I know this site said not dreams, but this experience continued on after I woke from a dream, so I wanted to ask about it. I was asleep, dreaming of a temple of bugs, when at 6, my sister woke me up by accident by slamming the bedroom door. Obviously, since I don't usually wake up by 10, I tried to get back to sleep, but whenever I did, I had this strange uncomfortable pressure put on me, along with this crackling sound, like a voice threw a distortion machine, except high pitched. I couldn't move, and when I finally did manage after great effort, the pressure was immediately lifted.
This continued every time I tried to fall asleep, until I began seeing these weird things with snake eyes around me. I wasn't scared, just irritated, cause I needed to sleep.
Finally, when I thought I was falling asleep, I began dreaming about the temple of bugs again. Except this time, the bugs fell on my stomach and for some reason I was holding them. I woke up again to this enormous pressure. It was like someone had put a slab of marble over me, and a ball beneath the marble on my stomach, like someone was pressing my stomach so hard I could barely breathe. I began to see bugs in my inner eye, these large worm-like creatures, eating at the barrier I create every night. It began to scare me because the barrier usually keeps mediocre evil things out. The snake-eyed creatures were behind them, just watching.
I began to pray and try to resurrect my barrier, when I saw myself being surrounded by wolves in my inner eye, which kept the worms away. (Wolves are my animal totem, and for some reason often protects me in situations, when I pray for help... I don't know how they come, or from where, I'm just grateful they do!)
The same morning, after I finally got sleep and re-awoke, I felt physically worn out and disorientated, like I'd been running a marathon all night. I couldn't concentrate on my work, and my stomach and arm felt soar. I began to take my usual walk, but felt so tired; I had to walked slowly and take a few stops. After some time the tiredness faded, and I began to feel right again.
This leads me to my main questions. What happened? Why did it happen? How do I create a shield strong enough to keep those weird things out as well? Mt shield is very rudimentary; I channel my energy into my bedroom walls while picturing something happy, and say a short prayer. Is there a way to make it stronger? Please help.
