Dreams and Ideas

Last night I had another tornado dream. We were at my dad’s house, there was a BBQ going on. I just remember looking out the front bay window, and seeing a huge funnel cloud touch down in the yard, then rise up again. I ran through the house, yelled “TORNADO! EVERYBODY IN THE BASEMENT!” and then jumped down the stairs (literally- I took the first step down, and then hopped over the side and did a drop roll at the bottom). Then I ran into the furnace room, squeezed behind the furnace and water heater, and crouched down. I remember that whoever was with me was complaining about it being cramped, but all I could think was, “Look at all the old LPs down here!” I proceeded to browse through all the records I found. Weird.

I dream about tornadoes ALL the time. I have no idea what it means. This one was short, but sometimes they’re more like nightmares, longer and scarier. I’ve dreamt about being on top of a skyscraper and seeing multiple funnel clouds all around me; I’ve seen the Flatiron Building being taken away by a tornado; I’ve watched a tornado go casually down my old street in Lambeth, Ontario; even dreamt of a cartoon tornado with googly eyes visiting me at my grade school. I know- it’s weird.

And now for the “idea” section- I had a great eureka moment on the streetcar this morning. They should put NEWSPAPER RACKS on the streetcars! Imagine how much cleaner the cars would be, and the newspapers could be re-used! This struck me after the person sitting in front of me threw the paper he was reading onto the ground (and half onto my feet). I was like, “UGH, Litterer.” But, where else is he supposed to put it, if he doesn’t want to keep it? Someone get me the mayor!

  1. hey Ki know you’ve been having these dreams for a long time. here are what the dream dictionary experts say:Tornados To see a tornado in your dream, suggests that you are experiencing some extreme emotional outbursts and temper tantrums.

Unfortunately many a times we forget what we dream about as we go about our daily routine. With recurring dreams, the message may be so important and/or powerful that it just will not go away. The frequent repetition of such dreams forces you to pay attention and confront the dream. The dream is trying desperately to tell you something. Such dreams are often nightmarish or frightening in their content, which also helps you to take notice and pay attention to them.Recurring dreams are quite common and are often triggered by a certain life situation or a problem that keeps coming back again and again. These dreams may recur daily, once a week, or once a month, but whatever the frequency, there is little variation in the dream content itself. It usually points to a personal weakness, fear, or your inability to cope with something in your life – past or present. The repetitive patterns in your dream can reveal some of the most valuable information on yourself. It may point to a conflict, situation or matter in your waking life that remains unresolved or unsettled. Or some urgent underlying message in your unconscious is demanding to be understood. Following are some tips in overcoming your recurring dreams. 1. In understanding your recurring dream, you must be willing to accept some sort of change or undergo a transformation.2. You must be willing to look within yourself and confront whatever you may find no matter how difficult it my be. 3. You must be able to look at the dream from an objective point of view. Try to get pass the emotional and reactive elements of the dream and get down to the symbolic images. Many times dreams are masked by elements that are disturbing preventing you to delve any deeper. This is a defense mechanism that your unconscious may be putting up.4. Be patient. Do not get discourage if these dreams still recur even after you thought you have come to understand them.5. Learn to accept yourself truly and fully. Often times, once you discover what your recurring dream is trying to tell you, these dreams will change or altogether disappear.http://www.dreammoods.com/dreaminformation/dreamtypes/recurringdreams.htmand some more reading on recurring dreams:http://www.lifetreks.com/lifetreks2/recurring.asp

  2. At least somebody else has tornado dreams tooI’m with you there. Just had another one last night where we were at my boyfriend’s house and i looked out the doors that were glass and there was this huge funnel and of course we all went in the basement with blankets around us.Then it went away and his parents insisted on going into town. So we drove in a SUV and quite a while ahead there was another little funnel. We got out of the car and I was trapped in it. I started floating in the tornado and looked up to see the sunsetIt just gets better every week
