Help interpret?

Postby Cmdh » Fri Sep 14, 2018 11:17 pm

Tonight I had an extremely displeasing and anxiety ridden dream, it started normal and nice but I had this overwhelming feeling that something was wrong. As my dream shifted from "pleasant" to fearful I remember telling myself that I had to be dreaming and usually when that happens I wake up, I didn't. So I was convinced it was real, I was running but it felt like I was actually running not that slow, weak feeling run I normally have in dreams. I then "awoke" clinging to my husband and sobbing and he told me that my dream was real and that it had all happened but I couldn't remember most of what happened after the initial dream. My dream progressed to other people in my family saying that it was real and they were just glad I was okay but I still felt uneasy and confused and scared. That is when I woke up to reality in the middle of a panic attack. Does anyone have any idea what I experienced and why? Just thinking about it makes me feel uneasy because it still feels real and I remember every detail several hours later. I have only become lucid in one dream before and I woke up as soon as I had realized I was dreaming. This is also my first ever dream within a dream.

I have always had lucid dreams ever since I was a child - The one thing I always remember and what works for me, If I pinch myself and I dont feel it I am always in a dream. When I get to spots that are scary and have me anxiety ridden, I pinch myself, and that is how I remind myself I am dreaming and I can continue the LUCID dream. When I have had enough , I always Shout , Wake Up , Wake up - so far that has not failed me yet.
I have a constant lucid ending to dreams, it involves waking up within a dream and it has happened many times. If a regular dream goes bad or gets intense, I always seem to wakeup (inside my dream) in my childhood home. It feels real dark and dingy and almost dilapidated. but I get out of bed and go to the bathroom , I always look into my parents room (as it was next to the bathroom) and I always see death and decomposing material on the floor. I start to brush my teeth and I can feel the evil around me , and always when I walk down stairs the demon appears. the first time this dream scared the crap out of me. but when it always starts , I always pinch myself before I get out of bed to remind me I am dreaming ( it removes a lot of the anxiety) then I continue the dream to see if it goes anywhere else, It never does. When the demon apearrs, I yell at him this is a dream and I need to Wake up , Wake up, sometimes it is immediate, sometimes I have to say it a few times. but it has not failed me yet.

I know it is not much of an interpretation, but I just wanted to share my experience of getting through them without loosing your mind :)

I wish I could confirm that, however, I personally actually *feel pain* in my dreams. It may or may not work for the OP, it could give him some wrong certainty though if he has the same pain sensation in dreams I've got.

What I'd recommend is twofold: either face your fear, calmly, and knowing it can't do anything to you (depending on the level of dream it is). Alternatively, try to shit and change the dream and make it to your liking, mustering all of your willpower to change it accordingly. It's sort of knowing something will be there and manifesting that thought; often, if your dream isn't invaded by outside spirits, you can take sufficient control to turn everything to your liking. Also, if you can change aspects about your dream by materialising it inside of your dream, I'd say you've got even better proof than sensing pain :P

Afternoons are ideal. Turn off your smartphone and make sure that no one can contact you. Then find something that can successfully disrupt your nap, such as ambient music and sharp spotlights. The key is to test your consciousness while asleep, lights on and music playing in the background. While dreaming, find a light switch and flick it. It won't work and, as a result, your consciousness will enter your unconscious mind, which is what we call "going lucid." Once this is achieved, you have the opportunity to create on your own dreamscape and scenarios. Good luck.
