A Terrible Nightmare
April 28, 2012 1:33am CST
How do you deal with a nightmare that keeps coming back? One that has bad images too scary you don't ever want to close your eyes again. How can you sleep when each time you do images of death flashes right before you? If a love one is suffering from this, how can you help him or her calm down?

I don't think you can do anything about your nightmares.. I don't think we have any control over our dreams. Some are our subconcious.. things we want or desire, either openly or privately, come to life in our dreams. Some are what we really want and maybe didn't even realise. But then.. some are just complete crap, and are utterly random! lol!

exactly. but although they say that dreams carry messages, often the message they carry doesn't actually have anything to do with the dream. for example, if you dream that your partner is cheating on you, often that doesn't actually mean that they are cheating on you, or that they may in the future, often it has another meaning. like for example, you are insecure and are scared you aren't enough for them.. so the dream is about your feelings, not what might happen. or say.. if your partner has a dream he's still with his ex, and hasn't met you yet, or isn't with you but you are there as well.. that won't mean he wants to be with his ex, it probably has another meaning.. like he's scared of loosing you etc. know what i mean?

I think everybody has had a nightmare sometimes. It is said that this could happen when you eat too much before you asleep. Then it is good to do exercises, a while before you go to sleep, which can relax your body, so that you can rest well. Stretching or walking are good exercises which can help you to relax.

I never had such dream before and I am glad I don't have to suffer from it. It is scary to even close the eyes if one always get such terrible nightmare. Each time I get to sleep I will make sure I don't think and recall any bad and negative thought to avoid having a nightmare. Is it you who have that terrible nightmare?

If you're having the same dream over and over again, then I think you should really take a minute to think about what that dream might really mean to you. For example, a while ago, I kept having a dream that my friends had gone and I had no way to talk to them. From that, I realised that I was worried about leaving University incase I never got to see them again. Because I worked out what I was worried about, I then stopped having the dreams because I think that I had gained the information that I need from that dream so I wasn't too worried about having it again now that I knew what it meant for me.

Actually I never encountered this problem myself or with other people I know. Sometimes nightmares happens once in a while and never comes back. Though it is really possible to happen. Maybe you can trace the real cause of the nightmare. Try to see if it is psychological or spiritual in nature or other else.

Hello toniganzon. Let me just ask, do you watch horror or suspense movies too much? If yes, it seems like the thoughts of the movie is still inside you. I recommend lessening watching those kinds of films. Yet, I you are not a movie watcher, I think the two best tips that I can give you are to meditate and pray before sleeping. Meditating will calm your mind before you sleep, erase some type of discomfort or stress your mind had for that day. Meanwhile, praying enhances your spirituality and inner peace. Have a goodnight sleep my friend.
