Btw guys I went to bed at around 9 p.m. last night, Friday, which is really early as the night before, Thursday, I went to bed at 4 a.m. since I was doing my coursework and had only slept for 3 hours.I'm telling you guys this as this could have happened just because of sleep deprivation, irregular sleeping patterns, or because of my age(I'm 16) like NHS said. Also I woke up at around 7 am today, Saturday, stayed in bed and read a fan fiction on livejournal about this boy worrying about being 17 and how they had to make some major life choices, such as university, splitting from friends, etc. and I fell asleep worrying about the same things about how I’m still not sure what I want to do with my life and which Universities I want to go to, I have to decide all of this by this year in September. I’m a first year student at 6th Form right now. I’m telling you guys this because maybe this triggered what I dreamt about in some sort of weird way but that was the last thing that I thought about before drifting off to sleep and dreaming about this. But guys this is going to be a really long-winded story so just bear with me.
So here goes, sorry if some bits don’t make sense as I can only recall vivid images of it.
It started with me and my brother watching some video on YouTube about biscuits, it was about what the story was behind the biscuit, how they came up with the name, but I guess this isn't really relevant but I just want to provide you with every little detail, I don’t want to miss out anything that could be important. So while watching that video my brother kept trying to wind me up by saying I’m going to tell mum and dad that parents evening is extremely important so they’d want to go. Idk where this came from but in my dream there was a parents evening and I was trying to persuade my parents not to go saying it’s just a waste of time and how the teachers always say the same things, etc. it was probably because recently we had mock exams and I haven’t been doing well at all but there is no parents evening happening any time soon in reality. Then it just sort of transitioned into me being in college, in a tutorial, and I saw few of the boys from my tutorial lesson in there as well. I was sat near the windows, and it was raining really heavily outside, I remember I kept thinking today is really weird or something down that line in my dream. Out of nowhere then there was this boy/man popping his head through the window that was open and singing or talking? Idk in a really deep voice, and he was dressed in a very bizarre fashion with sunglasses on, he was wearing layers and layers of dark clothing and everything was dragged down because of the heaviness of the rain and he looked sort of like a monster. I guess this isn't relevant either but then apparently it was because we were filming for a show or something and as I saw Cody from Suite life of Zack and Cody, I’m going to assume it was for that show. I guess so far it’s been pretty irrelevant, sorry for wasting your time but now on to the creepy, interesting? parts.
So I was having dinner with my mum and my grandma, who passed away 6 years ago now. We were in this really old, dark horror movie type room, complete with candles as the only source of light. I don’t remember what happened then but suddenly we were all together in bed, holding on to each other tightly and ready to fall asleep. My grandma was in the middle with me and my mum by her sides. I vaguely remember that mum and I were “aware” that grandma isn't alive anymore and this possibly could be her ghost that we're cuddling to but we still ignored the fact and were still in bed with her. Then just when we were about to fall asleep, the clock hit 12 and there was this ting ting ting sound and some alarm went off and suddenly my grandma was facing me in bed and there was this sort of clicking sound, you know when everything connects together, it was sort of like my grandma's spirit connecting to my body and I felt my body being paralysed and my grandma's spirit? clinging onto me, idk if it was my grandma anymore though. She looked like one of those creepy old women with grey wiry hair from a horror movie. I remember trying to move but my body was paralysed, every part of my body felt locked and thinking that maybe this is a dream and I should really try and move, and I could when I concentrated really hard, I could move a little bit but then I would feel like something heavy sitting on my chest and I would feel trapped again. In between I also kept seeing images of like a bathtub with a knife in it and the tub was filled nearly halfway through with a mixture of blood and water which is really creepy.
This is going to be really confusing now as I think by now in my dream I was dreaming that I was in a dream as I could see myself sleeping soundly and thinking I should make a sound in the second dream and I could in the real dream but I could see in the second dream that I wasn't making any sound and it looked like I was peacefully sleeping in my own bed right in the middle of it. So I’m going to label the dream where I can actually see me being in this old, dingy bed with an old woman besides my bed as the real dream and where I can see myself sleeping peacefully with no sign of panic or worry, in my own bed as the second dream.
By now I could hear my mum humming to a song outside as she was ironing or something I guess?, btw this one was in real life, not in the second dream or the real dream, so I guess I was half-awake now but I was still trying really hard to make movements in my second dream but I was still feeling really trapped in my dream, unable to move, feeling paralysed. Then out of nowhere suddenly I opened my eyes in real life and everything went away and my mum humming outside my bedroom was much clearer and I was feeling very tired and still sleepy. I could move myself freely, it was still heavy movements but this was probably because of just waking up. It was nearly 10 a.m. when I woke up and from then on I can’t stop thinking about that dream and have tried looking for similar stories in the internet, curious to know what caused this, etc. and I'm finding out now it's something called sleep paralysis, which sounds similar to what I had but I’m not sure.
Can you guys help me out, why you think this happened or what triggered it, or even what the meaning of this dream could be? I’m really sorry as this may have been such a confusing piece of story to keep up with or understand, but it’s really difficult to describe a dream especially when there’s so much going on and you only remember it vividly. Although I guess judging from the length of this, I remember it more than vividly. Oh dear it’s on 1,308 word count now. I’m really sorry but help me out? Thank you.
