I have dreams that really set me back, for a whole day sometimes. I’ve always had them in fact when I was little until I was about 25, I had a recurring dream that always started a little bit further into the dream, and progressed longer each time I had it. In that dream I was stuck inside of a clock, stuck in all of the gears (which was really the inside of a room I lived in as a child) trying to get to the light switch but was never able to because the gears kept pushing me down, or trapping my nightgown. I HATED THAT DREAM and thankfully it’s been gone for sometime now.
Two nights ago, I had another bad one.
I felt lucid, like I was completely awake but unable to move or get out of bed. Someone broke into our family room through the window and headed upstairs, again I could not move. I kept thinking I was hearing Ruby cry, but then it was as if I’d drift off to sleep in the dream only to be woken up by loud thumps. Once I finally “woke up” in the dream itself I ran out of my room and nothing was missing from the house, I ran upstairs and Ruby was asleep in her crib but her window was open and the wind kept blowing her shutters around. There was a note written by little pricks in the wall made by a thumbtack. I couldn’t make out what the note said, but right above her crib (Which was on a different wall than it is normally on) was a note written in the same manner that said “She’s mine, she’ll be mine one day” with an arrow pointing down to her.
Then I woke up for real.
I felt exhausted and panic stricken, of course everyone was ok. But I really do hate those sort of dreams, they really upset me. I wish I’d stop having them.
