Like many others on EP, I pay very close attention to my dreams and have for years now.
Repeating themes and settings seem to be a broken record habit that my dreams seem to take. Continuous dreams about tornadoes always somehow involving my father and myself struggling to survive, zombie pandemics, a variety of other survival dreams constantly plague my nights.
I've noticed that it's rare that I ever have a calm dream with light feelings. There maybe one good aspect in these dreams, or nightmares if you will, but other than one hint of light they are mostly an intense action driven movie- one that would make Bruce Willis head spin.
It's not that I mind these dreams- part of me actually enjoys the opportunity to experience something that would never ever happen. These dreams don't cause me to lose sleep, they just cause me to daydream about what they could be telling me. What is it that I'm suppose to be taking from these dreams? I must be missing the point if my brain feels compelled to repeat these themes.
