The "I can't move or talk" nightmare, what does it mean?


Have you ever had the nightmare where something or someone is holding you down and no matter how hard you try, you cannot move, and when you try to scream for help nothing comes out? Believe it or not this is a very typical nightmare, so I wonder, what does it mean?

    This could be either a manifestation from God in which he chooses to reveal himself by giving a vision of an event or something. Sometimes the person will leave their body not being able to move or talk.

    Yes, it is very terrific feeling. My son experienced it for some months. He used to sense his mother talking to him or scolding him. His body becomes sweat and he wants to extend his hand towards me(his father) but he could not move at all.

    The second example is not the same thing. In it he is actually dreaming. My understanding of the previous scenarios is that the person is not only dreaming they can't move or speak; They ACTUALLY CAN'T MOVE OR SPEAK!

    Sorry, Ken, 'night terror' is not as you describe; night terrors are intense experiences that wake a person and they cannot recall the dream content, they are very volatile and the person is moving around a great deal prior to wake up.

    I have a friend who had this 2 times per week. One night after he got held, he saw a very scary and yellow face sleeping next to him, when he shouted very loud the face disappears. He scared the hell out of me.

    It also keeps us from killing people were mad at, or rendering us susceptible to what we know to be wrong, or even what we don't normally have the courage to do. It's believed we r in our most conscious state, when we are unconscious.

    It is not like that. It is some weakness or defect in our nervous system and sense organs due to stress and strain and blood circulations.
