Okay, so this is a little strange and it's been bugging me so I wanted to see what you guys think about it.
All my life I've had these epic action adventure "apocalypse" type dreams. Usually they involve an alien invasion or zombies or something to that effect. I'd say that over my life I've had 2-3 majorly epic ones a year. (the sort you think about for days after and just wake up like "WOW") I also have always had a variety of other vivid and beautiful dreams on many different topics and some completely random.
Well, I notice in the past 6 months or so, more specifically, the past month or two, I ONLY dream about the apocalypse. Ever. I have not had one dream of any sort other than a very epic, vivid, colorful "surviving the apocalypse" dream. These dreams almost never contain any characters that I know from this world. They are always random strangers who I grow very attached to and form friendships with during the dream. When I wake up, I miss these people and think about them as if they are real. I've even had dreams that continue where the previous ones left off with the same cast of characters and everything. It's just too freaky...
Now, at first I just figured this was happening because the apocalypse is one of my favorite subjects. Creatively and entertainment speaking, not so much that I really think about the actual apocalypse or am worried about it or anything. I just love that sort of story. I read books and watch movies about it a lot, and I'm working on a series of novels on the subject. So I understand why it's in my subconscious. But still...
Doesn't it seem weird that I would never, ever dream about anything else for months? While I'm into the subject, there are so many other things I'm into as well, such as my dancing, food, traveling, just all sorts of things that I never dream about. Only this.
I'm not in any way suggesting that these dreams are premonitions. As much as I'd enjoy the chance to try and survive the apocalypse in this world, I have rather given up that it's going to happen in my lifetime. I don't know what these dreams mean, but after waking up from another extremely vivid zombie apocalypse dream this morning, I really started to question it. It makes me wonder if I'm not even dreaming, but that I'm traveling astrally into another world or something. The people I'm with in these dreams... I just feel the most intense, real feelings for them. They feel real to me.
I don't really know what I'm asking. I guess I'm just wondering if anyone else has only dreamed about one subject for months and months and months like this?
