I’ve lost a lot of the dream since I woke up this morning but it woke me up at 4:01. The dream felt very real almost too real for my liking. From what I can remember I was running from something in a forest with others and I want to say my husband was with me. We came to a clearing and there was a rock formation and clear pool of water. We were in clothing not of this time period and I was the last to catch up to the group before we ran into the pool. At this point I was looking through my own eyes. Those before me jumped in but I didn’t feel it was a wise decision and I was going to run up the rock formation to the top…there was a huge door that I did not see where the door stopped at the top and to either side it looked like iron or part of the rock formation. The others were yelling at me to hurry and they started to open the door. The door had a circle on the front that was solid. I got half way up and fell in the water, I could feel the water it was neither cold nor hot it just was and I swam to the side to crawl up and amazingly as I started to climb the water left starting from my head down and I was dry by the time I reached the door. During this scene I was now looking at myself and not through my eyes. I entered the door and on the other side were different worlds happening at the same time. I lost track of who was where and I could see there was a restaurant off to the side, a school that was attached to the main door, the school was spiritual in nature, it had arts and music, meditation and magic and that part felt inviting. I could feel things going on all the time on the inside as if everything was happening inside me. We were no longer in current time but time itself. I could feel things and emotions that were not mine going on. At the same time I was sitting down to eat at the restaurant I could see at the door I was back in the forest but it was alive and full of life and there were elves and fairies and animals all around me. It was a very cheerful place and I was happy to be there. I was not as happy being at the restaurant which was connected to the world I know in today’s time. At the restaurant there were people around me that I knew in my dream by face but I can’t remember their names in real life. I don’t remember what happens between this point and why I was running back to the door and the rock formation alone but I was. This time I avoided the pool and ran up the side, I was in a dress that seemed to be sometime around celtic era and I had leather boots and a braided rope around my waist, the colors were very basic brown and I had long long curly hair. I made it to the door and this time there were spiders all over it. I had to get inside so I just had to open the door regardless of the spiders and how I felt about their presence. There was a huge huge web in the center were the circle once was and as I crossed the threshold looking back a the door I could see on this side through the light coming in through the center that a huge gigantic spider was growing rapidly and would soon outgrow the webbing. I started to crawl out and there was a very ancient couch that appeared to be from Elizabethan times next to the door and it started that way. It had seen me and it suddenly stopped, turned towards me and then turned into a large red poodle and it would lunge at me. Suddenly my real life poodle was next to me and the spider was talking to her and it seem to be coaxing her to it and to protect my dog I picked up what appeared to be a dog but knowing it was a spider I threw it against the wall, it was almost weightless. The spider got up and turned into another dog, Mason, our black standard poodle but I soon called forth Mason’s lead and I had it around the spider’s mouth and I had to convince myself to close the dog’s mouth with my hands even though I was petrified that I was fighting a spider even though it looked like a dog that I know and love. I realized I had been screaming and the headmistress came running. She asked me who conjured the animal and I said I didn’t know but I was running back in from the forest because something was chasing me. That is when I woke and when I did wake I jerked up and my little red headed poodle was running and whimpering in her sleep. I gently reached down and touched her and she stopped running and then I got out of bed and turned the light on. The spider was the one thing I could clearly see every time I closed my eyes..so on a small light went and back to bed until the alarm went off at 5:30
I know spiders are usually a good thing in a dream...they mean creativity, connection, sometimes in some cultures good luck...but this one...I was petrified of this one.
