I was sleeping and Ive just woken up from the dream. I dreamt that there was this room in the house that I grew up in that was dark. This darkness had a light quenching quality. It was inky and brown like old photographs. Light from lightbulbs, flashlights, the hallway, all dimmed in this room. It doesn't matter how bright the flashlight or lamp was it would be practically useless in the room.
And the wierd thing was that I was the only one who noticed. And once I left the room the lights all behaved normally. This isn't the first time I've had this dream. I've had it several times before. Once in the same room and other times in other environments. I start the dream feeling alright. I'm normally not afraid of the dark. Once I notice that the light doesn't 'light' then I start panicking. I always try to find more light sources but the extra light just doesn't help and the longer I try to resist the more the light fades. I end up bailing from the situation or waking up.
What does it mean? I woke up and turned on the light right away. My heart was pounding so hard!
Usually dreams about lights not working means you can't see the light. There's a problem/situation in your life that you don't understand and don't have the perspective to understand.
The dream, shows ur fear. This may involve a painful memory, guilt, or some repressed thoughts. and behavior.. Overall , it shows ur acute stress, low confidence, will over powered, depression , frustration, insecurity and fear of failure, try to be happy
