Some People Dream: Some People Don't: What About You?

This time I’m talking about REAL dreams, that a person has when they are asleep. I’m not talking about “Following Your Dreams” to become a successful performer or business owner or something like that? I know that it’s been said that everyone dreams, but not everyone remembers dreaming. I have some very VIVID dreams sometimes and wake up in a panic. Dreaming is supposedly a person’s subconscious mind working things out, they say. I’m not sure about that, but I know that I often have the same types of dreams. Sometimes, I’m in a building with lots of floors and doors and stairways and I’m trying to find my way out of the building, but can’t. Sometimes, I’m flying. Hah! I’m mean REALLY flying, not in an airplane. Flying over mountains and looking down at the Earth. Sometimes I dream about spiders, which I HATE with a passion. What kind of crazy dreams do you have? Or do you dream at all?

When I have very vivid dreams that mean something I can remember every graphic detail and I have them written down. Then I have had dreams where I dream and it's like watching a movie and if I wake up and then go back to sleep I get the second part of the movie. I have dreams that don't mean anything just some silliness and I forget about them quickly but scary dreams take a long time to leave me.

I have repeating dreams. One dream that repeats is the one in which I forgot that I had signed up for a college class, learn at the end of the semester that I did sign up for the class, and I have to take the final exam not knowing a darn thing. I also dream frequently of having to crawl across a high suspension bridge and due to my fear of heights, I am petrified. That bridge was in the town in which I was born, and as a kid, it scared the daylights out of me when my dad drove across that thing.

Once I dreamed I was in the back seat of the car with my younger brother. My Dad was driving and my mother was in the front seat. And we were in a tornado spinning around and around. I woke up before we crashed into anything.

@JudyEv Yes, some of my dreams are really scary and when I wake up, I say to myself. "Wow! I'm glad that was only a dream!." Sometimes I'm hiding from a dangerous situation and can't seem to get away from the danger. I'm always glad when I wake up and know that I was just dreaming.
My last vivid dream was to return to my boarding house (which I didn't care for) when I was in my teen. They were all so welcoming me back and I woke up, thinking, 'what? Back to that place again? I thought I had managed to get out of that jail ages ago.'

@IreneVincent Dreaming is the subconscious mind working on your life's problems and solutions. Actually, they can be interpreted to a degree. It is not a spiritual interpretation, but rather a psychological one.
