Hi Eyeballkid. I understand that your dream may have affected you deeply, to the point it still worries you today, some four years later. There are
dreams and dreams and I trust you to know when one of your dreams feels 'different' compared to your normal dreams.
Have you considered (you probably have) that your dream may have been caused by your curiosity about the ritual your female friend engaged in, down by
the river? To my understanding, you drove her to that location at her request, but remained apart from her activities there and simply drove her home
-- at which point, out of concern for you, your friend performed a protection ritual on your behalf, including an amulet which she instructed you to
keep on your person (which you elected to leave in your truck).
While you were waiting for her at the river, you obviously gave some thought to what your friend might be doing. Your thoughts were doubtlessly
influenced by her claims that her ex-husband was a 'warlock' on a mission to gain his child.
Ok. This is all pretty heady stuff for you, seeing as you had no prior involvement in or knowledge of, the occult. And the drama and fear-content was
heightened by your friend's activities and claims. You probably attempted to repress a lot of the fear and anxiety; tried to brush it off and tell
yourself you were only trying to help a friend. Clearly, you WERE anxious and feeling out of your depth, as illustrated by the fact you chose to
'distance' yourself from the situation AND from the fearfulness it caused you .... by leaving the protective amulet in your truck. In other words,
you said to yourself: 'Hey -- I dont' want any part of this, don't want to be dragged into this stuff, don't want this thing (protective amulet)
SO ... you didn't REALLY buy everything your friend told you. ( If you HAD, you would have clung to that 'protective amulet' as if your life
depended on it). All of which indicates you have a decent grip on sanity and had it all -- even then -- in good perspective.
But what happened was (it seems) it played on your mind. Played on some atavistic fear. Of course it would. And you'd tried to hold down the fear
and keep it all in perspective and you went home and left the thing in your truck. You probably thought about it and tried to make sense of it all,
as you were going to sleep. And then when you were asleep, out it popped: all that fear you'd held down.
I see your dream as *not* a threat to you, not something that the ex-husband 'warlock' intended/intends to inflict on you. Instead, to me, your
dream seems the result of your natural curiosity about what your friend was up to, down by the river. To me, your dream sounds like something your
own mind conjured up about what your friend was inflicting on her ex-husband. She may not have 'cursed' him in any such way of course. But the
sleeping mind is very inventive and yours probably combined random bits of stuff gleaned from old movies, tv shows and books (a little bit of
Franenstien etc.) and came up with the Tortured Man images.
I think your fears turned it around and caused you to suspect that *you* would be the Tortured Man. Hope you can see it from that perspective and
After all, what did you actually DO? Nothing, apart from drive a worried friend to a spot of her choosing. You didn't harm the ex-husband. You
aren't a threat to him, not then, not now. Your friend (the ex-husband's former wife) has remarried. If the 'warlock ex-husband' wanted to gain
revenge on anyone, it would be upon his ex-wife (your friend) and her new husband and new friends ... not you. You were nothing more than a very
minor player in all this. You didn't do anything an ex-husband OR a 'warlock' would get himself in a tantrum about. Do you see?
I don't believe you need to worry. The 'warlock' would probably smile in confusion if he knew you were concerned about him. You're Ok. You'll
be ok. Stop worrying:-)
