I dreamed a dream


Dreams are very peculiar things. Occasionally, when I’ve had enough sleep, I have lucid dreams. While this can be incredibly amazing, it does make interpreting my dreams a bit more difficult. I love lucid dreaming, don’t get me wrong. However, I sometimes wonder what my original choice would be or what the dream would play out to be because I basically can change whatever I want. Would I have subconsciously done the right thing in a dream? Not sure, because when you’re a lucid dreamer it’s extremely easy to switch the situation. I didn’t know I was a lucid dreamer until I saw the movie, Inception (Yes, it did take me that long to realize). While I can’t always go in and manipulate my dreams, I have a decent amount of self control in them.

There are many perks to lucid dreaming, but it really sucks when you can’t change the situation or you don’t realize you’re in a dream. Take today for instance, I had a dream this morning that made me depressed. I was furious that I didn’t realize dreaming. It gave me a negative outlook on the morning. I wanted to stay in and sleep the day away, or at the very least wallow for a few hours. It reminded me of the Friends episode where Phoebe is insanely mad at Ross. We don’t find out until the very end of the episode that Phoebe had a dream where Ross said she was boring and didn’t have a legitimate reason to be angry with him. I’ve definitely had one of these moments! It’s so hard to tell lucid dreaming from real life when the circumstances are life like.

I’ve come out of dreams and later that day I’ll be confused if the dream happened or not. One time I had to call my sister and ask her if she was mad at me because I was completely convinced she said something terrible to me, it turned out to be a dream. I know what you might be thinking, wouldn’t you know it was a dream? Well, in my experience, sometimes I don’t remember the dream I had that night but I remember the feelings that came with it. Or sometimes my dreams are quite spiteful and will change original memories. I remembered that sense of dread and wanting to talk to my sister and since I didn’t really know the true story of what happened I had to double check with her. Crazy, right?

What’s your experiences with dreams? Are you a lucid dreamer? Do you forget your dreams?
