I was at my nans old house, with my nan who has passed in my my waking life. I was with my family but they were young, like it was when we used to go to my nans house. We was all watching TV and I was making a cup of tea for everyone, me and my auntie where looking for something, but I don’t know what? I kept seeing a leopard print lighter on the floor in the kitchen and saying to myself that I need to pick that up because I liked it. My auntie showed me and cream and asked me if I gave this to Nan when she died, and I said to her that she wasn’t dead, she’s alive here with us now. She said oh yea! I then started to remember in my dream when my Nan was getting critically ill she couldn’t really walk and was forgetting things all the things that actually happened in my waking life and how amazing it was that she was now back to her normal self in the dream with me. My Nan didn’t talk to me directly, she was just there handing out sandwiches like she used too. My son was in the dream too along with my cousins little boy who’s the same age as my son 3 years old and I was jokingly asking him to make me a cup of tea. He was laughing telling me no.

Baby Doll


A heavy rain, a squall, a monsoon even in the evening I’m getting carried up and away by the violent gusts I’m with my family, my father, mother and my infantile younger brother to be exact My father’s taking on a role of a stranger, and he truly does seem like he’s seeing the rest of us as one as we stay over at a middle aged couple’s house The host family, my younger brother and I get a bath in their house, the kind where you’d get in the tub together My younger brother pees in the bathroom while everyone else is in there We try to scoop out the pee water with the bath bucket and I have him just go away to the other room I’m stressing over how this would give the host family a bad impression while they try to take it lightly to no real avail The scene changes and now I’m flying over some traditional Japanese rural manor houses along some pristine flat river in the dusk It looks to be some kind of a riverside town, think Kawagoe or Mito There’s some random man, a snarky one accompanying my journey now So now the current number is actually another group of strangers who’s here to stay for their visit(like in murder mystery), myself, my younger brother and a looming, and unseen presence of my father Due to the frustrations with his incontinence in the bath again my patience runs out And I kill my younger brother on the first day of my stay here at this old decrepit but tasteful Japanese mansion by bashing his soft skull in and drowning him in the tub Soon as the blood stains the waters I start scooping them out, carrying my brother who, for some reasons are starting to resemble my mother and are rapidly shrinking and drying up like a cadaver in my hands, in a cloth as I go out to the large slopy home garden area cut out of the wild mountains to bury him there I come back with a dirt-stained baby doll wrapped around the blood-stained and washed orange towel in his place I keep myself shut in the house’s bedroom where I’m assigned, being paranoid that they’ll find out as they while away in the dining hall

I dreamed that my roommates bedroom light was on but in reality she's not home. Also her room was not in the same location as it is in reality. It was in a different location but right next to her real location. From that part of the dream I dreamed at my brother and sister-in-law had been visiting and they were leaving and there were at least three other people leaving with them that I did not recognize. My sister-in-law in real life doesn't really care for me but in the dream she had turned around and was walking the wrong direction and my brother said Debbye you're going the wrong way and she turned around to go the right way but stopped and gave me a hug.

I was at my family's cottage, which has since been sold to a new family. This is a cottage that is beautiful, big, and I was always so proud of it. My grandpa built it and before that he had bought the land and he and my family would go there camping in a trailer. Then eventually they built the cottage, in the 80s or something. It was always in my life, I have so many memories of the cottage and of being there with my grandparents, bringing friends out, swimming, paddleboarding, canoeing, everything. It was incredible. In this dream, it was just a normal family holiday with everyone there. Even my grandpa. Someone was able to find the cottage on a rental website and we rented it for a family holiday. When we told them our last name and that my Grandpa built the cottage, they rented it to us for either free or a major discount. My grandpa was younger, he looked how he did when I was in my early teens. Still an older man/senior, but well and fit enough to still be active. I had my dogs and Cory there and was so happy to have them experience a family event at the cottage. It was fall and the leaves were beautiful. We went on a family walk to blueberry mountain. It was all so serene and lovely. It felt safe and happy. I don't remember there being any drama or fighting. My grandma was also younger and she was making food and it was so good. I remember smelling pie and joking with my aunt and Grampa about getting a bigger slice than them. We had a fire at night and we were all having wine, which was interesting because my grandparents don't drink. The next morning when I woke up, I was there alone, in one of the small bedrooms. It was a disaster and felt chaotic. I went downstairs thinking I had overslept, but nobody was there. No sign of anyone there. When I went down the stairs, I noticed things looked different. It was rundown and trashy looking. I thought maybe that was the new owners style, but then I realized that it was all falling apart. I ran to the basement and started digging through boxes that were my families and for some reason were still at the cottage, despite it now being owned by someone else. I was pulling out different things from the boxes. Tackle, a shirt, pictures, letters. It was random stuff but the box never ended. I went out of the sliding glass door in the basement, which is under the main level wrap around deck. I could hear people walking on the deck, so I ran around up the hill to get up to the deck. And there was nobody there. I went back down to the basement under the deck and again, could hear people. It was my family. I could hear my dogs even. I was shouting for them below, trying to tap the ceiling for me/floor for them and tell them I was there. They couldn't hear me, I wasn't there for them. I went from a full family moment with everyone there, no fighting, happy, healthy, in a space that was so special to our family. To suddenly being excluded from the family, in some strange way where they couldn't see or hear me, but I couldn't see them either. We were in different realities or something. And the house was falling apart. It was gloomy and stressful feeling because the place just was crumbling around me.

I am only remembering fragments but This dream me and my family were going somewhere important. I saw how my siblings were having strong powers and I didn’t I prayed to to be stronger and out of nowhere a crystal popped out in front of me. It was red with a symbol on it but from what I could tell it provided intelligence, I showed my family and some were proud while others were a little jealous. Our parents left to go somewhere I can’t remember but me and my siblings decided to follow them so we packed everything up and then decided that we would bring the house but in order for us to do that we would need a trailer attachment so that way we can bring it with the car so I went next-door neighbors to see if they had one if we could borrow it they said no. I went back to my front porch. I saw a black car coming by I felt an eerieness of death and fear from it I hid behind some of our cars and trash cans as it went by, but as it went by and it got even stronger and stronger so I sneakily tried to get inside the house and when I did, the car stopped just shy of the house, I peaked out the window and I saw a girl come out of it. She looked almost dead like she hadn’t eaten anything, covered in black and everything like that and she tried to do something evil to the house so with my powers, I put a force field on the house as best as I could, but as I saw her, I saw what it was and destroying everything in site force was able to protect our house just enough for her to stop her from destroying everything I took a closer look too and saw she was very happy doing this, I don’t know what happened next but I think me and her caught each other’s eyes and she went back in her car and left before I can tell my siblings about anything I woke up

My entire family hunted me down

5 May 2024



Me and my boyfriend were vacationing in Miami with my family. I remember going to these boat docks and watching the water. We saw a great white shark the size of a large whale and it was amazing. The dream was mostly just me and my boyfriend walking and scootering around Miami and having fun. We went to this small grocery mart to get a snack and as I was walking in one of the ladies at the register told me to go around the back with my scooter. So I went around the back and started to put my scooter right by the entrance to the back of the counter where all the workers are. Then one of the workers took it behind the counter and asked what my name was. I told her my name and she asked if I was from Miami, insinuating I wasn’t aware how things worked there, which I was slightly offended by. Anyways so my boyfriend and I wander around this store looking for something to eat and goofing around. The song “rock with you” by Michael Jackson comes on and he and I started to dance together. We moon walked down the isle in sync and in a line and then we did a spin and I slid across the floor on my knees while playing the air guitar. It was epic. Then we talked about how much we want to live together. It was a very sweet dream regarding my boyfriend.

I had a dream that I was at a large family function at some kind of church and there was a lot of people there. We have a lot of people in our family. a couple that was there may be a cousin or something like that, had six babies. Her and her husband ended up getting into a fight and both of them stormed off without taking the babies. Well for some reason I ended up having to take care of them. It was a nightmare, I never had any children in life so having to take care of six babies in diapers was chaos! the minute I got one changed and fed, there was another one that was crying that needed changed and fed and it seemed to go on and on all night long.

i was coming back from vacation with my aunt and her kids, we went over to mawmaw and papas old house. we kept slowing down in front of every place in the neighborhood that was apart of our childhood, seemed kind weird but okay. like the rock and lamppost, the big rock we used to write our names on them, but the rock had names scratched off of them for some reason. we pulled up to mawmaw and papas house in the driveway, and the garage door was open, but the door to the house wasn’t for some reason which is unusual. everyone got out of the car, and went to go inside, and i opened the trunk to unload everyone’s stuff. there was only one small suitcase, it was lavender colored. i pulled it out, and mawmaw and papa were greeting the kids. i stayed in the trunk kinda like i was crawling in there for a minute, and listened to their conversation. mawmaw: hey guys! i missed you!! the kids: we missed you too! we got you guys something! mawmaw: is that so? the kids: yes! papa: you guys must be hungry! my aunt: yes we are! i was just about to ask if you guys could make us something? papa: don’t you have money? my aunt: yes, but we are kinda broke now from vacation lol papa: well, how about a pizza and some chicken nuggets? my aunt: that sounds good! papa: well here instead, here’s $11 for each of you. go to the store and get you guys whatever you want. my aunt: okay! we then got back into the car and went to this weird looking corner store. the front looked a little sketchy, the sidewalk was all cracked and had huge holes, but the whole sidewalk and porch was covered by the roof. i fell trying to walk up the sidewalk at least twice. anyways inside was a very small space, but there was creaky wooden floors, with shelves at the front on both sides of the store, selling what looked like mini mirrors for doing makeup, then a bunch of deli freezers on both sides to the back. at the back of the store was a bar, but there was a gaming session going on. behind the bar, you could see into the ‘kitchen’, it looked like a house built onto the side of this place, so you could see the living room and everything of the other house, but it’s got white lighting. i kept creeping around the bar trying to look at the menu, but i didn’t wanna be too obvious about it because i didn’t wanna play the minecraft game they were playing. so i kept circling around the store, trying to find other things to eat that was less than $11. the kids and my aunt had already found what they wanted, most of what the store had was turkey sandwiches, chips and pop, but they were satisfied. i wanted a chicken bacon ranch sub or sandwich, i was determined to find one. i circled back to the bar, and was trying to look like i was doing something as i was reading the menu, there was 5 t.v screens above the bar, supposedly being their menu, but each one only had a few words on it. i couldn’t read what they said. i saw both men on both sides holding them mirrors that i saw up front, it had mouses attached to them so they can look around in game. i saw the guy behind the bar say “yeah that’s what i’m talking about! high five!” and they both high fived. the guy sitting on the stools them got up and left since he finished the game. the guy behind the bar noticed me and said “hey prettt girl, wanna play?” i said “no thanks..! i’m just trying to fi-“. he interrupts me mid sentence and pulls me to the stool. he said “i think you’d like this game. here! these are the controls and here’s your mouse. it’s parkour, but teamed parkour.”. i said “…. okay..”. i was very uncomfortable because i didn’t like the way this man kept looking at me, and i didn’t like how he kept hitting on me either, because 1. i’m a lesbian and 2. this man was old enough to be my dad. i tried to play the minecraft game with him, but i kept falling. my youngest cousin came up to me and was asking something that i dont remember, but i said “what time are we leaving?” and he said “11.”. i said “okay, ill be there soon”. i continued the game for a few more minutes and just put the game down, and said “okay i think im done for now, i should really go.”. the man said “okay. just come on by when you’re ready for more!” and he gave me the creepiest face to me after, it was so uncomfortable. it was like a face men make when they wanna take advantage of you, if you know what i mean. i quickly left to the front of the store, where my cousins and aunt were waiting. i checked one last time to see if there was anything i wanted to eat, because i was starving. my aunt said “you guys read to go?”. all the kids said “yeah!”. as we started hearing out the door, i grabbed a random sandwich and left the money there as payment. i remember walking down the stairs, and when i got to the bottom, i fell again, bounced a few times and slid a couple feet down the sidewalk on my stomach. my cousins were laughing but then checking up to make sure i was okay, and i got back up and kept going like nothing happened.

I was dreaming about a family living out the very last days on earth. They were saying goodbye to their home and boarding a spaceship that would take them to a planet around another stat to continue life - hopefully. They lived in a large rather nice home with all the same technwe have today - this wasn't the distant future. Finally it was time and they walked out of their home. They left the lights on and everything - no point I. Conserving energy in the world's last days. "Don't look the door" the mom said, as they headed to the launch facility. "If anyone wants this, they're welcome ro it" as they walked away from their home and the earth and everything they knew one of them began to weep from gratitude. "I can't believe we were chosen. This new world will have infinite resources, no polition. It will be a totally new beginning. We get to start over while the last people here will eventually suffocate and die. There was no commotion as they left, no one protested everyone was content with their tvs and movies and games and phones, distracted from their inevitable end. As this family left though, a thought occurred to me. One family, on a new world, that is not enough to start over.
