  9. I had an apocalyptic dream, towards the end I was walking through a wreckage after an object came flying towards the crowd I was walking in. We couldn’t make out what it was bs were terrified. As it got closer it looked like an airplane tail end ( vertical stabilizer rutter, tail end)

    Shortly after we were enclosed by water.

    I am taking a trip soon, and I’m worried about it. Could this be the reason, or can this be a warning?

  10. I had a dream that I was going on vacation with my whole family. (Mom, Dad, Step Mom, Grandma, Nanny, my 2 little brothers, 4 sisters, and my best friend) and we were boarding a plane which I would never do because I’m afraid of planes and heights. We were taking off and We got all the way up in the sky and then the plane started shaking and we crashed. Could this just be a reminder that I am afraid of losing these people because they are the most important people to me?

  13. Very confused about my Dream today. I was hobe alone. It was not my home, but i was put there, Because i was not allowed to go with the others, who also lived in the house. These were people I knew from my life, especially friends and family members. I was not allowed to go for a journey with them because they considered me crazy or I just could not go with them for some reason. I was kept in the house with some one like a door-keeper who had all contact with the outside world. I was not supposed to worry about the outside world.. Then I suddenly feel as tho something is happening to my family whilst in the house and waiting for them to arrive. I look at the clock and it’s 8 pm. And I’m teellig the door-keeper that something is wrong they are late And I just know. I made him worried to check the news, and whilst he does that, a plane suddenly lands 1 cm away from the house I am in with the door-keeper. While he is checking the news I look outside the window and there I as a huge plane , and I know all my family members are in it. I go out the house and I notice 2 family members stand in the door of the plane. I am not allowed to get inside the plane because something is happening there, something dangerous to my family members, and I want to know what is going on, but the two family members tell me I am not allowed to know. The plane is not touching the house i was in but i start to Worry and wonder that in order to save the people in the plane they have to blow up the centre of the house we lived in, im very nervous about this. ! I try to tell the family memebers in the door not to Damage the important house , but because I am worried about my family I don’t really care and I just want to get into the plane and help them, but I am not allowed! Instead , one of the family members in the door, my female cousine, Hands me over a baby throug the door! I realize she wants me to take Care the baby while the tradegy happens, Because thay are not allowed outside. When I pick up the baby I do not hesitate, feel it is my responsibility and still worried , I take the baby to my arms and feel a huge love for the baby instantly. With worry about my family but also with love to this baby who I think was a girl I wake up…. Wonder what this dream is telling me. Am going through many changes and I am very nervous about letting go of my families respection of how I should be. In a place in my life where I am About to find myself and believe in myself but am very nervous about my family… And my responsibilities.

  14. In my dream my family and I were on a large plane.(we had no idea where we were going but weren’t concerned) & when I looked outside of the plane I saw an ex lover I haven’t thought of in years. He was in a cage and kept telling at me to help him. Then he was attacked by an alligator and I went to bandage him up. When I got to him I scared myself awake thinking the alligator would get me next.
