Last night, I had a very strange nightmare. It felt so real. That is the scary part. It lasted for a while too while being sound asleep. In my dreams, I can usually visualize the person or different people all at once and remember them perfectly in the morning. However, lately I have been getting up in the middle of the night and jotting down all of my dreams and nightmares in my journal.
This is exactly what I visualized…
So many weird and vivid dreams lately. The people in my dreams are usually strangers, but acquaintances, friends and distant family members at times. Last night I had an unusual nightmare. It took place at a train or railway station. I visualized myself getting off the train and crossing the street. My heart was racing 100m/p/h. I kept looking around hoping to find someone who could give me directions, but no luck. I was in unfamiliar territory even though the neighborhood seemed familiar. I kept walking in the same direction and came across a crowd of people. Riders were sitting in multiple cars. In my dreams, I vividly recognized a familiar face. This woman and I have never met, but she’s a writer just like me. I have seen pictures of her before. I remember seeing a railroad track or some type of railway. The park attendant told me to get on the ride and fasten my seat belt, but the fear of being in unfamiliar territory really freaked me out and so I took a deep breath and headed down the street.
I stopped at the hot dog stand and asked a young, blond guy for directions. It turned out that he was the one that I was supposed to be paired up with on that roller coaster ride, which by the way we never rode. This guy is a stranger too, but I have seen him before. We sat down on a bench and talked for a while. He held me hand and wiped away a few tears from my right eye. This dream lasted for a while. It felt so real! I remember skimming through an article published in Psychology Today called,”What Your Desires Reveal earlier yesterday, but the article had nothing to do with fear or sense of direction. I have gotten lost many times before while driving, but I’ve always managed to find my way back. I wonder if my subconscious is trying to alert me of some type of danger. Perhaps, one of my desires is to travel or go on a journey somewhere far away!
