A few months ago (before the last lunar eclipse) I started having these really vivid nightmares. Needless to say, they scared me to death. If I hadn't woken up in my own bed, I think I would have believed they were real. This isn't the first time I've had lucid dreams, I have them quite often. These were different though. It was a like a movie playing in my head and each night since the first, it was like my mind was playing a sequel. It started off quite simply. I was watching a close friend do something in their room. I wasn't part of the dream, only watching. And then I'd wake up. The next night, it was the same thing, with a slight variation; a knock at the window, a few taps at the door, etc. Eventually, it got to the point where I was seeing this close friend dead. Murdered, to be exact.
When I say I'm a lucid dreamer, I mean, I have dreams that are vivid, clear, and utterly realistic. The majority are either memories or have come true. The night of the lunar eclipse, I'd had the worst one yet. It was the same dream I'd been having throughout the month, except it was like watching sequels of a movie back to back to back. It was all the dreams all over again. I finally saw the murderer's face.
After that night, I've never had the nightmare again; however, I'm still afraid. I don't understand what happened.
If anyone could shed some light on the situation, I would be grateful. I'm just hoping this isn't a precognition or premonition or anything.
Another thing I've noticed in the last year or so, is that I'm really, really, very good at reading people. I can just look at a person and know their emotions and what they're like. People say first impressions aren't everything, but my first impressions are almost 99.9% correct. Also, the more I get to know a person, and the closer we become, I find them easier to read. Like I know everything about them without them ever mentioning it, including their emotions. Their thoughts, however, are still a mystery. I'm beginning to believe that I am some sort of empath. If you know anything about this, please let me know.
