You ever feel like you dream too much?
Sometimes it feels too much. Last night it was zombies (with some girl I barely know I had a gun, felt her presence strongly) and then something about aliens. I was undergoing a check up of sorts, with that thing where they look in your ear and then checked my mouth. I dont think the result was good. Shit I dunno I feel a bit disturbed recalling it. It was like the examiner was also a driving test instructor (abstract symbolism) not a typical doctor. Dreams like this make it sound like Im going through some bad shit, but im not right now. Ive been feeling that Ive let a lot of stuff go. These are nitemares by many ppls standard but Im just use to this kind of crap..sort of.
Sometimes I wish I could just have one night without dreams.

Crop circles, then Spardot for some reason, gave her a hug to say thx for putting up with bs for website, was in a place where there had been a murder, the carpet had been changed so no clues. Then in India saw a big empty bread factory that was British owned. Then a bunch of guys playing football, I threw the ball in. Then I met my friend who im no longer friends with irl telling him about someone we know who got into heroin but is now clean. I hang out a lot with my old housemate, its weird cause irl I dont want to see him again.

I feel left out of all these discussions due to my frequent inability to recall my dreams. I don't naturally experience them every night. They only occur when I focus quite hard and they're never very vivid. How do you guys initiate dreams?

be aware of everything you do. when you open a door say in your mind, I am opening a door. when you go to bed say I am going to bed and what i might see is a dream.

eventually your subconscious will take over and you will have very nice vivid dreams.

For years I've been randomly experiencing false memories within my dreams. For instance I will be in the middle of a dream and then straight up 100% remember something funny a friend said the day before, and then I'll wake up and realize that shit never happened. I get all types of memories, sometimes even about people I've never met that I made up within my dream on the spot. The crazy thing is that these "false memories" are coming straight from my memory center in my brain, they feel completely real until I wake up. Memories are imprinted in your mind. You can shine a light on a dark wall and see something you did years ago, and the proof is the impression left in your mind. But how can your mind just fabricate impressions like that on the spot?

I've always been a semi-lucid dreamer, like I know it's a dream but I don't yet realize that dream reality isn't real reality, so I don't have complete control but I'm usually pretty clear headed. This makes these instances even more trippy. I also experience deja-vu in waking life relatively often. While the fake memory in the dream feels straight up like an actual memory, deja-vu feels more like a foggy memory is being channeled to you somehow for 5-10 seconds and you get the crazy feeling like this has happened before, and then it's gone. Maybe they are related?

Similar experiences?

Hey there, this happens to me a lot so I thought I'd share some thoughts. For starters I'm not always myself when I dream, and a lot of the people who are regulars and friends in my dreams aren't people that I know IRL either. I even have an apartment that I find myself in frequently that I consider my home and know like the back of my hand, but I have never actually lived there. I don't think it's beyond our minds to construct it's own characters and environments from scraps of memory, and even articulate another lifetime for you to immerse yourself in. Your mind can cook up plenty weirder stuff than that, so it's not really reaching to guess that your brain can store subconscious memory as well.
Though, if you are looking for speculation, maybe you are walking into other's dreams, and pulling faces and locations from their experiences. You say you experience deja vu frequently, this is perhaps due to a similar phenomenon where your own conscious version of reality is being read or accessed by another person, or alternate version of yourself from another timeline via subconscious retrieval.

I'm pretty sure that's a fairly common occurrence.
A lot of the time when I'm drifting to sleep I hear music play, either a mix of several different songs or something 100% brand new that my brain is conjuring up. In a dream I can have an entire universe with set rules and things I have to do, with friends and family that don't exist IRL, and sometimes I would even have memories of previous dreams while dreaming if there's enough similarity to it.

It usually takes a good hour or so after I wake up to separate the dream experiences from the real world, so I try to avoid speaking to people before then because everything gets kinda muddled.

I had a beautiful dream last night. I had cut off some people's limbs and stitched them together with wire so they became like a contraption so to speak.

I was obtaining two more victims one female and one male. The male ran and I saw he was hiding in a bath rub so I hit him over the head with a hammer until he died. Then I had a really nice surgical saw and cut him open out of curiosity. And saw what inner muscle systems and intestines looked like.

Of course he expected me to not murder him in the dream but I did anyways and with such force comically he was beheaded by the hammer.

Then I woke up.

I've always figured myself to be a psychopath or sociopath and is this dream telling me something about that?

No. Stop trying to fit yourself into useless categories. Many people can have very violent dreams. I myself have had dreams of murdering different people but this does not make me "mentally ill" (even if modern psychology would probably jump at the opportunity of assigning labels)

You should actually be considering the dream and its parts. Who were you killing? What were you killing them for? Where were you killing and with what? You should ask yourself the significance of these objects to you in your life history. Perhaps most important is the question, what events may have lead you to the present dreams?

I'm not going to interpret your dream, since that is frankly a dead end activity if one uses standardized meanings for objects, but you yourself are the best person who can determine the "meaning" to some extent.

I had a sadistic dream, in the sense I enjoyed the act I was doing it, last night. In this case, it was me murdering 4/8/pol/. Or at least what was my obsession with it. Though it might be more accurate to say that it was my obsession my politics in general right or left that is basically an addiction. Oddly the representation of it was a woman in victorian clothing, big ass skirt and all.

The method itself was vaporization via a Star Trek-ish phaser from behind, though it looked liked she died in a more video game-y with her fading into greyscale and disappearing altogether. Still, it felt kinda disturbing, and yet I enjoyed it. I think I was finally expressing my rage towards the entire shithole that is politics in general. And perhaps this is my own mind telling me that it's fine to let go of all of that and learn to enjoy life instead of worrying about all of that all the time.

Basically do what the above poster said. Have you been stressed out about something? My own violent dreams tend to happen when I'm stressed out about something.

I recently had a really unpleasant dream in which I snuck through a house and stabbed a baby through a duvet using a pair of scissors.
I didn't enjoy it in the dream and I certainly don't relish the memory, but I'm worried I might be going crazy or something.
Does anyone have any experience with this kind of thing?

Last night I had this dream where I got these huge, nasty boils on my arm. I popped one of 'em and it was just like this giant ball of pus that came out of it.

Then my arm fell off and I kept it wrapped in plastic bags until I could find a way to reattach it. I would mess around with it though and move the joints around like it was an action figure, or something. Eventually it felt like the wrist or something had broken because it went limp or started moving further than I think it should have. I took it out of the bag and the bone was broken, and there were large, V-shaped slices of meat missing from both sides of the wrist. It was all fucked up.

I remember being like "FUCK, NOW I DON'T HAVE AN ARM ANYMORE", but as I was saying this, I was real animated about it and noticed that I inexplicably had an arm in its place, and got real confused.

I gotta get rid of this fever, man. I hate these dreams.

Today I had a dream where I smoked weed with some boys and girls and then went away. I feel really nice and relaxed but a cop smells the weed on me and starts chasing through the city. He finally catches on the roof of a tall building when tells me he's not chasing me to arrest me but because he really wants some weed. Not a disturbing dream but I wanted to share because it's quite funny.

Fucking hell. Dreamt about a lesbian couple that had put a black female midget instead of a dildo on a strapon, and fucked eachother up the ass with it, though only with the head of the midget. Before every time they put her in again she would shout shit like "I'M GOING IN" or "PUT ME TO USE", etc, while laughing

And the dream segment before that everyone had made clay jew noses that they wore, don't remember the dream itself though, just that.

Body horror dreams are the worst.

I once had a dream in which my left arm was infected with these small holes with plastic yellow trim that would grow yellow erasers. It itched extremely bad and I tried to scratch them away, and then they would fall off after vigorous scratching only to grow back faster. Probably the worst dream I've ever had tbqh.

Hey fellas, had a question about my dreams. When I was younger, I would dream about all sorts of things, with all sorts of perspectives, some happy, some scary, some sad. For the last couple of years, however, 90% of my dreams take place in:

1) Malls
2) Schools
3) Airports

Every once in a while, I'll have a dream with a mall-airport, or a school-mall, etc. I'm always me in these dreams, and I am generally much happier in these dreams than I am in real life. What's strange is that I have social anxiety, and malls really fuck with me, but in these dreams, everything is awesome. Why is this?

Places like Malls, Schools, Airports, and Theme Parks are sort of like iconic settings in the brain for someplace *public*. As such, our subconscious interpretation of 'the public' is reflected in our interpretations of the environment. When you describe the interior as being very convoluted in appearance, this is probably similar to how you feel about social structure. It is over-elaborate and leaves you feeling lost.

That's generally how it occurs for most people except the exceedingly rare times it simply happens by chance or some sleep disorder is at play (or taking some kind of sleeping medication). That or attempts at lucid dreaming. I've had sleep paralysis 40+ times easily with only 3 of the times not being something I'd consider induced on my own.

Either that or incredibly relaxed
When I'm really relaxed I slowly descend into sleeping and that usually involves sleep paralysis, but the good kind where your room turns into a cool forest or something and there's no panic about not being able to move.

But yeah when I'm stressed I get the typical "demonic" sleep paralysis where shit in my environment is flying around or there's someone there and I can't tell if it's actually happening or not.

I can barely smell while awake, I can't think of a single time I have in a dream. Half the time when dreaming I don't actually hear things either, but instead simply understand that sounds happened. As in, I can get the entire impression of a conversation with somebody or whatever but not actually remember hearing their voice like it was external of me. Same with other noises/sounds

Yeah, false awakenings aren't all that strange mang. It also seems to be pretty regular for people who experience them to have multiple false awakenings in a row. I've had plenty myself, and whenever I do get them, I seem to wake up a good 3 to 5 times before actually waking up. I don't really get them especially often though.

Reality checks. I used to rewind my dreams all the time when full lucidity was easier for me, and got stuck in a few loops myself. It really sucks when you don't even know how long you are repeating, and don't know if the dream is over or not. Small reality checks are the best way to address this. Personally I think, the easiest and most successful method is to plug your nose and see if you can still breathe through it. Obviously, if you plug your nose and can still breathe through it, you aren't actually blocking your airways, just imagining it. There's lots of other methods, including the classic "pinch me" method, but that's just what I've found to work best, at least for me. Hope this helps.

I went into this museum at night, and down in the archives all these fossils and stuff were coming back to life and crawling around. There were three tall aliens in the center hall, and from the mezzanine I could see the stuff below moving around, like giant lizards and bugs/sea creatures. They wanted me to give them something but I wanted to know what they were going to use it for, and like... get something for it. And they just said that it was for humans and I was ultimately helping myself by giving it to them. They didn't speak with their mouths, they just kind of answered me telepathically. But I guess I was followed because a swat team busted in the entrance- I panicked and gave the data to the aliens on this little chip thing, and they were like "you did the right thing, good luck tho" and just kinda blinked away. I had to jump down into the flooded archives to escape, but there were giant crocodiles and shit so I ran into some sewer tunnels. There were stairways leading down and all the water was flowing down the steps. There were also all these mirrors on the walls as I went down, I couldn't see myself in them though so I broke through one and it was a one-way mirror with an empty office on the other side. I went through the office and came out in a hallway, there were swat officers in there telling me that there was sensitive information and I couldn't be back there. I started shapeshifting and attacking them with my tentacle arms but that's where it fades and I don't remember what happened, which is usually the case when I shapeshift too much.
Does anyone have an analysis or opinion on this that they'd like to relate? I don't have lots of people irl that I can talk to about this stuff.
