Dreams with an upset stomach
I've been dealing with a bit of a stomach bug the last few nights, so I haven't been able to do any OBE or even an lucid dreaming stuff. I just wanted to make a few quick notes about one dream this morning.
In the dream I was working for some type of engineering company, and the dream itself was not pleasant at all. But, the things I wanted to note are:
- At one point I was picking up a heavy, black leather coat. I had to think hard about it in the dream, and I finally remembered that my dad had given it to me in an earlier dream. (So it was mine, and I took it with me.) I've never owned a coat like that back here in the physical world.
- I ran into an old friend ("CB"), and he asked if I could give him a ride somewhere. As he (and my dad) described where it was, I realized it was the usual recurring town in my dreams. The town/city has two main streets, and if you drive down one street several miles, you take a right hand turn and there's another street there that also runs for several miles. CB wanted to get to a sporting event that was in that area. I've lived in many places in my physical life, including Texas and Virginia, and I've always associated that dream area with one of those two states.
- At one point in the dream someone referenced the date "September 15th". I was starting to gain consciousness at this point and really wanted to ask "What year?", but I didn't ask it immediately, and then woke up after that. I was conscious enough to realize people would think that was a really unusual question, which was part of my hesitation.
I made several other recordings of dreams during the night, and it was a busy night, but when my stomach is upset like this my dreams tend to be pretty wild and usually unpleasant, so I don't put much stock in them.
