My whole life I was able to wake up and remeber everything about my dreams. But lately my dreams have been harder and harder to remeber to the point of which I fall asleep and when I wake up it is as if I never even slept. I've been sleeping less and less. I just can't fall asleep no matter what I do. And when I do sleep I've been told I scream most of the night yet I remeber nothing. This all started after I had broken up with a close friend of mine who had become my boyfriend. My boyfriend and I had been sharing dreams before we broke up. I mean like they where the exact same dream from our own perpsectives. But right before we broke up I had a wierd dream.

Some of my dreams have always been of me meeting certain people in my dreams. I do not know these people in real life and I have dream't of them since I was young and they have grown older and changed over time as I have. But I was always fighting with them. It went from simply fist fights when I was young to using actually weapons. I came to fear them. When me and my boy friend started dating the dreams stopped completely and they where of just me and him.

Then one night I had a dream. I was in this large forest where the trees coward above me. It was extremly dark and I could barely see my hand in front of me. As I walked I finally came into a clearing. IN the middle of the clearing stood a large group of people. As i watched them they turned and looked at me. I reconized some of them as the people I used to fight with in my dreams. I began to back away when I felt hands on my back tht pushed me into the clearing. The clearing was then surrounded by people so no one could leave. I couldn't actually see anyone at the edge of the clearing but I just knew they where there. At this point I was getting scared so when some of the people came away from the group in the center of the clearing I looked around for anything I could use to defend myself. But I couldnt find anything. When I looked up again there was a women in front of me. I had always been scared of her and stayed away from her when I saw her in my dreams. So when she reached out to touch me I screamed and then everything in my dream went black.

The next part of the dream I remeber is looking up at the black sky. I am on my back and I feel like there are cuts all across my body and I can feel and smell my blood as it comes out of me. The grass is sticky and warm with it and I start feeling colder and colder as I look at the sky. There are no stars or moon or anything in the sky but I suddenly see a face looking down at me. I didn't see any features but they shook thier head at me and then I felt myself die. When I woke up I hurt all over and I went into the restroom to make sure I was alive and not bleeding. I then collapsed on the floor until later in the mourning when I woke again on the floor.

After this I could barely remeber my dreams. And then me and my boy firend broke up. I became extrmely sick and stopped sleeping. And what I remeber of my dreams scares me. I will probally post my dreams when I remeber parts of them.

I recently was talking to my ex and he told me how he no longer remebered his dreams and that it was as if he didn't sleep even when he did. He asked if I was the same and I told him I'd talk about it later. But the thing is he things that this is cause by demons or something that wants to hurt us and I'm not sure how to take it. I have woken up with a few cuts here and there but I'm pretty sure it's just me hitting something. But I'm not exactly sure anymore...

Does anyone have any ideas of what any of this could be or mean? I'm just trying my best to get some answers.

Your dream and situation sounds really deep. However I don't think it’s demonic. I think the not remembering of your dreams is in connection with the connection you had with your boyfriend. What did having him in your life mean to you? This may have some clues as to why you’re not remembering your dreams. There’s a block there subconsciously. Are you mad at yourself about the break up? The first thing that comes to mind about fighting with people in your dreams that you don't recognize, reminds me of the term Past Life experience. I don't know much about Past Life experience or regression and at this time I don't grasp the whole concept but it is what I think of. Those people you're fighting with could be the people from your past life (???). Except I believe the people in your dream are all parts of you. I even believe the tree could be a symbol of you. What are you fearful of? “I was in this large forest where the trees coward above me.” This phrase reminds me of the saying: You can’t see the forest for the trees. Meaning ones focus is on the unimportant rather than on the important things; unable to see the big picture. Is there something minor you’re focused on and not looking at the overall picture? “It was extremely dark and I could barely see my hand in front of me”. You’re having an inability to see something. It happens to be your hand so what is it that you can’t seem to grasp that’s right in front of you?

The other thing that comes to mind is the part about a dark entity looking down on you. It could represent your subconscious or a fear that needs to be confronted. It’s like a black cloud hovering over you so to speak. Are you deeply depressed about something? This dark entity was shaking its head as if to say shame on you for making a mistake. This leads me to ask, "Is there something going on within you that causes you look down on yourself?" Do you rarely give yourself credit about anything? Or do you put yourself down about lots of things? For some reason I think that image could be another part of you. If the people are also another part of you (and not past life) then it causes me to ask, "What are you fighting with yourself about all these years?" The reason I also believe the people are you is because they grew up with you over the years in your dreams (as you grew from child to an adult). It sounds like an internal struggle. Are you aggressively hard on yourself? Having your boyfriend around seemingly gave you temporary peace but when you broke up with him the ‘who' you are, was still there. It always was. You have your own inner strength and perhaps your dreams are telling you, you need to develop them. You can ask/pray to have your dreams show you how to do that and to remember the dreams. I hope this helps!

In the dreams (over time), what have the fights with the people been about? Do you remember several topics? This is another way to narrow it down to something specific. Also what's meant by a clearing? I thought of this as if you're coming out of darkness into something clearer. ???

The general theme of the dream is being under attack. not wishing to fight, but being forced to. The attack sequences are getting stronger. The emotion in the dreams is fear. You had these dreams as a child, then they went away when you had your boyfriend (with whom you also seem to have had a psychic bond). Then you and your bf split up and the dreams came back, and there you were, having to fend for yourself all alone again. This could relate to your being subjected to social criticism, censure or challenges that are hard for you to face alone. Does your job or your nature subject you to emotional or intellectual attack?

Recurring dreams are very important. They will continue until you consciously "get the message", presenting the same message in different ways. I have a feeling that something buried in your subconscious is re-emerging. You are still afraid to face it, but you are getting close.
I also think your age might be important in this dream. Do you mind sharing it?
Even though the dreams are frightening, they are a positive sign that you are working your way through something important.

Thanks for sending me your age. I asked because when women are going throug tremendous hormonal changes (menarche or menopause - also pregnancy) it has a serious effect on dreams. Your body is trying to find its hormonal balance (I'm sure you've noticed). This causes not only inexplicable mood swings, but also affects your dreams. When you go through a "dry spell" of dreaming, don't worry. You are still dreaming, but the dreams are not emerging into your consciousness and waking you up because your brain is still trying to work something out. You WILL begin to remember your dreams again.
Many other factors affect dreams, of course - daily events, worries, fears, traumas, desires etc. The psychic factor will bring you some really interesting ones, too. Just keep in mind that even the scary ones have a positive purpose - to help you resolve your fears. Hope this is helpful. Nan
