I have dreams about jumping from things high up or suspended in the air. I have dreams about jumping from moving vehicles as well.
In my dreams, Incubus’ Wish You Were Here plays on a loop.
In reality, I’m afraid of heights.
On occasion, I have a dream that involves my jumping, or more specifically, cliff diving. And in my dream, I’m invincible. I pull my parachute and land gracefully. Peacefully. Sometimes into a lagoon.
I can’t swim.
I used to have a recurring dream about jumping from the bed of a pickup truck into a galloping horse.
I’ve never been in a saddle.
According to various credible sources (the dream interpretation books I bought at Hot Topic in 2001 and 2002), jumping in dreams indicates succeeding at getting to where I want to be in life. It also indicates that I am a risk taker. That alone makes it obvious. It’s obvious these writers haven’t met me. Ever.
Additionally, dreams about riding horses mean I have full control over my situation. My urges are also controlled by intellect.
Good to know.
Dreaming with the band Incubus as a soundtrack isn’t in my books. That’s probably a good thing. It’s likely online somewhere. I don’t want to look.
But hearing a song in a dream indicates great mood swings. It also means that divine providence guides my fate.
Add all of that together and it means no tacos after 8:00 pm.
My jumping dreams are entertaining and encouraging. I wonder about the song? Who’s supposed to be there?
I’m always alone in my dreams.
Maybe one night, I will remember to look before I jump.
