  1. I dreamed that I was swimming in a large pool then I got out and blood started pouring Al over me and I started freaking out

  2. I dreamed I bled shortly from my nose after flying in an extremely high speed with somebody I can’t recognize.

    I had my eyes open and I was flying in a straight direction between buildings and mountains. The speed was so high that I crossed many countries in just some seconds. At some point I even went through a huge block of water which was like under the ocean, and I was still able to breathe normally without feeling the water choking me. Then we stopped right in the place where we took off and we were surrounded by other comrades which I don’t know in my waking life. And they were like curious to know how was our experience and what we saw. And at that right moment I felt something is dropping from my nose, I touched it, it was blood. I thought it was because of the speed we were flying in. And I also thought “So, that is the feeling of a nosebleed ! ” because in my waking life I have never bled from my nose.

    Can you please help me understand this dream ?

  3. I had a dream that my mom invited President Obama over to our house and he brought his kid (in the dream he had a young white boy for a child) and then suddenly me and the pres and his kid were on the run because we were being chased after and shot at – at first I kept close to the president but then somehow we separated and I think I had to keep his kid safe but everywhere we ran there were people shooting at us and the secret service guys or whoever was there to protect the president (and myself and the kid) were putting all their focus into helping the president and even though I kept getting shot over and over (non-lethal, though), the security guys wouldn’t pay attention to helping me and in the end all three of us escaped alive but everyone was fawning over the president to make sure he was okay and I said to them “guys, im starting to bleed out, I really need to get to the hospital” and in the last scene of the dream I think I eventually made it to the hospital and did not die.
