Eeriness (Elements of Dreams) #AtoZChallenge
All dreams have a certain quality of the ethereal and eerie. The very fact that we are "seeing" these night stories is just a little bit eerie, don't you think? Even pleasant or happy dreams will have a sense of an eerie presence lurking in the background as though we are being watched. When you start examining the dream layers some of the eeriness becomes more apparent.
At any time a dream can break out into an unsettling circumstance which can even become terror. Sometimes we don't know why we are afraid or the source of the terror. Then there are the times when we might not be necessarily be afraid by the dream, but what we are experiencing is just a bit disconcerting.
Sleep is a necessary time of rest for our bodies and minds, but it is also a time when we become vulnerable. Likewise our mind opens up into a mysterious dimension of the subconscious where things are strange to say the least. Or to say it another way: Eerie.
Do you feel that dreams have a sense of eeriness? Do you ever have dreams that are absolutely normal in every way? Do you enjoy the weirdness of the dream world?
