Dreams can provide insight into our deepest thoughts. Using dream interpretation to explore dream symbols and uncover a dream's meaning can lead to a better understanding of ourselves.
I had a dream many years ago. I was about 21. A good friend and I had been discussing astral projection. I was fascinated by the concept so I did some reading at the library. One important point that clicked was that you need to be in control of your conscious just as you're slipping into unconsciousness. I tried several times to retain control as my body slipped away, but with no success. But one night I had the scariest, darkest, utterly loneliest nightmare I had ever had. I don't know if it was actually a successful projection. I dreamed that I was alone, in a place I can only call nowhere. I was suspended in darkness, complete blackness like I had never imagined before. I felt so alone, abandoned, helpless, and hopeless. I had never experienced, nor have I since, such complete loneliness. I also had a distinct feeling of being surrounded by evil. Intangible, and invisible, it crowded me, enveloping me completely. I felt like I had control of myself, but not the dream, as I tried desperately to wake myself from within. But I could not. I remained paralyzed, in suspense for I don't know how long until I awoke to my older brother shaking me in his own terror, with eyes wide open, calling my name. He is not one for drama so when he told me that he heard sounds coming from me that sent chills up his spine- moaning in a voice that sounded not of my own, and screams that should have woken myself- when he said these things, I took it seriously. I do not know what happened, where I was, or how I got there, but I've never dabbled in Astral Projection again. If anyone has any clues or experience, please let me know what the hell that was all about.
