I keep having a dream that I always wake up, and never could go back to sleep. But it's the same events, different places! Please help? Like what does that mean having the same dream over and over again? Thanks! m^_^m
I'm leaning more towards what Stokely said. I have an elaborate and sometimes frightening dream life. Kinda Stephen King-ish. I have had recurring dreams before, but having the same symbols pop up over and over again is more common for me if there is deep trouble in my life. For a few years my dreams were of buildings of all kinds in disrepair. Houses, dorms, apartments. Usually I was in a panic and in a hurry to move/relocate before the structure crashed in on me. I was experiencing severe health problems and I initially thought the dwellings represented the disrepair of my body. But my marriage was also falling apart, and since the dreams stopped when the (uncomfortable, deteriorating) marriage did, I now think the dream symbolism represented home life and domesticity. And ok, maybe my health too...
I think most dream symbolism represents our internal selves and all our various parts, physical and psychological, whether we are aware of them or not.
Keep a dream journal! It's so cool to look back on a dream from many years ago and finally GET it!
Reoccurring dreams are an omen of things to come. It is a prelude of some major event that will happen in your life.
The dream is reminding you of your life path that you chose. In the dreams you are actually frightened by the events and naturally you assume the events, when they come to pass, will be frightening also.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Its the unknown that frightens you. When you finally walk that path and the events unfold, it will be familiar to you. Once it is familiar, the fear will be immediately erased.
Face the future the way it is meant to be. Stay the path, but start walking the walk. There truly is nothing to fear was the truth of the dream becomes known.
Most dreams contain messages that serve to teach us something about ourselves. Unfortunately many a times we forget what we dream about as we go about our daily routine. With recurring dreams, the message may be so important and/or powerful that it just will not go away. The frequent repetition of such dreams forces you to pay attention and confront the dream. The dream is trying desperately to tell you something. Such dreams are often nightmarish or frightening in their content, which also helps you to take notice and pay attention to them.
Recurring dreams are quite common and are often triggered by a certain life situation or a problem that keeps coming back again and again. These dreams may recur daily, once a week, or once a month, but whatever the frequency, there is little variation in the dream content itself. It usually points to a personal weakness, fear, or your inability to cope with something in your life - past or present.
The repetitive patterns in your dream can reveal some of the most valuable information on yourself. It may point to a conflict, situation or matter in your waking life that remains unresolved or unsettled. Or some urgent underlying message in your unconscious is demanding to be understood.
Following are some tips in overcoming your recurring dreams.
1. In understanding your recurring dream, you must be willing to accept some sort of change or undergo a transformation.
2. You must be willing to look within yourself and confront whatever you may find no matter how difficult it my be.
3. You must be able to look at the dream from an objective point of view. Try to get pass the emotional and reactive elements of the dream and get down to the symbolic images. Many times dreams are masked by elements that are disturbing preventing you to delve any deeper. This is a defense mechanism that your unconscious may be putting up.
4. Be patient. Do not get discourage if these dreams still recur even after you thought you have come to understand them.
5. Learn to accept yourself truly and fully.
Often times, once you discover what your recurring dream is trying to tell you, these dreams will change or altogether disappear.
Having the same dream over and over again means that you are continually faced with some sort of problem which never seems to go away for you. This could be a personality or character flaw, or, it could be a stressor that is constantly present (in this case, maybe having to wake up early, wake up for work, or wake up for something else that you dread?)
