J Dreams

The night before last was nearly sleepless for me. Typically I have almost complete control over what I dream about, even unto nightmares. Yet Monday night, I had quite uncomfortable dreams, and I am not certain why they were so uncomfortable. Every dream I had, and when ever and where ever it took place, my best friend friend from high school and the first person I ever fell for, J, appeared. She wasn’t as I remember her from HS, she was 4 years older, prettier and even more quixotic. Like some sort of archetypal figure. The dreams were all standard fair, nothing tawdry, but invariably J would turn up, act in a completely normal way, and freak me out every time. I would always wake myself up immediately after she asked a perfectly innocuous question.

At the Fair – Have you ridden the Ferris Wheel?
At my home – How have you been?
On the street – Do I have something on the back of my coat?
etc. ad infinitum

I’m not sure what this night of cracked dreaming means. It could mean that I still have unresolved feelings toward J. She could be nothing more than the best symbol my mind could come up with to represent whatever it is that I am anxious about at this time. It could mean something else entirely. I just don’t know. First I need to figure out what is percolating in the recesses of my mind. Then I’ll have a better idea I think. If you have any questions or need clarifications ask, because I am sure they will help me figure some of this out.

  1. To dream about a former crush, refers to that particular period in your life and what you were feeling. The former crush represents a point in time when you first had the crush on that person.
    To dream that you are at the fair, suggests that you have overcame some minor obstacle and ready to move forward with renewed energy.
    To see your home in your dream, signifies security, basic needs, and values. You may feel at home at your new job or you finally feel settled and comfortable in a new environment
    To see a street in your dream, symbolizes your life’s path. The condition of the street reflects how much control you have over the direction of your life. Is there a name on the street which can offer some significance or hints to the meaning of the dream. To see side streets, refers to a need to explore and return to more traditional ways. It may also suggest and alternative way of life.

    I hope it helps or is at least amusing.

  2. i need to pay attention to my dreams, they are oh so entertaining most of the time.

    also, i don’t believe the places i am located in my dreams mean anything, its my actions and interactions that give me insights.

  3. Sometime during my last year of High School I started getting too weirded out by my dreams, so I’ve since made a fairly good effort to not remember or pay attention to them. Sorry if that isn’t much help, but it would really drive my crazy if I tried to pay attention to them. I know I still dream, I just have made such an effort to not remember them, that I’ve seemed to have forgotten how to turn it back on.

  4. Dreams are very, very interesting. I tend to take mine rather literally, since my brain really despises the abstract. Good luck figuring out your brain.

    Speaking of “J”, send the woman an email. I have it on good authority she misses talking to you. Or, whatever.
