I find dreams so facinating and sometimes I wake up and all I want to do is talk about the weird/scary dream or experience I just had! I was thinking it might be a cool idea for a thread so people can have an outlet to share their experiences with anything related to dreaming and sleep phenomenas. Eg:
- Strange dreams
- Scary dreams
- Happy dreams
- Recurring dreams
- Sleep paralysis
@May_ Sleep paralysis hasn't happened to me in a while either. The one that ALWAYS seems to get me is what @N1ghtW1ng was talking about - the false awakenings where I've gone to fall in the dream and wake up feeling like I had actually fallen. Makes me short of breath just thinking about it happening
I had THE WEIRDEST deja vu yesterday and I hate how you can never explain it properly! Has anyone else experienced deja vu as a scene from a dream you had actually happening in real life? (I don't think that made sense...)
Interesting idea, @May_! I like it.
Hmmm.... I had actually had a weird dream the other night. One of my friends just moved into a rental property with her boyfriend and I dreamt that I went to visit them, and they'd been given a bunch of keyrings by one of their friends. My friend's boyfriend gave me a keyring but my friend wasn't there.
I went to the shops to find her (no idea why I'd look there) and when I found her she walked away from me and no matter how I tried to catch up to her, she was always just out of my reach.
Don't know what that means but thought I'd share, haha
Yeah, I like thinking about the symbolic meaning of dreams too @May_ and I think sometimes the meaning can be really clear e.g. when I was going for my driving test I kept dreaming that the brakes on the car failed (not pleasant!) but other times they can just be really random.
Have any of your dreams been particularly memorable?
Seen something fantastic on the forums?
