Tell Me Your Wildest Dreams!
Every Wednesday I venture away from romantic/erotic fiction writing to interpret your dreams. Have a recurring or puzzling dream? Send it to and I'll try to shed some light on Wild Dreams Wednesday!

Well, it's been an interesting dream week! If I didn't know better I'd say Halloween was coming, as there have been a number of reported ghost and zombie dreams. Someone else dreamed they were standing on a picnic table that had a shark chained to it! But since I've covered ghost dreams and shark dreams recently, I thought I'd analyze the zombie dream.

This week's dream:

"I dreamed of zombie apocalypse. I saw more and more getting infected, and tried to save a group of boy scouts. I kept running and trying to help, but as always the zombies grew in number and kept coming. It seemed useless."



What do you think of when you hear the word "zombie?" They are monotone, programmed beings, shuffling forward on auto pilot with zero emotion. And yeah, they eat brains. In dreams, zombies represent ourselves, and feelings that we're moving through a situation without emotion, going through the motions in life while emotionally detached. And this dream involves children. As I discussed in my sinking ship interpretation, children also represent ourselves, aspects of our own childhood. The dreamer here is male, and is trying to save boy scouts from the attack to come. Perhaps current circumstances are bringing up feelings of helplessness you experienced as a child, or you subconsciously wish you could have done things differently to spare the boy scout "you" life experiences that were less fulfilling than you would have wished.


Wild Dreams Wednesdays interpretation by romance author/editor Lisa Logan is meant to be used for education and entertainment purposes only. I hope you've found this week's post useful! Stay tuned until next Wednesday, when we again delve deep into our Wildest Dreams. Sleep Tight!

I will have to admit, I've never had a zombie dream. Could be 'cause I don't watch zombie movies so a zombie would never enter my mind.

Could be. I don't have them either, though I've watched a few zombie flicks in my time. But it is an interesting metaphor for "going through the motions."
