Dream Journal

I don’t think that I have ever written about my obsession with dreams. From a young age, I have obsessed over the meaning of dreams, I had a few books from before the internet was a thing in which I would look up dream meanings and I even did a course on dreams in high school. It started when I began to realize that I would dream of something and then days, weeks, months, or sometimes years later, I’ll have this deja vu feeling and I’ll know that I have dreamt of this exact moment. I’m not quite as obsessive as I used to be, but every once in a while, I get such an interesting dream, I have to write it down, research the hell out of it to see if there is some deeper meaning.

The Dream:
Last night I had the best weirdest dream that Tony Stark (the Robert Downey Jr. version) was trying to kill me and he had thrown poisonous gas at me. I was staggering around, dying, until President Obama found me and went all bad ass hero and threw me into the passenger seat of his car and then cutting in and out of traffic, raced me to the White House where he had a team of doctors ready to save me.

The Meaning:
There seems to be a lot of meaning for poison out there in the dream world, but a lot of them seem to go back to the fact that if you are dreaming of poison, it means that you are in a poisonous relationship or in a poisonous atmosphere and should pay attention to the person who is poisoning you and/or the environment that you are in. It could also mean that some painful influence is going to immediately reach you.

To dream that someone is killing you is supposed to be an indication that you are perceiving a threat, or there is stress or a struggle that you are going through in your life. Or it could be an indication that you are feeling hurt or betrayed by the person who is killing you.
Furthermore, to see the killer in your dreams suggests a part of your emotions that has been cut off. The killer could be a manifestation of the things that you hate about yourself. Or they could be someone or something that is making you feel threatened. It is suggested that you examine the real life people and situations that most resembles the characteristics of your killer.

I also wanted to know if seeing a celebrity in your dreams had any meaning. Most of my research has indicated that the celebrity is a symbol of the characteristics or accomplishment or lack there of that we have attributed to that individual celebrity. Having dreams of people are harder to define as each dreamer perceives the same person differently, so this is very dependent on how you feel, or think about the celebrity.
Funny enough, I found one site that explained that if you dream about President Obama, it is a symbol that one wants to live a more honourable and highly respected life, that their life is going to be influenced by a great amount of change. To dream of a president in general is an indication that the dreamer needs to be more assertive or  diplomatic in their endeavour with others, especially in a professional grouping.

Finally, to dream of being saved means you need to look at areas of your life that requires saving. If in your dreams you are saved, this is a good omen that you will get the help you need, as long as you ask for it. Sometimes dreaming of being saved could also mean that there are areas in your life that you are ignoring.
There was also a little about someone who comes to save you who is supposed to, and this represents an expectation and perhaps your expectations are too high and you should consider if you’re asking too much of that person.
Another website said that to dream of being saved means that the person who saved you really cares about you. I highly doubt President Obama cares about me as an individual considering the fact that he doesn’t know me! But that was funny to read. But it also said that dreaming of being saved could mean that you may require immediate attention to your health or that you are under a lot stress because of someone or something and that your dream is a wish to resolve these issues.

If I take all of these things into consideration, it does make a little bit of sense based on what I am going through right now in my waking life. Anyway, sorry for the long post, but if you’ve made it to the end, I hope you enjoyed this post 🙂
