Lucid Intent? Yes Lucid Technique: RT
This dream has been viewed 4254 times.It is night time and I find myself on the street where my favourite childhood friend lived. My friend is present and watches me whilst I am in the process of trying to park my car on his driveway.
The engine is switched off and I appear to be pushing the vehicle awkwardly and seemingly pointlessly backwards and forwards as if trying to get my vehicle parked to the absolute millimetre.
Suddenly the dream takes on terrifying and nightmarish overtones and I realise that I am in the horror movie called ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ (this part of the dream was absolutely petrifying).
The Freddy character is running down the street and laughing in a horrible way, my little friend is utterly scared stiff and I’m frightened too but I suddenly realise that although my friend is only a small boy of 8 or 9 years old I am a man with my current age.
I launch myself at the Freddy character and we wrestle in a titanic, horrifically aggressive and violent struggle, I surprisingly manage to hold my own up against the ghoulish figure.
As I battle with the monster I hear my friend call out to me “Let him cut your right kidney out, he wants to use it as a vase for his daisies” (??).
The scene melts into a black void where I see the terrifying figure of a man standing staring at me with a sneering evil grin he appears to have had a gruesome face transplant and sports a deep thick mask like scar where the new face was grafted on.
The scar as if delineating the join of a mask reminds me of the androids from the 1970’s sci-fi movie with Yul Brynner called ‘Westworld’.
(I awake immediately afterwards in a cold sweat and find it difficult to fall back asleep again for a few moments such is the impact and fear the dream instilled).
Additional Comments:Thoughts: This was a really awful dream that I simply didn’t want to remember and really just wanted to block it out of my memory, on waking up immediately after it I had the completely foolish and irrational fear of what would happen if I met that gruesome character in another dream the following night....a sort of perpetuation of the films theme or what I can remember of seeing it years ago at my cousins house. Of course my resistance to this dreams message is probably quite telling and therefore even though I thought it was just a silly nightmare it probably has something important to say as I believe that all dreams come in service to help the dreamer particular the scarier ones. My immediate thoughts are that this is basically a dream about growing up and to stop faffing around with trying to park that childlike side of me which is immature but to literally cut it out to grow up. I’m not sure why I had that idea but the part of me that my friend was telling me to let the Freddy character cut out from me was the “Kid” (....ney). Those thoughts are just ideas I’ve tried to do some associations with....I didn’t have another nightmare like this the following night so it looks like it was just a symbolic one!
