Weird dreams

  1. Sep 2, 2004 #1
    A month or so ago, yet I remember it clearly, I had a funny dream. I was walking in a public place, when I look down and see that my shoes are gone. I say in a loud voice for all to hear, "Alright! Who's the walkin' corpse that took my shoes!?!?"

    Pretty weird huh? You? jimmy?

    Well I get starnge dreams that lead everywhere but sometimes I see myself falling and then suddenly I feel like I am and have to catch myself, which I can't because I am on a bed, so my legs and arms raise sharp and then I relax in a minor cold sweat.

    Not the best one to have.

    strange that even though I don't remember the dream,I can feel it's effect. I've wondered what dreams really mean. or should I say what is there purpose!

    To sort out the subconcious mind is what I have always believed.

    Lucid dreaming is fun, but tough to do

    I've dreamed of a few places that I've never been before but then end up visiting. That's pretty odd. My dreams are always pretty intense. I can feel pain, smell and taste things.

    Ah, I love to dream. Speaking of which, I think I'll go do that now.

    do you think there could be more to it than that? I mean we spend a lot of 'time' in our dream world. What is frustrating is that I don't seem to know what my own subconscious is up to.
    and if dreams are purely to sort out the subconscious then why do I sometimes remember them in great detail! Wich would sagest it's my conscious mind.

    No, same here. I dreamed and then remembered being asked to go with some people and the same day, it happened. :surprised :biggrin:

    Hum....... well it was either that or your mind pouring out everything that has happened in that day before sleep and anything relatde to it. This is how most of mine are related.

    I wonder how come it's posibill to dream of something happening before it actually happens!

    I think it is more of a hope:

    I dreamt and hoped that I would have the girl I wanted. 10 months later, I have the girl I wanted;

    I dreamt and hoped that I would go on holiday with some friends. The same day it was organised and agreed.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a dream were you see a place you've never been, or an actual event! And when you go there or experience it ,it is almost exactly as you dreamed.

    Oh right. I see. I don't know. I will think about it.

    Anyone else having had recurring nightmares?
    Here's one I had quite often in the age 7-11 :
    The garden outside my home had turned into a morass/mud field.
    Since this was a nightmare, I always stepped into it and sunk down to the bottom.
    On my way down, pale, dead faces floated past me (it was rather scary).
    When I reached the bottom, I found myself in a dimly lit corridor (please don't try to find the logic in that :wink:).
    I went along, shivering, because I knew what awaited me:
    A closed door, with a plaque on which stood the word "Office".
    I knew I had to go inside..

    And behind a large desk, turning around as I went in, sat a large human skeleton with a black top hat on his grinning skull!!

    That's when I woke up sweating and shivering with fright..

    My last nightmare was when I was about 12 and it was about my school being run by vampires that couldn't get in, and a train would come in our playground and we would have to run inside for ages. I was strange.

    I had one which went on for years after Id snuck into a movie I wasn't aloud to see. I think it stoped when I was around 11 or 12! :blushing: It was a twilit zone movie about a bear like 'man' that started ripping a plain apart from the outside and only one person saw it and no one would believe him! amazing I can recall it frame for frame even now!?
    That bear hunted me for years!

    I hate dreaming about real problems and not being able to wake up.

    For example, a while ago, I dreamed I had kicked the covers off and left the windows open and then the temperature dropped during the night. In my dream, I pulled the covers back on, and then the weather got worse. A cold wind was blasting through the open windows, so I was still freezing. Then, I dreamed I closed the windows, and it got colder still. It seemed to take forever before I really woke up, closed the windows, and pulled the covers back on.

    I think the weirdest thing that happened to me, though, was dreaming I had lost my arm. I woke up and realized my arm was asleep. And then I couldn't find it!

    Turned out I had it running under the pillow and had caught my hand in the headboard, which is why my arm had fallen asleep. But it caused a few seconds panic to wake up from a dream like that and then having to search around the bed to find my arm.
