Shot in the Dark

Well in my dreams anyway.

Last night I dreamed I was shot in the neck and to this moment I can still feel the way the black, clotted, warm blood felt just above my left shoulder.  

How gross is that? Very, I know.

I googled the words "dreamed I got shot neck died" and surprisingly, those exact words are reported by others–that exact dream.  I realized people dreamed of dying or being shot all the time, but it was a bit freaky to find the exact wording…oh well, at least the interpretation of the dream is a positve one!!!

Yes, it means I need to get rid of something, that there is a change in life coming or that I need to create a change…well, that fits exactly with what I’m doing right now–figuring out how to make things work in my career–how to fit all the moving parts in. 

Still, I can’t help but cringe when I let the image of the dream return with the sensation that accompany it…very weird.

Do you ever have strange dreams?

  1. Hi Kathie,
    What an odd dream! I’ve never heard of that one. I sometimes dream that someone is doing something I think is wrong, but no one else is the least bit concerned about it and they tell me I’m over-reacting. I’m sure a psychoanalyst would have a field day with that one!

  2. Yesterday I was thinking that it’s probably impossible to have an original thought. And I proved it by thinking of some random things and googling them, and yep. There’s always a blog, somewhere, sayin what I’m sayin.

    I have extremely violent dreams, but typically I’m fighting or running, but as if my arms or legs are in sand and they just. can’t. move. No big mystery what that’s all about, I guess.

    I don’t like those left-over visceral feelings from dreams. They’re so disorienting.

  3. No dreams for me, good or bad. Really, I’ve had sleep studies, and the results are normal, but I just pass out and wake up.

    Interpreting dreams is like interpreting tarot cards though. It’s all what you read into it, there are no right answers.

  4. Yes, all the time! In fact, I’m thrilled to know that I’m not the only one.

    I’ve always been amazed to hear people say that if you die in a dream, you really do die. What rubbish. I’ve been shot, hung, stabbed to death, fallen off cliffs — you name it. I always wake up a little breathless, but very grateful to still be alive.

    I hope I’ll be able to post this — for some reason, I have not been able to access your blog, Kathie!

  5. Well, how is this for a scary dream…..about to turn 43 and waking up and remembering that you had a dream that their was a third child in the house. Yes, a beautiful little boy playing with his siblings……..yikkesss.

  6. Mary, yes it worked!!!!

    Michele, that is a nightmare…perhaps you should adopt, you are in a good position to do that!!!! Your mother-side is calling you to action.
