This was my mini dream – I was sitting at my computer waiting for a program to install and closed my eyes. Immediately I was in a rough area, like a cave. There was a man with me. We were both dressed rough like we’d been wearing the clothing for a long time. I was frantic and reached done in this hole and ripped off a wooden cover, reached inside and pulled out this long haired ratty thing that almost looked like a dead animal. It was black. I pulled it out and dropped it and backed away. The man said to me, ” Jenna, that’s your coat.”
Then I opened my eyes. This all took place in maybe 5-10 secs, because my program was still downloading. My name isn’t Jenna. I don’t know of any Jennas and I don’t own a black fur coat. Why was I there and why did I know where this hole was that had a wooden cover. This is the third mini dream I’ve had this afternoon. This happens every day, multiple times per day. I go away. I’m going to start writing down those getaways now. Who knows, maybe they are the start of later book. ( BTW go to the links on the starting page of http://mynameisjamie.net and read three of the chapters I have posted for Inside Out.)
I was reading someone’s blog lately and he was writing about his mini dreams. I can’t remember what blog it was. Maybe he’ll see this. I told him I have mini dreams all the time. Often when I close my eyes for more than a few seconds I go away to very real places. It has been this way for a long time. But I had not heard that anyone does this. Are there any other mini dreamers out there? It’s very interesting – except if I do it when I stop at a red light and wake up when a car starts beeping at me.
I just had another mini dream and decided to write it down and keep writing it down whenever I have one. I also have regular intense dreams when I sleep and quite often I am traveling. I go to faraway cities that are endless and travel through street after street. Sometimes on foot and sometimes by car. I have also flown through them. they are very detailed, and sometimes I go through buildings with endless rooms and levels. I always meet people on the way.
Sometimes I see and talk to my father, who died 27 years ago. Very real dreams. once he sat on a couch and I was on the arm of the couch and we talked. Another time he walked across a field and when he reach me he gave a very warm hug. I could feel him and smell him. He said to me, “It’s been a long time”. Then he looked at me and said he had to go. He walked away, turn around and said, “I’ll be back”. Another time I only saw his head, sitting on a side walk and he talked to me from there. That was creepy.
Sometimes I have waking dreams I can control. Have you ever been awake in a dream and knew you were dreaming? It’s weird experience. Once I was in a house, the colors were different and the air was thicker. I thought, “I’m awake”. I left the house, walked down the steps and walked down the street, stopping at different houses and opening their doors to see who was home. When I woke up I knew I didn’t want to leave that dream. I wanted to explore more.”
Sometimes I am looking for something I can’t find. I remember quite sometime ago I was searching for a baby and looked everywhere for it, under tables, behind the couch and the bed and I couldn’t find it. It was lost. Every night for me is like going to the movies and I’m always in a dream when I wake. I can even get up – go to the bathroom – go back to bed, and pick up the same dream and go on.
Does anyone else dream like this?
