I'll first start by saying that as my username indicates, I generally have a pretty skeptical, scientific, and logical standpoint for paranormal or
"unexplainable" phenomena. I'm posting this irrational fear of mine in the paranormal section because it simply isn't normal. I'm open to supernatural
explanations and scientific ones -- I simply figured I'd share this experience with you all.
When I was a small child, I was plagued with a consistent dream of being in a park in Paris. It was night time in this scene, and I saw two
individuals, a man and a woman, sitting on a bench in the park I was in. I approached them in the dream and they both stood up, said something to one
another in french, and proceeded to stab me to death, violently lunging at me with their blades in and around my abdomen and chest.
As a child, this dream was very common, I had it multiple times a month. By the time I reached around age 10, I no longer dreamt of the two french
people murdering me in a park. What was left however was a bizarre fear of anything related to Paris, France. When I see a movie that takes place in
Paris, for whatever reason, I start sweating and feeling nauseous. Hearing the french language makes me uncomfortable, and I would never ever
travel anywhere near France.
For years now as I lay down to sleep, I've found myself clutching onto a pillow around my abdomen area for comfort because I find myself fearing that
someday the dream will come back and I'l feel what it's like to be stabbed there. It sounds completely irrational, and I am fully aware of this. I'm
interested in hearing some of your explanations.
All I can think of is that maybe there's a chance I saw a movie involving the scenario in my dream, and it stuck in my subconscious. I've heard of
people being traumatized by nightmares -- maybe that's what occurring. Either way, no croissants for me.
