I don't know about you, but I've heard that when you dream, the dream is in black and white. I have very vivid dreams, in color. Some so real I can smell and touch things. They play out like a drama, very clear, very story like. I hardly do dream, but when they happen they are very closely related to the conscious world.
I was very close with my sister's cat growing up. He always kept me company while I worked in the yard and he would sleep next to me at night. Even after my fiancé moved in with me and my family he would crawl on the bed and curl up on her stomach, right in his spot. She would always be upset that he was on her when she would wake up.
Several years ago my fiancé and I married and moved away from my childhood home. Sadly we could not take him along with us, no pets allowed. I would visit occasionally, but work and other duties kept me from seeing him as much as I wanted. A couple of years ago I had a dream of him!
In my dream I was in my living area cleaning, as if I was preparing to entertain, and I hear my sister's cat calling. Meow! Mau! I look up and see him on the walk way of the building directly across from us. I call "Hey, my boy!" he turns and sees me, but he falls between the railings to the walkway below. I then took off out my apartment to the cement walk below and put him on my lap. He looked at me and closed his eyes. I could feel his soft fur between my fingers and I awoke teary eyed.
I told my wife of the dream and she told me "Maybe we should go visit him." Later that day my older sister calls and as I'm about to tell her we were stopping by she interrupts with "The cat died..." She knew how close I was with him and she broke it to me ever so tactfully. "Someone in the neighborhood poisoned him. I can't find him, but I knew he was sick yesterday." I couldn't believe it. I got upset and told her "Why didn't you call earlier, when you saw him?" Oh well, I'm glad he came to see me before he left. I still miss him to this day.
My wife and I are expecting our first soon! We were impatiently waiting for the ultra sound to find out our babies sex. The morning of the doctor's appointment I have this dream.
In my dream my wife and I are waiting on a sidewalk entry way into a park. We look out to the parking lot and see my wife's mom walking toward us holding hands with a child. As she gets closer I can see the child better.
It was a fiery red headed, fair skinned girl. She was so excited to see us; she had such a cute smile on her face. I bent over to take her as she ran closer to us. Just as she got to me she quickly "bee lined" to my wife's leg with her face buried into her hip. I said "You little rat!" She turned back to me and smiled slyly. "Get over here!" She came to me. I picked her up and held her in the sun light where her hair began changing between Blond, red, and brown. It looked like fire.
I awake from my dream very happy. I wanted a girl badly and my dreams have a tendency to show what is about to take place, good things. I was excited all day long, all my co workers were eager to find out as well. 3:30pm, time to go to our appointment! The doctor rubs the ultra sound thing on my wife's belly to check on baby. "So doctor, boy or girl?" He replied "Can't tell yet, baby is playing hard to get... If it's a girl, that's how I'd want her!" He laughs at his joke and I nodded in agreement. "Well, well... Looks to be a girl."
I was so relieved. My wife and I have been looking forward to this. Now she can buy the proper clothes for baby and now I can have peace of mind of knowing it'll be a girl. We decided to name our baby after both of her grandmothers. Now it's a matter of time before we meet her!
My wife has very interesting dreams as well. When she would dream of a small shark, or sharks, we'd later find out that one of our siblings were having a baby. When I would dream about my teeth falling out or being rotten one of our family members would die. Do any of you have dreams that tie in with life or death?
