Paralyzing Dream (Death Dream)
I dreamt that I was in a forest, walking, and I could sense danger, but I didn't know where it was coming from. I continue walking through the dense forestation, and I arrive at a glade. At the far end of it, only about 15m away from where I'm standing, there's a pond, and aboriginals are sitting around it. I approach the water's edge, and I notice there's a pale one, and it's feet aren't touching the ground. It's floating a few feet about the rest of the group, its head face down. I get closer, and realise that it's a corpse, that of a deformed boy. It's so horrible. It's eyes look blank, but as it lifts up its face to look at me, they are red. At this point I'm right next to it. So I slowly make my way around the pond, trying to get away, and it follows me, slowly, just floating with its head staring at the ground. The faster I move around the pond, the faster it seems to get closer to me. I go round and round it, terrified, it's always right behind me, I turn around to look at it, and as I turn back to face forward, I see a huge close-up of a raging wolf's head, and it lets out a horrid cry/roar, so loud, right in my ear. The last thing I hear before waking up is a piercing scream.
I wake up, and I'm screaming silently in my bed, just breath coming out of my mouth, but really strained, just like a scream. My heart is pumping so fast. I try to breathe normally and turn around in my bed, but I can't. I try to lift my are, move my leg, nothing is working. My heart is beating but not rhythmically. It's like it beats 5 times really fast, then stops, and then starts up again. All I can do is move my eyes to look around, but I can't make any noise, my mouth is still open from the silent scream. I'm freaking out so much. It lasts around 2 minutes. What the hell was it? An opossum reaction? Freeze when confronted face to face with danger? It brings the meaning "frozen with terror" to a whole new literal level. I was afraid to fall asleep after that, in case I were to become paralyzed again.
Has anyone experienced this?
Does anyone know what this means!!?
