One time in first grade every night I told myself to ask if I was in a dream until one night I was dreaming and asked someone if I was dreaming. It wasnt lucid, but when I asked everyone got upset.

What's a "dreem"?? All I see when i go to sleep is a slow moving cart, my eyes slowly open. Tall pine trees all around. A man. And of course that phrase the is always always there; "Hey you, you're finally awake..."

Ever have a dream of your deepest desires? When you awake you just go back to bed to try and dream of it again.

My Lucid dreaming isn't complete lucid dreaming. I am sometimes aware I am dreaming, and can sometimes alter my dream if i try hard enough but I usually the only thing I gain is the awareness I am dreaming.

Mario (16 days ago)
I always have lucid dreams and I can decide when to get out of a dream if I wish to, I just simply jerk my body up until i hit my head against a wall or my bed's headboard. I hit my head a couple of times until I get out of the dream. Once I get out of a dream, it's pretty easy for me to get back into another dream.

I have a question WHY DO I LUCID DREAM ALMOST ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!! What happens if you lucid dream a lot what’s the meaning of it
VilxuX (20 days ago)
I am constantly having lucid dreams. I thought it was a common thing to be able to do whatever you want in a dream but i guess not. Is it normal to have these so often?

Maybe we don’t remember our dreams because our brain created them so it’s not an outside experience our brain wants to store

Does anyone have dreams were they are always in the third person
Static Applx (22 days ago)
I had this really really weird lucid dream, I was completely aware that I was dreaming (more on that later) but I was on the bus, I was driving on the road, and went off the road onto rocks and then off into the ocean, before we hit the bottom, the bus started flying, and we went over a hill and saw a giant tornado, this was shortly after we heard tornado sirens, it was when I saw the tornado, I kind of just dipped out of the dream, I woke myself up, completely aware that I did and that I could wake myself up, I did it on command though I couldn’t control my dream like lucid dreaming.

I made a fantastic animated video about why do we dream in the night. There is a comprehensive explanation of what exactly happens in your brain and why and what is the purpose of it. Feel free to check it out.
The Underrated Guy (14 days ago)
Well..lucid dreams can be fantastic. I mean these are the dreams where we are aware that we are in a dream and we can control the events. These is like that dream is a simulation and we are just controlling it from above. What if the 'real' us are inside such a simulation or 'dream'?
Jack Is Back. (24 days ago)
I would love to control my dreams!

HenryHelpMe (25 days ago)
I always find in hindsight when I wake up that my dreams follow my subconscious feelings, for example if I don’t think I can make a jump then I won’t, it seems fitting this is a result of my subconscious organizing itself and my consciousness interpreting it
Sometimes my dream come true like wth

Don't you hate it when you try to scream in a dream but you can't?
juni (29 days ago)
I think dreams are just you from another universe, so it’s actually real and happening. Once i had a dream where I looked in the mirror and i didn’t look like how i do in my current reality, totally different, but at the same time I recognised the reflection as me. It’s a very strange feeling that i lack the vocabulary to explain. I knew it was me but it didn’t look like how i did in this reality.

if dreams serve no purpose how come we have precognitive dreams of what is to come the next day or so?

Matthew Swanson (1 month ago)
Only once or twice (that I can remember) have I achieved a lucid dream. The most memorable was where someone was chasing me, and I didn't want them around me, I stopped running and thought to myself "wait a second, this is my dream, I can do whatever I want" and then turned around to the person and pointed my finger at them, and they disappeared. For the rest of the dream, I made all the decisions and everything was in my control. If only I could do that every night...

i remember some of my dreams thanks to that lucid dream thing When i gain the lucid thing about 2 years (or 4 or 3 ) After a few years and than boom it came back into my mind also i altered some things that happened in some of them Heres something weird in one of these dreams (before i got kucid dream) Mum, sister, me at train station train is going and its night but oh no its night a flash flood is about to happen (btw this is on high ground and the ground below is not flooded) so the flash flood is so dangerous we might die. (slow as heck in the dream we outran it) no it caught up lets jump on the train gets on train (with a couple of slips) oh no waterfall on track (tracks go down on waterfall underwater) jump off (lands safely even though its on a moving train on a rainy day and we all slip as we land) *looks down waterfall* Mum: You know how to swim? Me: No. Sister: Yes and thats all im gonna share

I've gotten into the habit of writing down my dreams as soon as I wake up from them. Sometimes I'm so sleepy when I write notes in the middle of the night, I wake up to check them in the morning and I can't understand what I wrote 😂
milton gutierrez saban (1 month ago)
for me the dreams are a way of the brain to tell you that your vision of the world can be resumed or changed according your necesities or aspirations, and as a defense mechanism or a simulation of danger, possibly surreal.
