Abe Lincoln: Dream Invader

It’s time for another dream blog. I wish the following dream was longer but it was not. Maybe it was. Maybe there was a whole other part to the dream I dont recall. No matter. It is still my dream and like all my dreams, they are eff’ed up. While eff’ed up, they do make for some great reading. Read on and don’t worry. It’s not very long.

I was in a hallway. There are doors and rooms to the left of me. At the end of the hall is a door. I am riding a bicycle down this hallway. I am making my way to the door at the end of the hallway. I catch something out of the corner of my eye. There is someone in the room to the left of me. I’d already passed the room and needed to turn my bike around to get a better look at what was so interesting the first time around. What could possibly be so captivating that I need to stop heading towards the door at the end of hallway and check out what is hiding inside that door I saw with my left eye.

I head back and look in the room. Inside is the 16th president of the United States. Mr. Abraham Lincoln is there, standing tall and proud in the corner of this dark room. It wasn’t dark, dark. It was a very brownish room but it just felt dark inside. I am standing there and now a girl appears. I don’t know who she was. I can’t even describe what she looked like. I don’t remember. It doesn’t matter what she looks like. The real features and the real ‘wtf’ moment is all about what Abe Lincoln looked like.

It was honest Abe. It was him, I promise. The only difference between the Abe we all know and the Abe I saw in my dream is his skin color. My Abe was a black man. It was an African-American Abraham Lincoln. Wait… I am not finished. He wasn’t just African-American Abraham Lincoln. He was African-American Abraham Lincoln: Stilt Walker.

I don’t know why he was on stilts. Abe was a tall man. He was the tallest president (tied with Lyndon B. Johnson ) at 6 foot 4 inches. I guess when you meet someone like the president, you need to get your photo taken with him. That’s what I wanted to do. I wanted my photo with African-American Abraham Lincoln on stilts. Not everyday you see the 16th president on stilts is it? Lucky for me I had a camera handy and extra lucky to have this random, faceless girl there to take the kodak moment. I give the girl the camera and she agrees to take the snapshot.


She takes the photo. She’s gone now. I don’t know if she walked out of the room or if she just vanished. Honestly, that happens often in my dreams. People make random guest spots and when their cameo is done with, they go away and aren’t seen again in that dream. So the girl is gone. Abe leans down. Abe leans way down. We shake the Polaroid picture. It’s blank. Nothing showed up. It was a blurry photograph with no way of proving that I was standing next to Abe Lincoln on stilts. It was a waste. I meet the 16th president and have nothing to show for it. Before the dream ended he gave me some advice about something. While I didn’t catch all the specifics, I did recall him telling me about watching movies on netflix.

Wise words from African-American Abraham Lincoln: Stilt Walker.  Use Netflix.

It wasn’t a long and detailed oriented dream like the others I have had. There are still a few things I can pull out from the dream and look up. We can see what the dream means or if it is just another hodge podge of ideas and memories bouncing around in my brain.

  • hallway
  • bicycle
  • door
  • room
  • abe lincoln
  • african-american* (since Lincoln is caucasian, i feel it’s necessary to note it)
  • stilts
  • girl with no face
  • blurry photograph

Like always, I will use dreammoods.com. It has most of the junk I dream about listed 99% of the time.

Hallway: To see a hallway in your dream symbolizes self exploration. It is the beginning of the path that you are taking in life. You are going through a transitional phase and journeying into the unknown. It also signals spiritual enlightenment, emotional growth physical prowess, new opportunities and mental passages in your life.

Bicycle: To dream that you are riding a bicycle signifies your desires to attain a balance in your life. You need to balance work and pleasure in order to succeed in your current undertakings.

Door: To dream that the door is closed or locked signifies opportunities that are denied and not available to you or that you have missed out on. Something or someone is blocking your progress. It also symbolizes the ending of a phase or project.

Room: To dream that you find or discover a new room suggests that you are developing new strengths and taking on new roles. You may be growing emotionally. Consider what you find in the discovered room as it may indicate repressed memories, fears, or rejected emotions. Alternatively, such rooms are symbolic of neglected skills or rejected potential.

Abe Lincoln: To see Abraham Lincoln in your dream refers to your solid character and leadership ability. Known as “Honest Abe”, the dream may also be telling you to be truthful or to come clean about something.

African American: To see an African American in your dream signifies your roots and heritage. You may need to discover the soul within your own self. Alternatively, the dream may mean that you need to be more expressive and creative.

Stilts: To dream that you are walking on stilts indicate that you are feeling insecure. A situation or relationship is unstable. You are doing your best trying to balance various aspects of your life.

Girl With No Face: To see a faceless figure or person in your dream indicates that you are still searching for your own identity and finding out who you are. Perhaps you are unsure of how to read people and their emotions. Therefore, you are expressing a desire to know and understand these people on a deeper level. Since it was a girl, To see a girl in your dream represents your playful, innocent, and childlike nature. Perhaps you are behaving immaturely in some situation. Alternatively, a girl represents the feminine qualities of your character.

Blurry Photograph: To see a blurry picture in your dream suggests that your memory of the depicted event, incident, or people is fading. Perhaps you need to let go of the past and stop holding on to what was and concentrate on what is. On the other hand, you are attempting to disguise a situation and refusing to see it as it really is. You need to learn acceptance.

Yeah… So that’s what it all means. Give some insight. Tell me what the dream could mean. It’s hard since you really don’t know much about my life but give it a shot. The more I write down my dreams and look up the meaning, the more I begin to think that they may have some meaning behind them. The other part of me is telling me to stop thinking and take it for what it is. Just a dream. Just random crap you think about that means nothing more than just an active imagination.
