Dream on Mofo

I have of last night had 3 consecutive dreams about my death.

Dream 1: Friends beat the fuck outa me, stabbed me, I died.
Dream 2: Friends beat the fuck outa me, I died.
Dream 3: Beating part is fuzzy, I died.

Friends in these 3 dreams refer to a real 'rojak' combination of past and present acquaintances some of which I was shocked I even dreamt about.

Reactions to this dream:

Aruna: "Dreams you can remember, never come true"
[Logically this is wrong. If whatever you don remember, comes true then...how would you even be able to correlate real life events to dream events? You shouldn't have remembered the dream event ma...]

Mum: "Go and pray at the temple. You always don't go temple"

Grandma: "I don't know all this how to translate. Go pray at temple"

Brother: "Wah, die already ah...can I have your room and your computer?"

So, I had to defer to a real dream analyst, that being my darlin Chitra,

Chitra: "It means your life is in danger. Be careful for the next few days. A good friend will probably turn on you."

And still, I was curious so I proceeded to go look online. Came across coupla articles and sites and this is what they said:

Death (yours)
Certainly one of the most upsetting dreams of all, you may see or feel yourself dying, no matter the method.
Meaning: Obviously, this can cause anxiety, but the dream itself is positive, as it signals that your life is about to change for the better. There are important changes ahead. Still, it may also mean that you have a destructive lifestyle or that you're in an unhealthy relationship.

You dream that you're fighting with somebody. It might even be to the death.
Meaning: You may interpret this as an indication that you're experiencing inner turmoil. Ideals within you are competing for attention. If you fight to the death, it could mean that you're not willing to acknowledge a conflict in your waking life.

To dream that you have been stabbed, signifies your struggle with power. You may be experiencing feelings of inadequacy and defensiveness. Alternatively, you may be feeling betrayed as the popular phrase goes, "being stabbed in the back".

To see your friends in your dream, signifies aspects of your personality that you have rejected, but are ready to integrate these rejected part of yourself. The relationships you have with those around you are important in learning about yourself. Additionally, this symbol foretells of happy tidings from them and the arrival of good news.

So, how coincidental can it get, when I get home after work and lazing on the couch checking out the papers, I get an sms. From Simren, and it went like this:

Simren: Hi shanks! Where are you now?? I just woke up from a bad dream bout you. Take care and be careful. God bless.
Me: Gimme details. What happened? Where was I?
Simren: I think something happeneed to you. You got bitten by an animal.. the animal survived, I don't think you did.I have a bad feeling. Just be careful ok?
Me: [many many questions]

So, Sim calls and gives me the lowdown.
You were at my place and we were getting ready to go see Cheryl and the others. Then, we saw my rat. Someone gave that to me and I didn't want it. The rat doesnt come near me cos it knows I will give it away. The rat was light brown, a baby rat. Then you said you'd help me with it so grabbed on to it. The rat bit you and continued doing so. Suddenly, I looked around and you were nowhere to be seen. I knew then you were dead.

I mean like FUCK! right! I died! AGAIN! So, back to the research board.


To see rats in your dream, signifies feelings of doubts, guilt and/or envy. You are having unworthy thoughts that you are keeping to yourself but are eating you up inside. Alternatively, it denotes repulsion. The dream may also be a pun on someone who is a rat. To see a black rat, represents deceit and covert activities. To see a white rat in your dream, denotes that in your time of distress, you will receive assistance from an unexpected source. To dream that a rat is biting your feet, symbolizes the rat race that you are experiencing in your waking life.

My mum's interpretation for this episode?

Mum: "The rat is Vinayagar's vehicle. So, you means he is angry with you. Go and make offerings at the temple. Told you go temple right."

Drats. Her tune doesn't change. Anyhow, if any of you has a granny or a mummy or daddy who knows how to read dreams and it varies from Chitra's interpretation, do leave me a comment.

Late addition
I was recounting the story to Diana and she goes:
Diana: don't tell me you dreamt this last night?
Me: Why? Did you also dream bout me? Tell me. Tell me.
Diana: Oh, it was quite a dumb dream. I dreamt you called me to tell me you were dead.

After all this, I am still fuckin blur.

the rat represents a very bad force in ya life... the fact that you touched it means that you harbour this "bad force" around you and it bit you.. meaning it feeds of you...

i had a really nasty dream that freaked me out once.. it had a rat in it.. aaaaand.. i asked someone well versed in sub conscious analysis.

=( then again maybe u did say something bad to the tubby little elephant and his friend is getting back at ya.
