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