      Anyone else has Alice In Wonderland related dreams? (shrinking/giant size) Please post here!

      Anyone else has height related dreams, like me?
      I'm just curious. Please post here!
      The dream I had last night, I was at my sister's house and my niece was there with her friends. I remember that began to shrink down to about the size as a toddler height or smaller. I had trouble trying to get up on one of the couches there. My niece appeared to be her age as she is now. I was staying overnight there and one moment I was at my normal height and the next I was toddler size, small fry. They helped me get up on the couch by stacking pillows and building blocks in the form of stairs so I can get up on the couch.


      Another dream that I had once, that I woke up in a vending machine. I'm not sure what time it was or even what day it was but, I saw a giant Twix bar, a massive Jellybelly Jellybeans, and a colossal bag of Planter's roasted peanut. All the candy is protected behind a spiralling, silver ring. The walls were all black and I saw cards with labels like A11 and A13. I know I'm in a vending machine.
      It's hard to pinpoint quite how I feel. It's not terror. I'm half an inch tall, it won't take much to sustain me. There's plenty of air. I wouldn't say that in the dream that I wouldn't feel great about having to bite into a Twix bar I haven't paid for, but I wouldn't feel guilty either. I'm not really confused because since I've been having these dreams since I was little situations have occurred. But, I don't remember how I got there and that's troubling. I guess that's what happens when you drink before you go to bed.


      The other dreams that I have been in the last few Task Of The Months or I've grown to massive height or shrink down a very small size.

      I only now remembered that in fact I had many incidents when I woke up from being overwhelmed by such a change in dimensions, getting too gigantic usually. I don't know what to make of it, I need to put more attention to dream analysis I guess.

      Then there is this one where I went back in time to ancient Rome. I was jailed and even sentenced to death. I grew to be a giant to escape. I remember saying something sarcastic at them that they didn't like and then they attacked me with their little weapons. The feeling of getting stabbed by their tiny swords felt like getting attacked by toothpicks which tickled. The earth quaked in every step that I took.

      By the way, the day I answered to your question I read about such dreams in Carl Jung's Man and his Symbols, he wrote it's a very common in dreams to grow gigantic and he also wrote about Alice in Wonderland, the book actually contains an image of her being stuck in little place with her gigantic body. Carl concludes that even though all dreams are individual stuff, such dreams usually happen when a person has some inferiority complex, to compensate what is lacking in the real life, so to speak.

      So, does that mean the opposite when you shrink down to micro or 0.31 inches??

      Well, no, according to him, it's all the same:
      And, speaking more generally, it is plain foolishness to believe in ready-made systematic guides to dream interpretation, as if one could simply buy a reference book and look up a particular symbol. No dream symbol can be separated from the individual who dreams it, and there is no definite or straightforward interpretation of any dream. Each individual varies so much in the way that his unconscious complements or compensates his conscious mind that it is impossible to be sure how far dreams and their symbols can be classified at all.

      It is true that there are dreams and single symbols (I should prefer to call them “motifs”) that are typical and often occur. Among such motifs are falling, flying, being persecuted by dangerous animals or hostile men, being insufficiently or absurdly clothed in public places, being in a hurry or lost in a milling crowd, fighting with useless weapons or being wholly defenseless, running hard yet getting nowhere. A typical infantile motif is the dream of growing infinitely small or infinitely big, or being transformed from one to the other—as you find it, for instance, in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. But I must stress again that these are motifs that must be considered in the context of the dream itself, not as self-explanatory ciphers.

      The recurring dream is a noteworthy phenomenon. There are cases in which people have dreamed the same dream from childhood into the later years of adult life. A dream of this kind is usually an attempt to compensate for a particular defect in the dreamer’s attitude to life; or it may date from a traumatic moment that has left behind some specific prejudice. It may also sometimes anticipate a future event of importance.

      HAHA! Aren't we all lacking something in our lives?

      That's it though, some of those dreams that I shared were lucid, like some of those links that I shared. I wasn't intending for an interpretation but, rather sharing of something that people may have experienced and maybe who knows, I could help you guys experience those kinds of dreams for yourselves.
      No, I don't have Todd, Alice in Wonderland Syndrome (AWS) or Lilliputian hallucinations, as far as I know. Though, you would start to wonder if you can have that in dreamland, but, for me, that's probably not the case. Have you even read any of my Lucids in the tasks of the months? I know exactly why I have some of my dreams. I'm not a clueless space cadet, you know. But, um, you know, life's funny. I'm it's not like I haven't shrunk myself down and sent myself overnight delivery before in a dream. Hey, the postal service is very reliable, you know? They do tracking numbers now. Like UPS. Or done stuff that inquired me to go big. *shrugs*
      But, if you really need help with those kinds of dreams, I may help. For me, those dreams are not negative. Thanks for your insight though.
