A Recurring Dream

I have not dreamed of this in quite some time, but it was a perpetual vision that I had seen many times before. The way the dream starts was not always identical but I always found myself in the same place, driving my car or very rarely walking over what seemed to be a familiar bridge. It was small by no means. If I had to name it, I would say it was the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. For all I know it could've been different each time but the size was always roughly to scale. Gale force winds would blow in tune with the resonant frequency of the bridge causing it to sway to and fro in the most erratic and chaotic manner. Sometimes it would rain, and sometimes the waves of the ocean would come crashing into the bridge, almost as if to signify the end of existence for all mankind. The feeling in the air was somber yet conspicuous, the emotion so strong as to almost be palpable. Each time, I would begin to drive over the bridge, sensing that it was not in my best interest, but the fear of turning back to god knows what was too immense for it to even be an alternative. The dream was programmed into my psyche and I was never able to construe its actual meaning in the waking world. It ends the same way every single time. The bridge fluctuates violently, and in its oscillation I am thrown off into a violent and murky sea. I can recall so vividly the feeling of a free fall into the depths of the ocean... Then it's over. I am awake. So what does it mean? There's only one way I can interpret it. A bridge connects two sides. A pathway to the expansion of consciousness, my mind is trying to tell me something. I am at a crossroads in life, and a decision is to be made. There are so many years ahead of me(or so I should hope) and what I choose to do now is of dire importance. So perhaps I've already made the decision. Maybe the dream occurred so many times because it was trying to teach me something, some divine realization as to what will be my calling in life. The time we have on this planet is so incredibly small on an astronomical scale. I should make the most of it. As they say, uncertainty is the futures only guarantee.

  1. freaky. I do love the description though. I've had dreams like this. It wasn't a bridge over water, but a wooden bridge over what I think is the Grand Canyon. Heavy wind and rain, but the bridge never breaks. wonder what i'll have to go through in life for the bridge to finally snap...

  3. Why do people have recurring dreams? You should get it professionally interpreted, might be something your subconscious is trying really hard to tell you.

  6. When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.

  13. It's quite hard to put dreams into words. People tend to overdo it and add stuff. It's because you don't dream in words but rather in picture. But you did a good job!

  16. I love the photo. As for the dream: Try your hand at lucid dreaming. Perhaps the next time you have this dream, you can explore it a bit more. Make different choices.

  25. Only you can decipher your own dreams, you might figure it out later on.

  26. I always have the same dream scenarios, with the time a bit shifted, at least once a week. And when I wake up, I realize that it's happened, only I can barely remember what it was about.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't really have any dreams at all, it seems.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow, you remember dreams very vividly. I'm jealous.

  29. You're not alone with reoccurring dreams. Although I haven't had one for a very long time, I too had one when I was.. I think 10 or 11.. It was always some sort of nightmare. It was at a time in my life when I was living at this incredibly creepy house. After we moved a year or two later they stopped. I won't describe the dream because I can't really remember it all too well. Ha ha. All I know is that I had entered a dark room with a box on a table and that there'd always be some sort of creepy background music playing.

  32. Ugh.. I'm not contempt with most of my dreams.. but reading your dream.. Anything with water scares me. I'm not afraid of being in water, or out of water, it's just.. water fixtures scare me lifeless.. If I were to look at the bottom of a boat, I'd start crying. Well, not really, but I get scared. Any clue what -phobia this is?

  36. Very well structured and described, kept me pretty captivated. I used to have recurring dreams, and a lot of the time I thought way too much about what the dreams meant. I soon realised that despite the fact my mind is trying to tell me something, it's what I do in this world that really matters, not what happens in the dream.

  37. Dreams like these always make me want to go to bed again so I can dream about it further.
