    Remembering your dreams

    Discussion started by Lush - Jul 17, 2001

    Is anybody else out there really good at remembering their dreams? For some reason I almost always remember mine. I have these re-occuring ones quite frequently, and usually they're not the nice dreams, but the scary...odd ones that make me not want to sleep the next night.

    I had this terrible dream last night that I was with my boyfriend down at the tracks, and I was carrying a bucket of paint and a roller, and he was carrying one of those extender poles for me. A cop stopped us and arrested the both of us and we went to court, and then they put us in jail for 6 months. It got weirder from there on in.

    Somebody told me that if you eat before you go to bed that it makes your dreams not so friendly and happy. Does anybody know if there's any truth to that? and also another person told me that if you eat a banana before bed it helps you remember your dreams.

    I'm semi on beardo's side. I think it's interesting though, but I can't say I really believe it. Somebody once told me that your dreams are your brain trying to organize your day, or make sense of the things it couldn't file away. I think that's pretty close, because my dreams are usually a mish mash of things that happened, or that I saw during the day.

    true, they are not all crap, and it is very interesting. i guess i just have no faith in the validity of it all.

    to each his own right? I used to take psychology and I think it was around the time that we started learning about dreams and the mind -- that it sparked an interest with me. I do think that if we think about something so much -- that we'll eventually dream about it and it comes in the form of scattered collages. But I also find that it sometimes holds very important answers/messages for our life and perhaps can teach how to deal with things.. although -- there is a deeper meaning behind the surface. I don't know. I'm not making sense.

    it's all in my head.

    i agree with the books being a crock of shit... so far the interpretations have been contradictory... ex. someone said they had a dream about walking on the railroad or something... and then someone else interpreted the railroad as good things coming in the future, but walking on the railroad as trouble/distress.... how the hell does that make any sense?

    but anyway, the real reason i posted this reply... i hope that one day they invent a machine that they can hook shit up to your head while you sleep and record your dreams... how phat would that be to watch someone else's dreams or have people watch yours...

    another thing, someone mentioned that they can control their dreams... i used to be able to do that shit too... i used to be able to realize when i was dreaming and do whatever the fuck i wanted cuz i knew it wasnt real, it was awesome... yea, that's my story

    you obviously watched Final Fantasy: the spirits within, didnt you? But yes that would be very interesting, because then you'd be able to see the parts you can't remember, or had muddled in your mind. My dreams are usually quite fuzzy remembering them, kind of like an impressionists painting.

    I had a really fucked up nightmare last nite..that I was being chased.and I was somewhere strange..like in a swamp land area and 3 dudes with big old tech guns were looking for me..and I had a metal pole to ward them off.It sucked.So then a friend comes swooping up in a car..but the car was hollowed out and shiny metal and looked like the alien characters..all sectioned off..so he runs over one and another one spots me and starts peelin off caps..and I duck and somehow sneek up behind him and pop him in the head..and take his gun away and start popin caps in him.So then one of the dudes turns out ot be someone I used to live with..and he is dying from getting shot.from me..It was weird.I think I watched like 3 hours of crap on TV before tis and it fucked with me.I woke up and had to smoke a butt to calm down..I hate being super violent..especially in my dreams..I think I need to chill off watching the fuckin television..that shit is bad for me..I should benn out getting up anyways..
    So now I am going to listen to classical as I fall asleep..studies say it improves the quality and rememberance of dreams....TELEVISION IS BAD FOR YOU.

    Maybe it does... Almost no one I know takes anything I say seriously, so I don't know if I hurt people with my words often. Most sites I've looked into all point to the physical appearance thing. Secret, what does it mean? Is my penis going to shrivel and die? An upcoming brain aneurysm? You got me nervous now. Beer,

    the ability to control your dreams i believe is called lucid dreaming. this guy i know had one where he was fighting with light sabers. how fucking cool would that be?

    but i had this nightmare the other night that when i went out in the garage there were piles of spiders everywhere, not little spiders but like tarantulas and big crazy shit i've never seen before. we busted out raid, but everytime we'd back up we'd stumble over more. it was fucked up, first nightmare i can remember in years it seems like. then i read somewhere online that older dream interpretations say that spiders in your dreams are omens of good luck. when i read that i was like "yeah, fuck ya, you bastards." but then today i finally landed a job after a long time looking, found out i won't have to pay as much rent as i thought for the apartment i'm gonna move into, and found out my new neighbors are two cute cheerleaders with lots of cute friends. i'd say that's a nice streak of good luck.

    controlling dreams is really interesting. i had a psychology teacher who taught us how to control them. basically you fall asleep thinking of one scenario night after night. eventually your brain is supposed to catch on and as you drift into sleep, the scenario will start. it gets very boring though because you realize that half the fun in dreams is the gambling on what's going to happen.

    being able to see yourself is supposed to be a reflection of your level of consciousness. one goal is to be able to see your own body...like look down and look at your hands or feet. the highest is supposedly being able to look in the mirror and see your own reflection...odd. i've seen myself through someone else's eyes which was odd...i was both inside a batter and a pitcher at differnt times...like switching cameras.

    another thing is that people say that if you die in your dreams, you may die in real life. this is odd though because my best friend says he dies in his sleep all the time...car crashes, being shot, blown up...sucks.

    i had a bad string of ones a while back. i was going through some rough times and every night i'd have beautiful dreams...wife, kids, steady job, car, money, happiness...which would be good, except for the fact that i'd wake up in the same crap. haven't had any spectacular dreams lately.

    i'm tired

    This is kinda weird but i had a dream that i knocked a kid over from his chair that i didnt like. So it would be kinda twisted but i justified it considering i didn't like the person. other dreams involve school trauma like not finishing a project and having it due the next day. Heres a real weird one:
    last year before the first day of school i dreamt that on the way to school i forgot about a project which was to bring in rib mc' nuggets on a stick (!)
    haha
