🧭 Direction

Bad omen

Take immediate action to stop choking out the life within you. Release yourself from harsh judgment, pressures, and toxic criticism of yourself and others. Otherwise, the light within you will die out. Please note, sometimes choking dreams may be physical and indicate that you may be experiencing sleep apnea. So it is advised to seek a consultation from your doctor or physician.

I dreamt that I was racing with somebody down a hallway and we found this coat that was really nice and I went to try it on but somehow put it on upside down and was starting to suffocate and started to panic then I was able to pull it off my face to breathe and that woke me up

I dreamt about watching TV in another house and it was dark. It looked like I was living in a jungle. Then I was playing football with my new school friends because we were playing at school. I then met these little boys and girls who were playing dodgeball although my school was an only girls school. When we went to class, I told my friends that I was going to be going to the toilet but then suddenly, my shortest friend started making rumours about me, causing me to suffocate her and hit her aggressively - it was like I had no emotion trying to kill her. And then it went around the whole school. Then the teacher gave me a message saying my shortest friend was really sorry. But instead the rumours were still spreading and when I looked at my other friend she was like β€˜ew get away from me’ and then I got so mad that I kicked her on the chin and then she was bleeding from her arm. I kept hitting her because I was extremely angry with everything but then the teachers found out but instead of putting me into detention I played with the little kids and the grown up kids for some reason. This was when the dream ended and I was relieved when I woke up. This dream felt real
