Sometimes the situations I dream myself in are down right terrifying. Not by the situation but by the things that I do and how completely unlike myself I appear to be. I have dreamt of myself doing the most awful things which I don't care to admit. It leaves me frightened of what it could possibly mean and too ashamed to ever let anyone know how I behaved, even in a dream.
Anyways so inspired by this weeks letter I decided to do an experiment I had read from a book. I more often than not don't remember the things that I dream about unless they are bad. In a book (can't remember exactly which at the moment) I had read that a way to recall ones dreams is to sleep with a mirror beneath your pillow, preferably small and round. I know the more common practice is to keep some sort of writing material next to your bed to write down your dreams when you wake before the dream leaves and is forgotten. I just thought this was a little more interesting of an approach.
Surprisingly I did remember the dream I had the first night!
It was strange to say the least. At least I think it was strange. I dreamt of being in the mirror... Like I was a little person in the mirror looking out. I could see me through my pillow with my face smashed against it mouth a gap and slightly snoring hair in a huge matted mess. I could see my bf with his arm thrown carelessly across my pillow right above my head, he too was snoring. I could see our dog squeezed between the headboard and my bfs pillow with his face inches away from mine. I remember looking at the blanket and yet I could see threw it and into the rest of the room. It was almost like I was poking my head out of the little mirror and taking a peak at the dark sleeping room.
Another night I dreamt of ribbon. Red ribbon in darkness just unraveling going all over the place. I think I saw something like it in a movie once. I don't think it was a particularly long dream because at one point it was like the unraveling ribbon did a big drop and it caused me to have the sensation of falling and I jolted awake.
Then another night I dreamt of grocery shopping and coming home and eating an oreo ice cream cake. It was delicious.
So I found this practice with the mirror to be extremely helpful as far as remembering the dreams that I am having. I am no closer to understanding the meaning behind them lol. Who knows maybe one day.
Sorry that this post is so late. Been busy but I am trying not to give up on this challenge as I really enjoy reading everyone else's post and want to be a part of the fun.
I hope you are all well and had a nice week leading into an awesome weekend.
