Amy Culberg, the well-known writer and humorist with a diehard following, (myself among them) has a powerful teaching story to tell about how she banished a repeating nightmare that had plagued and exhausted her for years.
I love this story because it broadcasts the very empowering truth that there are ways to kick those hideous nightmares to the curb – and in weeks, not months.
Nightmares from posttraumatic stress are nothing like regular, garden-variety, scary dreams – they don’t shift or change, degrade or fade over time. Nope, they stay the same, and remain as vivid and contemporaneous every miserable time.
Hello. At the guidance of my therapist, I’ve purchased and downloaded Belleruth’s Healing Trauma and I’m on day 9. I’ve been having unsettling dreams the last three consecutive nights - not nightmares, but not pleasant either, all of a very similar nature. Is this a normal part of the process that I should just be patient with and continue? Or should I do something else? Any suggestions?
