>wake up in dream
>friend i know really well grabs me by the hand
>leads me into private room
>we start making out
>she pushes me down and i start eating her out until she cums

second dream
>friend i've known for years walks into the room full of people, weird because shes overseas
>go up to her and hug her, ask her why she turned up suddenly
>fall to the ground hugging
>she says her parents are sick and start tearing up

Does anybody else have reoccurring lucid dreams in the morning where most of the time you're in control of what's going on in a sense of doing what you want to do, but you lose your sense of hearing and sight temporarily only to regain and lose again? These dreams usually reoccur in the same setting with the same people and losing your sight and hearing is common only to be regained during the dream multiple times. There's also a reoccurring theme of violence. What is going on eh let me know whats poppin' been researching endlessly with no answers

I keep having recurring dreams about my ex girlfriend.
In one dream, we are together again, but there is no romance. We are basically just friends that haven't communicated in several years. This temporal distance is felt between us and causes a sense of tension. Sort of like I'm trying to prove that I've moved on and changed, but I'm trying not to trigger any negativity that may be residing from when we broke up.

Oddly enough, I've had dreams interacting in a similar fashion every night for the last few weeks. I realize where I am while we are sitting in the same room, often me visiting her while I'm back in town. We talk about how things are going while hanging out in her new apartment. Or we will go to a restaurant nearby and discuss how life has been over the years. I've been away in college, and I usually bring up my progress towards my degree and discuss jobs that I've worked and future opportunities I'm pursuing. Unfortunately, I usually mention missing her at least once or twice during the conversation, without trying to make it a main subject of discussion. More so just letting her know that she still sort of matters to me, despite the fact that my life has changed a lot. I still miss her.

One day we are talking and decide to go to a restaurant. When we walk in to the restaurant, we sit down at a long table with a young boy sitting down at the other end. When I sit down, she proceeds to get up from the table and walk to another table where she pulls out her cell phone and calls somebody. I assume she doesn't want me eavesdropping on the call, so I respect her privacy and don't question it much, just assume it's not my business.

The boy looks over to me, "hey, you're here with my mother, who are you?" Is this kid trolling me? Is he her son with another guy? Is he.... My son? "She has told me about you, you have been gone for many years. What have you been doing all this time, Dad?" Oh shit? He's supposed to be my son? "Why don't you ever come to see me? Are you as bad as she says you are?" What the fuck is she telling this kid? I try to explain that I wasn't even aware he existed, he seems to be a smart, if not brash kid. I further go on to explain that I've been busy working hard, and that I haven't stagnated in my life. Looking around my old town, I can't help but feel like things haven't changed much for her. Looking at the kid, I realize a lot has changed for her.

He goes on to question me with this condescending tone, as if he has heard about me everything he needed to hear before. Yup, he's my son, that little smart ass. I get defensive, and I can feel my temper slipping as I try to explain I'm not that bad. I can't help but catch myself trying to pin this negative impression of me on his mother, while simultaneously reinforcing it. I end up in a confusing hole of trying to defend myself while supporting what I assume he thinks of me. I try to calm myself and only focus on how I've been successful, and have actually missed them a lot over the years. How I wanted to be a good father, but never knew or had the time to know.

I look over to my ex, she is still sitting at the other table on her phone. Now she is observing me talking to her son. Seemingly narrating the event, I assume. Is she talking to her new boyfriend? Is she talking to her sister? Is she single? I don't know, but I do know that I felt an undeniable connection to our son.

I wanted to be there for them. My last thought was that her baby daddy was back in town, and didn't want to be as absent as I have been. But was it too late now?

Every person in a dream is a part of you.

You're trying to prove to yourself you have changed and grown, made progress. But you're missing the way things once were. (All symbolized by the ex.) Without those serious responsibilities. (A symbol of which is a kid. Huge responsibility.)

You fear you should have taken responsibility of your own life earlier, you fear you're too late (baby daddy).


You're not. Now is the time.

Is there a term that refers a dream literally coming true? For example, let's say you had a dream of talking to someone you've never met but then some time later you actually end up meeting talking to this person much like you did in that same dream. Then once you realize this was person that appeared in your dream, it feels like you're experiencing a moment of deja vu. Is there by any chance a word that refers to this sort of thing? I feel like this has happened to me quite a few times and so I've been curious to know what this is called.

Also if you've had a similar experience, post away.

precognition or pre-remembering maybe? happens to me fairly often as well. honestly I think it happens to everyone, people just don't remember their dreams with too much clarity.

in the book "An Experiment with Time" by J.W. Dunne this is discussed at some length

No, there is no such word.

You just have a glitch in facial recognition.

I know this, because before I started drawing portraits as a hobby, all faces were distinct and unique. After, I started realizing there were approx 7 different face types, and even less body types. Since then, I started getting the eerie feeling I know people from somewhere, by still met them for he first time, deja vu after deja vu. And I did. There was no such exact person I had met, but there were scores of others with those features and proportions. The archetype of which manifests in dreams, because that's how dreams work, they form faces suitable for that dream role out of all the faces you've ever seen.

I've never experienced "deja vu" as people usually describe it, but it's ALWAYS the dream stuff you're explaining right now.

What it feels like is, I've dreamt up a situation, woken up and thought "that was weird" and then forgotten about it, until the moment that the thing I dreamed happens and I'm suddenly like "wait, I've dreamt this before".

I've always just assumed that's what deja vu is for folk, but yeah it is ALWAYS dreaming.

At the same time though, it does always feel like I've forgotten the dream and I amre-remembering it, so my understanding is that it's just some weird brain-misfiring shit and I never REALLY dreamt it.

So last night I had my first ever lucid dream on accident. I was in the middle of the dream and then suddenly became aware that I was dreaming. At this same moment, 2 things happened.

  1. I suddenly became aware that the scenarios in dreams have hidden meanings (you know, how sometimes you just KNOW things in dreams for no reason?)

2. All of the other characters in my dream became aware that I was lucid and immediately were unhappy about it. Some even tried to wake me up and when I would ask them about this "secret" about dreams, they would slightly smile and shake their heads, knowing full well that I would be forced to destroy them in a super-saiyan ball of fire if they didn't tell me.

Anyone else look for "secrets" in your lucid dreams?

Most of my dreams are fairly lucid in that I know that I'm dreaming but I don't realize I can control them
It's the difference between walking around in reality while completely sober and walking around in reality while shitfaced on however much alcohol but still realizing you're in reality, except I'm dreaming and not in real life.

I do usually try to extract meaning from my dreams but unless I feel threatened I usually don't try to control them for the reason that you state. Violating the original meaning of the dream because I want to fly around and have fun isn't what I need right now. But when it gets too intense I usually do override them, and for this reason I hardly ever have nightmares but I do often have mindfuck pseudo-nightmares.

Whenever I realize I am dreaming, I immediately drop whatever good of bad is happening in that dream and start flying. Because that's the awesomest feelingthat I can only experience in a dream, never awake.

Except in those rare cases I haven't had enough sex. Then I drop all and proceed to fucking.

There are no secrets in my lucid dreams, as soon as I am conscious, I take control and steer it towards getting the most out of the situation and don't give a shit about the dream that preceded it.

Those are not lucid dreams at all. Period. Just as you ain't lucid when you're shitfaced. Duh.

Last night I had the worst sleep. I take it was from the series of dreams I had experienced.

Even though most of it is vague now, I remember this one the most. I was essentially sitting in my room hearing noises, hearing people say my name, odd non-human sounds and other assorted sounds. Turning around to see who was there. Full on audio hallucinations or perhaps schizophrenia.

It was unsettling because I thought it was real (because it was a dream, not a lucid dream man), waking up like it was a nightmare. Has any any experienced anything similar? Hallucinations - visual or audio in their dreams?

I've never seen this talked about around here, but does anyone here have this innate ability to realise that they're having a nightmare?

It seems that for awhile now I've had the first parts of nightmares which led to me seeing through the dream as it were and basically adopting godlike reality bending power as I generally do when this happens. I appreciate the trait-type thing, but I'm totally baffled by it. It seems like not to many people have or even know about it.

I feel like my nightmares are always more movie-like, it's not really happening to me, it's more of a scene that i'm watching. I feel helplessly detached when watching, I can't insert my own thoughts and can't make myself invincible or whatever because it doesn't concern me.

I think the last nightmare I had, I must've been in a puppy mill or something, because I was watching these puppies starving to death in a pen in a warehouse, one of them had died and the others were starting to realize that they could eat it.

Even in real life I don't know what I would do... Probably just cry and throw up for a while.

Yeah, sort of. I don't usually realize I'm dreaming but when something really bad is about to happen, I'll ask myself whether or not it's something I can really handle. If no I'll teleport away or something like that and momentarily realize that I have some degree of control but then I'll go back into un-lucidity.

I believe you would need to have an inherent sense of self and atleast a minute amount of interest in the dream state. As a personal example I use the popular method of holding my breath to wake myself up, I quite enjoy when this happens because I usually wake up at around 2am and can begin steps towards lucid dreaming. When my nightmare is viewing a movie like scene, I find this dream is trying to tell me something about my life rather then feed on my personal fears as is more common in a first person nightmare.

I don't remember the last time I really had a nightmare (you know, for realsies instead of just the intro). Usually one of two things happens: Either all the nightmare shit plays out but I don't have that nightmare anxiety feeling, which just makes it sort of a weird dream.
Or I just... I'm not sure if it has a name, so I'll call it a hard reset. Basically just a mental case of pressing ESC and quitting the 'game' or loading a previous safe.
Freezes the dream, ends the nightmare, and I'm off somewhere else in 5 seconds or less. Thank you gaming, I guess.

Closest thing to a nightmare I can remember having just involved me staring intently at a really freaky hairy caterpillar for what felt like ages at it vomited up hundreds of tiny hairy caterpillars that started eating the leaf it was on. Not scary or anything, but definitely weirded me the fuck out.

Anyway last night I had this dream about a girl who I used to talk to often wayyyyy back when I was like 15-19, never actually met her but she was always there for me online.

I have dreams about tornados all the times, probably at least once a week, for a couple years now. They aren't all tornados, sometimes just very severe weather, but very often I'm literally seeing tornados.

Sometimes I'm outside grasping at anything I can not to get sucked up. Sometimes I'm in a house and I can get somewhere I feel safe, other times the building has way too many windows everywhere and no basement. At least once I had been tricked by people outside the house with a truck with sirens on it that somehow tricked me into thinking there was a tornado. Many times there are bodies of water near me in these dreams, and I've even been on a boat with tornados appearing.

Why the fuck do I keep dreaming about tornados. They are scary and I hate them.

I pretty much never remember my dreams, this made lucid dreaming difficult for me when I started researching it years ago. I've noticed that the dreams I have in 2 hour naps are the most vivid and memorable. I doubt this is coincidence, as Wake Induced Lucid Dreaming deliberately sections off single REM cycles in similar chunks of time to produce more memorable lucid dreams.

I also remember my dreams when I wake up naturally without an alarm. Typically when I have an alarm set I am already busy and late by the time I'm conscious with no time for thinking about my dreams that were probably full of suffering anyway. I kept a dream journal for roughly a month and that was very interesting - it forced me to visualize and re-imagine what I dreamed about and gave a physical shape to the world I kept forgetting.

Sleep when you're tired, wake when you're rested.

So there's this...place, that I dream about, it's a common theme among a lot of my dreams. It's kinda like a hub world, in that I know all of these places that are connected, since I've seen the hub world in its entirety from afar, but the individual dreams themselves can take place in any one or more of the places connected to it.

Let me try to give you a visual.

The atmosphere is always dreary. Grey skies, fading grass, humid but not raining. I always enter the "hub world" from the same direction, and I don't know what's behind me when the dream starts. Ahead of me are three "zones".
To the right is the theme park, which I think is Disneyland but it's...run down. Aging. Abandoned, but regularly filled with kids on school trips. Specifically kids on school trips. They all seem to be having fun regardless. Right at the entrance is a roller coaster that is tall, but takes up about as much floor space as your average house. For whatever reason, I always look at this roller-coaster and curse myself for not riding it as I leave. Past that is a courtyard, which I know for certain is the blacktop from my old elementary school. I know there are rides and attractions beyond the front entrance, but I never quite get that far.
The center zone is the Arcade. It's actually just a small, dull grey building with a main room and two smaller rooms connected to it. The main room always has a giant Dance Dance Revolution clone in the center against the wall, and there are other rhythm games in this room as well that vary from dream to dream. One of the smaller room always has racing arcade games in it against the wall, and those coin-skillshot ticket machine games in the center. All nonspecific, but it's at least consistent. The other small room I've never been in to. In the main room are two sets of staircases which both lead down into an underground "deluxe" arcade zone. It's a very, very long staircase, but clad in gold and red carpet, it's all very regal and fancy. I've been down there once or twice. To note in the main room, there are doors on either side, one leads back to the Theme Park, and the other leads to the third zone.
