      I've never gone under the name Summerlander anywhere, and I try not to let my conversations become emotional.

      If a s.t.a.l.k.e.r. includes being a Trespasser, Killer, and Robber then it doesn't sound too far off actually.

      And good point - yes, let's let this return to being about nightmares.

      In the same logic, american soldiers are trespassers, killers and Robbers too..... so they are rapist and stalkers :logic_fail:

      This is getting even more off-topic. Let's just drop it, ok?

      I’ve had various themes in my nightmares and bad dreams over the years, but none of them have lasted long enough for me to be able to call them typical. Lately, the danger is usually some kind of mechanical failure or environmental hazard rather than a threatening figure. And I usually manage to respond pretty constructively. I credit this entirely to the mornings my friends and I spent drilling each other over the “Worst Case Scenario Survival Guide” before classes started back in middle school. If I ever dream of finding myself in a wildebeest stampede, I hope I’d realize it was a dream—but if not, I’d at least have the satisfaction of being the only person who’s ever been able to put their advice into practice.

      Speaking of which…

      If memory serves, the guide’s recommendation here is: forget the upper body. Use the knee. The muscles are stronger, the leverage is better, and it’s ideally placed for what you’re about to do with it.

      Welcome to the dark side!! Unleash your dark side at Circus Gothica!

      There is at least one dream that I posted here where I watched in horror as my sleeping self was devoured by Colony of African Driver Ants. I woke up and apparently I was dehydrated, though. It's not like I'm afraid of ants or anything, it was just one of those nights where I was sick. It was like watching an episode of 1000 ways to die.
      The Fact: My mom's brother was murdered on Halloween. It happened before I was born, though. You want dark? That's dark.

      Perhaps you need to be the hunter instead of being the hunted. Who knows, maybe at some level we are playing an elaborate Chess game or something and when you are scared with fear or even sick in part of our subconscious wins. You know, instead of singing, 1,2 Freddy's Coming For You, we can sing, 1,2, Freddy we are coming for you. That way, we can somehow prepare ourselves from that hit of fear.

      This was a dream scenario right, just a nightmare right?

      My nightmares are usually about being late for an exam or looking into a mirror and watching my teeth fall out

      I had a non-lucid nightmare last night about witnessing to occult sacrifice that was at a place called Devil's Stomping Grounds? I remember that there were people in black ritual robes they stood around a circle and they were about to use someone for a sacrifice. It was at night. Then all of a sudden, everything went black. Then I woke up levitating in the middle of this circle. It was now in the middle of the day. It felt like something or someone was holding me by the throat. I remember that I struggle to breathe and to think the incantation to stop the madness. Then I woke up.
      What do you think?

      I don't know what to make of that one. Circles are pretty archetypal, which I think means the dream was from a deep part of the unconscious. Trying to thin of what the devil worshipers could mean - first thought, maybe they're us - the people on this thread who are talking so much about the devil? Or maybe some parts of yourself?

      Where were you in relation to the circle of robed figures, were you in the middle? Maybe you were the one about to be sacrificed?

      No idea what to make of the black out or missing time or whatever - sudden shift from night to day. It seems like a good thing - they disappeared and night turned to day. No ideas on what being choked means. Possibly you were having actual trouble breathing for real? Or it might refer to your ability to communicate, to speak. Just throwing out some ideas, maybe it can help spark your understanding.
