I dreamt that I am on a cruise ship. I seem to be enjoying the upper deck in the front of the ship. It seems to be a nice day with a cool breeze. There are other people also relaxing. Behind me is a bar where you can get fancy drinks. I remember holding something in my hand (in real life I don't drink any alcholic beverages). I sit and just look out forward to the sea, and listen to the people talking, letting it all blend in. I feel pretty happy.
There is a funny sound like someone popping a champagne bottle. It disturbs me just enough to look to see where the sound came from. I also notice other people are looking to. It must have been espcially loud. Then I see a billowing black oily cloud from the lower back left side of the ship. Then gradually the sounds of screaming from the effected area towards where I was. No one moves on the forward deck, they just stare up at the black cloud, and then there is the sound of metal groaning, and then there is a second explosion right below the deck where I was. I feel scorching heat at the side of my face, and then there is a tower of fire and smoke immediately to my right. I drop my drink, and the deck begins to tilt. I feel myself sliding, and I have to get to my knees to get away from the searing heat. Some people are trying to hold onto the rails, but it's no use, the ship is going down, and it's going down fast.
It's almost like I can't feel anything as I see the deck begin to slip into the water diagonally, and suddenly I am in the water. It's so cold it takes my breath away. Breifly I think of the woman I got on board with, but I forget about her pretty much immediately, as I am now swimming for my life.
I remember some part where I am staying still for some reason, or treading water. It's hard because my clothes are soaked with sea water, and it's weighing me down. The sea is so clear, and I watch as the ship falls away from me intot he abyss. Every once in a while small orange bursts sharply contast with the outline of the ship. I spot a life boat with a few people on it, and swim towards it.
It's hard getting there. There are already so many dead bodies floating around that I have to press myself through. I don't notice that they're burned, but I suspect they perished from the cold. The people on the little boat help me on.
I don't remember anything else.
I think I have often has this dream, but usually only remember the swimming in the water part. I am guessing it has something to do with a past life experience.
