Possible Psychic Attack During Intensely Vivid Dream

I've always had intense, colorful dreams. Even the occasional lucid one, though they are pretty scarce. I have followed the advice of keeping a journal about them, but I'm lazy and inconstant.

Last night I had one of those really vivid dreams, but there was something peculiar about it: I felt threatened by a force WITHIN the dream, which had started innocuously enough --I was Skyping with a friend of mine, and apparently there was a UFO or something outside my window (UFO dreams are somewhat common in my oneiric repertoire), and during the dream I mentioned how weird it was we were so enthralled in our conference I had not even bothered to witness the UFO.

Then unexpectedly the scene moves forward and I do witness the UFO, which is not the typical shape one would expect --it was more like a folded origami of indiscernible shape, white in color but with a faint bluish glow-- and then the dream progresses to the really disturbing part.

Before I know it I'm in a room with two 'men' which seem to be completely ordinary humans, except for one peculiar fact: They were in 'black and white' instead of full color (all my dreams are in color)like some secondary characters of Pleasantville!

The two figures were quickly moving towards me, saying something I don't remember in order to calm me down and assure me they were friendly, but I instinctively knew this was a lie. As it is often in my dreams, I tried to use my 'powers' (telekinesis and shit) to attack them, but these individuals were capable of performing what looked like 'magic passes' in order to deflect me.

I guess at one point I armed myself with bravado telling them they didn't scare me. One of them grabbed my right arm and started to twist it and turn it in ways that would have seriously injured, if not broken my physical arm, all while looking at me in the eyes, without saying anything --I don't think his stare was 'malignant' or evil, but his actions were certainly threatening and unwelcome.

This twisting of my 'dream arm' --and I guess I was semi-lucid-- didn't cause me any pain, and I told that to the entities, as a way to show them they were incapable of causing real harm to me. The black-and-white man didn't stop, and I woke up.

Wakefulness brought in a severe attack of anxiety. I felt like something or someone had tried to assault me. I turn on my night lamp and tried to calm my nerves, until finally normal exhaustion brought in an uneventful rest that lasted until the next morning.

I don't know what to make of it. I have sometimes toyed with the idea that my interest in the paranormal and my professional pursuits in the Fortean blogosphere have caused a flurry of unwanted attention on my persona, by forces which are not happy with my passion with such topics --likely a rationalization of why I'm having such a hard time surviving nowadays-- but now economic and labor mishaps have give in to something far more disquieting. Maybe.

In any case, is there anyone who could recommend me a few steps or preparations I could do in order to 'armor' myself from potential negative energies attempting to disrupt my dream journeys?

PS: In case you were wondering, the answer is NO. I did not find any bruises or marks in my arm, last time I checked...

Lots of people think so, including myself. It helps by keeping you vibrationally grounded and intact in the face of threats that might make you forget yourself. Many mediums and psychics wading into a potential spiritual firefight gird themselves with black tourmaline, black obsidian, or other black iron suffused crystals.
The medium Kim Russo often uses it as seen here in "The Haunting of Fairuza Balk. The interesting stuff with tourmaline starts at about the 15:00 mark. There is an incident with accidentally dropping the tourmaline that elicits a curious response from Russo:

Black and white might signify the conscious and subconscious mind & an attempt at communication between the two...

This is actually a very interesting dream but the description omits two important aspects, those being: whether you are conferencing with a male or a female and whether you are right or left-handed. Such details would be significant in order to assess the state (or lack) of 'equilibrium' within the dream.

This does not read like a psychic attack, but rather, as a deep disquiet about something within your own psyche. (However, there is also the rather less likely possibility that your lucidness may well have alerted you to an outside force whilst you were within this particular dreamscape).

That being said, if you feel the need for protection during sleep, it is always wise not to ignore such a feeling. I would second the use of Schorl. It may be efficiently utilised by placing in a shallow saucer of salted water directly beneath you, under your bed. The Schorl needs to be rinsed in running water each morning (then left to dry throughout the day) and the salt water discarded & renewed each evening. Please note: only a little water and a few grains of salt are required here...

There are other means of protection, including more direct and specific forms that one might practice. Just let me know if you would like me to explain further regarding more personal strategies.

P.S. I would consider two things: why your attention was averted from the 'UFO' initially and why it was diverted once you consciously began to register its form. I feel the details concerning the 'UFO' may be central to this particular dream experience...

Oh man, you're asking me for details on a dream which was already weird enough, yet at the same time fleeting ;)

The two individuals were male, seemingly in their 40s or so.

I'm right-handed, BUT I was actually born a left-paw --they 'corrected' me in school :(

Yeah, maybe it wasn't a nepharious event, but it did startle me. It made me realize that my attempts to attain more lucidity and venture into more interesting areas in my dream journeys needed more preparadeness out of me :-/

I don't remember how my attention was diverted out of the UFO once I took notice of it. UFOs in my dreams make me terribly nervous, so maybe that in itself was enough.

PS: Thanks for the tips :)

My friend had this happen to her and I remember her telling me she used to haunted by dreams of being punished for using the wrong hand. Now she can used both. Maybe your mind is saying it wants to use the left and hates the right. White and black can mean something that it helping too. The white represents the wisdom you seek, the black is the devourer, your negative self. Both are needed, both you must feed.

Not that I am competing with our wrestling guy here. I did however have an interesting dream involving blacks and whites the other night. Very vivid.

The interesting part (academically speaking) was that I was traveling with a Dutch girl to my hometown in California. As happens in dreams, I was suddenly just there, no flights, no nothing. We walked into my favourite bar, and an Asian waitress, a good old friend of mine was there wearing a black top. Really dark black. I hugged her, as one hugs an old friend in California. This asian girl was really white in terms of skin color. Whiter than any Nederlanders, and trust me, those people are pale. Of course, I have no idea who this girl is supposed to be in waking life. Just someone I am supposed to know really well, we were friends for a long time and whatnot.

We then talked about her plans to pick me up from the airport. Nevermind that I was already there. Dreams are like that.

That's messed up. It's like they were warning you. The bravado can only go so far. You have to control your imagination and use it to tear into them. Create a tulpa maybe. I once had a dream I summoned a demon and felt the presence in my room after I woke. I yelled at him to BE GONE IN THE NAME OF THE LORD and tossed some sand I have in a display near my bed at him. I guess the salt chased him off, but I think he is still out there.

Dreams don't always mean anything. But sometimes they mean more than they first appear to. Your attack dream seems more symbolic than malevolent. The Black-and-white men seem like shadows of mundane life - your projections of humdrum reality. The fact they deflected your attacks with ease indicates they *are* you. Just the 'you' not usually let out of your unconscious.

Maybe they're tax-time reminders?

The Universe is not only stranger than we imagine, it's stranger than we CAN imagine.

Then he would have dreamed of Cerberus.

It depends on the status of your taxes. If they owe you money, you could have dreams telling you that you are supposed to do something soon.

I have to report state sales taxes quarterly - the sort of task that creates avoidance behavior in me - and the week leading up to reporting deadline is always fraught with dreams that fall into the "fugue state" category. Vaguely uneasy or wandering around lost and sometimes punctuated with an abstract and ill-defined attack that can cause me to emit this strange moan that often wakes up my wife and scares the crap out of her.

Hey RPJ, I know I'm late to the party. I heard about this from JM. He told me he offered an interpretation but didn't say what. Let me throw my hat in the ring!

OK, so you just recently started offering to do art for people and I'm imagining you're getting a lot of commissions. My thinking is that the black and white men are a representation of your muses. Your art is literally twisting your arm to produce. Is it to continue to produce cool art pieces for individuals? Maybe. Or maybe this flurry of artistic application has fired up communication with your muses, and they are saying there is something else to produce and the time is now.

I think it's interesting they said they were friendly, but they were not hesitant to use force. And their vehicle is your vehicle - I mean people know you as a Fortean guy. Such mysteries are what propel us forward, inspire us.

I'm of such a mind to not separate spiritual from psychological - I mean, where does inspiration come from? What are the muses? I believe I have had very real dream visitations from consciousnesses not my own, but they are communicating through my psyche... In time, I was altered by their visitations in ways I can only see in abstraction and from how I have changed since their visit.

Be as water my friend.
