Forgive me if this isn’t where it should be. I did browse through the big remembering topic, however it seemed to be geared towards remembering dreams than recognising signs while dreaming.
I have no problem remembering my dreams, and I recently restarted my dream journal. However, I can not seem to recognise any form of signs when dreaming. They become so obvious to me once I wake up that it’s frustrating that I never see them while asleep. Let me give you an example.
In my most recent dream, I was at school in a forest. This was a regular brick school building in a clearing, with ramps at the front of the school which were the only access to the various floors. So far already 2 huge things that I should have picked up right away. Not only do I no longer attend school; it has been many years since I set foot in a proper forest. I mean trees as far as the eye could see, no sign of civilisation outside this one clearing.
Anyway, to make things even more obvious, only 1 person in the entire class had a distinct face, a Nickelodeon actress. Everybody else had blurred faces and it’s needless to say that she was the focus point of this dream.
I don’t recall once seeing a teacher despite us all being sat at desks in a classroom environment. No bell rang but we all knew that it was time to leave the room. After class she suggested we venture to the top floor of the building; which was supposedly not in use. I’m sure I can skip the details from here on but long story short we ended up having sexual intercourse in this abandoned room at the top floor, which has puzzled me since I woke up as I have never thought of this person in any sexual manner whatsoever.
It’s very frustrating for me that I was unable to pick up any of this, as this is by no means my average day (oh if only). I have browsed the dreamsign threads and will continue to do so, but if anyone has any specific tips to get this sorted I’d very much appreciate it.
