Dreaming in a Totalitarian Society

Had another weird dream, can't remember exact details but I know it was one of those where I kept getting up and going back to sleep and continuing the dream.

In the dream and as now appears a pattern, myself and a group of people were facing up to another group of people. The devil himself manifested in the dream on the side of the other group and with him came a whole load of power and supernatural abilities that put us in great distress and on the verge of losing. However, and I don't know how, we were able to manifest for ourselves those who had gone before, fought the devil and won. They joined our ranks, as if from the afterlife and with them came the balancing of the scales. We were then able to mount an effective defense. I left the dream with me speaking to a scientist of sorts where we were trying to track down some device.

A Disturbance in the Force
I had a dream the other night, that I was walking, poking around in the last of the winter's snow, at the bottom of a hill near where I grew. My SO clunked a rock amd suddenly, the hill shifted. It rotated, as if on an axis. The man sitting on the hill eating his breakfast was very alarmed, and quite concerned for his two dogs. I found the dogs who where safe and sound. I awoke with resolve to become mentally prepared for tectonic plates and/or magnetic pole shifting in the forseeable future.

I had a 'wrong place at the wrong time dream'...

I was going about some business, with my brothers - in a urban setting, and we were getting thirsty, or had to use the restroom, and so we pulled up to a Salvation Army type establishment. We asked where the restroom was, and for a water fountain. And there was a vending machine on location the friendly attendant gave directions to as it was in another room.
So the soda machine had a selection of sizes... each were very large - the largest being the size of a popcorn or chicken bucket. I got 2 of those for my brothers and considered getting one for myself, but asked myself how I was going to drive while holding it... so I got a small one, but it was still huge.
So, during this time there was some commotion happening at the entrance, and I was confused as to what was happening. Everyone ran away, but a teenager who was digging in a duffle bag pulling out bundles of money and stuffing it in his pockets. I saw all the money and knew the kid didn't own it, so I chased him off. So then, I was tempted to take the money and I did, as it was just there, and everyone ran off.
I regrouped with my brothers and no sooner than we drove off, we were being pursued, as we went somewhere to eat, and the money we paid the restaurant with was marked.
So there was a crosstown pursuit and eventually we were caught. It all happened so fast, and the whole episode was confusing, so I'll leave it at that.

I fasted yesterday, so I'm thinking it made me dream - because I don't have dreams very often.

As expected, even those going for J&J thinking it's one shot will probably soon be mandated to get a 2nd shot!


Get your second J&J dose ASAP say health experts after FDA advisory committee recommended approval of booster: Protection fell from 88% to just 3% in six months, study finds​

Few days ago I had a dream, where one of my teacher from technical school was. Except it wasn't similar environment as it usually is when I see those pesky school dreams. In real life he was an 'old school' teacher, not mean or anything like that, but I was afraid of him, as he was rather strict.

In this dream were several other people also, strangers to me. Then suddenly we were in a room, only that teacher and me. It was like some sort of therapy session. At first we talked about some things that I can't remember, then he asked: "do you allow me to hypnotize you". I said why not. So he started and asked: "how does it feel? Is it ok?". I said it's ok and then saw a bright flash. That's where the dream ended.

I've never been hypnotized, or at least not aware of such, and don't know how it affects or feels like. In that dream I didn't feel any fear towards that teacher, though.

Later on I had a thought: school's finally over, like Alice cooper used to sing! Then I thought to myself: hold your horses, it isn't necessarily to be taken that literally.
 
Another Totalitarian dream from tonight.

High tech weapon of some sort is being developed to manage masses. Single unit looks like a mobius strip made out of carbon compound. Thing is in size of an open palm. Unknown energy source keeps it floating in the air. Means of operations are not specified. Cheap to maintain. Nearly nothing that can be broken in it. Invention introduced to the masses as a weapon to pacify riots. Thing hits a target by punching it. Like a fist.
Then I see shiny metal drums floating in upper layers of atmosphere. Each drum contains a cloud of this mobius strips. When drum is activated, black swarm of strips flies towards a target crushing everithing on their way.

This night I‘ve dreamed that I‘m in some city, but I never saw it before. There was a wide square, like a lot of free space with some glass buildings nearby.

The sky was gray and ominous and I felt like the world is comming to an end.

There was water everywhere.
Not deep water, very shallow like ankles deep, but it was everywhere, all was under water.

I was terribly afraid because there were no people around and I knew we all were hunted by the dinosaurs and that the world is about to end.

I finaly met some group of people, and then there he came: a giant dinosaur like a skyscraper! He was more than 20 stories high!
Like Godzilla on steroids!

We all run to the next building, but the buildings were made of glass, remember, so we tried to find way to underground rooms.

We scattered all over the place to find the entry to the lower chambers, constantly feeling the dinosaur walking around the building - just about to get in.

At the same time I had the feeling that that‘s not all and that there will be some other cataclysm, that the comets were coming, so I was reluctant to go underground and to be buried alive.

Finally someone found stairs to go down, and as I went down, at that moment dinosaur crashed into to building and I saw his opened jaw as he was coming to get me/us!

And I woke up!
:umm:
 
Few nights ago I had the most vivid dream ever. That I was standing in the yard and sudenly a huge cometh flew over our village . It was so close I could feel the heat and hear that crackling sound of burning air wich smelled in a way I can not compare to anything. Then the sound of explosion woke me up in a way I jumped of the bed.
 
Last night I was dreaming I was in a basement listening to music on an old turntable. After the music was over I started to go back upstairs but decided I wanted to listen to another song so I turned back around and came downstairs again. All of a sudden everything went dark and I started feeling a suction like something was trying to pull me to it. I grabbed onto a wooden pole from the staircase to keep myself from being sucked into whatever was pulling at me. It felt very bad and kept getting stronger to the point I was flying sideways because I could not keep my balance.I felt my grip loosening and started praying for help and then I woke up. I was so unnerved by the dream I turned on the lights and was going to try and stay awake the rest of the night but I fell back asleep.

I was then looking down over Antarctica and saw a pool of black bubbling goo start to build up. I saw ships starting to fly out of it and got the feeling that some sort of invasion force was beginning to form. Then I woke up.

Remain conscious of the goings on in your life over the next while. Perhaps this is a warning to be vigilant as something unexpected may happen?

I am intrigued by your dream about music in the basement.
I’ve been combing through the thread on transitioning to 4th density. I’ve also been contemplating the story of Lot’s wife and taking note of the things I would be tempted to get “one last look” at.
It’s quite a task to say goodbye to the world we thought we knew, and all of the people and places and things that brought so much joy.
At times, it almost makes one feel like upstairs can wait.
Of course, that’s also when we realize we’ve been sucked in again 😉
Sound words from SOTTREADER. Stay vigilant, and thank you for reminding me to stay vigilant too!

My wife has had a few dreams lately with explicit apocalyptic overtones. Last night she dreamt of a time in the future when people experienced severe and surprising effects of being vaccinated. She said it became clear to everyone that things were wrong. It was out in the open and people knew nothing could be done to change things.

She met her mother who was experiencing severe pain all over her body constantly. She mentioned severe pain in her back and all her teeth. Her mother told her she was wrong about the vaccine being safe.

My wife was then in a taxi going to a large shopping centre and outside was grey and industrial looking. She felt the world had descended into tragedy with so many around sick and dying. It was terrifying and she was in disbelief about it all.

Everyone wanted to get out of the cities including those who were not yet sick from the vaccine. She said she hadn’t taken the vaccine and was one of the few who was OK.

The shopping centre, large, lavish, and a lot like a casino, had multiple lifts - this was the only way out. A crowd of people were waiting in foyer to catch a lift to exit onto street level to get themselves out of there.

A young smartly dressed man offered her a short cut from waiting like everyone else. He was in an open lift to the side and people got upset with my wife when they noticed her get in.

Suddenly it was no longer a lift but transformed into a spherical spaceship vessel, and started dropping fast and moving directions rapidly. She felt sick as it was spinning and accelerating in different directions, as if she was on a roller coaster. This reminded her of the spaceship in the movie, Contact. Inside the spaceship/lift she was floating and spinning, having no ability to steady herself or hold onto anything.

The young man watched on, standing fully balanced, detached and robotic. He didn’t feel human to her, more like an alien. She then realised the whole thing was a dream and she wanted to wake up. She then experienced sleep paralysis and tried to wake herself up. It felt utterly terrifying to her, knowing she is trapped in a dream
she had trouble ‘getting out of’. Eventually she woke and then told me about this dream.

I've noticed a shift in my dreaming format, lately.

I used to have elaborate dreams with complicated narratives that lasted quite a while.

Currently, I have only very short dreams, like snapshots, emblems or vignettes.

Every dream starts with a random seemingly innocuous situation and then invariably deteriorates rapidly into some form of chaos.

Examples: a normal shopping event turns into a heap of fighting customers over some scarce item; a quiet traffic situation turns into a massive traffic jam; a leisurely stroll turns into a chaotic long chase; an agreeable concert performance turns into a chaotic cacophony; and on, and on, and on....

I never knew there would be that many forms of chaos to dream about. And they are dreams, not nightmares. I stay fairly detached while dreaming and act just as an observer of the processes unfolding. Which seems weird too. :huh:
