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?

-Get more sleep
-Think about dreaming just before you go to sleep
-Write the dreams you do remember down asap
-Occasionally ask yourself if you're in a dream, so that it's easier to differenciate between dream and reality (this one didn't work for me)

I always go by the "dream journal" method

write down anything you can remember when you first wake up, even if its just your mood or a word or an image. If you do this everyday and long enough the idea is that you will expand your memory and be able to remember long vivid dreams.

works for me but I fall in and out of practice

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.

I get extremely detailed dreams every 3 days due to some medication I take every 3rd day. They are really intense and I wake up feeling very tired after them.

I had to write that down. Id forgotten until now.
>crop circles from the sky
Bit of a weird alien theme going on. Shit, I woke up one time feeling myself being dragged accross the floor, I felt them react to my waking. Still tho that kind of OBE sleep paralysis thing I associate with spirits rather than aliens. Fuck who knows?
I wish experiences like that wernt so real then I could say..it was just a dream

I had a period of a month or so over the winter where my dreams would exhaust me.

The were usually just dreams about work or regular bullshit, but I would wake up just as tired as when I laid down even though it had been 8 hours. These dreams would last litterally ALL night long. It really started to wear on my psyche but eventually I changed my sleeping arrangement and my work schedule started to change and I found a balance.

Nothing, how does one smell in a dream? I never smelled anything in my dreams and actually never thought of doing it. I have lucid dreams now and then and I'm aware I'm dreaming, but I never thought about sniffing around.

Sadistic dream

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 had a dream about a medical research facility last night.
It had everything a nightmare needs: Crazy surgeons, weird medical instruments, flesh and bones.
Except that it wasn't scary. It was exciting and interesting and made me horny.
MFW I'm a monster now.

False memories within 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 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?

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.
