Nightmares.


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?

It’s an allegory. You are the Cat, I am the snarling drooling beast in pursuit. Capture is inevitable. Stop fighting it.

Or

Central heating and cheddar cheese.

Doc, there was no cheese eaten last night, and what would central heating have to do with it?
Twenty, you keep that drunken mutt in your own yard if you know what's good for you. Don't have me come over there.

The black dog is an archetype much used in blues music, and represents a penis. I won't say any more than that, or suggest how to prevent this dream from recurring.

LOL, Footsie, are you presenting your credentials for FMC's approval?

Footie - you're nuts. The black dog does not represent the penis. Not much DOES represent the penis, unles you're Freudian, in which case, EVERYTHING does. But I think Freud was full of shite.

The black dog is clearly some project or responsibility that you haven't attended to, that is nagging at you. Bah! Can't be your mum, could it?

Maybe, I could see how that works, Andraste. But short of murdering my mother and burying her at a crossroads, under a full moon with a string of garlic around her neck and a stake through her heart what else might I do to curb nightmares? Is there anything I can do?

You have nightmares if you're too happy when you're awake. You have wonderful dreams if your wakeful life is unhappy. It balances things out. Being too happy is not good for you, but only gorillas and buddhists know this.

Well, the new age hippies advise "lucid dreaming." This is where you supposedly try to realize within the dream that it's a dream and turn around and face whatever horrible thing is chasing you. They say most of those nightmare creatures turn into much less threatening things when you actually challenge them...

Not sure how you're supposed to do that when you're terrified, but...

I have terrible nightmares when I'm 'detoxing' or working off a terrible hangover or drinking binge. But I had huge success when I gave up religion and its particular guilt/fear/angst crap...then I could turn around in one of my most frightening nightmares and told the devil to go and get stuffed.

I'm blissfully free of all religious fears and guilt now.

GB, thank you for breaking the gorilla/buddhist code, sort of like freemasons is it?

I had a fairly quiet weekend after my self and my sister's mini beer fest the other week, Andraste so I can't even blame that. And regardless of what the hippies say about lucid dreaming, there was no bloody way I was skidding to a halt to confront this thing last night. Remember the beast in Ghostbusters? It was kind of like that but jet black, and it ran side to side, really fast, with snapping foaming jaws. Even in my dream I was saying...'Holy shit!' before running for my life. Naturally my legs were like lead.

Me happen to know little something bout dreams (being about only topic that come up when boogie man come for tea).

Lets see here...

"I got chased all over the place by what I can only describe as a hound from hell." - You am being hounded by a problem that you can't run away from?

"He was black, he was enormous and powerful, he had huge snapping jaws, " - So you think the problem am bigger than you can handel and will cause you harm if it catches up to you?

"he didn't run straight either, he ran side to side, and as he did he made this strange rasping panting howling growl." - So the problem am not coming straight at you, moving forward, catching up or going away, but rather moving back and forth making strange sounds? Did rasping panting howling growl sound like labored breathing? Like it might be a suffocating problem?

"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 airborne and I had to run again." - So even as you overcome some obstacles, problem am still there, not going away, not letting you breathe but keeping you on the go?

So from what little me hear about dream it sound like you feel like you got some big scary suffocating problem the am not necessarily coming at you but it am not going away and no matter what you do it just keeps up with you.

Now to stop it, you need deal with whatever big black dog am in you real life and make it go away there first. Dog may need shot, put down, or just given nice treat and belly rubbed. But if you just keep running from it, it just going to keep following you and running side to side, scaring you.
