View Full Version : A Very Disturbing Dream
Hey all. It's me again. I was wondering on something once again. The other night I had a wonderful 14 hours of rest. However, it wasn't all that
wonderful. I had this disturbing dream that was conflicting with my beliefs on things. I for one, do not believe in any type or religion, just so you
Well, the dream was about some satanic figure trying to posses my body at one point in it. I know that, that is very disturbing for someone like
me to even HAVE such a dream like that, since I don't believe in such things, but while I was in the dream, I was of course fighting him off, and
I eventually won. But what disturbs me is,
'What if I haven't?'
It is not unusual for a person with no religious beliefs to have dreams that involve religious figures. They are, after all, symbols that are shoved down our throats and thrown at our faces from day one. They lurk in your subconscious. As far as your dream goes, it sounds like somewhere in your life you are trying to make a decision. Maybe you are considering taking up a religion? Ask yourself what the devil in your dream represented to you. Don't think of it as a devil, think of it as an emotion or a situation. What would it be?
But I was so curious. I mean I have very complex emotions. Like, one time I'm very depressed and another time I'm extremely happy. So it just flip flops. I also have no relationships with hardly anyone so I don't think its a relationship issue. A situation for me? Hmm... I really don't have much of a life. Except for the fact for trying to look for UFOs and such. Sometimes I just think life is just too dang complex and want to give up when things look bleek, but things won't be getting much better for me.

Hi BIG C,
firstly have you tried to eliminate the obvious?
By that I mean, had you recently watched or read any horror fiction?
Had you been in any discussion or been told anything about demon possession by anyone?
In other words, could it have been on your mind in any way?
If none of the above fit the bill, then I would describe it as an anxiety dream.
The demon represents a big problem in your life and you are conciously fighting it.
The profile you have given of yourself describes a lonely, shy and sadly pessimistic person who suffers bouts of manic depression, please forgive me if I'm wrong in my assertion but that's what jumps out at me.
Could your lack of relationships be causing you anxiety?
Could it be something unresolved from your childhood or another period in your life?
I hope you find peace.
You should try to focus all that energy into something creative. Don't let it simmer inside of you. Bring it out and dump it on a canvas or a word processor. Get a box of crayons--it doesn't matter what you use.
It sounds like your imagination is at work. Bring it out and express it. Then step back and have a look.
It's all very large.
Well perhaps I could just realize the obvious. Well nothing to lose sleep over any how!
Well re-reading the statement. I figure that it could be because of lack of relationships with anyone could be the major cause of it. I just have a feel that I'm not welcome here at all. Humans certainly seem to care anymore on what some think.
It's your call. You're certainly not the first one to walk where you are now. I think it's good that you are exploring your dreams, feelings, and thoughts. It brings better understanding.
It's all very large.

you need to get out and meet people.
Join some kind of group or class, you know keep fit, art, acting, photography, ecology, environment etc.
Make a concious effort to be friendly and talk to strangers, they won't bite!
