This has been bugging me for a while and I wanted someone to help me understand what is going on.
I've always had dreams of being attacked. Stabbed, shot, burned alive, chased, etc. Those dreams used to bother me a lot when I was younger, but in the past 3 years they had almost stopped.
In the past month, I've started seeing those dreams again more often. But this time they're different. In most of those dreams I see a zombie apocalypse, and I'm able to fight back and almost always win. I don't see fire anymore and I almost always don't end up getting hurt. But I'm still very scared and try to escape and avoid confronting anyone who is after me.
And I always see people that I don't know in real life.
Specifically, there's always a man who is full of burn scars all over his body and face. His face scares me and I can't stand looking at him in the eyes, but he's very kind and always helps me. He always comes and saves me, helps me escape, or treats my wounds. He's in love with me and every time he tries to tell me, he turns around and leaves, but comes back soon afterwards. Whenever he's around I feel safe but also really uncomfortable and try not to look at him. I can't stand looking at him both because his face disturbs me, and because whenever I look him in the eyes I feel his thoughts about me.
In my dream the night before, there was a zombie apocalypse again. Someone stabbed me in the heart but I didn't die, I just fainted. The stab felt real and burned. I woke up in a train shirtless, with bandages tied around my chest. There were a few more people in there, and they told me that the guy driving the train was the one who saved me. I walked through the train and opened the cab, to see that same burned man. I felt grateful but also disturbed. I sat on a chair next to his and thanked him. We talked for a while but I don't remember what we said. Then we almost crashed on another, abandoned train, but switched rails and turned to the right. The train stopped in the middle of nowhere in the woods. He said that was the safest place to be at the moment. I don't remember what happens after that.
A few things to keep in mind:
I've always been afraid of fire and burned faces. I've always had the ability to communicate with the dead. I'm a woman. I just turned 20, and I saw that dream on the night of my birthday.
Those dreams are always lucid and feel real.
I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me understand what that man represents, or even if he's an entity of some sort. And if you could help me interpret that dream, I'd be greatful. Thanks!
