In reply to what's wrong with my unconscious?, posted by raisinb on August 29, 2008, at 9:52:55

When I'm going through positive changes, as I have this year, I have many nights of terrible dreams and nightmares. Right on the cusp of the changes, just as I've begun doing things differently or feeling better, they come every night.. Then they fade away.

My T said it could be an attempt to express the fears aroused by the changes, or to keep alive some of the old patterns, at least in symbolic form. Just now, I"ve done new and important things that I hadn't been able to do, and, in the wake of that, I've had nightmares this week, too. But, as upsetting as it is in the moment, I don't think it's a bad sign, or something to worry about. And I've noticed the pattern all year..

For me, something warm to drink, or doing a little web surfing takes my mind away from the weird, panicky feelings--if there's no one around to wake up (I tend to wake my bf up if it's really bad).. Once or twice I've even come here in the middle of the night and written down the dreams-- that really helped, too.

So if you're like me, it's a hopeful sign--as strange as that may seem.--that you've begun to make deep changes that are really going to open up possibilities-- or already have--
