As you rest your weary head,
Do not face the dark with dread.
For in the dark is where you’ll find
True harmony within your mind.
For long while, I honestly didn’t have the best relationship with the night and my dreams. I would go to sleep with fear in my heart. Then I would wake with tears in my eyes and stifled screams in my throat. I was plagued by night terrors. It came to a point where I was blocking out my dreams just to get a good night’s rest. It got to a point where I couldn’t remember anything from my dreams, even if I wanted to.
I eventually realized that all those nightmares were just ME crying out for balance. As I felt myself becoming stronger and more grounded throughout my healing process, I started opening myself up to my dreams again.
Now my dreams are back. I may not remember all of them, but I remember enough. Some are dull and gray. Some are bright and vivid. Some are crystal clear. Some I can barely make sense of. But more importantly: None of them scare me anymore.
