    Im not a religious man nor am I a hater by any stretch . I had a dream Saturday night that I was talking to satan. Here is how it went.


    When I saw him ( Two smallish horns ,assuming it was him red flesh with holes in the flesh) I asked what was going on and he said.


    “Im not ready for you yet” I said “yet” and he gave the most awesome evil grin and said “ not yet”..


    I woke up screaming so loud that it hurt my stomach… Thoughts?

    To me sound like it could have been a form of test from a spiritual realm, But it could also maybe reflect a form of fear within you?

    Were you thinking of Satan or of death-related issues that day?

    Nothing related to death? Maybe you watched a movie that had something to do with death recently?

    Yeah i suppose so. Anyway, what I was getting at is that most dreams are somehow based on what we've thought about during the day or in recent days coupled in with a lot of nonsense.

    Is there anything you anticipate to fundamentally change in your life in the near future? Graduating, change of job, retiring, getting married?

    I have a background in psychology and what I would do is to ask you to explore the meaning using various therapeutic approaches. There are too many possibilities to be conclusive at this point. But that it affected you so strongly is a marker for something very important psychologically in the dream.

    Another avenue of approach is to ask if you've done something that you consider to be a bad mistake. Or to ask if there's anything in your background when you were growing up that including satanic negativity such as some church teachings.

    I'm going to resist the temptation to suggest that maybe it's time to get ready, and instead ask you what you think you would need/want/like to do before you leave this world?

    My guess is that you had a dream / nightmare. Nothing more to it

    And welcome to RF

    Could be a form of sleep paralysis, maybe?

    Sleep paralysis is when, during waking up or falling asleep, a person is aware but unable to move or speak.[1][2] During an episode, one may hallucinate (hear, feel, or see things that are not there), which often results in fear.[1] Episodes generally last less than a couple of minutes.[2] It may occur as a single episode or be recurrent.[1]

    The condition may occur in those who are otherwise healthy or those with narcolepsy, or it may run in families as a result of specific genetic changes.[2] The condition can be triggered by sleep deprivation, psychological stress, or abnormal sleep cycles.[2] The underlying mechanism is believed to involve a dysfunction in REM sleep.[2] Diagnosis is based on a person's description.[2] Other conditions that can present similarly include narcolepsy, atonic seizure, and hypokalemic periodic paralysis.[2]

    Treatment options for sleep paralysis have been poorly studied.[1] It is recommended that people be reassured that the condition is common and generally not serious.[1] Other efforts that may be tried include sleep hygiene, cognitive behavioral therapy, and antidepressants.[1]

    Between 8% and 50% of people experience sleep paralysis at some time.[2][3] About 5% of people have regular episodes.[2] Males and females are affected equally.[2] Sleep paralysis has been described throughout history.[1] It is believed to have played a role in the creation of stories about alien abduction and other paranormal events.[1]

    Does anyone really know why we dream and where dreams come from? Seems like I have a whole other life in my dreams with people who are familiar to me there, that I don't even know in real life. Some experts suggest that our dreams are just our brains getting rid of accumulated rubbish....and I can't argue with that since many of the dreams I remember are often rubbish. Sometimes they are hilarious!

    Dreams don't have to have meaning unless we want to read something into them.....IMO.

    Sounds to me like you're not yet ready for something.
