Your dreams can act as a sort of inner physician or psychologist, so if you dream about scenarios that cause anxiety, it’s a good idea to analyze the dream for suggestions on how to deal with the anxiety or eliminate it. Anxiety is often caused by situations that can be helped, either by changing your external circumstances or your internal ones.

Im so worried about this
I just had a dream where I was watching some horror movie about satan or something. then something in my room started acting up, moving on its own. it started following me. i called my dad and showed it to him. it didnt stop. It sort of kept following me. it wouldn't even break. so after giving up i decide that it will end only after i die.
but then theres this voice that says that even after i die i will be owned by him in after life or something like that. Like the Devil.
This creeped me out so much i wokeup with so much anxiety. im a hindu and I dont really believe in this. what could this mean?

For background, there are demons in my house, now the activity has gone down tremendously since sleeping with crystals under my pillow, lighting candles, and using myrrh, BUT, last night, I had a creepy dream. I was in my house with my best friend when all of the sudden, we could here a little girl laughing, even though I knew what it meant, I followed the sound into the bathroom. When I got there, I looked behind the shower curtain and saw a little girl with short curly brown hair just standing there. I instinctually told her to leave and that I didn’t want her there but my voice wouldn’t come out, she just smiled. I don’t know why but she slapped my stomach and then all of a sudden, the little girl turned into a man and for some reason, so did I. I mean, it was me, but I was suddenly looking through the eyes of someone else, and then the male demon said “she’s down there with a baby in her stomach”. I think he was talking about me. I’ve been reading tarot lately and I’ve been seeing the tower and empress cards a lot lately, which would normally mean that I probably couldn’t get pregnant, but I already thought I couldn’t....so I’m worried that I am and that the demons in my house are after me or some shit like that. I know this was a rollercoaster ride from start to finish but please understand that I’m freaked out, I would really appreciate anything you guys have to say on the matter. Thank you

Super creepy lucid dream in where a man tried to prove the dream world was real.
It started with me at a crossroad, I tried to make cars collapse using telekinesis after finding out I was dreaming. Nothing worked. The strangest thing was that I could use my imagination, visualize things in my head, and then come back to the dream. That's how "stable" it was.
At one point, I encountered a man who wore a black jacket, and had thin black hair. He told me this dream was real.
I sighted heavily. "This can't be real!", I let out.
"Oh really? Well how about I prove it to you?" the man said with a grin.
"I will translate any given word or sentence to French, I assume you don't know any French... You can check Google Translate to see if it's correct when you wake up.", the man added.
I started thinking. What could be a real good torture test here?
"Hmm, I have been to France many times..." I said. "I'm afraid I might've subconsciously seen the word, and it's translation already."
And then I had a grand idea: "What if I translate a sentence that I never had to use IRL in France?!", I thought.
"Ok...", I turned to the man with a smirk. "Translate: I am dreaming".
The man said something back with a French accent. I don't remember the exact word anymore as I really didn't know how to write it. But it was really short.
"Wait that short? There's no way that's the French translation."
"Oh, I'm sure it is, you can check later when you wake up."
"Can you say it again? I really want to remember it clearly..."
The man said it again, it was once again audible but impossible to write down in letters for someone that doesn't speak French (and perhaps dreaming might have something to do with it).
"I'm afraid I can't remember that too clearly", I said, worried but at the same time not willing to let this chance go.
"Just type the English sentence in Google Translate and see if it sounds the same, that should be enough.", the man said very confidently.
After I woke up, you can already imagine the first thing I did. I opened Google Translate (https://translate.google.nl/?sl=en&tl=fr&text=I%20am%20dreaming&op=translate) immediately after waking up as to avoid forgetting any more than I had to. And indeed the translated sentence sounded exactly the same. Creepy...

My aunt that passed away came to say her last goodbye in my dream
So a week ago my aunt passed away after fighting two months in a coma, cause my pneumonia. I can’t say I’m sad and I haven’t mourned her passing like most people. I am a spiritual person, so I believe she’s gone home, back into the totality of the universe, where we all come from. More than anything I’m just grateful I had the privilege to get to know here and love her, especially because she took care of me all the time I went to visit.
I wasn’t able to attend her burial ceremony, since I don’t live in the same country as her. But I’ve definitely been thinking of her the past days and all the great memories we made over the years.
Two nights ago, in a dream, I appeared at her house. I am aware she passed away so I go look for my uncle (her husband). I find him inside his room and I give him a strong hug and I tell him, “I’m so sorry for what happened, I love so much uncle.”
Then I walk outside the house onto the patio. My phone began to ring, and I pick up. On the other end somebody asks me about a friend like, “What did Mike say?” At that point I’m confused, and I as I tried to talk I say, “hello, anybody there?” No response, only noise so I hang up.
As I ended the call I see my aunt walking out from inside the house with a container filled with dishes or clothing. She walks pass me and says, “Hi son, I’ll be right there with you in a sec.” At that moment, I’m shocked, I look at my mom and ask, “does she know?” Referring if my aunt knows what happened to her and that she’ll depart this reality. My mom replies, “yes she does.”
Also I must mentioned that her body was beginning to turn like black matter. It looked like black roots had began covering her body from here feet, kinda like the roots of a tree. Only that the roots where coming from the ground.
A little while later I see my aunt in the kitchen, and my mom calls me in and tells me my aunt is ready to see me. At that point I’m a little scared and nervous. So I walk into the kitchen and I make I contact with my aunt. She looks at me and ask, “Son, do you love me.” I replied, “of course, I have always loved you and I will always love you. No matter what happens or where you go, I will forever love you.” And then I tell her, “don’t nervous, now you have become pure love, the strongest energy there is in the universe.” I hug her and she starts crying. At this point my aunt has three eyes, the third eye in the middle of her forehead.
It was so intense, it felt so real. Shortly after I wake up, and my heart is racing.
I really don’t know what her having a third eye meant. But I feel like she did visit me on the dream state, the astral dimension. I strongly believe she came to say her last goodbyes.
Not sure if anyone has such experiences before. I’d be interested to hear your take on this and what you think it meant.
Thanks for reading.
