Déjà Rêvé the Yellow Flowers

Image
I remember a while back having a dream that was what the French call  Déjà Rêvé , “Already dreamed.” I dreamt I was walking through the back yard of a woman's house. She appeared to be a sorceress of some kind. She was youthful with flowing long brown hair and dressed in a summer dress. I was lucid in this dream, but I was not concerned about controlling my dreams this time. I was curious to see where this dream would lead me. I asked the woman if she could show me real magic. She smiled at me and told me to follow her into her house. When we got inside the house, she picked up a pot of yellow flowers off a shelf and told me to follow her back outside to the back yard. We walked over to a pit of fire and she threw the pot of yellow flowers into the fire. They instantly went up in flames and disintegrated into smoke and ash. Out of the ashes emerged a skeleton in a long cloak. I was a little frightened of this cloaked skeleton and backed away. I was not exactly sure what the wo

Romance in the Department Store

I dreamt I was in a fancy department store with my sister. We decided after we were done looking around we go to dinner with my uncle and grandmother. The department store was absolutely beautiful. It had very beautifully jewelry and cooking supplies. Some of the cooking supplies were very expensive and I longed to be able to afford them. A guy came along and was talking to my sister about how he used one of the heavier kitchen items for exercising his legs. I thought it was strange and I told him that I just use ankle weights. Then I noticed that all I had around my body was a towel. I didn't know how I ended up wearing only a towel. I was quit embarrassed. Although it covered me I was afraid to go up the staircase to the jewelry section, fearing the people behind me would see my bottom. I went up the staircase quickly to the second floor and started looking around at all the beautiful jewelry. I was very excited to pick a new pair of earrings. I also noticed two young men fo

Being Chased

Image
Have you ever had dreams of being chased? Of being pursued by an unknown dream character that you feel has unfavorable intentions and you frantically run, hide, or maybe even fight off your pursuer? These dreams can be very anxiety provoking, leaving us waking up feeling exhausted and lost. The other night I had a dream that I was at the mall shopping with my sister. As we were walking along we noticed there was a man following us. We didn’t know what he wanted, but it left us feeling uneasy. I told my sister that we had better leave because the mall was closing and we needed to get through the door so we could make it to the other side of the mall where our car was parked. I left ahead of my sister and asked the employees if we could get through, but by the time my sister had caught up to me the employees had locked the doors. This left us having to leave out of the front door and walk around the building. Although we didn’t see the man again it was a scary walk around the buildin

Lost Cars and Other Lost Items

Ever have dream where you are looking for something? You know exactly where you put it, but when you go to retrieve the item it’s not where you left it. No matter how hard you search for it you can’t seem to find where it went to. I frequently have dreams where I cannot find my car. Seems to be a reoccurring theme every time I either need to get away from a situation or when I have a deadline to meet and need to be somewhere. Last night I had a dream that I was at a person’s house playing with their kid. I was making a bird out of paper for the child and when I was finished it came to life. Just as soon as it came to life it transformed into a cat. Shortly after I realized that I had to get to work and proceeded to say good bye. When I walked out to the parking lot I could not find my car. I knew where I had left it, but it was not there. I walked back and forth through the parking lot over and over again. Soon the dream landscape turned into endless doors that kept leading to other

Failing, Falling Behind

Image
Have you ever had those dreams were no matter how hard you tried you constantly found yourself failing at something, falling behind, never catching back up, feeling out of place? I have a recurring dream where I am back in school and failing all my classes because I am really far behind. I don’t know why I am so far behind or even what the subject is all about. Last night I had another one of these dreams. I was in school and realized I was so far behind tat there was no way I could catch up. I wanted to just leave and be done with my situation, but I decided to go to class anyway. I couldn’t remember where my class room was or my password to log on to the school system to find out what classes I was taking or the room numbers. I asked the librarian for help, but every time I tried to log on the letters I typed in weren’t the ones I intended to type. After a few attempts I felt the need to go to the locker room and take a shower knowing that if I didn’t hurry I may not have the tim

Falling Asleep Consciously

I had amazing lucid dreams this morning. I had woken up early in the morning and kept myself from moving. I focused on the dream images that started forming and I re-entered a dream right from the waking state. It felt amazing! To keep my self in the dream I focused on tactile sensations. I always find it helpful to focus on touching different things in my dream or focus on running. Recently I had to put down one of my cats, Nora Belle, that had cancer. In the dream I thought how wonderful it would be to hold her again. As I was thinking about her she appeared in my dream. I reached out and touched her fur. It felt so real and very comforting to feel her fur again. In the dream she told me that she was here with her mom. I hugged her tight and felt my spirit soar as I was holding her before I woke up. Sometimes I wonder when we see loved ones in our dreams if they are just dream characters or real visits from our loved ones who have passed on?

Skyline Dream Theater

Hello and welcome to my Dream Theater! The Skyline Dream Theater is a place where you can share your dreams, read about other people’s dreams, share dreaming techniques and more! Since I was young, I have always been fascinated with dreams and altered states of consciousness. What do dreams mean? How do you interpret your dreams? Was Sigmund Freud right when he theorized that dreams show us our unconscious motivations and desires? Or did the Greeks and Romans get it right when they said dreams were gateways to the Gods?
