Do you think it has any significance or meaning? I'd say its strange when its an ongoing thing!

I think there's a very real possibility that we can have both types of nightmares...those reflecting our personal demons that come from inside of us and others reflecting someone or something else coming to us, external forces that may or may not be truly malevolent in and of themselves but we that we might simply be perceiving that way.

I have nightmares several times a week. Have since I was a teenager. Mine are from my own personal demons also. Things I've made peace with in my waking hours. The worst part is, the nightmares rarely deviate. They are all nearly identical and I do the same stupid fearful moves each time. Sometimes I think that if I could change my reaction, they may stop. As it is, they rule me. I avoid sleep, sometimes for days because of fear. Married 14 years this June, never slept all night in the same bed as my husband. I tend to scream out and strike out when it's at its worst parts.

My last nightmare was a psychic intrusion by a friend I can no longer maintain relations with for several personal reasons.
I guess it could be classified under the "old hag" syndrome. She showed up in my home uninvited with a bunch of cronies and wouldn't leave and I couldn't fight them off. I felt so weak and helpless and they just kept laughing and laughing at my inability to get rid of them. I woke up fighting for air and extremely shaken. The whole experience was extremely distressing. I don't get phased like that in real life.
She called three days later even though we haven't spoken for well over a year.

There are nightmares that are nothing more than psycological memory consolidation, and then there are prophetic dreams and demonic attacks which defy science as we understand it. I can attest to all three categories.
