I don’t quite understand how the brain works. Nor the meaning of dreams, if they even have a meaning at all. But I often find myself researching what dreaming about snakes means, or what is the meaning behind almost being ran over by a deceased relative. Sometimes these meanings make sense but most times they simply don’t. Dreaming of a ghost means something that is no longer obtainable or within reach. But it also could mean that you should move on and abandon your outdated modes of thinking and behavior.
Let me share with you my worst nightmare -to date. It was scary and felt quite real…which makes nightmares that much worse than necessary.
Nightmares: Almost killed by a ghost
It started with me, along with my husband and sons, walking into our new home which I inherited from my Grandfather. As we walked into the house I noticed this picture of my Grandfather on top of the mantle (of course, this man is not my Grandfather in real life).
The next morning I felt this presence and as soon as I realized that said presence was a ghost/spirit and that it belonged to my Grandfather I was picked up by the throat and slammed into the closet (which looked just like my Grandma -who may rest in peace). I freaked out and tried to scream but I couldn’t. It felt as if I had swallowed my tongue.
Next scene was of me telling Tyler that there was a ghost in the house and that it was trying to harm me. We spent that night somewhere else. We decided to move out of the house immediately and went to pick up all our belongings that afternoon.
I felt so uneasy being there. I knew I was being watched. When we were about to leave (I recall my husband shaving in the bathroom) I received a text saying “Are you ready to play? 9:42pm”. Somehow the ghost got his hands on an iPhone!
It was then that I realized it was a dream…odd thing was, I couldn’t wake up. I tried to yell in real life to get myself to wake up. But it felt as if I has swallowed my tongue.
I turned to tell Tyler that we had to leave and I showed him the phone. We managed to get the boys out of the house and into the car when I was pulled back inside and the house caught on fire. Thankfully I managed to snap out of the dream at this point; I might have also hit my husband on the chest as I jumped awake.
I have never been so scared after a dream. It was such a terrifying dream, I cried.
Have you ever had a nightmare that haunted you for days?
