Dreams Related To Trauma

Past trauma

Nightmares related to past trauma in wake life are fairly common in the dream realm and generally reflect anxiety, fear or anger when the dreamer is confronted with some aspect of the past. For instance, you may have found yourself in a similar environment that made something in your brain click and suddenly you were reliving the past. Other possible cases involve attempts to cope with previous trauma through therapy, counseling or self-care. The complex symptoms you experienced may even be related to post-traumatic stress disorder. It is important to take note of your situation when you awaken to assure yourself that nothing scary is actually happening to you. After that, seeking help from someone you trust should help with some of the emotions brought forth from the dream vision. However, these visions are unlikely to go away quickly.
