In most of my dreams, I am myself, and I am dreaming about my family, or at least people that I know in real life. I am usually trying really hard to get somewhere in my dreams. I am not sure what that signifies exactly, but it seems to be a fairly constant part, no matter what the actual dream is about. Sometimes, I am chopping my way through underbrush, and other times, I am desperately trying to get my kids safely to the top of a mountain to escape a flood that keeps rising behind us. I usually have very large houses in my dreams, and some of them seem to re-appear over and over, even though they do not exist anywhere except in my dreams, and are not anything like any house I have ever been inside of. One of the strangest things is when I am dreaming, and I seem to be someone else besides myself. I don't know any of the people in my dream, although in the dream I know who they are. One time, I was some kind of a jet pilot, and was happily flying around in some kind of a spaceship with an enormous control panel on the front. I knew exactly how to fly it and what all of the buttons and gadgets were for. Now, in real life, I seriously hate flying, and am totally useless about any kind of mechanical things; so it really made me wonder where a dream like that even came from. Does anyone else have dreams where you are someone else that is totally unknown to you ? What do you think it means to dream something like that even ?
