Dream Zone: Ghosts pushing open my doorWritten by Lauri Loewenberg | | firstname.lastname@example.org
I keep having this frightful nightmare of me trying to close a door in which someone or something keeps pushing from the other side. In my dream I feel that on the other side is a spirit or ghost that’s pushing through. Freaky! These types of dreams happen at least once a week for at least the last year. Please help. – Candy 31, Eagle River, WI
Lauri: The ghost/spirit is most likely something that is currently haunting you, something from your past (distant or recent) that is lingering in your psyche and bothering you. You’ve got a time frame: a year. What would you say has been bothering you or causing you upset the most for the past year? The pushing you are feeling in the dream may also be something. Are you feeling pushed around by someone or is there a lot of pressure, at say work, that is really getting to you? If so, your dream seems to be showing you that you are unable to “close the door on work” once you get home. These dreams will keep happening until you find a way to leave work… at work.
Candy replies: THAT’S IT! I am so not able to “close the door on work” & a ton of pressure. It’s a constant battle! I haven’t found the perfect outlet to this issue. A couple things I’ve tried have helped a little, but obviously not enough. What a break through! Now if I could just figure out how to take my mind off things better, I’d get back to my Johnny Depp dreams.
Fascinating Dream Fact: Peanut butter is a big nightmare giver!! Do not eat peanut butter within 2 hours of bedtime or your dreams may not be so sweet.
