I actually had a nightmare this last saturday night, It jolted me awake at 4 am and I didn’t sleep afterwards.
It was so very different from ones I have had before.
I dreamt that my entire home was being overrun by wild hunters,Panthers,Lions Tigers… strangely baboons, I slowly saw each thing, Person or Animal I loved devoured by one of the predators and i had to fight them off to save myself and the only thing that survived,My cat jackie.
She became trapped in the paws of a lion, I managed to free her but she was very injured, I kicked the Lion in the face, solid in the snout,it stunned it long enough I could get away to the top attic floor of my house. Once there The bottom of the stairs were stalked by the predators, And i couldn’t get jackie under control because she is quite the huntress always bringing me dead birds or geckos…..
I had to fight off and kill each animal with my bare hands
I i lost a massive part of my right thigh
I lost my left hand and a breast but I killed them all and fed on them as they had fed on those I loved, then I awoke, couldn’t find the cat and was terrified for a split second I was in my nightmares reality, until I saw my husband alive and completely intact.
I can only assume this nightmare represented some sort of struggle, maybe for alpha status or that I have a feeling of being closed down,hunted.
Whatever it was, I DONT EVER want to “dream” it again.
