Hey Modestjadi :) I have pretty awful nightmares, but mine are due to flashbacks of my car accident, so I know I have to work on overcoming this trauma so that the nightmares go away. Are they always about the same thing? And also, are you on any medication that could cause nightmares? Alot of them do.

I always had nightmares when I was small, then they stopped after a while, but I never could sleep with the light closed. I didnĀ“t really had nightmares, I just had the impression that is someone in the room. Only since I am here, in a new house, I did overcome this fear completely.

I have frequent nightmares. The solution that works best for me is to just embrace them. I know that it sounds funny, but although it is unpleasant I am still a fan of horror. To wake up in the morning feeling like I just survived a horror film has just become more reason to laugh. I share them with my spouse and tell here, "wow, that was a doozy". I'm sure it's not a solution that will work for everyone, but with enough mindful practice we each have the power to create a safe and happy path. Best of luck everyone. Much Love..

don't worry about nightmares. nightmares are actually an adaptation to help you cope with stress. your brain sends you through stressful situations in your sleep so that when it comes time to handle stress in real life you've already been through it and know how to handle it
