You Need to Be Honest With Yourself

Dreams challenge us to be honest about who we are, what we want, what we fear, what causes us pain, our insecurities, and the things that are holding us back in life. They often provide insight into what’s going well and what’s going not-so-well. Our subconscious is like our own personal therapist, and we’d be wise to listen to her!

Getting into dream interpretation has so many benefits. It can bring liberation, self-awareness, self-knowledge, a strong connection to our inner selves, and an awareness of our emotions.

This article will explain many of the most important elements you'll need to interpret your dreams.

Step 1: Determine the Function of Your Dream

You can figure out what your dream means by identifying which of the following functions it may be able to serve.

For example, if you watched a movie about vampires and then had a dream about vampires that night, the most logical function of that dream, taken from the list below, would be "Organizing Knowledge & Experience." Your brain took in certain elements of the movie, and your dream organized those elements into your existing knowledge base.

The Main Functions of Dreams

  1. Expressing and processing emotions
  2. Maintaining or improving mental health
  3. Providing information on what we want, need, think, or feel
  4. Giving sexual release
  5. Organising knowledge and experiences — de-fragging the mind like a computer
  6. Learning (making connections)
  7. Helping with problem solving (creativity, thinking out of the box, new inventions, finding solutions)
  8. Providing wish-fulfillment (e.g. having a sexy dream about being with someone famous)
  9. Connecting to spiritual realities (rare!)

Through lucid dreaming and dream incubation, we can develop confidence in ourselves and in any area of our lives that we choose to. We can also go on some amazing adventures!

Step 2: Don't Ignore Your Emotions

The emotions we experience in our dreams are one of the most important aspects to consider. Believe it or not, our dreams are trying to be obvious! Understanding dream language can take a bit of practice, but, once you get into the right mindset, you’ll find that the majority of your dreams can be interpreted quickly and easily.

An Example of Why Emotions in Dreams Are Important

  • If you are driving a fast car in your sleep and feel exhilarated, this could mean that you're progressing at a great speed in some area of your life, and you are finding it exciting.
  • But what if you are driving a fast car and feel terrified of crashing? The meaning will be vastly different. If could mean that you are traveling too fast in an area of your life and feel out of control.
  • What if you are driving in a fast car that can only go up to 10 miles an hour, and you feel impotent and frustrated? Then you will need to look at what is holding you back in your life, whether it be an inside or outside circumstance.

Make a special note of your feelings in relation to each symbol that appears in your dream. This valuable information will help you determine what the message is.

If you dream about a house you lived in as a child, ask yourself what was happening in your life at the time you lived there.
If you dream about a house you lived in as a child, ask yourself what was happening in your life at the time you lived there.

The Relevance of Recent and Past Events in Dreams

Recent Events

These come up a lot. Sometimes it is because our minds are trying to process and organise what has recently happened. At other times, recent events are handy symbols that represent other information.

Past Events, People, and Places

We also frequently see these in our sleep. They are usually telling us that there is something from our past that needs understanding or resolving. We will normally find that the issue is also prominent in our lives right now.

Example

If you dream about a house you lived in as a child, ask yourself what was happening in your life at the time you lived there.

  • Did your parents separate?
  • Did you change schools?
  • Was it a particularly happy time?
  • Ask yourself why your mind would want you to revisit that time again.
  • Are there things or issues from that time that are still holding you back?
  • Did you make decisions based on events in the past that are no longer relevant or useful?
  • Do you need to recapture a certain quality or feeling?

Prophetic and Psychic Dreams

There’s a strong myth that all of our dreams foretell the future, and this is simply not true. That’s not to say that it doesn’t happen — I've had quite a few myself.

Dreams can occasionally give us information about future events (which is where the myth comes from). However, unless we have highly developed psychic abilities, these are usually few and far between. This begs the question, “How do we know when our dream is prophetic?” Unfortunately, the answer is we can’t know until the event we dreamt of takes place.

A lot of people have experienced dreams that involve ESP or, what we might call, psychic events. Again, these are quite rare. Most people might be lucky to have one or two of these in their lifetime. They include:

  • Dreams of a deceased relative or friend (accompanied by feelings of joy, peace, and love)
  • Seeing a deceased person we do not know
  • A dream involving extra sensory perception (ESP), such as seeing an event in our sleep that is taking place at the very moment we are sleeping
  • Seeing angels, spirit guides, or religious figures
  • Visions of past lives
  • Out-of-body experiences
  • Astral travel

Those who have had these kinds of dreams report that they are exceptionally vivid, and that the emotions are particularly intense. There is also a sense of watching the scene as an observer rather than being involved in it.

Nightmares

While distressing, nightmares can tell us a great deal about ourselves. In particular, they tell us about what we fear, what causes us the most emotional pain, and what is holding us back in life. Nightmares usually express deep feelings and thoughts that we are unconscious of. That's why they're so frightening; they bring to our attention emotions that we perceived to be threatening, devastating, and/or overwhelming at some point in our past.

The occurrence of a nightmare is a sign that we're now ready to deal with these emotions, and that we need to deal with them for the sake of our emotional, mental, or spiritual health. This statement may sound obvious, but it's surprising how many of us don't understand that our nightmare is telling us about something we are frightened of or anxious about. Take the time to discover its meaning, and you'll benefit in the long term.

Common Dreams

Below are three common dreams with examples of questions you need to ask yourself in order to accurately interpret them.

1. A Partner Being Unfaithful

Dreams of your partner cheating on you are most often an expression of your own anxiety and insecurity. Very rarely will they be your intuition alerting you about actual cheating. You should rule out all other possibilities first by asking yourself:

  • Are you scared that your partner will leave you?
  • Do you have low self-esteem and/or low confidence and wonder whether you deserve your partner?
  • Have you or your partner cheated on each other or other partners before, and you are worried this will happen again?
  • Do you have problems trusting people?
  • Do you find it difficult to trust yourself?
  • Are you attracted to someone else?

2. Being Naked

What does being naked tell you? This will depend greatly on how you feel about it in your dream. Are you embarrassed, ashamed, free, liberated, vulnerable, scared, indignant, exposed, natural, or exhilarated?

If you experienced a negative emotion in relation to your nakedness, it could mean:

  1. You are feeling very vulnerable at the moment.
  2. You are scared of being exposed in some way.
  3. You are insecure about your body.
  4. You are hiding something you need to share.

If you experienced a positive emotion in relation to your nakedness, it could mean:

  1. You feel totally free.
  2. You feel liberated from a problem, setback, or difficulty.
  3. You are at one with your physical nature.
  4. You enjoy your body.
  5. You are being completely honest about who you are, what you want, or what you need.

3. Dreams Involving Animals

When interpreting animal symbols, I often ask myself, "What special characteristics does this animal embody?"

Eagle

  • The eagle soars freely high above the earth. Therefore, the eagle has a broad perspective of what is below and will be able to "take in the whole picture." Do you already see the whole picture, or you do need to take a more objective view of something? Maybe you need to look at things from another perspective.
  • The eagle is strong and powerful. Do you feel strong and powerful or does someone in your life embody these qualities?
  • The eagle is a skillful hunter. Do you need to hunt something down or do you feel like someone is hunting you down?

Bees

  • Are you feeling stung by something that happened recently or by something someone said?
  • Bee is a homophone of "Be." Is your dream of bees telling you to just "be" yourself?
  • Think about what is special about bees. Bees are very busy, productive, and industrious creatures. They work cooperatively for their survival. They swarm together for protection and to attack. They are hive creatures: the group is more important and more powerful than the individual. They produce a nourishing food (honey). Do one of these things prick your intuition about what bees mean to you?

Questions & Answers

  • I am over 50, never met a kind caring man only jerks. I guess I am single for life, but lately I've dreamed of a caring kind man who makes me feel happy often. What does this mean?

    The most likely reason is that your dreams are simply helping you express your deeply held wish to find a loving, caring partner. They may also be encouraging you on to take action to find this kind of person.

    Sometimes we can actually dream of people before they come into our lives and this could be the case. Fingers crossed for you!

  • My grandmother and I don't have a good relationship. I had a dream where she held a knife to my throat and told me that she hates me. What is the meaning of this dream?

    It's merely an expression of the complicated relationship you have. It doesn't mean that she wants to hurt you physically.

      I had a dream that I relived my mom's death death but she died differently in my dream than she did in real life.!!!!!! It was not a good dream. The pain of losing my mother has been hard even though she's passed almost 4 years now. But in my dream she came home to die at home and I was in my bedroom when my dad started to move her and her stuff into his room and then out of nowhere I went to my gmas house and my whole family was there and sobbing. So I asked what was going on and my dad told me she passed away 3 days ago but i was just sitting with her before I went to my gmas house and tried to explain it to him and he just kept saying no you weren't she passed away. I looked at him a screamed why couldnt you tell me. And I ignored his answer and screamed again saying I fucking hate you and my gmas tried to stop me from screaming and cussing at him but I looked at her and told her htat I fucking hate her too. And then I was running out in the yard and fell and grabbed to sticks and wrote my moms name in cursive with both stickes in each hand. Can you help me figure out what my dream meant? Please!

So I guess his mom was gone?) sitting in a weird chair she has her head dangled down and eyes are black with red centers she is just like a puppet and then a voice saying ...something like you can’t escape and then i see I can’t rememwbr what the main “villain” of the dream looks like but it goes to kill me and ...I wake up with a terrible feeling something bad is going to happen.

      First off I usually never have nightmares, I feel like I have a good life that Im really happy with but I guess I'm wrong. My experience started with me driving on a highway in the pitch black with a black dodge van following me. I made nothing of the fact it was following so close with its brights on though. I actually felt relaxed since I had a "friend" there with me to share this driving experience together. Then I came across this scene with a white bunny suit laying face down in the middle of the road all mangled and torn and it occured to me there might be a body in there. I turned my car to steer away from the suit and literally thought nothing of it. Then eventually theres more then more then more. It got to the point where every square foot had a torn and mangled white bunny suit. I remember feeling a little distressed but had no actual feeling of horror (which is extremely weird to me). Then I look in the rearview mirror and see two black bunny suits sitting in the back of my car staring at me. They definitely had people in them. I screamed over and over but it was one of those screams like a whisper since I was asleep. I tried to open the door, nothing. I tried to open my phone but there was only and image of a straggly looking Mickey mouse on my screen. So I turned around and start punching on these things over and over. Then my dream somehow transitioned to me driving in my hometown along the river front. It was still pitch black but a lot of people walking. Then a motorcyclist comes driving down extremely fast and scraped my car and sprawled on the ground. It was a woman and her family happened to be walking and saw it all, she was all alright. Then they offered to let me sleep in their house to rest off the shakiness. (Right now as I'm typing I have no idea what the hell I'm dreaming or why I am). So I walk in there house and have a huge sense of being there before. For some reason there was snow on the ground in their back yard even though it was warm outside. Then I wake up in my dream (I'm still dreaming) on my old bed in my old house which i move out about 4 years ago. I noticed it was very bright outside and I got a sense of ease after seeing that. I go to my sisters old room and scream about this terrifying dream I had and then my parents come up and start yelling at me saying I need to grow up and to stop acting like a scared little kid. Which I thought was very weird considering I have no issues with my parents at all. I actually quite enjoy being with them. So I go in my room and my friend suddenly walks in and I ask what he's doing here and he replied,"to hang out". So I wipe my tears from my eyes, which he noticed but didnt being it up, and ask if he wanted to hangout with the boys. He said yes and that's when I woke up. I have this poster in my room and when I woke up I saw a straggly looking Mickey mouse with skinny everything all hunched over and creepy but I realized that I'm not dreaming and that's not a horrifying Mickey mouse. It took me a while to recuperate and I think I still am. Right now its 1:45 am and I have the ligh te s on and can't go to sleep. I know people probably won't read this but I really need to share it right now.

      In my dream my eldest daughter (sierra) took a mirror out in to a field, there was a creek near by and she was playing with a little girl i had a fear in me as i watched them. I had a feeling of a man, known either to me or to her was going to harm her. I watched as sierra planted the mirror that she had and stood it up in the ground, she leaned it forward as she sat on the ground and i saw her reflection clearly in the mirror her face looked as though she was feeling abit sad then suddenly her little friend cut her hand on the mirror And cried and screamed as if she was in terrible pain. Then all of a sudden it was as if i was looking at the little girl through a broken spy glass and for a second i couldnt make out the image then i moved the spy glass slowly and saw the broken image of the little girl crying and holding her bloody finger. Sierra then sat over the girl (the girl now lying down) and sierra is looking around and calling out desperately for someone to help i then see in the distance 3 children and a white car the children are peering around the side of the tree as if spying on her, my feeling is still very scared for sierras safety and these children can help her but they are hestating and then i wake up

      i was involved with this guy within our group of friends and now that's over and we are okay we just went back as friends. Well now i've been dreaming about him quite non stop and last night i dreamt that we were at a store and he asked if i wanted to go walk around and look at stuff and i said no and he just said okay and stayed sitting down. Then i asked him if he wanted to go and he said yes and he got really happy and when we started walking around he became very fond to me like he kept hugging me and stuff like if we were together so i dont know what it means.

      I'm 18 last night I had a very weird dream I can't fully remember but I do know I dreamt about a boy at one point no one I know personally but in my dream he was like my lost half brother who I never saw, I felt so happy to see him in my dream it felt so real that I cried in my dream and even exchanged snapchat so we could stay in touch (though the boy was young) he was still able to talk and recognize me, he had to leave in my dream which made me sad, when I woke up I realized he wasn't real and that I became emotionally attached to my "little brother" and now miss him, I'm not quite sure what this means, is there any help/insight u can give me to help me better understand this? Thanks, Brandon

But last night he was in it, only he looked like someone else...from a TV show...anyways, for some reason I couldn't turn this spicket off and my arm just above my rist was hurting super bad... throughout this dream though...I was trying to collect as many little golf balls as I could before Tim ran out and then for some reason there were baby chicks trying to get worms....and I had to wait a very long time for them to get a worm. Anyways back to the water. So then he comes out in dry new clothes...and he sees me, I told him the issue and he tried to fix it but he turned the water the wrong way and it sprayed all over him...he stood there in shock and I was laughing my eyes out!!!

      The dream is a reflection of what happened in real life. You wished to be close with Vicky and there was some reciprocation but the boyfriend fought for her and won.

      This sounds like a skeleton in the closet. A hidden secret you feel is very powerful and scary and could hurt you (the fear is of emotional hurt). It's related to your family. How was your childhood and your relationship with your parents?

      I can only tell you about my own experiences with sleep paralysis and maybe it will help you. I went through a period of experiencing it when I was very emotionally distressed and in deep grief over the loss of a relative. Once I started therapy and working through my feelings the sleep paralysis stopped.

      I don't know if it's the case that sleep paralysis is a reaction to trauma for most people, but it certainly was for me. Can you relate to that at all?

      Dream I had on Wednesday, April 10th.

      There was one guy specifically who wanted to kill me literally. That was another guy who was responsible for not letting me go so that I could be killed by Guy number one they chased me and kept kept catching me I had to call and run and grab at the grass to help grip and pull myself forward lunging forward running through trees jumping over or I should say off of ledges dropping 2030 feet going through backyards. And still got caught again. And then was talking to the killer and his lackey. Finally the main killer decided not to kill me after earning has respect for standing up for myself not from running but finally stopping to fight don't know who the guys were or what was it about but they sure as hell did not like something I did to run our lease they thought I did. At one point there was three of them I definitely shoved more than one of them. And overpowered the lackey multiple times when running away so that I did not get caught by the actual killer. I only gave up every time the lack he caught me with a gun but I physically overpower him every time until eventually standing up to the main killer who's respect I earned to the point of deciding not to kill me for having the balls to face my fear.

      I did almost forget something very important! Every time I would get Farenuff away where I had a big enough lead. I kept trying to call Shane on my cell phone that I seem to have with me. Trying to tell him to come rescue me but I could never get through.

      Emotions experienced in the dream which is of critical importance!!!

      According to the what the experts say. Were as follows… At first it was intense fear like I couldn't run fast enough so I had to continuously grab the grass on the ground in front of me to pull in lunge my body forward again and again and again to get Farenuff away. To jump over cliffs. When the Lackey cut up with me I felt as though I had the power to overcome him so I did physically I feel powerful. When the real killer came I was a little less brave and became paralyzed at times. But after about The fourth or fifth time of me running away and taking the risk because I was going to die anyway. I stood up to him too and I ended up with the sense of relief.

      I keep dreaming about me, my parents and my dog arriving at a small island kind of like the one in Ireland with all of the columns, except that there where only the shapes of them and the island was flat, only about ten feet wide and the shapes are cement. We walk around for a bit, then one of the shapes comes loose, so I open it and me, my mom and dad go down a staircase. We find a large treasure chest at the bottom, but covering the gold is a pile of bones and a large rusted cutlass covered in spiderwebs, suddenly the bones come alive and a skeleton with red eyes swings the sword and cackles saying " I am going to kill you ALLLLLLL!!" We run out of the room, but the skeleton cuts through my mom and dad, I keep running even though the boat has gone and I can't leave, or swim because the water is blood and will dissolve me. My dog tries to bite though the bones of the skeleton, but he kills him and starts to dance like a madmen, swinging his sword, cackling and his eyes are now on fire. He tackles me to the floor and as he is about to drive the sword through my chest, I wake up.

I dreamt I was in a van with other people and on this winding mountain road with guardrails on the left, then the road turned into a 90 degree straight downward to the end of the road, there was no end of the road, it was a roaring ocean ahead of us and we were headed straight for this ocean. I t was overcast looking and people walking by the guardrails. The driver of the van put the van into reverse and we came back up the hill. Then the dream was over.

      Where does sleep paralysis come into play? I'm always experiencing sleep paralysis and it's mentally and emotionally terrifying/draining. When I finally feel that I'm being let up I literally run from the room i was sleeping/hallucinating in and some times even leave the house I'm so frightened by it. There have been times i feel like I've been choked so hard that i thought I had died. I woke up and wondered if I was in some kinda purgatory. I ran out of our house in broad daylight half naked and talked to the first person I seen outside just to make sure she could see me and hear me and that I wasn't dead. Unfortunately it was a frightened woman walking her dog, i can only imagine how crazy I looked. Any input would be awesome as to what is causing this or if there's any reality to it, Please and thank you!

      I won't try to disclose the details shared In the dream as It got suddenly intimate but I was talking to a certain person online.

      In real life, I know a woman called Vicky. We have met a handful of times, she lives in Ireland, myself In the UK and we got to be friends over Facebook.

      While my intentions were always to see her and maintain our connection as friends, admittedly I began to have feelings for her. The reason this may have been bad Is because she is in a relationship, that being said, all I truly did was talk to her sincerely and she would reciprocate. To anyone who pays attention we clearly had the capacity to get closer to each other but we never did anything that could be seen as her cheating and myself homewrecking. To be fair they had only been together 6 months at the time and they began as long distance, not sure you could call it homewrecking.

      Regardless, the boyfriend did not like it, although not openly. He took to belittling me at any given chance and would obnoxiously create argumentative pitfalls to make me look stupid. In a conversation he turned into an argument he went as far as to patronise me, condescend to me and ultimately called me incompetent. He was all - round insulting and rude. I understand people feel the need to protect their property by these measures but Vicky isn't his property, she is a person who can handle herself and all he has to do is trust her.

      His insecurity in his own relationship became most clear as whenever I typed anything publicly to Vicky that was just being friendly, he always made certain his presence was well - known by ensuring he would have a comment of his own with the intention to outshine mine and overly shower Vicky with pseudo - romantic clichès. Not out of sincerity but competitive paranoia. Im not sure she ever noticed this pattern. The most noteworthy of these times is she posted a picture of herself waiting for an event while wearing a beautiful dress and I commented as I usually would. He then commented something along the lines of "Oh wow, you look utterly gorgeous. Im such a lucky man, I am in this for the long haul". Anytime I said anything to her just gave him more ammo to act 'big man romantic'.

      Eventually, I took to ghosting the general group. I could no longer tolerate his behaviour and this resulted in myself neglecting the previous connections I was forging with Vicky. Something the boyfriend clearly wanted, by this point it was obvious he knew how to manipulate people. Having said that, whenever Vicky happens to come to the UK to attend any kind of function, shes always certain to try and get me involved, likely Vickys way of making sure she has maintained some involvement with myself. Its largely unspoken, but we both know all too well that her boyfriend isn't a fan of me and for the sake of avoiding drama I feel compelled to just take the hits. In most recent times, my communication with Vicky is next to nothing, although between us its not a bad thing. We mutually understand it is just better this way, considering what the boyfriend is like. He is wall to wall showing off and bravado. If he isn't posting about his girlfriend like we all need reminding, he poses for photos involving martial arts.

      Oddly, the last time I was near the boyfriend, for the first time ever he was comepletely amicable with me which was completely unexpected. This indicates that there has been a change, like he has been given some kind of incentive but I know one thing for certain -- I cannot let the guy get close to me, I can best describe him as venomous. I could never be scared of him but my instincts are telling me to not be friends with him.

      Anyway, my long and detailed description of life events is a precursor to my dream as in to potentially understand the dream, one needs to understand the dynamics, hence the above writing.

      The dream was one of feeling elation, like I had finally done something I have wanted to do for so long. I felt happy and fulfilled. The setting was like real life, normally my dreams have an altered setting but this was in real - time. I was speaking with Vicky again online but I was confessing my feelings for her and she was returning them. He weren't holding back which had me wondering if this mean't she no longer had a boyfriend. Then as we were getting into finally being completely honest with each other, my messenger gets a notification. It was one of those group messages so I wasn't the only one who got it -- it was from the boyfriend but he was advertising fighting lessons while posing in a high - kicking stance. Weirdly, once that appeared everything began to fall out of focus and before I knew it I was awake.

      Aside from the end, the dream was nice but despite that I am feeling uneasy because I cannot understand 'why' I had the dream or what I am supposed to do or take from it. I don't talk to Vicky anymore even though we are friends. I really have made little attempt to contact her and for the past few months, aside from seeing her on the 3rd of February, she hasn't been actively on my mind.

      I had two dreams a few weeks back and they both reallly freaked me out and I rlly wanna know what they mean.

      My first one I don’t remember much but my boyfriend was literally about to get crushed by this car so I jumped in front of him so I would die instead of him but in the moment I didn’t think about death I thought about protecting someone’s I love. But after that happened I woke up

      My second dream was strange but confusing. So there is this guy at my school. He literally drives me crzy. He likes to mess around with lots of girls in a sexual way. Anyway I dreamt that me him and some other girl were in a staircase room between floors. I think we’re we’re about to do something that you know isn’t right for my age because he started pressuring me to do it. But I felt scared bc we were all naked and I’m rlly insecure. Next thing you know my mom walked in and saw us and I felt so embarrassed bc I had no clothes. And I literally just blamed everything on him even though I was partly to blame but I was scared of what my mom would say. But after that thank god I woke up.

      Im once dreamed that I was in the living room of my house, watching TV. But I suddenly got up and looked out the window behind me. I could see the driveway and the side yard with the tree, but my father was standing there with 3 men, but they were like shadows, only black. I heard my step mother at the time shout at me as I ran outside, but I didn't listen, as I watched my father get shout by one of the men. I ran out the door, but only got to the driveway when one of them point the gun to me and fired. I went down on the side yard, and started seeing red as I went down, with me looking at the men and my fallen father. I died, and I then woke up sweating and panting. My brother were also beside me watching the window during the dream, and I was on the opposite couch when I ran to see the window. What does this dream mean?

      I've had a recent dream where I was placed into a different home with different people, and this pale figure who looked about 17 used to knock on my window and take me outside and into the woods, I remember the place that i was in vividly, but I do not recognise it, as it was desolate and all alone somewhere in the country side on a trail. The figure used to talk to me, and tell me jokes, But he never told me his name, He sounded like a boy so I reckon he is one. I had a dream the next night of the same boy, He tapped on my window and asked me If i was going outside with him, I told him that i couldn't as my father was staying up all night. The figure got angry and pulled me outside by my neck. before kissing me then shooting himself in the head, I woke up straight after that, and that boy feels familier, and i feel very guilty because of this dream, I need help.

We were all running around my house in circles for some reason then they all disappeared. It left me alone sitting by a dead tree that was in my backyard. At that time one of deceased my cats came up to me then I woke up. I have been having odd dreams like that for some time now, can you tell me what they mean?

      I dreamed that I was driving my mum's first car on a highway.

      My brother, mum and dad were in the car as well. I was going fairly fast and because of another car that was stopped or driving much slower on a bend we crashed, but at that moment we were miles away from the car. I looked back just to see it burst into flames. And then instantly we were back by the car, it was only a pile of burnt scrap metal, i remember to see the driver (mine) burnt arm still holding the steering wheel. After this we were hanging out either at a cafe or someones house with other relatives that are not in the UK.

      We could still talk and interact with people.

      The following night the same dream continues. My concern was that I couldn't do anything about the money in the bank, I couldn't give it to my nephews.

      At the cafe I started to talk with other people.

      At one moment the door opened by itself and I stepped out just to find £3.50, the 50p coin was missing a bit, my brother kept it.

      This time I think that we were at my girlfriend house and I was in the bedroom and when I came out a friend was leaving the house and I didn't her to see me.

      I just had a dream where my two cousins and I were at a library. The older cousin and I left the library to go for a walk and were followed and attacked by two men. My cousin was stabbed but I fought the men off and stabbed them. Then my cousin morphed into my favorite celebrity, my best friend and back to my cousin again. We got home somehow and then called 911. The dream ended with us trying to recall everything that happened in the ambulance. My cousin was stabbed in an abandoned railway station. Do you have any idea what this could mean? I’m scared. My cousin’s going through a lot right now.
