LOST IN SPACE AND GIANT ANIMALS

Again, I must remind my dear readers that this blog isn't dead. I haven't been sleeping too well lately, and so I haven't been dreaming a lot as well. I miss that, actually. My dreams are so amusing.

Anyway, I recently had two weird dreams. In the first one, I was in a giant spaceship lost in another planet all covered with trees. The spaceship was broken and we all were going to die in a few hours. That's another recurrent element in my dreams about the outer space: we use to get trapped somewhere, knowing that we will die soon. I wish I knew what that means. In this case, though, we found out that the mountain nearby the spaceship was actually ALIVE. It had eyes. Then it turned into some kind of human-like creature, and it wanted to help us find some energy source to repair the broken ship. I woke up after that. (Dang!)

In the second dream, I was walking by an old neighborhood. The street was dark because of the thick trees. I had my cat in my arms, and as I walked, I noticed that many of those old trees had animal faces on them. Then I found myself in an avenue with less trees, and after some more walking I saw two giant animals: an elk and a bear (when I mean giant, I mean bigger than normal, and since those animals are already big in their normal sizes, imagine how huge they were). Both of them looked quite frightening, and they started to fight. I ran a way from them to avoid being harmed, and my stupid cat decided to escape from me right there. Then the bear turned into an African water buffalo (animals tend to do that in my dreams). I didn't mind waking up after that, I had had enough animals for one night.

  1. August 2012? And you say that the bog isn't dead? What has happened? I update my dream bog every day since 2011. Is there a reason you have stopped?

    1. The blog isn't dead. My dream machine seems to be out of service. Yes, it's been a long time now :-P I've only been dreaming nonsense, nothing worth mentioning here. Oh, well...

      I'll take a look at your blog. Have a nice day! :-)

  2. I have recently read a couple of your other blog posts and noticed you have had a lot of strange dreams. They vary a lot from what they tend to be about—sometimes they have been about chocolate ball monsters, dragons, Spiderman, etcetera, and you share them with the blogosphere without shame. I really appreciate that honesty about your blog. I feel that dreams are the gateway into the ideas and imagination that people don’t allow themselves to tap into until they fall asleep and let everything go. All of the subconscious fears, ambitions, doubts, joys that a person has manifest themselves through the dream world, the only way it can get out. People learn a lot about their inner feelings through dreams, if they remember them, of course. I have heard a couple times in my life that the ordinary person can have about three dreams per night, but most times do not remember any of them. This is such a fascinating thing to think of--I wish I remembered all of my dreams.

    Before you delete this comment or think of me as some odd psychologist, know that I have a point. Dreams are the best form of inspiration, I find. The mind can go anywhere, be any place, any time. As a writer, I’m always looking for inspiration for what to write. I find some of my better ideas being drawn from the things that I dream about—some untapped potential I can only attain while sleeping. It’s troubling when I wake and cannot remember what I dreamed about. You may just feel your dreams are comical and bizarre, but I see a lot of creative and creepy ideas, and it inspires me. In this particular post, you talk about two dreams—one where you’re lost on a spaceship and the spaceship is alive, and the other involves you being in the woods and the trees have these animal faces. While very creepy and possibly scary (depending on what you consider ‘scary’) these are very interesting ideas to read about. It seemed to be very real-feeling to you.

    It’s hard to understand why dreams feel like reality sometimes, though. There’s a whole science behind the process, but no words can describe the feeling a person gets in a dream that’s going south and they fully believe that it is reality. Falling feels like falling, being upset feels like your heart crushing, the breakup’s real, the abnormalities are normal, the dream world is reality. While some people claim that they can control their dreams, I question that. As I mentioned earlier, dreams are a projection of our subconscious. Most times we don’t understand it, but it’s interesting to try and figure out what it means. And if that doesn’t yield any results, you could always write about it.

    1. Thank you for your comment :-) Yeah, dreams are inspiring indeed, and I've actually written some stories based on them. If some dream here inspires you in any way, feel free to write whatever comes to your mind!

      BTW, I've been able to control my dreams some times (when I figure out that I'm dreaming). It's not that rare.
