Okay, I'm dredging this thread up because last night I had a dream. I posted on this on another message board, but I'm intrigued by this dream, I've never experienced anything like it in my life. I suppose it would be called a nightmare because when I woke up it took over 5 minutes to shake the feeling of extreme fear. Normally I enjoy having odd dreams and find them intersting, but this provided me with nothing but a feeling of absolute terror when I awoke.
I woke up at almost exactly 6:00 AM.
In the dream I was in my living room at my parents house. There was a girl and a dog that kept going over to the corner of the room and then staring at the ceiling... I would go over and look but could see nothing, and neither figure would say a word to me no matter how much I questioned them.
After that went on for awhile the phone rang and I picked it up. There was a black woman on the phone (don't ask I just know it was) and she asked me a very large number of questions but before I could reply she hung up. Not two seconds after that there was a feeling like being in the middle of a ten megaton explosion (or how I would invision it). It felt like an earthquake, my hearing went out of phaze, everything went to black and it felt like I had been massively rocked by the explosion, so much so that my entire body hurt.
I woke up and I was trembling and curled unbelievably tight in the fetal position, it still felt like I had been walloped directly in the chest with a sledgehammer, I had trouble breathing, my hearing actually felt still screwed up and it took forever for my eyes to adjust. I gained some compsure and realized that I was in my room, even then it took me a good 5 minutes for the feeling to pass...
I'm writing this out to try and get the thoughts out of my head, for some reason this really bothered me and the feeling of terror persisted for part of the morning as well. Plus I've never woken up with the actual physical feeling persisting after the dream has passed.
Anyone do any dream insight work as a hobby? I was trying think of things that have happened in the last few days that I could tie the dream too but was unable to come up with anything.
