Scary Dream Where I Saw Myself From Above The Bed

So this dream occurred probably about a month ago.  In the dream I saw myself from above the bed wearing a nightgown I actually have but not the one I was wearing when the dream occurred and there was a person (a male) holding a long, thin knife to my neck.  (Could have even been one of those skinny handsaws).  I couldn't see his face, just his arm and hand holding the knife and he was wearing a black and white striped, long sleeved, close-fitting shirt.  I immediately woke up after this 'dream' and the natural light in the room was identical to the light in the dream as if it had really happened but there was no one in the room when I woke up of course.  I was a little startled because I was thinking, "Did that really happen, is it going to happen, or was it just a scary dream?"  Has anyone else ever had a dream like this?  This is the first time something like his has happened so it freaked me out a bit.

@calla-lily:

That is certainly a scary thing to have happen. We are all so vulnerable sleeping. Dreams are always a bit tricky to interpret. Sometimes a dream is just your mind working away beneath the surface working through fears. Other times you may have an angel or spirit drop ideas in your dream as a lesson or warning. And then some people see the future or relive a past life through dreams.

All in all I think it may be hard to pinpoint what you should take from this until you learn more from future dreams or life events that somehow connect. But when I have dreams like this happen I always default to trying to understand what the lesson might be. I think you dreaming of yourself watching yourself means you tapped into something spiritual (I sometimes get like this when having deep meditation). I also think your note on the lighting is telling. That could be a visual clue for you to pay attention and not just shrug this off as a meaningless dream. My advice would be to default to what the meaning may be. And without trying to scare you I think the meaning may be for you to be more careful with men in the near term. It could mean that someone will try to get close to you and hurt you emotionally. It could also be a warning to be more careful with your personal safety (locking doors and windows at home etc...).  I'm not saying be paranoid or live scared. Just make a mental note to be safer and more suspicious for a while until more of the story gets filled in for you.

I love your interpretation of her dream. I think that makes logical sense.

Thank you Hop Daddy and Hermes.  A lot of what both of you said makes sense.  I was through a divorce with an abusive (narc) ex-husband a few years ago, followed back-to-back with a boss I no longer work for who was the same.  After those experiences, although my empathic abilities were still going strong, the other abilities seemed to be clogged.  It's taken a while to feel as if I've gotten my entire self back but the other experiences are slowly starting to trickle back in as well.  (Have taken extra precautions at home with safety too, just to be sure.)  Seeing myself in the dream and tapping into something spiritual, plus the knife, I wonder if it meant that my 'voice' or 'expression' was being cut off with my abilities or spiritual self.  That makes sense too, in light of what you have both said and what has gone on in the last four years.  With the nightgown, I suppose the feeling that came with it was 'mother.'  Thanks again to both of you - this has helped me a great deal.  :-)

You are very welcome. I also forgot to mention that I think the nightgown being such an important part of what you remember that it could represent that you feel or will feel soon feel vulnerable about something. I'm not getting much from the fact that you had a different nightgown on versus the one in your dream (except that maybe that was a tip that this experience is yet to come). But if you buy into the dream being some sort of foresight or warning, I see this as more of a relationship concern. Probably just be on guard as you may have someone coming into your life who may not be good for you. This someone could be a person who will bring you down and deplete your energy.
