Growing up, I was scared of the dark. I didn’t even like being out side at night, playing in the yard with cousins and friends that stayed over. I’m not sure why I was like that or if something happened to make me scared of the dark. There are probably a lot of kids that are that way. Perhaps it is just something genetic inside certain people. As an adult, I’m not scared of what is in the dark, but who is in the dark. I walk through our current home in the dark most of the time. There are night lights placed strategically in the home, but for the most part it is dark.
I dream every night. A lot of the dreams are nightmares and I wake up screaming or crying out. My husband has woken me many times from my nightmares. Sometimes I can remember them the next day and sometimes, I don’t remember any of it.
Often, I wonder if it is because of the books I listen to or read or it is just my vivid imagination that causes the night mares. Is it because of something I’ve heard on the television or the radio, a piece of a conversation as I walked by someone? Is there some thing hidden in my memories somewhere that causes me to have those dreams? Do other people have nightmares as often as I do?
Most people dream, I think. Sometimes, I dream in color, most times, it is black and white or non descript. Sometimes my dreams are just people’s voices from my past and I’m reliving something that happened a long time ago.
Water is the common denominator in my dreams or most of them. The other common denominator lately has been either pregnancy or a baby. Not sure about the pregnancy or the baby, but I know that the meaning of water has to do with your emotions in your waking life.
Do you dream every night? Do you dream in color? Do your dreams have a common thread that runs through them? Tell me about your dreams….
