If a Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes, There is Something Seriously Wrong With Me

  This is a dream from a few weeks ago.

  I'm in a play and I don't know my part (this happens a lot in my dreams). So someone fills me in really quick before we go on-- I have one line, then I blow up the auditorium. I repeat, National Security, THIS WAS A DREAM. As in, the asleep kind, not the life-long wish kind.

  So, the play is a disaster. And I say my line, and blow the place up. Then it ALL STARTS AGAIN. It's like Groundhog's Day with Bill Murray, only much shorter and I don't learn any life lessons. The second time, the play goes well, and I blow up the auditorium again. And here we go again!

  This time, my boyfriend (who is played by generic subconscious) is in the middle of a monologue, when an old-timey gangster car comes a-roaring onto the stage, tires squealing. It stops in front of Subconscious Random Boyfriend and the window rolls down. Drive-by shooting. Then the car runs over Made-Up Boyfriend a few times, just for good measure.

  I sprint to Boyfriend, crying and screaming. Everyone yells at me, "Blow it up! Blow it up now, we'll start over!", but I'm too distraught to pay attention. And I know this will be the reality that sticks.

  Why can't I dream about going to school in my underwear, like normal people?

  Anyone else have some seriously disturbing dreams?


  1. HAhahahahah when a scene goes awry, blowing up the auditorium is obviously the answer.

    Most dreams contain messages that serve to teach you something about yourself, the fact that this is a recurring dream may mean that there is something your subconscious is desperately trying to tell you and therefore this dream your having refuses to go away.

    First symbol being your in a play may represent the roles you play in your life and the various acts and personas you put on i.e. Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister etc.

    Second symbol being the explosion could indicate your repressed anger. The rage that you have been holding in has come to the surface in a forceful and violent manner, your subconscious is trying to get your attention.

    Third symbol being the dead boyfriend indicates that something in your own self that is no longer functional and is therefore "dead" you are not being allowed to fully express yourself.

    Fourth symbol being the new boyfriend different from the one in your waken state implies that your existing relationship has moved to a higher level. The relationship has moved toward a more serious phase, i.e. You and your husband welcoming a baby into your lives.

    Fifth symbol of the audience represents the world around you and how it is paying close attention to your actions. Alternatively, it signifies your fears of having your personal feelings and private thoughts discovered or revealed. Maybe you are in fear that others are judging you on how you carry out your role as a mother.

    Sixth and final symbol being the auditorium indicates that there is something that you need to learn from others. PAY ATTENTION TO THOSE AROUND YOU!!!!!!

    1. Very interesting! Though I think I wasn't clear, this wasn't a recurring dream. One-time thing, but the play kept starting over and over within the one dream.

    2. Soooooooo curious why this person needed to be anon.

  3. When Olivia was probably about Lincoln's age I started having nightmares every night. And then they went away. I don't know why. I may never know.

    Hey anon, I have a reoccurring dream about my teeth falling out. What does that mean?? (I'm guessing its my fear of my teeth falling out because its ACTUALLY HAPPENED BEFORE)

    Nightmares after pregnancy, and even during pregnancy are extremely common, especially in new parents. The reason you guys were or are experiencing these dreams could be linked to the anxiety from having to play a new and also a very important role, not only in your own life but now in someone else's, as a result your mind is filing away these emotions and fears and what you guys are experiencing are nightmares. Our minds are like giant offices, everything we absorb throughout our lives are being tossed away into our minds; like a person throwing a piece of paper on a desk, eventually the desk becomes burred in papers and when we sleep everything that we have absorbed is now being filed away; the result is a dream. What most people don't know is that EVERYBODY dreams whether or not they remember their dreams is another thing, but if you can remember your dreams to the best of your ability most likely you can unlock the secrets to your subconscious and realize the reasons behind your dreams, its really a lot of psychology (I'm a psych major by the way lol).


    I researched dreams in which your teeth are falling out and believe it or not they are very common too, especially in women. Teeth can symbolize many things from power, to attractiveness. And when we dream that we are losing our teeth we may be worried about losing control over a certain situation or how others are perceiving us, we may be worried about potentially being embarrassed. These dreams are an indication that you should be more confident in the things you have to say and what you believe in.

    Remember, sometimes what plays out in our dreams is far more terrifying than the actual reality of the situation, it is simply our imagination and our ability as humans to over exaggerate.

    Hope this answers your question :)
