  2. I had a dream between 6-8 am this morning, before falling asleep i was thinking of this thing that my boyfriend did that is upsetting me so much. When i fell asleep he came to my apartment and when i wanted to tell him about it, his sclera of his eyes turned bloody red: no dripping. And also his nose was dripping blood from the pores. I was so worried but then this happened twice and i thought to myself in the dream that he doesnt want to be talked to about what he did thats why hes doing this like thats how i felt. Please answer me asap

  3. I had a dream my eyes were completely black. Even the white part of my eyes. And then they turned all the way blue. And it changed from those colors and I could still see everything.

  4. I had a dream, or actually a nightmare. I walked into a dark room where a girl with white hair was sitting on a bed staring at me with big shiny blue eyes. As i make eye contact i get a powerful sence of fear and all of a sudden the room seems to slightly turn sideways as i am kind of drawn og pulled towards her. Then i wake up screaming several times, stopping as my girlfriend wakes me up.

    In addition when i woke up in the morning my girlfriend told me she had slept awfully all night, because i had yelled 4 other times that night. which i can’t recall, i can only remember the first nightmare, and another dream which isn’t related to the screaming.

  5. I had a dream last night a friend and I dropped some sort of substance similar to Molly and our eyes were dialated pitch black and in the white area was covered by what looked like an ocean or sky.

  6. I had a dream where I was at a cabin with my sister and her friends. When I went to greet another one of her friends at the door, I looked past her and say beady white eyes staring at me and I went cold. Scared myself awake.

  7. I had a dream last night where I went to my nana’s house and went to play with her puppy, but she had no eyes! I picked her up and took her inside to show every one but they didn’t care. I looked at the floor and her eyes were just laying there. I sat down and started to cry but I couldn’t actually cry, then I woke up..

  8. Story cut short: I was able to stop a bear from attacking me and my sister by looking straight in its eyes and commanding it to stop. Shortly after, I was able to do that with the wolf too. What does that mean? What do you think?

  9. I had a dream that I somehow ended up in a valley and this blond fairy or witch kept appearing and disappearing closer and closer. It was dawn or dusk and she was trying to deceive me. Next thing I knew, I was on top of her digging her third eye out with a silver spoon. That thing was soooo hard to get out. I don’t remember if I got it or not. It was weird. I’ve been having unusual dreams about magic…

  10. So in a dream I had last night I looked in the mirror and I had bright blue eyes and in real life I have brown eyes. And I remember I kept looking in the mirror and every time I looked my eyes were different colors such as green and hazel. It was weird but I do remember thinking how beautiful they looked. What does this mean?

  11. i had a dream where something fell out of my eye. It was a small oval shaped flat stone like or bean like material. What does this mean? I think it was the left eye.

  12. Had a dream about going through a lot of pain and not understanding what was going on. I looked into a mirror and saw my left eye was gone and where the eye was suppose to be was a blue veiny liquid.

  13. I dreamt I was round my next door neighbours I walked out of there back door because I heard my dog barking when I got to the door I noticed my neighbour walking away from the fence I got to the fence I looked at my dog it had blood around its mouth and was barking at the cat right next to the cat was a blue eye (it looked like my fathers) it had threenough stab marks like it had been stabed out with a fork, I rushed in to see who’s eye it was but my hole house was in the dark I turned on the living room light and I saw my mum holding my dad she looked at me with tears in her eyes I said to her is that dad’s eye and she cried yep. I looked at my father he was shaking in pain his eyelid of where his eye was meant to be was shut but no longer hold its round shape his face was full of blood.

    I would like to know what all of this means as it is a very err weird dream to dream expecially about my father.

  14. I had a dream the other night where a man (unknown) stood so close to me all I could focus on was his piercing crystal blue eyes. His eyes were so clear they looked like empty tunnels into the universe. The outer edge was blue, and the centre looked as dark as space with little specs of light. I remember every detail about his rugged face and empty eyes. But I cannot find anything that will give me clarity of what it all meant. I’m a very spiritual person, so ofcourse this has really spun me out.

  15. I had a dream that i woke up and was going about my day, and went to the bathroom and looked in the mirror and my eyes were really green/hazel. (my eyes are really brown) and in my dream, i acknowledged the change saying to myself “wow my eyes are pretty green today!” and when i looked again, they were back to brown.

    can that mean anything interesting?

  16. I had a drean And my left eye kept bugging me, I went to look.in the mirrior and kept rubbing it cause ut was scratchy and i noticed it was slit, from the.corner to my eye through my eyelid and up to my eyebrow. I started freakinh out.didn’t know what to do.

    What does it mean?

  17. I had a dream where my boyfriend of several years asked me to marry him and we were standing under a bright light and when he tilted his head up his eyes where the most beautiful green and looked like huge deep glittering gems and when his head tilted down again they were still gorgeous and impossibly green but looked like a regular eye. His eyes are normally brown.

  18. i dreamt: i was picking out a flakon of perfume in a shop in Paris, when a Group of strangers came in. They tossed everything in their Baskets but nonetheless i got by, and could pick out my Things they did not disturb me.
    A Man approached me and asked what i was looking for. I told him and he smiled at me. He had the most beautifull Eyes, a little blue and a lot of gold and brown, they made his face glow from the inside. The where so mezmerising, and i followed him out i just felt i had to. We got into a conversation wehre i asked him what he was doing, he murmured someting of water mint psycholy, a more common name for pre- natal psychology so he told me, because it ment like the little leaves of the mint still in the water, and the smell they have, so innocent and so fragile and gentle. I told him that i thought that a very interesting science. He was delighted to find me recognizing it and beeing honestly interested, he smiled at me and looked into my eyes. I felt lucky and saw that not only his eyes where full of light but his whole face and beeing seemed to glow. And it struck me that i was ment to know this man, i felt in love, i felt deeply happy to have met him like it ment good fortune for my future and love and everything. I woke up baffled, for i can still recall every little detail, from the smell of the perfume to this mans eyes and hair and clothes, to the street and the nois, and the professional interest when he told me about his work, the little leaves of water mint in a quiet water over wich soft mist dwelled, the smell of them, as well as the love that poured out of his whole beeing, but most of all his eyes, what a fascinating dream this was.

  19. I dreamed i was laying beside my younger sister and noticed their was one light on in.the dark room. It was a lamp beside my sister she was on my left side resting her head on her shoulder with all her weight on her elbow. As i look over and up at her face her eyes pupil were changing and color. When it was snake eyes they were green. Maybe red with alot of black detail.And a golden brown ect. Their was no control.

  20. I dream, quite often, of taking my body apart by accident.
    Last night I dreamed I pulled my left eye out. Immediately upon doing so I realized the depths of my decision. “Oh, yeah… Shouldn’t have done that.” I put it back in a very peculiar manner (like I thought if I got the veiny piece to touch, whatever it touches in my head, it would be ok). But how am I going to see out of my left eye? I severed it. How am I going to keep it from getting infected. I even thought I may just lie to people- like, “No. It’s cool. My eye is fine.”- but I was very aware of the absolute nothing on that side of my vision. I pulled it back out and wrapped it in some meaty like tissue and put it back in same as before. It stung but I could see a bit now from it. If I moved the wrong way it would hurt and my vision would go dark again.. But I could tell it was working.
    And I know people say you can’t or shouldn’t look at your eyes in the mirror [in a dream] but I did. I looked right into my eyes and as I did I slowly unsquinted the left eye and my vision returned.
    Idk. At least I have blue eyes.

  21. I had a dream about a baby. I was holding it in my arms and it had black eyes. It almost seemed alien-like and I can’t remember my emotion exactly. I remember the dream very vaguely but I think my sister was in the dream and I remember mentioning to her that I’ve seen this thing a couple of times. I think I was scared yet calm at the same time. Outta the blue I just got into bed with my sister and she said the baby or whatever it is would appear a certain number of times before it came to fetch me or something like that. My dreams are always mixed up and confusing but maybe someone could make sense of this.

  22. I had a dream of my gynecologist (he is also a far relative) with one eye and it was red. He was wearing a pair of sunglasses with one lens to cover it however it was showing its very bad condition. Please let me know what does this mean. thank you

  23. Hello. I was qondering if you could help me find out what my dream might mean. I was looking into a boys blue eyes and i kissed him.( i do not know the boy) He did not like his mother so i pressed her eyes in untill they bled. But did not make a popping sound I was afraid of hearing. It was a weird one. Thanks! :)

  24. I had a strange dreAm about my eyes last night. I saw my eyes in the mirror, i got something in it somewhat like contac lense. After i get that thing i saw small particles, dotted one. My eyes is blue in my dream. What is the meAning of it?

  25. I had a strange dream about being inside a random building. I was with someone but dont remember who it was i think it was my bestfriend but cant really remember. I decided to leave this building but then a tall blonde hair old woman stopped me and asked me to go to go back to her room. This women had no pupils or irises and her eyes were very small and beady looking. After noticing her eyes in my dream i felt like i was being knocked out and my vision became very blurry. So yea what daffuq is that meant to mean.

  26. I had a dream where an attractive girl with maybe an 80s hairstyle, long hair slender, but in her thirties, maybe 40 at most, just appearred and began trying to hug me, hold me and was playfully agressive. When I looked at her, as I normally tend to look at someone, I looked at her right eye. It was blue, and I looked to the left eye and there was no eye, only smooth skin. I then looked up to the left side of her forehead and her left eye was just to the left of the center of her forehead up ner her hair line. It kinda freaked me out, but she was still hugging and wanting to kiss. I could not look at her and I started laughing and trying to squirm away similar to what the cat and the skunk were like on Pepe Le Pew, the old bugs bunny cartoon. When I first saw her complete image, I realized in my dream that I had an encounter of some sort with her in the past, at least that is how it felt. I was not scared. She was affectionate and I was laughing, trying to squirm away. I woke up, never opened my eyes, and went back to sleep.. any ideas??

  27. I had a dream lastnight that I was in school (I work in a college however it was unclear as to whether I was at work or still a student).
    In the dream I am going about things as normal but can feel a bit of an irritation in my left eye. As it isn’t that painful, I go other to use the bathroom and walk past the mirror and was shocked to see that my eye was turning blue, not just my iris but even the white area of the bottom part of my eye too. The dream ended with a work mate rushing me to the hospital. Not sure what it all means, I dream a lot but it was the first time I had ever had a dream like that.

  28. I dreamt that the pupil in my right eye was draining out. I ran to the doctor and she said it was trauma do to pressure as if I hit my eye but I didn’t. I woke up and my right eye was hurting alnost like a migraine.

  29. I had a dream last night that I felt something wrong with my eyes, So went to my mom’s room, to look at my eye in her mirror. When I got there, I found that my right eye was completely white. This scared me, but mom said it was no big deal, which I knew was wrong, meanwhile, my right eye kept changing from white back to normal, except that when it was back to normal, it had a black rim really close to my iris. I don’t know if it has anything to do with the really bad fight with my sister though.

  30. I had a dream where I was driving through a city with my parents, talking to my dad, and my mom gasped when I looked at her. She told me to look in the mirror at my eyes. I did and noticed that part of both irises were still brown and the rest of the iris was clear. You couldn’t see through to the inside of the eye, but there was a definite lack of color and shading. I thought it was pretty cool until she told me it meant I had a genetic disorder that signifies I’m really a transgender person (not that I have anything whatsoever against them), and she made me cry in the dream. I’ve never really dreamed so specifically about my eyes before, and I can find a lot about eyes changing from one color to another but not going clear. Interpretations?

  31. Hi, I had a dream last night, about some of my eyelashes falling out.
    I would like to know what this means? Thank you, in advance.

  32. I’ve had multiple nights in a row where I’ve had the same dream. I only remember one part of the dream each time I have it. My dream is that I’m standing in front of a mirror, it’s always the mirror of the bathroom of the place that I’m sleeping at in real life. So in the dream I’m standing I front of the sink and mirror, leaning in close and looking at my own eyes. I then pull out keys or a knife, and start to dig out my cornea and retina. It’s either with a Swiss Army knife or my own car key. I’ve had this dream about 4 times now. Each time I’m only hurting my left eye.

  33. i dreamed i was a small boy around 8 or so this car pulls up and this man in a suit steps out he has no face he come after me he wonts my eyes i run into the house lock the door go to the kitchien and

  34. My dream was a small scene where when i was taking my contact lens off, apparently my iris also came off too, it was like it was ripped because it was fused with my contacts. The thing is i could still see, but where my iris was supposed to be, it was like white. This happened with both eyes. Idk what it means, but it was weird.

        • I just dreamt my i irises was white too!
          Still searching for an interpretation =) I don’t want my soul to lose its color is the closest I can get without any help.
