My dreams hit the nail on the head

I have been under a lot of stress the past week. I have had some dreams that are disturbing and upsetting. I dreamt the other night I was walking through a swamp, bog, lake whatever, I was in the water walking through it trying to get out. I was surrounded my three snakes, each trying to bite me. One was especially in need of this. It bit me three times. I was able to get out of the water. I went into a hospital asking for help. While at the counter the venom started taking effect and I felt dizzy and drunk. I fell hitting my head. Last night I was stuck on an island with a shark that wouldnt attack anyone who entered the water except me. I would start to enter and this huge shark would show itself. I was abandoned by the people whom I thought cared about me. Another I was attacked by an evil spirit who had brought zombies on the earth. Each symbol and emotion talks about stress, distrust and being hurt. My subconcious is working over time.

Oh My God ! Those are some really scary and awful dreams. But you don't need to worry and get tensed. Dreams aren't real, right! So you should actually relax yourself and don't get stressed. Actually, what we do throughout the day or think about or watch, gives us all sorts of dreams. You might have been thinking about such scary things lately, or watching horror movies. That is why maybe you are getting such nightmares. You should spend time relaxing, listening to music that can make you feel relaxed and happy. And how much ever possible, you should stay away from too much stress. I know and I really hope that you stop getting such kind of dreams. Have a nice day! :)

I have had people mention it goes with what I watch, but my dreams become more like this when Im more stressed. I know dreams arent real in the sense that no there wasnt a shark after me, but I do believe they have a hidden meaning. Sharks are actually a huge fear of mine. I wont swim in the ocean, I cant go in a pool myself, I dont even really like baths. Being surrounded my water is an uncomfortable situation for me, unless Im in a pool with other people. I havent watched anything or read anything to bring these scenerios around. I didnt even put in other details from the dreams, not to mention the one I had last night. I definatly need to relax more. Something I plan on working on today.

That's really good that you are planning to relax and divert your mind from those creepy dreams. But you shouldn't actually go deep into thinking that those dreams have a hidden meaning or something. Might be you are right, it happens with few people but not all. If you think that those dreams do really have a meaning or anything as such, then try thinking positively that those dreams are trying to help you or warn you, or might be a good sign even. But the best thing for you to do is just RELAX and CALM DOWN. Everything will be fine ! :)

They say your dreams are a reflection about what's going on in your life I don't usually remember my dreams so I don't really know but I definitely would say your subconscious is working overtime! Wow' it sounds like it's trying to tell you "BEWARE"

Yes, I think my mind is telling me something and working on my stresses. The more stressed I am the more vivid my dreams are. I know three stresses,the rest are just everyday things, but the three major ones are the ones effecting me the most. Its time for some relaxation.

You recall your dreams so accurately! I don’t always remember mine and when I do it is never absolutely clear. It does sound as though the stress in your waking life may be affecting your dreams that’s for sure. It appears you are slowly trying to get somewhere but face many obstacles, one of them being your own fear…

My dreams become more vivid the more stressed I am. I do remember my dreams practically everyday. I feel like I have so many things to overcome it just adds so much stress and fear in my life. Im hoping I can get this all figured out.

Wow, your dreams are so vivid and you tell them very well. It does seem like you are very bothered by the stresses in your awaken life. But according to my book on dreams, it says that snakes symbolize rebirth and you're bursting with creative energy & wisdom. It also says that water/ocean (your case, lake), it always represents strong emotional energy. Shark: memory/desire you're afraid to consciously acknowledge.

My dreams have always been vivid. I can recall certain dreams from years past. Just depends on how much they effect me. I didnt even give all the details in the dreams, just the symboles that stuck out the most. I do have a lot of things I want to accomplish. Also hidden fears and a ton of stress. Im working on cutting the stress out. I think dreams have things to tell us. Not all the time, but when they get really vivid like they have been I feel my mind is working on something.
