There is a term in dream-study called Big Dreams: these aren’t like kinda sketchy super-symbolic vague wisps of dreams, nor are they nightmare-filled anxiety dreams, or even yummy sort of wish-fulfilling dreams. No, Big Dreams are, as it the name suggests, BIG DREAMS. Archetypal dreams. Dreams that change your life. Dreams that you sometimes can bring back to the village and maybe tell the others over a fire or perhaps turn into a video game or something.
The following are five Big Dreams I’ve had since I started recording them, 25 years ago. They’ve really made an impact on me, even though I don’t understand fully what some of them mean. I’ve had other dreams that’ve been important to my life, but they have often contained really obscure/personal symbolism that I don’t think would have much meaning to people outside myself.
