The worst nightmare I have ever had came after a powerful light energy healing session. I worked with a highly educated energy healer who performed
four healings on me over the course of four weeks. After the second healing, I dreamt that a girl was spying on me, and I became so enraged that I
strangled this girl, until she died in my hands. I remember feeling her spirit leave her body, at which time I stepped back and took in the gruesome,
bloody scene that had been created by my own hands. I woke up shaken and emotional. I spoke to my healer about the dream, who then said that
nightmares are a method of release for the energetic systems of the body. Also that the dream state is a safe place to confront issues seemingly too
big or emotional to handle consciously.
I continued with the healings, and experienced another nightmare after my fourth healing. Once again, the strange woman that I strangled in the first
nightmare, reappeared and was still spying on me. She was smiling, and very happy. But I was not. Instead of rage and the anger that I felt in the
first dream, I became emotional, and began to sob, asking this girl why she was spying on me. I cried inside this dream until I had no tears left to
cry. The girl never answered me, but continued to look at me and smile.
This being four years ago, I can look back and see the clear symbology in these nightmares. The strange woman in my dreams seemed to represent my
feminine/emotional/intuitive side. From an overextended stay in an abusive relationship, I had shut down my heart and all feelings of worth within
myself. I believe the first nightmare was a release of the anger and rage I felt at my former partner for all the lies and manipulation I was subject
to, and a symbolic version of what I was doing to myself, literally killing my emotional self by trying to remain numb, and not trusting my own heart
and mind about the lies that I was fed on a daily basis. The second nightmare made clear to me that I was past the anger, and allowed the sadness
regarding this bad relationship to be released, along with a re-acceptance of my emotional self as a valid part of my being.
I say look at your nightmares. Embrace them, study them. If they get to be too much, from your heart, ask your spirit to tone them down before you
go to sleep. If you need a peaceful night's sleep, from your heart, command a peaceful sleep from your spirit. It's worth a try.
