passing me by and my subconscious tries to hold on to the past, since my conscious mind, busy with the here and now, is incapable of this feat.

That was odd, I should say, I think you have a point there, maybe there is somewhere in our minds that wishes us to hold on to the past... good old memories.

Thanks for your suggestion, I would be checking out if we have a reunion this year or maybe the next year. Most of them went abroad though, I hope we can manage to have a gathering one of these days.

Dreams does really affects us somewhere, we are moved by the fact of old buddies we used to hang out in school, I don't have any idea either with the exam meaning in your dreams as you see I never figure it much with mine. Thanks for your response !

I have no such experience. I guess the one you dreamed of impressed you deeply. Is he /she you missed? Or you have regrets to her or him?You may ask a psychiastrist for suggestion.

Whoa thats terrible ! I don't consider my dreams as a nightmare although it keeps coming back , but its more of hang out thingie with good old school days you know... its actually a good piece of dream I have. I think you don't have to eat much before going to bed inorder not to dream those things you have. Glad to know your experience as well.

Hey torch! I have had the same experience many times and I can't explain it either! I hated my days in school and the people that I was in school with. I have no idea why I would still be dreaming about them so many years later. It is really strange. It is 45 years since I have been out of Elementary School so I really have no clue why these people would still be popping into my head or subconcious! I have never seen these people again so I really don't know what the significance the dreams have. Most of them weren't even in the next grades with me. After Elementary School they disappeared and were never to be seen by me again! So it still remains a mystery!

Its nice to know that you are experiencing the same thing to me too.. yeah that puzzled me somehow why they keep on crossing in my dreams, yet, I never thought much on them during the day, being occupied with a left and right task ! whew. Totally a mystery it is opal !!!

I dream often about my work life - about my colleagues, my work place and making plans for development. My dreams are mostly positive inspiring me to keep on going. But there are certain phases when I dreamed about my family members who had passed away long before. Personalities include my father, my grandmother, and even my uncles. And above all, I can recall few of my dreams as if I have actually seen them in a theater. Strange things happen in this world.

When I was in college taking education classes, knowing I would teach elementary school, I thought a lot about my own education at that age. As a result I used to dream about it a lot and some of my old classmates. Most of my dreams were centered around teaching techniques. I never thought much about it because it seemed obvious to me why I was having those dreams. I would not even begin to try and help you understand your dreams, as I am no expect.

Its alright makingpots, I bet your still good with the teaching techniques eh ? and if you would take another exam would that mean you would pass the test over and over again ? Wow that's just amazing ! Good for you !!!

There is a old saying here that when you dream in the night,the opposite stuff will take place on you in coming days.For example,you dream money and you will lose your money in the next day.It's weird and I don't believe it so much.Having dreams are so normal that they do not must mean something actually.I have the dream if very tired and can't help doing that.Take it easy and have a good day!

Hi, torchablazed. I'm not an expert but I have studied dreams and even written a dream dictionary. I'd say that you dreaming about classmates from elementary school signifies that you'd like to be back at that stage in your life again. Maybe you aren't very happy the way your life is going right now and remember your early school years as being a happy time. Of course, there are many other factors to be considered. Do you dream about being in school with them or just your old classmates in another setting? Are these classmates bullies or friends? If the dreams are all good, then I'd say it's a good bet that there is something going on in your life now that you aren't happy with. Maybe it's the direction your life has taken or that things just haven't gone the way you had wished. Am I close? Personally, I don't usually dream about any one thing a lot. My dreams are often of many different things and are usually very pleasant.

The rules here in mylot says don't say thank you to someone here , but with your thoughts on me my friend YOU ARE THE BEST !!!! THANK YOU !!! Yes, you're right I have some hang ups with my childhood days with peers and classmates I used to love hanging out with, I miss them terribly everytime I saw them in my dreams its like so real that I wanted to grab their hands and hug them sooo tight. The setting isnt in school but in a typical place where we used to enjoy, the park. These are pleasant dreams I considered mentalward and its good bringing memory back year. A high five on you then !!!! ALRIGHT !!!

I'm not so often, sometimes, one or two times a year, maybe Well usually people experiencing the same dream everytimes is because there are some unsettled job or task or something to do, maybe you have it with your friends?already check for it? It is sub consciousness world that alarm you to do something with that so that's why it is always repeat again n again
