An extremely trustworthy enemy - a very emotionally poignant dream I had last week
I found myself in an unspectacular room across a round table from a middle aged man. It feels like he's been my enemy for a long time. I don't know whats going on between us but we've encountered each other and had "battles" before. I get the feeling that its me or him. There is no chance of reconciliation. There is some kind of time honored antagonism between us and we are just standing there looking at each other from across the table.
Then out of nowhere I get this immense feeling of trust and familiarity for the man. The tension and antagonism is still 100% there but I realize that although he is my enemy, I know him extremely well. I know he wants to defeat me but I also know that he "plays by the rules", and won't pull any dirty tricks on me. He forever longs to defeat me, but he can be trusted absolutely to do it in an honorable way (if that makes any sense).
I run over to a closet and open it (knowing it will be empty) to show him that I know he doesn't have anyone waiting in there to ambush me. I run to the table and wave some food sitting there in the air before him indicating that I KNOW that he would never try and feed me poisoned food.
He was my worst enemy but he was also the most trustworthy person I had ever known, and I had an immense respect for him and even a feeling of affection.
Idk I know its weird but it felt intense and poignant and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it all week. It was a truly strange and emotional realization that I could "trust" this enemy to be a respectful adversary more than I could trust anything else. I have no idea what it meant.

Dream about a possessed little girl
I hope someone can help me. I had a very disturbing dream and cannot stop thinking about it or what it could mean. There was a little girl in her room. She had long blonde hair, a pink and white dress. She was sitting on the floor of her bedroom, next to the closet. In the closet was a demon. She was possessed by this demon and wanted me to help her.
What was weird about this dream is that she said she knew I was sleeping and that she had to contact me this way because she knew she could not contact me any other way. I tried to pray for the demon to leave the little girl alone, but I understood by doing this I was unwittingly making the demon attach itself to me. I didn't want this. The little girl kept begging me to help her, to tell the demon to possess me instead. I tried to pray the prayer of St. Michael but I couldn't get the words out no matter how hard I tried.
I woke up in a sweat and my stomach hurting. I still feel shaken from this dream and don't know what to make of it.

I just woke up from an insane dream, I was in a house and when I opened the closet there was this pale “man”, with elongated ears, glowing eyes and a mouth with rows of sharp teeth, when I closed the door the letters “ZOZO” were written on the outside of the closet door and I suddenly showed up inside an empty supermarket, after this encounter I felt like I was being followed or watched throughout the entire dream. The rest is irrelevant, but if y’all need to know, it had some things involving sex (during these thoughts I felt a strong presence of someone or something, like again, like I was being followed or watched) and something about the President of Brazil turning on a PlayStation 2 for a fan.

I think this is a nightmare. Because I am disturbed.
The entire setting is in black and white. A girl with black hair and sickly pale skin lives in an old house. She's naked for some reason. She's a caretaker of a man in pajamas lying in bed. He looks really sick and couldn't walk. His entire body is pitch black, his face is covered in black bandages. He's also extremely skinny.
The girl opened the closet to look for something, a hat fell on the floor. It's a black top hat with small skulls on it. The girl grabbed her. The man asked her what's wrong. She said she remembers. Someone put this hat over her entire head, stripped her naked and tortured her. She said when she was younger a friend of hers came over to her house when her parents weren't home. The friend covered her face with this hat and stuff cookies in her vagina. Then feeds the cookie to her house cat. She said that's all she remembers.
After hearing that, the man told her to rest for a while and then do chores. The girl went for a walk into the basement. She then screamed. The man asked her what's wrong. She said she sees a body. The body is a woman in her underwear and bra. Her body looks shriveled up. There is nothing in her eye sockets. The man told her "the woman isn't actually dead. But she will die like this." The girl then remembered this shriveled up woman is her friend that tortured her. She also suddenly remembered her friend's brother would also take part in her torture.
The front door opened, the girl went to look who it is. It's her friend, holding a lantern. The girl said "the light is on so why the lantern?" She realized her friend couldn't see her. The man told her "this building is actually very dark. No one lives here." The girl said "but we live here." The man said "yes but mortals cannot see us." The girl got really confused. She then saw the man got out of his bed and can actually walk. She sees her friend rummaging through the drawers, she looks like she's finding something. The man said "she's trying to find your diary. You wrote horrible things in your diary. But after the siblings killed you, your friend ripped out the pages, imitate your hand writing and covered up her murder. She must be looking for it to show it to the police. But too bad she can't leave here." The man pushed the girl out the door. She's suddenly wearing clothes. A black trenchcoat and boots. The door suddenly closed. Her friend panicked and tried to open the door. The man picked up his hat from the floor and put it over her friend's head. Her friend started screaming. The girl then can see the man's face, it looks like a black cat. He waved goodbye to her. Something whispers in her ear, said "you are free." She then saw the entire house went up in flames. The girl then ran off into the darkness.
The man took the hat off the girl's friend. She screamed when she saw him. The man said "your brother came here earlier." He then opens a closet, she saw her brother's body. He had no eye sockets and his entire body is slashed. The man hands her the diary. She flips through it horrified. The ripped pages are back. The man told her "you're next." And puts his hat back onto her head.

Altered reality? Or just a lucid dream.
Hi. I woke up about 6 minutes ago and had to write this down somewhere. This dream has left me feeling very off about the place I'm in right now to the point where I'm not sure what's real and what's fake. I'd like to know what you all think this might be about!
In this dream, everything was normal. I'm a teenager with a single mom so it was just me and her sitting on her bed with a show going on the TV and us both writing stuff on our tablet/phones. After awhile, she gets up to go to the kitchen and the dogs follow her. I stay in there for a bit and watch the tv, talking to some friends. While talking to them they keep bringing up really weird things happening in the news, like a new Virus. Or how Corona is going to take over everything. It was odd, things they'd never talk about expecially not in our games.
Telling them I'm gonna log off and go help my mom in the kitchen, they get really mad at me and start threating me almost in a warning way. Like "if you leave us right now something bad us going to happen to you" kind of things. But I shrugged it off and left anyways.
Going to my kitchen I started noticing things that are different, just tiny things. Like my dogs sitting in places they don't normally sit, or some spots missing off of they're fur. Or how my bedroom door was first in the hallway, and the second was the bathroom. (that's switched irl). I sat down at the counter and started talking to my mom who was washing dishes, her asking if I'm noticing anything weird..almost like she was there to prompt me TO see if anything was off. Like a NPC in a video game. After that I really started to notice things. Like a dog bark from a dog eating a bone. Or a song coming from nowhere. But again, I shrug it off and ask my mom what I can do to help. She says she wants my dishes from my office, so I go. (The way my office is set up, it has this small hallway initially that leads to a closet,and then there's a door that goes into the actual room.) So walking into the small hallway the first thing I notice is that the door to the closet is gone and it's just..covered in ants. The entire empty wall is just crawling with millions of ants. I shrug that somehow off and step into my office. Now, irl a couple of weeks ago the window there broke. It was gone. But here, it was still there. I remember feeling anger. alot of anger. Then stomping up to the window and pushing the glass out of its frame so it would fall to the ground outside and shatter..the only thing on my mind was so clearly "Break the System." Over and over and over again.
I started to get a headache from hearing that so I took my headphones and put them in..they werent connecting to anything but a song was playing. Just a normal song, playing as it should..but I started to notice the pronunciation in the words were off. Like just slightly distorted to sound wrong. So I listened for a little bit on my way back to the kitchen, but got tired of hearing the distortion so I went to unplug them from..whatever they were plugged into. Right as I go to unplug them it starts saying words. Like if you took a album and played all the songs at once that's what it'd sound like. But the only words I remember clearly are "Virus, death, hell, corona, scared, alternate, please". And then I woke up.
So all in all, it's got me questioning what real and what isn't
Or if this dream was a sign that I need to do something or that things are going to get worse. What if this was a warning, somehow?
TL;DR Dreamt of a world where everything was normal until I slowly started to see that it was not and it started to aggresively tell me it wasn't normal anymore.
Can I hear your thoughts about this? Thanks for the read!
