I don't know why I am having such intense dreams. I guess my subconscious is processing a lot of things. It's a nice trade off, to quit mind altering substances and still have the chance to experience mind altering dreams! I really like the visuals I am getting too. Sometimes my dreams are a bit disturbing, but then I am just glad to wake up and say "Whew! It was only a dream!"
Sometimes dreams mean something, but I think sometimes it's just weird shit! No meaning at all, just bizarre stories. The dreams that frustrate me the most are the ones for which there is no language to describe them, at least not in English. I'll want to articulate them but I can't, and because I can't describe them, I forget them! Those ones always seem the most magical too, which is a shame that they are indescribable.
I think I can tell when a dream has meaning. Sometimes it takes me a while to find out the meaning. For a while I was having dreams about pulling broken glass out of my mouth, not eating glass, just suddenly FINDING it there! And it was a recurring dream so I knew it has something profound behind it. Then I found out my late Grandfather used to chew glass when he was in the military to seem really tough! It was just him saying hello to me. What was really remarkable about that was it was a piece of information I didn't have before the dreams started.
That dream about the black horse seemed pretty profound too.
The meth lab one seems pretty silly though. Which is why I say some of my dreams are just weird shit!
