I woke up at about 5 am this morning (for no reason as I am not at work today) and had a sudden urge to write down my dreams as they intrigued me and were still so vivid. Before I have wanted to keep a book by my bed and write my dreams down as I read the idea somewhere and thought it’d be interesting to do, especially as psychology, the mind and subconscious etc. really fascinates me.

I remember most that I dreamt about trains; I was on a train and everyone got off without me causing me having to jump of when the train started moving again and also I had to get on a train which was just one carriage and was rather full of people. According to dreammoods.com this could mean (I have picked out the ones most relevant to me) “Alternatively, the dream means that you have a tendency to worry needlessly over a situation that will work out in the end” and “to see a train in your dream represents conformity[…]” and finally “To dream you are at a train station represents a transitional period in your life. You need to take a short break to reassess your situation and determine your path and goals”.

I understand that these dream meanings can be a load of b/s and remind me a bit of horoscopes – they are generic and tend to related to the majority of people’s life situations, but I did find some of my results rather relatable, another example; I dreamt I was in a woods/forest and dreammoods.com also say that that could “indicate that you want to escape to a simpler way of life”. All that I have mentioned above seem to be relatively relevant especially as I looked at other things I didn’t dream about and they didn’t seem to fit my current state of mind.

I thought a lot about university yesterday and whether I want to go or not “you need to take a short break to reassess your situation and determine your path and goals” and lately I’ve been going through a really rough time, including a break up which could explain the forest dream explanation (I also dreamt about a house with red walls, apparently red suggests negativity, blue; positivity).

I know it seems a bit bizarre and like I said the majority of people could probably relate to this, or I could guess myself what some of the dreams mean, but I did have fun doing some researching and analysing my mind. If you’ve ever wanted to write your dreams down as soon as you wake up or have a look into them, I suggest you do it. It’s only a bit of fun anyway and can help you have a bit of an insight into yourself and your current state of mind.

    Things like horoscopes and dream-translating is very fun. I like to do it sometimes too. I don’t put a lot of weight in their words, but sometimes certain dreams resonate with me so much that I can’t stop replaying them in my head. Some dreams incite very strange and powerful feelings within me. That being said, I tend to prefer to try to decipher my own meaning from them. In my opinion, everyone dreams differently because everyone’s brain is different. What means something to one person doesn’t mean anything to another, and things have different meanings between people as well. I like finding my own meanings in my dreams.

    I still occasionally look them up, though, because it’s a bit like writing a story with my strange dream and someone else’s translation. (:

      That’s definitely true about different people, different brains and I like what you said about writing a story with someone else’s translation! But yeah I think it can always mean different things and a lot of times I find I’ve dreamt about stuff I’ve vaguely thought about/seen/talked about in the day so maybe it’s just that lingering about in our subconscious. That’s what I also find interesting is that we are not consciously thinking whilst asleep; they are thoughts beyond our consciousness and control 🙂
