OK~ I am wondering what people think...
last night I had a very hard time falling asleep.... really, I had too much caffeine in the afternoon (which I know better not to do!)) ;-) and was a bit wired/stimulated from dance class. So my sleep was very light almost the whole night and I was feeling a bit flustered, just wanted to pass out.
Well, at one point, I must've totally fallen out, or fallen at least into some level of dream state because what I remembered was waking up with that total feeling of fEAR vibrating thru my whole body. Do you know what I'm talking about? When you have a scary dream and you wake up out of it and your whole body is like burning tingling with fear?
What I remembered upon waking was that something was trying to attack me, like a spirit or something and the way I protected myself was somehow to end up in an enclosed room.... I remember literally pulling a latch shut to lock myself in. I was enclosed completely then by four walls, a floor, and ceiling. thats when I woke up.
I don't remember the last time I woke up from a dream with my body tingling in that fear that. Do you think it was just funky mind energy all gunked up from not being able to fall asleep (though I question that because I semi-frequently have trouble falling asleep) or was it a spirit? Does it matter to know or not know?
I was so relieved though when i woke up to realize I was dreaming.
