We all have dreams...some we dont remember and some we do.

I always think that dreams are deeper signs of our current emotional state along with current wants...needs...who we think we are., who we truly are and how we think others see us on a level that cant be immediately interrupted by outside influences or distractions.

Sometimes we know we dreaming...an can control the outcome or reaction to certain things.

Other times...we lose all control an it can become a nightmare.
No matter what the belief...at times we need help deciphering what we just dreamt to get a higher understanding.
At least I do.

Sigmund Freud emphasized the importance of the unconscious mind, and a primary assumption of Freudian theory is that the unconscious mind governs behavior to a greater degree than people suspect. Indeed, the goal of psychoanalysis is to make the unconscious conscious.
- google

Differing perspectives can help with life skills including leadership and personal growth.

So let's share our dreams....both positive and negative..hopefully hearing other perspectives of the meaning can help us progress.

There is only a perspective seeing, only a perspective 'knowing'; and the more affects we allow to speak about one thing, the more eyes, different eyes, we can use to observe one thing, the more complete will our 'concept' of this thing, our 'objectivity,' be.

    Yesterday was the first dream i had that i remembered in years. Like since highschool.

    In my dream I was living at my old apartment with my old roommate and he walks out of his room with his gf (they both actually dated at one point) then she kisses him goodbye and he walks out of the door. Im sitting on the couch watching TV. She closes the door and immediately sits next to me and starts to ? . Then i woke up

    It was the weirdest dream ever.

    I dream a lot about water


    Different dreams but water is always present. Like it could be at the beach or Near rushing water , or swimming at the lake or walking thru water in Italy in a Cinderella like ball gown on my way to a Gala




    Weird.....

    I had one months after my mom died and my youngest and are walking down a street to "visit" her*. She's dead but there is a place you can "visit" the dead after they die. She asks where we're going and I tell idk but we'll know when we get there. I look to my left and see a door up some stairs, very basic looking, greyish. I go up and just as I go to grab the door ? it flies open, towards me. Very bright and alluring, I want to go in, but something tells me once in you don't get back out. I slam it shut and run down and tell her never open that one.

    We keep walking and next thing I know we're walking along this beautiful stoned path, seems like underground or cavernous, but it's dimly lit and glowing things in these gorgeous gardens and stuff. Little small cottages like a little village or something. She asks which one is Nana's and I say we'll know. We walk up to the door and open it inwards and and inside in dark wood all carved and ? just ... so amazing. We have to sit and wait cuz Nana isn't "there" yet. We gaze upon the cottage and then we're talking with my mom. I ask how things are "over there" she says they are good but not what expected, we chat some more and notice she's not making sense anymore. I realize it is time to leave cuz she is getting "worlds" mixed up.

    It's the only dream I can recall almost all the details. If I could draw worth a ? I would draw it all. But alas my virgo ass don't operate that way.

    Good lookin out on this thread bruh

    So for the last 6 or 7 nights I been having the same dream.. like the setting and the events that are happening haven't been the same in any of them but the outcome has in every one of them.

    In the dream I'm chillin with all my boys that I came up with, Just catching up and ? then outta no where ? just takes a turn for the worst, 1 of my boys ends up either shot or stabbed and all the other homies that were chillin with us are gone so it's just me and him and I'm tryin to save him by calling for help.

    I don't know what this ? mean but I feel like it's something. I aint ever had the same dream night after night and each time it's the same homeboy that's in the situation and i always wake up before I can see what happen.

    He one of my Day 1s, almost like a brother but i ain't talked to him in almost a year cause I chose to get my ? together while he still out here getting into ? . I'm thinking maybe it's just a sign that I need to hit em up or somethin?

    It's never a bad thing. Even one dream where I'm at some resort on like the 50th floor with all glass walls around me. Tide rises all the way to the top and there is marine life everywhere. But we are just relaxing in the room lol .

    I think you are coming to terms with getting you life together and feeling like it will come at a cost.

    kinda like...I'm good but my boys aint...an feeling like you won't be able to save him or them.
    the main person....may be the person you feel could either use the most help or you feel the closet too.

    or even if you make it out...they won't want to change..so you feeling helpless and gotta watch them waste away.

    this can all mean you about to come up something serious

    Man, since I was bout 7 or 8, I been conscious in my dreams


    I can't control the theme or events or surroundings, but I'm in total control of my actions


    & some dreams be like regular days

    for instance, I had one where my homie & I went to the gas station for rellos & drinks, & I couldn't decide between lemonade or sprite.. I eventually chose sprite


    but the weirdest one I can remember was yrs ago on sum "Inception" type ? where I fell asleep within my dream

    (in my dream) I was walkin round got tired, sat at a table, put my head down & fell asleep (within the dream)


    Suddenly I was at a party, seein so many folks I grew up w/ & went to school w/


    then the cops raided & I woke up at the table


    Now, in my conscious mind I was aware I jus woke up from a dream, but didn't realize I was still within a dream


    then somethin woke me up for real & it scared the ? outta me



    I recognised I was in my room, but wasn't sure if it was the "real" reality


    took me bout 10mins to put it together & figure that I was already asleep when I went to the table


    trippy ? , still ? w/ me to this day

    I thought about this too, especially since I have been making moves lately and traveling in a different/smaller circle so to speak. Before that we were always making moves together but at some point I realized we were kinda goin down different paths and didnt want the same ? anymore so we fell off.

    you are right...I'm not frued or Carl Jung....
    but we all have a unconscious cultural connection.

    anyone of us can spark the thought in someone else that helps us interpret our confusing unconscious thoughts.
