I have noticed that if I am having some sort of physical pain, it finds its way into my dreams. For example, many years ago, I remember this vivid dream that I was standing in the middle of a dark maroon room. The room had glass walls. All around the outside of this room, there were vampires, standing and staring at me. Telepathically, as they stared at me, they sent sharp, stabbing pains towards my stomach, like being punctured over and over again by invisible swords, and there was nothing I could do but stand there and suffer. Then, when I awoke, I found I was having some moderately severe stomach pains.
I was reminded of that dream after last night’s dream of similar theme. The dream began as I and another person (who I would swear at times was represented by Brian Austin Green from 90210) were escaping from this building. From whom were running, I was not sure, but we were being followed by two dogs. We stopped in a room at a hotel, and encountered the first dog, which was this rather friendly looking pooch. It just sat on a cabinet nearby us, watching. I assumed that this dog probably had some type of monitoring or tracking device that would lead to our capture, so I decided that we should make a run for my truck, which was right outside. The second dog, a German Shepherd, was sitting in the truck bed, but I was pretty confident with the remote door opener, I could get in quickly enough. Apparently, I was wrong. I ran, opened the door, got into the driver’s seat, but before I could close the door, the dog reached around and bit me in the neck. This was when I awoke to a very sore and achy left side of my neck, presumably from sleeping in a strange position.
The moral of both dreams: maybe I should take some Advil before I go to bed!
