All nightmares are serious warnings for the dreamer. They are so unpleasant that many times the dreamer tries to avoid sleeping in order to stop seeing them, but their importance is crucial for his or her safety.
Nightmares reflect real dangers existent in the human brain and psyche as well as in the outside world.
They have the general meaning of an alarm, working like all alarms that try to protect you when someone is trying to steal your store or your car. They try to protect you from losing your mental health first of all, and many times, from losing other things that belong to your daily life.
As an example of a very important nightmare, I can mention the case of a dreamer who participated in my summer offer of free professional dream translation in 2008. She saw a dream in which she was in her bed bleeding, but she could not move.
This dream was indicating great danger. Since she was in her bed, she was in the position of a patient who is sick. She could not move because she could not control her behavior: she was dominated by the wild side of her conscience. She was bleeding because she was suffering too much in this situation. Blood represents pain.
This dreamer had had a very strong suicidal tendency from the time of her childhood; however her family didn’t give any importance to her nightmares. Fortunately she was helped through dream translation, and this way, she could overcome her depression and continue living without thinking about death all the time.
Nightmares must be always respected as very serious indications of psychical abnormalities or indications that the mental health of the dreamer is in danger. Recurring nightmares try to remind the dreamer of a certain obligation, something that he or she is postponing, but that must be done, otherwise he will suffer very much, or they try to emphasize to the dreamer something that he or she must understand in order to be able to overcome all the difficulties of life.
Recurring nightmares are constant alarms, because the dreamer is in constant danger.
Another example of a classical nightmare is a dream in which the dreamer keeps falling, without end. This is a very common nightmare that indicates to the dreamer that he or she will have many deceptions, and lose the floor under their feet. This kind of nightmare works as a preparation, so that the dreamer may be strong when facing all the deceptions that are in his way.
You can avoid seeing nightmares by following the guidance of the unconscious mind in your daily dreams, since you’ll learn how to solve all your problems, and overcome all mental illnesses.
The unconscious mind won’t need to send you shocking nightmares in order to alarm you: you’ll be protected and guided by regular warnings that don’t have the horrible aspect of nightmares, since they give you gradual lessons.
