FM – Facing My Fear in Lucid Dreaming
I was in the middle of a nightmare being chased by a strange woman who I don’t know. I suddenly realised that I was dreaming. I was thinking, “When I’m running from someone, I’m surely dreaming.”
Although I knew it was just a dream, I was so scared that I kept walking through the walls to try to hide while the woman was running after me. But then I decided that I’m sick of running and I’m going to face my fear.
I stopped running and looked at the woman, asking, “Why are you chasing me? Why do you want to kill me?” She said, “Because you killed my mum.”
Although I knew it was a dream, I cried (it’s like I didn’t have any control over my emotions) and said, “No, I didn’t kill anyone.” The woman’s face started to relax and she smiled at me, and I heard a voice. It was like a thought came across my mind, “So you know that you didn’t kill anyone; then why hate yourself? Why are you so harsh on yourself? Why do you treat yourself like you’re a bad person?”
Then some people came and took the woman. The dream scene changed and I lost awareness.
