Curse Of A Black Wolf: A Nightmare For 13 Years
Ever since I was about six or so, I've had a dream about a large black wolf hunting me. Sometimes the dream would occur night after night, and sometimes it would disappear for a few days or weeks. However, the dream was always about one black wolf searching for me. In these dreams, I either watch it or hide from it or run from it or try to save someone from it, but I know that it is always looking for me and that if it ever finds me, it will kill me.
For example, in one dream of this wolf, I was not where it was, but I saw it on a large, dark castle on a dark, rainy night. It crept up behind an armored man that appeared to be guarding the castle and killed him, then grinned at me.
Another dream, it was leading a large back of black wolves, and they were attacking my school, where I had to try to get my friends away to safety and not get killed myself.
Other times, it would be hiding somewhere, such as in the woods in my back yard, and my sisters would try to go out and I had to convince them to stay with me and not go out or it'd kill them. This didn't always go so well, and I dread these nightmares, as there is nothing worse than knowing the danger someone is in and having them not listen.
In other dreams, it's looking for me, and I am hiding as it gets nearer and nearer, or am running and trying to get away. In some dreams, I get away by hiding in a tree or my home, or in one dream it was in my room where there was large pieces of bulky furniture and I was hiding in them.
I cannot describe how large this animal is, or how frightening it is to me. It's perhaps my greatest fear in dreams and in waking, other than my claustrophobia. I don't have a fear of wolves, I'm actually very fond of them and have wolf blankets and t-shirts. And yet, I have been stalked by this one throughout the course of my life. Sometimes it is very far away, sometimes it's right outside my door.
I wonder if any of you have any thoughts on this? Perhaps an interpretation of what it might mean?
