Visiting A Family Owned Camp

Source: Wikipedia

I had more dreams last night but I ended up forgetting all of them except for part of my last dream, I think that the dream started in the past or was showing fictional memories of the past when I was a kid, and I had some fictional family members among my real family members from my mom’s side of the family.

I had a fictional aunt and uncle and cousins who lived out in the wilderness or forest in their own large one-story camp-like house a camp area with fields, lake or pond, rivers, multiple buildings including a cafeteria-like kitchen and dinning room, et cetera.

Our family would probably have family gatherings and family reunions and vacations there, I had positive memories of spending the night there with my cousins and other family members, and enjoying the outdoors.

The dream jumped to years later when I was an adult, my fictional aunt and uncle who owned the camp-like place were dead now, and most of their children (my fictional cousins) had grown up and left the camp so now only one of their daughters or someone else with dark brown skin with black hair and her children lived there.

To make money this daughter or woman used the camp as a place where people would pay to vacation, they would use the other buildings, and her and her family used the main house.

My dad, my dead grandfather CE (who was alive in this dream somehow, and somehow I did not remember that he was supposed to be dead), a young fictional cousin with white skin with red or orange hair in a bowl-cut style who was or looked like Junior Healy from the Problem Child films, a slightly over-fat woman with white skin with long yellow hair who seemed (in appearance and personality) to be a combination of Mrs. J (the mother of my sister-in-law JC) and our female neighbor at The B House and the actress Amy Schumer, maybe one of my brothers, maybe one or two more people, and I were going to visit and stay at the camp for the first time in years.

At some point I remember us arriving by boat to the dock, I remember traveling across some fields and across a shallow river, and I remember my dad and I helping my grandfather CE across the shallow river as the hybrid of Mrs. J and our female neighbor and Amy Schumer talked and seemed eager to have some fun.

We reached the camp and greeted my fictional female cousin and her kids, she took us inside the main house to show us to our rooms, but for some reason I was taken to the room where all of her many kids lived in a room with many twin-sized beds; and this was the room that I used to spend the night in as a kid.

I remember thinking about some of my many memories as we unpacked and as I talked with the others telling them how things used to be, I did not know any of the woman’s children, and so this was my first time meeting them.

There were other people we saw outside and near the other buildings on their vacations at the camp, mostly middle-to-upper class middle-age and old people with white skin and gray and white hair wearing relaxed summer clothing, but I woke up as the kids (my fictional cousins) and I were talking.

Me & Carrie Mathison & Frannie Mathison

I slept pretty well last night and I had some interesting dreams but I had one or more longer more detailed transitioning dreams that led to me forgetting most of my dreams except for part of the end of my last dream which was an interesting detailed transitioning dream, but my memory of it is a bit unclear so expect missing details and errors and for things to be out-of-order.

I think that the dream started during the day in a fictional city inside an apartment building where I lived with some of my family and some other people, I was a close friend of the character Carrie Mathison from the television series Homeland, and some of my family and some of the other people and I would take care of her baby (probably her daughter Frannie Mathison) when she would be gone for long periods of time in dangerous conditions.


Verbal Conflict Between Kingdoms Ruled By The Same Family | A Floating Shack Falls Apart In A Small Pond

Source: Wikimedia Commons

I had several dreams last night but I forgot most of them after waking up several times probably because I was using too many pillows, and so I only barely remember part of two dreams.

Dream 1

The first dream was pretty clear but unfortunately I have forgotten most of it and so it is so unclear that it does not make sense to me now, but I think that the dream took place during the day in a slightly familiar dream world that is sometimes in my dreams with slight variations each time; but usually this dream world almost always has warring small factions/groups/kingdoms/countries/et cetera who live next to each other.

I think that in this dream several members of the same family probably ruled separate small kingdoms that were next to each other and as usual there was a conflict between the ruling family members, but the situation was probably mostly verbal warfare instead of physical warfare between their kingdoms because they were part of the same family; and their family’s code helped to prevent warfare between family members from occurring so easily.

I was in one of the kingdoms at a building that might have been a castle and/or a public building with a large modern cafeteria on the first floor, and I remember eating/drinking/talking in the nice large modern cafeteria with other people; and I think that my former classmate DH was there and maybe a few other people I know.

During parts of the dream I remember hearing and/or seeing guards and ruling family members talking about the verbal conflicts, and I even heard/saw some verbal arguments between ruling family members; and I think that the ruling family had a slight Saudi Arabian-like style or something like that but I could be wrong, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

The second dream took place during the day in my parent’s yard and I was in the yard, and the outside of the yard in the field where my parent’s garden should be was a small pond; and some fictional kids with medium-to-dark brownish colored skin with blackish colored hair were playing not far from the fictional pond.

My parent’s had an old floating shack in the pond that was made of wood and tin and maybe a few automobile tires probably, and at some point I went to look at the floating shack to see if I could maybe live inside of it probably; and I remember a few of the kids in the area walking over to talk to me, and so I briefly talked with them until they ran off to continue playing with their friends.

The floating shack was moving around like it was not anchored anymore and so something seemed to be wrong, and so I could not reach it open the door to look inside; and so I waited as it floated around the pond depending on which direction the wind blew, and then the floating shack started to fall apart in the water.

I was a bit surprised by this even though the shack did look old and a young woman/female teenager with light brownish colored skin with dark brownish colored hair walked up to me, and she stood there with me as the floating shack fell apart; and she told me a few things about the floating shack, maybe she was my fictional sister or a fictional family member or a fictional person I knew, but I am not sure.

I was disappointed that I did not get a chance to look inside of the floating shack and I started trying to collect the pieces of the floating shack so that maybe we could rebuild it or at least use the pieces to build something else, but I woke up as we tried to collect the pieces.

My memory is unclear but this dream seemed to be very symbolic and there was something about the pond, about how the environment looked (maybe like a slightly cloudy/might rain day that looked a bit dream-like/surreal, but I am not sure), about what happened to the shack, about the young woman/female teenager and what she said, et cetera that makes me think that this dream was symbolic and was not literal.

Playing Strange Games With My Cousin DE And Nora Sergeant And My Brother GC And My Fictional Sister

I barely remember part of four dreams from last night with three of the four dreams involving me playing strange games with people, the last dream was the only dream that did not involve me playing strange games with people, and the first dream took place during the day in an unknown fictional building in an unknown fictional city in a hotel fitness-like room maybe but I am not sure what kind of room it was exactly or what kind of building it was.

I was in the room with my cousin DE and we were playing a strange game (not a video game, we were really doing this) where we both had to get on an exercise-like bike peddling it together while having to do various challenges/follow various rules, and one of the challenges/rules was that we had to weigh each other with a scale while peddling the exercise-like bike; and we had to use a certain mathematical formula with our combined weight to answer a math problem or something strange like that.

We had other challenges/rules that we had to complete/follow, and I think that some people/men were watching us/were the people over the game who made the rules/challenges; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The second dream is confusing and it took place in a bathroom and a bathtub I think and I was in the bathtub with Nora Sergeant from the TV show Being Human (Syfy) but I do not think that we were naked at first but I could be wrong, and I think that the bathroom was similar to the bathroom at my grandfather’s house next to the kitchen but it was probably bigger; and maybe we were at a slightly fictional version of my grandfather’s house, but I am not sure where we were exactly.

We were playing a strange game (that might have been part video game-like and part real-life/whatever but I am not sure, but I do know that it was part real-life/whatever where Nora and I were really part of the game/playing the game in person) in the bathtub, but I can not remember the rules of the game exactly or what the game was called; but I do remember that we had to figure out ways to defeat various threats.

Once again it seemed that Nora and I were either married or dating because we both were super comfortable around each other again, and we acted like we were married or dating again; and it felt like we were married or dating again, and once again we were very close in a way that felt very realistic and our bond/connection was very strong.

I can not remember most of the dream but I do remember Nora coming up with a surprise plan/strategy to defeat the threats, and her strategy/plan worked; and we defeated the threats and we won the game I guess, and maybe we celebrated/made out and took a bath together since the entire dream took place in a bathtub.

I know that Nora and I had a very good time in the dream/bathtub, but that is all that I can remember of this dream unfortunately.

The third dream involved another strange game that was similar to the game in/from the second dream, and this dream was even stranger/more confusing; and it took place during the night at what seemed to be a slightly fictional version of my grandfather’s house where my family and I seemed to be staying, but once again my grandfather did not seem to be in the dream oddly.

Like in the second dream this game took place in a bathtub but the bathtub was really a pond this time oddly, and even more strange was that the pond/bathtub was in a fictional room where the breakfast room near the kitchen should be; and to make things even more strange/confusing the room was really an outdoor/indoor area similar to the area near my aunt JE’s house by the clothesline, and so there was grass around the pond/bathtub.

I was in the pond/bathtub playing a similar strange game to/from the second dream where I had to defeat various threats, once again it was probably part real-life/whatever and maybe part video game-like, and maybe it was more video game-like at first with me controlling a character who was in the pond/bathtub as I stood near the pond/bathtub but I am not sure.

I remember me and/or my character defeating various threats in the pond, at some point while I and/or my character was finishing off some threats a boss came from under the water by surprise behind me and/or my character; and the boss looked a bit like a very long alligator mixed with the cartoon dinosaur Reptar from the animated TV show Rugrats, and it defeated me and/or my character with its surprise attack and so I lost the game.

I got out of the pond/bathtub and/or I started walking off to leave, but my brother GC and my fictional sister (who was probably older than my brothers D&D but younger than my brother CC, but I can not remember what she looked like) came into the room to play the game; and our fictional sister seemed to be a replacement for my brother CC who was not in the dream, and I forgot to mention that my parent’s and my brothers D&D were sleep during this dream.

My brother GC and my fictional sister got into the pond/bathtub, and so I got in as well; and we all started playing separate games at first I think or we all played together and we each picked a certain area in the pond/bathtub to defend, and I remember us fighting various threats in our areas of the pond/bathtub.

We were having fun and doing very well, at some point we defeated all the threats, and then it was time for us to fight the boss; and so we got out of the pond/bathtub to avoid a sneak attack as the boss started to rise from under the pond/bathtub.

I only got a brief glance at the boss as he/it was rising up from under the water, it/he was a very large/strong/tall/powerful freak/scary/demonic/whatever-looking maybe glowing reddish colored humanoid-like fake devil-like creäture with horns maybe and he/it had arms but I am not sure how many it had, but it/he scared/freaked us out so much that we ran for our lives before it was even finished rising from under the water (so we did not get to see most of its body to know what it was or what it looked like clearly); but I am not sure why we got so scared/freaked out, maybe it/he had special powers to cause extreme fear in its/his opponents, who knows.

I just know that we were so scared/freaked out that we ran as fast as we could for our lives in complete fear/panic, this no longer felt partly video game-like and it felt realistic, and I asked my brother GC and my fictional sister what about our sleeping parent’s and our sleeping brothers D&D; but they said that we had no time to warn them/that we could not save them/that they would probably be okay because they were sleep.

I continued running even though I was worried about my sleeping family members, I/we were that scared/afraid, and we ran through the kitchen/through the hallway/through the living room/out the back door slamming the door behind us/through the yard/out my grandfather’s back gate slamming it behind us/through the alley/through my parent’s wooden gate slamming it behind us/past the pet cages/through my parent’s metal gate slamming it behind us/through the yard/to the back door but we had no key to get inside/and into the other side of the yard to hide.

We were terrified, we had no keys, no weapons, no armor, no phones, and so we could not even call our family to warn them or call for help; and so we stood in our parent’s yard hiding on the other side of the house trying to decide what to do next, and I once again mentioned our family who were still sleeping because I was worried about the boss getting them.

Once again my brother GC and my fictional sister said that there was nothing that we could do to help them and that they were probably okay because they were sleep, but I still wanted to at least warn them about the boss but we needed a phone; and so I started trying to figure out if we should find a way inside my parent’s house so that we could call them to warn them and/or should we find some weapons/armor and go fight the boss and/or get our sleeping family members out of the house, but I accidentally woke myself from the dream because of the fear/panic/stress/et cetera.

The fourth/last dream was the only dream that did not involve a strange game, I was at a slightly fictional version of my parent’s house during a gray day with my family, and the house was bigger with more rooms and the layout was different; and at some point from the kitchen window I saw a car park by our mailbox and my cousin DE, my dead cousin AE, and one or two other real and/or fictional female cousins of mine got out of the car and they came to our door.

They were let inside the house by me and/or someone else in the house and I greeted them and we briefly talked, and then they went around the house greeting each person in my family one-at-a-time and briefly talking with them; but I woke up as they were doing this.

It was not until after I woke up did I realize that my dead cousin AE was supposed to be dead, in the dream I forgot that she was dead in real life, and so in the dream it was like she really was still alive and happy; and so everything seemed normal in the dream, and everyone was happy.

A Sleep / Dream Study? | A Boy Almost Drowns In A Pond | My Grandfather’s House Getting Robbed On Father’s Day

At some point during the night my body started to jerk/move in a sudden strong movement causing me to instantly wake up from several dreams randomly during the night, these sudden strong jerks of my body were strong enough to jerk me out of my dreams instantly but oddly I would not jump up in bed or out of bed, and so I forgot some of my dreams and parts of some of the dreams that I remember part of because of these random strong jerks of my body causing me to wake up instantly from several dreams.

I do not know why this kept happening sometimes during the night (sleep apnea(?), snoring, something scaring my body in the real world, my body/mind wanting to wake up for a certain reason(s), maybe it started after the sleep / dream study dream, who knows?)  I would wake up instantly feeling that my body just jerked me awake (the last time that this happened I saw that I had drooled on my pillow case, nasty), and then I would go back to sleep; and the dream would either continue or another dream would start, most of the dreams might have continued, but that is my guess.

Dream 1

One dream might have involved a school during the day, I remember talking with my former classmate AM, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

A second dream might have involved my brother GC’s cat named Dawn and her five kittens outside during the day, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

A third dream might have involved an unknown woman with whitish colored skin with long hair approaching me while I was walking outside in an unknown location during the day or afternoon or evening or on a gray day, and I think that the woman talked with me; and she probably asked me to take part in a sleep and/or dream study.

I remember saying that sounded interesting and that was something that I have been interested in having done/taking part in one day, but that I could not afford something like that but that I would probably do it if it was free and/or if I was getting paid; and maybe the woman said that it was free and/or that I would get paid, but I can not remember.

I remember telling her about some of the sleep/dream phenomenon/experiences/skills/et cetera that I had like: being able to remember more of my dreams and more details of my dreams than the average person, recording more of my dreams than the average person, lucid dreams, sleep paralysis, dreams within dreams, semi-dreams/semi-daydreams, possible sleep apnea, occasional snoring, occasional talking in my sleep, occasional moving in my sleep, occasional dreaming of what is happening in the real world around my body, and other things like that so that she could see if I was the type of person that they/she were/was looking for to do a sleep/dream study on.

She probably told me that I was the exact type of person that they were looking for, I probably agreed to the sleep/dream study, and I probably followed her to the location where the sleep/dream study would take place; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 4

A fourth dream took place during the day in D at a slightly fictional version of the DY Baseball Field(s) outside of the entrance by the caged area where the pitchers and batters practice before games, and near the entrance there was a fictional small pond; my dad was probably watching a baseball game, a younger version of my brother KD was by the pond, a little boy with whitish colored skin with short blondish colored hair was also by the pond, and I was by the pond as well.

At some point a ball that could float was/landed in the pond and I tried to get it for my brother KD, but I fell into the pond when I failed to jump far enough to reach a pipe or something near the edge of the pond; and the water was very brown/dirty as usual and a bit scary at first, but we all started to laugh.

The little boy wanted to jump into the pond too, he thought that I jumped into the pond on purpose (which was incorrect), and so I told him not to jump into the pond trying to explain that I fell in by accident and that it was too dangerous to swim in the pond especially without his parent’s watching him; but the boy did not listen to me, and he jumped into the pond as well.

Two young men and a young woman who probably knew the boy came running to the pond happily, and they jumped into the pond as well; and I threw my brother KD the ball, and I started swimming to the other side of the pond so that I could climb out of the pond as the young people jumped in and out of the pond as the boy continued swimming in the pond.

I swam past the boy as he was going under the water to swim, I reached the other side of the pond and I climbed out, but when I looked back at the pond the boy still had not come up from under the water; and so I started to worry about him, and I started asking the young people if they saw him and they did not see him now either.

I jumped back in the water with the young people and we tried to look for the boy but the water was too brown/dirty to see and debris/dirt/et cetera in the water kept irritating/getting into my eyes, I knew that we did not have much time to find the boy, and so I probably sent my brother KD to get my dad/help; and the young woman probably called emergency services with her mobile phone, but I woke up when my body jerked me awake.

I went right back to sleep and the dream continued with only a slight time jump where my dad had come to help, he jumped into the water, he found the boy under the water, and he pulled the boy out of the water as the boy’s parent’s (who also had whitish skin with blondish/brownish colored hair wearing t-shirts and pants) arrived panicking along with maybe a police officer as the ambulance was close to arriving.

The boy was not responding, I remember angrily wondering why the parents were not watching their son earlier, and I hoped that my dad’s special hit-you-hard-in-the-back technique would work to save the boy; and so my dad hit the boy in the top of his back with an open palm strike, and the boy woke up vomiting water/et cetera so it worked.

The boy was alive and his parent’s probably hugged him as the ambulance was approaching, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

And now that I am awake I see that this dream is somewhat similar to when my dad saved me in real life when I almost drowned at a swimming pool on vacation when I was a kid, and he used that same open palm strike that caused me to vomit the water/et cetera out (he pulled me out of the pool right before I lost consciousness, fortunately he was in the swimming pool with me as I was drowning, unlike the parent’s in the dream or I would not be here today (I partly/sometimes wish that I would have died that day, after the initial panic almost drowning/drowning was not so bad, and it was very peaceful near the end as I was about to lose consciousness as I sank further under water into the darker parts of the water as I saw rays of light coming down into the water from the sun; it was very nice, it was something that you have to experience yourself to know what it was like, I can still feel it somewhat today just thinking about it and I wish that I could feel/experience that again, in a way it felt like going home like that is where I really belong and/or where I rather be and/or where I was born or came from and/or something like that where it almost feelings like it is calling me home just thinking about it and I want to return to that place)).

Dream 5

My fifth/last dream took place during the day in D on Father’s Day I think and I was walking from my parent’s yard to my grandfather’s yard when I saw/heard a man cutting the grass with a push-mower by the G House near by grandfather’s yard, and I thought that it was my uncle CE at first but then I thought that it was my brother KD because the man was younger and he probably was wearing a black colored do-rag; but when I got closer I realized that he was not my brother KD, and it was an unknown young man with light-to-medium brownish colored skin with probably black colored hair.

Next to the young man cutting grass was another unknown man standing there with medium brownish colored skin with short black colored hair, I did not know them but I assumed that they were some indirect family members who I never met before, and that they were visiting/helping my grandfather because it was Father’s Day; and so I waved at them and smiled, and I walked into my grandfather’s yard.

The two men walked into the yard and they greeted me before I could reach my grandfather’s door so I walked over to them, they wanted me to unlock my grandfather’s door for them, but I did not know them so I tested them to see if I could trust them or not; and I asked them if they were family members, they said yes, and I asked them how were they related to me but they refused to answer my question and I instantly knew that they had lied about being family members & that they could not be trusted.

I told them that I did not know them and I nicely asked them to leave, and I started walking off pretending that I was going to leave; but I really was waiting to see what they would do next so that I could decide if I needed to call the police or not, but as I was pretending to walk away I heard my grandfather’s door open to my surprise.

I turned around to see the two men entering my grandfather’s house and so I sneaked in after them, in the living room I saw my grandfather on the ground holding his chair trying to get up like someone had knocked him to the ground, and I asked him if he was okay; but I heard three voices coming from the kitchen, and so I sneaked outside the kitchen and I glanced inside the kitchen.

I saw the two men and a third man who had dark brownish colored skin with short black colored braids or dreadlocks, they were smiling/laughing/talking about how this was going to be easy, and it sounded like they were talking about how they were going to divide whatever they were going to steal from my grandfather’s house; and somehow they did not see me, and so I sneaked outside leaving my grandfather (which I did not want to do, but I did not want to alert the thieves or put my grandfather in more danger) and I called emergency services with my mobile phone.

A female worker answered the phone and I quickly told her my name, the situation, gave a description of the thieves, I gave her the address, and I asked her to send the police now; but she asked me to repeat my name again about two times, and she wanted to waste time asking each question in order but I told her that there was no time for that and I repeated the overview of the situation while asking for the police to be send immediately but she kept wanting to waste time going over each question slowly.

I tried to talk quietly so the thieves could not hear me outside and I tried to decide what should I do until the police came, because I did not want them to escape and I wanted to get some video/audio of them first in case they did escape, and so while I talked with the female worker trying to get her to send the police I struggled trying to decide what to do because I hated leaving my grandfather in his house alone on the floor with the thieves robbing the house; but if they saw me I feared that they would attack and hurt my grandfather as I fought them and/or they would run and escape and never get caught, but I woke up as I started to get stressed.
