Every dream I can remember has been slightly disturbing (running away, being locked up etc) Is there any way to have nice dreams?

If your recall isn't very good, you will be more likely to remember this type of dream.

they say these monsters are only parts of your ego that you've repressed, and kinda avenging themselves for not being embraced. they say you should meet them with love and embrace them and they turn out to be non threating parts of your own self you've deemed unworthy. if you embrace them you'll move towards completeness. says Stephen Leberge.

Plus i kinda been reading the Tibetan book of the dead and have this theory that these monsters are only the wrathful appearance of the peaceful Deity they represent whom are all compassionate and are only testing you, constantly prodding you to move toward liberation trying to tell you something important and KNOW THIS!

Usually I have fun with it, normally some sort of magic or something interesting, if it is a recurring dream monster then I will usually treat it with love which typically makes it go away. If I have some that just won't be defeated by the above methods I just "will" its atoms apart and it ceases to exist.

There is one exception to the above where I had a dream nemesis and literally it could counter anything I tried to do to it. I eventually got super frustrated and ended up "sealing" it away like they describe in fantasy series.

Oh, the last monster dream I had, Aragorn came in and killed him for me.

I don't consider these kinds of dreams nightmares - I consider them adventures

Same. turn3 I think it all depends on how you look at things, you could look at a monster as, "Oh, no! A monster, it's going to kill me! RUN!" Or you could look at it as an adventure and have some fun with it, knowing that you're going to defeat it. Usually any dreams I have with baddies, (not necessarily "monsters", bad people usually) have some sort of storyline that I just go along with so it plays out like an action movie. It's fun using various powers to defeat them, once you know that you know that they can't hurt you for real, it makes all the difference in the world, you just have to keep telling yourself that. It may help to recruit some DC's to assist you, though. If there's a large amount of enemies I'll usually team up with DC's and we fight them together, it's great fun. ebil Good luck!

It's great fun, I was about to get chased by a bear in my LD last night, so instead, I thrust out the palms of my hands in it's direction, sent huuuge waves of energy at it and yelled: "STOP!"

Hehe, it whined and moaned for a while before lying down and going to sleep..

Twas fun.

I haven't really destroyed monsters conciously in my dreams, but here's a few suggestions:
-If you're good at shapeshifting, turn into a ferocious animal of your choice. Best on the smaller monsters, but if they're big you can just make yourself bigger!
-Run towards it if you're running away. Show you are bold. It just might turn it into something harmless.
-Two words: energy blasts.
-If all else fails, command it to disappear!
