Today I remembered two of my dreams the night before. Both of these dreams had to do with my physical body, but in totally different ways.
I was looking at myself in the mirror and thought that I looked amazing. It would be great picture of my body and I could put it on a dating site. So I got out my phone and started to take the picture, but then when I looked back at myself in the mirror – I looked fat. While my face was still pretty, my body needed to be out of it. So I ended up taking a picture of myself in the corner of the mirror, making it a cute little ‘abstract’ picture.
This is a very vapid dream, and pretty easy to analyze considering how shallow it is. The first time that I look at myself in the mirror I consider myself pretty, gorgeous etc, but as I reflect on how other people may see me (Camera) I realize that I’m not as attractive as I could be. In order to compensate for the difference I take a picture of myself doing something cute. I think this is what many people do online, or in photos, because our perceptions of ourselves usually change when we look in a third person perspective.
This dream seemed to be a two parter. I went to get a tattoo on the inner part of my arm. I made an appointment with a guy and it took a couple of weeks to set it out. We decided to make the tattoo Critical Role inspired with quotes from the show, and a little picture of the characters that I connected to. It was done very well, and it had a little black backdrop. Look sort of like a comic book page, but on my arm. Skip forward a couple of months and I forgot I had the tattoo. Remembered that I only wanted three tattoos, and was a bit disappointed in myself, but realized I now could have four, so I just had to add the other one later on if I wanted. Since the guy did such an amazing job, I decided to recommend him to a friend. My friend had to talk to multiple people and she almost had the tattoo, but then I woke up.
I believe the last part of my dream about the other person is to keep me asleep so I wake up during a better part of my sleep cycle.
The first part seems to be that I have made Critical Role an important part of my life. I didn’t anticipate how much it would be, but it is now “with me” forever. Which is pretty cool because the show is amazing and the community is great. It’s just weird that it showed up like that in a dream.
I like analyzing dreams. I’ve done a lot of research on dreams and a dream is usually a representation of your day to day life, and can help see the things you are ignoring, and a great way to understand yourself.
