This is sort of based off of another thread. ( hope Im not copying) So what weird dreams have you people had? I have had WAY too many to put here put here. Lets just say some involved dancing marshmallows, weird shrek folk, punk rock hobbits, and chairs leading to a pit of fire to name a few.
Oh god, Dreams. This is like my most favorite subject and my least.
I suffer from having very extended and detailed dreams every single night. It's difficult because sometimes they take over my day so I have to remember not to think about them too much.
But some of mine have included my Betta's of course, there was one time I was being a surrogate mother for a rabbit and had her babies for her, I dream lots about old ruins and flying, I fly in nearly all my dreams. I dream about gender bending as well, carnivals that let you ride backwards, about my art crits and just leaving my artwork around, about different worlds entirely, and there is usually lots of water in my dreams as well as some odd dinosaur or monster things.
I dream about being in the wilderness as a wolf, sometimes and about my betta dying for some reason (possibly because SOMEONE'S brother wants to kill it...) and many other things I usually forget about really quickly...
Awesome! Although a werid thing about my lucid dreaming is that I can't change the 'plot line' of the dream. I can add in things or slightly change it, but I can't change the tone of it. Like I could have a dream about my betta fish and then I could add in that it was raning cats, but it'll come back to the fish. It's so strange and really horriable with it comes to nightmares...*Shivers*
Sometimes I can control my dreams when their good, which is why so many involve betta fish and LOTR, but when Im having a nightmare... Im way to scared to think about control! Also I heard that in nightmares if you look in a mirror something clicks in your brain and you can control it...?
I've never had a mirror (or one that I don't remember) in any of my dreams, so I'm not sure. I've always had an awareness of when I'm in a dream. I think there may have been times though when I'm unable to recognize that it is a dream.
My nightmares are quite scary, I'll try to add in things that'll lighten the mood, but then those things get destroyed or killed and it'll break my heart 'cause often they'll be my cats or my fish. Thankfully I don't get them often.
Yeah lucid dreaming isn't being aware that you are in a dream, it's literally being aware and being able to control every aspect in it. It's very much like day dreaming, which I do all the time anyway.
But idk, I had some people tell me that they could lucid dream and they just said they were aware they were dreaming and I was just like *insert facepalm here* and had to explain what Lucid dreaming actually was and not what they thought it was.
Hmm never heard of the mirror thing, I'll have to pay attention a little bit more haha
I must be lucky, I haven't had a nightmare in years! I wonder if it's because I'm such a happy person...well most of the time haha I'm sure that has nothing to do with it and what's on the outside :)
The only nightmarish things that I have had recently were those little dreams you drop off to at first and you are running or something and you trip or fall and it like jolts you awake? Yeah I had one where I was driving at night and this, what looked like a teenage girl, was running out of the woods and ran straight into my car. Yeah that woke me up, scared me big time. But that's the only one I've had in a few years as well.
