London: Pop star Lady Gaga has a creepy recurring dream in which a phantom urges her to slash her wrists to save her family.
The `Poker Face` singer, who has learned from her mother that the bizarre nightmare is perhaps a secret society ritual, admits she uses the imagery from this and other dreams in her songs and videos, a magazine reported.
"This phantom... takes me into a room, and there`s a blonde girl with ropes tied to all four of her limbs and she`s got my shoes on from the Grammys... and the ropes are pulling her apart," Gaga said.
"I never see her get pulled apart but I just watch her whimper, and then the phantom says to me, `If you want me to stop hurting her and if you want your family to be OK, you will cut your wrist.` And I think he has his own, like, crazy wrist-cutting device," she added.
"And he has this honey... and he wants me to pour the honey into the wound, and then put cream over it and a gauze. I looked up the dream, and I couldn`t find anything about it anywhere. And my mother goes, `Isn`t that an Illuminati ritual`," Gaga said.
And when the 24-year-old star gets really stuck over the meaning of a dream, she turns to her pal, Indian spiritual advisor Deepak Chopra.
The singer asked him to help her interpret a dream in which she`s eating a human heart. "I was freaking out... I was like, `The devil`s trying to take me, Deepak. I`m a good girl!` And Deepak goes, `You are so very creative, my Gaga. You should make this into a video.` And I guess, in his own way, he spoke to me about learning to respect and honour my insanity. It`s part of who I am," she added.
