Groundhog Dream #1

I was dream­ing last night that I was falling from a cer­tain height over and over and over and over and over and over again. Falling and land­ing, hard; a bel­ly flop on­to the ground. I felt a bit bruised, I must ad­mit.

I of­ten have dream where I am in­jured, tor­tured or even killed. Sometimes the pain has a pur­pose be­hind it, like my re­cent body-switch­ing dream, but oth­er times, like last night’s falling dream, it has no con­ti­nu­ity or struc­ture at all. Most of the time I am pow­er­less and just have to ex­pe­ri­ence the tor­ture or death or grav­i­ty in the most re­cent ver­sion.

What do these dreams mean? That I am a masochist? That I am rid­ding my­self of guilt sub­con­scious­ly? That I am an ill ju­ve­nile ca­nine?

I bought some more crap for my apart­ment this week­end. I’ve got noth­ing else to say, re­al­ly.

  1. Perhaps it means that you feel your life sit­u­a­tions all have the same re­sult. Falling, get­ting hurt, and then get­ting up again to have the in­stance re­peat.

    Maybe it means you aren’t learn­ing from your mis­takes the first time, and thus every sit­u­a­tion has the same re­sult.

    Or maybe it just means that you feel trapped in some cy­cle you are pow­er­less to stop.

    Or maybe it means I should nev­er at­tempt to in­ter­pret dreams, be­cause I am aw­ful at it.

  2. It means you should be wary when wan­der­ing out on ledges/​cliffs.

    You could be afraid of heights?

    The pain in the dream could be a re­lease of some sort of pent up frustration/​anger that you feel dur­ing the day?
