I woke up with my heart racing this morning.
I had an awful dream that I had gone home to visit my parents and that everybody in my former cong came bye to say hi. In my dream, all the men had on suits and all the women had on floral dresses. Red, blue, pink, green, aqua, all these different floral designs and matching shoes too. They were everywhere. They had decided to get me to go out in service with them.
I was handed a bookbag, some magazines and a dress to put on. I franically looked around for other apostates for support. I saw only one, Veni, and she jokingly told me not to blow her cover because she was going to do a "little witnessing" to the house holders about what was really going on in "Jehovah's organization".
In my dream, I wound up hiding in a closet with a 3 or 4 cats. And they were all talking rather loudly. I was afraid that the JWs would overhear them talking to me and would know where to find me. The last thing I remember, before I woke up, was promising the cats that if they would be quiet, when everybody left, I would get them all a kitty treat.
The last time I went out in service was 1978. I became inactive that year. What I find surprising is that after all these years, I can still and do have nightmares about the JWs and sometimes about Armageddon.
How about you? Do you still dream of JWs past or present? What about Armageddon? Ever wake up from scary apocalyptic dreams? How long have you been out of the org? Got any ideas on what might be causing my nightmares or any way to prevent them?
Any advice would be appreciated. Any dreams you wish to share might be good reading......
