One night, my brain decided to plant me in my dreamstate in the middle of a zombie apocalypse! Now, don’t get me wrong, I love me a good strong lucid dream, and other vivid dreams that stay with you for days after the event; but this one, if you’ll excuse the pun, bit the barney!
The dream started off as any other normal dream would, whatever the dream may be about. My one had me back in college, sitting around with my fellow classmates and my module tutor as she informed us of our newest assignment that we would be working on. All was well, commenting went back and forth something similar to as it would in college, when the next thing I know, the walls are fading away, I am suddenly in a derelict looking Dublin City and there are zombies to beat the band. I have a rifle in my hand and with only two rounds per load, I did a lot of reloading.
So there I am blasting zombie brains left right and centre and I can’t help but think this is the most intense thing I’ve ever experienced, how the hell am I surviving on this two-round rifle?!? I spoke too soon as next thing I know I’m grappling with this thing, the most grotesque zombie of them all and suddenly I have a machete in my right hand and I’m hacking at the rotter like there’s no tomorrow!
I’ve had plenty of these dreams before, but none really since I started here on WBW, so I thought I would share it with you kind folk. Now, I know how the saying goes, “other people’s dreams are boring”, and that nobody like to hear them, but oddly enough, I do! I love the whole “meaning” behind dreams. I have looked up the meaning behind my zombie apocalypse dream and apparently I am a zombie, but not in The Walking Dead sense, more in the same old, same old routine that I am at this stage just going through the motions of life. Another meaning was that I was being paranoid, super anxious and not happy in my waking life. To all this I call cow-dung! I am a true believer of dreams having meanings, but none of them were acurate to me, and when I actually sat down and thought about it, what was that I did the other day? Oh yeah: I sat and watched 2-3 hours straight watching season 5 of The Walking Dead, and reading volumes 20 and 21 of the graphic novel! Oh well!
Have you had any odd/strange/apocalyptic world dreams lately?
What’s your opinion on hearing/reading other peoples dreams?
Do you believe that most dreams have a meaning behind them all?
