Thread: Nightmares

    I haven't had something that I would call a nightmare since I was little. I was very sick and started dreaming about "Gornaya Gora" (this was in Ukraine, in English it translates to "Mountainous Mountain"). Gornaya Gora was a girl who lived in the mountains and chased after dogs and people. In the nightmare my grandparents and I were living in a little shed on a mountain and when we saw her chasing dogs around outside we started boarding up every crack in our little shed, but we forgot one at the top and when I looked up I saw her big bulging eye staring down at me.

    I woke up screaming and crying CONVINCED that Gornaya Gora was real - it's like that night she was just real, like she was a fact of life. I kept trying to explain to my mom, wondering why she doesn't understand who I'm talking about. She took me to sleep in her bed, but I couldn't sleep at all because every little pattern in the sheet or wallpaper turned into her face and when I closed my eyes I just saw her face floating up at me. I've had two other dreams about Gornaya Gora and it was my most vivid, recurring nightmare.

    I'd definitely suggest re-looking at that book. It sounds like what you learned when you talk about changing your dream is Lucid Dreaming - lucid dreaming is when you know you're dreaming. When you know you're in a dream, you can learn to control it. Most people have a lucid dream a few times in their lifetime on accident, but people can learn how to "wake up" and become conscious in their dream and then it gets really fun

    when I was young, I would always have bad dreams about my dad. there was like, these pink, yellow, and green fields with floating flowers and wire fences randomly. Then there was a big black tower where my father was, with a bomb(weird, huh?) and i had to take him the bomb. I didnt want to, and just as he was about to blow it up, I woke up. I had these dreams for about four five years, until i was about 8. weird.

    I've always had bad dreams and can usually wake myself up. I've been sick a few times from sleep deprivation, it's bad when sleep is worse than being awake.
    The worst dreams are the ones you know are going to come true.

    Thankyou, I couldn't for the life of me remember the term Lucid dreaming. It can be alot of fun, I remember my main way of turning a bad dream good was to fly.

    Bordeaux.....

    I was abused as a child by a neighbour that lived down the road. The police refused to prosecute him because he had no prior record and of course at 13yo I had no proof.

    It is something that has never left me although I thought it had. When I met my OH I started having the most horrific nightmares about the abuse although it wasnt happening to me....he was doing it to his son and daughter (both approx my age). I went to the doc and he gave me a light sleeping tablet to take because in the end I refused to sleep because no matter what I did....I would continue having these dreams..... over and over and over.

    The tablets helped me sleep but didnt stop the dreams......In the end it took me to go back to that mans house and confront him (one of the most horrible days of my life)! I stood there and told him that I knew what he did to me was WRONG and that I would never forgive him. I told him I wouldnt tell his wife, daughter or son (dont know if they knew about it) however if it was ever reported that he abused them I would be in court faster than he could even think of denying it!

    TBH I truly think that was the trigger to stopping those horrible dreams I no longer feel guilty; not for what happened, but for what could happen to his children!

    It was a horrible horrible day but I had my mum there for support and it has honestly helped to no end!

    I have told you my story because I would liek you to consider facing your fear

    lol thats very odd.

    I cant remember most of it. But it did envolve keeping a dream journal that you write as soon as you wake up as you forget something like 80% of the dream 10 min after you wake and exercises to help you remember more. Then I used to have to tell myself what I wanted to dream about before I went to bed.
    There are other things as well, I'll look for the book when I go home.
