It is late at night even approaching early morning and dark outside I have been driving back to my
dream home and parked inside a garage which is attached to the house. I get out of the car and am
aware that I have lots of large bunches of keys which I will need to use to lock up the property and
make it safe for the night.
As I stroll around securing the house and garage I start to feel the atmosphere change and become
more sinister and creepy, I sense the presence of a malevolent female almost witch like with long claws
for hands. I imagine this woman has a hag like appearance but I cannot actually see her but I do hear
the occasionally stifled chilling cackle and sniggering coming from behind me.
The atmosphere is most unpleasant and unnerving I actually wonder how she got into the house, did
she follow me in whilst the garage door was open and I was parking the car? Or is she more a spirit
who can pass through walls like a ghost? However this person got in here she is most unwelcome and
gives me the fear and the shivers.
After I have finished locking up I head out to the rear of the garden of this unfamiliar dream home, it is
twilight and is getting lighter. My garden is very expansive and looks very much like a public park it
even has black cast iron railings surrounding its perimeter. I am suddenly taken aback to see some
women come strolling into my garden through the open gate with their pet dogs, the women and their
pets look very posh and snooty.
Much to my disgust and annoyance it looks like the women are taking their pets for an early morning
stroll around my garden so that they can let their dogs go to the toilet there. This sight leaves me with
a feeling of disbelief and anger but the women carry on regardless entering through the open gate. I
realize and decide that I will have to buy a padlock and secure the gate leading into the garden to stop
trespassers coming in and exploiting it by letting their dog’s soil there.
Just then I see another most unsettling woman in the garden not far from me, she looks at me with a
wild eyed crazed face full of madness she looks most disturbed and unbalanced. She proceeds to climb
up a wooden ladder into a tree where there is a large wooden children’s tree house, she steps out
through the front door of the tree house and without any warning she lets herself fall head first into the
hard concrete ground.
The woman gets up and says gleefully “Look at me!” her face is badly cut and bruised and covered in
blood. Without further ado she climbs back up into the tree house and let’s herself plummet again face
first into the ground without even putting her arms out to protect her just as if she were falling from a
diving board into an empty swimming pool with no water.
The women gets up and stares manically at me again with her mangled face and broken toothed
grimacing smile, its quite clear that what she is doing is some kind of self harm which is linked to some
kind of insanity or madness, she speaks forth a manic garbled almost incoherent monologue about
scars and how she can happily make them stay for as long as she wants and how she can create new
ones by continuing to harm herself.
The scene is chilling and macabre in the extreme I briefly consider helping the woman but I walk away
as she continues to climb back up the tree and destroy her face by smashing it repeatedly into the
ground in what seems like some kind of self pitying spite turned against her self. The scene is so
upsetting and disturbing that I decide that it is best that I distance myself from this person altogether
regardless of the harm that she is causing herself, she seems a lost cause and quite mad.
As I walk away from the stiflingly morbid scene I reflect that I must remember to get a padlock for the
After my recent visit to see family this dream is probably linked to family stresses and worries at the
moment and also my trying to help sort out other family member’s problems. The woman who was
hurting her face in particular seems very relevant and familiar, its probably a representation of
somebody who I try to help but who never seems to listen and I never get anywhere with (although this
could be a more general thing too). I guess my dream was trying to say that I shouldn’t continue to
waste my energy and time on people who are intent on repeatedly making the same mistakes over and
over again regardless of help and advice (and who also seem to get some kind of bizarre pleasure out
of it too). There is probably also something in there about keeping some privacy and personal space for
myself too and stopping some people who I’m willing to help but who keep coming in and simply taking
