Dreams

Post by JupiterTaco » Sun May 05, 2019 4:03 pm

Do you dream in color or black and white? I've always dreamed in color and I was surprised to learn that some people don't, which is one way "visitation dreams" are supposedly separated from non-visitation dreams, so I was just curious.

always colors. especially happy dreams have bright colors. scary ones tend to be dark. poor sleep (like eating/drinking before sleep) creates more dreams.

I have extremely vivid dreams, always in color. I have also experienced amazing lucid dreams and night terrors/sleep paralysis (horrifying) since I was a child.

Interesting, Daydreamer, thanks for that info!

BuryAFriend, I actually have a thread about sleep paralysis in the spiritual section if you're interested in talking about those experiences sometime.

I think i dream in color, cos when i dream of water, i remember what color its was, blue or muddy, or the sky and clouds, their colors are varied sometimes.

I went through a long phase of recording dreams and giving them a lot of significance. My dreams are really vivid (and writing them down makes them more so). I have places that I return to visiting so often that I started giving the places names and their own pages in the journal: "The Waterslide through the Forest," "The Overwhelming Turnstile Room," "Dilapidated Mega Museum" and so on.

I've tried lucid dreaming but it has never ever worked. I just wake up. One thing pretty neat about that, though, is if I'm dreaming and am in a nightmare, I have a sure-fire way of getting out of it: I pick up a random book and start reading it. If my brain feels more like I'm mentally writing the words on the page more so than reading them, suddenly, the "awaken" routine kicks in and I'm yoinked out of there. I can do the same thing with a dream TV set (before turning it on, predict the show, then if it's the show I'm thinking of, ask myself, "does it feel like I'm thinking the words coming out of the TV or am I listening to them?")

I have also observed that dreams might have a 'healing power' ? Sometimes when I feel very forlorn or down in the dumps, or just no sense of the future , I dream of certain people who comfort me. Like those with whom perhaps a connection has been lost , and there is no way to reconnect with them again. Or those with whom the relationship is heavily invested from my side , but their side. It's like my mind's way of giving me love or validation from those i want , and then making me feel better. The Mind has a mind of its own!
The last dream I had of such nature was of a long lost classmate from school.

And it works, cos I wake up feeling better than I did the ngiht before. The power of connection is so great, even if it be completely virtual.

Maybe that's why people are visited by their loved ones , in their dreams. When they are long gone? Maybe the mind is healing itself ? Or it's creating its own reality in the only way it can ?
