I had a rather strange dream last night. I was with my husband and we walked through an empty green field, I was wearing jeans a jumper and trainers on my feet, my husband was dressed in a similar manner. We then climbed through some wire fencing and then through another filed this one was ploughed and for some reason I had taken off my trainers and was carrying them, the furrows where really deep, the ground was horrible and boggy, like a beehive furrow gone wrong, I was wearing white short socks that where getting filthy as we walked across this field.
Once we had crossed the ploughed field we where looking up at a really sheer hill that was at least a mile in height, it had no grass and was covered in what appeared to be coal dust or coloured like coal dust. I put my trainers back onto my feet and as I started to climb this steep hill it was rolling down like gravel under my feet. At this point I was woken up by my mobile phone.
At no point in this dream was I under any undue stress, I was not out of breath or having any physical difficulties. Other people where walking the same route all around us, I couldn’t see their faces but knew they where all adults just simply walking the same route as us, none had yet gone up the steep hill ahead of us and we where all moving at around the same pace. It was as though we where all trying to get to whatever was at the top of the steep hill or just beyond it.
What I cannot get out of my head is the fact I do not know what was at the top of the steep hill or if we would have all made it to the top. I found it odd that no-one was actually helping anyone else along the way, it was like a mindless amble along a path to what I have no idea, there was no bright light at the top of the hill, but there was a beautiful rainbow above it, with a beautiful partial rainbow alongside the main rainbow, although what I felt we where all walking towards was beyond the rainbow ends.
I saw no other living creatures apart from humans along the way, and nobody spoke, it was all in complete silence which is what made the dream feel so wrong in a strange sort of way, like I knew the other creatures where missing and the silence was so wrong but couldn’t work out why this was. Silence has a sound all of its own and for this reason I knew there was nothing wrong with my hearing.
Do our dreams actually mean anything at all, can they be a warning or some kind of premonition or not, it is a fact that we all dream even when we don’t remember what we have dreamt, there could be more to our dreams than we think.
