I’ve had two dreams in the past week where I was a werewolf. This is not a usual dream theme for me. In both dreams, the shapeshifting happened in the night during sleeping and I had memory of the events that happened during the process and time. Very odd. The dictionary defintion of a Werewolf is:
A person transformed into a wolf in form and appetite, either temporarily or permanently, whether by supernatural influences, by witchcraft, or voluntarily; a lycanthrope.
The lycanthropy is also used as a psychological disorder where the person displays animal like behaveour as a result of an advanced psychosis.
