    I’ve had two dreams that I still remember vividly about hell. The first one was I was in my home and there was a demon I guess disguised as my son and it was in my closet and I was trying to keep it closed and then some people who I assume were my friends were going to rescue someone from hell and he said a chant and all of a sudden blood and fire started opening from the bottom of the ocean and they asked me if I wanted to go with them but I said no because I was scared to see what was down there. The other dream was I was disguised a demon and Satan was being about to enter the hall and when he came I couldn’t see him for some reason and we were in like a crypt I guess and the demons realized I wasn’t one of them and they started chasing me and I was calling on Michael the archangel and he saved me.

    I assume my dream was of my own hell? The entire hue of the dream was a tan/brownish gary color. I was trapped in a huge hotel with other damned souls. I have this dream about once a week. Anyway, every room of the hotel was used differently to torture people. I also had to protect my children while I was there, but I think I was the only person that died, and my kids were just simulated beings. They would slip out of my sight and I would have to find them, as if me stressing out over something happening to them without me there was part of my torture. Also in this dream, there was a group of pedophiles that would walk around outside of the hotel. Their hands were penises and they would try to rape anyone, but their torture was that any time they were spotted by other damned souls, we had to beat them up and kill them over and over again. One other part of my torture was that I kept running in to someone and falling in love with them, and while they were in my arms, they just melted away…..it’s pretty messed up. I have had very vivid dreams since I was a child though, and I can control them most of the time.

  4. I had a dream last night about going to hell to save my brother and sister. I was taking my siblings to a bus stop and we waited with some other people. Then all of a sudden the sun was gone and so was the people. Headlights of a bus appeared and a wagon appeared from the mist and creepy trees. They went inside and began to go into a wall. Then all of a sudden i was able to see the wagon going down like a rollercoaster. Once i got my perspective i throw a yellow rock and followed these Aztec symbols that the wagon had left. I was in a tunnel with this hybrid,overweight, and tall person that was attractive to sound. I had to find 4 robs to open a portal. But when i had enter i didn’t get the 2 robs near the entrance so i went back and made a tap noise, a big hand began coming out of the holes in the walls. I dodge the hand multiple times and grabbed the 4 robs. The portal was open and i was in a store. A sweet and innocent lady was waiting near the portal dressed as a worker. She tells me ” u see these kittens, they are ur way out”. This horrific grin was on her face and in a deep voice she tell me, ” u must bit the heads off of each cat!”. I didn’t want to and began to cry. But i needed to save my siblings. The kittens were jumping from one rack to another. Once i caught a kitten i bit the head off. I was sick to my stomach. I must have bitten more than 20 kittens but the portal did not open. The lady began to laugh abd shout “u missed one!”. She began to rip her face off and was a a deform cat with human structures. She pounced on my and i woke up. I dont know what this dream is and im kinda nervous about it. But killing animals was a real torture…..

    • i had a dream that i was sent to hell but i wasnt suffering my family were there and lucifer was also their along with some other bad angles but they were actually pretty nice which is what i find really weird. Also in my dream their was an angel that was nice to me but would lure other victims in some train it looked like a subway and i think she would cut them and hell fire would break loose and kill them. i remember that there also was this door that if you were to travel to a certain point and reach 10% you would go in the door and go crazy. in my dream i also visited god and his angels and my family was there with me. they came with me from hell to see him actually we came to heaven to see a angel to help me out i forgot why. but she was a girl and i remember her complimenting me and then i was woken up
