This tops as one of the most bizarre dreams I've ever had. Last night I had a dream within a dream. I can't remember all of it because I had another bizarre dream after it. I do recall feeling a cat's fur. At first I wasn't sure if it was a cat but was thinking that I was dreaming that I was petting a cat. I thought how odd that I can feel something so vividly in a dream...So I dreamed that I was dreaming of petting a cat. The fur feeling became more and more tactile and then I knew that I was petting my cat who died last year and I began to make him out in my vision. Then I was telling him, telepathically or verbally, that I loved him. He seemed okay.
The other part of the dream that I don't really remember had my ex in it. It was unpleasant in some way and I came out of the dream state. I do remember that I had a hard time coming out of it and it felt like two layers of whatever it is to get through to come back to the awaken state. I did wake up but not long enough to write it all down before I went back to sleep and had a horrible dream about guys doing too much work on my house (It is under contract now and the buyers want a lot of repairs that are stressing me out). They were taking my house apart. Two people I met at the Buddhist monastery were there telling me to watch out for those guys. Then my son was in the basement with a fire going. He looked just like me from behind (when I was younger with long curly hair). I started going around picking up pieces of wood to help his fire.
I'm not sure if they are related. The last one could just by my worry about the house situation. I think the fire is a good sign. The first one was just so weird!! I don't think I ever even remember feeling anything in a dream before. Any thoughts? Just wanted to share the strangeness of the night:)
And I do love the poem by Edgar Allen Poe but haven't been reading it lately...Oh my god...I have been thinking about how so many things seem to have passed away over the last decade of my life, which is what this poem is about...I've lost so much, people, pets, and now my house. I just realized that as I pasted this...and my old cat lived most all his life in the house I'm selling. I also got him from my ex.
All that we see or seem
One from the pitiless wave?
