||SUPER WEIRD DREAM||... how and why do we dream what we dream?
So this dream took place in some type of project homes and in it, It was pretty run down with Mexican and black people living there. The first time I was there in the dream I witnessed a woman scalping a child’s head with a carrot peeler. And I was disgusted and just in shock, as I walked away they looked at me asking what? As if it was normal. And I stated what she was doing and she answered back yes and even the victim answered back yes nonchalantly like this was a punishment. After I walked away from them ; this a kid with a LR started chasing me basically threatening to shoot me. But for some reason in the dream I kept trying to exit like it was a video game but I could never leave. Until I grabbed his gun and threw it. Then he pulled out a hammer. Until he gave up chasing me. After that I rode my skateboard trying to find a exit. Out of nowhere my friend joined my dream and I started to reiterate everything that happened to me previously in the dream (Still in the dream) We rode by a few people and these old men with basketball were around and I greeted them thinking they were friendly... but they started following us and one ending up having a hammer and the other with a dolly seeming they were gonna kidnap us. But we ended up exiting the complex and they basically chased us out. And they just ended up backing off.
Throughout this dream I wasn’t scared at all just very confused why I was dreaming about this. When I dream I usually do a lot of dream hopping for some reason. But I have no idea why I would even have this type of dream because I’m not exposed to any of those types of incidents or ect. But I’m open to and question or answer. Love to all 🤍

Dream about demons, fees and a sword. Any idea what it means?
I was lead into a pink room with a bed directly in the middle of the room. A creature that was a mix of man, women and fawn came and sexually assaulted me on the bed. (This was years before I was actually sexually assaulted in real life) I pulled away and tried to fight it but it continued... after I was unchained and yanked from the bed, and lead through many many different rooms of an old bath house. Everything was dark and damp,cool air frosting my skin. we went through the last door that opened up to a huge area that looked like a mix between a casino and somewhere you would hold a wedding reception with large wide stairs leading to other parts of the building. Green carpet covered the floors with dim yellow lights illuminating green velvet tables.
There were so many strangers there but the room felt relatively empty. The only person I recognized was a girl I met in college, friend but definitely not close enough to be in my dream. She grabbed my hand and told me we had to go see the oracle, it was important. As we walked to a door an older weathered women grabbed my arm and screamed in my face I needed to pay my fee if I wanted to find out my future. Her unkept hair was everywhere, a few miles scattered her face while her hot breath raked my skin. I told her I wasn’t interested in knowing my future.
Emily then continued to lead me up a dimly lit staircase. Each level had a platform with a window, the same kind you would see at a doctors office where they slide the glass to talk to you. Each level had a different window with a different sign next to it. The placard would say ‘how many children will you have’ or ‘who will you marry’ next to it. Emily stopped at one that would tell you where you would end up living in the future. The glass window slid to revile a man behind the glass, black, like a shadow in a black suite and tie but his face has no distinguishable features but a ghostly haze settled around him. He handed me a piece of paper as well as another piece of paper to a man standing next to me who I otherwise would not have noticed. He instructed to unfold the paper, don’t look and point to a spot (I figured this would be more complex than pointing to a spot on a map but hey, work smarter not harder right?) I pointed to Pennsylvania the man next to me pointed to Florida. Emily told me she had just left Florida and was offered a job in penn. the demon man said ‘then that is your fate’ he then looked at me and asked if I would like to know where I would end up and I told him ‘no, I don’t want to know my future’. Then that annoying creepy women ran up to me screaming in my face I would have to pay a fee. I ignored her and we continued up the staircase. As we continued the walls and lights became darker the corridor thinner, the wooden walls became damper and we climbed. We passed window after window, placard after placard with what that demon specialized in until we reached the top.
The last room at the top was a nail salon filled with all kinds of creatures. Half human half animal, mythical you name it. As we opened the door a half women half dawn with bright pink curly hair passed me. I closed my eyes and shook my head trying to grasp where I was and when I opened them I was some how ripped from the salon to the edge of a cliff outside. The air was cold and the wind felt like it was going right through me. I turned to see someone I loved on the ground, badly hurt but I knew so couldn’t save them then a demon with a hammer came up to us and slammed it against my loved ones body, shattering them into a hundred mirrored piece like glass in my hands. I look to my right and a girl not much younger than me reached her hand into the pile of glass where my loved one fell and pulled out a sword covered in blood and looked me dead in the eye and licked the blood off the sword. Then I woke up.

Horrible dream (Trigger warnings, abortion, bus plunges into waterway
This dream was very disturbing to me. I dreamed that I was going on a trip with a travel group and we are going over a bridge which has a body of water. The bus driver deliberately crashes the railing and the bus plunges into the water. Then the dream shifts to something unrelated.
The next part of the dream I am trying to get out of a wood panel which is on a construction site. I'm trapped inside. I am talking to the construction worker, asking him to get me out. He bangs the panel with a hammer and then I'm transformed to another place.
In the dream I'm in my mid 20's and had a recent abortion. A woman comes up to me and gives me a box which contains the remains of the fetus (after the abortion, there was a cremation). She opens the box and said, "You did this." Then she hands it to me and walks away. Then I woke up.
I was very upset when I woke up from this nightmare. I have never been pregnant nor have I had an abortion which makes this dream, very very weird.
During the last couple of months, some unexpected things happened to me that really upset me but have nothing to do with what I dreamed.

First nightmare in a long time
Background: I’m a 21 year old women with a two year old child named melody and a husband named nick. We all use to live in a pretty run down triplex house and moved out of it two years ago. Last night I had a dream about being back there and I’m not sure why.
My family and I were living at the old place but it looked different. It was basically an entire new house but I remember calling it 5933 like the old place. I was watching an old friends kitten for her and I had melody with me and I noticed that our windows were open so I went to check and they were missing. Like the windows were just gone. I could reach out and touch air. I start getting really suspicious and take melody to the front of the house where I noticed that the door wasn’t locked and chained. As soon as I noticed my husband Nick opened it and started yelling about how we have to keep the door locked at all times. I told him to stop yelling because I was trying to figure out what was going on with the windows and felt like someone was nearby and he wouldn’t because he wasn’t listening and was mad about the door. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw a lady running away with one of our windows and I went outside and tackled her and you could tell she was tweaking. She was on serious drugs. I pulled her inside and my husband came back asking where the kitten was and this lady was just laughing and laughing and finally she told me that she stole him and duct taped him up and killed him with a screw driver. She tried to reach behind her to get a screw driver we had on the floor and tried stabbing me but she was so out of it that she was barely tapping me with it. I held her down on the ground and kept trying to call 9 1 1 but none of the calls went through. My husband tried calling and couldn’t hear anything so he told them what was going on and our address in hopes maybe they could hear us but we couldn’t hear them. He grabbed our daughter melody and I picked up this lady because she was saying her boyfriend was coming for us and laughing and I carried her outside to get better service and I saw a guy on a bike and he said “hey you wanna put my wife down there?” He flashed some type of weapon and I knew I couldn’t outrun him when he was on a bike but I knew if I let her down the police would never find them and they would kill me. So I tried to run carrying her and he started biking towards me and I woke up.
I haven’t had a nightmare in a few months. I use to have them almost every night until I started taking zzzquil to help me sleep. Last night I had taken zzzquil just like every night to help me sleep but still had a nightmare. I’m not sure what it means at all and it’s so specific I can’t find anything on dream interpretation. Thanks in advance if anyone is able to understand that big mess...
