Zombie Dreams

So recently I’ve had a bunch of nightmares involving zombies. In the span of a month and a half I’ve dreamed of zombies attacking me about 5 times.

The first zombie dream I can remember was at an amusement park near my home. My mother and sister and I were supposed to be meeting people there. All of a sudden a mob of people start running away from the park and someone yells, “There coming the zombies are coming!” I hear this and start to run in the same direction as the crowd. My mother and sister don’t move and I’m yelling at them to hurry up cause we had to run away and they stand there as if they can’t hear me. Eventually the crowd pushes me away and I get onto a train of some sort.

After the doors close I sit there sad that my mom and sister are now probably being eaten alive by zombies. All of a sudden the people on the train with me (none of which I recognize) begin transforming into zombies.

The second zombie dream that I can remember just as vividly is slightly different. I’m sitting in what looks like my backyard but its slightly different with someone who I know but I can’t tell who it is. Then I see a mob of zombies and I run down a path to hide from them and lose the person I was originally standing with. Then I’m with a girl that I work with, one of my old professors, and my grandmother; we are trying to plan a strategy to safety.  The girl I work with wants to fight the zombies, my professor wants to wait for help, and my grandmother just looks into the distance with her hands on her hips shaking her head and repeating, “They’re coming and they won’t stop until they get us. There is no way our we’re all going to die.” After she says this I wake up in a cold sweat.

I was quite curious about the negative images and decided to do a little bit of research on the matter.

I looked up what zombies symbolize in dreams from a couple of different places.  http://www.dreammoods.com/dreamdictionary interprets the zombie attack like this:

“To dream that you are attacked by zombies, indicate that you are feeling overwhelmed by forces beyond your control. You are under tremendous stress in your waking life. Alternatively, the dream represents your fears of being helpless and overpowered.”

This makes sense to me since I’ve been feeling very down lately. I have a tremendous amount of stress because of work, school, and my private life. I think that the three people in my dream represent the different parts of my life and their reactions to the zombies (the negativity or stress lets say) are three different plans of attack that I could take to not feel so stressed.

I don’t know what I want to do with my future and I’m scared of making the wrong decisions. I also don’t have the confidence that I used to have and so taking risks and moving on with life is not something I’m even remotely comfortable with at this stage in the game.
