๐Ÿ’กPossible meaning

These can be very painful dreams; however, there is a reason your mind will go through these experiences. Such a dream simply signifies the unprocessed emotions left over from a hard day that needs to vent out so you can be at peace. That is why these are called "Venting Dreams". We can also have this type of dream when our mind is afraid and is replaying traumatic events hoping to find new ways to keep you safe.

๐Ÿงญ Direction

Bad omen

Learn to process these experiences and emotions while you are awake so that you do not take them into your dreams. Talk with a mental health professional, work on yourself and grow. By learning to become aware of emotional conflict inside of yourself and accepting all parts of you, you will find peace again.

โค๏ธ Feelings

The dream of a nightmare evokes intense fear, anxiety, and distress. It leaves a person feeling unsettled, overwhelmed, and helpless. Nightmares often bring a sense of dread, terror, and unease, leaving a lasting impact on one's emotions. The experience can be deeply disturbing, causing a person to wake up in a state of panic and uneasiness.

Dream

I had a nightmare. I'm at the terrain, my mom and dad go home in Janeth's car and I park my dad's car in the terrain of a neighbor. Then I realize that I should have driven home instead. Next thing I remember is being at the living room at Jamay and Janeth is telling me I suffered mental issues again. I don't remember how I got here but she tells me my dad called one of his employees to drive me home and that I was talking nonsense. I'm very worried. I'm in my bed at Jamay and I start to make horrible sounds I fall out of bed and I make weird movements, I'm just looking at everything but I can't control it, it's like being possesed. I wake up very frightened.

Dream

I dreamed that I was the wife of Trump who I can't stand. I should probably say it's a night mare. But I was still me and somehow his wife at one point we were sleeping in bed and he was upset and crying and pouting, and I was trying to reassure him that he would win and then he sees some guy out the window and the guy spying on us , so he goes outside and he shoots the guy. Iโ€™m upset about this and say well. You canโ€™t just leave him there like that and Trump says theyโ€™ll take care of it then later on weโ€™re driving around in limo and going to various parties and shaking hands with people, Iโ€™m dressed more like Laura Bush and feel really uncomfortable. At some point we go to a party in the area where I used to work and Iโ€™m freaking out because I think people will recognize that itโ€™s me and not Trumpโ€™s wife. I see some people from my old job and they recognize me, so I go up to them and say please out me please donโ€™t out me.

Dream

I had a very short nightmare. In the dream I woke up to go to the bathroom. Everything was my normal reality, my bedroom and bathroom. I was trying to go pee and it hurt and I suddenly noticed that my cat Nels was in the toilet. For context, this is a cat that I have that is less than a year old and I'm very close with him. The cat seemed to be stuck and struggling under the water. I was reaching in and trying to get him but for some reason I couldn't touch or grip him. The water in the toilet started rising, along with my panic. I started trying to turn off the water valve to stop the water and I started saying to myself, please let this be a dream over and over. I woke up very much crying but so relieved

Dream

I had a dream about my dog Dusha that I don't have anymore. It was a nightmare and it started with me being at this big wedding thing. And I was supposed to marry my friend Nina, a girl, because of some conspiracy. But it was not today that I was supposed to marry here. My family has just asked me to fix this and marry her and it had to be a girl because it had to be a gay wedding for some reason. And I was walking through the hole and thinking about that and I said I don't want to do that. and Nina was walking in front of me and then somebody booked a flight and it was happening already the next morning But they didn't give me any information. I just had one email. It didn't say where it was supposed to be or how it worked or check-in information, nothing. So I was angry, I thought it was my brother or some man that booked this flight that was close to me. I don't remember who it was, but I think it was my brother. And I haven't talked to Nina about the conspiracy to marry. She would probably agree to it. And I thought, oh my God, she's a drunk and she can be really mean. I don't think that this is a good idea. I don't want to be married to this person. and then it turned out that I would have to But I don't remember the reasons why in the dream. And then I was walking around, I don't remember how the dream moved in this direction, but Tusha, my dog that I had to give away a long time ago, she was in the dream too, but she was my dog in the dream. She was walking around being cute and I took her and then she was coming up to another dog. My mom was holding her on the leash. but she let her get close to the dog and Tusha has aggression problems. so she was biting at the other dog but she didn't bite them because my mom pulled her leash back But the other dog bit her, or we didn't see that it did, but it looked like it did. And then she was hurt and she came back and came to me and then I was like, Mom, what are you doing? And I took the leash from her and I unleashed her and I took her with me. And she was so scared that she was starting to bite at me, too. But she didn't manage, and she was just doing it to scare me, and I didn't think anything of it. Because I trusted her that she wouldn't attack me. And then I let her lay for a little while. She was bleeding from her leg and there was a lot of blood coming. and then I came back to her and I tried to touch her a little bit and I said Tusha come on let me lift you we need to take you okay we need to take care of this And when I saw her hurt, I was so close to tears. I was so sad and emotional. This was my doggie, and she was hurt. And then I went and picked her up and I put her in my dad's room. I was in my dad's room in my family home, my childhood home. And then I took a pillow and I put it under her and I also took paper wipes and I put them under her as well so that she doesn't dirty the pillow. There was a lot of blood and I thought I need to take care of this, I need to take her to a doctor. But first I wanted to disinfect the wound. I knew it would hurt, but that's what we needed to do as fast as possible. So just looking for disinfection and some bandages so I could bandage it up for now that it's not bleeding as much.

Lucid Dreaming

Dream

last night the first dream I remember was almost a lucid dream I had in the past. It was one of the nightmares I had in the past Where I was stuck in the Middle East and captured by some terrorist and I had to figure out how to escape. That dream led me to have a sleep paralysis where a black shadowy figure was attempting to suck itself into my mouth. That said, I fought it off and I was able to wake up, not afraid this time because it wasn't able to get me.

Dream

It was a nightmare about my father's death. My family were at home in Lukhovitsy or something like that (I don't remember where we were) and then he asked us to go for a walk with him. But the important thing - he was fatally ill and it was the worst and terrible thing I've ever seen, because I love him so much. After we came out of our home we went for a walk and when we were going on the street behind houses he fell down on the ground and he was already died. I ran to him with tears in my eyes and I tried to wake him up or something like that, but he didn't open his eyes anymore. After my mom pulled me away I couldn't help but cried out even more. After a while we came home and I started reading my father's notebook and I found out so much poetry. I couldn't help but cried out again, but my mom yelled at me.

I had a nightmare that my dad, my sister and I were in his car driving at night. There was a target to the right of the road and it was the only thing that was bright. Surrounding us in the car were other cars that were so packed and crowded, the doors were touching. The cars were driving on a huge railroad ans were slowly moving foward. I was panicked and I was urging my dad to get us out the car and run away from the place but he ignored me. The railroad continued off a cliff but was broken off at the end. Eventually we reached the end of the railroad and fell to our deaths at the end of the dream
