Why do some dreams recur? Is there any way to stop a recurring dream?

Dr. Kahn, of Harvard University Medical School, says:

“The content of recurring dreams frequently seems to be related to issues in our lives that lack closure or resolution. If you address the underlying issue, the dream is likely to go away.

“For example, if you feel that you are not in control of your life, you might have recurring dreams of driving a car without brakes or rowing a boat that’s being swept toward a waterfall. (The dream’s details are likely to vary from night to night.) If you start to feel more in control of your life, you will probably have these dreams less often.”

I agree with Dr. Kahn. Troublesome recurring dreams are coming to you at night over and over to signal that you have issues to resolve when you wake up! When dreams are attempting to “serve” you (to help you) they may have to say the same thing in different ways, over and over, until you get it!

As always, my best advice is to pray and ask God “what is this dream trying to tell me?” God loves you and He uses dreams to send you important messages. Be blessed by your dreams. Grow because of your dreams. Learn to interpret your dreams. Love and appreciate them for the wonderful gift they are! Your friend, Ruthanna

    mine is confusing though, I’ve had it since I was about 4 or 5, maybe younger, I am now 14 and I’m still having the dream. it doesn’t make any sense to me. I was with my family at a gas station in alaska, (where I used to live) and it was really close to where my house was. It was before my parents got a divorce, and both my parents and my brother were there. the car was parked beside this big black hole, it looked kinda like a tar pit, and in my dream I didn’t fall in I was already in, I was holding on to the side with one hand, and slowly slipping, my family just sat in the car and watched, and didn’t do anything to even try to help
