I had a dream last night it was pretty spooky.

It started with me waking up and doing the normal things that I would do in a day like go to school, eat, whatever. But during what seems like normal interactions people would do stranger and more odd things that I could not understand. After a while, I started to feel like I was in the twilight zone. (If you have seen WandaVision you might know what I am talking about) When I actually woke up everything was normal but I was still a bit shaken.

What does this all mean? Is this normal?

A.K.A: Share your blogpost about a nightmare you've had.

Lemme star by talking about mine, which for some reason, always seem to be disjointed for some reason. Had these yesterday.

First nightmare was me having a conversation to this sort of cockroach with human, slanted eyes with a mouth (kind of similar to David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch), about dissecting a human corpse, which was on a tiny table and was only a torso with a couple of organs with it's head and one arm cut off. As i was doing the operation, the cockroach thing kept talking to me about some non-sense i forgot, while blood kept spurting on my hands inside the human corpse's carcass.

Second one was me starting at the bottom of a sterile, white staircase (which i suppose was a hospital?), which had a backdoor of some sort. When i opened it, there was a large city road that had two groups of crowded people in different sides, arguing about some religion thing; one dude that was from the left side of the street, which was somebody i personally knew, started to fight with the other group which was on the right. Hugged him in an attempt to restrain him from getting his shit fucked by the mob of angry people, and pulled him inside the (what i suppose is) hospital's backdoor and locked it. He was lying unconscious on the floor, as i hopelessly tried to wake him up.

I had a dream I was an heir to some source code. I (in the dream) never really thought about money before, and I especially never thought about computers, so I was confused about both the idea of inheritance and property, and about what source code is. My father explained it to me: so it turns out that this whole (dream) world runs on close-source software. As my father droned on about responsibility and not abusing it, the only thought that stuck in my head was that if I studied it well, that kid, that childhood bully of mine, would really get what was coming to him.

When I woke up, as I was thinking through my dreams of the night, when I started recalling this one, I really broke out in a cold sweat, that I could be so vapid. And that the world could be set up to allow something so cruel to happen.


I had a dream
Of a wall
That was 21 storeys tall


>While ash falls like snow
Reminds me a lot of angusnicneven.com
You can find a lot of sections the question "Is it ash or is it snow?" or something related to that theme, though I don't remember which ones.

I regularly (about twice a week) dream about me laying in my bed until it is suddenly swarmed by insects. It's always a different species. It's been spiders, cockroaches, fast-moving worms, etc.


This dream takes place in high school. Cringe, I know, but it's not what you think.

There is plenty of "paranormal" stuff going on, and you have to figure it out. I come early so I have time to hang out in the hallway a little. I see a lot of creepy stuff, possessed people, and you have to throw certain objects at them and they calm down.

Anyway, I go into the classroom a few minutes before the class starts. Every day we learn some weird thing. Today there are sewing machines on every desk and my mind immediately goes to needles. I know that the machines will go out of control and I will be attacked by the needles. In the dream, I remember older dreams with this pattern but different objects. In reality, I have never had dreams like that.

Naturally, I'm scared so I skip class. On my way out, some people warn me about a certain creature that wants to "assimilate" me and kill me. They are disguised as people, no difference. A few people in the school have one of these chasing them. The creatures make people think that they are their "shadow" and they have to accepted but they are actually foreign and want to possess you (for lack of a better word).

So I ask around the school, and find out that they can be killed if they use a poisoned lipstick. It's not harmful for people, just for the "creatures". The girls who make these lipsticks offered me one.

I go home. On the way home, I see this girl, she was dressed somewhat like a magical girl. There is nobody else on the street. She is a few meters behind me, but keeps getting closer. We make small talk, I pull out the poisoned lipstick and I use it. I ask her if she wants to try it, she said yes. She applies the lipstick. In a few seconds she disappears. Mission accomplished lol.

When I'm close to home it's already midnight. I am tired and pass out on the street.

Only knowing the truest form of love and intimacy inside my dreams makes waking a constant heartbreaking experience.

I don't love anyone except the people I find in my dreams. All too soon it ends. I've cried about it sometimes.

Anyone else relate?

I'm literally the same. Every month or two I have a dream where there's this enigmatic girl, everytime it's a different person, but they're all enigmatic, and i'm never communicating directly with them. Usually, I'm not even *in* the dream, strictly speaking. But the dreams affect me so much that I feel like shit the moment I wake up, and spend the rest of the month under its influence, so to speak, every night praying that I might see the same dream again or one that is similar….

Not even depressed or anything, but dreams feel way more real to my actual life…..

Pure, unconditional love does not and cannot exist in the physical world. Humans are incapable of expressing it. That we are able to know it in any way, even if only in dreams, is a blessing from the divine that none of us deserve. It does hurts terribly to be apart from it, but I try to be thankful that it's only a temporary separation. Even when I'm stuck deep in the mire of physical reality and can't feel anything but decay, it's still there, and when I'm done with this place I will rejoin it.


I'll be right there with you friend. I can't wait to feel that unconditional, shining love that awaits us all after our vessels are abandoned.


This very much was my experience between the ages of… Probably 15-23. I can remember sitting there in bed most nights, quietly praying/wishing/focusing to experience one of those surreal encounters with that idealized, beautiful person I've never, but feel so familiar in the dream.

I noticed these dreams were most prevalent when I was most fearful of being hurt by others.


I re-read through all of His Dark Materials because of this post. Thanks for inspiring me anon.

Sometimes I’ll wake up and realize I’ve dreamt about reconciling with my ex. Not getting back together, but just talking without mental barriers between us like we once could. It gives me a moment of peace before I let her memory fade back into my mind again.
I hope we all can find some approximation of shining romantic love in this life. If that cannot be the case, I will look forward to meeting you all as brothers in the eternal love beyond our universe. Be well my friends

Recently, I keep having these dreams. Does anyone know what they mean?

It involves me doing something in my town, usually just walking around. I encounter a wild animal (lion, tiger, bear etc) and I try to run away from it. I try to run to my apartment building, but all the ways to it are blocked by even more wild animals, so I run anywhere for safety. At that point I would wake up. Last night, I woke up at 5 AM because of this dream.


You are stressed and fear the future.

Pet… Pet the animals… maybe they just want pets.

I don't really know if dreams mean anything, That dream sounds stressful though. I agree with >>990 (except the whole fear the future).
Anything on your mind?

You're right. I made this thread a few weeks ago when I had lots of schoolwork and barely had free time.

Was there any childhood dreams that you made with friends or perhaps on your own that you still have? Also are there any of these childhood dreams or rather goals that you have achived already?

Sorry for the long reply.

When I was a child I thought I was too ugly and weird for a girl to like me, so I decided when I got older I'd be bigfoot (or a slouching hermit living in a mossy wooden shack).
So I decided to start small, I'd walk on ground barefoot so it wouldn't hurt anymore.

I'm 20 now and hopeless in more areas than just my love life.
At least I can walk in the forest barefoot without worrying too much, so dream achieved?


Growing up, I wanted to be living by myself in some condo in a big city. Holding down a very important job that no one else could do. I would travel around the city and have adventures like I would in a video game. I would have a fast car and a beatiful, loving girlfriend whom I would spat with every now and then. I wanted that.

I'm almost 30 now, my job as a food service worker is being cut short no thanks to the lockdowns. I've never been in a relationship with a girl at all and spent most of my leisure time on the internet or working part-time. I still live with my mother and I drive a beat-up minivan for work and groceries. Making me think about it. I get sad that I could've done more with my life.

Subject says it all!

I had a strange one recently, though most of my dreams aren't at all based in common reality, this one stood out not only because it felt like I was in a situation that could happen (in non-dream standards, mind you), but I was also me at an age of I think around 12-13. It also featured my little sister, around the age of 7 or 8 (her current age).

Basically what happens is that our mother who I can only assume is the last surviving of her family dies, and we were left to go live with our older adoptive sister. This is all assumed, as in this is kind of the context I was feeling while in the dream, why things were happening, why I was there. Our older adoptive sister was an anthropomorphic possum though she didn't dress the same way I believe it was based on the main character from a webcomic called 'habits' or 'clementine' as some call it on vice because she was basically homeless. We walked around a downtown area of a medium sized city as she would drink alcohol and flip off cars that passed us by, edging us on to do so with her. I would, but my little sister wouldn't. Then she bought us slushies, poured alcohol into mine and I got drunk with her while my little sister just drank a normal slushy, after that I woke up.

I liked it, felt like I was having fun in the dream in the innocent way a kid at that age would despite the shitty situation.

If I transition and I go through with it, will I get obsessed with passing or something like some trans people do and never be happy? Or will I find what I'm looking for and be able to build on other aspects of my life?

Lately I've been using drugs to try and avoid my problems. It was something to do during quarantine to make the time pass but I'm not happy with the type of person I've become as a result. I'm lazy, selfish, and angry a lot of the time. I try to get everything else that I need to do out of the way as quickly as possible so I can get high. I spend a lot of money on drugs even though I'm trying to save up for transition-related expenses. Maybe the dream is more general than that, and the village is some nebulous idea of my goals in life and the monsters that keep sending me back to the spawn are the drugs and my constant relapsing. Maybe it's both at the same time?

The cop makes me think it's the drugs. I did actually get caught by a cop with weed once, and I got a court summons where I got a warning but no actual punishment or record. It was up to the judge's discretion, so the coin toss was completely out of my control but turned out in my favor.


Has anyone else had a strange phenomenon of dreams lately that aren't really considered dreams? I've been not really dreaming but what's happening is just seeing a grainy scratched blackness with slight bits of glitchy white lines and blocks appearing. I've had this happen for a week straight now.

Try not to hate me, though most people do regardless.

I have a lot of dreams where I transform into an animal, demon, or have animal bits grafted onto my body. I feel powerful/happy/satisfied post-transformation in these dreams, but then I wake up and I feel disappointed that it wasn't real, and feel shame that I felt happy in the dream (and/or woke up with a boner). One dream in particular had me wake up in a butchery, a machine started to saw off my lower body and I woke up, I got out of bed but my legs felt strange so I went to the bathroom and was overjoyed to see that I had legs like that of a pig (pic related), I woke up again and was crushed to discover that I still had normal human legs since that dream felt very real to me.

I don't know what's wrong with me. I haven't told a soul about these feelings because I'm afraid that people will hate me more. What should I do about these feelings? Does anyone else have them?


Oh yeah…
The other day i dreamed about the Queen Elizabeth dying.
Everything was really cryptic though.
At first i was looking at some kind of mirror but only in appearance it was like some kind of portal it felt like that. In it was a portrait, like a painting of an old woman's corpse late dead enough to smell and sense the rottenness.
Then when i looked inside there was an sculpture of a lying knight on an sarcophagus, too dark to see, like stone made or some rough metal, it had his hands on his belly and was holding a sword.
The corpse of the Queen was next to this sarcophagus, sitting in a wheelchair the sculptured knight's sword was stabbing the Queen on her chest.

There was a shadow next to her, like taking care of her body, and more shadows around them like waiting and specting.

From the first sight it felt like the shadows plotted against her in the first place. Overall was really weird

I dreamt that I was in a dining hall. There was a lot of people preparing food and decorations inside it. When I walked in and saw who they were, it turns out they were my friends. Old friends and some new friends I've made. I was so happy to see them doing well. Some of them reacted to me very happily, others not so much. Deep down, I do miss them and I miss all the fun times I've had with them. At the same time, I felt like I was not wanted in this party at all. It felt like they were preparing for someone else. Or rather it was for themselves. I wasn't very sure in that moment. So I said my farewells to everyone and left the hall. When I was outside of the dining hall, a flood came and swept the entire building away. When I tried to go and find the building itself, all there was left was debris, blood, and stacks of broken furniture and spoiled food. I was very shocked. When I realized what was happening, I ended up walking away from it. All of it. I woke up and started writing it down on a word doc. It was so vivid and real to me. It was so heart-breaking.

I don't know if I had made the right choice cutting myself off from fake friends and social media. I was very unhappy at the time. When I did so, I was so relieved that I could live a new life. But with the lockdowns, I'm not so sure anymore. At times I wish I hadn't deleted everything. Deep down, I still miss them.
