    • I hada dream of my dog playing with a stranger’s dog and my dog kept running away. The stranger pointed at training techniques up in the ceiling and i told him they didn’t work. I woke up fearful, although the stranger seemed to be a friend in my dream. Also, at one point, myself, the stranger, and my dog were in the back of a car. My dog is a white shih tzu. Any ideas?

    I dreamed I was jogging down a main street and a stranger came up to help me tighten my backpack to my back making it easier to job. Then we stopped to eat blueberries from a beautiful tree that was in a box. I felt so much better afterwards. In real life I don’t job and I’m usually the one helping others so this dream was a little strange to me.

  6. I had a dream about a dark stranger in a dark warehouse or a parking garage, it changed back and forth. He was looming over me and in the background the song Solsbury Hill was playing.

  7. How about dreaming someone who i dont know,but in my dreams were like a lovers?what could be the meaning of that?
