Lately, I've been having a lot of really strange dreams, and I was just thinking whether my dreams were weird compared to the dreams of others.

What kind of dreams do you have? Are they happy, sad, horrifying, or something else entirely? Post your dreams, thoughts, or anything else you would like.


Recently I had a dream that I was sent to Auschwitz. While cleaning some metal cogs in a storage house, I was able to cut off the chains around my hands and feet and escape. I escaped and fled home only to be told by my friends and family to go back. My grandmother drove me back to Auschwitz, and I was soon gassed for escaping.






I also looked to see if there was an existing thread, but I didn't find a recent one.

A lot of my dreams seem to involve either being chained by the ankles/wrists in a room or flying (either having wings or being a bird itself). It's likely reflecting my desire to be free of anything limiting, and the stronger ones involve both at once. There have been a few where my limbs, teeth, or eyeballs are eroding into sand.

My weirdest dream, that didn't have meaning, was encountering Jesse and James (back when Pokemon was starting a craze in Elementary School) in the a grocery store as a kid. I won't go into the details (it was a childhood dream, so I cannot remember much), but it was just bizarre. :blink:

Honestly, I haven't been recalling my dreams lately. Would like to increase my ability to remember them.

The secret of remembering the your dreams is to keep a notebook right by your bed. As soon as you wake up, write down everything you can remember about the dream, even if it isn't much. Over time, you will start being able to remember your dreams in vivid detail without having to write them down.

I remember that the culture the person lives in also affects their ability. In some tribes that make dream interpretation a focus, the people can usually recall their dreams or nightmares in more detail than ones that don't (especially when that culture makes you rush and focus on other things).

I'll remember to try the notebook method.

Pretty sure that one encompasses 'dreams'. But oh well.

I hate having dreams where I do some pretty awful things. And then I think to myself, "Why the hell was my brain thinking that... I'd never do something like that."

According to people like Freud (who I won't mention my opinions of distaste at), our subconscious thinks otherwise. I've had a few where I did acts I wouldn't consider doing in reality (such as take a life).

A mod can move this if it is appropriate, but I thought it would be better as a separate topic. :unsure:

I also had a dream this afternoon that I but my cousin's tongue off.... "Why the hell was my brain thinking that... I'd never do something like that." was my response exactly.

The reason you don't remember is that you seem to never wake up during REM sleep. You only remember your dreams if you wake up during the middle of one.

I started keeping a dream diary a while ago (which I stopped filling out every morning, but trying to get back in the habit), mostly because I am interested in having better dream recall, since I consider dreams to be a way to see what my subconscious is thinking about, and because I hear it can help increase the frequency of lucid dreams (by helping you recognise common elements to your dreams, so that you might see them for what they are while dreaming).

It's been an interesting thing to do. The first few recordings are pretty sketchy, but your (at least my) dream recall improved tremendously inside a week. Sometimes I can even remember the dream before the one I was having when I woke up (I often have 2 dreams at the end apparently if I can get a full nights sleep, which gives you a much longer ending dream cycle).

It's a fair bet that I would probably never let anyone read them, mostly because they are a window into exactly what my mind thinks about, and having someone else read them would be a huge violation for me. Some things are better as secrets, or at least not written out quite so planely (granted, I know what I think, so I know what to look for and how to interpret them).

I don't know if my dreams would be considered normal or not. They have no consistency in terms of 1st or 3rd person perspective, and on occasion will even switch between the two inside the same dream, though 1st person is definitely the majority of the time. I also find locations in my dreams to be incredibly malleable, either as an odd amalgamation of places that I am familiar with, sometimes interspersed with fictional elements, or that my location literally changes around me. I am also not always myself in my dreams, on occasion assuming the identity of other people.

There are however some elements that are incredibly consistent between my dreams. For example, just about every dream I have had since I started the journal a week ago has had a body of water in it, and they normally involve swimming at some point. Now, that one doesn't surprise me, and I'm not even sure other people would pick out the significance of that just reading through, but it was a neat insight for me since I have the privaledge of knowing exactly why a lake or pond or ocean appears in almost all of my dreams. It's neat to see that this is on my mind, even when I go days without thinking about it consciously. It might even be useful as a trigger for lucid dreaming some day since I am almost never around lakes during 75% of the year.

I am happy to say that I don't get the teeth falling out dream that I hear is one of the very common ones. I have had a grand total of one dream I know of where I was missing teeth, and I know why I had it (it was related to a movie I had recently seen). That specific dream would probably keep me from going back to sleep.


And @ the biting the tongue thing. Sometimes your dreams can really surprise you. I had one in particular where some part of my brain manifested the ability to be incredibly hostile, violent and ruthless (someone who I was about to try and help grabbed me and I created a person with a huge sword who cut them up into nearly 20 pieces. top to bottom from each side of the head, then horizontally 6 times). It's not the only manifestation I have ever seen of my violent inner self, but its one of the more vivid for me. It could also be taken as being self protecting, since in the particular circumstances of that dream it was about to become a nightmare, and the sudden manifestation prevented that (as well as making a big enough impact to wake me up almost immediately after, which is probably why I remember it so well).

Randox, as long as the movie wasn't called 'Teeth' I think you are ok.

It was the movie Hangover that did it actually.

The only thing about a dream journal is it can be almost a pain to do. My recall time is probably in excess of 30 minutes now, and the last dream I recorded at that length was about 4 entirely different locations with a fairly loose overall plot and character cast (I also might have switched genders halfway through. I can't remember who I was at the beginning of the dream). I normally spend up to a minute sorting through the dream mentally, then I fire out some bullet points to help me through, then I write as fast as I can from beginning to end. The whole process probably lasts at least 5 minutes, and its not terribly detailed. But it is enough that I can remember mental pictures from them, some of them are incredibly detailed. Normally static though (I can look around in my minds eye, but not move, and no motion capture). I rarely remember emotions, so I have to remember to record any meaningful feelings, and also what I was thinking when the dream ended.

The what I was thinking can be very important. I can't remember having a dream ever finish before moving on to the next dream or waking up, though to my credit, I am getting closer all the time. I have noticed certain themes my mind struggles with more than others. Most of it depends on if my dream is trying to replicate something I have done before, or simulate something I haven't done (it took several dreams before I could get flying, even under near lucid conditions. My mind finally found a way though, without any lucidity). When trying to simulate, the dreams have a tendency to essentially pause. They will try to continue a few times, and if nothing happens, they just end. Other times they simply cut out right before my brain would have to imagine doing something I have never done before. Replication is a lot easier, though I have a tendency to mess it up. For example, my dreams don't normally get the sensation of swimming right (its more akin to being able to levitate than floating most of the time, and I seem to struggle with the concept wetness. Water tends to feel like air, and I don't know why that happens).

I think dreams are amazing though. You mind has essentially hijacked all the parts of your brain normally used to process your senses, and re-purposes them for simulation. And the ability to cope with real time dream generation is amazing. I know my dreams aren't planned out since I once fell asleep during family guy, and one of my dreams overlaped with one of the episodes on the dvd. The result was that everything said in the dream was from the TV rather than self generated (you sense of hearing is the most prone to activation while your still asleep), so the episode provided all the dialogue, while my brain had to, in real time, make up an entirely bogus situation and try to mesh the two together into something that made sense (for the life of me I can't remember the plot, other than it taking place inside an aircraft carrier, but I do remember that when I woke up, I felt that the dream had been mostly coherent and actually had made sense). It's just incredible amounts of processing power and creativity. The dreams seem to make themselves, and respond flawlessly to external stimuli that make their way into the dream (again, normally this is through your ears).

What's a good way to learn to lucid dream, anyways? I always wanted to, but sitting still for half an hour never works because I get itchy, and I find clearin my mind nearly impossible at night (when I think the msot, usually).


I've had some really freaky dreams.

For example, when I was obssessed with Runescape as a youngster I had a dream in which I was in a game of Castle Wars and King Kong was attacking. So I hid in the spawn room.
I've also had superhero dreams, like one in which I teamed up with the Teen Titans to do soemthing awesome (I forgot what) on a beach.
And one time in which I was in a massive war scenario and oeprating steampunkish cannons on top of a tower with my girlfriend.
And I once had a dream in which I was fighting an army on a bridge. But then it started sucking because I kept missing with my billhook, or not doing any damage.
I freaking love that type of dream, though. Adventuring in my sleep is great.


However, I've had one really disturbing dream that I doubt I will ever forget.
'Contains some very dark material made by my subconscious


Also, gay dreams/ dreams in which you cheat on your significant other suck. Just saying.

The only difference between Hitler and the man next door who comes home and beats his kids every day is circumstance. The intent is the same-- to harm others.

I never dream of flying. EVER. :mellow:

But like 2 days ago, I had 2 dreams back-to-back of me pretty much being in Assassins's Creed. Like the clothes and acrobatics and cool jumping/climbing and EVERYTHING. <3: And I was in third-person, so I saw everything.

Come to think of it, ALL my dreams are third-person. Is that just normal?

That's why I made it. :thumbup:

I usually have my dreams in first person until I die. Once I die, I move to third person.

I find it extremely interesting that I can completely forget a dream and be going about my day, only to be reminded of a small snippet of said dream because I looked at something.

An old example of this was on a day I was visiting my old middle school. I glanced at the doors to the gym and suddenly remembered that they were part of my dream; how they were in it, I didn't know. I just knew for sure they were in my dream.

I never die in my dreams. I always wake up at the time of death, but that hasn't happened in years. I don't think I have even had a proper nightmare in years. I've had dreams I didn't like, and a couple that made me unfomtorable enough that I didn't want to go back to sleep, but even in the few dreams where I get attacked, I wouldn't call them nightmares.

When I get attacked in my dreams, I can pretty much always either easily defend myself, or the dream changes so I am not in danger (like creating a person with a giant sword to hack up the threat). I almost never feel fear or despair in my dreams. On the whole, I have a very positive sub-concious.

Actually, its probably because most of my dreams are desire based (which tend to be the most fun, but not the most interesting). Most of the remaining ones are I don't know what. Some random fantasy story I guess. Those tend to be interesting for their otherworldly story lines and they produce the best locations (and also the hardest to remember landscapes, because they are more creative than the ones I get in desire dreams). My dreams aren't all sunshine and smiles, bad things happen in I'd say all of my dreams, but they aren't usually upsetting.

There's a dream thread every once in a while, and they're always interesting.

On my part, I don't remember dreaming at all, except those few times which seem to kind of be premonitions since things happen in dreams then a few weeks later, exact same thing irl and I have no idea how I do that. I know it happens because I have the huge deja vu feeling which reminds me of the dream.
