Subject says it all!
I had a strange one recently, though most of my dreams aren't at all based in common reality, this one stood out not only because it felt like I was in a situation that could happen (in non-dream standards, mind you), but I was also me at an age of I think around 12-13. It also featured my little sister, around the age of 7 or 8 (her current age).
Basically what happens is that our mother who I can only assume is the last surviving of her family dies, and we were left to go live with our older adoptive sister. This is all assumed, as in this is kind of the context I was feeling while in the dream, why things were happening, why I was there. Our older adoptive sister was an anthropomorphic possum though she didn't dress the same way I believe it was based on the main character from a webcomic called 'habits' or 'clementine' as some call it on vice because she was basically homeless. We walked around a downtown area of a medium sized city as she would drink alcohol and flip off cars that passed us by, edging us on to do so with her. I would, but my little sister wouldn't. Then she bought us slushies, poured alcohol into mine and I got drunk with her while my little sister just drank a normal slushy, after that I woke up.
I liked it, felt like I was having fun in the dream in the innocent way a kid at that age would despite the shitty situation.
I've been noticing recurring locations in my dreams lately. Being able to recognize them has helped me go lucid a few times. I wonder if it's worth trying to map them out? Here's some of the more common/familiar ones.
>the neighborhood I grew up in the dead of night, but all the trees have glowing purple flowers on them. When I can lucid dream in this place, flying is very difficult. I always feel like I'm being pulled downwards by my ankles. It's like I can jump very high and drift around, but not actually fly. I'm sure you know the feeling.
>A wide, fast-moving river with cottonwoods on the banks. I always start at the same place, but there's always something new downstream. I also tend to lose lucidity as I drift downstream. I usually end up in a canoe. This location is rather unique in that I always remember how I physically traveled to it; either I was running through the forest when I came to a tributary, or I was going on a trip with my old boy scout troop, or something like that. The sky is usually bright, but overcast with stratus clouds.
>A two-lane road on the side of a mountain. On one side is the steep slope rising up, on the other side is a beautiful, wide green valley. The sun is always incredibly bright here and directly overhead. There's something very captivating and beautiful about the simple blueness of the sky, there's never a cloud. There's a little patch of grass on the side of the road with a big rock on it. I often park my car there and just lay down in the grass and just stare up at the sky. Once I got to see the sunset there, and it remains as one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
Do you folks have recurring locations in your dreams? What are they like, do they mean anything?
I once had a dream that was really vivid. In it I was in love with a classmate that I hadn't seen in several years. I never spent much time thinking about her back then but did think she was kind of cute I guess.
Waking up from the dream it was like my body had sent out the actual "love-chemicals" that you get when you fall in love with someone for real. For the rest of the day I stalked her on facebook and couldn't stop thinking about how bizarre it all was, that the feeling of love didn't go away after waking up. The feeling did eventually pass towards the end of the day.
Anyone ever had something similar happen to them?
A.K.A: Share your blogpost about a nightmare you've had.
Lemme star by talking about mine, which for some reason, always seem to be disjointed for some reason. Had these yesterday.
First nightmare was me having a conversation to this sort of cockroach with human, slanted eyes with a mouth (kind of similar to David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch), about dissecting a human corpse, which was on a tiny table and was only a torso with a couple of organs with it's head and one arm cut off. As i was doing the operation, the cockroach thing kept talking to me about some non-sense i forgot, while blood kept spurting on my hands inside the human corpse's carcass.
Second one was me starting at the bottom of a sterile, white staircase (which i suppose was a hospital?), which had a backdoor of some sort. When i opened it, there was a large city road that had two groups of crowded people in different sides, arguing about some religion thing; one dude that was from the left side of the street, which was somebody i personally knew, started to fight with the other group which was on the right. Hugged him in an attempt to restrain him from getting his shit fucked by the mob of angry people, and pulled him inside the (what i suppose is) hospital's backdoor and locked it. He was lying unconscious on the floor, as i hopelessly tried to wake him up.
Ok, since most of the board is about night time dreaming, let's have a thread about real life dreams and aspirations.
What do you wish to achieve?
How do you plan to reach your goals?
What have you done so far to succeed?
What's keeping you down or what obstacles do you see in your path?
Tell us about your dreams anon, and hopefully we can help each other towards reaching our goals!
Does anyone here know if it is possible to induce a nightmare? (Preferably a natural method without any drugs or stuff like that)
I'm pretty bored I guess, I don't really experience anything in my life I just live in my room and I want to experience things you know? My life is so mundane, I don't even remember what fear feels like anymore.
I havn't had one in over 10 years I'd say.
Have you ever had a dream that felt so vivid and alive that you almost feel ashamed to forget about it? Like you would be doing the people in it a disservice? It's honestly breathtaking to have a dream that makes you want to switch realities with it.
I've had lots of dreams this month. I dreamnt a song for the first time today, I can still almost hear it. I'm telepathic and they are forewarnings.
So, what have you been daydreaming about, recently?
What's your current project?
I've been spending a lot of time pacing and thinking about ruling a medieval country, and what I would do.
Of course, first thing to do would be to get an expert blacksmith to listen to my explanation of trains, and clockwork, and Etc.
Just get the modern technology I understand made.
Then, I'd make a senate like this:
The King, with the equivalent of maybe 10~ votes, he would be trained from birth to be a good king, no partying, or anything, just studies.
This would be inherited.
The Ministers, with something like 2~ votes, all experts at their field, and, of course, responsible for various sections of the government, like the Education Minister, the War Minister, the Entertainment Minister(Scheduling public plays, sports games, festivals, Etc.), Etc.
They would not be elected, but be chosen by their predecessor.
Then there would be the Noble Senators, elected from the nobility, only nobles could apply. They would number something like 1/10th~ of the Common Senators.
And the Common Senators, elected from the people, only commoners could apply. Elected from the people.
The Senators would have a single vote.
Anyway, that's just the gist of it, what do you think?
Just saw this cool little Chan on /qa/.
this is my dream about 'the basket game'.
some people had stopped a whole group of randoms on the street to play a game.
can't remember really the details butit involved "basketing" them into two groups
with some kind of hypnotic/arabic drone music playing to subdue everyone.
for some reason at this point all the people being basketed were hot as fuck girls
in one group they were in bikinis one girl with polkadot bikini was stretching her leg
up. other group was more middle eastern outfits, all white lace/braided stuff.
i was just kind of walking around watching what was going on, lots of people were.
but i heard one of the organizers talking about how they were going to start killing
the people, and then killing them at a greater depth and number. (cant remember the exact
at this point thanks to dream continuity it's happening inside red rooms of a large mansion,
im the only one watching and got to see the hot girls in their bikini think they were just playing a nice game but about to get killed? in one room. getting pushed together closer. go through to the other room and the other group are all syrian looking and they're naked (pussies showing) except for their lace/braided headwear things. I think i woke up there..
What's your favorite dream you had this month?
I had a dream earlier this month where I was in this awards ceremony kind of place. I left the huge room because I needed to use the restroom, I looked around the building and it took me forever to find a restroom but I eventually found a restroom in the parking a lot. I went to go use the restroom but It was blocked by two men in suits telling me that I must leave. I said no then they threw me out of the area. I found a long haired man who said that he was also kicked out of the building. We became friends and left the area and started walking till we hit a river. We both got on a small boat and drifted down the river. All of the sudden a whole bunch of men in suits started chasing us in their own boats. My new friend turned into a talking can of soda which I shook up and opened. I would fire bursts of soda towards the suited men and every time I knocked a few guys off of their boats, there would be this animation of this superhero flying out of my soda can to tell me I leveled up. I kept shooting at the until I eventually woke up.
So last night I had a dream that I will describe as a movie. It was a sequence of events that had nothing to do with me, my life or the world around me, I as a person wasn't even there, it was all fictional like watching a movie.
Have any of you had dreams like this? Why do they happen or what do they mean?
i've had a lot of trauma in my life, bodily, emotionally, and the two at the same time. most of it is body trauma that of course has emotional trauma directly related to it. i've had 11 surgeries before, and each one is exponentially harder on my mind than the last.
the first eight were on my eyes for acute strabismus, and on the eighth (age 15) i ended up not being completely unconscious for the first twenty minutes. that's more common than people think with surgeries on children, since too much anesthetic can kill a child very easily. it's better to do too little than be sued for malpractice.
my ninth surgery was at age 16, to remove a ruptured testicle from a violent encounter with a group of people who didn't like me. later that year i had my ninth and final eye surgery. it was relatively uneventful.
the last two were separate surgeries to remove shrapnel from a single welding accident.
i'm 21 now, and as i go through EMDR therapy for PTSD, everything is coming back very vividly and painfully. it's 3 am right now, and i'm awake because i have come to dread sleep. every dream is a mundane, hazy vision of being in a hospital bed. the room is well lit, as hospitals are, there are no windows, and always one or two people semi-visible in my peripheral vision. i can move, but not with any meaningful control over myself, and never enough to get up or get the attention of the passing figures.
it's been four weeks, and every night it's the same dream. does anyone here have any advice to give me? i can't stop the therapy but i really can't continue dreaming like this. it's never restful and i just want everything to stop.
Hey, I'm >>316
I had two nightmares in a semi-coherent stream.
The first dream felt around four hours long, with the first three being many quick vignettes of very stressful situations. The final hour placed me in a mountainous desert, very similar to parts of New Mexico's Florida Mountains. After walking though very familiar desert I found myself in a flat pine barren filled with dead or dying trees, and a ground covered in loose dust. The dead trees gave way to dark green trees, and later more uneven ground, leaving me in a forest similar to Gila National Park in New Mexico.
As usual in my dreams, this atmosphere was retained when my stream of consciousness was suddenly placed on a black asphalt road in what struck me as the same forest. I was standing near a shiny black and chrome object that I recognized as a car, then a figure inside the object noticed me and drove away. "Noticing" me included implanting the outcome of a statement in my head, which I understood as the figure leaving me there for something or someone it knows. The road ahead me turned softly into the trees, and a smaller road the size of a sidewalk extended perpendicular to the wider road. I walked down the smaller road, which was suddenly rain-slick without it having rained. It felt very cold and humid. To my either side were two rows of trees placed equidistant from each other, with the second row placed between and slightly beyond the inner row, creating a staggered formation concealing the fields beyond them.
I had lots of dreams and aspirations but I lost them
It was a long dream
there were many recurring themes I often dream
I was on an island, it was some sort of re-union or prize giving
I had flunked (I often dream of failing exams) and was wandering the grounds and building
I visited the shower block and the toilets were overflowing, I had to hide from other people and danger
I was followed by women
every single women there wanted to have sex with me
They were lifting up their clothes, showing off their underwear, talking cheap talk
I was almost forced to have sex with all of them
they were over joyed and coaxed me to perform many acts on them all
all of them were older than me
As enjoyable as it was to witness their explicit flirtation it had a nightmarish element to it
They coaxed me on to send my desires out of my control and as I did what I had to to keep them happy I was aware that I was in jeopardy
This passed after I had given in to them and I stood on a veranda with marble colonnades looking out to sea
Post art which reminds you of your dreams in this thread.
I am living with aphantasia and I have zero ability to picture something in my head. The only time I have a chance is when I'm dreaming but its about a 2/10 visualization (1 being absolutely nothing and 10 being very clear). I can pretty much see nothing but the only thing I can play out clearly in my mind when I'm dreaming is character movement from video games. What I mean by that is that I process in my mind video character movement (such as Overwatch) in fights with replays for possible movements outcomes. To be clear I don't actually "see" the characters I just label move speeds on some form of phantom that is recognizable to me but has almost no identifiable characteristics. Also when I do dream of other things I can only feel the emotions of the dream but not see anything. The result is a crap ton of Deja Vu because there is no perquisites besides the flow of emotion I feel. Help
Have you ever had a happy dream about a person that you miss only to wake up and sadly realize that you were dreaming?
General dream feels thread.
This board is also to discuss personal aspirations too? It doesn't seem to clear for me.
Also, I apologize if I can't make myself clear, english isn't my native tongue.
How often do you all get sexy dreams?
ITT:Worst nightmare you ever had.
I remember some sort of flying craft coming out of the sea disc shaped but with a kind of tail. Then being submerged in the ocean next to statues of Minotaur and mermaids. Remind me of Atlantis.
Then the other night I was with this beautiful classy blonde lady in her mid to late thirties it felt like a romantic Encounter then she was worried about something because she was on trial, after she disappeared I saw her name written on a piece of paper it was Jane Mary Antoinette like the Antoinette of the French Revolution.
Last night remember talking to the lead architect of Washington DC and asked him why the obelisk was exactly 666 feet tall he mentioned something about there being lots of statues of deities and was not necessarily an evil thing.
I don't really know where these visions come from but I have a lot like this and this was just the last few days.
Day two of the 2016 dream journal. I'd suggest everyone try one for 2016, you're not too far behind yet. If you can't remember anything, just write that you can't remember anything. I'm typing mine. Is this anyone else's new years "resolution"?
I've a dream to tell
and it has numbers and signs. It is my belief that they are carried down from a long time ago again and again and altered. Wether we prosper and are well or are cut down bar the one. That they are the thoughts and directions or less bold to tell you you are not alone and that many years agree and back our actions. I personally think that self sacrifice is important but this changes to each believer. Ultimately the same goal. I hear you and will try to succeed, leave what I can and be amongst you as the person I am.
bow down and give thanks and live to my beliefs
Just drank a bunch of apple cider, ready to make my dreams absolutely loco!
do you guys get those falling dreams often?
I don't even know if this image will fit
Do you guys have any dreams that you remember a long time ago?
I remember trying to stay awake in the real world and suddenly the steel door from Jimmy Neutron's blast appear and I was back at my old school, essentially telling me that I failed in staying awake. It looked fairly normal and I remembered pushing a cart around until a decided to use the fire alarm. These blue, slightly technologically themed tale people appear out of lights and started to grab students and hug them towards their chests and I was one of them. My vision became blue static and thats when I woke up.
I was watching a video at night while I was extremely tired. I drifted into a dream of me in a empty bus at night and I had my laptop on my lap with the audio of the video playing. The strangest thing is that I woke up from the dream before the video (In non-dream world) ended. The video was only about 15 minutes long. What I'm saying is that I dreamed for about 10 minutes. It felt very strange and I never had anything like that before. Do you guys know what happened?
A new dream
I don't normally have dreams but this one was pretty freaky
>its me sleeping, as usual. in fist person view
>hear loud knocking on door downstairs
>eventually the door opens, loudly
>I hear loud noises from downstairs
>an old womens voice, with the sound of crashes and whatnot in the kitchen
>loud steps are coming walking up the stairs now
>but I can't move
>still in bed
>loudly opens the door to my room
>(I live alone, btw)
>it's my grandmother, she's speaking jibberish
>she's german, and even I can tell she's not speaking german
>I lean up straight in my bed
>I can't move
>she runs over to me
>grabs my unmoving frozen head
>tilts it upward to the ceiling
>she says, 'North'
>I wake up
I can remember this well, unlike my other dreams
Any tips on remembering your dreams?
following on from my dream (horses, car, drive, beach lights, murder scene) I'm going to have a little talk (as something from somewhere is telling me to type this so here we go).
The conversation was that the five lights are possible guardians — I'm trying hard not to say guardian angels but that's the thing, maybe mine . So, ok. And then from a snatch of a line somewhere else "are we coming back?". Yes and no is the answer. But..says someone, not those bad people with the guns? They're not going to come back or go to heaven.
Mmmmm that's what you would like to think but I don't think it's true, they weren't right for their time or .. had some other function or didn't develop right, but we like to think only the Good come back and that bad is excluded from our thoughts on eternity.
I don't think so. I don't think the world views things the way we do, they are archetypes of people that we are always amongst and just as eternal. Sorry.
Do good and fix problems, clean up the dirty paw prints
I keep having dreams about a guy I know who won't talk to me anymore. They're good dreams where I run into him and have a good time and everything turns out OK but then I wake up and i get incredibly sad because it was just a dream
I was visited by a voice at night. The curtains were open, a square of light on the dark wall.
I sat up to attention and it started its conversation.
Last night I woke up from seeing this vivid battle of WW2 style proportions. Islamic state soldiers had brought the fight to the outside of a government building, either London or Berlin. It was rawer than any movie Id ever seen. Their bodies were getting torn to pieces by cannon fire as the entire place was engulfed in flames like napalm was being used, people were running for their lives. The whole thing was live on the news and the reporter was even disturbed by how graphic it was.
This alone is no big deal but its a recurring dream, last month I was walking around Westminster, it had been completely destroyed by the Blitz II, bombed to shit. Then I was in Tel Aviv and a bomb went off in a gay community. I woke up and a bomb had gone off in Israel but that happens all the time. However the amount of dreams I have verses how little I care for all this war politics makes me wonder what the future holds…no more watching the news for a start.
Is your dream journal a digital one (IE a txt file) or a real journal? Do you write in it right when you wake up?
I use a text file and keep it open, since I immediately jump on my computer in the morning anyways.
So when I smoked weed all the time I almost never dreamed. Sometimes when I would dream I would need a gun. (for whatever reason) when I would try to fire the gun it would never go off. Now I don't smoke and dream regularly. Why? The guns always go off Now too. Why?
Here's a somewhat lucid dream I had last night (Lucidity and I have a strange relationship, I can become aware of the fact I'm dreaming and exert some control over the dream, though I tend to be fairly limited to staying within the scenario - I rarely if ever can divert the trajectory of a dream to something new entirely):
I arrived with my friends at a local bar. The circumstances leading up to this situation are unclear, and I only gained lucidity once I entered. Someone had mentioned to me that the bar got some new arcade style games over by the digital jukebox and the slots, dartboard, etc. One of them was a sit down racer, with like the steering wheel and all that. So, I hopped in, and as I got through a race or two, I started to wonder if there was anything more to the game, secret shortcuts and the like. I opened up my phone and searched the name, which pulled up a page like gamefaqs which made a startling claim - you could use this machine to time travel if you hit the correct sequence of buttons, wheel turns, pedal manipulation, etc. I noticed the year on my phone, 2020. Well, I thought I may as well give it a shot, an opportunity to divert into a more interesting dream sequence. I followed along with the guide and punched in the correct sequence which would start the warping of time…and it worked! I hit the big yellow start button and had a very stereotypical TV sort of wormhole visual and it spat me out, but in an entirely different bar, but I recognized it. It was my hometown, and I was sitting in the seat of what looked like the same arcade game. Bartender asked me if I was going to keep pretending to be a racecar driver or actually buy a drink. I apologized and wandered outside, wondering if my friends in the other timestream would notice that I vanished into thin air. Checked my phone again and it said 2016.
Last night I had a dream that a stranger contacted me online, through something like MSN messenger. He started telling me stuff that only I should know about myself. Turns out he had gained access to my computer and to all of my posts on 4chan and various other websites and forums. I had this feeling like I should be horrified, but instead I was just worried and curious what would happen next. The guy didn't seem to be totally malicious. He wasn't trying to get at me sexually either. I got the impression that he had started out trying to prove something negative about me, but then gave up. As we talked he would spit out quotes of myself to me, things I had posted a while ago, and he summed up everything saying that I am pretty funny and I know alot about movies, then he listed a whole bunch of movies that both of us apparently like. He also mentioned that I always pause after I type a colon, but not after a semi-colon or any other punctuation. I also noticed for this dream that I was in my childhood home, and my parents were home and I was in jr. high and going to have to go to school soon. I don't really recall what happened towards the end. But by the end I was feeling pretty comfy. I was still worried about this random person who knew everything about me, but he seemed to like me and he didn't seem dangerous so I was a little bit calm and even kind of surprised that he seemed to think I was cool. Weird but cozy dream.
the subject says it all, I don't really think there needs to be a whole music board IMO but this should be able to exist and last a good while due to the current slow speed of the board
pic related is my first choice, I've fallen asleep to it so many times
the whole album:
Lately I have been dreaming a lot about my workplace. A strange reoccurring dream I can recall is falling asleep on the job and waking up like 30 minutes before my shift ends. I wake up to absolutely nothing having been done and I have to do a full day's of work within half an hour.
It's not quite a nightmare, but it isn't very pleasant either. What could it mean?
a board about dreams? alright
when did you have your first wet dream?
>night before the first day of eighth grade
>dream i am at my uncle's cabin on the porch
>girl i've never seen me before bends over railing
>go to town on her, she takes it
>finish in a creamy explosion
>woke up, spunk everywhere
>i felt like a man the next day at school
Like a month ago, i had a dream about swiming in the sea, then the water turned to mud, and i came out of it crawling. After i got back on my feet, i saw this giant being of light sitting in front of me meditating (i think).
i woke up feeling like it was some weird sh*t because of smoking a bowl right before sleeping, but then i saw this in my news feed.

Post a description of the last dream you had and interpret the dream of the poster above you. I'll start, I went to a movie theater to see aliens vs predator but the room they were playing the movie in wasnt a room but instead a swamp.
daydreams turn much too serious as you get older
I wanted to post about a great dream I had, but when I tried to do it I discovered that I had forgotten most details.
What is the best way to remember your dreams? What are your tricks, if you have any?
I'm about to smoke a j and do some dream root. Any advice?
Hello /dr/ i wanted to talk about a recurring dream i have and maybe seek some guidance as to what it could mean. Also share yours if you have and maybe we can help each other.
I have this recurring dream where i engage in a fight and maybe lose. To elaborate further, it wall starts with an intense feeling of anger, as if i'm being wronged somehow and it gets to a point where i can't take it anymore and lash out. Usually happens that i'm near the person who wronged me and i get closer and closer, call their attention and throw the first punch, but here's the kicker (no pun intended heh) as i continue hitting and fighting i notice i'm struggling to even hit em and every punch is like my hand is a pillow to them, completely harmless, now you'd think that i'm just fighting resilient people, but i've done everything from mushing their face to the wall, to hit them with a plank and again it all seems like i'm hitting with a pillow.
So at that moment upon which rage secedes and reason showers my brain, i stand aghast at the scenario of my dream and finally realize the inescapable reality of the situation, i shall never defeat my foe.
So i wake up.
Tell me more about this chan…
What? Talking about uboachan is against the rules? I don't see anything about that in the rules? Who is the owner of this place?
Often I daydream about having a yacht even though I really don't want a yacht.
Has anyone experienced sleep paralysis? I've had episodes pretty regularly since I was a kid, at least once a month.
How is it like to you? Do you get it going into or out of sleep? How are your thoughts immediately before going into sleep paralysis?
I can tell when it is coming on but usually am in an altered or hypnagogic/hypnopompic state, and I'll just slowly drift into it. It still occasionally surprises me, I feel drawn in.
Usually what I get now as far as delusions is a soft buzzing or grinding which seems innocuous at first, but ends up growing louder and louder and just feels insane and malevolent. I have in the past had sort of delusions or hallucinations, I think my earliest memory of this happening were with big spouts filling my room with water, but these don't happen as frequently any more. It is mostly just the buzzing and some dark abstract dreams now.
I believe I usually get this going in to sleep. I'll be drifting off and it will just seize on me. I will no longer be able to move very much, and I'll lay there breathing waiting for it to end. It never ends unless I struggle, which leads to panic, which then leads to difficulty breathing. I do break out eventually though. I find it difficult to go back to sleep immediately, if I try to I just happen to go back into the sleep paralysis state. It helps to get up and do something else for half an hour before trying to sleep again at those times.
I believe I once got it sleeping in class. I tried to yell for help but could only manage a soft moan before I snapped out of it.
I waffled back and forth over posting this in /gf/ since it's ultimately about relaxing and bringing good vibes, but my gut told me it was really /dr/ at heart, so:
What kinds of music do y'all listen to when you just want to chill and sleep?
For me, it's jazz; putting on the MusicChoice jazz station, let the speakers ring, and just slide under the warmth of cymbals, string bass, and reedy tones. The ultimate comfy.
I had a dream a few months ago.
I can't quite remember the beginning. I was playing some kind of game with a disembodied voice in a cave. I was informed that I had lost, and was offered a consolation prize. It was a rather large box or chest hidden in one of the recesses of the cave. I opened it and inside it was another box. I opened box after box, and began to feel myself being drawn in, I felt as though I was falling into an infinite regress of boxes inside boxes.
/dr/ is a place to discuss night and day dreams.
