This happened when I was 13. I was staying at my uncle's (my dad's brother) place since it was near the school I went to. One night I had this terrible dream, a dream that is so weird at first I wasn't fully understand what it meant. In this dream I was on a bridge, a hanging bridge. I don't recall or remember why I was there it's just suddenly, I was there!
When I looked back I saw a beautiful woman wearing a long white gown with long black hair, it was so vivid that I can actually see her beauty. Where she was standing looks like a paradise, I can even hear the water from the stream and heard the birds chirping. The place was so beautiful. That beautiful woman was calling my name and telling me not to go to the other side of the bridge since there's no way of going back. She kept on telling me that on the other side is the bad place and there's a witch who haunts and kill whomever goes there.
When I looked on the other side of the bridge, I saw an old woman wearing torn clothing and looks untidy, the place was dark because of smoke coming from a factory, I saw some people there wore the same clothing. They don't bother to look on my direction, maybe they don't see me or they just ignore me. The old lady was telling me not to believe the beautiful woman on the other side since she was the witch not her. She even asked me if I can spare her some food if I have. I was really confused and didn't know where to go.
The beautiful woman kept on talking and the old woman just stares at me. Then finally the old woman spoke she said "let your heart choose for you my child." That's the time I decided to walk towards the old woman and the beautiful woman was shouting back at me. When I reached the place where the old woman was, she changed and became a soft light but as a figure, that confuses me but I felt peaceful and loved.
What happened to the other side gave me the chills. The place went on fire and the beautiful lady became a serpent with 3 heads. She was cursing and growling, sounded very angry then disappeared. The light spoke, it says "look behind you my child" then I looked back, the place I once saw was no longer there instead it became like paradise. So beautiful! The last thing I remembered before I woke up was that light told me "good thing you follow what your heart chose or there's no going back."
Then I woke up sweating and breathing very fast. I was so tired and went to the kitchen to get a glass of water. I told some of my friends about that dream, some said it meant nothing just a scary and weird dream but one of my friends told me that it was "bangungot"
Bangungot is a tagalog word describing a dream which you cannot move or yell as if someone or something's pinning on you, you can't breath. They said that bangungot is a fat black man, hairy and quite heavy. He will come to you and give you bad dreams and sit on your chest. That causes you not to breath and feels like someone's holding you down. They said, to be able to fight this you don't need to move your entire body just a wiggle of your toe will be good enough to wake you up. If any of you had an interpretation on this dream, please share it with me.
