Just tired of seeing Christian crap (sorry, bad choice of words...) EVERYWHERE, where as if it were any other religion being boasted, they'd get put down or frowned upon.

honestly real christians are not catholic!

catholics are those that go to the church and listen to a preacher!

I had the same problem only my dreams were about the end of the world! Before going to sleep, try telling your brain that you're going to have a good dream, and i have a trick on how to control your dreams; set your alarm clock earlier than you usually wake up, and then wake up and go back to sleep. You will most likely be able to control your dreams!

in the dream state, your mind is powerful.. release your mind to fight the zombies off... as you go to sleep, imagine special armed guards surrounding your house form the inside and out.. they can not be hurt, but they kill anything with a single blow of their weapons. shields are all around you, and nothing can come close to you or your house or family.
defeat all that come.. you can do this, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!

Where does that dream happen! Please! It's not a nightmare it's a prior warning from "god".

It's not a joke. i have deeper knowledge in reality of what big pharmaceutical industry is hiding to the public!

Just remember the dream as best as you can and describe it to me Please it's very important! you have no idea!

Grab some courage and face the dream again but this time, analyse the dream! watch for streets name, locations, dates, hour! etc... the more data the better!

and no, movies and video games do not influence dreams! it's a preconcived idea people throw out there! if you watch too much movies you will dream that your watching a movie! that's all.

in that case it's very different! your very young and Deeply connected to the energy of the Comos! Your a master of the spiritual realm. Don't let Misters and Mistress tell you other wise!

Maybe you've been playing the zombie game too often dude so try to do something else which is more fun cause the brain plays the cassette of what you're going through ! Or try lucid dreaming , you can control your dream that way ^_^

Remind yourself of reality - there are no such things as zombies - even though they look so realistic on shows like The Walking Dead. That's great makeup, prosthetics, pyrotechnics, and film direction in action. The end of the world stuff may be coming from religious people who can't wait for the world to end so they can go eat ice cream - for infinity - in heaven. It may also be this ridiculous Mayan calendar thing that has scared a lot of people - did you ever look at the calendar? It's circular - if the carved it on a bigger stump it would have covered more time - and because a calendar runs out - that's not the end of the world - it means you need a new calendar. Every year calendars are sold as presents before and around Christmas for the next year. Sometimes a reality check will help your unconscious brain - the one active in sleep - from giving you bad dreams.

Amen to the stuff about the calender. 12/21/12 isn't the end of the world, it's just the day they switch their calendar.
Report as
There's a reason why this Mayan calendar scare has had such effect: money. Media or other hearsay sources scares magical thinkers into a frenzy - which then in turn - causes people to buy every thing on the subject. After the Millennium scare and after 9/11 - it wasn't computer books (8 bit computers were all going to flip back to zero and completely disrupt society), or the Holy Koran that was selling out in bookstores across America, it was anything about Nostradamus and his predictive quatrains. This was a massive influx of revenue for publishers - I saw the numbers with my own eyes. A country that endorses magical thinking is a country that has lost critical thinking and skepticism: gullibility becomes their moniker - and media companies make a fortune on fanning the flames of fear.

If I eat (esp. sugars RIGHT before I go to bed, even 30 minutes before, I get nightmares. If I get them, I normally try to wake up, then flip over to another position or side. That helps most of the time.

Not to be cynical, but deal with it. You'll desensitize yourself to the fear. I've had nightmares for years, horrific, disturbing, and emotionally scarring nightmares on anyone else's scale. To me they're just another dream. Sometimes one will really f*** with me, but if you live with it and let your brain realize that there is nothing to fear, you will likely just become desensitized to the horror. If you simply can't, just try willing yourself to do something in a dream. Will yourself to fight off the infection, will yourself to simply kill the zombies, or will it all to go away. It worked for me, IDK if it'll help you, but I hope it does.

It's very real. Zombies are not a joke! The CDC is damn serious about this!

Look up synthia, BP oil spill disaster, the Folding@home project, strandford university doing the R&D for Craig Venter!

The massive gulf cover up on all the death so far about Zombie like behaviour, the most recent case is in china in which a man devor a child next to him and people films this and do nothing!

Since the first reported case of Rudy Eugene in miami, there as been 45 CASES so far all around the globe! And yet the media make it look like nothing is going on!

Keep your body alkaline and stay away from soy oil, fluoride and artifical sugars at all cost! The Gmo corn is used for the HGT (Horizontal Gene transfer). which is the main carrier of the Infectious prion for parasiting the brain of hosts! see mosanto corn oil and soy oil!

I do this thing before I go to bed where I tap my fingers slowly, first the thumb, then pointer, middle, index, and pinky, then flatten my palm. It's soothing, you should try it. Also, you should drink some nice, hot tea before you go to sleep(:

this is a late response, but i sleep with my TV on it helps a lot. when the TV is playing it clears my mind and as i get tired i turn the volume all the way off and the the lights from the TV screen is kinda like a night light lol but its great when you can't fall asleep. Please try this method i think it will work great! if you don't have a TV then i also like to fall asleep with the stereo on sometimes. its just when you watch TV or listen to music you are concentrating on the things that are being played not your thoughts! Hope this HELPED! :)

im 13 too i did have dreams like that where it was the same for like a week but when i stoped worrying about it i kinda stopped believing.Also you can put in terms "ZOMBIES" aren't real. canobolism is though but thats just releigion those people believe eating certain body parts will give them power and strength.but thats very rare and they wouldn't come up to you and be like "im gonna eat your face." its like when people sacrifice themself forr their god they believe in.so dont worry about it! OK?

i like to think about 5 good things like having a mansion or swimming in a chocolate pool. they don't have to be real things. just 5 or more good things. then you wont have a bad dream.or you can shake yourself awake! just because you're having a bad dream doesn't mean you can't control your body! or, try to talk! it wakes me up when i try to talk during a dream!
