To some extent, I am desensitized to nightmares. Due to my dark viewing & listening habits, it's really no surprise that negativity encapsulates my dreams on a regular basis. From time to time, though, I find myself feeling unnerved or crestfallen by nightmares. In recent memory, I remember seeing in my sleep a small child -- my daughter, it would seem -- who'd been bullied severely by her classmates. Mind you, I don't have any children. Oddly enough, her features were Indian (I'm Native American, & not from India as she seemed to be). It was during a field trip to a museum where she decided -- in her grief -- to throw herself over the railing of an interior balcony. She died from the fall. The first thing was to see her up close. I can clearly recall feeling despondent when I saw her crushed, misshapen little face half-sunken in a sanguineous puddle.
Having shared that, I encourage others to describe any recent dreams that involve unsettling imagery.
