What are the recurring themes/elements in your dreams?

>places I've been to, but mixed in a way that create new places, so I can't recognize them

>flying (rare)
>time travel (e.g. have a limited amount of time to restore things)
>being late

My only repeating theme is my mother yelling at me. I don't know why, but every few dreams my mother appears randomly and starts critiquing what I'm doing. I feel like there's some Freudian bent to this because all her dream rants sound like her irl.


>being late (especially for things like trains, buses and vehicles that come only once)
>being naked for absolutely no reason
>a white cat called Chrona
>schools, classrooms and tests (being unprepared to take them)
>places that do not exist and heavy modifications of existing places
>open spaces (like cities, forests, hills) that I can freely explore
>running from something/someone dangerous and being pursued by them in those places
>extremely large spaces like buildings, skyscrapers and underground complexes with relatively large rooms
>suicide, especially by jumping off of high places
>stopping time (related to the white cat)
>being unable to return to a place I was familiar with earlier in the dream, and sometimes being frustrated by that


People acting the like the opposite of their IRL selves. Like my loved ones being completely evil. Even I act differently.


for years I had reoccuring nightmares about being robbed at knifepoint after a traumatising experience with that irl. These days I often have dreams about just walking around urban places which are in the dream logic familiar to me, but don't actually reasemble any real places I've been to. For the amount of time I spend on my computer, it's surprising how little it shows up in my dreams.

What are some recurring things that appear every now and then in your dreams? Could be an event, a location, an object…

A recurring dream i used to have is being at a store buying a my little pony toy (i was obsessed with the show but couldn't tell anyone). Funnily enough i stopped having this dream after ordering a mlp toy online


A college friend of mine has betrayed me and then made up for it right after by saving me at least twice in my dreams.
Apparently I have invaded the dreams of this same guy just to tell him to wake up two or three times.

Intitle. For those who dreamed something notable but don't want to write the whole thing out, unless maybe someone really cares about it.

Had a dream where I was browsing the internet
and reading the comment section under a
post. Found an interesting comment and
saved it. My subconscious was trying to tell
me something lol. I forgot what the
comment was.


Someone threw me a surprise party. We were celebrating although I don't know what. It was huge. Everyone at the party ignored me.


Sorry your subconscious is full of rude assholes. Next time you should try to show them who is boss!

I dreamed that I had a bb gun shootout with my frens against the nonfrens.

sounds awesome anon


I dreamed similar one with yours. I have two guns, a shotgun and a pistol.
I remember that shotgun was M1014, and the pistol was G17. But you know, I don't have any gun irl. Also I haven't fired it too except an experience of a military service.

Anyway, I shoted some people with my gun. In the situation of dream, I don't know most of them who I shot. But when I wake up, I realize most faces are I know. I guess most dream are made up with experience and some imagines which were organized with reallife things. That's why most faces are I know.

Also, I fired my gun to them. That was BB guns. Why? I said before, I didn't shot my guns to others except when I play games irl with BB guns.
So they weren't dead. Just. Just I remember they were really suffered in pain.

Since I shot my people, other people came to ours and they worried about people who get shot. And dream were ended.

Hi anons, I've been having this strange dream where I'm lying on the sand and I wake up in front of a house similar to the one in the photo.

It has two paths, one to the right that leads to a mystical jungle full of Hawaiian totems, aztec pyramids and moais.

And the path from the left that leads me to a village of shanties and small houses with boats.

I think the dream has no particular meaning but it feels like a liminal space, the thing is that I dream with this same place at least 3 times a week since last 5 months.

>It has a meaning?

>Should I be worried?
>What are your thoughts about it?

It's a calm and comfortable experience but also makes me feel confused


You need some vacations


According to Jung, the dream house represents your psyche.
West and East (Right and Left) are materialism vs. spiritual transcendence.

You may feel that mundane life is bogging you down and feel the need to reconnect with the gentle solitude of nature. The fact that you dream of this ocean multiple times a week tells me that you have a desperate subconscious need to return to the womb - you value cozy respite more than most because of the toll active participation in society takes on your energy.

The fork in the road signifies that you balance on the fine line between being someone who fits into society and being someone who spiritually transcends mundane society. You probably spend time searching for the truth through ancient mysticism in between your 9-5 job.

How was my dream interpretation? Was I close?

>West and East (Right and Left) are materialism vs. spiritual transcendence.

It is a good interpretation, lately I have felt that my life has no direction and that I only work and live to buy things to fill something, I work a 10 hour shift and earn well but I already feel too exhausted mentally

So yes u were close but I'm not a very spiritual person


I’m sorry to hear you’ve got such a burnt out feeling. I’ve been in that drudgery and know how it feels. Sometimes if you do one, small thing differently every now and then can make a huge difference in the day.

Maybe try to do little things to break up the monotony - like doodling an unflattering pic of your boss and leaving it anonymously on their desk or practicing the art of reverse pickpocketing on your coworkers and then challenging them to a bet that you know what’s in their pocket or printing out an inspiring looking picture of billy mays and posting it in a very conspicuous place

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.

Just had a super freaky nightmare bros.

A group of hackers at my school decided that they were going to start fucking with me. For some reason in my dream Telegram and Twitter were basically the same app. But they like sent me a follow/friend request and thats when something felt wrong. I could hear them typing in shit and taking control of my screens and looking through all my stuff.

My twitter is safe but my tele is not. I ERP as a furry character sometimes and I have a lot of weird kinks, but these hackers were in my telegram account and laughing at everything. Nowhere in the dream did it confirm that they were sending it to my friends family and school mates but I knew that they were.

While they were doing this I hoped I still had time so I dug through the web app to try to find a place to report that I was being hacked and the page that it took me to was a fucking FBI pdf form you had to fill out that was a dozen pages long and it was time sensitive so I gave up and tried to find another way to get them out of the app.

Near the end of the dream I was just freaking out about how my reputation was ruined and everyone was gonna know about all my crazy shit and I'm never gonna have another chance with my ex because she'll know and all this stuff. Basically felt like my life was over.

I woke up and my heart was pounding. I like never have nightmares…


everytime i talk about this i get embarrassed and take it down. tw for csa/rape
alright, i had some sexual things done to me as a kid by another kid, a family member, who didnt really know what they were doing and learnt it from someone else. it's really fucked me up in the years past, but im doing a lot better now. still, i keep having dreams where family members, even those who have never done anything of the sort to ANYBODY (much less me) try to rape me, mainly my dad. they're so distressing and i wake up feeling sick. its hard to face him afterwards.
on a slightly lighter note, i have those weird teeth falling out dreams and man, the feeling of chewing with just gums is gross, even just in a dream. i hope i never feel it in real life. now i gotta grind my teeth just to remind myself they're there. people say that means your life feels out of control, but i just..have them randomly? even when i feel okay? i watch a lot of horror so it probably has to do with that.


Dream 1: Dream took place in a small beachside town with a friend of mine who had kidnapped and was torturing a small dog (one of those things you just know in dreams). Some sort of festival with sparse groups of people just standing in a field with dry, trampled summer grass. My friend starts to sing, forcibly mingling his voice with a group of festival NPCs. I can see the ocean down below. Looks like an upside down greenish glass bowl. It's rounded at the edges. it looked kinda like the logo of some corporate artstyle bubble big tech company. the song started to become darker. I looked at the sky and it was night. the sky looked expansive and at first I thought there were no stars, but I could see little ones lurking under the night. they looked like little holes or pockmarks and they terrified me. the sky flashed a kinda orange-pink several times, which informed me there was going to be a tsunami. the sky was black again and the sea started to move like a snake. this was where I woke up.

Dream 2: a fever dream I had when I was 9 with a "towel grabbing contest." still remember this because it was the most terrifying dream I'd ever happened. what happened is I grabbed too much of the red towel. woke up screaming and vomiting.

Dream 3: Vast field of wheat that stretched forever in 3 directions. 4th direction has a kinda fairytale twisted mess of a forest set up on a hill. Low conifers mostly with enough mangled branches to make one big tree mat. Almost oppressively blue sky. I'm half aware I'm dreaming and I feel like I'm trapped in an old movie with a kinda technicolor system- I'd just seen wizard of oz with my little cousin the night before. little cabin appeared to me, at first far away. broken windows, cobwebs, peeling paint. something was deeply wrong in the house.there was a kinda primordial fear attached to it. I had no choice but to walk towards it, fear increasing every step I took. when I reached it, I looked inside, felt a sort of intense vertigo fear, woke up.


I was on a sidewalk, going home, and I was carrying some coconuts.

There was a group of 5 girls who were going in the same direction and were laughing at me. I changed my route to avoid them but they came after me. I asked one of them "do I know you?" and they just kept talking like we have known each other forever.

I took one coconut and threw it at her, it pushed into traffic and she was run over by a car. No one reacted, I just heard whispers from the other girls. I threw another coconut at another girl, same result. They started to walk faster, and I think they were going to the police.

I went to the train station and took the first train lol.

Is it normal to dream almost every single night? I've never remebered dreams so often than these past weeks. Weirdest part is that I sometimes dream about the same places.


i'm told everyone dreams every single night unless their sleep is interupted. remembering dreams is a skill that can be trained.


I usually remember at least some part of my dreams almost every night ever since I was a kid, I think it depends on the person.

Intense emotions (especially stress) can cause repetitive and intense dreams. Are the same places you keep visiting something from real life?
