I don't know where to turn my dreams are scaring me

Rate this Entry
It's not that they are nightmares; they aren't. They are recurring with the same theme. I think my subconscious is trying to tell me something; but what???
There are two types; one is the ocean keep surging over the road I need to travel on. And the other is distorted bridges I have to cross. Last night was really scary in that the ocean surged over the bridge to the mainland and we were trapped on the island. People acted like lemmings and waded through the water to another island - smaller but closer to the main land. I thought that's stupid it will go under sooner.

I know there has to be a subconscious meaning here; be ause they are recurring. They are happening a lot lately. Any ideas? Anyone?

    Okay, without consulting a dream site, i'll just wing it and explain how I see it.
    In both dreams, you are travelling on a path when something happens to make the travel either harder, or impossible. If you think of the path like your life, then it could be that you're facing unresolved issues with accepting something that has made your life harder, or maybe something that you feel (Even subconsciously) that has stopped your life short.
    Now, consulting a dream dictionary... A bridge signifies an important decision or a critical junction in your life.

    "Bridges represent a transitional period in your life where you will be moving on to a new stage. If the bridge is over water, then it suggests that your transition will be an emotional one. If you fall off the bridge and into the water, then the dream indicates that you are letting your emotions hold you back and prevent you from moving forward. Alternatively, the bridge may indicate that you are trying to "bridge" or connect two things together"
    "To dream of a run-down bridge indicates that you should not contemplate any major changes in your life at this time.
    To see a bridge collapse in your dream implies that you have let an important opportunity pass you by."

    I'm not sure if any of that speaks to you, but I hope it does.

    "To dream that you are stranded on an island suggests that you need to get away from the demands of your daily life. Or perhaps you are running away from a situation instead of trying to confront it. Alternatively, the dream means that you feel cut off from society. You are in a rut and do not know what to do with your life"

    Sorry, most of that was just copied from this website:
    and I'll bet that really didn't make much sense... but hopefully you understood it.

    Best of luck with your dreams... I myself have had pretty chronic nightmares/bad dreams, so I know how draining it can be. I hope it gets better for you.

    I, too, have horrific nightmares (sleep disturbances as my doctors like to call them). My doctors attribute mine to my Fibromyalgia (it is a common symptom of FM). As such, I have to take something to help me go into a deep sleep. If I do not, I suffer from the nightmares. My nightmares are also recurring (there are two specific ones that occur over and over again). I love Elo's interpretation of yours
    Perhaps you should mention your sleep issues to your doctors as your sleep disturbances could be a symptom of your underlying illness and there may be something that they can do to help you.
    I wish you the very best.
