Hot Lava Dreams



About three nights ago, I had a dream that involved hot lava.  I think it's our childhood that makes us label it as "hot" lava, which an unnecessary obvious adjective (duh, lava is hot).  And I believe it may stem from playing Super Mario Bros. a lot as a kid.  Repeatedly trying to get through nightmarish castles that held lava in their motes and knowing that a very timely jump was the only thing between you and instant sure-death...  It seems that everyone else in my dreams who had to leap over small streams of lava and failed would die...  But when I touched it, it wasn't hot to the touch, but for the remainder of the dream, it still would be avoided at all costs.  Also, the consistency of the lava is always that of tomato soup rather than being a thick, luscious molten rock.

I'm very curious about how many other people dream of lava and what they think was the original inspiration for such dreams.  Do you also not die when you touch it while others around you do?  This last dream of lava was the first time in many years.

  3. I've been dreaming just about every single night for the past month or so. It's crazy, because I used to rarely dream (or at least rarely remember what I dreamed). They are much more vivid lately. But I thought lava was a normal thing to dream about every now and then... Ha.

  13. All the time! You're right, it never is hot as in burn the skin off your face if you get too close. I had a really weird one where the lava was a method of torture and there were tubs of the stuff in different colors corresponding to different temperatures. I think it originated from a mexian restaurant with different salsas and hot sauces.
