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.

    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!
