    Extremely weird dream..

    Does anyone take into account the "realness" or meaning of your dreams? Usually I have I guess "normal" dreams about my life, horses, friends, different situations.. But last night I had absolutely the weirdest dream I've ever had in my life..It was one of those dreams that are so real that you can even feel what's going on in the dream..Cold, heat, being scared, real emotions..and it carries over to the next day? I mean..this dream was one for the record books but at the same time I just KNOW there was something important about the dream.. This all probably sounds extremely stupid and it's going to get even worse when you actually "hear" the dream.. So here goes..

    Soo.. I'm in like Antarctica or somewhere of that nature..Freezing but I'm looking for something, I don't know what it is yet..Looking, looking and I see it, it's a necklace lying in the snow. Like an Native American type of necklace, it's a pouch but is covered in different type of beads, lots of different colors sewn in the bag.. I don't remember what was in the pouch but I KNOW it was something important to me, the pouch held something very important and I had to keep it and hide it..So I stuff it in my jacket, which is like all Native American clothing, fringe, beads, hide.. The whole deal.. I keep walking but the ice cracks and I have to take off running so I don't fall in the water.. I fall in anyway..I wake up and there's a polar bear with two cubs sitting beside me on a ice berg or little ice island..something.. The bears are just looking at me and I'm not scared of them whatsoever..Just chillin' on this ice berg with polar bears.. then the "mama" polar bear leaves to get food for the cubs, I just knew that was what was happening..So I remember the pouch and panic thinking I had lost it but it was still there.. I feel the ice berg move and assume the mama bear is back.. Nope, nothing.. but the cubs are getting frantic and they start crawling all over me, I just KNOW something is wrong and I need to get away and off of the ice berg.. We are close enough to land that I think I can swim.. So I gather up the cubs and sneak in the water, start swimming to land..I make it and I'm putting the cubs on the shore when something grabs my legs and pulls me underwater, I panic.. All goes black.. Then I "wake up" again at my Dad's house. The vet is there and he's trying to give Nikki a shot, she's freaking out and the vet wants to like dart gun a tranquilizer so she'll calm down and we can do whatever we have to to "save" her, yes save her.. I'm freaking out and I start telling him he is NOT going to dart gun my horse..I'll try to give her the shot..My dad and some other guy had been holding me, I was crying and yelling..They let me go and I walk over to her, she calms down for me (Some guys had been holding her unsuccessfully) I go and talk her, rubbing her neck, and I try to ease around to give her a shot (In the butt?) and at first she lets me stick her and I'm injecting the medicine and she kicks the **** out of me, in the face.. and I black out and feel myself falling and people screaming.. I wake up and I'm like freaking out, sweating and breathing hard.. NO idea what any of that means but it was STRANGE.. and I remembered every single detail except what was in that pouch.

    So..I have no idea what any of that is supposed to mean, if anything.. But I still do just feel like there's something important about that pouch..Even in real life.. and that is probably the worst part..Even worse than me chillin' on an ice berg with polar bears.

    Wow.....very detailed dream there....most of the time my dreams are WEIRD. Like super wouldnt think of it in a mililon years weird...but mostly that's because I watch shows like Supernatural and stuff right before going to sleep...and I hardly ever remember dreams in detail...except one that I still remember from literally 10 yrs ago because it freaked me out so much.....


    I don't know what to tell you about your dreams...but I heard somewhere once that we have THOUSANDS of dreams that last microseconds and we only remember a few....idk haha

    Haha...are you sure you haven't read "The Clan of the Cave Bear" lately? You sound a bit like Ayla.

    If I had to guess, I would guess that the dream has a message of loneliness, as if you either long for a close relationship or companion or recently lost a close friend or companion and subconsciously feel alone.

    As to the pouch, I would guess the significance is not the pouch itself, but what is inside, and I suspect what is inside is the key to the entire dream. I also suspect what is inside the pouch is not material, but rather feelings and emotions you are protective of and are afraid they might escape, so you hold them close...in other words, your heart and spirit and feelings.

    I don't know you, but I would not be surprised if you have lost someone that was close and important to you recently - a relative or significant other that you gave of yourself freely - your heart and your feelings.

    Maybe not...I can be nutso at times - just my play on it...it could mean something totally different...

    Mmmm sounds like you're stressing over things. You accomplish one thing, just to be sucked back into another thing. Like one step forward and two steps back.

    You get the pouch - forward. You fall in the water - backward. You secure the cubs - forward. You're dragged under water - backward. You get my point. Are you going through a lot of troubles lately? Do you feel like once you get one thing accomplished, you're blind sided by something new? That's just my take on it, and I am by no means an expert. :p

    The beginning of your dream really did seem like "The Clan of the Cave Bear". I couldn't even begin to interpret it.

    I used to have a recurring dream that has since stopped coming as frequently as it did. It usually happened when I fell asleep on my couch, before I was married and living alone. And now that I'm about to type it out, I just realized it's not happened in quite a while.

    I fall asleep and at some stage, feel like I've woken up. I feel terrified inside, like there is something bad in the house that is going to kill me. I know I'm still half asleep but am paralyzed. So I try and wake myself up any way I can including throwing myself on the floor. But I can't move. So, in my dream I start screaming at the top of my lungs. Not yelling but a full blown all out shriek. I'm desperate to wake up, to have someone wake me up, but I simply cannot. And I lay there for quite a long time (more than an hour) in this state.

    Eventually I do wake up and still feel terrified.

    It has happened since I got married, but not terribly often. The first time it happened, DH told me that what came out was a whimper. Which is so surprising because in my dream...I am really screaming in abject fear. So he is now trained that when he hears me whimper, he must wake me up.

    Now that I've gone and wrote all this, I will have that dream tonight. Just my luck, DH is traveling and won't be home until Saturday!

    I haven't even heard of that book..

    But wow.. I am SHOCKED at your replies.. I mean..wow.. I'm not sure if you've seen my thread that almost turned into a diary/vent area that I could talk to everyone in but basically at the beginning of the summer my mom was put in jail, I had to move to SC and leave everything (horses included) when my aunt and I had to go to court against my mom for custody of my little sister..then my boyfriend of 6 years and I broke up with bad feelings between us.. All of that took place within a month and has drug out.. I haven't been able to move back home yet and it sucks.. I'm not able to ride.. my boyfriend and I talked about trying to work it out again about 3 weeks ago and we ended up calling it off again, I went back to that same hurt I was a few months ago.. Along with all of that I have the usual stress going on because my health problems and stress with college.. So yeah, I'd say your replies are spot on correct.. I didn't think of any of it that way..I've been just thinking about what could have been in the pouch.

    This sounds like sleep paralysis - it's when your brain wakes up before your body does. Give it a google :)

    Had another dream last night.. same Native American clothes and the pouch..I don't remember a lot of details this time. I was running through the woods this time running away from something and I had to get somewhere. I was seeing it from two views though, I was in my body AND watching myself run..I wasn't panicing like the other dream, I was confident I would make it where ever I was running but still worried about whatever I was running from..
