What is the origin of the word nightmare?
Interestingly, the mare in nightmare has nothing to do with a female horse. Instead, it comes from Old English maere 'goblin, incubus.' The word was nigt-mare in 1300, and it referred to an evil female spirit afflicting sleepers with a feeling of suffocation. By 1350, it was nytmare and in 1440 it was nyghte mare. Mare 'goblin' is a cognate with Middle Dutch mare, maer 'incubus,' Old High German mara, Middle High German mar, mare (dialectical modern German Mahr 'nightmlare'), and Old Icelandic mara 'incubus.' Mare comes from the Proto-Germanic word *maron. Nightmare was used to describe 'a bad dream caused by an incubus' in the 16th century, and by 1829 it was used to describe 'a bad dream' in general.

Myths Nightmares that forebode or warn of impending future catastrophe is more fictional than factual. It must be realized that 'subconscious' is far deeper, wider, subtler, pervasive, responsive and expressive than the 'conscious' state of the mind. Nightmares can be useful guides to pin point and treat past trauma. Time is also effective in preventing nightmares Usually nightmares cease by themselves as disturbing and often-suppressed emotions get the required ventilation or expression in the individual's dream state.

Everybody has nightmares all the time. When you go to sleep, your brain is sorting out every thing you have learnt in that day. In the same time your brain is trying to worn you, which is your nightmare. Nightmares try to tell you which is safe or not. Your stresses, fears, would also be a ni…ghtmare. Once you have figgured out what your dream was about very closley and follow what your brain is trying to tell you, the brain will try and move onto another subject. your dreams only go for 4 secondes. When you wake up in the morning you only remeber one dream that is most important. As an example i had a dream of going to the shops but then relizing my younger brother is lost. I didnt mention anything to my parents and walked off into the croud alone. A pirate took me away and was about to chop off my head. That dream was telling me not to walk off alone and that my fears are looosing my younger brother and i hate pirates. I hope this helped and is explained very clearly. ( Full Answer )
Although nightmares can be very frightening when we are having them, they are actually de-activating unexpressed fears. The nightmare, by acting out the fear, switches off the emotionally arousing expectation in our autonomic nervous system. The level of anxiety being expressed that turns into a nig…htmare can be so strong that it alerts the conscious mind, even wake us up, then we are able to recall it. A: It might be because of something we have experienced that was frightening, or it might be because of something on the telly! Don't worry, bad dreams or not real!!! ( Full Answer )

You can have nightmares as a result of fears that you have while awake, which influence your dreams.
My view is that nightmares are meant to help you in terms of dealing with the terror in yourself so you can become clear. It's one thing to say "I had a nightmare and I was upset by it." and "Thank god it was only a dream!". It's another thing to say "Okay, I had this nightmare and I've been chased …by a man in a dark mask with a chainsaw.", to be able to turn around and say "Who is this man?", to look back in your life and say, "Who is this man? Is this a man that I know? Is this a man I don't know? Who is it?", so that you can stop running from them. That's the purpose of nightmares, in order to use them as intuitive prompts so that you're not running away from yourself all the time and living a life that's driven by fear..... ( Full Answer )

These are particularly bad or frightening dreams that may be the result of the brain trying to make sense of many of its (maybe unconnected) observations and sounds it recorded during the day. Rarely, certain foods may send unpleasant signals during normal sleep. Dreams are perfectly normal and… most folk have three or four episodes of dreaming each night. Co-evidenced by Rapid Eye Movement, REM ; which if interrupted to a waking state, will result in a dream story being recalled. ( Full Answer )
For most dreamers, it is not possible to rouse oneself from a nightmare without prior preparation. If one is having nightly, or repetitive nightmares, one can form an intention before going to sleep. This could be a strong resolve to awaken when the troubling dream occurs, alerting the conscious min…d to maintain a certain level of control through the sleep cycle. But in most cases we are not expecting the nightmare and so do not have the opportunity to prepare. In that case, the conscious mind is not able to take control of the dream from the subconscious mind, and the dream must run out to its natural conclusion. **Update from a different person** Stop when it's about to get scarier in the dream, close your eyes really tightly and imagine your are going to wake up, it works for me.

While bad dreams are certainly spoken of (and interpreted) in the Bible, the word "nightmare" does not appear in the King James, NKJ, NIV or Standard translation.
the earliest origins of it are believed to be human imitations of natural soundsbut there is also a belief that the word existed even before people & indeed from the very beginning itself
Nightmare Before Christmas original poem It was late one fall in Halloweenland, and the air had quite a chill. Against the moon a skeleton sat, alone upon a hill. He was tall and thin with a bat bow tie; Jack Skellington was his name. He was tired and bored in Halloweenland "I'm sick of the sca…ring, the terror, the fright. I'm tired of being something that goes bump in the night. I'm bored with leering my horrible glances, And my feet hurt from dancing those skeleton dances. I don't like graveyards, and I need something new. There must be more to life than just yelling, 'Boo!'" Then out from a grave, with a curl and a twist, Came a whimpering, whining, spectral mist. It was a little ghost dog, with a faint little bark, And a jack-o'-lantern nose that glowed in the dark. It was Jack's dog, Zero, the best friend he had, But Jack hardly noticed, which made Zero sad. All that night and through the next day, Jack wandered and walked. He was filled with dismay. Then deep in the forest, just before night, Jack came upon an amazing sight. Not twenty feet from the spot where he stood Were three massive doorways carved in wood. He stood before them, completely in awe, His gaze transfixed by one special door. Entranced and excited, with a slight sense of worry, Jack opened the door to a white, windy flurry. Jack didn't know it, but he'd fallen down In the middle of a place called Christmas Town! Immersed in the light, Jack was no longer haunted. He had finally found the feeling he wanted. And so that his friends wouldn't think him a liar, He took the present filled stockings that hung by the fire. He took candy and toys that were stacked on the shelves And a picture of Santa with all of his elves. He took lights and ornaments and the star from the tree, And from the Christmas Town sign, he took the big letter C. He picked up everything that sparkled or glowed. He even picked up a handful of snow. He grabbed it all, and without being seen, He took it all back to Halloween. Back in Halloween a group of Jack's peers Stared in amazement at his Christmas souvenires. For this wondrous vision none were prepared. Most were excited, though a few were quite scared! For the next few days, while it lightninged and thundered, Jack sat alone and obsessively wondered. "Why is it they get to spread laughter and cheer While we stalk the graveyards, spreading panic and fear? Well, I could be Santa, and I could spread cheer! Why does he get to do it year after year?" Outraged by injustice, Jack thought and he thought. Then he got an idea. "Yes. . .yes. . .why not!" In Christmas Town, Santa was making some toys When through the din he heard a soft noise. He answered the door, and to his surprise, He saw weird little creatures in strange disguise. They were altogether ugly and rather petite. As they opened their sacks, they yelled, "Trick or treat!" Then a confused Santa was shoved into a sack And taken to Halloween to see mastermind Jack. In Halloween everyone gathered once more, For they'd never seen a Santa before And as they cautiously gazed at this strange old man, Jack related to Santa his masterful plan: "My dear Mr. Claus, I think it's a crime That you've got to be Santa all of the time! But now I will give presents, and I will spread cheer. We're changing places I'm Santa this year. It is I who will say Merry Christmas to you! So you may lie in my coffin, creak doors, and yell, 'Boo!' And please, Mr. Claus, don't think ill of my plan. For I'll do the best Santa job that I can." And though Jack and his friends thought they'd do a good job, Their idea of Christmas was still quite macabre. They were packed up and ready on Christmas Eve day When Jack hitched his reindeer to his sleek coffin sleigh, But on Christmas Eve as they were about to begin, A Halloween fog slowly rolled in. Jack said, "We can't leave; this fog's just too thick. There will be no Christmas, and I can't be St. Nick." Then a small glowing light pierced through the fog. What could it be?. . .It was Zero, Jack's dog! Jack said, "Zero, with your nose so bright, Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?" And to be so needed was Zero's great dream, So he joyously flew to the head of the team. And as the skeletal sleigh started its ghostly flight, Jack cackled, "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!" 'Twas the nightmare before Christmas, and all though the house, Not a creature was peaceful, not even a mouse. The stockings all hung by the chimney with care, When opened that morning would cause quite a scare! The children, all nestled so snug in their beds, Would have nightmares of monsters and skeleton heads. The moon that hung over the new-fallen snow Cast an eerie pall over the city below, And Santa Claus's laughter now sounded like groans, And the jingling bells like chattering bones. And what to their wondering eyes should appear, But a coffin sleigh with skeleton deer. And a skeletal driver so ugly and sick They knew in a moment, this can't be St. Nick! From house to house, with a true sense of joy, Jack happily issued each present and toy. From rooftop to rooftop he jumped and he skipped, Leaving presents that seemed to be straight from a crypt! Unaware that the world was in panic and fear, Jack merrily spread his own brand of cheer. He visited the house of Susie and Dave; They got a Gumby and Pokey from the grave. Then on to the home of little Jane Neeman; She got a baby doll possessed by a demon. A monstrous train with tentacle tracks, A ghoulish puppet wielding an ax, A man eating plant disguised as a wreath, And a vampire teddy bear with very sharp teeth. There were screams of terror, but Jack didn't hear it, He was much too involved with his own Christmas spirit! Jack finally looked down from his dark, starry frights And saw the commotion, the noise, and the light. "Why, they're celebrating, it looks like such fun! They're thanking me for the good job that I've done." But what he thought were fireworks meant as goodwill Were bullets and missiles intended to kill. Then amidst the barrage of artillery fire, Jack urged Zero to go higher and higher. And away they all flew like the storm of a thistle, Until they were hit by a well guided missile. And as they fell on the cemetery, way out of sight, Was heard, "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night." Jack pulled himself up on a large stone cross, And from there he reviewed his incredible loss. "I thought I could be Santa, I had such belief" Jack was confused and filled with great grief. Not knowing where to turn, he looked toward the sky, Then he slumped on the grave and he started to cry. And as Zero and Jack lay crumpled on the ground, They suddenly heard a familiar sound. "My dear Jack," said Santa, "I applaud your intent. I know wreaking such havoc was not what you meant. And so you are sad and feeling quite blue, But taking over Christmas was the wrong thing to do. I hope you realize Halloween's the right place for you. There's a lot more, Jack, that I'd like to say, But now I must hurry, for it's almost Christmas day." Then he jumped in his sleigh, and with a wink of an eye, He said, "Merry Christmas," and he bid them good bye. Back home, Jack was sad, but then, like a dream, Santa brought Christmas to the land of Halloween. ( Full Answer )

Well, if you didn't know the brain stays on thought your sleep. If you've ever opened someones eyelid while there were sleeping there eye was problem moving.

But of course, nothing happened. So the reason you got nightmares is because you were thinking of something recently or something from the past. ( Full Answer )
The book doesn't necessarily say. It says that Ponyboy had a nightmare the night of his parents' funeral and nights after that, but it simply says he always forgets what it's about after he wakes up.
Everyone can have a nightmare because everyone dreams! I have learned from my study at the School of Metaphysics in the U.S., that nightmares are a common experience for many people-this state of oppression or feeling of suffocation that happens in the dream state, which is usually accompanied b…y a feeling of intense anxiety, fear, or horror. My Dream Class instructor at the College of Metaphysics, Dr. Barbara Condron has been researching and interpreting dreams with the SOM since 1975. In her book Dreamer's Dictionary she says nightmares are "repeated messages from the subconscious mind that have gone unheeded." The good news is that once the dreamer receives and understands the dream, the nightmares cease. Dream interpretation is what led me to the SOM's course of study. I used to have nightmares often as a child. Now that I've been a student for almost 4 years, I rarely have nightmares. Nightmares, and in fact all dreams, are symbolic messages from the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind can be looked at like a good friend who is telling you information that is pertinent for you to understand. When it is a nightmare, then is it like your best friend yelling at you to bring your attention to the life lessons you are avoiding. The last nightmare I had was about a car wreck. Upon waking up, I judged the dream as being a "bad" dream. I went to a teacher, worried, and upon interpreting it I realized the message wasn't at all negative like I had thought. SOM teaches dream interpretation through the Universal Language of Mind, the language of the Subconscious mind. This language teaches dream interpretation symbolically, as opposed to literally, and works with the "form and function" of the symbols. A car's function is to move us forward. Since the car was out of control, this reflected how I was directing myself. The dream was telling me I felt out of control, and that I needed to take better care of myself by being self-directed and not relying on other people to direct me. The message came as a nightmare at that time because I had known about the need to be more self-directed but had yet listened to myself and applied self-direction. This experience helped remind me of how thankful I am of knowing the symbolic meaning of dreams. I've heard stories of people doing extreme things prompted by nightmares they interpreted literally, such as: a woman who didn't drive for 16 years after having a car-wreck in her dream, or a woman kicking her husband out of their room after having a dream he cheated on her. Dreams have a deeper meaning than the face value. There is much freedom and relief that can come through aligning with this truth. ( Full Answer )
Robert Englund has played Freddy in every Nightmare on Elm Street movie (as well as the TV show), except for the new remake that is coming out soon (2010). In the new remake, Freddy is played by Jackie Earle Haley. Interestingly enough, Jackie Earle Haley auditioned for the role of Heather's boy…friend Glen in the original Nightmare on Elm Street (1984). Haley was a friend of Johnny Depp's (who ended up playing Glen), and he and Depp came in together to audition for the role. ( Full Answer )
The original Nightmare on Elm Street was released in late 1984. Its U.S. release date was November 16, 1984.
I think they just happen if your talking about a dream . I also think it could be becaues your mind is playing tricks on you or your just really really scared of something .
You can draw on your religious tradition. For example, a Christian might focus on the verse "Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world." Meaning, Christ is greater than whatever I fear in the dream. A Muslim might focus on the confession, "Great is Allah." Focus on that truth before f…alling asleep, and instruct yourself to remember that confession when the nightmare occurs. It is very possible to do this, and it does not matter if you are not particularly religious. But the phrase or confession you choose does need to be meaningful to you. ( Full Answer )

Can you play the original red dead redemption campaign on the red dead redemption undead nightmare disc?
No. Undead Nightmare standalone disc is the Undead Nightmare, Legends and Killers and Liars and Cheats packs (possibly Outlaws to the End too) + Multiplayer. There's a possibility your multiplayer lvl from RDR carries over when using the UN disc. I do not know as i have RDR and the UN download for… Xbox but the UN disc for PS3 ( Full Answer )
yes . Yes only if you purchased the download DLC foe Undead Nightmare and if you purchased the disc you do not need the Red Dead Redemption Game Disc to Play the Undead Nightmare Disc
If I beat the Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare disc will I be able to play as zombie John Marston in the single player of the original game?
No because Undead Nightmare is essentially a whole different game. You can only play as his son Jack at the end of the regular Red Dead Redemption.
There is no specific word in the English language for a person who only has nightmares with no good dreams.

The modern English word has is the 3rd person singular present tense of the verb to have . It is a purely Germanic word with no connection to Latin or French. The verb comes from Middle English haven , to have; this derives from Old English habban , to have (compare Old Frisian habba , Goth…ic haba , German haben ). The Old English second person singular present hÃ¦fs t, third person singular present hÃ¦fÃ° became M.E. hast, hath . Hath gradually developed into the modern word has . ( Full Answer )

A mare is a female horse. Metaphorically, having a bad dream is compared to being on a disobedient horse that carries you where it wants to go, rather than where you want to go. And of course, sleep is usually done at night. Hence night + mare = nightmare.
