dream patterns
there are some patterns that appear in many of my dreams:

- i'm on stage, not knowing what to do, but i'm supposed to play (can be a theater or a rock concert)
- being in a house, searching for the exit but not finding it or not being able to reach it (mostly in combination with being chased by some kind of enemy)
- an enemy "organization" hunting me (anything from aliens to a paramilitary organization)
- malfunctioning elevators (not stopping where i want to go, going insanely high or low, shrinking, made out of glass)
- being invisible or hidden, and still being found/seen
- doing something incredibly stupid and then regretting it (like, getting ugly tattoos all over my body)
- being (partially) naked in public (sometimes despairing over it, sometimes not caring), or just having forgot to dress properly (i often forget my shoes somewhere in my dreams)

does anyone know where to find good pattern interpretations?

I get a lot of those four too, the elevator dreams occurred more frequently when I was younger (around 10-13 years old)

Re: dream patterns
you might try finding the symbology for yourself, as what means something to one person can mean something very different to another.

I have many recurring elements:

Dying and somehow resurrecting myself --- Failures, my annoyance at said failures, and subsequently overcoming them
Being chased (as a dragon) by helicopters and ground forces --- Feeling hunted from every angle, having to hide my draconity, fear of what would happen if others knew
Post apocalyptic earth --- my desire for a 'simpler', though infinitely harder, life. I really do feel born in the wrong millenia, and so my mind makes use of that a lot.
flying (dragon or human) --- feelings of and desire for freedom and personal power
Having difficulties staying aloft --- feeling under pressure from the outside world, struggling to continue with what I want

see? Your dreams relate entirely to *you* not some book. For example, dying in dreams is seen as a terrible and forboding thing by most dream interp books, even to the extreme of having something evil after you. I cry "yeah right!".

Re: dream patterns
I'll answer this properly tomorrow as i have to go now.
Its important that you don't trust most dream interpretation sites and books as they're mostly unreliable.
If you really want to find out what it means then look inside yourself.
People may be able to tell you what they "think" it means and by all means they may be right but only you and you're subconscious truly knows.

However i will interpret what they mean to the best of my ability tomorrow and hope that my interpretations feel right to you.

Agreed. But here's the two cents of what I think:

Perhaps you're uneasy about being looked up to and perhaps idolized by many members of the Otherkin community and not being able to stop/control that? It would tie in together the naked/stage/stupid thing as well as the typical Otherkin paranoia dreams with the elevator dreams. However, perhaps you realize you can't control this and thus cannot escape it (house dream).

That's just me pretty much making an educated guess, try not to read into it too much. I'm not an experienced dream interpreter by any means <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->.

Re: dream patterns
thank you, kreyas, but all these patterns are way older than my membership to the otherkin community.
i do have some ideas as to what some of these things could mean, but i'd like to wait with that until i've heard some interpretations. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Ok Here's my answer that i promised.
-I think the stage thing could perhaps be a desire to be noticed and idolised? (not too sure thats the right word). Yet you feel unable to get that recognition from people. Perhaps you lack confidence?
-You are searching for answers within yourself but maybe you're frustrated at the lack of answers. You feel hemmed in with the pressure and stress of your life and maybe supressed feelings contribute to that.
- The hunting bit usually refers to unfortunate events in your life that you wish to escape from. However it could have another meaning of wanting to break free and do something different.
-Elevators could also be a feeling of being trapped into the routinely life you live (if you're not satisfied with your current life). It could also refer to the desire to stop particularly good moments of your life from fading away into the distance, to make them last.
-Hmm i think maybe you think you're different? and don't want to be noticed. Recent dreams of this could be influenced by the otherkin label however dreams "older" than the otherkin community could be due to the fact that you aren't comfortable with how things are. I don't know about your childhood but if you were feeling left out then it could cause dreams like this as the feeling of being left out causes people to not want to be with the people that make them feel that way. It could link to your demonic traits. I mean just because you don't know you're an otherkin doesn't change the fact that you are one. Subconsciously this could have had something to do with it.
-The tatoos seems like an obvious desire (like the stage dream) to be noticed. It can also be a sign of wanting to expand your current life and to do different things. In childhood it is common for children to have "dreams" where they want to be rockstars or princesses etc and realising how stupid it was when they grew older... so this can create a chain of events that lead up to the dream of doing things unusual. Even a memory, maybe subconscious, can trigger a dream that reflects childhood.
-The partially naked in public suggests a kind of mixed view. You maybe want to be noticed or fit in but don't really like attention. (thats what i get anyway. I think you feel insecure yet not really sure what it is you're insecure about.

Hope you've read this far. I don't know how much of this is correct but i hope this is of some use to you.

my own thoughts on these:

Being on stage- Feeling like you are needing to perform for someone, or do a particular action, but you don't what
lack of exit - Just that. Feeling trapped and hunted. A desire to flee from pressure.
being hunted - same as above. Feeling pressured by a large group.
Elevators -- These are things that take us to different 'levels'. They are simple, linear progression. A disruption to the path that you feel you should be following. Uncertainty about both real-world and spiritual progression. The shrinking elevator is again feeling trapped. A glass one, vulnerability.
being hidden - there's safety in being invisible, especially for those who feel hunted. Being seen when you should not be strikes me as a sign of stress and fear that despite all you do to attract no notice, you feel you are being watched all the time.
doing something stupid - A fear that you've recently, or soon will, do something just that. A fear of making mistakes.
lack of clothing -- feeling unprepared and, like you said, either caring about this or not. Can also be an expression of personal freedom as many clothes can be binding.

*shrugs* that's at least what it would mean if I dreamed those patterns.
