I understand what you've experienced as I have had similar recurring dreams. I'm in some seedy location with strange "friends" and it somehow occurs
to me that I might have killed someone, though I don't remember the act whatsoever.
I am somehow convinced of my deed and become overwhelmed by guilt and horror. For me, it's not just the fear of being apprehended, it's mostly the
irrevocable act of taking a life that fills me with dread.
This has happened a few times, all within the same dark dream setting. It makes me wonder if we are multi-located in different dimensions, higher and
lower degrees, where we are making a range of different decisions. In most dreams I am rather passive and harmless, trying to navigate through
whatever scenario as peacefully as possible.
So one theory is that we exist along different dimensions, whether externally or internally, having higher and lower grades of self. This theory is
only compelling to those who entertain the possibility of accessing other realms outside the body.
Another more materialistic theory is that our brains run experiments on things we should probably know in real life.
"This is how it would feel to take someone's life......so DON'T!" So we learn our virtual lesson and awake enormously relieved, though disturbed for
long enough to really let it sink in to our waking consciousness. So it could just be a sublimation mechanism to help us cast off accumulations of
stress, anger, frustration, etc.
I don't subscribe to the past life theory for two reasons. For me these dreams are usually in a contemporary setting, not the recent or distant past
as you would expect chronologically. Also, if re-incarnation and karma go together, then having killed someone in my past life would probably result
in rebirth into a lower world or as a lower life form. As mentioned, these nightmares take place in a dark and seedy world, poor in quality and tone.
Why then would I be re-born into a better world for committing a murder?
