Dream interpretation - nightmares
THE DREAM The following are summaries of dreams that involved nightmares. The dream interpretation tries to isolate the meaning of the nightmare in each case by drawing upon real life background information - especially feelings from the day before.
A nightmare dream linked to the dreamer thinking about TV coverage of Hurricane Katrina. Seeing these extremely traumatic scenes disturbed the dreamer because this disaster was happening to ordinary Americans like the dreamer.
A nightmare dream was linked to the dreamers best friend dying just two months before. This trauma was still alive in his mind.
A nightmare dream linked to the dreamer discovering some real weaknesses in someone she used to admire. Now she just saw him as pathetic. The nightmare linked to her not knowing what to say to him - it was a real dilemma. How could she tell someone she loved that she thought they were pathetic.
A nightmare dream symbolised the dreamers feelings of guilt. He had just handed in his notice at work and felt guilty because there were real staff shortages. He felt he was letting his team down.
A nightmare dream linked to the dreamers terrible behaviour the day before. He treated someone very badly and realised that although he got away with it things could easily have gone badly - this person could have retaliated.

Nightmares of death linked to the dreamers inability to trust anyone. He was the emperor of China and after several attempts on his life he really could not trust anyone. One attempt on his life was from his own mother! How could he ever trust anyone.
