This dream has been viewed 9191 times.I'm watching a little pale blob float around in a plastic container. I seem to be aware that it's fearful of things that are about to threaten it, although I don't really understand what these things are. All of a sudden, the blob begins to multiply and divide like crazy until the container is full of blobs. They are all pulsating now with a reddish glow. But the very last blob to be produced by this multiplication process is not glowing red -- and all the red ones now approach it in a menacing manner. I sense the non-red blob's fear. Suddenly, all the blobs (including the last one) merge to become just one blob again, that has no trace of red in it. Once more, it cowers in fear in a corner of the container ... and this time I know it is afraid of a herd of reddish blobs coming to attack it. Even though in its most recent incarnation it was many blobs, and was itself in the attack mode.
I wake up, eat a yogurt and go back to sleep.
In a city intersection in Cambridge, Massachusetts, I suddenly become somewhat lucid. I stare at woman who's on the other side of the street, and I realize that she's a dream character. For a moment her face becomes skeletal, as if the tissue over it had suddenly become transparent.
I'm left feeling very puzzled by what happened. Why was she so determined to kill herself? I may have not been interested in her, but I did try to save her....
I walk around Cambridge until I come to a large house. Still sort of lucid, I intend to find a dream character inside of the house to talk to. I walk inside and go through a number of rooms until I find a young man in one of them. But in an instant I sense that he's evil. I leap out of an open window and fly away in fear. I'm propelling myself by "swimming" through the air, using the same motion with my hands that you use when you do the frog kick, with your head above water. I fly over many mountain ranges. I don't stop, because I'm still afraid that he'll find me. However, I fly for such a long time that the cohesion of the dream begin to fail. I notice this especially as I approach where a mountain range is supposed to be, but there's a blank spot until I get right over it ... and then the mountain range pops into place at the last second. And then it doesn't change as I fly over it, as the normal rules of 3D perspective would dictate. Finally, I zoom down to a flat area of the countryside and land ... but immediately wake up.
Additional Comments:I think the first dream is about karma and reincarnation. There are all the themes going on within the dream; there is the concept that we have lived many lives before, and also the fact that not only have we lived lives where we were cruel to other people, we have also lived lives where we have been the ones that were treated badly. And it goes around and around in a never-ending cycle. But I wonder if this dream was pointing out that I don't have to participate in this karmic tormentor/victim cycle anymore? Why can't I just live a life of kindness, and avoid people who are trying to treat me badly?!
I think that the proliferation of dreams on this website lately about interacting with dream characters prompted this dream! It's been on my mind a lot, especially since reading phil's, TomC's, and migo's interactions recently with their dream characters. Unfortunately I was not lucid enough to figure out how to interact in the best way with these characters. For example, maybe I just should have flirted with the first dream character anyway? Perhaps she had something to explain to me? And maybe I should have tried to overcome my fears of the second dream character, who I perceived as being evil? It might have been that the impression of him being evil was incorrect....
