- The hell?

Did you, did you see that?

- Chris you're hallucinating.

We're here.

- Come on let's go.

- I'm coming,

I'm coming.

- Come on.

- Told you I'd go.

We're here.

- Locked.

- Dreams.

The subconscious of

our everyday thoughts,


and even our worst fears.

It's the unknown that scares us.

What we take from these

images is what shapes us.

Who we are,

what we really think,

without us even knowing.

The human psyche is astonishing.

The grandest ideas come

to life from dreams.


bad things come from dreams.


our worst fears fully realized.

Getting through a traumatic

event such as yourself,

suppressing is not good.

It's important to

identify the problem

then confront.


what do you see,

what do you feel?

Tell me about your dreams.

- I woke up

in a dream last night.

In my childhood backyard,

I was with my fiance Trisha.

There was this huge

tree from my childhood.

I explained how,

this one time my

little brother Brandon

climbed all the way to the top.

I had to go up there

and get him down.

I was terrified.

It felt like I,

like I climbed forever

to finally get him.

Then later in the dream we

were at a convenience store.

That's when I see it again.

A hooded shadow figure.

I see it in my dreams and

sometimes even when I'm awake.

In the middle of the night,

I can't move.

As hard as I fight,

it feels like there's,

it feels like there's

something watching me.

So I lay there.


- Why can't you move?

- I don't know,

it's like something

is holding me down,

something is holding,

pressing down on my chest.

It's like a weighted

down feeling.

- In the world there's

positive and negative energies.

What we put out,

what kind of energy we put out

is what we're going

to experience.

If you put out bad energy

or negative energy,

that's what you're

going to experience.

You're gonna bring

in the negativity.

Now if you put out

positive energy,

that will help you fight

through the bad energy,

the negative energy.

You gotta learn

how to be able to

pull out that positive energy

and build from that.

- How?

- Well this trip to your old

house is a great first step.

You know it's been

a long, long road

on this phase of your recovery.

Are you ready?

- I think I'm ready.

I think I'm ready.

- Excellent Chris.

You know I'm very proud of you.

Remember it's just a house.

The real confrontation

is within you,

within you.

You're in control.

- I know,

I wanna take control of my past

and not let it control me.

I'm in control.

I'm in control.

That's it.

- Are you excited?

- Yeah,

I'm ready.

I think I'm ready.

- You think you're ready?

- Yeah.

- Oh baby now,

you know we're gonna be alright.

- Yeah.

- And you know I

have your back right.

- I know.

- And we're gonna be okay.

- I know.

- Cut it out,

we gotta finish packing.

- I know, I know.

Is there anything

else we need inside?

- Ah yeah I think there's

two more boxes upstairs.

- Okay,

okay I'll get em.

- Can you bring me some water?

- Yeah I got yah.

- So baby are you excited

about seeing your brother Dave?

- Yeah actually I am.

You know it'll give us

an opportunity to talk,

you know.

Our relationship

hasn't been the best,

but it gives us a chance

to talk at an adult level.

Last time I saw him he

was 12, 13 years old.

He's a grown man now.

I'm looking forward to that so.

- That's cool.

- Yeah, so.

I mean he's living at

the house right now.

He's actually about to sell it.

- What?

He's been staying at that house?

- I mean yeah,

he's just,

you know maintaining it,

he maintains the house.

- Yeah but you don't

think that's kinda creepy?

- I mean not really.

He has to maintain the house.

I mean he's gonna sell

it now so you know.

- Yeah but.

- Yeah I mean that's,

the timing is actually

good because you know,

give us a chance to be there

before he does sell the house

so actually works so we

can do this right now.

- I guess.

- Yeah.

- What's up bro?

- Youngster, what's up man.

- Good to see you man,

what's been going on.

- Yeah good to see you.

- Aw man man,

- Yeah,

- Getting ready for selling.

Probably gonna end up

moving to Chicago man.

- Okay.

- Yeah yeah.

- Nothing wrong with that.

- So you got your

lady in the back.

- Yeah that's my wife Trish.

I'll introduce you in a minute.

What's up with you man,

how you been?

- Aw man you know,

just the norm man.

Just making things happen.

- Okay.

- Like I said I've been

focused on this project

with the house.

- Yeah yeah.

Looks good man,

- Ya'll come on in

enjoy yourself now,

I'm gonna walk around back,

got a few people back there.

- Okay cool.

- We'll have a little fun.

- I'll probably

go inside myself,

- Okay.

- Alright.

- Yeah yeah.

Okay make yourself at home man.

- Like mix it up man,

know what I'm saying.

Hey that's the reason why

I'm not playing no more

in the major leagues right now,

you know what I'm saying.

That's the reason why.

You know I had this dream

and it felt like I was there.

I couldn't wake up,

I was screaming.

Scream to the top of my

lungs and the crazy thing is,

my family was right

in the other room.

That sh*t just f***ed

me up and I just,

I kept seeing these different
