The Question:

 Have you ever had a reoccurring dream? What was it?

My Answer: 

Alright. I’m starting to wonder if what I have to say is being censored by Up Above. I have already written this post in its entirety TWICE and it would not save, and there suddenly was no auto-saved draft even though it was 30 minutes or more in the writing. Seriously? Somebody does not want y’all to know what my recurring dreams are like. Coincidence? I think not. 

Yes, I have recurring dreams, and they are wickedly complicated. And I do mean wickedly. 

First, I and the other women on my mother’s side have this uncanny reception of deceased loved ones in our dreams (namely my grandmother and cousin who committed suicide). They have visited multiple times over the years, and always give a very specific message in our dreams. It is usually directly related to or in response to a particular issue or trial that the family was experiencing at that time. 

Second, I have premonitions. Not the kind where I know I’m going to win the lottery or if I go out that day I’ll be in a car accident. Nothing like that, although knowing if I would win the lottery would be NICE. 🙂 No, I have premonitions of my ex’s when they are about to try to initiate communication and try to come back into my life. At first it just seemed a strange coincidence. But then it KEPT HAPPENING. Every time. I always shared these with my closest friend, who can finish my sentences and know exactly what I’m thinking without having to say anything, and she was the one who pointed it out and made the connection for me. Back then in the early days, I thought it was a godsend. We could have a second chance! (Pah!) Now, I use this eerie tell-tale sign to freak them out! Someone once told me that our dreams show us what we are most afraid of, and let me tell you, I use these premonitions to my utmost advantage.

Lastly, I have had a recurring event happen in the dreams that I can remember. I always am either kidnapped or die (or both). I started having these dreams in high school, ironically not long after I had issues dealing with a hardcore, creepy stalker. (We’re talking the entire football team was on duty every passing period keeping watch and protecting me.) As the years wore on, the setting and even the time period would change. I haven’t had one of these again in several years (thank God!), but the last few I did have started changing drastically. They became much more abstract, where it was hard to distinguish or identify anything of significance in the background. They always seemed to coincide with relationships, so again, dreams show us what we are most afraid of! 

Do you have a recurring dream? What’s it like? Leave a comment with your response and your Friday Follow.

  1. I can’t say your recurring dreams sound very fun! Well, contact with deceased loved ones is nice. My mother has claimed to have premonition dreams a few times. I remember once she dreamed about an earthquake and that morning we learned there was a large earthquake in CA that night. Things like that. My recurring dreams tend to be about driving endlessly or running away from tidal waves and tornadoes.

  2. Oh wow these are absolutely fascinating! Although I’ve never dreamed about my deceased relatives, strangely enough, I have had interesting experiences at the last two family funerals I attended. Directly after each funeral I’d “see” the deceased person, in this case my grand-mother and aunt. They’d walk past me, not as ghosts but as actual physical people. I’ve basically convinced myself it was just because I was really sad, but it was strange nonetheless! I’m following on Bloglovin’! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I hope you have a great week!

  3. Isn’t it odd that so many of our recurring dreams end up being not so great? Why don’t we remember the good/great ones. Anyway, that is certainly one intense dream life, although knowing when the ex is about to try to show up is useful.

  4. I wish that I could have those prophetic dreams. All of mine do not have a time table and so it could be months or years in the future. I used to tell my husband all of them, but he has a sieve for a memory and so he wouldn’t remember them anyways. I have started writing them out to try to get some handle on them. Well that and they make really good stories. New Follower, check us out. http://wp.me/p3CS4f-1MV

    • I thought about writing mine down at one time. Since most of mine (except the ex’s thing) have been several years dormant, I no longer really see the need to do this. Now if only I could remember the rest of my dreams!

  5. Wow, that is some creepy stuff! My aunt and her daughter have dreams like yours were deceased loved ones will contact them with some kind of message or warning. And my dad has these uncanny premonitions where he gets feeling about certain things. I’m just glad that none of that came my way!
