I am writing this as of waking up barely 5minutes ago so please bare with me; I'm pretty adept at remaining somewhat coherent, though sleepy, so...
It's this "old hag" type being. My dream-self is scared of it, considers it an "evil witch" type figure. I have never
dreamt of it before
until now, twice, and I don't know what it means.
In dream #1
- All I remember is that I was boarding up windows, I couldn't let something into the house... and then there was a knock at a
door, at the end of a hallway, a door that was never there before. And I opened it and this Old Hag comes flying at me, chanting strange words,
chasing me down the hallway before I woke up. I don't remember those words now but I remembered to search them the other day when it happened, but no
results showed up, but thanks to my internet history, the words were something akin to:
In dream #2
- Which I just woke up from. I was with my son, who was a bit older than he is now since he could actually talk properly. Or maybe
he could just talk properly in my dream, either way. We were talking about storms, and going out to explore a cave after the storm had passed. We
needed to go looking for a hip-bone of some creature. And then he was asking me about one of the Gods in the story I'm writing, Esra'elle, and why
he doesn't perform storms and things to impress the people when witches could. And then there was a knock at the door, and I felt really scared, and
forbid him from opening the door. Minutes passed and suddenly a child's voice came from outside crying that he only wanted to play with my son. So,
stupidly, I was all "okay." and opened the door and the same "old hag" from my previous dream was outside waiting for us. I'm just staring at it
in shock and then I woke up.
I tried searching for what an "old hag" in dreams means, but I keep getting references to sleep paralysis. Which I am not experiencing.
In my dreams, the being kind of looks like what a Hagraven looks like in Skyrim - link to image
Anyway, just thought I'd share.. and see if anyone has any suggestions for what an old hag in a dream, twice in one week, could mean.
