So some days ago I was chatting with a friend and blog reader and we had a bit of a debate about the post below. We argued about how dreams are just our imaginations being overly active, (especially if you're not inclined to believe the spiritual angle of things) or how they're much more. We read the dream below and while I wondered how anyone could read this without thinking that it's something that should be taken beyond face value, my 'opponent' said it's probably just a sign that he needs to sit up. Anyways I thought to share with you guys and hear your thoughts.
I'm a 29 old self employed man, I am not married and don't have children.
Every night for the past 10 years and I mean every night, I have had the same dream. This dream takes me back to either my primary school, secondary school or the University, where I'm usually in a class with my mates both the ones I heard died years back and the ones I haven't seen since we all left the institutions.
In this dream, we're usually in a classroom writing either a test or an exam. The questions are always simple so I answer them but never get them submitted. I watch everybody in the class submit except me. When ever I get up to submit, it's either the paper disappears or I see a blank sheet, sometimes I get too weak to get up from my seat or as I approach the teacher I wake up from the dream. Bottom line is I've never submitted any exam sheet before for the past 10 years.
That's not the one that bothers me. Recently the dream changed to never getting to my proposed destination. Every time I try to go out, I never do. I dress up get into my car and it never starts. My car in real life is very sound, it has never disappointed me before so why is it that it doesn't move in my dreams. Even when I struggle to go out, I end up at the same spot.
So last night/this morning I had the same dream, this time it was me and my older sister. We were going to get some money from her debtors, we both got into her car and drove off, some minutes after we left her house the car stopped and the next thing we found ourselves in a grave yard dancing for a group of people.
I'm tired of keeping this dreams to myself, I've not been able to tell a soul because I dont want any disturbance around me.
But I am here as an anonymous person to seek help. Does this dream make me stagnant?
Because I really can't make any meaning of life. I still depend on my sisters to live. Never had a job, never had a serious relationship. I'm pretty much the same guy from 10 years ago.
Can someone tell me what this dreams mean?
Should I be worried?
This mail was sent to Linda Ikeji, for Linda Ikeji's blog.
I found it most shocking that this guy actually typed this out and still ended by asking if he should be worried.
Do your dreams mean anything more than a source of entertainment to you while you sleep?
Do dreams hold meanings?
Have you had experiences similar to the poster's above?
What's your general opinion on this mail/matter?
