My Top 5 Strangest Reoccurring Dreams

Reoccurring dreams are supposed represent something in your life, and if that's true, I would like to know what the heck these meant.

I have had plenty of strange dreams, but only a few stuck with me throughout my childhood. These are all dreams I have had several times over the years. Some were good, some were bad, all were very strange.

5. Captain Aaron of the Enterprise

I had this dream about 3 to 5 times a year from 1994 to around 1997.

I was Captain of the Enterprise in place of Picard. It starts out with me in an elevator with Worf and Riker.  I go to engineering to talk to Geordi and then I get called to the bridge and all hell breaks loose.

We get boarded and we try to fight them off but they are too much for us. We try to escape but the dream always ended in a Warp Core explosion. I was never sure if I made it or not. 

4. Eaten by Taz the Bed Sheet Ghost

I had this dream several times and at very similar times. It had alternate endings, but always started the same way.

I am at a store with my family when I run off by myself and run through the whole store. When it starts to close I run toward the door just in time to see my family drive off. I run through the store looking for an adult to call home for me, but when I turn the corner I find either 1 of 2 characters. It is either Taz from Looney Toons or some guy wearing a generic ghost costume- white bed sheet with eye holes.

If it was Taz, he would eat me and I would wake up trying to get out of his stomach. If it was the ghost he would chase me around the store until I found my way outside and my family would come back and pick me up outside the store.

3. the Cleveland Indian

I had this dream dozens of times and I hated it every single time.

The dream would start out with me at school playing baseball in the school gym with all of my friends, when all of a sudden the lights would go out. My friends would all start laughing creepily before it goes silent.

Then suddenly I would hear the sounds of an Indian war call and I would just start sprinting through the gym. Once I started, it was more like a level of Mario than a school gym, but the dream would end with me finally making it to the door where there was light. As I would step out on the floor, it would give way and I
would land on the mat in the gym and it would start all over again.

I remember this dream very vividly and it led to my hatred of that baseball team, every time I saw the Indian, for years.


2. A Girl Named Shannon

There was this girl named Shannon that I had a huge crush on throughout school, but I never had the guts to tell her.

This dream starts out with me finally asking her out and her agreeing to go to a dance with me. When we get there, it starts out as a normal dance. Then, suddenly, the school is overrun by vampires and earthquakes occur all over the place. I am trying to protect her and I manage to kill off enough of the vampires to get to the door. I tell her to run while I turn my back to hold the vampires off and she stabs me in the back. I turn around to see that she is a vampire as well before my vision fades out into me waking up.

1. Pillow Head 

This is the most laughably frightening thing my dreams ever produced. The concept of this thing is funny but the dreams with this guy in them were by far the scariest. I had this dream more than any other,  mostly from age 4 to 9.

This guy was the stuff creepy pasta's are made of. The dream started out with me and my brothers hanging out and watching TV when the lights flicker on and off. Panicky music starts, then my brothers run out of the room leaving me there with this thing. 

My brother's pillow would suddenly take the form of this giant looming monster. The scary thing about this was that unlike most dreams on the list in which I knew what was coming and how they were going to end (because they mostly ended the same way), this guy would show up disguised as a family member he has taken the form of. Any member of my family.

In a lot of my nightmares, my family would save me or I might gain the powers of my favorite superheroes and kick butt, but not against this thing. And the nights I had dreams with this guy in them, I just knew I would not sleep well the rest of the night.

Well, those were my top 5 reoccurring dreams. I hope you enjoyed this article as much as I did writing it. All of these dreams took place in the early to late 90's. Please share some of your nightmares, or maybe interpret some of these for me.

The dream about Taz reminds me of a freaky dream I used to come back to as a kid, where I was in a shopping mall, and a flying demon was following me everywhere I went.

Pillow Head sounds like a good premise for a horror movie.

I had 2 reoccurring dreams during childhood: 1) I would get left behind somewhere by my family, but in this world I was a 4 year old Spider-Man. So I would stick to the bottom of a car (in costume) that would drive around the city until I found my family. 2) I was stuck in a maze with multiple doors, either Batman, The Joker or a family friend would pop out from a door, but when I went to open it they were gone and as I walked through I was back the start of the maze again.

This is a very interesting subject.

I don't know that I have ANY reoccurring dreams, or that I EVER had any. I do know that I have had dreams that take place in the same locations and involve similar situations.

There are a few dreams from my youth that have been cemented in my memory forever:

One very simple yet traumatic dream had my mom and several other women seated in a circle around a small pool or tub that was located out in the yard of some mystery house in some mystery neighborhood. There was water in the pool and their feet were dangling down in the water. A shark was in the water, and I spent my entire time in the dream trying to prevent the shark from eating the feet of the women, especially my mom.

In another dream that took place at the home I grew up in, I had learned to jump extremely high. I enjoyed being able to jump 50 feet in the air, but controlling the direction of my jumps and how I landed was another matter. I ended up landing on top of a metal awning that covered a small patio... the whole thing came tumbling down and I was partially buried under the metal pieces.

In recent times, many, many, many dreams take place with me back in high school. And almost always, it happens to be close to graduation and I have missed classes and homework and will likely not graduate. Anything else that happens in these dreams revolve around me trying to figure out what to do, and how to break the news to my parents. I can't tell you how many times I have had this situation unfold in a dream. Countless times. In fact, I had another of these dream situations happen very recently.
