Just woke up feeling so guilty :(
Such a bad dream. I was at the river, there was an event going on with a ton of people. A kid came up to me and showed me their guinea pig, which I played with for a while. Then I had to leave and the kid traded for their pet tarantula. As I held it, I just thought it was the cutest thing ever. When I got home I put it in the aquarium (where another tarantula lived but for some reason I thought my bf had let it out to wander around? Idk). Then I realized both tarantulas were now in the aquarium and I felt a sudden panic, cause I knew my bf's tarantula was hungry. Before I could save the new spider the other one was doing her happy dance (that she does after she eats) and she attacked. I watched in horror as she killed the other one. They didnt even fight, she just pounced and sunk her fangs into it :( at one point they were both wandering around and I was like oh thank god, I gotta get it out. Then it was as if she had dialogue and I could hear her say, I thought I killed you, and knock the other one down and "stab" it with her fangs. I just thinking omg I'm gonna have to replace this kids spider.
Anyway then I woke up feeling horrible and uneasy. There was more to the dream, including a large man stealing a lot of stuff from the people at the river, and when I told him "fuck you" he said a really funny comeback about me not being fuckable. I wish I could remember it exactly.
Thanks for reading, just wanted to jot this down lol

Big white OWL in my dream??
In my dream I was at kitchen with my mother and my husband. Then we’ve seen a giant (about 2 ft) white owl standing behind our glass door staring at us.
I was sitting at the desk with my husband and the owl suddenly appeared near the desk inside our house and was staring at me. I normally am very scared of animals so I was scared in my dream as well. My husband got away from the table and was happy and chill as always. I was panicking and asking for his help.
The owl was still and constantly staring at me. I tried to get him away from me but couldnt succeed. Then I slightly petted him just like a dog to make him like me I guess. He was like obsessed with me and didnt let me go.
Eventually I managed to get up from the desk and walk to my husband and the owl attacked me at that point and I woke up with horror and heart beat.
Do you know what it can mean? It says owls represent spiritual things etc but dont know how to interpret. I’m at one of the most depressed times of my life so wanted to ask
Btw I didnt see any owls anywhere in real life, tv etc or talked about them with anyone

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?

Lars and Tsil
The dream itself was very long and draining to have. I was watching a 2 hour long analysis/breakdown of an experimental horror movie. The title of the movie, as you may be able to guess, was "Lars and Tsil". It was the most depressing, soul-crushing piece of media someone could watch, and I had to google it to make sure it was really a dream, as I could've watched it in a semi-lucid, semi-blackout drunk state.
The movie was about a food reviewer (Lars) and his mom (Tsil). It was shot like a home movie, and followed the two main characters in their daily lives. They lived in the woods, secluded from society, and became increasingly shut-in as the movie went on. Lars' videos became stranger and his mannerisms, increasingly cryptic, he spoke only in tongues and riddles near the end and his took only a measly bite of the food he was reviewing.
The mom, Tsil, spoke less and less as time went by and would spend all day in her rocking chair, staring at a clock on the wall. The analysis argued she was simply tired of living and waited for her own death, or the moment this clock would stop ticking.
By the end of the movie, they made a suicide pact and ended their lives. The last scene was that of an obituary on a newspaper, zooming out, you could see that it was an empty street. A gust of wind blew the newspaper into a sewer grate, and credits rolled. This supposedly symbolized how everyone is forgotten in the end, no matter how they lived their lives. The only thing you could control was *how long* before you were forgotten.
This dream has left me deeply shaken and I feel an omnipresent dread. This dream fucked me up just a little.

Really bad horror nightmare?
I don’t dream too often, but last night when I woke up from this dream it made me stay awake for a moment because I realized how scary it was. I’ll try to keep this short. Basically I live in a very small house (one room) with my dad, my stepmom (I think -some sort of mother figure) and what I’m thinking is my sister or step sister. The whole dream we’re all on edge because my sister is crazy (it’s explained to be caused by too much exposure to radiation or something like that). She wants to kill us whenever she gets a chance. In weird ways. She would go from brushing my step mom’s hair then mid stroke get ready to beat her with it in the head. We’d have to handcuff her at night. And she always wanted these special treats, some sort of salted caramel cookie bar (very random). Anyway, I don’t remember too much but I remember being very creeped out (it was a lot creepier than I can describe). And when I woke up at like 2 am -this has happened before- it’s like I heard a quick train horn. I don’t live by any trains, but I swear I heard something of that nature.
