In a dream, we all become characters. You are above the earth in an aircraft, which means your mind is very vivid and can conjur up the impossible.

"Alice laughed: "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things." "I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."

Funny how one reasons in a logical way, when dreaming!

What is it about your job that is troubling you?

Maybe the fact that I could lose it. I've been there for a long time and the thought of being forced to move on seems a little daunting.

yes I have been considering that. Perhaps being held back at work from achieving what I want to achieve.

I feel something is holding you back, against your will. Your mind is all over the place, the people don't care, so it is up to you to release whatever it is.

you are not wrong Davide. Woke feeling a bit uneasy after this. Tapped out what I could remember from the dream on the laptop.

She had a friend.

I recently had quite a disturbing dream that shook me up a bit. When I awoke I wrote it down to ponder over.  I would appreciate suggestions as to how best to interpret it.


I was aboard some sort of craft visiting various planets. The crew and I were playing cards, watching a movie - we became characters within the movie. 2 comments


The movie ended and craft landed on an alien planet. A close friend and I explored the surroundings (which were pretty much the same as a earth). We came across what looked to be a cul de sac with banks that dropped away from the roadside. Down below were groups of small animals with signs stating what each a creature was, like one might see at a zoo; some of the small creatures were asleep. There was also a den full of badgers or something similar.

My friend and I both agreed that it would not be suitable for me to live here as the creatures might attack and kill the pet cat that I owned. 1 comment


Further afield there was a department store which we both entered to buy a Christmas presents. I was after a particular present. A customer services rep told me that only one shop had this item at a reduced cost. I got separated from my friend and I walked outside hoping to find her.   2 comments


The streets around me was crowded with people, among them were several of my senior managers from where I worked. Somehow knew I was in trouble with them for some sort of intergalactic crime and would surely lose my job because of previous written warning. 2 comments


This had become public knowledge and people were arriving to witness the event.  A woman led me back into the building which had a strange lockdown process for prisoners that stopped them from getting away.


I was then taken down a long narrow corridor and arrived at the threshold into another part of the store separated by a large draping curtain which followed my every move; barring me from getting through. There was also some sort of force field holding me back. 2 comments


My CEO suddenly arrived and gave me a brief talk about what to expect throughout the trial. Last port of the dream they had arranged some jailer to put chains on me, like an old convict. The people within the shop went about their business as the jailer pinned the large chain firstly to my ear then attached a claw like devise to the top of my head. I could feel the chain stretching and digging into me each time that I moved. 2 comments


It was then that I woke up. 2 comments
