    Woke up but still aware of dream

    I've been wondering for years about this. I had a dream when I was about 9 years old and it was so scary and real I could never forget. I was in a room and there were creatures around yelling and laughing gibberish stuff. Then there was a man with a really big head yelling as loud as he could at me. It was all gibberish so nothing he said was real words but I knew what he was telling me somehow.
    He was telling me to touch a block with my hand and then touch another one on the other side of the room without letting go of the first one. I couldn't do that because they were too far apart so I was getting afraid When he started yelling louder. When I woke up(i was really awake entirely, not still dreaming) the unbearably loud noise that was happening and the amount of color and the creatures and man were still there. I could hear everything from the dream and no other noise from the world around me because it was so loud(even when my mom was trying to talk to me). When I opened my eyes, I looked at the walls and I could still see everything in the dream perfectly. When I closed my eyes it was still there. It would not go away so I was even more agitated. I went to my parents (I walked down the hall and none of the sounds or visuals stopped) and climbed into their bed, cried and screamed until eventually I passed out because I was so tired. I woke up the next morning feeling okay but every once in a while for YEARS NOW, if I hear a noise(anything, even an air conditioner going off one time) I can suddenly hear the man yelling and it's still so vivid and really loud at times. I haven't had the problem of triggering the noise in about 2 years now but I was just wondering why this all happened because it was the scariest time of my life and I was only maybe 8 or 9 so it sort of? traumatised me. If any one has any answers, please let me know. Thank you to anyone who was patient enough to read my rant even if you can't help me.
