Nightmares, what the hell causes them? Is it the subconscious? Old memories? What we eat late at night? What?
Last night I got chased all over the place by what I can only describe as a hound from hell. He was black, he was enormous and powerful, he had huge snapping jaws, he did't run straight either, he ran side to side, and as he did he made this strange rasping panting howling growl. I leaped over a ravine in my dreams and landed on the other side, and before I even had a chance to catch my breath I could see he was airborn and I had to run again.
I was so relieved when I woke up at 4:20.
I have always been a vivid dreamer, always, but lately nightmares are becoming more and more prevalent. Sometimes I can recognise that I am dreaming and make myself wake up, but mostly I cannot. Sometimes my dreams can be very useful, but not nightmares, and I would like to stop having them. So come on, anyone have any ideas?
