I have been making it a point lately to write down my dreams, or at least as much of them as I can remember when I wake up. I have never sought understanding of what they might mean. And I don't write them done now to try and understand them. But there have been some doozies lately. It is an effort to try and draw out some of the imagery that I see in that less than awake place.
I have been doing this exercise for roughly a month now. Granted I don't always remember the dreams. But I do find that the more I do the exercise, I am able to capture more details.
One of my favorite dreams recently involved a zombie attack. In the dream they were held at bay by walls made of bars, similar to old school jail cell walls. Another aspect of this dream was a zombie hunting weapon. Picture a crossbow that used a pod instead of a single bolts. When fired this pod would explode into a large number of bolts impaling a block of the walking dead.
This dream came when I haven't been watching any kind of zombie shows or movies. It can be interesting where our minds take us at times.
Have you ever explored your dreams? Any interesting dreams that stuck with you after waking?
