your dreamin’

January 24, 2012

Do you remember your dreams?

I do! I have very vivid dreams almost every single night and can usually remember at least 2 of them. It’s crazy. I even go back to dreams. Like if I wake up in the middle of the night and go to the bathroom I will 9 times out of 10 fall right back into the same dream.

I don’t really mind it, per say, but sometimes it doesn’t leave me feeling rested. Sometimes I just want one of those deep, can’t remember a thing type of sleeps.

I feel like I should probably buy a dream book to see what they are telling me. I do truly believe that dreams are just a way of your subconscious working through whatever is going on in your head….good and bad.

Last night I dreamed I was being chased. So I looked it up.

To dream of being chased means that your daily concerns are inescapable. In dreams we confront our wishes and fears. Hopes and horrors. Unresolved issues that cause stress to our conscious mind find symbolic expression in our subconscious mind. The act of being pursued is the culmination of our unending responsibilities dogging us even as we sleep.

Definitely something for me to think about. I don’t think it is off base, actually. Maybe a dream book would be beneficial.

Do you remember your dreams?

Do you think they can tell us things about ourselves?

    Mine are usually hazy and vague. Sometimes I’ll remember a piece of the dream but as the day goes on they get foggier. It can be annoying when I feel like there was something worth remembering – ha!

    Interesting! My hair stylist said that she has heard that if you have dreams of your teeth falling out, that means something too! How random is that? I’m going to have to google it.

    I definitely remember my dreams and, frequently, I do the same thing as you and fall back into them if I wake up for some reason. A lot of times, when I alarm goes off, I don’t feel rested because I feel like I was up all night in my dreams.

    I definitely think they can tell us about ourselves, or at least what’s going on in those crazy brains of ours!

    I also remember my dreams every night. Last night I dreamed that I was Liz Lemon and sort of starting a thing with Jack (30 Rock). But we had to keep it on the DL. Then I was on an airplane with some friends dressed up in Halloween costumes. It’s apparently a thing to take Halloween flights to some place random, all all dressed up and partying on the plane.

    I think that part of the reason that I remember dreams is sleep apnea. You have to wake up during a dream to remember it, so since my apnea wakes me up during the night I usually remember at least one dream.

    I have crazy make-no-sense bizarro dreams all the time. I only remember them a few times a week – but they always freak me out.

    My dreams are bizarre. I’ve stopped trying to understand them and just accept that I might be a crazy person 🙂
