Are You a Professional Dreamer?

Kynky Kytty Kynky Kytty
I have started a blog that I will be using as a diary of dreams. It needs a little more work, but I will be adding at least a dream every day. I just have to catch up on the notes I kept recently.

It takes practice being able to remember one's dreams clearly, and I enjoy remembering them, and to observe how things in my life can sometimes be found in my dreams. Since I don't really watch the news or read newspapers, it's always something to talk about in a conversation. It has never failed me before.

I'm wondering about who else is able to remember clearly several dreams they had during the night, with clear details about who, what, where, colors, and logical and not so logical sequence of events. Are you sometimes able to remember the transition between your dreams? What do you think makes it more easier to remember dreams after waking up?

I have practiced lucid dreaming since I was a child. It was a way to stop and control my night terrors. Being sensitive my dreams can be rather prophetic and I also dream in archtypes that are surprisingly accurate. I keep a dream journal and also do dream interpretation for friends. I should say I teach people how to interpret their dreams because so much is subjective...for instance flying is one person's dream might indicate a short astral projection, for someone else it might indicate the desire for freedom, yet another might see it as hope or a message from spirit. It's a fascinating pursuit!

I have read a lot about sleep. Most of the different articles or books that I have read all seem to contradict each other somewhat, so I get the feeling that we are a long ways off from really understanding sleep. A few things however do seem to be consistent with my own experiences.

You dream during Rem sleep. Rem sleep is the first and lightest stage of sleep. You go through a number of sleep cycles when you sleep. After 3 hours (of ideal sleep) you go back to Rem Sleep and repeat this cycle a second time. This is the point in the middle of the night where you might wake up to go to the bathroom or get a drink... and you also may remember a dream you were having. Then you go back to sleep and after another 3 hours you go back into Rem sleep. This is the general area where a lot of peoples alarm clocks may go off and you may remember a dream.

I start to dream very quickly upon falling asleep, but I usually don't remember the specifics unless it was a dream that realized itself in vivid detail. Many times, if I'm just falling asleep in class (heh), I'll wake up knowing that I dreamed, but not knowing (or caring) what it was I dreamed about. I enjoy having "epic" dreams that have a plot. I used to have terrible nightmares, including one that I still remember very clearly where I tried to wake up from my dream and then saw the nightmare opening up over my head and dragging me back in. I finally learned to confront the bad things in my dreams, so even though I still have scary ones every now and then, I know it's better to fight it than to run away from it.

I don't remember all of them, usually just the nightmares. Those all get written down for exploration

I can't say that I've been blessed, but I've had rather vivid reoccurring dreams and also new dreams since childhood. As early as 3 years old I can remember.
All the women in my family are vivid dreamers, especially my mothers side. I remember all of my dreams, and can recall the dreams in perfect detail. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it really just sucks. Often a dream may actually become truth.

I have detailed, long, colorful dreams, often with detailed plots and characters. When I write less fiction, I dream more, sometimes to the point of being exhausted and slightly crazed from not getting enough non-REM sleep.

Some of my dreams are very real. I can taste, smell, feel what is happening in them. Other times not as much but I will remember them in detail. Also I know that my dreams last more than a few seconds like they say they do. What I tend to have are dreams that go from one scene to the next that are somehow in some strange way connected to each other.

Another thing is that sometimes I can control my dreams. I have sleep apnea. And I used to panic when it would happen, which would only make it worse. Since then I have learned to interrupt those episodes by telling my self to calm down, breathe, and wake up. I found it really works. And sometimes I can direct other vivid dreams as well.

Mine can really differ depending on the night, I find it has a lot to do with my frame of mine before going to bed. Sometimes I'll remember them as I'm waking up and I can be almost lucid during them and then others I'll have no immediate memory of but then have a flash of it during the day, then there's nights that I remember nothing at all about any dreams.

Also I find that if I am feeling sick to my stomach I end up with crazy nightmares.

I have very movie-like type of dreams. I am an observer and a character at the same time in my dreams and they are very clear. Its is as clear to my mind as though I am awake and I experience stess related to the dream.

I do not really have control over my dreams usually. I am starting to have more control since I started wearing opal earings. I have been having really nice dreams that are very spiritual experiences for me and if I drink alcohol I do not recall having these dreams if I have them at all.

I wish I could help. I used to dream quite vividly, TOO vividly, in fact. (I used to get Sleep Paralysis regularly, and it was terrifying.)

Years of antidepressant and meds for my migraine and fibromyalgia has pretty much robbed me of remembering dreams. Once in a while I remember one, but not often anymore. On the good side, the meds also chased away the Sleep Paralysis and horrible nightmares, which is a releif.

I frequently remember dreams in great detail after waking and if someone I trust is around I like to tell them about it.

I used to have much more lucid dreams but for some reason thats diminished lately. My most lucid dreams play out like this now: I want to do something that would have consequences in real life but I convince myself it's just a dream so it's ok. I lose control after that though and the dream frequently transitions into something else entirely or I wake up

I remember dreams only when I wake up from them. So basically, only the really bad ones.

Usually I can remember they factors in the dream, as long as I wake up after each dream. sometimes this has me waking up 3 or 4 times a night. If I really liked the dream I can remember more of it. The weird thing is, that sometimes I realize I am dreaming, and can choose to wake myself up or stay in the dream more aware. I can only do this on rare occasions though. most of the time when I realize that it is all a dream I wake up a few seconds later, and as long as I think about the dream while it is fresh in my mind, I will remember it the whole day, or even for years to come. On the other hand, if I do not think about the dream when I wake up, it will be lost forever.

I have insane dreams and usually remember the important points and occasionally flash back on them.

I used to remember my dreams, at least for a few seconds after I woke up, but now that is an infrequent occurrence. To remember it, it has to be a strongly emotional dream that wakes me up with my heart pounding.

I really try not to remember my dreams. I've had some very, very horrible experiences with them, and I do my best to try to block them from my memory. When I do manage to still retain one or two usually they are about something thats going to happen in my life in the coming weeks.

You can call the bullshit card on me all you want, but what I'm about to say is perfectly true.

December of 2009, just before Christmas, I had a horrifying dream that someone close to me was going to have a heart attack. I couldn't completly make out who it was, but from the body build my general assumption I thought it was my guild leader from World of Warcraft. {I know, super geek here..} My guild leader at the time and my mom had very similar body types, so I thought it was her. So I warned her, and then two weeks later my mom had a heart attack.

This wasn't the first time something like that has happened. Usually it's about smaller things. Places I'll go, people I meat. Small stuff. But this was the first time something like that had happened, and it really scared me.

I have blogged my dreams in the past because some are so intense. Im a zombie freak so I have zombie dreams on a regular basis. Just think of a multitude of zombie flicks thrown into one and me as the star, thats usually what I wake up from in the am. It takes a lot of time to write them down tho. Ive always wished I could video record my dreams for the world to watch. Give everyone a glimpse of whats in my head, YIKES!

I only dream when I'm upset or heavily contemplating something right before bed. I'm usually doing cartwheels, flying, swinging or running through a fun house where I get stuck in the hall of mirrors. A dream analyst would have a field day with all of the symbolism but I usually brush it off. The only ones that really bother me are the ones that betray what my waking my mind knows to be true about my relationship. It's disorienting and I end up pissed off at my husband for no reason. Kind of a downer.

I don't keep track of them anymore. Most of my dreams are like card catalogs of mental images from my life. They've also been so realistic that I have confused dream for reality more than once. It's a symptom of sleep I can deal without.

I either remember or don't remember when I wake up in the morning. Normally when I wake up on my own I remember better, but when the alarm goes off I tend not to. I have never thought of writing them down and this idea really appeals to me now. A lot of times I will simply tell my partner as quickly as I can so I don't forget anything.

I have had some dreams where I feel very sluggish and get annoyed, but then I suddenly remind myself its a dream and I feel better about it. I'm not sure how I know I'm dreaming but whenever I get really annoyed I can figure it out.

I have always had total recall of my dreams and have been able to direct them. I just found out a few months ago this isn't normal and there is a name for it.

I recall a lot information on my dreams, but I'm not that able to direct them as I want. I mostly feel like a passive observer of my own actions, if it makes any sense.

Although if you happen to remember the name of that, I'd be curious to know.

Remembering your dreams means you didn't sleep as deeply.

I don't dream to often, but when I do I can usually remember most of the dream.

And I have intense nightmares more than nice dreams. If I am seeing other worlds and my dreams are real...they are so doomed.

Dreams are fascinating. I remember if I get woke up in the middle of one, but otherwise they go forgotten. Makes me sad.
