I've decided to use my blog as a dream journal as well.
On this post, though, I'm not going to talk about a current dream.
I've actually been having this dream for a good chunk of my life, and I'm not sure what it means.
The last time I dreamed about this was a couple months ago.
Anyway, I'll fall asleep and I'll find myself in a huge wooded area. In this dream I always appear as a little girl, no more than 6 years of age. I'll start walking and I'll feel as if someone is following me. I then come upon a small playground in the middle of the woods. It's just there. No paths, no houses, no nothing. It looks so out of place.
At this point I start walking towards the playground. It's not like I want to play in it or anything, it's just that an overwhelming feeling of curiosity comes over me, like something is there that I have to find. It suddenly gets dark as I come closer to the playground. Darker and darker until I'm in the middle of it. I see a pool of water in front of me. The full moon that had so unexpectedly appeared made it shimmer. It looks very beautiful. I walk towards the water and notice someone standing just beyond the pool, dressed in all black. It feels as though the person wants me to come closer but I can't reach them because I have an immense fear of swimming in the dark. (Yes, I am a pitiful child.) So then I see the person actually walking over the water towards me. I become scared and I wake up.
Every time I dream of this, it's always the same. Nothing ever changes. I've asked my parents about any areas like this I've been to as a child, but they know of none.
This place seems so familiar, yet so foreign.
I don't know.
