What Causes Nightmares? The Meaning of Bad Dreams

3471456120_7fab1eb557_mNightmares are not caused by external factors; they are not a consequence of over-eating like many people believe. If you have nightmares after over-eating this means that you have a negligent attitude in life. Nightmares are caused by your wrong attitude or behavior.

A nightmare is an alarm that tries to prevent future problems, deceptions, mental illnesses or catastrophes. Nightmares that scare you represent dangerous situations in your life that need your urgent attention. However, when you have bad dreams that don’t frighten you, this means that you are apathetic towards what is harmful in your life.

I’m going to give you an example, using the bad dream of my neighbor. She gave me the right to publish it publicly in order to provide a lesson.

My neighbor dreamt that she was with a friend driving her car and going down the street. The street was on an incline and was dangerously filled with slippery mud because it was raining. Her car suddenly became a roller skate. Her friend was behind her, giving her instructions about where they should go. They entered into a shopping center with the roller skate. The shopping center had a big door in its entrance. As soon as they entered the door closed behind them and they were locked inside.

From a therapeutic standpoint, we need to know more about the dreamer in order to perfectly translate her dream because all dreams talk about the dreamers’ life. What we know is that she is a young woman; very thin, attractive and superficial. She is too preoccupied about her appearance; spending all her money on new clothes.

I told my neighbor that the way she drives her car in a dream represents the way she drives her life. Her car became a roller skate, which is a very dangerous form of transportation. Hence, the way she drives her life is as dangerous as travelling by roller skates and being out of control. She started laughing, not understanding how serious the dream warning was.

In order to understand the meaning that her friend had in the dream we have to know how the dreamer characterized him or her. You see, other people in our dreams represent parts of our own personality who behave like the different people who appear in our dreams. Therefore we need to know the importance each dreamer places upon the people they know who become part of their dreams.

My neighbor told me that she doesn’t trust her friend because she is somehow crazy. This means that her friend represents an absurd part of her own personality. The rain in dreams represents a solution. Examining everything together now that we analyzed the dream symbols, the meaning of this dream was:

Be careful because the way you are living is very dangerous (car that becomes a roller skate). You are being influenced by an absurd part of your personality (somehow crazy friend). Therefore, at a certain point in your life you’ll be forced to find a solution (rain). However, you’ll face problems that you were not expecting (mud and a street on a dangerous incline). In the end you’ll get trapped in a horrible situation without finding a way out (shopping center where my neighbor and her friend got locked in).

My neighbour and client now understood that she has to change her attitude and take life seriously which she did not understand before my translations. Her dream is very common; many people have bad dreams without feeling scared. Their apathy before frightening situations in dreams reflects the indifference they feel towards dangerous situations of their lives.

Be prudent when you have bad dreams or nightmares! Keep a dream journal and follow dream therapy. You’ll avoid needless suffering and develop your intelligence. This way, you’ll easily detect all hidden traps.

    About 4 yrs ago i wittness a murder… It was a drug deal gone bad, just being there and seeing and hearing everything traumatized the hell out of me!!! I have alot of dreams about that night.. I really wish i never experance nothing like this!!

  • admin says:

    Dear Debbie,

    You need psychotherapy. The fact that you were victim of terror for being near terror was not a coincidence, and this is why you have many dreams about what had happened when you saw the tragic scene of a murder.

    You can send your dreams for professional dream translation at

    http://scientificdreaminterpretation.com/Dream_Translation.html

    I will help you get rid of these nightmares forever, transform your personality, forgive craziness, forgive terror, and help the world find peace. The real doctor is not me; I’m merely a helper. Your doctor is the wise unconscious mind that produces your dreams.

    You should send me your nightmares, your last dreams, and you life story so that I may immediately help you stop suffering because of what happened in the past.

    Alternatively, you should purchase my ebooks and learn the dream language yourself, so that you may be able to translate your own dreams without depending on a dream translator. Dream therapy is pure salvation. This method really helps you solve your problems.

    If you cannot afford sending me your dreams for professional translation or purchasing my ebooks so that you may be able to solve your problems right now, you should study my free lessons so that you may be helped with time. Here is my lensography:

  • admin says:

    Dear Smith,

    You need psychotherapy. Constant nightmares and bad dreams show you that you are making serious mistakes for being influenced by the wild side of your conscience and for being a slave of your one-sided conscience and your psychological type.

    You can submit your dreams for a professional dream translation and receive the treatment you need. I can translate your dreams for you and provide you with free psychotherapy after translating your dreams, but my translations are not free because they are not based on my suppositions. I exactly translate the meaning of the dream language based on the discoveries of Carl Jung, and on my discoveries after continuing his research and after curing numerous people from various mental illnesses through dream therapy since 1990.

    I spend time looking for meaning of the dream symbols and relating this information to your life biography. This is a practice that needs concentration. I also have the moral obligation to give you the right guidance, so I have to be very careful and examine your case with all my attention.

    Last night I had a dream that I had someones baby. I knew it was a baby, but it was just a seed and I had to keep it in some type of instrument kind of shaped like a bong. If the seed/baby fell out…it would die. The seed kept falling out…and I didn’t know if it was still alive. While this was happening, a new neighbor to my neighborhood dies because he was murdered by people who wanted the baby. I go home to tell my brother what had happened…and I saw him crying, holding my dogs head. My dog died and we had no idea how. While all this happened…my parents were no where around. I woke up crying. And ever since then I’ve had a feeling that something bad is going to happen. Can somebody tell me what my dream meant?

  • Kaitlyn says:

    I just had the worst dream of my life. I have never been so scared before.

    My family ands I were in some shopping center or plaza. We were eating dinner and having a blast. We soon we hear gun shots, men are everywhere. There not shooting us or the other people, they are shooting a bunch of cops.

    I somehow get sprayed from my mom and my 6 year old brother. I am now alone with my little brother and my grandma.

    This guy comes and hauls my grandma away, he just rips her from me. I try and save her but it doesn’t work.

    I have my little brother with me now, we are running through the plaza trying to fine our mother. We find her in a crowd of people who are being ushered into a big room.

    I run in there and find her. We are all together again. Me, my mom and my two little brothers. The bad people lock us in this room. Then they come bye and run our backs, it makes us relax.

    We now can’t see, but we can bear everything around us.

    I woke up then, I was so scared. I sat here and cried for a good 20 minutes. It scared me so much, I never want to feel that fear again. There was so much fear.
