FEAR OF FEAR
I discovered a new meditation called void meditation which is a Qigong exercise involving a breathing technique. I started about 1am and the meditation made me feel really good and full of energy but I rolled over and fell asleep. I was awake again by 2am, within the hour I was asleep I had a very disturbing false awakening.
I appeared in my bedroom laying down as if still doing the meditation but with eyes open. The room was dark but I could make out objects in the room, I began to wonder if anyone or anything else was in the room with me. As I continued looking around the room I could see dark patches like an after-shadow of where I just looked. I began thinking "Uh oh... I don't like where this is going..." My attention immediately focused on the darkest spot in the room and I began to think there was something evil there. The fear grew stronger and I began to sense this dark presence like death energy hiding in the dark. It started to drain my energy and make me feel even more fearful. I was fully lucid, like this was really happening in real life, I had no idea how to counter this attack on me. Afterall it was my own fear being manifested, so I called upon the great white light, the higher divine and immediately the dream ended and I awoke.
