During my childhood and early teen years I would have this nightmare where I was running from what I can only explain as a dark entity that would take different forms (Dark clouds, dark figures etc). I was always aware it was the same entity from just a feeling I got.
I would have the dream maybe 2 times a year if that but I would always remember this entity's presence in the dreams. I would often be running through dark landscapes and not knowing where I was trying to escape to due to the visibility.
Other times I would be running from it up tall run down buildings with small passages into dark rooms. The feeling of fear was overwhelming and I would often wake up with my heart beating and cold sweats.
During my early teens I remember getting these dreams quite often and would be scared to go back to sleep after waking from them as I knew I would slip back into this nightmare place.
About a month ago after not having the dream for a couple of years I appeared into a dark grassy field with a light over me, lighting up a circle around me with a 10 meter radius (If you imagine a UFO and their light beams they shine down). I was trapped in the middle of this light wherever I ran. I could feel the presence of the entity approaching.
I began to run away as I did all my life in these nightmares but all of a sudden this feeling came over me to stop running. I don't know where or why it came over me but I halted turned around and began to chase the entity which was in a wolf like form and began to wrestle it down once I had caught to it.
It whimpered off out of the bright light so I couldn't see it and a overpowering feeling of joy and relief came over me. I thought I had done it, I was free and without the entity being in sight it was telling me it had chased me through different nightmares to try and show I can overcome the scary and unknown and how facing things is usually a lot easier than what your mind thinks could/will happen.
Since then I haven't had any dreams with this entity chasing me but I have had dreams where beings are coming for me. Although now I am the one who takes these beings head on to protect the people in my dreams or myself. I still have this feeling the entity watches over but he is now a friend.
-- I believe these dreams were trying to tell me that your mind often comes up with the worse possible scenarios about things, I guess it's a survival thing? Although it never usually is as bad as you think and you should trust in yourself to brave it out and go head on with your problems. This is my first time on this site and now I have come across it I will defiantly be making a note of all my dreams of the future sharing them, thank you for reading! - Come check out my site at www.flowertek.com ! --
