Closer to danger, further from harm

August 14, 2017

I dreampt I was sleeping and that I couldn't wake up.  I knew I had to wake up because we lived in a haunted house and the presence in the basement was trying to keep me.  I kept telling myself to wake up but my mouth wouldn't move and the person in bed with me could not hear me.  I had an out of body experience where I could see me frozen in sleep.  I did finally wake up or was awakened and the other person didn't realize that I had been in danger at all.  We got up and I realized that the front porch lights didn't work, you could flip them on but they made a strange sound. Oddly the sound they made was like a whirr with the a clacking and it was like these noise makers we had outside to scare away the spirits or maybe just to warn that they were coming. I think we had some sort of sprinkler system that was also meant to keep spirits off the property. I knew not to go outside to change the lights at night time.  I knew I could only go outside during the day and then only then with someone to watch my back. Outside was full of spirits who both wanted us and feared our house at the same time.  The spirits wanted us to leave the house so they could have the thing in the basement.  We had to stay in the house to keep the thing safely away in the basement even though we were very scared of it and it could easily pull any one of is into a coma which was certain death. A spirit boy came to the house and asked for something we didn't have.  Someone at the house told me you have to give them just the right thing so they don't get angry but also so they don't come back.  I have him the bottoms of some green onions but I was told to tell the boy they were rampions. We went to the basement to get light bulbs, we had a tiny wooden shaft that was like an elevator but really small enough to be a dumb waiter and at times it felt like it would stop or that it would go too far down to be in the house anymore, lower like way down in the dirt where the presence was.

the Tree stands alone

August 11, 2017

I dreampt I was walking my dog around the yard at my parent's house.  As we came around the back of the house I found two older men on the property just talking and walking around.  When I asked them to move to made like they would but then didn't.  I began to yell at them but they acted very menacing and started to chase me. I realized that one of the men had a knife.  As I ran down the hill toward the pine trees I realized that a friend from down the street was coming over to help me.  As she reached us one of the men stabbed her.  I know my dog would not have attacked the men but I didn't drop his leash because we were close to the road and I was more worried about cars than the two men.  After they stabbed my friend the man came after me, I fell into the trees and then I woke up.

I went for a run on a trail.  For a while I was running on a train track but it crossed over a river.  I thought the trestle was too rickety so I tried to climb down the embankment to cross the water.  When that didn't work I began to climb back up.  A tree at the bank started to fall down the hill and toward the water.  I actually saw the tree fall twice or maybe there were two trees. I got back on the trail and the tree fell down into the water but as I ran home I saw what I thought was the same tree now in the middle of the trestle.  It broke the trestle and the bridge and tree fell into the water.  I just ran home after that and didn't tell anyone about it.

Balloon slide

August 10, 2017

I dreampt I was at this fitness challenge and the whole team had to finish for us to win.  I got to go first which seems crazy.  It was this giant obstacle course and you had to climb up so high it was just incredible.  From a distance it looked like a jungle gym with the rungs but when you got closer it almost seemed to be made of balloons.  It was incredibly steep and i thought the whole way was up and i fell back a lot but somehow I was able to keep climbing even though I didn't seem to be using my legs.  It was like when people climb the gym rope with just their arms, when I got to a section where the challenge changed I suddenly realized that the rest of it was really a slide and some optical illusion kept us from seeing that half the course was downhill. 

I was in Middletown with Mom and i think we were looking for a daycare center but we were driving around this really run down apartment complexes that were gated.  At some point we parked the car and just went to the beach.  As we walked over the dunes we ran into this old who was telling us all this stuff that my generation had to do to make things better and I just kept cussing at her but she wouldn't stop talking.

There was a dream about going out for dinner and it raining but I can't think of what else happened.

Evil Baby

July 16, 2017

I dreampt about a group of people that kidnapped an evil baby that was the reincarnation of their last leader.  They didn't want to wait for the baby to grow up and they didn't want to put the baby in a really deteriorated corpse.  The baby didn't have the strength to move from body to body like a possession. They found a body of one of their followers that had recently died.  He was in a coffin but it was filled with water and herbs to preserve him and keep his body flexible. A woman in the group lifted the dead mans hand out of the water and he was very pale with super long fingers.  He also had a long dark beard. He seemed to be wearing a robe like other people.  It made me think they were druids. To move the baby into the adults body they needed a book that was at the library but there was a post it note over the barcode saying something was wrong with the record so the just stole the book.  The story was the life of their leader and it was told in verse.  The book was supposed to tell them how to get the soul of the baby into the corpse.  They had to kidnap a group of girls but the girls were adept at escaping each challenge unhurt.  A lot of the challenges were riding in roller coaster with no seat belts of safety harness.  I woke up before the spell was completed. 

I also dreampt about a little boy with polio who was hiding in a bathtub but I never saw what he was hiding from nor did I figure out how he got in the bathtub.

I dreampt I was trying to get dressed for work and I couldn't pick out jewelry that I liked. I was wearing this really crazy outfit that was one red and one green velvet slipper with knee sock that alternated with these knee high blue boots.  I was wearing a skirt that was plaid ruffles in the front with a longer cape like back made of really cheap material like a kids first sleeping bag. I know I had a watch and a bracelet that said my name.  I can't think of what the top looked like.

If a tree falls in your dreams does it make a sound?

July 7, 2017

It was sometime in the past, maybe medieval.  There was a princess whose kingdom was being taken over.  Princess isn't totally accurate since she controlled a village and dressed much more practically.  She had been beaten and her nose was all red and her face bruised.  The villagers tried to rescue the princess by luring the soldiers into the woods with promises of sex.  That didn't work so they got a lot of liquor.  I don't know if they stored the liquor in the trees or if they harvested the liquors from way up high. The villagers had to attach all these gourds to their belts and then get all the way up in the trees to retrieve the alcohol.  It was hard to climb up but on the way down they sort of clipped to the rope and spun around and around so all the gourds flared out. This part was in slow motion. They got the soldiers good and drunk, then beat them all up.  At the end I saw the princess and her husband eating watermelon so I guess everything worked out ok.

I think this was related to a dream I had a few nights back in which I lived in the woods and was raising wolves that could climb trees.   The wolves were very naughty so a lot of the dream was just me yelling "you get down here right now."

I dreampt we had a performer visit at work but I got sick and had to go home and change clothes. When I got back to work it was night time even though I had left mid-afternoon.  I had a really hard time parking my car because all the tires were tilted outward so I couldn't  get close to the curb.
