I had an experience a few weeks ago that I ALMOST put on my other blog, but I thought it would be more appropriate here. I think (and hope) you'll agree, and I'm looking for some feedback....maybe a lively discussion...or even posts if you've had something similar happen. Grab your fuzzy bathrobe, getcha funky turban on, and make an alcoholic bevvie. Or two.
First off, have you ever woke in your dream....still in a dream? As in, you wake up, you think you're up and then bam! turns out you're still dreaming and then you wake up for real.
I've had this happen several times in my life. In just about all of them, it went down kind of like this.....I'm dreaming about whatever, and then I wake up and I think I'm going about my business..usually just doing something mundane, something I've done a hundred times before....but I find whatever I'm trying to do, I just can't quite -seem to do it right, or I can barely remember how to do it. Like operate a cash register, or use my computer. I keep trying and trying and getting REALLY frustrated but it just won't work. And many times (why I have NO idea) there's a friggin bright light coming from somewhere that's in my eyes, and I'm having a really hard time trying to see or even keep my eyes open. My frustration builds and builds, and then I wake up. For Real. Usually thankful it was fake and relieved it's over.
Well, this time I woke up- and figured out I was dreaming- and went through this cycle. The first part, the actual real dream, a relative of mine had passed and I decided instead of the funeral, I would plant flowers outside this person's house in my own way of honoring them. A lot of my fellow nursing students were there helping, and also one of my instructors. It was a very peaceful (although sad) dream. Then as we were finishing, I realized we weren't outside the deceased person's house, but my grandmother's house. She came outside and looked around and found a pinecone in her yard. She was all, I just threw this thing out of my yard! And picked it up and threw it in her neighbor's yard. And then her neighbor came out of his house and guess what, yeah celebrity guest star, Kevin Spacey. And he's all, I just threw this in your yard! And then laughs. And then the insanity started.
I 'woke' in my bed, thinking about the dream, and realized that Kevin Spacey was in my room, and apparently someone else was too, because I was like,what is Kevin Spacey doing here? Then my bedroom filled up with relatives and friends, and this other young pregnant woman was there too. And I kind of had this feeling,like I know this woman from somewhere. So I went up to her and asked who she was, and she said, I'm your cousin. I felt like a dumbass but I said, I'm sorry, I don't remember your name, and she said it was Gabrielle- but I still didn't know her. But I had a weird 'Lost' moment (they were going back and forth in time on the show the week I had this dream) that she was related to me, but somehow she was from my past or my future. Then suddenly the room gets really crowded, and I'm standing so close to her I'm touching her. My hand touches her belly and I say, do you want to know the name of your baby? His name is Jacob. (more proof Lost had infiltrated my brain) but once I said that, this 'thing' in her stomach starts to move in a way that was not natural and I swear I heard it GROWLING. I'm all, holy mutha, and then BAM! I wake up.
I 'wake' up to hear all these weird sounds coming from my living room, and I yell to see if it's Papa Cash....hoping it is...when my friend C_ busts in the room and says, don't worry, it's just J (another friend of ours from school), she just got off work and she's taking a shower. (like this made perfect sense). I'm all, whew, you won't BELIEVE the night i'm having, C. All these freaking dreams....and I start telling her and BAM!
Yes I wake up Again. And Again. And AGAIN.
In one of these other 'wake-ups', I ask my friend C (who was in four of the six false wake ups) if I'm finally back in 'real life'. To which she says Yes, like why are you asking. I said 'Are you SURE this is real life?" To which she says Um Yeah I'm Sure! so I say omg thank GOD......all relieved.....then of course that's short lived.
So I had the false relief of waking up SIX times before this was over. Needless to say say I was freakin exhaused. Not to mention entirely creeped out. And what's really weird is when this all ended, it was almost 630 am. And I also seemed to recall seeing the clock in one or more of my false wake ups, and according to the time I saw then, all this took place in less than TEN MINUTES. So did I 'wake' up enough to be aware of the time? I'm not sure.
Anyone else ever have a 'false' wake up that really weirded them out? Ever have more than one? Ever have this many?
