The Dream Survival

  2. 2. <ul><li>The Dream Survival Guide </li></ul>If you think you are under attack from a dream – what should you do to survive? Prof Premuda, renowned dream expert, of the Altman institute offers the world’s first dream survival guide. “ You must never, and I mean never, underestimate the danger you are in when a rogue nightmare strikes. I am not talking about a bad dream – I am talking about nightmares that are actually attacking you. If you need more help please contact me at: . Being prepared is the best defence!” Press SPACE to advance through the slides>>

  4. 4. The 6 signs of a rogue nightmare <ul><li>The nightmare comes back on a regular basis </li></ul><ul><li>You are the subject being attacked in the nightmare </li></ul><ul><li>There is a “physical” attacker after you </li></ul><ul><li>You are often violently attacked in the nightmare – or worse killed in it </li></ul><ul><li>You feel great anxiety after the nightmare and cannot return to sleep </li></ul><ul><li>The very fear of the nightmare returning keeps you from sleeping </li></ul>
  5. 5. Acknowledge the problem <ul><li>The single biggest mistake people make when being attacked by a “Rogue Nightmare” is to deny the attack. Often people will go for months trying to convince themselves, if not others that the dream is “not so bad” or “I have no bad dreams” </li></ul><ul><li>This is common because many people actually “auto erase” the dream. Their minds subconscience acts to protect them by erasing the dream from the waking memory. Thus minimizing the trauma. But the fact is – the dream is still in there – waiting and lurking. </li></ul><ul><li>If you do not even think you are being attacked you are in the greatest danger of all. Look for physical signs that are not erased by the mind: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Growing tiredness even after a “long” nights sleep </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Very bad breath in the waking hours – this is no joke but a sign of adrenaline release during the dreams </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A dead limb (usually right arm) when you awaken </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Night cramps when you awake – the body tensing from the fear </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Any of the above signs mean you should be paying closer attention to your dreams </li></ul><ul><li>If you know, or even suspect you have been having a “rogue nightmare” then there are actions you can take to defend yourself from a worsening attack. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Know your enemy <ul><li>It is essential that if you are having a “Rogue Nightmare” you understand what you are up against. Rogue nightmares are very dangerous on both a psychological and physical level. But they are not simply self generated images and mental processes. Research in our institute (The Altman Institute) has discovered that the nightmare is often Exogenous (coming from an outside source) </li></ul><ul><li>The strange thing about “Rogue Nightmares” is their ability to jump from host to host – like a virus. Several studies reported in both the BMJ and The Lancet, have discussed this type of phenomenon. If you are suffering from a “Rogue Nightmare” then you must consider yourself as a host (think of it like being a person possessed) </li></ul><ul><li>In every “Rogue Nightmare” there is always a protagonist known as “The Slayer”. This may come in the form of an object – such as breaking glass, a sword, a gun – but most often it is a “physical” person. And almost certainly – you will never have met that person in your life before. This is the most dangerous form of the affliction. </li></ul><ul><li>The key is that once you know it is like a “Virus” you can treat the problem </li></ul>
  7. 7. A Famous Case Study <ul><li>One of the most famous case studies of recent years has been the case of “Sara Martinez” – (note the name and image have been changed to protect the identity of the patient). </li></ul><ul><li>On November 16 th 2006 S.M. was invaded by what is now known to be a “Rogue Nightmare”. The intensity of the dreams increased and consisted of her running through corridors, being chased by an unknown assailant. Eventually in the dream she was cornered and killed repeatedly by stabbing. She suffered both mental and physical pain, losing sleep and feeling the effects of physical illness. </li></ul><ul><li>She presented to me some weeks later and we immediately identified the syndrome and started her upon our patented “Sleep therapy course” developed at The Altman Institute. </li></ul><ul><li>Within a few weeks we had identified the attacker within the dream ( as usual a real person she had never met before ) – in this case Dr Kane D’Ebano – a renowned psychologist w orkin g in Rome </li></ul>
  8. 8. Counter Attack <ul><li>In order to defend yourself from such a nightmare you must become aware that you are dreaming – whilst dreaming. This is where we introduced Sara to the concept of Lucid dreaming. </li></ul><ul><li>Lucid Dreaming involves a technique where you become conscious within the dream and thus can control its actions and direction. You move from being a passive participant in the dream to an active participant. </li></ul><ul><li>As with most patients, Sara needed some help. </li></ul><ul><li>Step 1: When the dream starts, do not ignore it. Realize it is “The Dream” </li></ul><ul><li>Step 2: Make a physical “Anchor” – find an object which you can reach out and hold within the dream. This connects the subconscious to the conscious </li></ul><ul><li>Step 3: This is the most difficult part, for human nature is to turn away from the attacker – but instead you must “Turn and look at them” – “Turn and look” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If this is difficult, an assistant can make a night long vigil, and when they see you enter REM sleep they can give continuing suggestion by speaking to you saying – “Turn and look at them” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Step 4: Identify your attacker. This is crucial that you identify physically the assailant. From this point you can then begin to search for the physical person that is “projecting” upon your nightmares. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Who is the attacker <ul><li>Although you may not “Know” the attacker – it is often someone that you subconsciously interact with in your daily environment Often it could be a bank clerk, or the guy at the gas station, a friends brother you have seen in a picture – but beware! Occasionally it really is someone you have never met before – as was the case with Sara. </li></ul><ul><li>Your role is to identify “Why” this person has invaded your dreams and what is the “waking world” significance to the intrusion. Sometimes it is a “warning” of events that are happening around you, without your knowledge – an unfaithful partner, someone with an illness, a fault in a car. </li></ul><ul><li>The key is that the attacker will often be a symbol of the impending doom, and by identifying the attacker you can link them to the events – a colleague of your partner (is he or she a threat to your marriage) – A gas pump attendant (Has he subconsciously noticed a fault in your car) </li></ul><ul><li>Whatever the case, and whoever the person – making the link and eliminating the real world problem will often eliminate the nightmare. </li></ul><ul><li>If this is not the case – your problems run deeper – BEWARE! </li></ul>
  10. 10. Darker sources <ul><li>More frequently, as was the case with Sara, we are seeing that the attacker has a much deeper and more sinister meaning in the dream. Although we do not agree, many researchers believe “Rogue nightmares” of this second classification have a much darker paranormal edge – more akin to a form of possession With patients of this type, we will often refer them to clerical sources to ascertain if demonic possession may be the underlying cause. In these cases, short of exorcism we do offer some advice. </li></ul><ul><li>There are several famous cases of “Viral” type possession based nightmares. In such incidences, once again Lucid dreaming is a key to survival – however the treatment is much more radical. </li></ul><ul><li>You must learn to Attack the dream. This can be with weapons, with your fists, with any object you can find to attack the assailant in the dream. Ideally you will decapitate the aggressor, thus metaphorically diffusing the dream. </li></ul><ul><li>As a last resort when it is the dream itself that is attacking you – you can commit the ultimate attack and commit suicide within the dream whilst Lucid dreaming. Although high risk it is often the only way to force the dream to pass to the next person. </li></ul><ul><li>We do not recommend this in the vicinity of loved ones. </li></ul>
