Just woke up from a dream knowing I’d had it before. This dream stars the house that I grew up in being possessed by a very dark entity that can simply smother my existence. I always end up having a scary showdown with this big, evil, black, oppressive mass (much like the ‘monster’ in the TV show Lost, but instead of just black smoke, like condensed evil that is very formidable).
I’ve read that recurring dreams gives insights into oneself. Many philosophers and scientist have studied their meanings and purpose or even given them insights into the future or past of the dreamer. Sigmund Feud found that dreams could be analyzed to understand how the unconscious worked and found dreams often showed the mind dealing with or repressing feelings. The sleeping prophet, Edgar Cayce was able to read dreams to help people understand their spiritual, mental, and physical being, giving guidance on the ‘correct’ course to continue on.
Recurring dreams repeatedly point out something you need to fix. I believe the message in my particular dream in that I need to stop letting the negativity of others affect my self. Not only do I need to deny the negativity entry so that it cannot overtake me, but I need to stand up to it with impenetrably positive core that allows me to do what I need to do.
I think it is wise for anyone that knows they had the same dream more than once, to think about what is negatively affecting them in their life that the dream is pointing out, and address it. Especially if your repeating dream is a nightmare like mine!
