I know the dream book says this is about anxiety towards a big change. This one was so realistic and very different from ALL of my previous end of days dreams. I usually dream about lava- volcanoes popping up and ending up in a cave or something unable to reach anyone I love to check on them, once I was trapped in the house while pregnant while lava ingulfed the outside and left me trapped. These dreams usually take place in unfamiliar settings or places I've never been. This time it happened in Covington.
The farthest back in the dream I can remember is being on a bus and we were fighting someone violent. This part is unclear because the following disturbed me so badly. Suddenly a tidal wave of water crashed into the bus and we were surging underwater thru the town, all the windows were up and somehow it was not leaking. For some reason the light showed thru the water well and we could see buildings and cars surging along as well. It didn't last long and the water resided. We hadn't heard of any warnings and were baffled. We were able to get out and walked thru the demolished town. There were bodies like the tsunami pictures but mostly debri and partial buildings. We got to the Newton Plaza and there was this strange glow or redness lighting everything up. There were hundreds of people gathered. There were 4 bath tubs lined up with entire families sitting in them. I asked what happened, what's going on. A man looking quite prepared said, "this is our final day, as the sun rises we will all meet our maker and the world will end." A comet or asteroid had hit earth and caused instant tsunamis across the world, it had also knocked the earth alot closer to the sun. I had noticed for a.m. hours in winter it had already turned into the hottest of days in the summer. The entire crowd was eagerly awaiting the prophesy and figured it would be like a rapture. But fear struck into my family. We hid in a nearby apartment building. I remember this apartment being about 3 floors up and had a large sunroom extended off the living room. As the sun began to rise, people started to blister up in the streets, adults held their children as they screamed in agony. Me and Jason scrambled to shut curtains, to put up things to block the windows, which in reality we would know this wouldn't stop the sun's heat or causing things to burn, after 15 minutes I lifted rubble out of the window to glance outside and burned my hand. People were laying in the streets skin bubbling, apparently dead.
For some reason I was confronted by a man's wife that I had an affair with him, that she knew and had forgiven him and was forgiving me so she could go in peace. I rushed in and told Jason what I had done and asked his forgiveness and he forgave me. We sat on a green couch and huddled together as a family as we felt the heat bear down on us more and more. Then I woke up.
I tried going back to the dream which took a long time to fall back to sleep. Things had changed, something had passed. The sun only scorched the earth for one day and the earth bounced back. What I couldn't determine in the dream is we were already dead. The only way I can determine that is the abundance of people walking around, the destruction all gone, and Skylor was with us still a baby, and quite content. It was an entire different existence, people's speech was different, mannerisms. Mentions of paranoia the martians attacked us. People were aware of the devastation that occurred, but noone seemed aware it was undone, and more unaware that we were all dead. None of us wanted to mention it either, all that mattered was we were a family again and Skylor was with us.
Now to be different from other end of days dreams, this one made more sense. In order of creation the sun provides life and it took away life. Just wanted to write it all down to look back at it if something in my life connects to this stuff. Also Skylor does not hardly EVER make appearances in my dreams, the last was spring of 2007.
