Default Recurring dream

Since a lot of threads come up asking about people's dreams, does anybody ever have, or ever had recurring dreams? If so, please share if you don't mind.

A lot of the ones I've had through out my life are a little personal. There is one I have often about my father. In the dreams I get into really big arguments with him. Which I never do in real life, I WANT to, but I don't and usually just hold in all in. There is one I get a little less often and haven't had in a while, but I didn't learn to drive until a little later unlike most teenagers, but ever since I was in my early teens, probably pre-teens, I had dreams about being in a car (sometimes by myself, sometimes with one or both of my siblings) usually the car doesn't have doors on it, and it's night time, I (or we) are the only one(s) in the car and I'm forced to drive it, and I'm really scared during it. I can drive better now, but now I have like evolved versions of that dream. Now, driving in dreams is similar to running in dreams. Has anybody ever had that when you try to run in a dream, and you just can't. Like you're trying your hardest, but you're not really going much and you feel like you're going to fall over or something. That's what driving is kinda like now, it's like it just doesn't work. And there is one I used to get when I was a kid. I don't get it anymore, but when I was really young, it was a scary falling dream. I always used to have this dream that I would be standing at the top of the staircase in our house, and I would jump off the top of the staircase and down all the steps. I would always wake up when I was about 2/3 of the way down.

There is others I have sometimes but these are just a few off the top of my head.

A common dream I have is getting into very heated arguments with family. Then running away, but in the dream, the farther away from home I get the more difficult it gets to run. Kind of like trying to run in water.

But one I had as a kid was where I befriended some T-Rex's in a dark cave and they had sunglasses on. I had to teach them to swim and we would swim out of the cave to a big party on the outside where everyone was playing darts. I probably had it about once a week for around 2-3 years.

I often have dreams in which I am persued by zombies, or my Dad is beating the **** out of me.

The only dreams that really recur for me would be



Avatar-related ones are semi-recurring, I guess, but that's more a subject than a specific dream. There's one specific Avatar dream I've had a few times, but not really enough to be recurring.

If recurring means exactly identical, I've had none like that or so few that I can't remember them. Often times though, my dreams will start in the same way but end differently, because I usually always remember that I've been there before.

Yeah that's messed up about dreaming about being in school. Once in a while I have a dream that takes place with me being in school. It's weird. I feel weird about it when I wake up.

I too used to have recurring nightmares about school much like the one had by HNM, YEARS after I had graduated. Or stocking endless shelves (I was a stock clerk for a few years) Lately I've been waking up remembering snippets of dreams about being at the Siatll meetup. A recurring dream I used to have was of flying, but being unable to demonstrate the ability to my family, who stood around me scoffing as I flapped my arms like an idiot. (They aren'tscoffing any more, I fly ultralight airplanes!)

I've been out of college for almost 12 years and I still have occasional nightmares like HNM's, only mine tend to center around high school. A couple of times, I woke up *screaming* from these nightmares.

The dreams I've had about school I wouldn't call nightmares. Just weird dreams about still being in school.

well the exam one is definitely a winner of recurring dreams - so many people were stressed out about them at school that it is quite typical that this dream repeats many years later. My case would be something in between: not exactly a nightmare neither "just a weird" feeling; but I am hugely relieved when I wake up from those!

I have several "themes" in recurring dreams: one has to do with the parents (mostly mother) catching me "redhanded". Not that they had really ever caught me at some criminal activity, but criticism & excessive demands were the name of the game, no matter what I did I "could have always done better"- so that's also rather normal that a RL situation soaked into the subconsciousness & started to come out in a dream shape. The dream evolution was curious though: for many years, in such a dream I would be panicky & trying to justify myself, then just about a year ago it changed to: "Yeah, yeah, whatever you say" - & as soon as they turn their backs I am off to do "my thing". Some months ago my dream reaction changed again: now I stick my chest out, put the fists on my hips & say: "Yes, you see what you see - and it's my choice & my decision, I am an adult!" Sometimes it takes a looooooong time to "stand up for one's rights" when parents are concerned! (Layzie, maybe you could use this tactic with your father? Not a screaming match (unless you're willing), but you are an adult and you are taking your decisions. Sorry if it's private but you mentioned it in the OP & I was just wondering.)

The other recurrent dream is similar to Titanic: an imminent catastrophy with little time to escape - altho it's good to have at least some minutes & we're trying to make the best job of the worst. I am usually in a building with some people; it is about to collapse due to an earthquake or a terrorist attack, & we run like hell getting confused in long corridors & stairs. Usually, there are some "baddies" on our "tails" too, so we're talking double danger. Again, usually, we manage to escape & end up at a train / bus station: i.e. got away - & have the means to get even further away. Good, altho it's a lot of scare while the dream lasts. Sometimes I wake up before the escape though by using a "magic formula": "I don't like this dream, 1-2-3, I wake up, out, out, out!" And whoosh! I am in RL.

And the best are "knowledge dreams" with a scenario very similar to this Sylwanin Dream. The characters of knowledge vary, the two regulars are Purple Girl (her picture is in my albums) & my Na'vi instructor: very wry, very "to the point", & with an infinite amount of patience. Otherwise he would have given up on me long, long ago!

that's pretty cool I have flying dreams but I know I have to land & walk "as a normal person" when entering my parents house, & that I shouldn't talk to them about being able to fly... they won't understand.
