Dealing with Nightmares
Nightmares can be very stressful and terrifying. Everyone has them and sometimes they are caused by your own subconscious thoughts and worries.
Keep a notebook or dream journal with a pen near your bed. When you wake up from a nightmare, even if you are distressed, try to write down your emotions, thoughts and what you can remember about the nightmare down.
Come morning research the symbolism of the things that happened and appeared in your nightmare. Also consider what they may mean personally to you. Do you have any memories or experiences that relate to what happened in your dream?
Look it all over after you finished your research. What picture does it paint? Is something from your waking life affecting you? Stresses? Arguments? Relationship problems? If so perhaps it is time you try to resolve these problems.
After waking up from a nightmare you can still feel rather distressed.
Take deep breaths, as scary and distressing as it is, it is still just a dream
Get some water
Stretch or walk around if you can, get the jitters and shakes out
Cleanse your room if you can, spray some moon water about or bring in some salt, help remove the negativity you just felt
Read a book, it can help relax you again and make you feel sleepy, especially after such a stressful experience
After you wrote down what you remember from your nightmare, don’t dwell on it right now. You can worry about it later, for now find other things to do if you are not interested in going back to sleep
Listen to calming music or sounds
Watch calming images or videos if needed such as rain falling, ocean waves, changing clouds, looping gifs, etc
If someone is around and there to listen, you can talk it out with them. It can really help calm you
Drink some chamomile tea, it really helps
Wash your face
Cuddle, pet or speak with a pet
Hold your favorite stuffed animal or blanket for comfort
Make a crystal grid of calming stones and negativity removal stones
If you do not plan on going back to sleep or if it is already morning, take a shower or bath
If you do not plan on going back to sleep, light some white and black candles to cleanse yourself and space of the negative energy brought by the nightmare. Do this with caution, make sure you are not too tired to do this. Fires are not fun or safe

The sharp, steely blade pierced the giant spider

turned to face the other way, dragging the blade clean through the creature. It let out a screech as it curled in on
the dwarves had just been freed from the webbed cocoons and were in the process
of fighting the spiders off so you could escape. Of all the things you’ve faced on the journey
so far, these giant spiders were probably the worst. Yes, giant spiders were certainly not your
cup of tea. Just when you killed one and
took a moment to breathe, another two would creep up on you from behind.
“Ah!” You screamed.
This particular spider’s face was way too close for comfort as it
snapped at you. You jumped back,
swinging your sword to slice its front.
However, it knocked the blade from your hand with one of its spindly
legs. Fortunately, you were able to whip
out your dagger and slash at the spider furiously as you continued to back away. A branch caught your boot, and you fell to
the forest floor.
spider got the upper hand in the fight and lunged at you swiftly. However, a figure jumped between you and the
creature, thrusting a blade into its head.
you exclaimed in relief. The spider
collapsed, and Thorin turned to kneel in front of you, taking hold of your
are you alright?”
you breathed, nodding. Your voice shook
and your eyes were still wide from the shock of the fight. “I’m fine.”
Thorin noticed this and pulled you to your feet.

your gaze sincerely. “You’re safe now. By my side.”
was no doubt that a bond had formed between the two of your over the course of
the journey. Thorin had some trust
issues in the beginning because of the fact that you’re not a dwarf. But he could not deny your skill in battle as
well as how you cared for the others.
His words calmed you, despite the ongoing
battle. You took a deep breath and
visibly relaxed, taking your hand from his only to retrieve your sword. You nodded once more to assure him that you
were ready to join the fight again. The
two of your regrouped with the others and tried to look for a way out.
But at that moment, a figure came
sliding down from the treetops, slashing spiders along the way. The blonde elf slid to a stop, aiming his bow
at the Company. Thorin’s gaze flickered
to you with concern before he stepped in front of you protectively as more
elves emerged, aiming weapons at your group.
The tension was so thick that you could just cut it with a knife. You knew very well how Thorin felt about
honesty, despite your feelings for a certain rescuer that you remained loyal to, you were slightly taken aback by how beautiful the stranger in front
of you was, with long blonde hair and such a fair face.
“Do not think I won’t kill you,
dwarf,” the stranger said. “It would be
Handsome, but certainly not very
nice. Definitely not like the people of Rivendell. You wanted to speak up in defiance, to challenge the elf for saying something like that to Thorin, but the Company was terribly outnumbered. One insult from you could endanger your friends.
So, you glared at him as the others closed in on you and the Company.
