Different dreams, same shadow figures

Postby DomKitty » Thu Jul 19, 2018 1:44 am

The shadows have been humanoid, no gender specific details.. they walk on two legs, have two arms and a head, there's no features to them at all (no face etc) and they're not quite solid, they're kind of see through. I'm not sure how long it's been but for a while now, no matter what I dream of I've been catching these shadows in the corner of my eye. It's always been on the periphery of my vision, when I notice and turn to get a closer look, they disappear. Over time, they started to pause.. just for a second, almost like they were looking back at me and noticing me, noticing them. It was only ever one shadow at a time.. until last night.

From what I remember, the dream started with sitting in a theater, the stage was tiny and in the corner of the room with the seats fanning out from around it. They were big comfy seats, almost arm chairs. I was sat at the front and the seats around me started filling with my ex fiancee and his family, they were being polite and friendly but due to who they had been to me I was really uncomfortable in the situation.

The next part of the dream, I was at a party.. I think it must have been an after party for whatever show we'd watched. I didn't drink or eat anything at the party but I started noticing the shadows, there were 3 of them moving around the people there. I didn't recognise the people at the party but I felt like some of them were people I'd known a long time. No one else was noticing the shadows but me. Every now and then they'd pause like they felt me looking and I'd turn away to avoid them seeing me watching them.

Now, I'm not exactly a lucid dreamer, but I have some small amount of control in my dreams. Even when I've been drinking while awake, I've never ever got to the point where I lose complete control of my body. In this dream though, the more I started to notice them and the longer I watched.. the less control I had over my body. I couldn't stand, could barely talk.. it was even a struggle just to keep my eyes open. No one noticed this was happening, except the shadows, they started moving towards me and I suddenly found myself at the bottom of the stairs looking up at them. I sat there staring at them, unable to turn away and all 3 of them rushed at me. Just as they reached me, I woke up screaming and in a panic..

If anyone can provide some insight, I'd be grateful.

Welcome to your doppelgangers! Shadows are always a piece of the hidden us - unconscious mind that reflects guilt, fear, shame, anxiety, uncertainty, etc. They can be as simple as a lack of self confidence (you at a party where you can only focus on the shadows that distract you from the people and fun around you) or they can mean a lot of other things.
It may also be that there are unresolved issues in your life that are still plaguing you - a breakup, argument, assault, etc.
They arent a warning about things to be necessarily but things that are or have already been. :cry:
