I woke up about a minute prior to when the alarm would be going off. Interestingly something odd happened in the dream that was almost like a prompt for me to wake up. Within the dream I heard some words spoken that seemed to be my wake up call. Let me describe the latter moments of the dream and the words I heard spoken.
Towards the end of my dream I am in the same theater where I have been throughout the dream sessions. I go looking around the theater environment to find myself to be in what seems to be a sort of shopping mall. From the backstage area I look out into this mall-like place to see food establishments and various other businesses that are not necessarily stores, but more like professional offices and service businesses. There are some people milling about and sitting on benches, but the place is not very crowded. In fact the place does not look busy at all.
As my eyes scan the scene before me I see uncertain places that somewhat confuse me as to where I am. I look behind me to see that the theater is still there. I am apprehensive about venturing out into the alien environment outside of the theater. I look for a bathroom. I look for some of my fellow cast members and people I had been with previously. I look into dressing rooms and other rooms that are in the backstage area.
Either from someone around me or within my mind I hear a voice say "Hospitality was always the source of the finest days of Serbia."
Upon hearing this I immediately wake up to see that the alarm is about to go off. I puzzle over the final declaration I heard in my dream. What did it mean? Was is a code designating that it was time for me to wake up?
Do we have prompts that cue us that it is time to leave a dream and awaken from sleep? Have you ever received a strange or nonsensical statement in a dream that left you puzzled after you awakened? Do you think these types of messages are cryptic codes that are saying something to us? What do you think the message I received meant?
