I have a recurring dream (with some variations here and there) that I have been dreaming for almost 20 years. I am hiking in the mountains with either friends or family. The trail takes us along a narrow trail next to a steep drop to a river far down below (the river is always to my right). The mountainside looks like a National Geographic photo and the skies are clear. The path becomes more and more treacherous, but we keep going.
At one stage, the path is so narrow that I am forced to hug the cliff wall and edge ahead slowly and carefully. In some dreams I start falling, but since I know I can fly in dreams, I usually just slow my descent to a crawl and land safely below. If I fall, the dream diverts to other topics here. If I manage to keep on the trail, we keep hiking and eventually reach a steep climb that takes us higher up into the mountains.
We clamber over the black rock exposed here and, eventually, the trail leads to a massive cliff face. The river falls (always to my right) at least 300 metres to a deep pool. To get to the other side of the waterfall, there is a swing that is hooked over a protruding rock nearby. The edge is slippery here, but I can’t remember falling even once.
Despite having a crippling fear of heights, I get onto the swing and take the dizzying dive to the other side. If I land beyond the pool, I stand in hip-high grass and I look back to where the swing is, once again, hooked on the rock by the end of the trail. Other times I simply fall into the pool and swim to the edge.
In variations, I’m in a boat on the river. I don’t think I’ve ever dreamt as far as the waterfal in those dreams.
It is better if you get your dream analyzed. Try to read about it. It is suggesting you something and you have to take a cue from it.
At this point in time, that dream represents my writing career and is very encouraging. I have no idea if it is still applicable, but I’d like to think so. 🙂
hmm sounds good. keep writing. ask for help. many will offer it. including me!~
I also have this dream, only I start on a highway, it becomes a narrow path and then ends up as a hiking train along a very steep mountain side. I have the mountain on my left and the ocean on my right. There are glistening, wet dolphins jumping out of the water to look at my journey…
