Building (Place)


Running into a circled arena attached to the outside of a housing building, Surrounded by doors each with 1 camera attached to them. Bees begin to swarm around me because every camera had a beehive attached to it. I attempted to run into one of the doors to escape the bees but the boy I love closed the door in my face, so I had to keep running. I ran for a while while dancing at the same time, while a song called Fool for you by snoh aalegra played in the background. I began to get tired of running then I began to wonder if the bees were possibly friendly and maybe i was just being paranoid. I stopped running and one of the bees landed on me and crawled down my back, which shook me awake while i tried to get it off of me

Video Game


I dreamed I was in a zombie apocalypse. Trying to stay away from the infected. There are cars but I can’t get into all of them. I was constantly surrounded my zombies or people who might become zombies. There was literally no escape. Then I figured I could pause my dream like it was a video game. So when I tried to quit or stop the game it felt like I was in I was stuck there and couldn’t make it stop.

My crush


I woke up do go to a school trip a bit stressed to be late. We were in like a camp, there were people I knew from high school and university. I kept being close to my old school crush. Which is now a friend. People from university dragged me into doing a project, but in involved animal cruelty so I was so angry but no one listened to me. I wasn’t being heard at all, someone came to arrest us for doing so. And I was in the side of the mean people despite me. The camp became an inflatable castle surrounded my water in which I swam. We played and disobeyed in the cafeteria. I saw my ex there and that made me sad. Two friends who were best friends were pregnant at the same time. It made me cry from happiness. I was naked, and I saw my psychologist selling swimsuits. Thanks to her I could dress myself. I forgot my security blanket in the castle.

New Job


I had a dream that I was talking to this boy about 17/18 he was telling me he was going to start school or he was going to go find a job but he said “apparently I have a gift” but he was apprehensive about how people would see him. And I explained to him that Pluto leaving Capricorn and moving into Aquarius meant that everything that was considered weird like channeling and tarot/divination is becoming more understood more common that it’s the true connection that we’re all becoming more aware of. He seemed like a really awesome person. While I was talking to him for some reason my kids grandpa on their dad’s side was sitting behind me as if we were in a class session and there were other students as well. He came to apologize to me and I apologized to him. I never wanted to hurt anyone I said I just didn’t want to be hurt anymore. We all walked out of class which seemed to be in a posh neighborhood. The view from the street was unlike anything I had ever seen. We were instantly immersed into some magical paradise somewhere in another country green mossy rocks surrounded the landscape and big mountains and creeks with waterfalls. In another part of my dream I had I was talking with my wife and I was writing on a laptop to this Russian tarot reader Slavic on YouTube We were conversing back and forth and I looked up at my wife and Slavic was sitting next to her I could see her I was startled by her but extremely surprised and excited because I could astral travel and my psychic mediumship had finally come to fruition. I new in that moment I could see spirit and it was so beautiful I cried I told my wife I can see her she is sitting next to you and she can see me Slavic and I talked and then she was fading in and out for a while but I then saw her again. It was as if we were FaceTiming but in spirit. I felt as though it was one of the most important and beautiful things to be granted to me. To be a real medium. I felt very content and happy to be able to see her and to share this with my wife who is very special and understanding about all of this stuff that happened.

I went to the grocery store to get ice cream sandwiches. I got to the grocery store and started walking down the frozen section. As I was walking down the aisle I started to see the ice cream and just window shopped for a moment. Every door was passing the ice cream started looking more amazing then I started to see the ice cream sandwiches so I started window shopping that. Each door I pass by started changing to what looked like an ice cream store, bucket of ice cream just in the window. Everything is different swirls of colors, then when I looked around I was no longer in the grocery store I was just in a place surrounded by different types of ice cream sandwiches.

I was surrounded by these black people who weren't respecting me and when I stood up for myself they got upset. So I retaliated by taking the collar off my dog and putting it around this fat black guy’s neck and got angry at him for making me do this to him

I had a dream turned into a nightmare. In this dream, I was walking in a peculiar supermarket with my mom. The shelves were several hundreds of feet high filled with all kinds of colorful produce and the store itself had to be the size of five walmarts. The store itself was packed with all kinds of people rushing around to get food. I was at the front of the empty shopping cart scrolling on my phone and looking around the store. I looked back at my mom was at the back talking on her phone pushing the cart then turned my head back ahead. Shortly after I realized I couldn’t hear her anymore she wasnt pushing the cart. I looked back to see what she was doing and she was gone. I tried looking in between people to find her but when I didnt see any trace of her I started to panic. I left the cart and ran, shoved and, squeezed passed the crowd yelling for her. When I still couldn’t find any traces of her I intuitively grabbed a pack of exacto knives and ran into the frozen foods isles and searched in between the shelves inside the fridges and found her in a line of with a few other people surrounded by some men. She was kidnapped into a sex trafficking ring. I busted the door open and the crowd stopped and stared at the people behind the fridges. Suddenly I hear someone profusely apologizing from behind me. I turned around to a guy apologizing and explaining that he “just needed the money” and repeated “sorry” to me over and over. I was so full of rage I tore the three exacto knives from the packaging and yelled at him, “you’re sorry?! You’re sorry?!!” I then shoved him to the floor, straddled him, grabbed his hair and stabbed him in the face. The police came over but didnt stop me. I stabbed him and kept stabbing him even when he wasn’t moving anymore. His blood splashed everywhere and his face became unrecognizable, yet I continued to slash his face until the end of the dream. I woke up from my arm doing the stabbing motion pretty hard and a bit scared of myself.

I had a dream where I had gone back to an old nostalgic house with my mother. I started asking questions and she answered them but it was very vague. There were random doors and a dog and one cat that I've never seen before. And there would be some bears representing my mother and father. There would be dragons surrounding us and there was tension between them both. they were fighting but was surrounded by everything I want. Food, games and a new house. While they were still fighting, they were transformed into bears and it looked almost like a cartoon but my mother's words and gestures seemed serious. She seemed to be trapped and held captive, As if she was trying to leave. But she snapped and told my father she didn't want him along with how she felt. He broke down and when the cartoon atmosphere faded away, my mother broke free. She seemed to be tired and Layed down next to a window. A bear which was my dad tried to cuddle her but she had sternly told him to go away and he walked away whining. A night passed at that house and I was trying to ask questions but it seemed like they were dismissed by my mother. She was in a rush and went to work while I was left alone. The more I roamed and looked into the house, there were more mysterious things and my curiosity grew bigger. I saw my ex sleeping in a room and I saw a child with their parent. I got scared and hid for a while until my mother came home. She didn't seem to care about these people in the house and starting engaging with them. Later me and my mother went to a concert of my favorite artist and it was too silly and fun to be real. It had a cartoon vibe to it and was really fun.

Light (Not Dark)


I was sitting at a large dinner table surrounded by some childhood friends. The room around us was dark, but there were lights lighting up the table. Everyone was scared with their heads almost under the table. And the guy in front of me was wearing a girl's dress and touching himself.

Childhood home


I dreamed that I was at my childhood home… I was surrounded by children, most of them not even mine. But that we were all outside and everyone was playing. Then one child, a baby just learning how to sit up, fell over and onto its face. The baby began to cry, so I picked it up to walk it around the yard and soothe them. I then went back to where I had been because I forgot my white cane. I laughed and said, “It took me long enough, but I remembered.” I accepted my white cane as it was handed back to me and I laughed and took it with me as I took the baby inside to clean up their little face.
