Nightmares

Gosh darn it. I'll admit it. I'm having nightmares.

Every night now.

Not sure if that's better or worse than insomnia but I spose it means I've caught up on the exhaustion post break up and am now working on the processing of all of that. There's not a lot of room at the moment in my life for quietness and stillness for me to process what's going on and I think that's largely contributing to it. I took last week off and that was great but not enough. I guess it's never enough.

Last night I dreamed I was about to catch a plane with three of my old school friends. We were standing on the outskirts of the airport and we watched two planes crash into each other and fall to the ground. I could see the collision and then lots of black black smoke rising above the buildings. It was pretty distressing.

The night before that I dreamed an animal with clawed paws was trying to pull me out of bed from behind me and when I opened my mouth to scream, no sound would come out.

I know. I know. My mother would say this is all about my break up. Grr...

*goes to work on stillness of mind*

a few nights ago I dreamt I went to a party & got pissed. When I woke up the next day (still in the dream) I had acquired 2 extremely bogan red and black tattoos on my forearms. Oh bugger, I thought. My mum will be really shitty about this.

My nightmares frequently feature planes, too. Though usually the nightmare is simply that I'm missing my flight...

Hmmm.... that sounds more like a stress/anxiety dream.

Yeah, actually I do call those my stress dreams.

And they're really stressful! I hate missing flights.

absolutely!
In my dream last night, my friend started sobbing that she didn't want to catch our flight after that and I was telling her we could miss the plane and it was alright. Which is an odd counterbalance to being stressed at missing the flight.

Must be something in the water.

Stillness is Very Good.
