Hey Sarah. I had the strangest dream about you last night. I dreamed that you had all of these large glass balls. They had designs in them like marbles and they had flat bottoms so they would sit on a flat surface. You were throwing them into a large pit and you were saying I don’t want these anymore, they chose me, and I don’t want them to control me. I asked you if I could have one of them and you said yes. I was looking at the ball and found that it had a section that would come… Read more »

I had a dream, where i was being stalked?? A person, seemed to be a man, repeatedly kept calling me and my family saying “someone is gonna die” and then would show up at my door minutes later forcing me to call the police not once, not twice but three times as he kept showing up every night. There is and was more, in my dream i went to describe in detail to my best friend what the person did, and where we possibly interacted beforehand. I come here to look, and i notice there’s no subdivision on stalking/being stalked?

First of all dreams about someone you once knew….and don’t have contact with anymore…This is usually more about personality then the actual guy. Sex dreams can be straight forward or it could mean someone that you trust and leave your gaurds down for. If you didn’t feel safe….it maybe a warning that you shouldn’t trust someone.

So I recently had a really vivid dream that I was looking into the mirror in Anne Frank’s annex and I was her just looking deeply into the mirror and then it skipped to us being in the kitchen and her screaming at me “you have to remember, you have to remember, you have to remember!” While she was shaking me very hard, then it skipped to us next to the steps to the attic taking to some boy. Then it skipped again, but this time we were in the attack and she was writing then she started looking out… Read more »

I would say the book is very strong in your subconscious and wants you to continue to remember the story. Your subconscious is not done with it yet.

I had a dream that I was chasing a bad guy with my sister in a truck and we got into the Highway and we lost him. Then I went the speed limit and changing lanes someone hit us and we died. We see our parents come to the see and they saw our bodies and cried. My sister and I hugged them and we were right next to them but they didn’t know because we were dead.

She was driving and texting and I caught her. I told her not to text. Her and I was the only one in the car but I sat in the back. She parked at home. Once we got inside I yelled at her that she was not allowed to text and drive. In my head I was thinking this was so not like her. She argued that I wasn’t her mother and she could do what she want. She cried and called me names. I told her she can’t use my car anymore. She said fine and that she would… Read more »

I tried to run away and he threw a rock at me and threatened to smash my hand with it. Then all of the sudden, it flashed ahead to where I was running away from him,… Read more »

I have had this weird dream that has recurred about 5 times. But I don’t think I will find it in here. I don’t know why but the 1 part I remember scares me. my hands are shaking right now from thinking of it. it’s short but I remember something darting up a ramp like a loop ramp going up, leaving a purple trail behind it. I also remember a bit of something else nothing specific though. golden machines and world domination. the nightmare has scared me so much that twice when I woke up from it I threw up.… Read more »

I do not suffer from PSTD, but I am under A lot of stress. but this has started when I was around 6. and I remembered a bit more I remember this horrible laugh coming from the top of the spiral. there is so much I need to remember. I don’t know if it is showing the darkest parts of me or maybe it has something to do with the future. I sure hope that’s not it though cause if it is, we are all doomed.
