I dream vividly every single night which is exactly why I don't
explore/examine them all (it would be too much)...but this one from last week stills feels so
real and like I dreamed it moments and not days ago.
Note: I pretty much only have two dream themes: 1, being lost/stuck in a big, indoor space. It used to be schools, then college, and the last five or six years it's turned into hotels, and 2, I'm in a house that is mine in the dream (I don't recognize it from the waking world) and it's always the same house but additions and changes subtly happen to it every time I go there. (Is it the same house, then? That's a whole separate philosophical debate right there...)
Anyway, this was the hotel one. It was huge and modern but also oddly dark. Lots of white walls but then all the doors and counters and accents would be black. The lighting was low and elegant but also strangely ominous (people look odd when lit from beneath). The place was chic and clean but it still gave me a weird feeling.
As always, I was searching for the pool (I'm always desperate to swim in these dreams) and for once I not only found but gained access to it! I wasn't in it long before too many people showed up so I got ready to leave. That's when I caught a weird vibe in the air. I was in the hallway leaving the pool area when I looked behind me and saw a man who obviously worked for the hotel (black pants, white button shirt and bow-tie, I think) put both his arms straight out, drop his head, and start chanting in tongues in a very low voice.
I felt the rumble of his words in my chest and I immediately tried to ~act natural~ and sidled up to a woman walking past me to make it look like we were friends (power in numbers) but then I realized she was one of them. I started moving faster and noticed more and more hotel staff all in a hypnotic trance and THEN I remembered I had Sooki in the room
. The panic hit me hard and I took off running for her and it was just a really sickening feeling, and then I woke up.
Hugged the hell
out of her that morning *lol*.
If my brain is going to torture me with hotel imagery it could at LEAST have the decency to include these two...( Collapse )
