Recurring emotional dream
I don't know much about dreams or their meanings behind them so maybe someone can help me. At least lately I've been waking up after dreams, that I don't feel like are finished, and feel the burdens of such strong negative emotions, such as sadness or anger or fear, as if I was really going through the trauma in the physical of whatever was happening. It feels so real. I'll wake up fearful or crying.
I keep having this recurring dream where it seems to be a chaotic world I'm living in. I don't necessarily feel its an "end of the world" dream. But I know I feel like I'm running from something bad or hiding. I keep specifically remembering picking up these pictures I had taken and its a huge stack of them and they all look very similar. They are of a swamp with very big cypress trees and the trees have that hanging moss. The sky is red/orange at the horizon and then fades to dark gray clouds closer to the "photographer", which is me. There is obviously a bunch of water. I remember also being with my brother this time (the last dream, I wasn't) and we are packing our backpacks and for some reason I stuff my cat in my backpack. I just remember feeling terrified that I might not be able to take her. The recurring parts are the pictures and the setting of chaotic world. Everything else is different. I remember walking out of wherever my brother and I were staying at that night which was a cave like structure straight into a field with dead grass that was as tall as I was. I remember the sky looked exactly like the sky in the cypress pictures. Then I woke up. But it felt unfinished. But I feel like this dream I had is a continuation of the dream I had earlier. Can anyone relate to this?The dreams started about a month ago.
