nighttime.

I was asleep/awake at 4 am having a night terror. Do other people have these? It's when you are awake, or at least you think you are, and something really scary is happening, like a man is standing over your bed ominously scattering silver on it, and you can't move or scream; it's like you're paralyzed. I unfroze after what seemed like half a minute, and there was no man there. No silver either. S____ was still asleep.

Later I dreamed I was at Buckingham Palace having coffee with the Queen. (She may have had tea; I can't remember.) We talked about Nobel prize winners (she wanted gossip), furniture, Kentucky vs. Virginia for horses, and her china. (The coffee cup felt surprisingly like hotel-grade porcelain, but I didn't want to offend her.) She looked really pretty, more like a young version of her sister, whose recent health problems I was preparing to inquire about when the Duke of Edinburgh came in and made us daiquiris. Who would have taken him for a rum man? Not I.

ME TOO!
I have these also to the extreme! Extreme Horror. No matter if it is a scary event or not because you awaken with your sense of reality gets all jacked up.
My mom gets them also but her's are reacurring and she has had the same one for decades.
I really believe that you get them only if you have a very spiritual/psychic nature.

Re: ME TOO!
Yes, they are the worst. Overwhelming, paralyzing terror. There must be a reason for them. But what does it mean to dream of the Queen?

Are you going to Oiwake on Saturday?

Re: ME TOO!
My Sybil Leek dream interpretation book said that to dream the queen means success with a new venture.
Sybil is always right!
What strikes me about the dream is the casualness of the events like it was a everyday thing tea with Lizzy.
But tea represent financial difficulties....

I had coffee!!!

She may have had tea. She has had financial difficulties lately, what with having to pay income tax and restore Windsor all by herself (even though she doesn't own it) and stuff.

Aha!
"Hypnogogic hallucinations and sleep paralysis may occur together."

"Different cultures throughout time have interpreted HSPs as different spirits or events.

Ancestral ghosts - Southeast Asians
Hag - Irish and Scottish
Cats - Chinese
Spectral foxes - Japanese
Djinn - Arabs
Guilt - Romans and the Egyptians
Witchcraft - Mexicans
Vampires - Europeans
Demons - Medieval Europe

You must send your dreams to gardengnome. She's analyzing them for a book.
