🧭 Direction


Consider the state of the city in your dream. Is it bustling with activity or abandoned and desolate? This can give insight into your current state of mind and emotions. If you feel overwhelmed, take a step back and prioritize self-care. If you feel a desire for connection, reach out to loved ones or join a social group. If you feel a need for change, explore new opportunities and experiences.

❤️ Feelings

The dream of a city can evoke a sense of excitement and adventure. It may symbolize the desire for exploration and new experiences. The bustling streets and towering buildings can create a feeling of being part of something bigger. However, it can also bring about feelings of overwhelm or anonymity, as the city represents a fast-paced and impersonal environment. The dream may reflect a longing for connection or a need to find one's place in the world. Overall, the dream of a city can elicit a mix of emotions, ranging from curiosity and wonder to unease and longing.

I was in the city and walking around apartments when two skeptical men who were sex traffickers walked around the apartment and surveying for other individuals to interfere with their business. I was spotted by them. Soon after, they met up with their prostitute that they had an appointment with. One of the men took a photo of me and asked the prostitute if she knew me. He did this to make sure that I wouldn’t intervene or mess up their appointment or bring justice. The prostitute said she had never seen me before. The environment was a really rundown and poor environment. The prostitute was a very young Hispanic woman, maybe in her late teens probably 17 years old. After the men discovered that I wasn’t a resident one of the men got in their truck to pursue me and brought a shotgun. I was riding a bicycle at the time down the street trying to avoid conflict. The truck drove crazily towards me. The man in the truck pulled up beside me with his window down and a shotgun point at me while it hung outside the truck. He said, “I have some questions for you.” But I knew his full intention. He was going to kill me no matter what. Somehow, I shotgun randomly appeared in my hands and then started to shoot at him. He held his gun fire and kept saying, “I just have some questions for you.” But I still knew his intention, he was waiting for me to get close then he was going to shoot me. Then I kept shooting at him and trying to escape. I hit him several times but he wouldn’t die and he became unscathed from the shotgun blasts. He shot at me but I managed to dodge his bullets. He wrecked his truck and had to get out. I kept shooting at him and I made contact and hit him but he kept pursuing me while getting hit by my bullets. He stopped his truck and got out then I kept shooting at him but he wouldn’t die or get harmed. He ran up to me and got a knife and managed to cut my cheek and was still unharmed by my shotgun bullets. Then I tried to run away and then I woke up as I was running away. The man never died and in the dream I felt like I was being pursued relentlessly.

It was night and was in a city full of tall buildings and I was in a special force squad roaming the city to exterminate "goules" that were occupying some buildings. We have heard noise in one of the buildings we were passing by and went inside to further investigate. As we moved forward the noise was getting more and more heard and then a Goule jumped out of tue room to start chassing us and we ooened fire. The shooting had alerted all the other Goules in the building and they were coming from all directions. Our Squad found an escape route by jumping down the window with our grappling hooks and I was the last one to escape. As I was the one giving cover for the others to escape it became too crowded and if I stopped shooting I wouldn't make it to the window. I decided to turn tail while shooting in front of me to get down the stairs. I've ran out of bullets and ran right into the Goules pushing them and brawling my way through. I made it through them and continued running and reached the stairs, but had many floors to go through while being chased by these monsters. My heart was racing and freaking out as I was alone against so many but I knew that if I could cross the exit door my squad would save me and get out of this mess. Once at the bottom floor the exit was jam packed with all of those monsters and they all noticed me. The ones up stairs are catching up and I don't have my gun anymore and tried to find a room with a window and alert my squad. When I found the room I jumped out the window but got caught by a Goule but also had a member of my squad trying to pull me out and then I woke up.

i was i think in an anglosaxon city. i entered a tiny shop that sells amazing outfits. the two women that worked there didn’t speak english, one spanish and one italian, so i managed to understand them (because i’m actually italian). they kept bringing me dresses that i didn’t like at all (before i asked them to show me something green because it’s my favourite colour). i was almost overwhelmed by all the thing they were trying to show me

so i was like in a weird city and then someone suggested a quiet place where no one can hear you to skateboard or and so i accepted and the i found this lever thingy that opens something and i go in it and its the same place but other people and going to the one that i was just in. then i remember being with mommy and berry and we were like in these small dangling houses and we kept going through these houses and there was like these places like right next the the dangling houses and it was like shops so we could eat and so we went from one house to another idk how but we did and there was also other people doing this and we finally were to our destination or smth and i saw this tiktok girl with her dog and she in her swim suit and she was holding on to this nonmoving rope to go in the lake and where it dripped it was shallow so she dropped and her dog like lost some of his hair and where it was scraped of there was a scar and the girl was so chill abt it everyone else was except for me then it was my turn and it was fine. then when we were back in the houses my mom was on the boardwalk next to the houses but not in them and she went over to these people and then they game me a weird look and then my mom came back then i went over there and i past them and i started flying and it was so cool there were platforms so i could jump off but them i remember that i really wanted to stop flying but i wasn’t in very much control so j was really scared that j would be separated from them and also scared that i might land somewhere that j will be hurt and then u finally stopped and came back and everyone was like amazed at me bc i was flying but i was really scared and that was it also the houses were all going to the rope jump off thing and it was like a loop you couldn’t go anywhere else same with the um non hearing tunnel.

It’s hard to describe, but this week I have been having dreams that seem to correlate with one another. They are not scary or negative in any way, but they feel similar to one another in a positive way. The only way I can remember what goes on in my dreams is to remember the feeling it gave me and usually certain imagery will pop up in my memory as if i was experiencing a real life memory. Here’s a list of things that I do recall: - a city/town that I feel familiar with but doesn’t exist in real life. - homes/houses/buildings and or stores/malls that my mind sort of made up but made it feel familiar to real life. - downtown parking garages and restrooms with plenty of stalls. - motel/apartment type of building where I meet people I’ve never met in real life. - transportation such as: cars, trains, walking, running, gliding/flying, and planes. - bridges that go miles to a theme park. - cities with restaurants, malls, theatres and more. - sometimes I will dream about a place that I have worked at and that I am on the clock for my shift as well, but I feel free to leave whenever I please. - lastly, I will usually travel to a quiet town in a really pretty foothill landscape with cottage style homes.
