My Recurring Dream: Does It Mean Something?

by Kenlie Tiggeman on July 13, 2012

I’ve had the same dream countless times (with slight variations) over the last several months, and I wish I could understand what that means.  Unlike most recurring dreams that I’ve read about online, it’s a happy dream.  In fact, some mornings I wake up trying to remember as many details as possible so I can write them down and reflect on them again later.

It’s an innocent dream that is set several years into my future, and when I reflect on it I smile.  I don’t really want to stop having this dream, but I do wonder why I’m having it so often.

I can only remember having recurring dreams at one other time in my life, and I was very young.  I used to dream that a giant cartoon squirrel was chasing me in the woods with a cartoon saw.  (I gave up trying to understand this dream a long time ago. Ha.)

So what does this dream mean?  Is it simple the facilitation of what I hope will happen in my life someday?  The easy answer is, of course, yes, but I’ve always had high hopes and big dreams.  Why is this one so prominent in my subconscious mind?

And why must I be asleep to truly admit what I want out of my life?  (This dream entails common things that I didn’t exactly realize that I wanted out of life.)

Part of me wants to share every detail about it here, but the other part of me wants to keep it all to myself so for now I’ll do the latter.  The dream is just so vivid! I’m not complaining because it makes me feel warm and fuzzy.  I just wish I understood why it’s happening so often, and I wish I could bottle up the feeling I have when I’m walking in it.

Have you ever had a recurring dream?  Did you ever figure out what it means?

When I was a kid, I had a really strange recurring dream. I’ll never forget it. It was me and my friends and we were lost in this field o really really huge sunflowers. These things were like 50 or 100 ft tall! Anyway, my friends would always get kidnapped by this witch that lived in this dead forest and I would have to go rescue them. But it was so hard finding my way out of the flowers, I would enlist the help of these gnomes that lived in mushrooms. Weird right? I would have this dream a few nights a week and this went on for months. I have no idea what it means, although I never really tried to figure it out.

If it’s a good dream, maybe your brain is trying to tell you something about it. That perhaps there is something you can do right now to start to make it all happen for you? I LOVE a good dream! When I was a kid I had a good adventure dream, and I was able to “continue the story” for several nights in a row.

Maybe you’re right…Hmm…I’ll have to think about that.

The only recurring dream I can remember having is a scary one. It always involves someone breaking into the house while I’m in another room. I’ve tried to figure out what it means, and the best I’ve been able to figure is that there is a change in my life that I’m resistant to (the house being my safe routine and the intruder being the change). It makes sense because I usually want to study on major changes before making a move, so a sudden “break in” would scare me.
