    Usually when I have an amazing dream that doesn't drift from my mind when I wake up I start up a story about it, so a few nights ago I had an amazing dream and I had it again last night. It won't go away, it keeps crawling through the tunnels of mind, so I tried to write it out, but I couldn't get past a few words, I feel guilty really guiltry and also kind of stupid, and foolish for thinking about writing this dream, but it won't leave me alone! I don't know what to do! The dream is continuously played out in my mind, I'm thinking about it all the time, but I can't write it. :(

    Wow, I don't remember having the same dream twice. Then again, I normally do not remember my dreams. Maybe you'll get to dream it again tonight. Hopefully you'll be able to write it down. Good luck!:)

    What ended up happening is last night I wrote many, many poems about it, and I feel very much at peace with the situation and proud of what I ended up writing!

    I wish I had cool dreams like that. Usually my dreams (the ones I can remember anyway) consist of me doing something stupid in front of people I know and either getting laughed at or feeling embarassed. I wonder what that could mean?
  7. Lately I have been writing alot and am finding that my best stories usually involve symbolism forming(from) my dreams, and crossed over interpretations.

    Definately that's why I love dreams so much, they're not hard to figure out really, especially if you start to write about it, you really start to understand how they work, at least for me anyway.
  9. Aye. Feeling fortunate to have met someone online that is good at finding knowledge to heal the psyche through dreams. He's over at SOREX(a board hosted through ezboard.com). Even intensely abstract ones. yay. hehehe.

    Dreams are the subconscious answers to questions our conscious minds haven't yet learned to ask.

    Keep a loaded shotgun by the side of your bed. The next time your dream shows up, blow it away. This also works on television sets, bill collectors, the neighbor's dog, you name it. Just don't say Dirtydog said it was all right.

    Obviously I wasn't serious. I'm a dog owner and very protective of dogs. Who is Ed Norton? As for Brad Pitt, you mean one of his characters getting killed on screen? I don't know the details.

    yeah it's from a movie everyone should see. obviously i wasn't being serious either. i was just pondering how to kill a dream. more of an existential joke than a serious question. But anyways "Fight Club" put it at the top of you're Netflix Queue or whatever. It's kind of a mindfuck.

    There is an exception to every rule, including this one.

    Sound like your subconcious mind has an important message for you to know...
    pay attention and write all you can about the dream, and get a dream dictionary. Sometime's images in a dream are actually metaphors trying to get a message to you. Things don't always mean what they're showing you in the dream... for example, death doesn't mean death, it means change...
    Other than that, I've gotten out of bed and started writing directly from a thought or a dream and have created many stories, poems, and even a whole novel from them.
    Peace everyone
