Wow! That is a messed up dream too! Maybe it is bothering you in your sleep more than you know and it is coming out in your dreams. You got this brother. Life has been unbelievably and unreasonably harsh lately in those hospital scenarios.

What happened to the highly contagious Monkey pox virus...

I met a man in my dream who's back was covered in pustules like from measles/pox.
I asked him what it was from. He said nothing. I was just supposed to see it.

Monkey pox is the Bush. Covid is China with a ton of traveling middle class…

Dreamt I was back in my childhood bedroom. Got up to eat breakfast and the whole family was at the table. Super unusual. I became lucid and got excited. Everyone’s head snaps in my direction at once and I fell through the floor back in to my real bed 1,700 miles west. Been years since I’ve been lucid.

On a hiking trail with my wife. It seems a bit touristy, with railings, but nothing like a paved trail, it’s going up some rocky areas. My wife gets out some mauve colored nail polish. She starts painting the ground in front of her, trying to fill it all in. But she seems a bit obsessed and won’t stop painting the ground, just keeps painting it more and more covering a large area of the ground with mauve paint. I finally get her to stop.

(transition…)

I am in some woods, the area is a little hilly and the woods are not too thick so I can see a ways through the trees. I am with my cousin and his friend, they are up the hill past the point where I can see. We are hunting. Earlier I thought I saw a small moose, or at least I had been looking for one.

I moved through the forest where I thought I would find a deer. I was by myself and just turned back to look for my cousin and a large animal appeared.

It looked like a large animal, a mix between a wild deer and a cow. It moved like a deer, but it had long-ish white fur more like a cow, and the antlers were shaped more like cow horns.

I pulled my rifle up to my shoulder and as the animal changed directions, I took my shot right in the heart/lungs region. I knew I hit it, but didn’t know how good the shot was.

It ran a ways up the hill away from my cousin, but got spooked and turned back my direction. This happened a couple times, I tried to get another shot but it never gave me the chance.

My cousin showed up and said it was a low shot. Now this beautiful creature was laying at our feet.

I was invited to this guy’s house. I went inside. It was not too far from where I live.

He was making a bunch of food for us to eat. I was free to look around. We made some small talk as I went out towards the back. The house opened to the backyard and there was a covered patio where the table was filled with food he had already prepared. There was a small grassy yard behind the patio and a garage farther back.

The whole situation seemed rather strange, but I had been invited and the guy seemed like he wanted a friend, so I stuck around. I asked him about how long he’s lived there and he replied “10 years” and chuckled.

He finally brought the last of the food out to the table so we can eat. It was a strange combination of dishes, almost like someone had taken multiple days’ leftovers and put them all out.

He got out his own little table, which was only a foot off the ground, sat it down and he sat on the floor to eat. He commented how good the food was. I took a bite of pizza and asked if he made it. He laughed and said it was Pizza Hut.

After some small talk his girlfriend appeared. They had a manilla envelope with several documents in it. There was some sort of contract they wanted me to sign. And a non-disclosure agreement and some other document to keep me quiet. They started explaining, it was just in case things got out of hand. I felt they really wanted my signatures on those documents and felt I was in some kind of danger. I felt very uneasy.

I excused myself and got up to leave. Thanked them for everything. The girlfriend asked what they could do different, like for the next person they invite over. I thought for a second and suggested to her that they give more advance notice, hoping that if they follow my advice then it could save someone else. She liked the idea and was explaining to the guy.

I got in my car and called my wife to let her know I was on my way home.

Woke up with my heart pounding this morning. I dreamed one of those big giant Hercules troop carriers flew over very low, and as I looked out our sliding glass doors it plowed right into the ground in a tremendous explosion. I had been laying on the floor, and as it exploded I rolled to the side behind the wall as I saw a hail of debris coming our way and it rained down on the ground and into our sliding glass doors. We went outside where the neighbors were all milling around and my wife and I decided we should go look for survivors. I looked at a broken section of glass in a rubberized frame and realized there was blood on it as I was going back in for my shoes. A little kid threw a rock at me hitting me in the side, as if it was my fault somehow. Shockingly real dream!

Had a dream I was about to park my car but someone else wanted the spot so I deliberated then parked in the next spot.
The guy parks then gets out accusing me of trying steal his spot.
He comes at me so I grabbed a conveniently placed steering wheel lock off my dash board and open it out to full length.
I warn him but he comes at me so I hit his knee with it. He comes again throwing a punch so I whack his arm.
We're parked at the veterinary's.
The vet comes out and we both pretend nothing going on here lol.

Dreamed last night that we lived in a huge apartment complex, and that across the street was the gate to a military base. We heard rumors that they were going to destroy a place behind us because it was a bunch of terrorists who had some bad weapons. They pulled an F16 right up to about 50 feet from the gate, and shot a single missile which destroyed the building behind us. Wow so real too. I think current events are effecting my dreams a bit, and I don't even watch the news, but it is impossible to escape it completely.

Yesterday dreamed of my wife wanting to buy a mattress. I told her how much we could spend. She went out and bought one and said she spent quite a bit more. Ok, no big deal. But then I found out that the mattress costs $15,000, and no returns! I started to get anxious then. She said not to worry, we can just deny the delivery when fedex tries to drop it off.

Last night I dreamed we were all over this neighborhood in the rain, picking tons of different mushrooms all over the place. Going through yards, sneaking them out from under windows while people were in there watching TV, many bruised blue, but completely imaginary, I spotted some that were bright blue under a bush with my flashlight only to discover they were ceramic lol. There were literally mushrooms everywhere. Tons of these big orange/brown ones that looked vaguely like lobsters, some that looked like rolled Pax, tons of little buttons that looked like Crimini's from the store, many that looked like Azures and Cyans, and I was so happy to have such a big stash and tons more to look up when I got home. Forgot all about it until and ad for a mushroom foraging book just popped up on FB and it all came back. The ground was so saturated it was soft and the neighborhood was hilly. Strange dreams.

Last night I dreamed that I was on a college campus. Lots of students around. It was late, night time, the scenery was dark. They all decided to start breaking into local shops, clothing stores, stealing items and wearing them out of the stores.

I was around the whole thing, but not participating. Just walking through, watching what was happening around me. Sometimes I would go through a broken window in a door, walk around the clothing store and leave when it seemed the authorities were on the way. I had some sunglasses with me. I knew they belonged to my wife and that I was not supposed to have them, I must have taken them without her knowing. As I was leaving the area, I felt like I was somehow betraying my wife by having her sunglasses. Some version of this dream looped at least three times before I woke up.

….

Some thoughts:

This was at least the third dream in about a week that have somehow had me betray my wife. Not in any major way, but I ended up feeling a little guilty each time. This morning I was thinking it over, cause I cannot think of anything at all that would link this directly to my wife in real life. I know that dreams are not always literal, they are often metaphors. So maybe the feeling of betrayal, guilt, going the wrong way, is a real link to something in life... but maybe it’s not my wife that I’m betraying. I started thinking of other people in my life…maybe there’s some connection. Or maybe I’m betraying myself in some way? What if I’m feeling as if I’m leading myself down the wrong path?

I’ll have to let this play out and see if I can get any more insight into what my unconscious is telling me. I’ve got some ideas.

Any dream that repeats in some form multiple times is important. I think you have some pretty good hunches. I found it interesting that sunglasses were one of the main dream symbols.

Try free associating with sunglasses. What are they and what do they do? Is filtering out bright light, or tinting the world of any application here?

Any associations I have are what this might mean to me, so try it yourself, and then reapply any of those to the dream actions and /or emotions and see if anything clicks....

I had some weird dreams last night. They faded and washed out almost immediately when I actually woke, but all day little clips and scenes have been flashing up to me. I wish I could remember all of the dream, but the little clips are strange enough.....

 

I remember the entire dream was based around evading capture. I was in a large complex, both indoor and out, and there were many many other people there, but I was somehow the one that was being hunted. I can't remember who or what was after me, but it seems it was both small squads of human hunters, and also something else that was very large, but I don't remember actually seeing it.

It seems I was running from section to section, large rooms, corridors, store rooms.

 

I have a scene I can see clearly, where I was in a narrow but sizable room that was a wall of windows on one side. I remember the view was rich with detail, of huge rough edged mountains piercing the sky. It was not bright, more like a twilight kind of light, and very beautiful. I think I was pretty high up, and there was an ocean of fog/cloud below where the mountains rose up. It looked like an ocean or lake, but was not water. I can remember thinking, where is this? The though of the Alps, or Himalayas's came to me, like there was a narrator whispering to me.

 

In the next scene I can recall, I some how managed to escape a train like vehicle, full of people like cattle cars. I broke through an opening of a dirt like mound where the train was moving inside. The hunters were closing in and very close. Once I got a little way out from the grassy mound, I sank into a recess by laying down. I was on a slope facing the mound so I could see it, but large poppy's filled in all around me and over me, hiding me from view. The human hunters went past me, not seeing me.

 

As I lay there, I could see something huge moving under the ground at the top of the mound, going from right to left. It was massive, and once in a while the ground would tear open offering  a small glimpse of it. All I could see was dense spikey hair, reddish brown, kind of undulating like sea urchin spines as it moved past the openings, sometimes visible in several places as the ground it was under, crumbled and was pushed aside.

While I watched this, there was a voice that came into my head, and told me " they call it the Hedgehog" like the voice that was narrating earlier.

 

I can't recall much else, but was surprised at how much I can remember of these short clips from the dream. I do remember feeling some fear, but mostly I was not afraid I would not be able to evade what was after me.

Thank you so much Skye for your insight!  I didn't see that connection with the sunglasses before, but now that you mention it, it makes very much sense.

 

Several things in my life were guiding/flowing a certain way over that past week.  First, for a while I've been looking into tai chi or qigong, trying some different things in the evenings.  I even found an old post by Alder where he hyperlinked a pdf of the qigong that he was following.  Anyway, I came across a book that looked interesting and downloaded it and proceeded to read through it for two or three days.  In the course of reading the book, I was feeling anxiety.  With each day of reading, the anxiety grew steadily more intense.  I realized there must be some connection between the anxiety and the book because I don't normally feel this way.  I stopped reading the book and the next day the anxiety was gone, reaffirming my connection between the two.

 

At the same time, I was having these dreams...the ones that had a sense of betrayal.  As I stopped with the book, I realized I had neglected the one thing that was most important to me, which is staying in touch with the Self.  I had not been turning my awareness back inward.  This is the betrayal, the real betrayal to myself.  I began directing my attention inward and for the past few days my mind has gotten quiet.  Not much chattering in my mind, even music earworms have mostly stopped, which have been previously going almost nonstop for months. 

 

It seems that my unconscious was telling me what to do in many ways:  through my dreams and in the feelings in my body.  When I recognized and followed the message, there was an immediate change.

 

This whole experience, while somewhat subtle, seems very reassuring and profound in a way.  I'm grateful to be able to hear the message this time.

Last night I had one helluva adventure dream. I dreamed I was visiting a friend in Chicago, and he said he could get some acid, no matter how much we wanted. I said I want a sheet! So we took off to go get it in his little 4 cylinder car. We ended up in some real ghetto neighborhood, where I was left waiting. He finally comes back, and it's not a sheet, it's a little bag of these teeny tiny microdots, and I got excited as that was some of the best ever for me back in the day. 

 

Anyhow we start driving back, and he is driving all fucked up, and it turns out he dosed while he was in there, and dosed hard. We pass a scene where he almost hits someone that is laying in the road all bloody, with cops all around. I tell him pull over NOW and let me drive. Instead of pulling over, he tries to climb into the back seat while we are moving, car careening all over the place. I finally got control just before we hit a school bus that was stopped. Now I am driving, and suddenly realize that I am also tripping HARD, and I wonder if the baggie had LSD on the outside of it or something because I had not taken any. I end up having to stop and we get out and sit by the car in the dark in a terrible neighborhood, half the street lights are broken, and the one I could see down the street was moving and morphing, and we could not walk, let alone drive. I was afraid we were going to get rolled sitting out there... Strange dream indeedy

I had probably one of the more vivd dreams that I have had in some time. Short and simple, I dreamt with clarity finding a singular shroom, growing from a small patch of mycelium on a bed of red woodchips with patches of Beach Grass around. Just a few inches from a small boulder that stood about knee high with a flat surface facing the mushroom and casting a shade over the patch of mycelium and the mushroom. I can recall seeing slight blueing of the stipe with scraggly bits of mycelia on the base of the stipe. The cap resembled that of photos I've seen of Psilocybe Ovoideocystidiata.

That's all, I wanted to record this here because it's been months since I have recalled such a vivid dream, and I hope that's alright

That's one of the reasons this thread exists Salty. Also of note, once we actually record dreams by writing them down, we become more likely to improve our recall and frequency...........

A few dreams in one afternoon sleep. In no particular order.

A dark skinned woman I know from the post office is visiting. She has with her a sticky fingered toddler with her and I'm trying to clean his hands as I don't want them on everything.
------------------------

My Mom's brings a chicken in the house and it's near my bed crapping on the floor.
------------------------

I said recently that when people lose their connection to spirit/God the government becomes religion for many.

I'm standing on a large area of green grass with a guide. I know it's a guide because I never see them. I can feel their presence to my right.
We are observing people.
They are all straight laced types. All schmoozing and polishing each other's ego's as tho they are all in the "In crowd".
Government workers of all degree. Teachers, pen pushers, politicians.
They begin doing a strange dance together moving their arms and hands and twirling as they move together then away. Their eyes enlarge and dilate maniacally.
They get a big kick out of it and I realise it's like a cult. Some ego driven power trip cult.
I want to catch them on video so I get out my phone and begin recording, watching them through the screen.
I'm thinking, "Wait till people get a load of this crazy shit"
I get enough footage and give them a dressing down on how stupid it all is.
They try to convince me its the shit. "Join us!"

"No, thanks feck off"

I am suddenly on the outside of a large square shaped grey brick building. They've locked me out so I can't watch them anymore.
No wait. They are locked inside. I am free.

------------------------

I watch a strange animated movie about the wolf and man.
From birth, either has their lot in life.
But they are born into cages in a way.
And when they meet the wolf doesn't attack but leaves the man plenty of room where he destroys himself.

I think I understand that one.
Have been writing about a linch pin. Something that if only everyone did the world could find peace. Very simple thing to do. But you can't help the world like that. It's better to leave it alone. People are comfortable in their mental cages, they can't imagine another way. And in that cage they create imaginary friends who become real. And because they created them, the imaginary friend needs it's creator to exist. It needs their energy. And so the imaginary friend becomes a parasitic energy feeding on their energy. Knowing them intimately.

Perhaps the wolf is the silent self and is in the cage with man.
Man's silent self. Giving him a wide berth while he's busy chatting away with his imaginary friend because his imaginary friend is too much for the wolf.
The wolf(Silence) could be his best friend and lead him back to spirit if only he stopped paying attention to the thing he created that now feeds on him.

Dreamed I was watching someone fight a man wearing a business suit.
Was swapping between watching and being the person fighting.
The man was very tall and his head was made of wood.
The one fighting the wooden man was smashing chips of wood off the man's head but the man kept fighting.
