The Mind is a Strange Thing

I took a long nap Thursday evening and unfortunately had a very vivid nightmare.

I’m no expert, but my general understanding, is that dreams are a combination of thoughts and experiences all jumbled up in a nonsense sort of way. This one however, felt like it had gone deep into my mind and pick locked all the dusty filing cabinets. These were things that I hadn’t given thought to in quite some time…at least not on a conscious level.

I won’t go into the details of this dream, as it was an odd compilation of negative emotions and events from my life. A traumatic event from childhood seemed to be the foundation of this dream, and that is an event I’m not quite ready to share. I woke up drenched in sweat and feeling so distraught, that I contemplated calling my psychologist. I’m not sure what triggered this nightmare, but I know I never want to experience it again.

Thanks for reading. Wishing you all sweet dreams.

With love,

  1. I hope you have recovered from your nightmare. The mind truly is strange in the way it can spring these things on you. The last nightmare I had, the feelings I felt in the dream stuck with me all day. Xxx

  2. I’ve had dreams that haunted me for days. Then there are the reoccurring ones or the ones where you know you’re dreaming but can’t wake up fast enough. The mind is very powerful. I find it helps if I’m thinking of good things as I fall asleep.
