I have read your page about dreams and you seem to know a lot. I was wondering if you could help me?
I have had the same dream over and over again and I don't understand it. It has occured 3 nights in a row the same way. I wake up and I am so afraid that I can't even move. I can't help but feel like something very bad is about to happen and I can't stop it. It has caused me to not sleep for several days out of fear that it will happen again. I hope it's just a nightmare, but I was hoping you could help make it more clear.
Hi there, first off you need to understand what dreams are, they are a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person's mind during sleep, so something must have caused you to feel like this...bad thoughts maybe? something on your mind or has happened to someone?
I can assure you it is just a bad dream, and the more you think about it, the more it comes back.
What helps me during times of bad dreams is trying to forget it, think happy thoughts think about something else, something happy great and fantastic, close your eyes and listen to music, music that helps you relax, imagine something...a beach a countryside a forest a city and close your eyes and be in that place in your mind..
There are free audio tapes you can download online as relaxation techniques that may help if you are under stress or have things on your mind that are preventing you from sleeping, they help...
Just don't worry, I've had many nightmares, and they go away, they're not real, they're not going to come true, it's only your mind that thinks that, and when something similar to the dream does happen we seem to believe the dream was real when it is just a coincidence, but rarely do dreams like you dreamt about come true.
You will be fine
I'm sorry for taking so long to write you back. When you say you can't move are you meaning you literally can't move? It sounds like a type of dream where your mind wakes up but your body is still asleep. This type of phenomena causes anxiety and immense fear while experiencing it. I had this happen to me a few times. Let me know if this is what you are experiencing.

I can't figure out why people seem to be upset when someone doesn't get over their sadness.I purposefully didn't say "can't get over their sadness" or "won't get over their sadness" or "don't want to get over their sadness" because I am not sure which it is that people...

For some reason, I can't seem to get any feedback on Facebook when I share my writings there.It seems a little discouraging that very few people that I know read my stuff. I also have an excerpt from my newly published book posted here in Hubpages and shared on FB, which, of course, nobody...
