    Dreams the last two nights:

    1) Before going to bed I found a huge, nasty spider in my closet. I am not afraid of most bugs or rodents, but spiders kinda freak me out (I've actually been bit by spiders alot, even the brown recluse and hobo that I have a nasty scar from). So I killed the spider and then for just a second, considered what it would be like to be that spider and be alive one minute, dead the next. The dream that followed: I WAS a spider.. I don't recall any human emotions or abstract thoughts, I simply was a fucking spider, moving around through some kind of debree, dirt paths, tunnels. Strong sensory input.. smell, feel, sight...I have never had a dream like this, where I have seperated so much from human-ness. The dream was somewhat hazy, but as I awoke my first conscious thought was "I understand. ...there is no thought, emotion, etc.. but such a strong survival tone. And it's everything! The spiders existance is everything to it, just as mine is to me! I will never actively kill a spider again."

    2)
    my mom was doing something that upset me. I turned into a child, It was me but about 6 years old. I crawled into this space under our stairs and was crying. My mom came to the space to continue upsetting me, I stood up and grabbed her arm, and it caused her to shrink until she was palm sized. I held her in my palm, she was kicking and screaming.. I took her into the bathroom and put her head in the toilet water. I would dunk her head then pull her out and say "There are consequences to your actions, do you understand now?" over and over. I was saying it in my sleep when my boyfriend woke me up.

    HaHa. Pretty fucking weird huh. =P

    ha ha, I believe even he was named for the god and shaper of dreams? (I believe the drug "morphine" is named for Morpheus as well.) But yes, very applicable, ushering me along and watching out for me. They say that Morpheus' brother, Phobetor, controlled the animal elements in dreams, but Phobetor is a crummy name for a horse.

    They keep horses in our Matrix, do you think?

    They say that many of the same areas of the brain activated by external sensory input are stimulated when we dream as well. Our Matrix, in effect, is really no different than any other dream. Whether or not there are horses depends entirely on our Dreamer. A rational man would dream of horses so he wouldn't run the risk of becoming one, but Dreamers aren't usually rational men. So they keep horses here but not unicorns nor Pegasus, as we are but the fancy of a rather insecure and self-absorbed Clydesdale.

    I had a weird dream recently. The dream was a normal stupid random dream, something about breaking out of jail and a parking lot. At one point in the dream I was in my childhood room and I heard a loud pop inside of my head, and then I fell to the ground. I was completely paralyzed and I felt electricity surging through my body, and I stayed there for a good few minutes just staring at the ceiling. Then I woke up.

    Did I have a dream about sleep paralysis?

    I am so down with that. I'll just have a chat with Clyde. He gets winter dysphoria in the summer sometimes.

    Rex, my black horse came back last night after months away. I went into the yard, caught him by the bridle, and instead of putting him in the pasture, I got on his back and we jumped the fences. I'm glad he came by - I spent the last 17 hours sick and asleep when my medications hit back.

    There is some actual condition where you hear loud pops inside your head when you are asleep. I don't remember what it is called, but I remember reading a news article about it once. The body is actually paralyzed during sleep, so it may be that you were actually aware of your paralysis. Interesting.

    I used to have sleep paralysis really bad when I was a kid. It was happening every other night at one point. I was actually afraid of sleep for a long time after that.

Anyways, I managed to rescue my tiger from her, and later I was sulking in a corner, and told her, "You tried to kill my tiger!". She responded by saying something like "I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish by telling me that," and my dad agreed with her. I felt really hurt and misunderstood. And that's the dream. Note that my grandmother is not that kind of person who would kill my pets, and I don't actually have a pet tiger. I have no idea what this dream means.
    It sounds like the 'hurt and misunderstanding' influenced you by making you question the validity of your own needs/perceptions/thoughts. Since you didn't know how to deal with it, you disowned the feelings, but the pain lingered. Something related to it at the time probably caused an anxious unconscious trigger that came out in your dream to help you understand where it was originating from. It probably forced you to re-evaluate the situation with a much more overall vantage point and re-own your needs/perceptions/thoughts as valid. You're so lucky. Those are the best dreams, imo.

    Do you think the horse represents freedom? That seems to be its purpose to help free you when you become encumbered.

    Hah, your spider dream is so Fi, lol. I had a dream like your consequence one once. It seems to be a way to resolve being treated unfairly or cruelly at some point by not dealing with it well. So the tables become turned in the dream. The dream let me express that anger about the situation that never got let out and reminded me how important it is to sometimes get angry, no matter if I rationalize that it will make a situation worse in some way at the time. Cause even if it does make a situation worse, it can feel better afterward.

    You mean like where you know you are dreaming and are partly awake trying to move your body and completely awaken, but you can't move, so you aren't sure really what's going on? I think there is a name for it. Supposedly it happens when you are exhausted, in a deep sleep, and get startled into waking; so you're cognizant and trying to move, but literally can't.

    A few, off the top of my head:

    1) Mirrors
    This started when I was a little kid; the first nightmare I remember having (when I was 5 y.o.), involved seeing my reflection in a window and realizing that it had an evil expression -- then trying to duck away from it, and having it follow me. For the next 5-ish years of my life, I had an irrational fear of looking into mirrors at night.
    Even now, I can't think of a time when there was a mirror in my dream that wasn't malicious somehow.

    2) Losing It
    I've dreamed that I became addicted to drugs and my friends had to stage an intervention. I've dreamed that I've gone insane. (Usually this involves either looking in the mirror and seeing a crazed face (see #1) or hearing music in my head that isn't there and that I can't turn off, or realizing that people are afraid of me because I'm so out of control.)

    And, recently...
    3) Bi-curiousness
    I blame this on having such terrible luck with men that my subconscious has decided that it's not worth even dreaming about men anymore. The last time I had a dream about dating a man was a few years ago, but recently I've had several dreams about dating women. Most of them involve my girlfriend becoming more in love with me than I am with her -- because I'm straight and just wanted a good time! -- and then me feeling guilty about not reciprocating.

    There are more themes, but I can't think of them right now -- except to say that my dreams are always plausible, but not probable. There's almost never any magic in them, but there is often swashbuckling adventuring.

    EDIT: Also, when I have more than one dream in one night, usually the first dream will involve me as myself, and then by the second dream the perspective will shift and I'll be someone else. Initially I'll be myself watching that other person from afar, and then the perspective will shift entirely and suddenly it's as if I was never anything but that other person. (Often, this other person is male.)
