A Nightmare Where Nothing Happens

United States
February 6, 2009 9:22pm CST
I've been having these nightmares lately where nothing happens. It's the weirdest thing. I'll be in the dream and I'll be in a room, and I just have this creepy feeling like something's going to happen, but it nothing does. Or I'll be walking around and I'll come to a room and just get a bad feeling about it and won't go in. But when I wake up I'll be all nervous and jumpy. They're worse than actual nightmares.

Hi... I think I can help out with an interpretation of your dream. First, I would like to explain that the actual places and objects you see in your dream all have meanings... in other words, what you see is not the same as the message it carries to you. I'll attempt to explain the meaning here, and would be interested to know if I came close or not after you've considered it. [i]Dreaming that you are in a room, denotes a particular aspect of your Self or a particular relationship. Dreams involving various types of rooms often relate to hidden areas of the conscious mind and different aspects of your personality. From your description, I would say that whilst dreaming, you are in a dark, eerie or confining room, which makes you feel uneasy. This means that you feel trapped or repressed in some situation in your waking life. The feeling of anxiety about the room and after you wake, could be a reflection of what you feel in your waking life. Your anxiety about this room may be the result of unexpressed emotions, resentment, and hostility in your waking life... something you can't talk to others about, perhaps, or you find difficulty in showing your emotions about. This could be in a relationship, at work, family, whatever.[/i] The whole dream would suggest to me that you feel trapped or repressed in some situation or relationship because you're unable to show your emotions to whomever is concerned, or you're feeling resentful and hostile towards somebody who is either a work colleage or someone closer to you. You feel you can't speak out about this for some reason though, so I need you to think about this. Could it be somebody in authority, like a boss, a parent or somebody whom you would normally look up to? Does somebody or something make you feel uneasy every time you come across them/it? I would be interested to know please, how close I am with this. I've been studying dream interpretation for a couple of years, but your description of your dream is quite vague and if you could offer a little more, I might be able to translate it better. However, you might get something from what I've told you here... I hope so. You needn't fear this dream, or regard it as a nightmare. You just have to get over the feeling of resentfulness and learn how to show your emotions or discuss this with whomever is concerned so that you can resolve the issues and get these dreams to stop. Brightest Blessings... I hope I've been of some help to you.

Wow, that really helped. I do keep a lot of stuff bundled up inside. As far as my dreams go, you know how in a nightmare something usually happens to you or you see something that scares you. In my dreams, nothing happens, but I just have this eerie feeling like something's going to happen, then I wake up. For example in one of my recurring dreams I'm alone in my room with the lights off. No monster or anything comes out, I'm just sitting there. But I just have this feeling and I'm terrified.

Then your dream is as I first interpreted my friend. Now you know what the reason is for the dream, I feel you need to find a way to release whatever is kept bundled up inside you. If you can sit down with whoever else is concerned and clear up these feelings by talking with that/those people and resolving the concerns you have. If you can do that, I think you'll find that the dreams will cease, and you'll probably dream pleasant dreams about "flying". Please let me know how you cope with this and how you progress. I should be very interested to know whether you can find the wherewithall to resolve your concerns and end your "nightmares".

This is an unusual kind of nightmare and it might be related to feelings rather than images. Dreams are generated in the subconscious and is generally associated with images. I think you are touching on a deeper sense or source which relate to feelings. Cheers!!
