So guys, I had an interesting dream earlier, thought I'd get some insight, especially about one character that seemed to be more than it was.
The setting was, how can I say, originally a vacation. The places were fictional, and my dream likes all my dreams played out with a plot with
characters that either my mind generates or facsimiles of people I know when I'm awake.
The dream starts out with the characterization of myself going on vacation to see some distant relatives. A "friend" was travelling with me, though
they served more as my conscience that was in my periphery (they were giving me advice but I never really looked at them).
First place we go to is some large house in a valley in a field somewhere. The people living there are normal, nothing too out of ordinary. Then I
do some exploring on my own inside this house and I make my way to the attic. The attic from the inside was a different kind of place. Imagine
you're on the top floor of some weird cement warehouse, and after jumping around some platforms that serve as the floor, there's a garden in the
corner of the end of the attic. It's the kind of garden that nobody has been taking care of.
Then I turned around and there was, essentially what I would call a demon in my path. He looked and talked like a human, but he was something else.
I got the impression that the garden belonged to him, and that he has been in this attic for a long time. He was acting as a trickster, trying to
bait me into his slick words. I just sorta shrugged him off then left the room.
I then went to another location in the dream, to another house / building. Similar thing happened there, but the trickster was becoming more
aggravated because I wasn't falling for his scheme to corrupt me. I then left that place and went to a third place, which was more complex (it was a
marina, I believe). Same thing there.
The dream then took a u-turn. It was a lot like a Silent Hill game, where the first half seemed mostly normal and manageable, but then things
changed. At the marina, the trickster made it clear that he was going to escalate his corruption. The atmosphere went from normal and greyish to
tense and rusty-red hue.
My "friend" was now dictating a schedule that we had to take. I realized that all the people who I had visited in these three places were now
targets for the trickster (as he could only corrupt me on my own free will to choose it), and I felt like I needed to help save them all. Basically,
these people were still the same characters, but were clearly "off" in what they were doing and saying, since the trickster was sucking up their
energy, and refused to believe that anything was wrong when I tried to explain it to them. The only solution seemed to be to bring these people out
of these buildings.
Except that my "friend" could not allow it, because they had a watch and kept telling me things like "if we don't leave here in 5 minutes we
could not leave the place". So even though I would get close to saving some of them, I had to simply say "I have to go" and then keep going back
through the places that I had came from before, except this time they seemed heavily haunted and possessive.
And it kept degrading until the end, where I was back at the garden in the attic where I met the trickster the first time. The trickster was there,
again, and much more powerful this time because he basically took over everybody and every place I had been to in the dream. I was the only thing not
under his domain, and he wanted it. Well, except for my "friend" who was with me in this cement attic this time. Just as the trickster was about
to make his move to take over me, my "friend" basically mocked him and reassured me that it's all good and snapped their fingers the moment my
alarm clock started going off, back in the real world.
It was a bizarre dream, I don't have those too often. The two most important elements of the dream were the trickster and my travelling "friend".
My "friend" reminded me a lot of myself, if myself was beside me as a separate person, though more of my controlling with the watch / time aspect.
As for the trickster... He / it was not a part of myself that I recognize. I actually felt that it was not even something that my mind generated, as
if it was a foreign entity in my dream that was trying to mess with the mental construct that I created. He was also enigmatic, as if he has had a
long measure of time and experience playing with people's thoughts, praying on the weak in order to eventually take down the strong.
To picture the trickster, he reminded me a lot of Bob from the show "Twin Peaks" (the astral trickster character from the "Black Lodge") in how he
was talking and acting, and in some ways physically also,although his shape was quite dynamic.
I wrote about this dream here because this trickster character seemed quite ominous. You guys ever hear or have experience with such a character?
