Terrifying lucid dreams hurt more in a country where they don't have remedies for ghosts
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
I'm in college in South Korea and for the past three months I have had some sleep disorder. When I sleep, I see things.
It looks to me like the dorm is locked and that someone is trying to strangle me. I try to open the door as I know that this is a dream and the suffering will go away when I get up and open the door, but I can hardly move. So, I fall from my bed and crawl towards the door and open it in agony. I feel scared and call for the people in the corridor. But all the dormitories are deserted and I cannot see anyone.
But after a while, the corridor of the dormitory starts to fill with hyenas and wolves. I scream, but no one comes to my rescue. So, what happened? Is this is another level of dreaming? I thought I got up and escaped from the man who was strangling me but now there are the wolves. I know I am getting deeper and the suffering is getting acute.
At that point, I pray for my Chinese dorm mates to show up and open the door from the outside because I know I am still dreaming but I cannot get up on my own. But they never show up in time to save me and I wake up tired, with a headache and frightened.
Now that I am awake I go to the door and check it out and it wasn't locked at all.
Such a story is common in my country of Ethiopia and I had similar experiences when I was there. But it hurts more in a foreign country where they don't have traditional remedies for ghosts
