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
