  1. Once I had a strange dream about a Latin girl and her family that owned a store, but in the back of the store served as a “botanica”. The family was persecuted by the locals who burned it down; I felt the heat of the fire, the pain of the girl because I was the girl in the dream. Blew my mind!

  2. Aww I have missed getting involved with these questions! My best nightmare would probably be the reoccurring nightmare I have that a tidal wave is about to sweep over me but last minute I realise I am dreaming and can morph the water around me to stop it engulfing me. It’s terrifying but kind of cool haha!

      1. I’d say for about 95% of my dreams I can, especially if they’re recurring because I remember them as they’re happening and I can either control what’s happening or wake myself up.

  3. My life. Seriously because for some reason i am aware when i’m dreaming… If dreams get scary or something i just think of something else that won’t let that dream turn into a nightmare

  4. Not sure if this is my best nightmare, but it is one of them: Playing poker with vampires after school. Scarier than it sounds.There was a creepy part with coffins hidden in some locked room.

  5. It was during the Second World War, when I was hiding behind a car and anyway an SS man found me, and shot me. I died then. That was the best nightmare I ever had. At least now, after a few years of therapy, I am able to interpret it correctly 🙂

      1. The SS man was a symbol of one of my demons, and by that time I wasn’t able to fight it, but I surrendered to it – allowed it to kill me. A few years later I had another amazing dream. There was a devil that came uninvited to my flat. I immediately started fighting him, even though he was big and scary, and finally kicked him away from my home 🙂 This time I was able to recognise and fight my demon.

      2. The second dream was more explicit. I’m wondering what parts of your personality these demons represented.

  6. Zombies are my biggest fear. So those dreams are always like a movie. The “best” one went something like this:

    Early morning I’m camped out with other survivors in a house. We have most the windows covered with wooden planks. We can hear them coming. They scream with a mix of moans as they get closer. They aren’t vicious until they see you. They surround the house. We couldn’t wait anymore. We rush the zombies almost everyone dies. I barely make it out and run down the road. The dream would repeat over and over until I woke up.

  7. The best nightmare I had was after my ex-husband’s mother told me that I can change my dreams about my her son trying to hurt me by fighting back. She said that I could control my dream any way I wanted. She said that I could even conjure up a sword if I wanted to. So, that’s what I did the very next time I had that dream and I won.

    1. So the switch from not controlling your dreams to controlling them was finding out that it’s possible? That’s interesting.

    2. Carine, I had a similar experience. In my dream I was chased by a man who wanted to kill me. For many nights in a row he did, every time the same, by stabbing me with a knife in my plexus, after he had caught me in a slaughterhouse.

      At some point I became lucid, I realized it was just a dream and I taught myself to wake up from the dream by doing big movements with my hands, like I was flying. The movement I was making in the dream had a countermovement in real life. And then I would wake up.

      After learning this, I kept on having the same dream, and being lucid, I said to myself: I need to stop being afraid of that man and being afraid of dying…again.

      So, for many nights I had tried to do things differently, instead of taking a tram, I would take the metro, instead of entering a building, I would go in the opposite direction, or I would climb some stairs instead of going into a park. I did this for many nights, but with no use. Every time, I would see myself in the slaughterhouse getting stabbed.

      Actually, many years after that experience, the dream had become true in a metaphorical sense: I got emotionally killed by my ex-husband. It had been about the karma I could not escape from.

  8. There is one dream about the Apocalypse – had it like 15 years ago, for 2-3 times a week for 3-4 months. All night I was the savior for many people which I didn’t know. They were everywhere, and I was the one to help them escape alive from earthquakes, storms, scary creatures, big waters or crazy fire. Obviously I had powers, like flying and being fireproof, sometimes I had a sword… The only problem after having that Apocalypse dream was with the next-day physical and emotional exhaustion in real life.

      1. Bogdan, you know, saving people takes a lot of effort, especially when you are saving people who don’t want to be saved. :-))

        So, just to answer your question, that dream always had made me feel drained the next morning.
