Last night I had several dreams but I can not remember most of them, since recently I have done volunteer work almost each day I guess you could say & dealing with other things, and so I have been forgetting more of my dreams; but I still have several dreams every night.
Last night during the dream I am about to mention, I did not realize that I was dreaming, and so I remember telling myself/reminding myself in the dream to type about my helping / volunteering with the firefighters, because I thought that I was in the real world. 😀
The dream is unclear, but I remember going to a fire station at some point in an unknown place, where some firefighters worked; and something happened that was either a major storm and/or some strange event that caused us to lock ourselves inside of the fire station.
I remember us being worried about something and trying to limit our exposure to the outside world, but I am not sure why I went to the fire station in the first place; my guess is that it was to volunteer to see what it is like to be a firefighter and/or I got caught in the event outside & the fire station was the nearest safe place at the time, but I am not sure.
I remember meeting the firefighter in charge and the fire fighters who were several men & several women, and maybe a few other people who came to the fire station with me and/or for safety.
The dream was a longer dream with more detail & dialogue than usual, it was like a disaster movie in dream form or something but realistic, but I have forgotten most of the dream unfortunately; but it was an interesting dream spending so much time talking with & helping other dream characters.
The other dream characters and I got to know & trust each other as we were forced together inside the fire station and as we had to work together to figure out what to do & how to survive & help people.
Some strange things happened outside and inside the fire station that were possibly going on in not only a minor way in our location but also some of the events probably were going on in a major way not only just in our location but maybe in the city, state, country, and world, but I can not remember what happened, unfortunately; but at some point it was safe enough for us to go outside again at the end of the dream.
The dream had a lot of mystery, suspense, drama, realistic parts, and the dream characters & I learned & developed as the dream went on.
Besides the things that were going on outside the fire station, the dream explored the struggles between us dream characters as we had to deal with that & each other & how we had to deal with the outside world as we struggled to make sense of the situation & survive & help people; and there were several layers to the events outside & inside that were strange, but I can not remember them.
I got to know some of the other dream characters since we spent much time inside the fire station together, and I remember telling them that I wanted to start volunteering at their fire station and the fire fighter in charge said that he would allow me to volunteer.
I might be mistaken but I think that during some of the strange events inside & outside of the fire station, that the fire fighters in charge were changed at some point, either from death or injury or loss of confidence or some other strange reason.
It was at the end of the dream when it was finally safe enough to go outside, that I told/reminded myself to type about my experiences on my blog when I got to a computer, because I did not realize that I was dreaming since the dream was so realistic, even though some strange things happened; but I woke up as we walked outside thinking & talking & looking around to see the aftermath of whatever had happened.
Thanks to Ms. Robin, I remembered part of something that happened between waking & sleeping, this morning.
I woke up partly in bed still about half asleep and I was going back & forth between waking & sleeping feeling slow & still tired & I could barely move & things appeared to be moving slower.
I am not sure if I saw this part in a dream state or a waking state, but I remember seeing the framed print of The Young Shepherdess painting that I have on the wall above my bed seemed to possibly be somewhat moving or it was just the slow blurry effect that I saw as I was going between waking & sleeping; and it appeared that she was somehow trying to communicate with me, but things were moving slower & blurry & I was in & out of various states.
I would open & close my eyes trying to look up as I went back & forth between waking & sleeping, and there was this blurry barrier-like effect that I would see that made her seem to slightly be moving like she was trying to tell me something but it was too hard for her to move & she could not talk & so I was going to have to touch the print to communicate with her it seemed; and so I tried to slowly move toward the print to touch it, but things were moving slow & I was going between various states & so it was hard.
I kept trying, and at some point I finally touched my hand on the back of her hands in the print which is covered by glass & so I was touching the glass, and then I moved my hand away after about two or three seconds expecting some information to start appearing in my mind or something; and then I lay there in an awake state for a moment.
I went in & out of waking & sleeping but I can not remember anything else except that I tried touching the print again at some point; but that is all that I can remember, except that I finally went back into a normal fully awake state at some point without the strange effects.
