The Pig Monster

(1)I was in my brothers bedroom when i heard a clicking sound. I knew something bad was about to happen. So i ran out of the room.

The clicking sound went faster when i was running out of the room.
I ran into the living room and put my back against the door. The clicking stopped and I heard something coming out of the computer.
It was a Monster that had a pigs head and a mans body. it had crop circles and it did not have a long snout. It was brown and hairy. It was so ugly i keep having images of it in my mind when im in bed. it creeped my out. I saw its face poking out of the door then the dream ended.

(2)I was in my living room when these toys came alive.
They were singing. Then heard the door of the living room open
Out of the black came the pig monster Guess what i did next I hugged it! Then other monsters came through the door.
Then the dream ended.

Hugging or fleeing?
by: Hawkmoon

It starts as a classic chase dream. Danger in dreams usually is announced in advance, and so you hear the clicking sound. Was it similar to click of computer mouse? You try to block the door, yet monster enters through computer. In another dream a play of toys singing is abruptly stopped ba monster coming out of dark, yet now you hugg it. Since computer and playing has somehow appeared in both dreams i would conclude that your subconscious has a fear of something michevious could hurt you from computer that you use often i guess. It doesn't to be a specific person on the internet, maybe just that your subconscious fears your privacy could be compromised nad that you will not be able to keep computer out of making influence in your life.
