I had a dream that I still can remember every bit of. A dream that had a huge impact on me. I have tried for so long to understand it. So I thought I could post it here and hear your thoughts about it. I would appreciate it.

I didn’t believe him.
He told me he had the truth.
-What truth?
He paused and looked straight into my eyes. I wanted to look away, but I couldn’t.
Damn those eyes.
He took his hand and put it on my head, very gently.
Then he slowly moved the hand in front of my eyes. It went dark.
I couldn’t move.
-Can you see?, he asked me.
And I saw.

I stood on top of a mountain, looking out at the sea.
It was a magnificent sight. I wasn’t afraid, I felt powerful.
-Why am I here, on this mountain?
-Don’t you know?
-No, please tell me.
-You are the King of the sea.
I straightened my back, looked out at the sea once more, but now with immense determination.
-Yes, I am, I remember now.
I raised my arms up towards the sky, like I was going to embrace the world.
I then closed my eyes and turned my palms towards the sky.
All the water around me flew up in the air with an incredible force, causing a terrible noise.

I was now going down a sand/stone road in a car with my loved one.
It was sunny and it was a forest of some kind. We had a good time, chatting and laughing.
All of a sudden a man was beside the road, he was dark; the only thing I could see clearly was his eyes,
the rest was like a blur, but I could see that he was dressed all in dark.
Those eyes, they were piercing through my soul, I felt afraid and very uneasy.
-Did you see that man by the road?
-No honey, what man?
As I turned my head forward again I was now on a bicycle, going the opposite direction.
My wife was riding on my right side. I couldn’t grasp the situation.
All I could think of was that man and I didn’t want to see him again.
But there he was.
As I turned I could see the man appear behind me. He was raising his hand to throw something.
I was afraid that he would hit my wife, so i stopped the bike and shouted at him.
He interrupted the throw, and something landed by my feet. I looked at it and it was a glass candle holder;
just like the ones my wife used to create as a hobby. I raised my head and looked at the dark man,
but now I didn’t feel afraid anymore. His eyes was now kind, I could see tears slowly moving down his face.
I didn’t understand.

... then I woke up.

I get the chills just thinking about it, why does this dream affect me so?

Thank you for reading!

Sounds like a vivid dream! Dreams are usually disjointed and without meaning. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

it was! Yes, i know. But I have also heard that dreams are your subconscious speaking to you... but you are probably right. Either way, it left a deep scar in my mind.

dreams are your subconscious speaking to you

More like babbling nonsensically. ;)

Someone under a lot of stress may have bad dreams due to their stress, but I don't think that there is any coherent message, but rather imagery born of their anxiety. My ex used to consult a dream encyclopedia to interpret her dreams. If I knew then what I know now, I would have told her that her efforts closely resemble many other attempts of people to assign meaning to random and meaningless things.

Your dream sounded pretty cool, though!

It might be that I really want it to mean something, it is so symbolic and clear. Well, to use a encyclopedia sounds like a bit too much, even for me. :) As I understand it, only you can understand your dreams; if indeed there is something to understand. Maybe it just was a good short movie, which I took part in (and made) ...
