The other night I had to hide my ex boyfriends dead body under tarpaullin incase anyone found it.
I thought I've dealt with the past but there's something I haven't dealt with and it's affecting my daily life as I'm not getting enough sleep and keep waking up about 3 times a night in horror every night.
Can anyone help ? Ive been to see a hypnotherapist and said i wanted help with past issues at childhood but she said, "I dont need with the past only the future" and proceeded to tell me to imagine myself in a time line ahead of today. So I'm back to square one. I can't imagine going to a doctor and saying I need help with nightmares. No one is taking me seriously but its starting to affect my health.
Thanks in advance.
Mel, I would ask my Dream Manager for help with this. As you're lying in bed getting ready to drift off for a nice sleep, ask: "Dream Manager, would you please send me a dream that will clearly indicate the learnings these dreams are trying to get through my thick skull, and to consciously remember them?"
And look at each aspect of the dream as an aspect of yourself: what part of my consciousness am I hiding under a tarp? etc...
Nightmares are only dreams which hold messages which you've been too dense or unwilling to get in sweeter dreams. It's a good thing. Your unconscious mind is totally committed to you getting the learnings you most need, and it will stop at nothing to get through to you!
