Key
Three People

Dream

I dreamt I killed three men, i didn't know why i did it but i knew that by taking those people's lives away i had thrown away my own life and my future, i felt immense guilt and shame and i truly couldn't understand why i'd done it. i revived the men and brought them back to life yet i still felt the need to turn myself into the police because i figured they'd already be coming for me soon. i was covered in blood the entire time and no matter how hard i tried i couldn't wash it away. i had no malice in my heart when i'd slain the three men, a part of me felt like i did it out of self preservation or defense and the men knew this as well so they said they would stand trial with me as my witnesses to plea for my freedom and forgiveness. but i knew my life was over and i wasn't sure i deserved to be forgiven anyways. i thought i'd be lucky if they only decided to put me away in a mental institution rather than a prison, but in order to be able to have the men stand as my witnesses i had to overcome many obstacles to obtain a key to unlock a chest containing a security camera footage. the obstacles nearly killed me and i lost two of my witnesses along the way so i knew that their disappearances would be blamed on me and i would certainly be put to jail

House
Key
Orange
Party

Dream

I was in some kind of party, with alot of people most of whom were women I knew, like my mom, my school's principal, some of my teachers. I particularly remember the principal applauding me for something and then leaving for the "main show" with a basket on her head, just like all the other women. One of them, Kalliopi was her name, who wore an orange dress, was for some reason and in some way familiar, though I had never seen her before. When I went to do my duties for the "main show" too, I went from another entrance and ended up in my house. It was like a screenshot of my house in the waking world, but with no people. I saw a key on the desk. For some reason, I knew that this might be the first, but it's not the last key, as I need to find exactly 6 more. I had found 1 already, and I also knew that there was another inside one of the drawers. There was. Then my dad appeared all of a sudden, and my first guess was that he followed me. We didn't talk much, but we found a strange phone-like device which had a cool look and was filled with numbers. We figured it contains yet another key, so we tried some codes that might be required to open it. Really, my dad tried them all. Most of those codes looked odd to me, because, although they were numbers, the screen above them could clearly form a message with letters. I remember reading the messages and thinking to myself that it's weird, but nothing more than that. We did manage to get the key out of the device and then I remember nothing but that I was alone again and I knew that I had all the keys. I'm not sure what happened after that, but I probably used all the keys to the door in front of me, and one of them was the right one. Then, thinking that this was some kind of maze set up as a joke, i proudly walked out, only to find myself inside the same room. The only difference, was that there was something, an object, so weird-looking I don't even know how to describe it to you. What most mattered, was that it was white, but had an orange light (or glow) everywhere on it. I then remembered the woman in the orange dress and knew that she had set this all up as a trap for me. I had no idea why. I woke up after that.

Key

Dream

I had a dream I was on this big alien ship. The inside kinda resemble what I assume a large alien mall would look like. Yet very clean. There were plants and stuff growing normally on board too. Anyways this lady with bright red (super) curly hair dropped me off on earth saying I must save god. This was either the beginning or end times of earth. I’m not sure but earth looked like a frozen tundra with visible blue like energy flowing between the snow blanketed trees. It was Ethereal. I’m not gonna lie to you dream notes, I kinda wish I could see it irl. It was so pretty yet kinda spooky cause there weren’t any creatures seeming to inhabit the plant. I felt things there but very few in my witchy perception. In the very center of there earth, I found a white glowing coffin where I assumed god layed. I didn’t actually see his face but I knew instinctively what he looked like. His hair was Snow White and quite long. Not like a girls hair but definitely longer giving him an elf like effect. Very tall and slender I think. A guy. The coffin was locked and I needed to find the key yet I had no idea where to look or if that’s even what I was supposed to do. There was this massive hellhound guarding him though. The beast was kinda scary and growly but as soon as I approached the coffin it layed at my feet all cute like. What a confusing creature. I remember thinking “You should really make up your mind if u wanna eat or cuddle” The silly thing got me a stick and had me throw it for him 💀it was pretty wholesome tho. The massive black creepy dog bounding toward me with a mini stick in its mouth. Its head was like the size of my body. I remember the lady said only I could save him, Only I had the key but I just could not figure out what that was supposed to mean? Earth had looked like a frozen grave yard in the dream.

I had a dream I was with my wife in an old creepy house. She was sitting in a chair and I was standing . To our right there was two women who were tied together. There was a creepy man who I could not to see but was there. He went to women and said he would electrocute them. He then did and they collapsed onto the floor. I escaped into the kitchen however there was a pack of fierce dogs that were barking and biting my feet and legs. I managed to escape into the garden and my wife was back with me. The garden was big and there were two ladies with dogs and the ladies just stared at me. There was a large space between me and my wife and I shouted at her that I’d always wanted to slit her throat. I ran at her and hit her in the neck with a key. She hit me back. We then back in the house and the electrocuted ladies were gone and I could sense the man was not there so we escaped, we were running down a hill and crossed over a road, we were then running up a hill and got to a car. My daughter was there and there was a car I used to own, we needed to escape but my wife would not get in the car. I sat in the front and she finally sat in the back. My daughter was driving but the car would not start, a van pulled up beside us and dropped off some sand. The car eventually started and we got away.

Dream

I find myself in the house of the man who molested me. I walk through the house and down the stairs to the room where many of the molestations occured. I open the door to find a 6 year old version of me in a cage that's on a bed. That's the age I was first molested. The bed is the one I was molested on. The 6 year old version of me is visibly upset. Next to the bed is a radio that is playing a song about never growing old. The lyrics go "you will never grow old, never grow, old, because of me you will stay young forever and never grow old". The voice on the song is the voice of my molester. I search desperately for a key to open the cage. Then I hear the upstairs door open and see and hear my molesters voice. His foot steps get closer and closer to the room. I search for the key and find it in my hand. I open the cage and escape through a window with 6 year old me. We run into the police and my molester is arrested.

Dream

The elevator opened to my hotel room and revealed my cousin. I asked what took you so long while I was laughing with my other cousin, his brother. SOMEONE else is trying to find their room. I looked into the elevator and next to him was a creepy old man in a wheelchair. He gave me the heebie-jeebie. My cousin said "I have one more bag to get, I'll be back. He put down what he had and got back on the elevator. I was appalled that he got back on the the elevator with that creepy old man! I told my other cousin that I wanted to lock all the doors. I didn't like that people could just enter our room through the elevator. He will be alright right? He has a key. But not to the chain lock that I was setting. I unlocked all the doors again and decided I would just lock it immediately when he got back. When the elevator opened my cousin was back but so was the old man. Why was he still in the elevator???? My cousin got off and bid the old man farewell. The old man said nothing, he just looked up and gave a gremecing smile. The elevator door closed. But we could see the elevator moving. When the elevator stopped, all three of us looked up through the crack in the elevator and saw the old man roll off into the floor a few floors above us.

Key

Dream

Okay, so it starts with me working at a job, and I get in trouble for using the employee bathroom instead of the Porter John. It's a construction site. I get dragged in front of HR, I'm being interrogated, and I'm freaking out because I'm pretty sure I'm going to get fired. Then I get transported to this tower, which is on another part of the construction site. It's open concept, everybody's there for some type of meeting, and there's an issue with the crane. It's about to knock over the tower, so the HR person calls out to me. I recognize it. I get everybody out of that meeting, out of the tower safely. The tower collapses, and I'm rewarded for my service by not being fired. I'm driving home from the job site of that tower, and for some reason something happens with my car, the tire's messed up, I have to try to MacGyver it, but I don't have the tools that I need. But I remember there's tools and a tire at Joe's house, which is conveniently where I'm stopped at. So I use my key for whatever reason, because I gave up my key a long time ago. I use my key to get into his house, and him and his girlfriend conveniently come up right behind me, and she's all bent out of shape, and he's over here trying to calm her down. But he asks me, hey, what's going on? And I told him how I needed something for the car, and tools and I would be out of his hair in no time. He's like, oh. And he turns to his new girlfriend, tells her to chill out and calm down, and then tells her to go and order their food. And she walks past me and kind of like hits me, and I tell her, you didn't have to hit me, bitch. And she apologizes.
