Vivid Dreams

I have been having unusually vivid dreams for about a week now. Here are some of the things that I’ve dreamed about:

One night I saw the aurora borealis and sparkly shooting stars. I was so curious about these images that I started looking up possible interpretations.

According to Dream Moods,

To see the aurora borealis in your dream, represents renewed energy, vitality, awe, insight and youth. A situation or relationship will be made clear to you or a positive spiritual experience will fill you with warmth and love. You will gain some amazing new wisdom and knowledge. Alternatively, the dream indicates that you know what you need to do, but may be too lazy or too afraid to jump into action.

I am expecting a situation and a relationship to be made clear to me on Wednesday. Also, it is likely that I am too afraid to embrace what is happening right now.

To see a shooting star in your dream, is a sign of self-fulfillment and advancement. A shooting star is also symbolic of a new birth and changes in your life.

Ooo, I like this – “new birth” and “changes in my life.” Very good.

Twice I’ve dreamed of people committing suicide. One time it was some random man who took all of his clothes off before he collapsed. One time I dreamed of a group of boys, probably around 7-9 years old, sitting on a bench eating poisoned caramel or taffy. That was quite disturbing.

To see someone commit suicide in you dream, highlights your concerns for that person. Also consider what characteristics and qualities in that person you may be trying to “kill” and annihilate in your own self. Perhaps you hope that you are not like that person in some way and are making attempts to get rid of those traits within your own self.

I am trying to rid myself of fear, doubt, insecurity, and stress. Perhaps this dream keep happening because of these efforts. I’ve been doing positive affirmations, meditation, yoga, and prayer.

Two nights ago I saw a beautiful sunrise in my dreams. I had just seen a beautiful sunset in real life, so it doesn’t surprise me that I had a dream like this. However, I know that it was a sunrise and not a sunset.

To see the sunrise in your dream, represents new beginnings, renewal of life and energy, and fulfillment of your goals and purpose. It may also denote that you are about to embark on a new adventure in your personal life.

Last night I dreamed that I was going to the bathroom and saw red blood. I’m not terribly surprised given my history of recurrent pregnancy loss. I really wish that I didn’t remember that dream. I dreamed that I miscarried right before I lost my last baby. This dream wasn’t about a miscarriage, but it was blood, and it was coming out of me.

To dream that you are bleeding or losing blood, signifies that you are suffering from exhaustion or that you are feeling emotionally drained. It may also denote bitter confrontations between you and your friends. Your past actions has come back to haunt you. Women often dream of blood or of someone bleeding, shortly before or during their periods or while they are pregnant.

Ok, so this makes sense since I’m pregnant, exhausted, and emotionally drained. I’m also dealing with something hurtful that a family member directed at me and am not wanting to confront the issue further.

Any more vivid dreams, and I’ll have to start a Dream Journal page.

Update (1/5/09) – it seems as though the vivid dreams have subsided, or maybe I’m just not remembering them.  I’m somewhat relieved and somewhat disappointed.

  1. Wow, I didn’t even know you were pregnant! Congratulations! (I finally saw your new “a different pregnancy” page.) I will be praying for you, too.

  2. I’m just “re-entering” blogworld this week so I didn’t even know you were pregnant. Congrats!! I’ve been killing off family members (even my own SON-the vbac baby) in my dreams this pregnancy. Crazy pregnancy dreams. huh.

    oh yeah, I’m pregnant too! 15 weeks :)

  3. VBAC warrior – so am I. Congrats on your pregnancy. I was over at your site earlier today and saw that you are pregnant too!!!

    I’ll post my exciting news on THURSDAY, hopefully. Sorry to be a tease.

  4. I wanted to let you know about two dreams I’ve had recently. A week ago I dreamed that this baby was 9lbs 12oz. Then last night I dreamed that at my appt. tomorrow I hadn’t gained any weight and my weight was 138. I looked up numbers at the dream moods website and they suggest adding the numbers up until you get just one number. Guess what? both 9 12 and 138 add up to the SAME number: 3. This is what is says about the number 3 in dreams:
    Three signifies life, vitality, inner strength, completion, imagination, creativity, energy, and self-exploration. Three stands for trilogy as in the past, present, and future or father, mother, and child, etc.

    Pretty cool, huh?

  5. Wait… you dreamed about a 9lb 12oz baby, AND you weigh 138? 138 PREGNANT?!?!?! I’m so “hating” you right now. :p

    It’s very cool that both of those numbers add up to three and what that signifies! How wonderful.

    Hoping to have good news to post later today!
