I know millions of people ask this all the time and we are not responsible for what we dream but…What if…You are dreaming something sexual, and you half wake up but still continue to dwell on the dream as if the dream were still going and then wake up to realize you don’t want to think about that? Likewise, what if you wake up or half wake up and You FULLY WANT to go back into the dream so you continue doing what you were doing? Isn’t that an act of the will? And furthermore, for MEN, What if you have a physical nocturnal emission? What if you truly don’t want to do that “sin” while your awake…and you know that when you get to sleep you’re not responsible for it? What then?
These are questions I have struggled with for a long time, and the answers have always been different. Some people tell me I need to confess them but when I do some of my friends tell me I should not confess my dreams. They tell me that if I am scrupulous, I am heading down a path that could destroy me! I"M JUST TRYING to remain HOLY especially before receiving our Lord! Am I CRAZY or something? A little help please.
