Do you remember your dreams?

We can't always be on the computer- real life has a way of dragging you away, after all. That's why this forum is here- to talk all about it.

Do you remember your dreams?

Post by Juneberry » 7 months ago

Dreams can be a great place to get ideas for your creative side, but they also can teach us a lot about ourselves, I think. Do you keep track of your dreams? Do you remember them to begin with when you wake up? I know I only really remember the nightmares I have... And as of recently, I'm using them to shape a brand new story to break my own barriers. Trying to find the meaning that was held by them, though, is a much more difficult story.

when I was a kid I used to have terrible nightmares, bad history when I was little.
but my grandfather took it upon himself to teach me about lucid dreaming.
I remember my dreams because I'm always concious of them.
mostly though I use that time and the control of the dream to think about stuff and try out new ideas.
my most common place to go?
a ship orbiting a gas planet around another star, it's nice to have somewhere remote to think lol.
also great for working on stuff I'm writing since I can play out ideas like directing a play or movie.

That makes me really want to learn lucid dreaming- plus, with control of the nightmares, they won't be as scary anymore.
Seriously though, that's a great image to imagine right there~

Well there's a trick to it. Look at your hands willfully during a dream, it's like putting in a dev mode cheat. After that it's anything you can imagine becomes tangible.

First I'd need help recognizing i'm in a dream and telling me to look at them. xD

Depends.

It's normally foggy and I never remember the beginning, but sometimes I remember pieces of it. I think most cases, I never remember someone's face from a dream.

I remember a lot of my dreams and most of them are very pleasant. I can sense when a dream is turning bad and then force it to change so that it doesn't become a nightmare. Sometimes I have prophetic type dreams and the deja vu feeling can be really creepy.

I dream in color. Do you?

I've had slight prophetic dreams once or twice in my life as well- that deja vu certainly is creepy, especially depending on when the dream was.
And I do dream in color. A lot of colors.

I have a lot of weird ones that usually are easily remembered but scare me. Some are just plain painful (I felt pain in the dream). Dreams can be peculiar.

I usually don’t remember mine. Sometimes I do though. Used to write them down and try to figure out the meanings.
