Dreams Where There’s Food But Nobody Eats
July 23, 2016

Don’t you hate those dreams where there’s lots of food around but you never seem to get a chance to enjoy any of it?


I used to have dreams like that all the time. Actually I still do! But my dream last night caused me to wake up mad! GGGRRR …!

Why? Because in my dream I had prepared a feast! There was about 100 people sitting at the table waiting to be served this delicious food. It seemed like it was supposed to be a Thanksgiving meal. In my mind there were roast turkey slices on a platter or something.

My husband for some reason disappeared. Where did he go? He was supposed to help! GGGRRR …!!

So I start serving the guests. I don’t know why but I went around putting what looked like pumpkin pie slices on everybody’s plate.  Just to get them started eating I guess.  (O.o)

Anyway, I could tell the older folks wanted some real food and were starting to wonder when they would be served. I turned around and on this long table behind there were like boxes and inside the boxes were several dinners in like take-out boxes. You know like when you go a restaurant and order food to go and they put it in those white boxes (or foam food containers). The food looked like it came from a Chinese restaurant. In other words, my turkey had disappeared. Instead there was chop suey! Which is not even Chinese! Duh!

So I just took each box and gave out as many as there were, but it wasn’t enough for everybody to be served. All of a sudden, my husband reappears. Yeah right. Now you show up?!! To do what??!! The dinner is a total disaster! GRRRR … !!!

There’s not enough food for everybody! The kids were angry because they don’t even like the dessert! The adults were upset because some of them got food and some of them didn’t.

At that point, I am fuming. Livid!  This is the worse dinner party ever!!

So I did the only thing that a person could do in a situation like that.

I woke up!  🙂

    1. I thought I was the only one who had dreams like that. After dreaming about having an abundance of food around me and can’t get any of it, I wake up very hungry.

      • LOL. I think what really annoyed is me that my husband was supposed to be helping and he ducked out and then showed back when it had already become a disaster. 🙂

    2. Did you not feel happy to realise that it was only a dream? I get dreams too that get me into jitters but when I wake up I feel so happy that it was only a dream.

      • Precisely. That’s why I ended the post with “I woke up!” 🙂 I was so glad to get myself out of that mess. 🙂

    3. I have heard dream come true if the intention is clear and heart be full of honesty otherwise dreams come not true in real life but dreaming is not good but useful for health because it keeps human mind and heart up twenty four hours.

      Why we dream is still one of the behavioral sciences’ greatest unanswered questions. Researchers have offered many theories—memory consolidation, emotional regulation, threat simulation—but a unified one remains, well, a pipe dream. Nevertheless, people continue mining their nighttime reveries for clues to their inner lives, for creative insight, and even for premonitions.

      Some people underestimate the significance of dreams by totally disregarding them. They refer to them as legends, and reject it simply because it is part of the unseen. On the opposite spectrum, there are people who totally rely on their dreams to such an extent that they let their dreams control their lives.

      They base their life decisions, and in fact even derive laws & legislation (such as what is considered as halal &haram) according to their dreams. For instance, there was a man who dreamt that his wife had adultery and so when he woke up he divorced her.

      But I have seen that dreams are real and have meaning in life.
