*small chuckle* Hardly; it's actually pretty involved: It starts out in color at a concert/motocross event featuring a younger Ann and Nancy Wilson and Nancy looks a little like Elvira. I'm on a bike - where I have little skill with it in real life - and pull off some amazing stunt and I see it all in POV; not 3rd-person. The scene changes and I'm at a hospital because somehow Ann had gotten injured, one of Nancy's guitars had been stolen and it's in black and white. I then notice some guy had pulled Nancy aside and they were having sex on some chairs. The last thing I see is my sister running in and screaming 'don't' before it just ends.
I've had this twice in a row, so I'm vaguely convinced that there's some meaning to it I'm supposed to catch but haven't been able to as of yet. Then I saw this forum come up and thought that someone with greater knowledge and more experience than I could help. Ideas? Thoughts?
Well it certainly sounds like you have something to workout with your spirit/subconscious. I have a few more questions before I share my dream. First what did you "feel" when you were at the motocross event? What emotion did you have while riding the dirt bike? And finally is this an older or a younger sister (believe me it makes a huge difference)?
What I feel on the bike I guess you could call euphoric focus - similar to what I get when I'm on stage; I'm a professional guitarist - because you're enjoying the sensation but you don't really have time to because you have to also concentrate on what you're doing so you don't make a mistake. Also, my older sister (point of reference, I'm the oldest of three) is the one in the hospital scene.
I made sure to write the main points of it down as soon as I recognized that dream, but some sensations are pretty dim because it's been a while since I fully recalled it myself without notes.
The first part of your dream sounds very, very good.
I myself have had a recurring dream where I'm falling which usually turns into a sort of float and feeling of pure bliss. when I hit the water or ground below me It feels wonderful (think Matrix), a euphoric/happy release, if you will, similar to the G-Force reaction u get when you slide down a slide or go down a hill in a roller coaster ("let's do that again!"). Once I've fallen I can usually control the dream at that point and fall as many times as I want till it's time to wake up or the dream changes.
That being said it sounds like possibly your subconscious was looking to get rid of some stress. Is it possible that since your job is preforming you are "worrying" over some aspect of your performance that you've never attempted before? Since the feeling is euphoric possibly your subconscious is telling your conscious mind that it can handle it? The next part sounds like metaphor. Keep in mind people in our dreams are usually aspects of our personality . So the next question is How do you feel about those people in your dream?
Since I don't know how the members of Heart make you feel I'm gonna guess you like them and find them attractive (I know I do :)~ ) And since it's your older sister and I know mine tends to try to "mother" me maybe yours does to.

So maybe the "mother" figure in your dream is trying to caution moderation. Have you been reckless or feared being reckless to the point of repression, in your love/sex/professional life possibly too repressed/free since it turned black and white when you got to the hospital I'd say you are going way to far to one side or the other: for example, celibacy/slutty or careless/cautious. Since only you know only you have the answer.
Wow. I didn't expect such insightful observations. Some things, though, seem a little non sequitur.
I'm guessing that the part mentioning 'The Matrix' is in reference to the first show I played - it was about half stage fright and half euphoria. Performing has become kind of a job - manhandling about 200 pounds of gear by myself (not at the same time, obviously) every show - but I still enjoy it thoroughly.
I endeavor to keep my life and dealings as stress-free as possible, but I am involved in a long-distance relationship and it's sort of been taking its toll on the both of us. As far as my jobs, I'm pretty confident in how well I do them, but trying to get my boss at work to expand the business has been nothing but an uphill battle.
*small chuckle* Ann and Nancy are around 40 or 50, so there's nothing there, but I do admire them as musicians. My older sister is still younger than I am, but is a mom-to-be and it trips me out because I've never thought of her that way. I'm also not really a reckless person, but my mom was pretty restrictive in her methods; I basically lived in a glass jar until I was 20 or so.
Yeah, I could well be taking either too many chances or not enough, but I can say that my life is starting to become what I've always wanted/dreamed of, so there aren't a lot of complaints. Things could always improve, I realize, but things are finally where they need to be or are getting there. I do appreciate your insight into this and wish you luck in your endeavors. *tips hat, smiles*
*smile* I seem to have a knack for that - especially having no illusions about the music industry and with the local music scene. I will admit to being a little adamant about managing the store I work in now (a guitar shop), but really only because I know a lot, if not most, of the ins and outs of it.
I don't know what they mean but I have been having this one specific dream where I'am being chased by someone or something ( not really sure what it is that's chasing me-never identified). And every time I call out for help, it's like my voice doesn't work. Nothing comes out of my mouth. I get this feeling in my stomach that makes me sick. And when I wake up I'm sweating so much that my hair mats down on my face. I can't explain the absolute fear I go through sometimes with these dreams/nightmares. Someone help explain this for me.
Blessed Be )O(
This is quite common but no less scary for it. I've had similar dreams. They usually occur when I am particularly anxious and worried about something. It doesn't even have to be something that is life-threatening that is bothering me in real life. It just has to be something I'm having trouble working out or letting go. The feeling of not being able to call for help is also just as common and terrifying. I have this happen at least once a year. The dream isn't always a chase dream. Sometimes I might have something really important to say to a person or persons and I just can't get them to listen.
This is what I propose: perhaps you are having a very anxious/worrisome time in your life. Maybe you feel it could be remedied if a) someone close to you would listen to you or b) you keep asking those around you for help with the issue and no one seems to listen or care.
When I have a dream this powerful sometimes I try so hard to say what I'm trying to say I end up saying it out loud and waking myself up. Some of the words that have woken me up are dictionary, California, and spatula. I know it doesn't make much sense when I wake up but it makes sense to my subconscious.
