last night i had a very strange dream. there is a few reasons why it was odd to me. first reason is the realness of the dream. second, i had only just fallen asleep when this dream occurred and i was under the impression you must be in deep sleep. Lastly the dream itself kind of disturbed me and i slept with the light on after that ha ha. i fell asleep waiting for a text from my bf saying he was ready for me to call. In my dream I woke up believing i received this text messages but i only read pt 2 of his text. I tried to call him feeling a bit uneasy, when i tried to call i got a recorded message from a women that was quite erie after this phone call i had a small sense of somebody Else's presence perhaps controlling the situation. i turn on my lamp and try to turn my room light on but it wont turn on. i leave my room and hear loud recording coming from the room next to mine where my cousins were sleeping (my cousins were sleeping over last night and this was the same in the dream) i go into the bathroom feeling very uneasy now and consider going into my grandparents room. i decide to go back into my room and try calling again. i try calling again and it still wont work. main light still will not turn on, and now neither will my lamp. I start to lose body control of myself and begin to stumble. I fall to the ground and start screaming for my nana (i did the same thing when i was scared in the night as a child) nobody comes so i stumble my way through the now dark hall with the tape still going. i go into my grandparents room crying and being hysterical and also very scared, telling my nana i am having a night terror and that i need her to help me. my nana acts frightened and even moans terrified. my grandpa laughs at her and i and i get into bed with them. i ask if he can check for my dog ella and make sure she isn't trapped in my room. i was lying in bed with them. i woke up to a vibrating feeling in bed. i was in my bed the whole time and i woke up to my bf steve asking me if i was still awake. I had slept for 1/2 an hour.
background info on myself that may help:
i live with my grandparents because my mother and i have serious relationship problems and can not get along. i have lived with them before in the past also.
my boyfriend and i have been dating for about a yr. we have been through everything together. we do not fight ever. i feel extremely lucky to be in a relationship with him, we fully trust one another and have a very strong connection. he is one of my closest friends also. i have had somewhat of a rough year though. I got charged and now am on probation. i feel as if i have been very disappointing to my family and there is a huge disconnection in my family life. usually steve is the one to help me through the hard time. im not sure if this extra info will help and im very open to all interpretations of this dream. Sorry for the long post! any help is greatly appreciated because i believe this really does have meaning to it, any question u have just ask and i can answer in details.
You can transfer into REM sleep pretty quick, so thats not really a strange phenomenon. Do you have issues with men and feelings of being controlled?
In general, a dream is simple your subconscious mind working wile you conscious mind is resting therefor dreams can become abstract and illogical. But never the less dreams are a manifestation to the emotions that most prevalent in your life. Some of us old onto emotions for days and years so it may be a reflections to something that is from the past and some more recent. The trick to interpreting dreams is to know that dreams are entirely a reflection of ourselves. It works best if you look at the dream as an abstract poem. Your subconscious doesn't always follow logic that is what the consciousness is for but when you asleep, that is gone. Your dream is fairly abstract and so it is hard to interpret as a stranger of your circumstances. Why I ask if yo have a problem with control and men is because you said,
" i fell asleep waiting for a text from my bf [male] saying he was ready for me to call." [ When you wait for someone else they are in control ]
"... i had a small sense of somebody Else's presence perhaps controlling the situation." [ also lack of control ]
" i decide to go back into my room and try calling again. i try calling again and it still wont work. [ lack of ability ]
"main light still will not turn on, and now neither will my lamp. "[ lamps not turning on are a loss of ability, darkness could suggest that you can't see which is another way of saying that you don't know what to do]
"I start to lose body control of myself and begin to stumble." [ also a loss of control ]
" (i did the same thing when i was scared in the night as a child) " [when we are children we are inferior or vulnerable]
"my nana acts frightened and even moans terrified. " [your grandmother [female] is supportive]
"...my grandpa [male] laughs at her and I..." [this an expression of not being valued or someone rejecting your feelings]
"i ask if he can check for my dog ella and make sure she isn't trapped in my room. " [this is also an expression of a loss of control, also confinement" [The idea of confining the dog suggests that you feel confined.]
Remember everything in your dream is reflection of you including the people and situations. You grandmother , grandfather, dog and cousins are all reflections of you and your emotions. Interrupting your dreams depends on your perceptions of these things.
Considering that you are on probation, I would suspect that the probation officer isn't to supportive of your feeling and opinions
and sense you have had restrictions imposed on you from him, this dream could simple be an expression of your feelings about the situation of being on probations.
I was on probation when I was 14-ish, My probation officers' name was Ms Frick, we called him Ms Prick. I think you might know why.
