What is going on in your waking life?
Disaster dreams often express fears about things in your life that you believe are beyond your control. You may dreamIt is common to dream that you have had or are having a dream. You could be experience a false awakening, in which you dream that you have woken up from an earlier dream, and are performing the activities you normally perform on waking, such as getting dressed and brushing your teeth. Such a dream can be a sign that you have fallen into a rut in waking life.

While I believe the subconscious tries to makes sense through dreaming, I think your state of panic is arising through pure exhaustion.
When my babies were 6months & 18months, I was soooo tired from working 2 jobs & being a sole parent.
I would wake to a baby crying in the wee hours (Mid dream) & not sleep again until I collapsed into bed later (Midnight) the same day.
What was bizarre to me, is that as my head touched the pillow, my mind would take me straight back to where the previous nights dream had ended, & would pick up from there.
Truly strange, & something I had never experienced before.
The dreams themselves were either nonsense ,or I can't remember any standing out symbolically.
I truly think that an exhausted mind does play tricks, doesn't think straight, & has trouble seeing the trees from the forest.
Be kind & patient with yourself , & try to see these nightmares for what they are-
a by-product of a poor overworked mind thats exhausted & needs rest.
Thanks, I wish that was it; but I wasn't tired and exhausted until I started having it every night. Now tired and exhausted are the norm. I just try to stay busy when i have nothing to do and can't sleep or when I sleep for and hour or so and wake up. Trying to go back to sleep just brings it back.
Wishing sweet restful dreams & sleep for you.

Ok, first of all... Plenty of people are having panic attacks. It's new and widespread and all due to our very planet and humanity changing. This cycle is ending and there are major ramifications, some bad but mostly good if you understand our multidimensional universe and humanity's role in this grand play...
To me, this dream certainly seems... well, real. I've also talked to many people who are having such premonitions(real ones). Mostly those of a second 'moon' showing up, or vast amounts ships and mind control technology arriving to lead sheeple aboard(for reasons we won't go into here). Yours seems to fit in there and you can bet Earth changes and catastrophes are imminent. Plane crashes... Eh, I can't explain that one.
Your children were obviously aware of something you weren't... perhaps you shouldn't treat them as some type of commodity and value the wisdom of their relatively pure insight, instead. I know I'll be following my heart in the times ahead.

My mom just had a dream that she was at a store and heard a loud rumbling noise and kept looking around... In her dream she asked a lady, Is that thunder? The women said, Your almost right... She asked what do you mean Is this man made? The women said yes.((( I Told Her HAARP))).. anyways, She happen to be a on a plane and the water started to come and completly filled the town up, so she swam under water to my little brothers and sisters and talked to them like it was normal? There was more but i cant remember but yes something is coming soon, I had a dream of 2 full moons right next to each other one was a little foggy,, some people said it meant that Jesus and the Anti-Christ were coming soon... My sister had a dream with about my little brother who past away not to long he was 8 but he always said he wanted to be like jesus. Well in her dream she was at a crossroad and my little brother and my paw paw (past away) well my little brother told my sister not to be decieved that destruction was coming to the earth to pay attention and Be Prepared.. Well right after that they were gone and water started to fill the street and my little brother told her to keep walking and dont stop,, well these evil souls i guess came with the water and one stoped my sister acting as if he was my little brother and tried to convince my sister otherwise, well she remembered and told the evil no i know your not him, then the thing got angry and presented its self as a demon so in the dream my sister called on jesus to stop it which he did, she woke up crying and screaming and called my mom. My mom is very close to God idk if you believe in him or not but just figured i would share that with you since all this is going on... ohhh watch the Movie Deep Impact. And Pay close attention..

I did not read any posts, I am offering you my advice as I have had similar experiences and work in this area.
You are most definitely experiencing some kind of PST, post traumatic stress from this. I have had 2 near death experiences, one in a wreck and one almost like yours. It was not a dream more of a "vision" with the help of a certain chemical. I can tell you that you can have just as sever PST from a real even, and an event that is "not real" like a dream. The feeling of near death, or convinced you have died, as I did in my wreck, is a feeling few will ever truly experience, and it can be used for good and turn ur life around for the good.
Most Doctors or MD's will not understand what you are going through... trust me lets just say I know this as a fact from experience, and my line of work. You need to see a Psychiatrist, not a therapist or psychologist. There is a huge difference. Do not let them prescribe you any narcotics, they may try to prescribe a type of benzo (ex: Adivan or Valium) for you nerves or to help you sleep. In fact when looking for a doctor let them know you do not want any. A powerful drug will make the problem worse, or could lead to dependance, which is much more horrifying than your dream will be. Again trust me.
What do you do for a living? Are you in a position of control or manage your own business? Do your decisions in business or just life greatly effect your family's well-being? Are you divorced or have marital problems? Answer if you want be these are more rhetorical for you to think about. What you are experiencing is not a minor problem. It will lead to major blockades in your decision making and greatly effect your emotional stability. Your family has most likely already noticed. Please get professional help, that is why there are there. Some of the strongest people I know go to a Psychiatrist. Its a smart decision, not a move of weakness as most would make it out to be.edit on 29-9-2011 by fudmoe because: (no reason given)

You mentioned waking after an hour in a panic. This says to me that your heart was racing, beating out of your chest! That is why you cannot sleep your heart-rate is too high.
You need to start a chart. Starting right now! Take your heart-rate. Count the number of beats in 15 seconds and times that by 4, representing the minute. If I count 12 beats my heart-rate would be 48.
Everyone has a different baseline depending on their lifestyle, metabolism, and overall conditioning. Find out where you are with your heart. Do your heart-rate every hour through the day, then as you begin to see the pattern you will see where you sit at rest versus when you are doing things. Then take the data into your Doctor and show them. They will likely realize that a Beta-Blocker will slow that heart down and cause the conscious connection to slow down. Your mind will drift peacefully to La-la Land, believe me!
I would bet your resting rate is near 100+ from the sounds of it. Those moments which are triggered by your subconscious mind during the dream can be kept to a more reasonable level, so medication would be taken prior to laying down. If you can get your heart-rate, at rest, down to at least below 60 beats per minute, then your mind will ease down and shut down for rest! I would say 48 is comfortable for me.
I no longer have to use BB but they did work and they saved my life! I was firing my heart during sleep in a manner only a marathon runner should do during a heat!
What triggers these things is often the right hemisphere of the brain beginning to mingle with the left hemisphere. It is almost like you are actively communicating with yourself and your intuitive nature and analytical mind are playing a field of view that can make the emotional connections go overboard!
Good luck, get a watch, chart your numbers and report to your Doctor, you my friend need rest!
Sleep Tight! This will get better if you do this, trust me!
Oh yeah, if you wake up in a panic, jot the time and the rate!

Hello. It is stress. I would stay off the internet and take a day off where you sleep, read a good fun book, watch dvds, and eat your favorite foods. Most of ATS is Tabliod Internet for entertainment fun. If it starts to ruin the quality of your life, quit comming back for a fear and anxiety high. I am old enough to tell you that cell phones, TV, and facebook/ ATS can just add stress to an already busy life.
Go simple and enjoy yourself! It's your life, you make these choices. The world is not ending we just have the same old problems we have always had pre internet exposure of news. Take up a new hobbie. Best of Luck!
P.S.) Buy a 50 million year old fossil of a sand dollar and hold this when you have a panic attack. This will put things into perspective. Also lay off the caffine and sugar. Walk four miles twice a week. You'll start to feel more in control of your life.edit on 29-9-2011 by frugal because: (no reason given)

I have had this dream many times over the last 10 or so years. A little over a month ago, I started having this dream every couple (2 or 3) of nights, sometimes I would wake up, go back to sleep thinking it's over and have it again. It is so real. I couldn't go back to sleep.
Then about 2 weeks ago I started having it every night. I wasn't getting any sleep; because when I tried to go back to sleep it would start all over again. This past Sunday night I went to bed around 1 am, I woke up at 2 am in a state of panic. "I NEVER PANIC" "NEVER". I SAID , "THIS IS FREAKEN NUTS". I went to my bath and got a sleeping pill. I don't know how old it was, but I was taking it, I needed sleep. I slept for about 2 hrs and woke up in a panic state again. Monday, I went to the doctors. DOC I said, "I got to sleep. I explained everything to him and he said, STRESS. Gave me 6 pills. You go home take one, then take one before you go to bed for a week to get my sleep cycle back and I guarantee you will sleep. That afternoon I took a pill. I fell asleep on the couch for 1 fraken hour. I dreamt the same dream, so real I knew it was telling me something.
I woke up crying.
"People" this dream is scaring the hell out of me. I have talked to everyone I know about this dream. I can not figure it out. I know dreams are suppose to be your unconsious/subconsious trying to tell you something; but god help me, I'm Stumped. I am not a long term ATS member. I just found out about this site a couple days ago. Monday I think. I couldn't sleep and was scrolling the internet and found this site. I said, Why Not. I posted to the number of sites I had to to post this thread. Some pretty bizare stuff, some cool, some just stupid. Please no stupid. I read a couple of the world is coming to an end things and tomorrow is no exception on here and I read several othe dream threads hoping to find something simalar but; This dream feels as real as if I were living in that moment. Is scary as hell and feels like it is telling me I am going to die. SOON!!!!!!!!!!!
I dont have any significant stress or problems, I am very easy going but not laid back. I work and play and enjoy life in moderation and I love my kids everlastingly. I'm so tired, I close my eyes and then an hour later I wake up in total fear. I could handle it if it was just about me in the dream; but it's not. I can't find my kids and it's happening to the whole world around me. I think part of the reason that the fear is so great is: the last time I had a reoccuring dream was in 1986. For a week I dreamt of a plane flying upside down and crashing into water. I woke up that morning to hear the Space Shuddle had crashed.
Here is my dream: Sorry this was so long.
"I'm outside, but not familar with my area, everything has changed, Water was rising, the Earth was shaking, the Stars in the sky were sliding all over the place, There were some kind of explosons in the sky. The sky was black but it was continually lit up with these like fireworks high in the sky explosions. Everything is black, like at night. Something like planes are crashing into the water. I can't find my children and (I always know were my kids are), people are screaming, some are in the water, some are running away from it, some people are dead. I say, Oh my god, the world is coming to an end. I keep screaming my kids names, oh god whats happening? The explosions just keep coming, the sky is a flurry of movement, almost like it is sliding. Everything is moving. Black smoke is off in the distance like a hundred nukes went off and it's rolling my way. I run into this building, people are screaming "Its Time, It's Time" I look out the wall that's not there and a plane crashes right in front of me. I am awake in the dream as if it is really happening right then. I'm not exactly scared, more in shock. It is so real I wake up and all I can think of is "OH #, I was almost dead". When I tried going back to sleep I would go back to the part of running into the building and people sreaming" It's Time, It's Time" Knowing what's going to happen I wake right back up again.
Any one having this same dream (this is ATS afterall), anyone got any ideas? What am I missing that I can't figure out what this dream is trying to tell me. This afternoon I fell asleep on the couch again and the dream jumped to the building and people screaming "It's Time". I woke up and said "OK Already, get it the hell over with, so tired of this dream am I.
I will wake up at ?am, feeling fully refreshed and having had the best most comfortable and relaxing nights sleep in years
